we took 3 days off last weekend while we were down at the beach. it was great to just chill and relax!! not have to really think about anything else.
then Monday morning came, ya we were exhausted from traveling, staying up late, eating whatever, and drinking too much that we could of slept in that morning…but we didn’t!
we got right back into our workout routine. okay well it took us two days to really get back into our routine. we must say we are proud of ourselves! proud we did not come up with excuses. just accepted our weekend (of fun!) and just moved on. as in the past, we would of found excuses, like well what is one more day. one more day to eat whatever, etc. not this time. no more making silly excuses.
okay, now onto our workouts thus far this week.
Monday – 12 minute equalizer workout with a 20 minute casual walk outside. for our workout we grabbed our Gymboss Interval Timer (affiliate link) and set the timer to 18 rounds of 10 second rest and 30 second work.
here is what we did: (**we are not personal trainers, so please consult your doctor before starting any new workout routine)
seriously loving our equalizer. so much fun and works our muscles in a new way.
Tuesday – Tone It Up Bikini Strap Workout – took us under 20 minutes to complete 3 rounds of 20 reps.
Thursday – YOGA. we finally did some much needed yoga! we each did our own 30 minute session at home. it was hard to start the day much slower than our normal HIIT workouts, but we realize we need yoga to help slow us down. both of us feel relaxed and ready to start the day. our goal is to yoga at least once a week, and try to work our way up to more.
we are feeling great. a little sore though. we feel the best thing to help with being sore is to keep moving the body.
and now onto a question we have been receiving a lot lately. as you may have noticed we no longer really do much bodyrock tv workouts anymore. it was a personal decision by us too.
as many of you know a few years ago we were HUGE bodyrock fans! stumbling across that site a few years ago really did change our life. we found Zuzana! that is who we really feel in love with. bodyrock did teach us so much about how working hard in short amount of time is so worth it. how working out for just about 12 minutes a day can really make a difference if you put the effort into it!! for that knowledge we will be forever grateful.
things have changed so much over at the bodyrock site. overall their mission is still the same but we are not in love with the site anymore. to us it is really changing, maybe a little too over the top sexual-like driven for us. a little is fine but feel sometimes it pushes the limits. and all the behind ‘gossip’ is just getting to be too much. the MAIN reason why we no longer do their workouts is that we never could really get into their workouts once Zuzana left! Zuzana really motivates us, and to us that is what is important.
so that is why we followed Zuzana and just do her workouts. along with the Tone it Up girls workouts and Physique 57, we really enjoy the girls behind these workouts as well. and we get a lot of our fitness inspiration from our FitFluential family.
so hopefully that answered all your questions on no more bodyrock for us. yes of course our workouts are still going to be majority HIIT style workouts because that is just what we love to do. but we will not be doing the workouts from bodyrock anymore. things could change, but that is where we stand as of now.
if you still enjoy bodyrock that is fine, keep doing it. we are not saying do not do it anymore. we just wanted to clear the air on where we stand with it all. hope that makes sense.
Twins Question: do you find there to be a change on the bodyrock tv site? do you find there to be a lot of gossip even in the whole blogging community? how do you avoid getting all caught up in any kind of gossip or drama? and for our yoga lovers out there how many times a week do you do yoga? do you like classes or at-home dvd’s?
till next time,
