Been On A Workout Break

And still technically am. If you read or follow my other blog then you know why and on top of that I am also fighting off a nasty cold that my son brought home from school that i just cant seem to shake. We do have plans on picking up with week 6 when we start back but that probably will not be till November 6th which although not far away still seems like its forever away. 

Im really not looking forward to working out as it starts to get cold, yes the gym has heat but since its only a couple blocks from the house we walk there and walking in the cold with two little kids is not fun. I would be more then willing to get up early and go by myself in the morning that way the kids are still in bed and then Tim can go in the evening that way the kids dont have to leave the house but I just cant seem to get out of bed early when its cold. 

Anyway just thought I would check in and let those that are actively following know that I didnt forget to post or forget about the workout, just life happens and sometimes you have to walk away but we are not giving up.

Week 5 ~ TapouT XT

Day 29 ~ September 17 ~ Plyo XT
                September 24
~ *sigh* i get going good and get knocked right back on my ass :(  I may be out for the count this time. My right knee feels like its practically gone now. I knew months ago something was wrong but couldnt and still cant afford more unpaid medical bills, well looks like i dont have a choice now. It doesnt hurt during daily life but once I start working out and putting weight/pressure on it it kills me and feels like there is nothing there holding it and then when i sit it looks like its filled with fluid or something so im just not sure. I got half way through week 5 day 1 Plyo XT before we stopped. My fiance is going to see if he can get me into our local clinic after our son goes to school. Im hoping its just fluid build up and nothing major that may requires surgery or anything.
~ Ok so we restarted week 5 today! Im still not 100% over my cold but Ive got my energy back which is good. I do know now not to take daytime meds right before working out, major hyper boost lol anyway after a week of not working out it felt good even if I had to still take it easy and not fully do the whole thing. Now im looking forward to tomorrow.

Day 30 ~ September 18 ~ Ripped Conditioning + Ultimate Abs
                September 25
~ 30 Day weigh-in ~

Rather sucks, Dante got pretty sick maybe 10 minutes into the workout and we had to stop. Only crappy part is I think I feel like Im getting it too and I will probably get it pretty bad.We did weigh ourselves and do photos but no measurements.
~ Wow nice workout! Im able to keep pace and do the full workout but with a few extra breaks due to still having phlegm in my throat from my cold. But Im more looking forward to tomorrow then anything!

~ Still by far my favorite workout! But man did I not realize just how sore the back of my arms were from Ripped Conditioning lol I really cant wait to be able to buy some weighted gloves and really make my arms work, I also want to buy a couple sets of resistance bands and leg bands for Tim and I but that may not happen till next year since I have Halloween costumes to buy and then Christmas and bday gifts to try and buy.
