I'm still store from the 300 lunges I did on Friday. But it's not so bad today. I went for a 2 mile night run in the rain. Life is busy right now, somethings gotta give, hope it's not my sanity...

What am I busy with right now? Oh, it's the usual stuff, life in general, plus still nursing a baby, and the extra stuff is that I'm helping plan our 20 year high school reunion, and just got a new assignment for church that won't push me over the edge but is gonna try. But I got in my exercise! Woot, go me.

Sprint, Lunges, Jog

This should have been "Sprint, Lunges, Sprint" but the second sprint was so pathetic I started to walk and jogged the rest of the way. Still, here was my workout this morning:

Sprint around the block - 2:19!!
300 Lunges (50 at a time with a little walk in between) - 14 minutes
Sprint, walk, then jog - 3:00

Sprint Around the Block

Did two sprints this morning, first time around was a record for this post-pregnancy life at 2:20! Go me. And then I walked back over to our house for a 20 minute break and helped Wesley finish some homework, then out for another quick sprint before they left for the bus, and I got 2:27 that time. Pretty good. I didn't exercise yesterday, so the sprints this morning are to make up for yesterday, and I'm going to do planks too to count for today. :)

Going for Golden

I did a good job last week at working out almost everyday. On Friday I did Zuzka's Full Body Blast workout here - goes like this:

  • High Knees 100x
  • Push up w/ knee tuck, alt legs
  • High Knees 100x
  • One leg deadlift w/ 5 leg pulses (5 sets each leg)
  • High Knees 100x
  • Leg lift toe touch - lying down, 30x

My time for the first round 5:51, by the end of second round was 12:01, 3rd round 17:55. I loved and was motivated by what she said at the end of the video at 9:40 ~

"Just workout like this once a day, you really don't need more than that to keep yourself in great shape. The only other thing that you need to pay attention (to) is your diet, so if you can be good with your diet and do 15 minute workout that are this intense... You're GOLDEN!" - Zuzka

I know I can do the workouts, and so I'm half way there! Now I just need to keep my diet clean. And she had another video that I watched last week (but can't find now) where she says to make broccoli, spinach, and carrots the base of each meal, so I'm doing that too. And when those sneaky sugary treats come around, I'm following her advice to turn away and not give them any attentions and say ~
"It's just not worth it." 
And here's one more quote I've got on my wall:
"The junk food you've wanted for an hour (or day or week or whatever) or the body you've wanted for years."
