Happy Fit Friday!!
What a day I am having so far (in the bad way)
I had to teach at Coweta this morning at 5:30AM and I hit snooze until 4:57AM, which means I was going to be late, because I live on the other side of the earth from Coweta. So, I jumped up, grabbed my tooth brush, brushed my teeth with no toothpaste, while running around in the dark trying to find clothes, socks and my shoes. After finding what I thought was all matching attire, I threw my toothbrush in the sink and then jumped in my clothes and put on my shoes. I was out the door by 5:02AM. I AM DRIVING…I, I AM DRIVING!!! THEN….. I miss my exit, so clover leaf turn around on the Creek Turnpike here I come (speeding now).
I make it to the gym, no speeding ticket and 2 minutes early!! I walk into the studio and of course everyone is there waiting on me because I still have to set up my bench and barbell. One of the women, who is a HOOT BTW, says, “Nice outfit this morning Tawna. You must have dressed in the dark.”
I looked at my self in the mirror and I was wearing gray pants with a purple stripe down the side, a gray, black and purple top (completely clashing grays and purples, which is why it looked so ridiculous…I thought I grabbed black pants), and 2 different shoes. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Who am I? Punky Brewster?! TOTALLY embarrassing!!!
Having said that, we made it through the workout!! Then I get home and am waiting on a couch that I have ordered from West Elm. They said the delivery window was going to be between 8:00AM and 10:00AM. My phone rings, I thinks its the driver telling me he is 30 minutes away. Nope. Its the dispatcher telling me the driver is running an hour and a half behind.
“Is that OK?” she asks me.
Yeah it’s totally fine. I have absolutely nothing better to do with my day than sit around and wait 6 hours for your delivery driver.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN IS IT OK?! What if I say “No lady, it’s not ok. He needs to be here in 30 minutes or my couch is free” This isn’t a pizza delivery. I can’t say “No it’s not OK” so don’t ask me if it’s ok. You and I both know that it’s going to be ok because I want my stinking couch that I have been waiting for for 12 weeks (that’s a completely different blog post story in itself). To sum it up NEVER order anything from West Elm!!! THEY SUCK!
And guess what, it’s 12:45AM and still no couch. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
Whew!! That felt good to talk about.
OK, enough about me, lets talk about your workout…
I have been doing a lot of strenght training and lacking in the cardio department so lets do it!
Rather than do another treadmill interval workout, I thought we could try some cardio bodyweight exercises instead.
Complete 1 minute of each exercise resting 30 seconds to 1 minute in between. If you think the plank work will be too difficult to complete back to back feel free to change the order of the exercise. These can be done in ANY order you want. ENJOY!
