So today was fantastic. It was just what I needed!!! I met with my trainer at 10:00. I arrived at 9:58! I was ON TIME! At weigh in I was nervous and dreading it after such a crazy week this last week. I actually lost 1 lb though! So Yipee. I celebrate any loss big or small!
We headed to our workout spot. Crossfit circuit today. We were going to do 4 rounds of the circuit. A circuit went something like this:
5 pull ups
15 squats or lunges with weights
20ish core moves some w weights
Core was a set of either sit ups/roll
Ups. Leg lifts, or plank ups (which made me want to throw up literally).
Push ups were varied between regular and tricep
Pull ups varied between 3 grips and I use the machine that assists you with your body weight in order to have great form. They are very tough!
Squats were squat touch weight to the floor then push the weight over head.
After 3 rounds Linda said "3 down 2 to go" I said "what?!". We were making such good time I got to get in a fifth round! Wow!
Afterward. I was sweaty and it felt
Good. Our gym was doing free health screenings and had fresh fruit at the pro shop for members today. So Linda had me eat fresh fruit before hitting the elliptical. It was delicious. Nothing like
Fresh fruit when you are hot and exhausted! I did 20 minutes of elliptical. Then I was off to shower and head out to get the day underway with my hubby. I grabbed a low fat chocolate milk for my after.
RIPPED time rolled around and off I went. I have yet to make it to my personal training session and ripped all
In one day until today. And I got in my cardio. RIPPED starts at 5:30. I arrived at 5:27. On time again! Yeah!
Class was NOT easy. We advanced the power segment and OMG!!! I got very fatigued toward the end. The mat had never felt so good like it did when we did our last core set tonight!!!
