Tony Horton, Day 4
Saturday, June 04, 2011
Yeah, yeah. I did my videos. I'll get back to that. First, I'd like to discuss the 517 FITNESS MINUTES I'VE LOGGED SINCE SUNDAY!!!! And its just now 8:30pm, so you know I'll have to get 23 more minutes in for a round 9 hours. lol I guess being obsessive comes in handy from time to time. Now if it would just extend over to housework. :P
Okay, now the workout. I did the cardio before work this morning, then when I got home from work, they were watching Transformers, so I made me a salad and a pizza. If you have a Dillon's or Kroger's near you, you should try the Private Selection Fire Roasted Veggie pizza. Its got red and green pepper, garlic, onion and zucchini on it, and 145 grams, or about 1/3, is only 240 calories. The sodium isn't even too terribly bad. 540 mg. So if you're careful the rest of the day, swelling shouldn't happen. :P I don't normally try the store brand when it comes to stuff like that, but I'm glad I did. It was really yummy.
So after work, I sat Austin down at my computer with Angry Birds so I could work out. lol Whikle he was knocking monkeys off boxes and out of trees and I was doing my Ab and Yoga videos.
After my workout videos, I put in Wii Fit. I did a couple strength exercises first, just to loosen up. Then I went to Free Run. I set it for 10 minutes and planned on doing a nice, relaxed pace. But nooooo! I can't stand to see those other Miis passing me, so I really went for it. My legs were on fire, but I managed to cross the 1 mile mark right at 7 minutes. And I couldn't slack off, because those dang Miis just kept coming! So I ran. And ran! I ended up with just over 1.4 miles. It took about 3 minutes for my heartrate to drop back down, which tells me I'm WAY more fit than I was a few months ago. If I'd have jogged for 10 minutes straight 3 months ago, it would have taken just about as long for my heart to stop racing! Heck, who am I kidding? 3 months ago, I wouldn't have LASTED 10 minutes without stopping and walking....slowly. :P
Now I'm just waiting for Bridget to answer my text so we can do the step. I don't think I should do it again today because my calves are still really knotted up from the last 2 days of doing it, but I can just go slower and take it easy.
I'll update my status when I hit 540 minutes tonight! I hope everyone else pushed it today and got their minutes in! You'll love yourself for it!
