Body Beast Day 4 & 5

These last two days have been tough because I have been fighting a bad headache. Day 4 was worse than Day 5, but I knew I would regret it if I didn’t at least try and I don’t know about you but I really hate that playing catch up feeling.  Somedays I always feel like I”m playing catchup, do you have those kinds of days?   SO I was going to give it my best shot and surprisingly it started to go away enough to let me push through.

Well, I’m going to tell you straight up Day 4 – Cardio was a killer. I have never sweat, swore or got out of breath all in one go in a long time. I was so relieved to know it was only 30 min.  There’s no way I could have done it any longer. Some of the moves/exercises were so hard, like this TOE TAP where you have to tap your toe on your bench as fast as you can.  OMG! Let me tell you I had to have a lot of breaks just to catch my breath. Of course, he had to throw in those PLYO PUSHUPS too. Those I did on my knees, no way could I do a full push up. But I got it done and as usual, I felt amazing after and thank goodness for my ENERGIZE there’s no way I could have pushed through without it, it kind of made me feel a little bad ass. Just saying. lol.

Yesterday’s workout was “Shoulders” now honestly I have never done a program that specifies certain areas of the body. I usually get the upper body, leg day etc. but this program is different in a way that it zones in on certain areas. So this was new to me. The one thing I learned is that this area “shoulders” I’m pretty weak at. I mostly used my 8lbs and very little 10 lbs. No big guns here. lol.  Not that I want big guns at all, but it’s really nice to start to feel the toning starting to work. No more chicken wings flapping in the air lol.  Again there were some tough moves, but I noticed I can actually start to lift my arms higher than I did before! SO that’s awesome, that’s my sign that progress is coming! Isn’t that a great feeling when you start something and with a little patience and consistency you start to see your results no matter what it is in your life.?

SO Today is Friday and it’s technically a “Rest” Day that’s a tough one, just because I get eager to do a new workout and see what Sagi( the Trainer) is going to make me do. But Rest is just as important as working out. So if the weather is decent enough I might take my baby LOLA for a short run after work.  We’ve had some crazy weather so it’ll be nice to get outside if it’s nice enough today.   Have a HAPPY HAPPY FRIDAY !!
