Well we did it!!! We completed week 1 of phase two. I'm super proud of us because we actually skipped Monday because we were feeling lazy and didnt want to get back into the routine and also skipped Saturday because my parents wanted to do dinner. So we actually made both up on Sunday! We got up at nine and started our legs and back. It was my first time using the pull up bar. I used to use the bands but it didn't feel like I was working hard when I would do them. Now with the pull up bar its so much harder (even using the chair to assist me.) we had to be at church at 10:30 so we got about 35mins into the workout. It takes us a little longer since we are sharing a pull-up bar. It was so hard working out like that on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. but as Tony would say I was "sweating like hell" which was awesome!
After church I went to Walmart to pick up a heart rate monitor. I recently went onto WebMd and saw an article about working out and what my heart rate should be and if your above it its pretty much wasting your time. So I picked one up and its pretty awesome! Very confusing at first but I got the hang of it. We did kenpo and I forgot how awesome it was!! We had only done it one time since it was our Saturday workout and things always seemed to come up on our Saturday nights after we got off of work. So after our kenpo we finished our legs and back and then had ab ripper x. It was an intense day almost 3hours of working out!
This is the heart rate monitor I got its super awesome! The band goes around my chest and monitors my heart rate the whole workout. Whenever I change zones either being under, in, or above. Then at the end it gives me a summary of how long I was in each zone and how many calories I burned. For about $50 bucks I couldn't ask for more.
