Okay so I know I am a few days late but you will understand why in a few!
Last week David worked so much overtime and my kids were just not sleeping. Of course I don’t sleep well when David not home anyway so by Friday I just wanted to crash. I was napping on the couch and it was so snowy out, as in whiteout! I didn’t want to go to bootcamp. I knew I needed to but it would have been so much easier to just stay under my blanket. After a Get your ass down here post from my trainer I motivated myself up and out the door.. I know I want to undo my 1 pound gain.
I walked in and saw everything we had to do on the board:
1) 50 kettlebell swings – heaviest you have ever gone
2) 25 Pushup from the toes
3) 30 burpies without stopping
4) 2 minute plank without stopping
5) 20 Ringrows without stopping
6) 20 TRX bicep curls
7) 20 TRX Tricep curls
8) 20 Dead lifts with the Beast – 100 pound KB
I looked at him and told him he was nuts. this was like a new years resolution, not my Jan 20th resolution. I had never done ANY pushups from my toes, I can not do more then 8 burpies without stopping, the longest plank I had ever done was 1minute and on Monday I lifted only once the 70 pound KB. REALLY on a friday that I am dragging my ass you want me to do this.
wait there was more! We were in teams…So if anyone in your team stopped doing #3, #4, #5 the whole team had to start over…No Pressure.
25 minutes later we were done. I did it. Okay so I was last to finish my burpies and I wanted to fall over but I didn’t. My plank sucked I was shaking and everything was burning and I was losing my footing but I did it. my first 5 pushups from my toes Rocked..the other 20 were questionable but I did a pushup from my toes!!
Then it was the BEAST!! First Cat went and she rocked it like always! Then I went and the first few were not to bad but it felt like it got heavier as I went along. He posted a video of Thursday and Fridays workout. I am the black pants and green shirt doing the beast right at the end. Midway thru I am standing and watching Cat with the beast …I didn’t even recognize myself. I was looking for someone bigger! that was cool!
I was on a high after this workout. I was so active on Saturday ! First thing in the morning I took the kids out to play (it was only 15 degrees out) we playing in the snow and I pulled them in the sled. When my mom came over I shoveled the deck! Then later in the afternoon I took ty sledding to the back hill. I pulled him in the sled out to the hill with my snowshoes…all 900 feet thru a few snowdrifts. He went down the hill I think 5 times, each time I walked down the hill and back up with the sled. The hill is about 600 feet long. The we walked home. At night when everyone went to bed I did a 30 minute interval workout on my T’mill along with some crunches.
Today I wasn’t as motivated with working out as I was getting things done. We cleaned out the kids rooms and closets it was a great day!! I hope I keep it up thru this week…tomorrow morning the temp is going to be –16..danger! at 6pm tonight it was already –7. Stay warm.
