Week 1 DONE!

Feeling good about crushing all the workouts this week! Plus 2 tough dragon boat practices, lots of dog walks, some running around with the kids, and dancing!

Ready to lock in the diet tomorrow. Had a few too many indulgences this week, including at last nights AmCham Ball. Had lots of fun dancing until midnight to a great band with many friends. Sore feet after wearing heels all night...don't do that often anymore!

Got a little more air on my 2nd attempt at Hang Times - landing softly-ish on the couch. That hack seems to be working well for me. Knees hanging in there so far!

Additional workout notes from this week:
Day 3 - Lunge Jump Twist – I did this as an alternating lunge with the twist – no jumping.
Day 6 - Heel to Butt Jump – subbed with reverse lunge to step up onto a chair (from Sculpt) – not quite the same but fairly full body and tough on the legs. I like this exercise as a sub for tough jumping ones - it's hard and works up a good sweat but stays low impact.

What a gorgeous, healthy couple, and dancing all night would be a breeze for you for sure.

Thanks for the reminder about that sculpt option. Useful to add to the list.

    Hi Elissa! You are an inspiration. And have poignant blogs! Can you screenshot how the reverse lunge is done. I can't do Heel to Butt Jump because of a bum knee and would love to sub the reverse lunge.

            @June - Post edited to include the Lunge to High Step photos. I too have a bum knee. Just be aware of whether you're maintaining control on the step down so that you're landing softly. If not then you could lunge to high knee instead of lunge to high step.
            @Martin - Thanks! You clean up pretty well yourself!

              You look fabulous!
              Thanks for the subs - I tried the couch sub for HT and it helped with my form.

                Nice sub! Later on you could hold a couple of dumbbells to make it harder. Both you and Shafi are looking the part there - nice photo!

                  Looking good! And don’t discount the dancing-until-midnight alt cardio.
                  DHT in heels! DO IT DO IT!

                    Excellent sub! I can do that with a broomstick to start!

                            Enjoy Chisel! I went in nervous but I reckon it is my fav program!

                              Look at those Dreamgirls! And thanks for the all the sub ideas. This is definitely a high impact program!

                                Shafi is looking quite dapper and you look radiant! Sounds like the lower impact subs are working and that will be of great help to many current and future Chizzlers.

                                  Beautiful photo. Dancing, hike, dragon boat and chisel? Wow that’s a lot. Will try the Lunge to highstep since heel to butt jump prob still a no no with my sensitive back.
