Circuit Training

Need I say more??

oh wait... ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! ok thats it!! lol

I have been scared to death to go to this class because of what people have told me. And after tonight I find it to be true. Harder than anything I have ever been thru and yes, that includes child birth. I have never in my life have ever thought that being run over by a MAck truck was a far better choice. I am truly not kidding!!!


Circuit.. lets define this.

A. A closed usually circular line that goes around an object or an area.

B. A path or route a complete traversal of which without a local change of direction returning to the starting point.

C. The act of following a path or route.

Ok so lets take point B ... there is nothing fun about busting your hiney going around the first path, when only to find out you must again follow the same route that almost killed you the first time. So onto the same circuit for a second time. (killer)

only to find out that when I crawled to my last station, it was time for a brand new path!!!!




WTH, did she not try to kill me the first 2 times??? I mean cmon already!


I was ready to walk at this point, but something inside me said.. for the love of god Robin.. PUSH THRU it. I hate when I try to reason with myself and and myself wins. Hate her sometimes..lol

Needless to say I made thru 1 round of circuit 3 , and with the thought of me tossin my cookies in front of 20 other women I have to work out with on a daily basis, I decided to save my self the embarressment and pat myself on the back for what I had just accomplished.

I have much respect for people who do this and dont need to stop for breaks.

At this point I have truly have a love/hate relationship with class.. but I will tell you this.


I WILL BE BACK!!

And I WILL complete everything.. without stopping, without walking and without having to vomit haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

YOU AINT GOT NOTHIN ON ME CIRCUIT!!!!

see you soon.. mwahhhhhhhhhhhh

(note to self::: bring a change of clothes, because you will be SOAKED!!)

(p.s. I decided I hate mt. climbers)

(p.p.s. lemon squeezes are ridiculous! I only say that bcuz the trainer did 10 to my 2..nuf said!)

1 Week down and I'm down

so excited!

So my last post I mentioned that I joined a Biggest Loser Contest.

This week I am happy to report to be almost 6lbs lighter.

I guess since I really only worked out 3 times it paid to really watch what I have been eating.

PLus its hot, so it always feels better to eat light.

This week I really challenged myself to do something at home as far as working out.. so I did some strength training and I also did 1 minute planks. Not all ended up being 1 minute, but I did try.

Thanks to everyone else who went for the challenge as well.

This weeks challenge is AB ROLL with BALL




Ab rolls are a challenging exercise that targets all the muscles of the core. This advanced move requires attention to detail to avoid straining the back. Make sure you only roll out as far as you comfortably can. If you feel any strain in the back, back off the exercise or avoid it completely.
1.Kneel in front of the ball and place the hands on the ball, parallel to one another and with the elbows bent.
2.Contract the abs and pull the belly towards the spine.
3.Slowly roll forward and out as far as you comfortably can, until the feel the abs engage. Don't go so far that you hurt your back or collapse.
4.This move does not involve bending the hips, so keep them straight throughout the exercise.
5.Keeping the body straight, slowly pull your body back using your arms and abdominals.
6.Continue for 1-3 sets of 8-12 reps, avoiding this move if you have any back problems.
7.You can change the difficult of the move by placing your hands closer in or further out.


Challenge yourself to do a set or 2 each day!!

ROUND 1 -OVER

Hey friends, my first round with HCG is over and I lost a whopping 15.7

Cant blame the diet, blame the dieter. I seriously could have done so much better than I did.

I was really hoping to drop about 25 lbs in my 40 days. But it didnt happen And I must be content with my 15.7 I am going to wait my 5 weeks and then go for Round 2. Hoping I will be much more prepared for it (mentally) next time. I did have alot going on in this first 40 days, but I am not going to give into the excuses. I did what I could do and I should just be happy with it right??


I do have to say I lost inches too.. 2 inches around my waist. I can now wear sz 16 jeans... (pretty exciting) xl tops. Gotta love that. My frame is smaller and for that I am thankful!!

Til next time HCG... mwahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Sooooooooooo... I took a few days off!!

Many of you who know me, know that I have had quite the weekend.


Thursday-Circus


Friday-Marcus' going away party.(left for the Army today)


Saturday-nephews 1st birthday


Sunday-Easter


One thing after another and I had a horrible time controlling myself. I decided to take a few days off of HCG and I getting back at it tomorrow morning.


Can honestly say .. that I ate like I did before HCG.. before Eating Clean... Before exercising.


And to tell yo uthe truth.. I am so miserable.


Like I totally lost control. I drank tons of water before the meals, but I just wanted the food, I totally felt helpless against it. I know it sounds crazy, but its how I felt, even though I was bloated, uncomfortable, full, miserable and have never felt so guilty in my life.


well, tomorrow is a new day and a new start for me!!!


I do not EVER want to feel like this again. I think I gained a total of 7 lbs in those 4 days.


NEVER AGAIN!!


Its incredibly embarressing to tell you all of this, but know I am not perfect and I knew these days were coming... atleast now that its happened, I know how I feel afterwards and feel I could now maybe tackle these kinda of days with alot more will power and determination!!


Wish me luck, I am so excited to get back at my HCG!!!

hmmmmmm...NOT HAPPY

ok hcg'ers i need some feedback. I am a little frustrated to say the least. Woke up again this morning to yet another .2 GAIN. I am hungry, crabby, emotional and on top of all that I gain.

Now I realize it says you may stall or have little to no weight loss at all, but I am gaining??!!

Can you really "stall" this early in the game??

I am only on day 11.

Now I know for a fact this diet works. I have had positive results thus far -minus the last 2 days.

And I will not give up. But I need someone to explain to me exactly what is happening here and what i can do to make the numbers go in the other direction!!

thanks!

Time for Week 2 Of HCG

I am so excited for the work week to start again. I had no idea the weekend would be so hard for me. Too many temptations for me just sitting at home. YIKES!!

I started this last monday, so its been a week. Ofcourse your first 2 days are Loading. So since last Wednesday I have dropped 9.2lbs. Very excited about the results I am seeing. It seriously makes the hunger pains worth it. And honestly, the hunger pains have been very bearable.


The crazy part is... this weekend when I caved in and had some movie theater popcorn(not that much).. it wasnt even because my stomach was growling.. its because it was right there in front of me and I didnt have any self control. I know I am still weak and give into the cravings(not hunger...cravings). So i ithink for now I will just not put myself in those situations.


I think I might start taking weekly pics too... I swear I see physical changes already. My stomach feels and looks much smaller and hubby said so too. Makes me beyond happy when someone else notices. makes it all worth it.


Heres to week 2 on HCG!!
