One Day Closer.



(Post Work Out)
Today I had a meeting early for work and then had some school work. When I left my meeting the gal at the front desk said,"Have a great weekend". It made me slow down for a moment as I totally thought it was THURSDAY. I thought wow, aren't you ahead of the game!

Yep! I have no idea how I made my meeting as I was sure it was Thursday? How did I do that? I think my brain is tired! Then it all came to me...that meant Sweet J did not return her homework and I have even less time to get my readings done. UGH!

I laughed it off and decided to head home and try to ride on the trainer and follow it with a run. I rode for 30 minutes. My legs felt tired but I have been on the bike a lot(for me)due to not having any real plan. (PLAN coming soon:)

After the ride I went and jumped on the mill. I made it two miles. I was POOPED! I was a little dissapointed that I didn't run more but I have to remember this is a place to start and that was a solid 50 min. of cardio. I then decided to attempt a challenge that my buddy Blonde Ponytail had suggested.

100 burpees with pushups in 10 minutes

My legs were shaky but I thought I would give it a shot. I already knew that I would modify and take out the push ups.

So I went for it and did 100 burpess in 6 minutes, 7 seconds. My upper body is weak and my lower body is carrying my extra pounds :) BUT I did it!

So today I am one step closer to where I want to be and have to say I am really enjoying the trainer.

On a side note and speaking of variety! I have a friend who is SUPER creative and snazzy. Snazzy, like straight out of a magazine snazzy! She just started a BLOG called Lady Makes and Bakes! Go check it out if you want to add some variety to your blog roll and spice up your life.
