The Tough Mudder is quickly approaching! About two months to go! Eeep.
Time to really hit the training hard. This morning I went to the gym to do my new circuit - HOLY MOLY. Here it is:
20 bodyweight squats
10 jump squats
20 alt. lunges
10 jumping junges
20 kettle bell swings
WHOA. But a really neat thing that happened today was that one of the trainers was in with another client, and they were close to where I was doing my stuff. She gave me a variation on the burpee called the "Crossfit Burpee." When you go down to do the squat thrust, you put your chest immediately to the ground, and when you come up, add a jump at the end. No rest in between them. WOW. So I did a few of them and boy did it make me work! But on my way out, she gave me a thumbs up. Woot!
Got some new vitamins over the weekend. I'm like a kid and prefer chewable vitamins over the giant capsules. So I now have chewable calcium and gummy Omega-3. I have been taking fish oil/Omega-3 for a while now, and it has made a big difference in my hair (I don't know what else, I can just see how it affected my hair). It's thicker, shinier, and looks much healthier. Of course, this might be my diet and workouts, too, but the Omega-3 is good for me anyway.
I'm getting ready to head out for a facial. My skin seriously needs it today. The last month has been so stressful with the painting and everything - my poor skin is tired of me touching it out of stress habit! Then it's off to look for some new workout gear. Yahoo! I know I've written this before, but it's so funny how I am more excited to get new gym clothes than any other kind of clothes! (Almost, it depends on my mood. I really love buying sandals when the weather is warm.)
Off to get ready... have a super day!
