Hi everyone! I'm back with a fitness update. I've been LITERALLY working my ass off in the gym and I'm finally seeing the results! I failed to take a before picture and my measurements. I wish I did, so that I could see what I've done. The scale hasn't moved like I should it would but my clothes are fitting pretty well and my new-found strength is impressive! I can do pushups again! WHOO HOO!
Crossfit has really changed my life for the better. Although I haven't ran in a while, my cardio and endurance level is still the same and when I do run, I can run for a long time. My legs are a lot stronger and my recovery time is a lot shorter due to all the squat movements I've been doing. I'm VERY much on my way to getting my sexy back by March for Camryn's baptism.
Here are a few pics that I've shared on Instagram:
This was a couple of months back when I did the front squat for the first time. Since this pic was taken, I've PR'd (personal record) at 53kgs or 117lbs. I started at 35 kgs in this pic.
These are the girls that I joined with, minus Julie. We're each others' biggest cheerleaders!
Sweat angels are always made at the gym! LOL. It was suprising to see my ass like this.
The left side was me on 8/2/2011 and the right was taken on 12/10/2011. My daughter was born on 7/22/2011 and since that day, I've lost a good 50 lbs. I still have a lot of work to do, but it's amazing to see how you're progressing visually.
The Christmas weekend threw me off a bit, but I'm ready and willing to get back to work! This is the WOD (workout of the day):
Time Trials: 800m Run and Push Ups: 50(30 for women) timed separately
Can't wait for all this jiggle to be GONE!
