End of the week

Well I guess technically tomorrow is the end of my week since I still have 1 more day of 30 day shred and w1 100 pushups/200 situps. It is my last week of w1 of c25k and I am just exhausted right now. I am looking forward to my run today but with the lack of sleep last night I am not feeling top of my game. My poor Pixie has been dealing with hives and last night was another outbreak. Not as bad as they have been but enough to cause fever and lots of itchy scratchy. It took an hour of power struggles to get her to take her medicine. Once sh did she was fine and felt better and was able to finally sleep, of course by then it was 3 am (she awoke at 130 in misery after I had just fallen asleep). We both slept until very late this morning, I feel like most of the day is gone and I am walking in a sleepless fog. This may very well be a 2 cup of coffee day.

I totally expected to wake up this morning with super sore abs, I do believe in total I did about 200 crunches when I combined the 30 day shred with the 200 sit up program. I do think it worked better to do those 2 plans after finishing the shred but before the cool down stretches. The pushups were a little harder in some ways but at least this time I didn't pull my rotator cuff like the first day. No sore abs, no sore legs, no sore pecs. . . body is adjusting nicely to all that I am putting it through.

Have you seen the new show Losing it with Jillian Michaels? If you haven't you simply must! This weeks episode was emotional but inspiring. The mom, Deb, was very obese, on diabetes meds etc and in 6 weeks she dropped 32 lbs and trained AND ran a 5k! If that doesn't light a spark under my ass. If a 230lb 53yo woman can train for and run a 5k in 6 weeks than damn right This 31yo 127lb woman will too! I have a few goals to reach before we vacation in July and if I reach them I plan to award myself with a new swimsuit, heaven knows the ones I have now are years old and I could use one a bit more my age? A little less 18-25ish but without being a "mom" suit. The retro in me really wants a pinup bathing suit but darn they are pricey and i have never been able to pull off the one piece look :(

    I was right, Babe, you ARE the only thing I miss about FB. And then I remembered... (duh!!) I could be reading your blog. Brilliant! Added bonus? You're fabulously inspiring! Bad Ass I guess, you make me want to get OFF of mine!! Nicely done. And that crack about never being "able to pull off the one piece look" made me laugh out loud!! But I know it takes all kinds. Love you!!!

  2. I think you'd look great in a pin-up suit! That's actually my goal for NEXT summer. I LOVE Jillian's new show and my first "measureable" goal for me is also a 5k!!! I'm hoping next year I'll be able to do the local triathlon they have here. (Swim 1/2 mile, bike 12 miles, and run 3.5 miles)

  3. Lizzie!! Good gravy have I missed you! I so wish we could get together in person, we need to set up a chat date LOL And no really one pieces are the most unflattering thing on me ever, I have a super long torso and NO BOOBS. Now get off your lazy ass and MOVE IT! ;-)

    Ooh Tabatha I have been looking at training for 10Ks, marathons and triathlons too. My first goal is the 5K and I'll have to set up my own virtual 5K in august as our soonest one after my training is Nov :/ Swimming is the hard one for me, my lungs rebel at my chest being under water, some childhood trauma from swim team I am sure lol Heck I wish I could be ready for the 10K in Sept I think it is, girls only race.
