Work It Out

After a week without a workout, BR kicked my butt today. It's still so amazing to me how quickly I can decondition. I feel like I pushed hard tonight. I felt exhausted and nauseated when I was done. Last time I felt that way I was sick. Luckily that was not the case this evening. As soon as I recovered and drank a protein shake, I felt better. My dinner didn't make me queasy so I'm sure how I felt was based on how I worked.

I can feel it now... Especially in my back. My legs and abs were sore during but not so much now. I hope I feel differently (soreness, please!) tomorrow.

I usually post my BR stats on my BR page but I'm going to post that info in this post. This is fairly short as was the previous post so I don't think it will be post overload or anything!

Today's workout:

Sexy Girl Crush
50/10 intervals, repeat the cycle three times.

1. Plank & leg jumps -
56, 50, 53

2. 10 high knees and 10 forward kicks -
5, 4, 4

3. Wood-chop, roll & jump -
6, 6, 5

4. Push-up, burpee, forward & backward jumps -
5, 5, 5

Girl Crush Abs
50/10 intervals

1. Downward dog plank - 12
2. Lying oblique twists - 14
3. Bent knee (ugi) switch - 12

Most of these exercises called for a ugi ball which I do not have. I just did the exercises on the ground and substituted a kettle bell for some and a weighted ball for the last abs exercise.

Great workout! I missed working out and really missed BR. I'm so happy to be back to it. Taking two weeks off for surgery will be difficult but I will be doing lots of walking as I can. I will also be doing the arm exercises that I can tolerate. I know I will be anxious to get back into the harder work!!

  1. So, the most important things you can do is to eat a clean, healthy diet and include core workout in order to burn calories so you can shed that layer of unwanted body fat that is keeping your six pack abs from popping out.
