Day 23 Fitness Ridge

Monday last Monday took place today.  This week has me thinking about going home a lot more than the weeks prior.  With every class I take I think wow, this is my last Pilates class, this is my last time on the Anasazi Hike.  I am trying to step it up a little more this week since it's my last chance to up my results.  Today I took the 6:00am class with Anna Marie, then my hike.  When we returned I took the Mountain class instead of pool, it is a better cardio burn.  I did mountain on the treadmill and went to level 15, the highest level possible.

Lunch was sunchoke soup and yummy yummy tilapia tacos.  I added a little salsa and cilantro to the top of them and I was in heaven.  After lunch  I went to my room for a little bit, closing my eyes.  I took about a half an hour nap then I got up and headed to the gym.  I did about 15 mins of cardio on the elliptical before the circuit training class.  I was really tired when we were finished with that class.  But with only 15 minutes to recover I was quickly in Step and Pump with John Yohman.  I don't know if he was trying to kick my butt, or everyones butt, all I can say is that was the hardest Step and Pump class I have attended here.  Whew!

I was so exhausted, it took all my energy just to get my bathing suit on and head to the pool.  I didn't workout in the pool as hard as usual but I was still burning calories.  4:30pm class always allows for a nice long shower before dinner.  Nothing feels better than getting a shower and dressing in my sweats for dinner.

Dinner was amazing tonight, we had wasabi mashed potatoes with chicken and asparagus with a pineapple sorbet for dessert.  Not only did the food look beautifully presented, it was out and out delicious!  Having a month of meals cooked for me, I worry about having to cook again at home. I am feeling a little spoiled, I haven't even washed a dirty dish in weeks!  Well there must be some calories burned cooking and doing my dishes, so I guess I will get through it!  (he-he)

Everyday isn't going to offer you a ton of energy, so on the days you feel tired do what you can to exercise.  Even if it's only for a little bit of time.  Not only will you be good to your body, you will be good to your mind.

My legs are hurting from the rapid decent from the mountain yesterday and I was going to rest them - but after reading your post, I'm going to get my butt onto my total gym and do what I can before calling it a night. Hugs sista~
