I think Neil is trying to kill me.
This is how my morning started:
When I saw the workout posted last night I thought, “This is going to suck, but I can do it…” I also kept reminding myself that you don’t get results by doing the same stuff you’ve always done. So this morning I burpee-d.
It was hard! SO HARD! I actually could not finish this workout. It’s the first workout I’ve quit in a long time and at first I was disappointed in myself for not being able to physically finish it out—asthma started kicking it after finishing 15 burpees+sprint. But then I quickly reminded myself that there was NO reason for disappointment. Hell, I’d just finished 105 burpees in less than 12 minutes. That’s not the full workout, but it sure is something to be DAMN PROUD of.
And then I went and swam laps for 20 minutes, which was tough, too, since I’ve not swam in a few months.
Overall, I’d call today’s workout(s) a learning success. I’m just glad tomorrow’s GPP workout does not include Burpee Demons. I hate them—but I only hate them because they are hard, which means I should learn to love them.
Okay, progress pics time. I went ahead and took these today since I was already in a swimsuit.
Photos in the purple sports bra were taken ONE MONTH ago. Photos in the bikini were taken this morning. No touchups or photoshopping—just results! :)
This has all come from weight lifting and not a lot of cardio because of my stress fracture (which I think is now healed). Don’t be afraid to lift!
