President's Day Top 3
- I got the greatest compliments today when at the gym! It was definitely a hodge-podge of a workout, but it was a great one at that. Got in some double unders--still working on those and still getting better (when my hair doesn't get in the way). Then I moved on to a 3 mile run. I honestly wish I could have run longer, but my body just wasn't having it. I finished up (ha!) with an entire back workout, more double unders, and some handstand pushups. I wasn't trying to show off or anything, but a boot camp had just finished up, and some of the older ladies I've previously met came over to talk to me as I got ready to head out. Their side of the conversation went along these lines: "We were watching you do those handstand pushups and just thinking, 'I wish I could do that!' We all think you look amazing!" Aww, thanks ladies! Unfortunately, I'm nowhere near my end goal, but obviously I'm on the right path!
- Eating has been pretty clean and I can tell a major difference in how my body feels. No more hippo feeling! Thank goodness! Also, since I've been trying to up my water intake, I'm looking less flat--my muscles are loving the hydration.
- As of tomorrow, I will no longer be lonely in the gym! My workout partner-in-crime is back in town--yay! I don't know what workout
he will put me throughI will put him through, but it's sure to be a tough one! I may be a girl, but I like to leave the gym drenched in sweat! And I figure at the rate that I'm improving on double unders, I will be able to do that intense CrossFit workout in about 1 1/2 - 2 weeks! However, I know for as hard as I've been working out, he's been putting in equally as much effort down in 80+ degree weather which I have to be constantly reminded of. Did I mention it snowed here yesterday? YUCK!
I'll leave you with this picture, from when I got first hair gloss treatment about 5 weeks ago (time for a redo!):
Sleep well, friends!
