Wow its been a few days since i did a decent post! Im still gobsmacked that its now 4 years since i started this and i am now into the 5th year...not bad considering i didnt expect to last even a lousy 6 weeks! Whats also amazing in my different attitude towards hitting that anniversary to last year...last year i was peeved...i was annoyed that 3 years later i still weighed so much...and i felt i had wasted a lot of time over the previous couple of years..this year i GET that those delays...those plateaus...those times of falling off track are just simply all lessons in MAINTAINING this lifestyle.
I am also quite amazed by the pic i took yesterday(refer previous post)...its not there yet but my body is certainly starting to look more balanced. I actually really like that photo! LOL
Yesterday i had gym. I did 30 minutes on the treadmill then a PT session of weights...was a new program...and she had me doing this insane move...one was holding on to the TRX the other pulling on weights on the cable machine....but it was a one legged squat where when you squat the idea is to have the leg up at a right angle and get it as close to the floor at possible...LOL lemme say i have very sore butt cheeks today! lol We also did some rows and well i cant even straighten my arms today...quite pathetic sight today! lol
I then did another 50 minutes or so of interval work on the treadmill...and then my body balance class. I must say every class of balance i do i love it a lil more. Whilst im not a fan of the yoga moves...there are lots of pieces in it that remind me of ballet/dance moves plus i love the music. All up i burnt just over 1400 calories. The interesting thing is 4 weeks ago...to burn just over 2900 calories it took me 8 hours and 45 minutes this week to burn 3600 calories took me 7 hours and 13 minutes so i definitely think with adding the running back in, the RPM classes and higher weights in body pump is definitely increasing the intensity...YAY!!!
I have been watching united states of tara...awesome awesome show...only 3 episodes left and then i will have to wait and be patient and wait for series 3 which is prolly not till next year...if you havent seen it tho watch it! its great!
