Thursday WOD

This Thursday my workout consisted of:

  • 15 min run for a warm up
  • 30 second plank
  • 2 min jump rope
  • 10 hills
  • 4 min jump rope
  • 20 hills
  • 3 rounds of 30 second planks
  • 5 rounds of 6 reverse pull ups with a body band

Whew! what a workout! I should have snapped some pictures, but sometimes when you’re in the zone you are only concerned about surviving the workout and water lol!

Yesterday was my little brothers 27th birthday and my mom went all out and cooked a ultra southern meal. Fried cabbage, fried pork chops, homemade macaroni and cheese, red beans and rice, fried chicken, green beans, baked chicken, and chocolate cake. Oh and Kool-Aid. My mom did her thang! I of course could not say no to such a delight, and ate like it was going out of style. LOL. Let the bloat come on! It was worth it! Thanks Mom!

This Labor day holiday, I think I am going to go to a pool party a friend is hosting, and go to my Family Reunion in the country. I have some choices to make a big part of me wants to lay low and relax and chill out, but family comes 1st so you might catch me on the road to the country! Hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday!

Tuesday WOD

 

This was the workout I did yesterday. I did it with so much enthusiasm, my trainer was shocked. He wondered what had gotten into me and whatever it was, I needed to keep on with it. I told him it was probably my food intake. That was my guess. My guess was also, that I was coming off of a Mini Vacay and my spirit was refreshed. Hopefully I can keep my enthusiasm up. I ran 25 hills and did not complain once. I did 16 in a row without one tiny break. I did not let the fatigue discourage me. The only thing I was not successful at was my workout on the pull up bar. That’s okay, I will work at it.   I hit the punching  bag like someone had offended my Mother! I was in a rare, but welcomed beast mode. Do you guys have days like this? It felt amazing that my trainer was happy about my performance. Let’s see how Thursday pans out. I am excited.

Today I read the latest entry from the Ascent blog and she challenged me. To do what I feared the most. 10 pull ups!!! I am going to do it. By the end of this year. I am going to do it! Watch me work! Another update on my ever changing physique. My abs are starting to play peek-a-boo. This means one thing. They are on the rise. I have never had abs. Well I have had a silhouette (What I am working with now) If I keep up with my clean eating, and my workouts, I will have a little something something. I will keep you guys posted! HURRAH!

Transformation Tuesdays and some

It appears that my draft for yesterday’s post did not save, however I was able to recover my work and post it for today.

So I am going to give a weekend recap and give my latest Transformation Tuesday!

Friday was a fun night,
I went out on the town, I went out to happy hour at a very fancy schmancy place, Trulucks. I had Pinot Noir, and a Crab Cake and Scallops with Mash potatoes, that were flavorful, fresh, and scrumptious. I then went to grooves where my Pinot Noir kicked in and I instantly got sleepy. Maybe I should have went to Starbucks for a Nightcap. Meh.20130805-150025.jpg20130806-102815.jpg

Saturday, I woke up bright and early to do Cardio circuits with my trainer. A little back story, he was extremely upset at my performance on last Tuesday, (He asked me to run for 30 mins in 100 degree weather and I refused) Instead I did 30 hills, and my knee was sore so he made me take off on Thursday. He told me he wanted no excuses on Saturday. The sun was out and we did 3 rounds of sprints at 4 different stations he had set up. For 2 minutes at each station me and a few other clients:

  • 50 yard suicides
  • Bounding and high-knees for 50 yards
  • 5 points of running backwards, forward sprints,backwards, jog
  • 2 25 yard suicides with one 10 second rest

I Mia Hammed it on the 3rd round(Took My shirt off). I was FINISHED!800+ calories burned!

I went on about my day and, spent some QT with my sis at the pool.

I also did some apartment hunting and we saw some very nice apartments. We have narrowed down where we want to live and I couldn’t be more excited! I had a nice meal and wine prepared for me in the evening and it was very relaxing!

Sunday, I woke up and went to The Galleria with my good homegirl, and we went to Kona ate some sushi, had a few drinks, and did a little window shopping.

After that I was a bum! I read my book on my Kindle (The Hunger Games Mockingjay), and watched a little of the Preseason Cowboys Hall of Fame game, and HBO, Showtime, Style Network, and Bravo!.

Now time for Transformation Tuesdays! I have been tracking my workout progress and I am finally at the point where I really can see the change in the photos! My mind has to catch up I still see myself as the person I was in January, give it time I should get with it. Here is my transformation:

Thanks to my eating, and trainers efforts, I am shredding! WHOOP! I hope someone finds this inspirational. It is still a tricky road. I still love fried chicken, and loads of carbs, however, I am making sure I do cheat, but I do not go overboard. Today I have a session with my trainer, I really hope it isn’t another cardio day, but for some strange reason I feel like it will be. Anywho, Happy Tuesday!
