Jillian Michaels and Form Rollers

I know it has been awhile.  Time is always escaping me.  We had an eventful week!  I was suppose to have my observation, but it had to be rescheduled so it was an intense Monday and Wednesday.  Then Jamie’s birthday and Halloween I can’t believe so many events were in one week.  I tried hard to make it to the gym last week.

Here is what I accomplished.  

Sunday-Barbell 

Wednesday-Cycling

Friday-Hot Yoga

Saturday-An oldie but a goody- Jillian Michaels-Workout 9-Body Revolution

I would have liked to squeeze in one more workout, but it didn’t happen.  This week I tutor until 7:00 on Monday and Thursday. it will make for a complicated schedule. 

This post is going to be a little random so stick with me. 

1) Form rollers-Who uses one and would you recommend one for me?  I have extremely tight calves and I have been massaging them out after workouts.  I just started using a pool noddle of Breslins and it feels really good.  Do you think its worth investing in one?

3) I tried to be a little more organized this month with meal planning.  My friend Cindy has been helping me pre-plan some freezer meals and I have to say I think I should do it more often.  My thing is I hate buying a ton of ingredients, spending time preparing and cooking when I can just go and pick up Subway.  I haven’t tried the meals yet, but I think its more convenient to have them prepared and ready.  I’ll let you know at the end of the month if I liked having them. 

4) Starbucks Coffee is way better then Dunkin Donuts coffee.  I had a iced white chocolate mocha on Friday and it was super delicious. I have been drinking Dunkin because its cheaper, but nothing beats a good Starbucks!

5) I was inspired to dig back out my Jillian Michaels DVDs after watching the Biggest Loser.  I popped in one of her Body Revolution discs and it kicked my butt.  I was sweating and felt accomplished after 30 minutes.  I typically go to a class at the gym for an hour.  I may have to add those discs in on the nights I tutor.

6) I’ve been trying to drink some more water.  My friend Coryn suggested I take gulps of water vs. little sips and it has really helped.  I’m able to finished more water then I typically do in a day.  Any other suggestions?

  1. I totally need to drink more water too! I always bring a big bottle of water to work, and most days I still have most of it left at the end of the day. I generally just don’t get very thirsty and when I do drink a lot of water, I have to pee constantly (which is super annoying). I know I SHOULD drink more water though, so I need to make more of an effort.
