Friday Running 30 minutes (with hills)

Not sure how far I ran again, still on vacation, but I took a different route to add some hills.

Plus- took the kids to an indoor carnival for almost 5 hours (while carrying the baby in the sling the whole time).

Thursday Kickboxing 40 minutes

I did Turbo Jam: Punch, Kick & Jam DVD from the library. Not real impressed. The only thing good about it was they added some Capoeira moves that I have never seen in a kickboxing workout before. It was pretty basic, and more aerobic style (which I don't like, I prefer to think I am actually practicing fighting, as opposed to practicing girly girly prancing around ;).

Kajukenbo 12/23


forms 35-40 minutes

mat work

Wednesday Exercise Bike + Strength 40 minutes

30 minutes exercise bike. 5 minutes standing abs. 5 minutes arms. I've gotten stronger, so my arm workout goes faster (since I can use two 10 lb free weights at once, one for each arm, instead of switching one 10 lb free weight between arms). It's nice because I can do a shorter workout and I still feel my arms getting stronger.

around working on my music in my pj's till about 3:00 in the afternoon. By then I felt like a total slime ball. So I ran stairs for 40 minutes, then took a shower and got dressed, felt reasonably human again.

Kajukenbo class 12/2

Four of us total tonight, including a local policeman.

Worked on forms.

Dirty boxing on BOB (see previous post). Dirty boxing is basically being able to hold someone as you hit them. Modern boxing does not really allow this. Very specifically it is holding the target where it cannot move and lessen the impact.

Awareness drill- start on doing Kajukenbo style ground and pound (like this) on a kicking shield on a mat while everyone circled. At various points, someone would charge the person in the center. They were supposed to be aware even if they were on the offensive. The idea being don't focus entirely on the one attacker, he may have friends.

Thursday Exercise Bike + Strength 40 minutes

Exercise Bike- 20 minutes. Strength (arms + standing abs) 20 minutes. This cold is sucking the life out of me, but I will keep working out! Rah!

Here and There

Sorry! It's been too long. I read everyone else's posts, but don't post myself! I have been plugging away at my little routine, Just Dance 2 followed by some Pilates. Haven't seen any major weight loss. Probably because I chase my workout down with a doughnut. (or two...) I need to revisit the diet. It's so easy to get into the bad habits of just grabbing something premade and sweet. Also! In February, I will be doing a workout bootcamp. I don't know what possessed me, but it was on Groupon. 4:30 am everyday for a month. It may just kill me. Thinking about it sends me into conniptions.


I got up at 4:20, but I just didn't feel like being up yet. So I stayed in bed for another 45 minutes then got up and made pumpkin bread, then rode the bike in the basement for 30 minutes all while listening to scriptures on CD. So, I feel it was a good compromise. The workout wasn't quite as good, but it still counts, plus I made a good breakfast and got my scriptures in using the same amount of time it would have taken me to get dressed for the cold, drive, run, and drive back home. I even had time to read scriptures with the kids before school and shower and get myself plus the two little ones dressed and ready to walk out the door before 8:15. Now I've got to get motivating and clean up breakfast and take Justice to Thursday school, then do the grocery shopping, then pick Justice up, then put the groceries away (which BTW is a big task with our family). THEN I will probably collapse in a big heap. Did I mention that though I stayed in bed for an extra 45 minutes, I wasn't able to go back to sleep. Got to go now! Love you all!
