challange and other stuff...

Happy Sunday everyone! I woke up in a crappy tired short tempered mood this morning. I almost canceled my gym time all together and instead mope at home. But today was the day that I would complete week threes challange (try a new class/equipement). I know "technically" its not in week 3 but I have been a week behind every week so why start now???

I initially was aiming for a friday early am pump class as my new class. I have been wanting to try one. But after the EXHAUSTING 13 hour shift I had on Thursday, getting up at 450am to head to the gym just wasnt happenning. My next time to fit in a new class was this morning.

The class... CX works. Its a 30 min quick moving all core class. The instructor said its from your underarms to your thighs. OMG I LOVED IT!!! I was so worried. I have had 2 csections and have NO core. I am sure I will feel it tomorrow but today was awesome! We did work with a circle weight that goes on a bar and the bands. It was so much fun! Im so glad I tried a new class! It will definately be moved into my regular rotation. I think it might help my running too!

As for this coming week - 100oz of water a day. Holy moly thats a lot of water. Seeing that I JUST saw this now with half the day gone - it wont really be starting until tomorrow. And I look forward to trying out some new recipes to share :)

This week I weighed in at 170 - lost 1.5 lbs this week.

This coming weeks goals -

1. 100oz water starting Monday :)
2. Try out that pump class I have wanted to try.
3. Make Julys training schedule ... marathon training is coming up!
4. Lose 2 lbs.


  1. Yeah, that water intake scares me. I've never "done" so much before, so we'll see how it goes.
    Good luck!

  2. Sounds like you had a good week - 1.5 lb loss! Woohoo!
    And I am happy that even though you felt you were late getting it in, you got to a new class - good for you! That's the spirit!!!
    Even better that you really enjoyed the class and want to continue doing it. I could use a lot of help in my core area...I feel like it is in an abyss somewhere!
    Have a great week and keep going! Start with 2 bottles of water right when you get up - that will help get the day started and you'll get those 100 oz in easy!

  3. 100oz is not too bad, just make sure you space it out so you're not peeing every hour! :)

    I love that you're enjoying the classes and that you've got so much get up and go! I need to take a page out of your book and get this rump a-moving!

  4. I get that, I'm 2 sections & no core too! Glad to hear you found a class you love!

  5. So glad you enjoyed the new class! I've got to focus more on my core, but I always dread it!
    Increasing water intake takes some 'practice' - try little things like taking a few gulps before eating anything, drink at least once in the middle of your meal, etc.
    Good luck with this week :)
