I'm trying to stay calm and not get too excited with the changes I am seeing in my body!
On July 24, I went with a friend to see what Crossfit was all about. It was intense, muscle aching, puke inducing awesomeness!!!
Yes, sadly at 6am, no food on my belly, burpee's got the best of me. I yaked all over on the side of the building but could have gone back for more workout, except I was too embarrassed. Not because I puked, I was actually proud that I pushed myself hard enough to do that, but due to having kids and a weak bladder...well you can see where this is going lol.
So I packed up my incontinent self and went home!
But it wasn't a "oh that was a cool experience" kind of thing. It sparked a new desire for a different type of exercise. I still go to Zumba and love it, but I may actually like strength training. I've met various friends since then and worked out with at parks, backyards, living rooms anywhere someone was willing. I bought kettle bells and John has even joined me. I'm really enjoying it, and talk about stress relief!
So 5 days ago I started a challenge (the Crossfit place was doing it, so I joined in on my own). It's 21 days doing 60 pushups. Now I have baby whimpy arms and can't lift my body weight to save my life. But in just these few short days my arms are toner, my waist is tightening and I feel my strength increasing. I am doing modified pushups right now but I am working my way to full pushups. I started struggling to make it through just one set of 10, and I can now do 3 sets of 20!!!!!!
I know to some this is still whimpy, but I don't care I AM PROUD!!!
I can't wait to share before and afters of my arms. Be excited, you all have tickets to the gun show ;)
