Today has been a crazy fun day!! First I went to Spinn with a teacher I've never seen before. She was really big on resistance and kicked my butt!!! After class I came home and loaded up the family, we headed out to town and I was able to finally get a BOSU ball!!! YAY!! I was surprised to see a HIGH QUALITY Bosu ball at Target. I knew it was going to be expensive and actually the $99.99 price tag was cheaper than what I've seen. I threw it on the cart (while my husband rolled his eyes and added out loud all the money HE has spent on exercise stuff in the last 2 weeks!) and since I was in the fitness aisle and I desperately need bigger weights, I grabbed a couple of 10 lb hand weights that were on sale.. err... sort of.. it was like $1.50 off each one so I saved $3!! GO ME!! ;o)
Anyway.. we get to the check out stand and it rings up and the lady hands us a $20 gift card. She then informs us that the BOSU ball has some special on it where you get a $20 gift card for purchasing it. UMM AWESOME!! So yeah.. it made me feel a little better about spending so much money on it... $20 less sounds much better! I've already established that it is going to completely change Ab ripper X for me. I can actually do the things without the pain in the ass if you know what I mean! ;o)
I also did Kenpo X for the first time today. I just want to say... I kind of hated it. I just am not very coordinated and all the punch combos were like watching me have a seizure... plus.. the cardio is just not my kind of cardio. It was a challenge for me to try to get my heart rate in the "ZONE" when I was having to work so hard to figure out what the hell my arms were supposed to be doing. I'm sure a couple more times and I will love it, but today.. I was frustrated mostly.
Overall.. I give this day a B+!

Don't worry about your 1st Kenpo day. You will catch on. It takes a few more times. Practice in the mirror, "jab, hook, uppercut" and the other punches. Get used to it at your pace, then you'll be ready for Tony ;)

I also struggle with the combos! In the cardio video he goes straight into the 4 punch combo with no warning! Can you imagine when we do Kempo with 14 teenage girls at once! It makes me giggle every time I think about it. Congrats on the Bosu and convincing darin to let you get it!

Love your fun day!
As for the Kenpo. You can a move, REWIND, do the move, REWIND,...and you'll get it. Trust me, this workout is AWESOME when you get the hang of it. It goes by soooo fast, and you drip with sweat. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! I bet you will too!
