This week went well overall, although I was slightly disappointed to not see ANY changes on the scale, although I guess no change is better than a change in the wrong direction. I tried to wake up early and do my workout before work, since my parents are coming into town and I won’t be able to workout whenever I want for 4 days, I figured if I started working out early a week in advance I would be used to it and I would be good to go. But I am having a really really hard time waking up to do it. Maybe this week will be better than last week.

Of my goals this week made it to 4 out of the 5, which isn’t bad, if the scale would have moved in the right direction I would have gotten 5 out of 5… Food wise this week I think I did pretty good, although I made brownies and had 1 brownie 3 days this week, I planned it into my day which helped. Next week I’ll be better though, no brownies. I just felt the need to make them, ya know… and you can’t make them and have none, but like I said i managed to only have 1 150 calorie brownie a few days. Which is some awesome willpower.

Now here is a breakdown of each workout throughout the week…

Burn circuit 1 – Seemed much easier this week. I upped my weights on both the sumo squat/hip lift and the chest fly/hip rais

Burn circuit 2 – Was still super hard this week! I upped my weights on sumo squat/bicep and thought it was going to be too much, but I managed. Also did 2 extreme push ups on my toes this week, last week I barely did 1! I noticed I need lifting gloves- my fingers get super sore from the 20 lb weights.

Interval/Ab burner – This kicked my ass again, although my knee was in much better shape this week, it was still a super hard workout. I had to pause it at the 16 minute left mark to catch my breath and take a breather. Overall felt great though, hopefully next week I can make it through the entire thing.

Burn circuit 3 – Bumped up lunge/calf raise to 25 lbs tihs week. Definitely felt it EVERYWHERE. Aside from needing real 10 lb weights rather than plates, its going good so far.

Burn it off/Recharge – I really enjoy the high intensity of this. It kicked my but every time. I added weights on the lunge/lateral raise. Only 5 pounders like Chalene does… still felt good. I really enjoyed recharge although I kind of wish it was a little longer. But overall a good day.

Week 2 another success. Can’t wait to start week 3 tomorrow.

Wish me luck!
