Days 5 and 6

Day 5: This day sucked. In fact, I think it was the worst yet, but that's only because I haven't worked out today yet. Today's is going to be a kick in the pants, as my husband would say. Day 5 was 2 rounds of a 400 meter run and 50 lunges. We live on a hill, so the run was 200 meters uphill, and 200 down. The first run wasn't too bad, but the second was awful. After doing 50 lunges, my legs were burning. Day 5 was not timed.

Day 6: Yesterday I had to do 100 push ups for time. I only got through 10 of them doing real push ups. The other 90 I did from my knees. I took several breaks and was finished in 5 minutes and 30 seconds. This was not the hardest work out ever, but I'm sore today.

Today, I have to do 4 rounds of:

15 burpees
25 squats
35 sit ups

The burpees are what kill me.

Overall, I am not sure how much progress I'm making. I feel like I'm doing well and then I try to put on some clothes that I feel like should fit me and I can't even get them over my ass. Or I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror at some unflattering angle and realize how much stomach is there where there didn't used to be any! I think I probably need to be running on top of Crossfitting, but it's pretty tough with a baby. I don't have a lot of time every day to devote to working out.

My husband and I just celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary on August 1st. One year ago, I was in the best shape I have ever been in! Today, I feel like I am in the worst!

  1. Oh sweetie you had a baby, don't be so hard on yourself!!! You will get back in shape again, it's only been a week of you working out everyday.

    At least you have an excuse, I gained weight because I got lazy. Even though I am doing WW, I know if I really want to get results I am going to have to start running and working out again. I told myself that I was going to start on Monday and yet I have not started yet.
