Blasting Through!

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Week 3 is done for me! I'm SO glad I'm still on board... But then again, I knew I be because I know when I really really want something.... really bad, I know exactly how to put my mind to it. Let's not be too hasty - Week 4 is now upon us, lol!

This is Week 3 Day 5 BodyRock workout -

So mine looked like this. 600 reps.

-100 High Knee Skips
-50 Left Lunge Back & Kick (first 25 w/ 14kg, second 25 w/ 10kg)
-50 Right Lunge Back & Kick (First 25 w/ 14kg, second 25 w/ 10kg)
-100 High Knee Skips
-100 Squats (first 50 w/ 14kg, second 50 with 10kg)
-100 High Knee Squats
-25 Straight Abs
-25 V Abs Left
-25 V Abs Right
-25 Bicycle Abs

My time was 20:54.

The abs were hard to keep going at, but it's a good feeling... I don't find them easy. None of it was easy, actually. And my time challenge scores are always higher than the majority.

Soooo... I was a little bit unsure about how things were going... Since I went to Body Attack last Thursday, it put me a day behind with BodyRock because I was too tired after the (killer) class. Then on Saturday, I rested instead of doing a BodyRock rep challenge. I always need that little bit more motivated to do one of Sean's workouts. Always riddled with reps and buckets of sweat, lol. I'm happy afterwards, obviously. Anywho's I pushed it to Sunday morning (Week 3 Day 4) and that was fine and dandy. Monday I went to Zumba and it was 8pm by the time I got home, and I was super tired, so listened to the body and went to bed.

So I did Day 5 of Week 3 tonight after work. Straight into it and it's finished before you know it. That's the thing with BodyRock... Just press the timer already...hah, it's a scary moment before you push for the beep!

Tomorrow (Wednesday) shall not be a rest day, but the beginning of Week 4. Thursday I am booked in for another session of Body Attack, so it will just mean I am finishing February's challenge a day or two later than planned... BUT, I am finishing, which is the important thing... AND, it's not like I'm going to be later because of rest days or can't-be-bothered days. I'm late due to being tired because of other exercise. Good times! :)

Eating has been better. Not perfect, but better! The body is feeling good, and ... My arms/shoulder area is definitely feeling tighter and more toned. I should probably take some progress pictures...But maybe at the end of March, just before I go to Mexico and hopefully I'll be in the best shape... I've ever been!

Happy Tuesday!

    Way to go! :) My times for the rep challenges are usually longer than most too. I lightened my weights and that has helped a bit, but I like to think we are doing the moves with excellent form and range of motion and that is why it takes us longer. :)

    Save some space in your suitcase for me when you go to Mexico ;)
