Day 8 of 21

01d029c589f770641285b2f17ace33ac0ea631fd15Day 8 was a very busy day: tons of meetings, lots of work to finish up before training, and David had class late so I knew I was on my own. I was also dreading Plyo Fix Extreme by myself since I struggled so much the previous week. I planned out my meals for the week on Sunday, prepped my food for work, and was determined to kick butt this week in order to be ready for the last of my cruise shopping on Saturday with my mom and sister. Lots of repeats food wise today in order to not to be wasteful and save on my weekly shopping budget by bulk cooking.

Workout: Plyo Day!!! Last week I was still recovering from the flu and really struggled with the workout, having to modify a majority of the moves or pause during the 30 second intervals. I had several coughing fits and was worried that the workouts might be above my current level of fitness. Well I’m glad to report I was wrong! I had to workout alone because David had a late night class; I was worried I wouldn’t push myself, but I knew I had to see if I could really do this extreme workout. I didn’t modify a single move, except the bonus round, and I made it through a full 30 seconds of each move. I will admit that I may not have kept pa01c83d36ce46ab954e324613d4907769ab142b907ace with Autumn the entire time, but I focused on perfect form and exploding into each jump. I think Plyo went from my least to most favorite extreme workout. I felt so strong and accomplished by the end of the 30 minutes that I was sad to reach the cool down!!! ¬†Zoey and Lexi kept me company the whole workout and gave me kisses during the breaks for encouragement. Lexi even brought me all three stuffed dragons in an attempt to kill me during the squat jumps!! Note to self for week 3: hide all the dog toys before attempting Plyo! David caught up on the workout on Tuesday morning and also saw large improvements in his jump height and ability to keep up with Autum. He really liked this workout which makes both of us excited for our next workout challenge: Insanity Max 30!
