Down But Not Out!

I have been down lately, really down. Which means I have not been motivated to workout at all! Today, I am better, but not quite where I need to be, but I knew I needed to get back on the horse and workout or it would really be over for me.

The workout today focused on the upper body. They were trying to give my legs a break from all the lunges and squats I did during the last workout. Turns out that was completely unnecessary since I have not worked out since Tuesday. (I know, I know….Bad JJ) Emphasis was placed on my arms and shoulders. I also used my hips and got a little workout on my waist during the baseball and tennis exercises.

Because I have been such a HUGE slacker this week, I followed up my 20 Day Challenge workout with a workout from FIT TV on Xfinity. There was not a lot of cardio in my first work out, so I went with Cardio Hip Hop with Kendra Kemerley (I swear this chick looks just like Macy of off MTV’s Teen Mom). She called this a feel good workout that combined hip hop moves  with an easy to follow choreographed routine. Easy to follow not so much (I am not as young as I used to be). It did get my heart rate up and worked out my mid section (my biggest trouble spot) and worked my legs as well.

See you next time!
