50 seconds is a long time

Last night was a night off from data. So very nice. I worked late for an hour or so and then headed out on a mass grocery run for the month. No J with me so I could take time to squeeze produce and read labels and stock up on good stuff. I got a few tasty cheeses and ingredients for wild rice stuffing for thanksgiving dinner at my dad's on the weekend. After I got home and put it all away and had supper ~9 I found my old CV. I am tweaking it for a new position here where I work and need to submit it by friday-it's exciting and scary all at once. We'll see what happens. I firmly believe that what will be will be, so I'm trying not to worry about it. All I know is I'm pretty damn impressive on paper let me tell you! :D

This morning I was stiff in the tush fromall the lunges in tuesday's spin and sculpt class but I still put myself through one heck of a workout. Wednesday is random new thingy day, so I did the Grab Your Balls workout from Bodyrock TV using an 8Lb medicine ball, and ended off with 20 minutes on the elliptical and some ab work. A solid 453 calories burned...and if I was a bit stiff before, I certainly am definitely stiff now. Despite managing to stab my finger multiple times with a paperclip end resetting my Gymboss interval timer (don't ask...) I must say that having an interval timer certainly adds intensity to my workouts. Doing an exercise full out for a set length of time, without having to count or focus on a clock gives me freedom to push myself...altho I have to say that 50 seconds seems like FOREVER when you're doing burpees!

Must dash - lots to do (what else is new! ).
Later taters!

Core workouts for ladies are the proper routine for strengthening and firming most areas of the body.
