CORE DE FORCE: Week 1- DONE! Start of Week 2

Check out how many calories I burned doing CORE DE FORCE HERE!

I successfully finished Week 1 of CORE DE FORCE! Yeah!!! Wow, what a great workout. I know you’re all curious about what results I had in the first week, right?

Well I’m super excited to let y’all know I lost 4 pounds during my first week. It seems crazy to me, but not so much when I consider that I really controlled my eating last week. I am also starting to see some definition in my obliques.

The workouts were challenging but fun. One thing that I really enjoy about this program is that I haven’t gotten bored. I looked over the schedule and it looks like I never will get bored. There are so many different workouts and they are so nicely spaced apart. You don’t do the same ones over and over again like in many other workout programs.

I also like that Joel and Jericho are actually doing the moves with you almost the whole time. One may walk over to another person for a minute to show you their form or something, but they quickly jump back in. And they alternate showing you the next move. So if Jericho showed you the last move, Joel will show you the next. At least that’s how it’s been up til now. I really like that. And I also wonder… how can they manage to talk while doing some of those exercises? They are in such good shape, I know that’s the answer. But I actually talked out loud today while I was doing some leg check planky type move (I’ll never remember what it’s actually called) and I really just got out a few grunts. I sounded ridiculous.

Whew. Okay so today was Day 1 of my second week of CORE DE FORCE which included TWO workouts. Today was MMA Shred and Core Kinetics. I had done MMA Shred before but not Core Kinetics. It really felt like it was ripping up my core. I’m super excited to do that one again.

My goal for this week is to really improve my nutrition. I was much better last week than usual, but want to be even better this week.

Hope you’re all having a great week!

Core de Force: Day 2

Today was Day 2 of Core de Force for me. The name of the workout is called Dynamic Strength and it’s 47 minutes long. There was a warmup, then 12 three minute rounds, and then a cool down. Each round had three moves, each lasting a minute. It was mostly pushups (so many different pushups!), kicks, planks, balancing, and situps. Some of the moves were super challenging and I did end up following the modifier for a few of them.

I was dripping with sweat by the end of this killer workout, and my Fitbit claimed I burned 345 calories. I really enjoyed this workout because it was just so different from everything else I have done before.

Today was kind of a rough day at home with my kiddos. Sometimes homeschooling and just being home with the kids all day is exhausting. And I mean we are not literally HOME all day. We DO go out and see people and places. Just sometimes the fighting and the constant messes drive me nuts. I’m so happy to have Beachbody On Demand so that I can just stream the workouts (any workout!) wherever and whenever. I’ve been using naptime as my workout time. I put the little one down for a nap and let the big kids watch a movie or show in my room while I workout downstairs. I totally need that little bit of “me” time.

My meal prep lately has been kinda boring and I’m quite okay with that. It makes it super easy for me. Lately I’ve been doing quinoa, peas, and fish. Today I had some yummy salmon cooked with garlic and rosemary. So delicious!

How was your workout today?
