Focus T25 Day 3 AND Zumba

I won't feel my legs tomorrow. I just know it. I think they will fall off in my sleep. That's how I feel. I just struggled to sit with my legs crossed. Today is Wednesday so I teach Zumba over in White Plains with Z8fitness. I typically don't do other workouts when I teach Zumba because it takes a lot out of me. However, I've committed to following the calendar and so therefore, I am going to try my best to do just that. Ideally, I would have done Focus T25 in the morning and Zumba in the evening but I didn't have that luxury this morning. Therefore, I had to plan for a back to back workout.

Luckily, I have friends who are up for a challenge and when I asked them to join me for Zumba and Focus T25, they were in. I got some hesitation and some fear but they were in and I was excited. I packed my car in the morning on my way to work with my speakers, computer, workout dvds, clothes, towel, and workout mats for all of us to use. We did my Zumba class and then gathered up for some Shaun T action. Today was Total Body Circuit. It kicked our butts. At first everyone was a little hesitant about looking foolish but one of my friends brought up the idea of standing in a semi-circle so no one was in the front. I thought that was genius. image

It was fun to work out with friends, especially a routine that no one had done before. We were all on the same level of lost and it was great to have others to help me think about how to modify some of the moves. One of our biggest issues with the workout was that Shaun T doesn't focus enough on the moderations. The camera isn't even on the modifier for every move. So sometimes we just had to make it up. It's a very fast routine. I felt like every 30 seconds we were on to a next move. That made it difficult to follow. At one point, we were still trying to master the "plank walk pushups" when we looked up and noticed he was already on to another move.

It's all good though. I will master it soon. The best part.... WE DIDN'T DIE!!!!!

On to the meals. All my meals were entirely vegetarian. Feels good to not rely on meat everyday.

Breakfast: Chocolate Vegan Shakeology w cherries and Silk Vanilla Soy Snack: Trader Joe's Breakfast Trail Mix Lunch: Indian Buffet. Not sure what everything was but it was yummy and spicy. Picture below. Had no time for a second snack. Dinner was made entirely (except for evoo and balsamic vinegar) with ingredients from Stoneledge Farm who supplies these yummy vegetables for my CSA share. Heirloom tomatoes and basil in some extra virgin olive oil and roasted squash, eggplant, and fennel drizzled with a basil balsamic vinegar. Even the basil was from the farm. image

I love it. Take care of yourselves and improve step by step every single day. That's all we can do.
