thirsty thursday.

thirsty thursday. no i do not mean go to the bars and get totally hammered because it’s $1 you call it.
i want you to challenge yourself to drink at least 2 liters of water today.
living in iowa, water is so crucial in the summertime. the humidity is awful especially when its 90 degrees outside.

yesterday during my class that i taught [step n tone], i had 5 people walk out. it was either way too difficult or they were getting way too hot. (the building i taught in is not air conditioned, we only had the joy of using fans.) i was even struggling and had a hard time breathing during most of it. especially the cardio bursts.

here’s what i did for my routine:
3 step combos
cardio burst
3 more step combos
cardio burst
put it all together
cardio burst – jump rope, pop squats, high knees, butt kicks, football fire feet

strength:
about 16 reps of each exercise

20 lb barbell: static lunges, bicep curls, overhead press
16 lb dumbbells: hammer curls, lateral raises
20 lb bar: squats, underhand rows, deadlifts
16 lb dumbbells: plie squat with upright row, bent over row, reverse flies
20 lb bar: chest press, hip lifts, tricep dips
16 lb dumbbells: chest fly, tricep extensions
AB work: crunches, side crunches, reverse crunches, bicycle crunches, planks

i was dying.
i got lots of great feeback from the people who did stay. šŸ™‚

 

waking up this morning at 5:30 was not expected. it’s only 10 am now and im ready for bed. hah šŸ™‚
i did enjoy fueling my body with this for breakfast:

that would be “breakfast cookie dough cereal” made with 1/3 cup oats mixed with 1 tbsp pb and 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder topped with 1 cup almond milk, 1 cup berries, and 1/2 cup kashi cinna raisin crunch cereal. mm.

STUDYing again….
