So seriously…. where’d my team go? Today there were only three of us in attendance. Did they get shy about the weigh in? We believe one became extremely I’ll and we know she loves the gym so hopefully that’s all it was, but the other two are MIA.
It was a good day for me today. I lost and I lost BIG compared to last week. For those following, I gained 4 pounds last week. I was PISSED. My nutritionist helped me understand that it was hopefully the result of a massive schedule change. Jackson told me to focus on two week results, not one week. I put the blinders on for the rest of the week and POOF! Big time loss!
If you count the four pounds I gained last week… I lost 10 pounds this week. Taking those out of the mix, I lost 6 per the starting weight of the competition.
BOOM! That’s how it’s done!
Six pounds! I feel incredible. If there was something to motivate me even more than usual, I busted my ass in the gym today. I want another result like that!
Since there was only three of us today, the pressure was on! We started on the stairwell where we did flights of stairs and laps on the track.
Round 1 – 4 flights (up and down) of stairs and then one jogging lap on the track.
Round 2 – 3 flights of stairs and one jogging lap on the track.
Round 3 – 2 flights of stairs and one jogging lap on the track.
Round 4 – 1 flight of stairs and one jogging lap on the track.
We finished with another lap on the track as a cool down and then … off to kettle bells.
One lap around the track with timed intervals. We’d do lunges with the kettle bells. Stop and do a timed push ups with the kettle bells. Then more lunges. Then bicep curls. Then lunges… and you get the picture. All the way around the track. I never realized just how long the track was!
From here we went back downstairs to the weight machines and did a one-round circuit on the leg press, leg extension and leg curl. Then it was off to the TRX bands for some pull ups and bicep curls before concluding the workout with a brief cardio stint for 10 minutes on the arc trainers.
Whew! I made it! I’m motivated. I feel incredible after the weight loss. I can’t go back to the gym after work because my husbands working overtime so I think I’ll let my kid play trainer again tonight and give me another workout. It’s fun spending time with my daughter and getting a workout. She really likes helping mom so it’s a win-win!
