In the books, old school friend and remodel progress
Welp, another month in the books.
There's something kind of satisfying both about looking at the month of exercise under your belt and the blank calendar waiting to be filled. Tonight's probably going to be a Fitness Blender strength workout.
Last night we did a workout with an old friend, Billy Blanks. I've been wanting to do a Tae Bo workout for a week or so and boy was it hard. The night before we did the Total Trainer and when we got up yesterday morning, we were ridiculously sore. I always dread that first cardio workout after a soreness inducing strength session...add painting an armoire on that and I was like the Tin Man rusted in the forest. As we were doing the warm up and a good 15 minutes in, I was a wincing fool. But I also knew it was the best way to loosen things up so I pressed on. I can't say I'm not still sore but you know, them's the breaks. But there's something about breaking out an old workout that's like working out with a friend. He was with us through our first attempt back in 1999 and he's still there waiting on the shelf when we need a little old school workout to shake things up.
Dinner was stuffed flounder over thai lime rice and peas n' carrots.
Sorry for the crappy pic...our lighting at the table is horrible and dinner was late.
Progress was made on the TV armoire yesterday. I got two coats on the outside sides and the top as well as one of the doors done. I also painted both shelves and they're all sanded and some parts are ready for poly but I need to get the bottom of the armoire painted and the inside painted the accent color before I do because I want to poly all at once. I think while the Mr was enjoying the minimalist look, he's ready for the TV armoire to be done so he can test out the new, more compact, surround sound speakers I let him get. The other ones we had were just WAY too big to go with the look I wanted to have when we were done. I'm not going to say when I want it done by so as not to put a day in his head but I want it done just as much as he does.
What are some of your favorite workouts that are considered "old school?"
