Day 78-81

So... after 80 days of not missing a single day... I got sick for two days. :( I'm just kicking myself! I'm so sad!!!! So now I'm two days behind and am not going to finish in 90 days. It's so sad. I know it's probably not a big deal and that it's not my fault, but it would have been so cool to say that I had actually finished the 90-day program in 90 days. Not 92 days. I think I might double up two days this week to make up for it. We'll see. Since I plan on continuing on to do another round, I suppose it doesn't really matter, but it's just my personality. I really wanted to do this right. Sad.

Anyways... besides getting sick, things are going very well! No complaints, really. I'm officially down 16 pounds, which is very exciting. I'm 4 pounds away from where I was at the beginning of my senior year of high school. Not my skinniest, but it's cool to have a little "landmark" like that. The workouts themselves are going very well. Core synergistics still kicks my butt (I have that one today... ugh.) but it's getting easier. I'm wondering if the weights I use for this workout are too heavy? I use 8-pounders to everything in this one. He says to use light weights- I'm not sure if he means light to him or actually light, like three- or five- pounders. Whatever- the 8's are working perfectly fine for me. I'd rather go too high than too low!

Ab ripper x cannot defeat me! The last ten reps of the mason twist still blow me away, but the fact ultimately remains that I can DO them. It's quite an accomplishment, and I'm very proud. Trying to focus on the positive, here. I'm very discouraged by this two days behind thing. Maybe discouraged isn't the right word... I'm very pissed off about it. Yeah, that's better.

Well, here's to a better week! (My last week!)

  1. Don't worry, I don't think I even use anything past 10 lbs. Concentrate on perfect form instead of how much weight you're lifting. I work out with a bunch of guys who use wayyyy too much weight and can't complete the reps.

    Trust me, lift what feels right!
