Cruise Crunch Challenge – Day 4

Work Meeting

I got up this morning and felt a little bit better than I did yesterday. Not a whole herd of elephants in my chest today.

Just like two having a vigorous tango in my lungs. That gave me a bunch of coughing and a slow start to the day.

No morning workout, just the HIIT recumbent bike session I’ve discussed previously and then it was off to start the day.

Today was full of work meetings. What does that mean?

It means a heck of a lot of sitting and zoning. Discussing with the Sloth in my head what I would put on a play list on my MP3 player for the gym on the cruise.

Sloth: For the record I said playlist for the pool side.


Workout Playlists

Fair warning if you don’t like explicit language… you should steer clear of my playlists cause… yeah… I don’t mind foul filth… or filthy foulness.

Anyway, this is what the Sloth and I decided would be a great hour or two of music to get us going.

Also, you should probably note that my taste in music is all over the place.

This is my playlist… you go make your own and use it!

Stretch Music, Yoga, and even Pilates music.

It’s slow and the music is very lyrical.

  • IDFC- Black Bear
  • I miss the old you – Black Bear
  • Do Re Mi – Black Bear
  • Psycho – Post Malone

  • El Manana- Gorillaz
  • Castle -Halsey
  • I fall apart – Post Malone

Let’s move onto Cardio. This is a regular cardio playlist not a HIIT playlist… that’s coming next.

  • Let’s Go – Lil Jon, Trick Daddy.. bunch of people
  • Salt Shaker – Ying Yang Twins, Lil Jon
  • Pray for me – The weeknd, Kendrick Lamar

That’s as far as we got. We’ll think about what we want to download for HIIT training, weights and cool downs later.


Today’s Workout

Now what did I do for a workout when I got home? I went to Walmart for SD cards, went to clean my sister’s house and then I did two workouts.

First was crunches on the ball. Three sets of twenty crunches on the yoga ball.

It’s almost time for me to call it a night. I have to be at work by 6 am tomorrow. I’m not a fan of those days, mainly because I don’t usually get off work any earlier than normal. I most likely won’t have time to get a work out done in the morning. I’m kind of going to try and sleep in because the kid isn’t going to school. On the other hand, the day goes better if I eat before work. Who knows? It’s going to be interesting to see how the day plays out!

Steps for the day: 20,797.

I’ll see you guys tomorrow.  Until then, be kind to yourself and each other.
