Core Fusion + Kick=Rockin’ duo

Well, today officially kicks off (no pun intended!) my self-imposed Core Fusion challenge. And because I was craving a cardio burn after yesterday’s rest day, I chose to pair it with a Kick workout at home first.

Hello match made in heaven, much

It was an awesome duo! As my post title suggests, it rocked my socks off!

Couple things I noticed right off the bat:

  • I was much more aware of my core during Kick.
  • My kicks and jabs were stronger and more grounded because my core was held firm.
  • My ab curl during Core Fusion: Body Sculpt? Well it sure wasn’t perfect but it was much-improved!

And this just one day into the official start of my Core Fusion challenge – but a couple of weeks after I first (re)introduced Core Fusion back into my workout regime after far too much time spent away from it.

I’m totally impressed already with the improvements I’m seeing and cannot even imagine what the rest of this week will bring.

I may have a problem though – where will I fit all this Core Fusion action once STS starts again and I can run again?? A problem for another day I suppose (and a good one, at that!).

In other Core Fusion news – I had a total fitness geek-out moment today when Fred DeVito, co-creator of Core Fusion and founding member of Exhale Spa – not only started following me on twitter (before I followed him, no less) but he tweeted out to me, giving a shout-out to my blog and my Core Fusion Challenge! For your viewing pleasure:

YES. That was his last tweet and it was to ME! AND after that, we DM’d back and forth a few times where I soon learned that he’d be heading to the Boston Exhale Spa in December to teach a few classes. He invited me to join, shall I call that a personal invite or what?? Of course, I’m definitely SO there!!

Anyway, my geeky fitness gal story ‘o the day. Hope you enjoyed it. And for the record, let’s call that my #TheLittleThings of the day, too. A two for one, what could be better, right? And yes, I’m on a total endorphin high since I just finished working out and feel like I’m typing this post a mile a minute. Don’t mind me. 😉

In other news, I had a chance to see my sister and my super-duper-most-adorable-niece-on-the-planet on Sunday and LOVED every minute of it. I don’t think it fully hit me just how much I missed her until I saw her, got to snuggle with her, cheek-to-cheek and kiss her soft little head.

I even admitted to my dad, after seeing Scott with Isabel in the other room, rocking her to sleep (he’s like the “baby whisperer” I swear) that “I was so screwed” now that Isabel has both Scott and I smitten beyond belief. We were both on the no-kids-just-cats bandwagon forever…and well, now, we’re on the “welllll…maybeeee….someday” bandwagon. Dammit! 😉
