I will not throw up...I will not throw up...

Friday, May 11, 2012

Ayyyy yaaayy yyaaa. Last night was BRUTAL. And I mean brutal in capital letters, brutal. It had been a good 2 1/2 hours since I had eaten, but OH MY GOODNESS. Having anything even resembling food in my stomach while doing that was not pleasant. If I thought I might throw up on Sunday during the same workout, last night I really felt that way. Made Sunday look like a walk in the park. In fact, I took a post workout shot of me right in the moment and telling myself that I would NOT get sick....

I think that it was probably that much harder because I had done that cycling earlier in the day and my legs were already tired. Either way....holy crappola. But, I got it done and I was really happy about that. We also got the sons dinosaur diorama finished, cleaned bedrooms (they actually did a really good job) and washed some laundry. We did order pizza for dinner (for shame, mom!!) but I was really good, and I tracked what I planned to eat before it even showed up so that I would stay within calorie range, and ate only that and nothing more. It was good too, so I don't really feel all that bad about it. We got one with mushrooms, black olives and pineapple on it. Was scrumptious.

I was up at 4:00 am this morning (kinda sorta really proud of myself for this) and did Pure Cardio (this is bananas) and then Cardio Abs (more bananas). Thank goodness I only have to do that once every two weeks. I don't think I could handle it much more than that. Maybe once I am conditioned to it though. Because that 20 minute ab workout feels like it could really do some good for my tummy area. I may even do that on my rest days after I recuperate from this week. I am so thankful that tomorrow is a rest is desperately needed.

I hope that everyone has a great Friday!!! I probably won't be on that much this weekend. We have a house full of kids showing up tonight and staying until Sunday, so I will be a busy little bumblebee. Happy Mothers Day to all you Mommas out there!

    Haha, I was coming over here to ask you your opinion of Insanity, since I have had my eye on that program as well as on P90X. So it makes you want to puke? :)

    I have ChaLEAN Extreme but have not tried it yet, right now I am in week 9 of the 20 week Turbo Fire rotation. I had planned to then do the hybrid schedule that mixes Turbo Fire and ChaLEAN Extreme but now I think I need to do P90X2 just because someone told me P90X is too hard for women. :) Can't resist a challenge.

    I gotta say, I am sorta kinda thinking I want to try this "Insanity". If I do, I am blaming you girl! Way to stick with it.

    you are like Rocky, running to the top of the stairs!

    I had a similar mantra in Boot Camp class many times (I will not puke, I will not puke, etc). I never did, but boy did I feel the chunks rising on quite a few occasions. I think the trigger for me was doing a high intensity standing exercise (running, jumping jacks, etc) immediately followed by high intensity floor work (mountain climbers, burpees, etc)

    You're doing a great job! I biked to work today so I bet I have a similar story tonight when I get home. I'm kind of looking forward to the cardio abs, in a masochistic way. ;) Have a great weekend!

    Have fun this weekend - and Happy Mother's Day to you too!!
