Day 10 – September 18

I didn’t get to the gym till about 7:30pm.  But its all good.  I’m glad it was my last day on my own for a few days.  I’m definitely needing some motivation right about now.   Tonight I did a total of 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes of toning/abs.  I did a mixture of pulley exercises and band exercises as well as some floor work with abs.  I pushed myself definitely, and came up with a new band move (well new for me anyway).

I stood with both feet on the band, shoulder width apart.  Then I grabbed both ends of the band with the opposite hand so it criss-crossed.  Then as I lifted my left leg, I pulled back my right hand.  This squeezed my right deltoid as well as increased the resistance on my leg.  Then I switched and did the other side.  I did 10 reps total – 5 each side.  This was the last exercise for the bands.  So I was pretty much done way before I attempted this.  But I think next time I do a band workout I will do this one first so I can get in a few complete sets.

Day 9 – September 17

Today was definitely a lazy day.  I didn’t get to the gym till 10ish in the evening.  Main thing – I got there right??  So I came prepared!  I definitely  had my game face on.  I warmed up on the treadmill for 10 minutes at different speeds and inclines.  Then I stretched out my muscles and did some pilates band/rubber band/latex band (whatever you wanna call it) training.

I LOVE THIS BAND.  I have quite a few from the Stephenie Huckabee DVD’s I purchased from QVC.  By the way, she is amazing!!  With the band I completed the following: chest press; shoulder press; tricep dips,bicep curls, squats, leg abductions and abs.

After the toning workout I finished off the workout with 20 minutes on the elliptical.

Total workout was about 60 minutes!
