February – Week 1
This month I’m going to do my best to follow Cassey Ho’s February 2016 calendar. It won’t be perfect, of course, because her calendars are super hard, but I’m going to try to do as many of the listed daily videos as I can.
I’m also doing three yoga/pilates challenges – #FabYouUp, Power Girl Challenge, #YogalatesLove. Only one of them lasts the whole month. The other 2 end around Valentine’s Day.
Unless otherwise specified, the needed equipment is just an internet connection for Youtube or the Blogilates app.
2/1/16 Strong Arms:
- Intense Ab Burn // PIIT – 7 min
- 4 Min to a Hot body WO – 4 min
- Exercises for Better Posture – 8 min
- 5 Minute Toned Arms – 5 min
Insert many expletives. My ARMS!!! Not really the arms though as the shoulders. More expletives. My shoulders have never been very strong and now they’re even weaker. I actually missed the last arm workout because my son had an accident right before bed so I had to stop and take care of him. By the time he was feeling better, I had run out of time to do the last video.
2/2/16 Cardio Core:
The Sleek Tank Top Arms was the missed video from the day before. Dang! My poor shoulders! Couldn’t bring myself to do the other three videos listed for the day. Although it was technically only two because I wasn’t subscribed to the actual monthly calendar until later so I didn’t have access to that 3rd video. Even just those three videos kicked my butt though. My shoulders were screaming for mercy!
2/3/16 Luscious Legs:
- Fat Burning Dance WO – 2 rounds – 7 min
- Quick Leg & Butt Sculptor – 3:30 min
- Glutes & Thighs Trimdown – 9 min
- 8 Min Bikini Thighs WO – 8 min
- 30 Day Thigh Slimming Challenge – 8:30 min
Broke this into 2 bouts. 2 leg videos in the morning and then the other 3 videos in the afternoon. Hips needed the break as they wanted to DIE. It never ceases to amaze me how much muscle I’ve lost.
2/4/16 HIIT Me Up!:
- Booty Pop // PIIT – 2 rounds – 14 min
- Fun Indoor Cardio Workout – 6 min
- Snowbunny Blast – 7 min
- FAT BURNING Cardio! – 7 min
I threw up a bit in my mouth during that last one. Worked myself sooooo hard. I could barely even do the last one when it got on the floor. My shoulders feel like they want to fall off. Cassey REALLY works the shoulders in her videos!
2/5/16 Relax + Refresh:
Missed. At least this was a rest day so I didn’t really miss much, just some really useful stretching videos. Oh well. Rest is rest and it was much needed.
2/6/16 Total Body Torture:
Missed. Again. At least I did my February challenges.
Those last two days were so difficult! Oh wait. I didn’t do anything. Pfft. My body was super sore and so tired before. Since I feel tons better today (Sunday, though I’m still a bit tired), I think my body needed the rest. I really kicked my workouts up a notch this last week and I wasn’t used to the intensity, especially with my shoulders.
