Feeling Revived!

i have to admit, these past 2 weeks I have felt extremely lethargic and low energy. With what life has thrown my way, I have not been able to stick to my goals. This is the first time in years that I haven't followed through with my word. I understand life can get in the way and get you off track. The longer you wait to jump back on, the harder it may get. So finally I forced myself to make some time for me. This morning I went in my back yard and had one of the BEST workouts I have had in a long time. Because it had been weeks since I've been consistent in my training I was surprised that I had the strength to do this fun workout.

My weight for the past week has been 111 pounds and I'm still exclusively breastfeeding. The only thing I can say I have really been doing right, is eating super super clean. I never let myself go hungry and I'm snacking all the time! I haven't been this light for 8 years. So I thought for sure I wouldn't have the strength to even work with a bell heavier than the 12kg. So here it goes!

TURKISH GET UP 12 kg 2-3 on each side
DOUBLE FRONT SQUATS 2 12KG'S 5 reps (very surprised I could do this)
CLEAN AND PRESS 12KG'S 5 on each side
SWINGS 20KG 15reps

Completed 3 sets

JUMP ROPE 1 min
SNATCHES 12kg 1 min
SWINGS 20KG 30 sec

Completed 3 sets with 1 minute rest in between each exercise

After this short, but intense, workout I feel like something has awoken inside of me. I feel REVIVED!!!! I'm ready to start working on those pistols now! I am able to get one on my right leg, but I want both legs to feel easy like they use to.

A good start to a beautiful weekend here in Sunny San Diego!!!

Impressive workout... especially for not feeling on top of your game. Intense! I like it.

Just to let you know, even if you weren't feeling at the top of your game, you still inspired me. Congrats on feeling revived!

Brandon,

Thank you. I rather have a short and intense workout, rather than a long and easy workout. Intensity is what gets my heart pumping.

Marisol,

So glad that I do inspire you. You did awesome the other day with the kettlebells. Can't wait to hear how your progress is going!
