What a difference a muslce relaxer and good night of sleep makes. Whatever it was that was keeping me down the last few days is G.O.N.E. Woot!
Got up this morning feeling fresh as a flower, headed to Edge Fitness and officially met my partner for the Be Strong Challenge, Lori. She was pretty much awesome. And she didn’t believe me when I said I had a daughter in 6th grade… “What? Did you have her when you were TWELVE??” were her exact words. Did I mention she was awesome?? 🙂
We ROCKED that challenge. I surpised myself, and I think she did too. We had each set goals for the push-ups, which we met and EXCEEDED. I was hoping to do 30 push-ups in 60 seconds and somehow squeaked 47 out of my arse. And they were full proper form, tummy-down-to-a-golf-ball-on-the-ground pushups. WHEW! After 70-something squats, 40 something burpees, 40 something over-head slams, I could barely squeak out 25 or so jungle gym rows. I WAS SPENT. But in SUCH a good way. WOOT. Still four more days of the challenge, so I’ll push it at Bootcamp tomorrow and watch the food all weekend.
Starting with TOMORROW: Having a bunch o ladies over tomorrow night for a MAGIC MIKE viewing. Yep, we’re THOSE girls. Getting all hot and bothered over Channing Tatum on the screen ripping clothes off. I know it’s not a very well written movie – we’re not really watching it for it’s deep plot. I’m sure we’ll find stuff to talk about around the dance scenes.
I did make some paleo/primal dishes. I made some meatballs, which I have yet to decide on a sauce for. Found a Martha Stewart recipe that calls for chipotle chile sauce and honey – I’m leaning toward that… but I’m afraid to deviate from the Italian meatball norm… hmmm. I also made a batch of BROWNIES. Thank you PALEOmg!! (We’ll see if any of my lady friends read my blog by the way they pick at/avoid the brownies I guess. I think they are DELICIOUS! But I also haven’t been eating much sugar all week. 🙂
HAPPY THURSDAY SOON TO BE FRIDAY!!
