So far I have had a great start with this challenge. I feel umm...sore but in a good way and hopefully my efforts with pay off at the end of the challenge. Initially I wasn't going to do a workout schedule, but I think it helps me to plan everything ahead of time. It eliminates the chances of me scrambling to find something to do to at the last minute. I also like to schedule in my rest days to since they are something to look forward to. This week I'm trying something new by doing a Yoga or Pilates workout on my rest days. I've done the Denise Austin Power Yoga Workout before and it gives the body a GREAT stretch.

Day 1 & 2 Recap
It has been forever since I did a Hip Hop Abs workout. At first I wasn't really into it so I decided to put on some Beyonce (it helps to drown out the Shaun T) and I ended up having a pretty good workout. My stomach is still a bit sore (not in a bad way though since I can tell it was from working out my core). I do plan on working out some more to Hip Hop Abs since it is fun compared to a lot of the workouts that I have tried in the past.
Today I did the Tae Bo Cardio Workout. I will admit it- I like Tae Bo. It always gives me a great workout and it the intensity is always there. I hate wasting my time exercising to 30 or 40 video where I don't feel any impact (I judge my workouts by how hard my heart pumps and how much I sweat) even though I know I worked hard. For the most part, Tae Bo never disappoints me. I'm not sure if it was because it's been a while since I did this video or what, but it definitely challenged me today. Looking forward to my rest day tomorrow.
