Workout Wednesday 5/31
This week in fitness has been pretty uneventful for me. I've done my strength training and most of my cardio. Today I intended to do at last 30 minutes of my kickboxing video, but I only ended up doing 10. I know, it's terrible. But it's so HOT. And the cramps, oh god THE CRAMPS. I'm planning to take a walk tonight after it cools down, so that's something at least. I know I should feel worse about slacking today, but really, I just can't. I've been eating well. Keeping to my calorie goals and whatnot. I just figure that if I'm ever allowed to slack off, it's now. I'm hoping that things have eased up by Friday so I can get in a more strenuous workout, but otherwise I'll just take a long walk.
After sunset, though. Because the heat is just ridiculous right now. It's been upwards of 90 degrees for the past few days, and humid as hell. I hate summer in Pennsylvania. It's always so damn humid. But mostly I hate that it's not even June yet and it's 90 degrees. Seriously, global warming is the worst thing ever. I need to move someplace colder.
The only other thing really worth mentioning is that I picked up a used copy of Yourself! Fitness on the recommendation of a friend. It's like a personal trainer video game. It sounded awesome, but you know what? I can't fucking stand it. All of the cardio is your standard aerobics moves, and I've always hated aerobics. And for a game that claims to have a database of over 500 exercises - so that no two workouts are the same! - I have gotten the most repetitive sequences of moves ever. I swear to god I did squats and reverse lunges for 10 minutes straight. I don't know. I know a lot of people really like this thing, but I doubt I'll ever pick it up again. I'm glad I only paid $17.99 for it.
I'm going to be ordering a bunch of workout DVDs from Amazon sometime this week, so any suggestions are welcome!
