I freaking hate Burpees.

Since I can't go to Greenlake tonight, I did the WOD: 100 burpees for time. My time: not so good (18:52). I did a warm up: ran around my block, sit-ups, dips, samson stretch, squats, and supermans.

The work-out last night was good but that was honestly the most unmotivated I have ever felt before a work-out. It was a struggle to even make myself go to Greenlake. I felt bad for my partner because of all the negative energy I was spreading. And I think it was his first night too, oops. I'm gratful for the good cheerleaders we have with GRFS though.

I've lost 3lbs (according to my scale) and I've noticed a change in how my clothes are fitting (not drastic by any means but a start!)

For the at-home work outs if I'm doing anything for time this is awesome: http://www.online-stopwatch.com/full-screen-stopwatch/

Bring it.

So here we are, heading into week 2. I'm getting ready to prepare my food plan/shopping list. It seems to help to have a tangible schedule of what/when to eat. I usually really like green peppers but I'm getting burnt out.

The good news is, I have noticed an increase of energy this week. I also played some tennis yesterday, even though it was my "day off". I must admit, I somewhat cheated today on eating. I had half of a whole wheat bagel with natural peanut butter and coffee with cream and sugar. I'm ready for the week though, looking to be sore so I know I did some work.


PS the "before" pictures were embarassing. So this 'challenge' better pay off so I can say that was a time of the past when I looked that way... eek.

Work out done this week:
Tuesday: @ home (push-ups)
Wednesday: @ home (walking lunges/sit-ups)
Thursday: Greenlake
Friday: Running (to FCF in Cap Hill) - (according to Mapmyrun.com it was 4.02 miles roundtrip)
Saturday: Tennis (1 hour)
Sunday: Rest.

Days 1-3

So this is my first official blog. I've started the GRFS Challenge and so far so good! I'm also doing the Zone diet. I'm doing well keeping motivated I just hope it keeps up. I did something like this 2 summers ago and lost almost 15lbs. The only problem is, I did it for the wrong reasons and so I gained it back. :(

I'm excited for the work-out today. Pull-ups are NOT my favorite but I'm attracted to challenge and getting better at things I suck at. See you at Greenlake.
