5 Weeks to GO: DAY 1

Well the 5 week countdown has officially begun!! Day 1 done and let me tell you, it was AWESOME!! I started off the day with an early morning kick-ass weight training session!! I still can't get over the fact that my legs are still sore!! I'm doing 3 sets of 15 repetitions of quite a few killer leg exercises (squats - numerous variations, lunges, deadlifts, leg bridges). I think when I'm all done, I've done about 300 repetitions of leg exercises!! It's insane!!! But I love it!! I feel awesome and strong!!

Breakfast was 3 boiled eggs (whites only), warm spinach salad, protein drink and water!!!

Mid-morning snack - was a small baked sweet potato (the orange ones). It was really good and felt like I had a sweet treat!! And water!!

Lunchtime - I DID 45 CRAZY MINUTES of KICKBOXING!! I was breathing so felt great. My arms were burning with the barrage of punches thrown. The instructor did a lot of arm work today so it was all good!!

Lunch was steamed broccoli and a broiled chicken breast, water!!

Dinner was a green salad with cubed chicken breast!! WATER!!!

So overall, an awesome day!!!
Day 1 down, 29 to go!!!! I'm really giving it all I've got!!

until next time...

Joania it's like the 5k race all over again. You can see the finish line and you are sprinting towards it. You go girl. Thanks for being such an inspiration to me.

Your goals are hard-core. I know you can reach it. I hope to have as much faith in myself as you have in yourself~

Go Jo! You can do it! Go Jo! You can do it... I am doing the cheer dance for you. (I fell off the wagon and got under the wheels) but I am calling it "active rest".
I need all my focus and energy to CHEER FOR YOU!
