Sorry I have not blogged in awhile. I've still been at it though. I am still seeing Sam twice a week and he is still kicking my butt lol! I really have to do better when it comes to my own cardio at home. I am the type of person who does it just to say I did it. I really need to get in the habit of pushing myself though. I know I won't have Sam forever. We did two new exercises on Thursday and I was really feeling it yesterday.
Plank on Stability Ball
This was the first of the two. It was harder than I thought it would be. I only did 3 of these and I held each for 60 seconds. I was sweating like a crazy person!
Stability Ball Knee Tuck
I thought this was going to kill me lol! It was insanely hard to do. I did not do many of these at all.
Today I am feeling better, but yesterday I was hurting in parts of my core that I did not realize existed. Soreness always makes me realize which muscles are used when I do simple things like walking. I can tell I am getting much stronger though, and I absolutely love that.
Here is a list of the rest of my workout:
90 modified push ups
60 leg lifts
a circuit of (10 burpees, sprinting half a track, 15 modified push ups, walking down stairs, back up stairs, 10 walking lunges, and sprinting the other half of the track) I did this circuit twice.
I've been asked what a burpee is, so I'm including a link to it too.
I can remember back 7 weeks ago, and I never would have been able to do all of this. I have really improved. My eating is better too. When I do go out to eat I am learning to only eat half of what I get. It has truly been a learning process. I definitely have a long way to go, but I'm definitely making progress.
Today's song has grown on me. I did not like this song at all the first time I heard it, but now it really makes me move. Enjoy!
