Buzz Goes My Metabolism

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

My body is still buzzing from yesterday's lift session!

I am scorching some mad calories... I'm sore, but still functioning. I FULLY exhausted myself with an hour of lifting and bodyweight and core exercises... then I ran a 5K. I have no idea how I did it but I'm just glad I put myself into a zone and JUST DID. Utilized some momentum. It was only guys at the gym in the weights room and they were thumbs-upping me from the weight room - HA! As if to say, I'm crazy... or I'm crazy! I think they were mildly jealous. I will have to tell them to work harder next time :)

I pulled off 100 chin-ups too! YAY! Working on my long-term goal to be able to jump up onto the bar and do two 100% unassisted. Not there yet, but I put the machine at 60 and 70 lb and did 100... I was happy with that. Can't wait to see that number go down, meaning I'm getting less help from the machine! Soon enough!!!

Hope all my spark friends are having a FIT day!

    I really want to achieve my chin-up goal of one. That will be one more than I have ever (including when I was a teenie-tiny rake of a child) done. I figure when I find a place to test my newfound strength, I might be there or nearly there now!

*inspired to get a guest pass to my sis' gym to giver a go!*

  Totally fabulous. If we could just hold onto that feeling of accomplishment all the time because then we would practically run to get our workouts in. Congrats on a great session.
