Yikes I haven't updated this in a little while. I did do some workouts but the last couple days I took off so a biopsy scar on my back could heal without irritation. My family and I went hiking on saturday at Mont St Sauveur which was a blast; we hiked all the way to the top and back down which took us about an hour to an hour and a half. The colors were gorgeous and it was great to get out hiking again. It may sound insane but one of my favorite workouts is running hills; I find it easier to run up a hill rather than slowly trek up. I also had a lot of fun on the steeper slopes coming down the mountain because I would just let myself run straight down the steepest sections rather than tiptoe down and hurt my toes.
Today I decided to get back into workout routines so I did the Jillian Michaels kickbox fastfix level 3 which focused on abs. I liked the ab sections but the actual kickboxing I found harder to follow. The combinations were much longer and more complicated than in level 1 and I had some trouble remembering each of the exercises in the combination. It was a good workout though, I was exhausted by the end of it even though it's only 20 minutes long. I haven't tried level 2 yet but I'm assuming it's a way to introduce you to the longer combinations.
If any of you get the chance to go for a hike and see the fall colors, I definitely recommend it. I do recommend the kickbox fastfix dvd however do the levels in order to work your way up to the more complicated combinations.
