Hooray – new workout today. Well, kind of. I still need to do Dynamic Strength, but then I get to torture myself for 5 minutes with a new core routine. Since its only 5 minutes, I’ll just do the workouts consecutively, and be done with it.
Imagine my surprise when I didn’t hate 5 minute core on the floor. Granted – it’s a core workout, and by design I’m built to loathe it. However, it went fast, and it spent a majority of its time in the plank position (which I don’t mind a ton). I’m not about to say, “…HOORAY, CAN’T WAIT FOR CORE ON THE FLOOR…,” but, I won’t dread it AS MUCH as Core Kinetics.
Did you know that Costco sells frozen avocado cubes now? That is a huge smoothie upgrade? I’m a big fan of avocados, but my biggest complaint is that they are either not ripe enough when you buy them, or they are super ripe when you buy them. Once you get home, you are kind of on the clock to use them (or you need to w-a-i-t). The frozen option takes some of the “pressure” off of using them.
Made a nice smoothie yesterday with protein powder, 1/2 cup of avocado cubes, 1/2 cup frozen peaches, 1 Scoop of Real Reds, and 1 TBSP almond butter. It was good!
Oh, and today is the first day I got through Sphinx Blasters in round 12 w/o stopping – I just plowed through and never went into downward dog. HOO-AH!
Move of the day: Balanced repeating side kick with tap down – really focusing on trying to get my kick higher and keep balance!
