9 days to go! Incredible ST today and the hard work is paying off!!

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Post workout smile. Happy to be covered in sweat :)

New July Totals Day 11 -
Miles - 54.28
Push ups - 1,450
Squats - 2,047

Daily totals -
Miles - 2.11 incline intervals holding DB's
Push ups - 400 reps - no knees
Squats - 500 reps

It seems after being stuck in such an endless plateau, my body is really starting to see some real changes from all my ST and clean eating. The inches are coming off and yes, a few pounds as well but I am not really weighing, or focusing on the scale anymore. I am more focused on other goals but I do want to know my weight to get an accurate BF% to see progress.

Today's ST session left me completely exhausted. To be honest, I was struggling the entire time. I almost stopped twice as I had NO energy and I felt so tired. But, I have 9 days to go until we leave for the cruise and motivation won over fatigue. I kept remembering the last 2 times we were in the Mediterranean and how big I was and I always imagined going back when I had lost my weight. I realized that time is NOW! So, I pressed on today and ended up with a killer workout.

Now, about that video I posted on FB and my blog regarding the Medicine ball burpees? I will tell you in ALL honesty......I did TWO. Count them with me! two! That is it. My knees were hurting and I did not want to push it....yes, that is true but I also say that these are HARD! My knee did better with the jump squats holding the MB and pressing it overhead while jumping. So, my new mission is to do these MB burpee things......killer I tell you!

Now for my ST for today....
