I realized that all of the holiday parties that would happen during the challenge–not to mention celebrating on Christmas and NYE themselves, right afterward– made it a bit less-than-smart to detox, only to turn right around and retox a few days later. Instead, I’ll be doing a detox to start off 2017 for a couple days, then I’ll get real about eating properly.
In the meantime, I’m just trying to not eat like a complete idiot. Though, my office Christmas party was last night. There were tacos. There were cupcakes. There was hooch. There was karaoke. I indulged in all.
Which brings me to the third lie, wherein I actually didn’t get a workout in yesterday, on Day 3. I’d planned to do it in the morning, before work. But, I just didn’t have enough time, because I had to do a full beat on my face for two Facebook Live shows that I host on Thursdays. Then, with the party after work (there was no going home in between, as the party was at our office), the dog and I got home pretty frickin late, and slightly turnt. Especially the dog.
So, now I have to do a makeup workout, which isn’t a huge deal. After all, in my previous Fitmas challenges, the feat has always been to do 12 workouts in 12 days. I did always stipulate that if you want/need a rest day, it simply meant making up for that day’s wod with a double on some other day.
Still feels like I copped out, though. Mainly because I didn’t say that explicitly for this year’s challenge. Oh wells.
In any event, I got an a.m. workout in today, I’ll do an evening workout tonight and order will be restored. My day 2 workout was the one you see in the video above, from Marcus Martinez. I did modify it a bit by cutting it to 4 rounds instead of 5, for my currently-unfit-ass. I’ve done this wod before, so I knew modification was going to be necessary.
Today, I did this circuit that I made up on my own:
- 20 swings
- 5/5 clean + front squat
- 8/8 rows
- 20 Russian Twists
- rest 60 sec
Pretty much the moment I picked up the kettlebell, the dog bolted, and hid out in the bedroom until I let her know it was over. This is perfect! As long as she stays freaked out by my workouts, I won’t have to worry about her safety.
Tonight, I’ll (finally) do an all bodyweight circuit, from MBodyPro, since I have that membership I bought years ago, and I haven’t used those workouts in forever.
Need food now. Gotta go!
