The start of another week!

"Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill."  Mohammed Ali 

Workout 1 - 30 day shred dvd - levels 1, 2 and 3! Replaced some cardio segments and core circuits with 30 mins of treadmill running and one walking interval with 6.6 lb. dumbbells with shoulder raises, bicep curls and boxing drills with walking.  Also I did extra push ups during the cool down segments and core segments.  My weights for all 3 levels of the shred where 11 lb. and 6.6 lb. dumbbells.  

Total time - 82.32 mins 
Calories burned -  710 
HR - Avg. - 71%, Zone 3, Max - 85% Zone 4 
Pushups - 110  
Standard - 30 reps 
Diamond - 20 reps 
Dive bombers - 20 reps - PR - personal record!
Inch worm/walking push ups - 20 reps 
Traveling push ups - 20 reps 

Fitness note - Today was my first time to try doing all 3 levels in one day. I really liked the challenge! I also liked replacing some of the cardio segments with treadmill intervals and extra push ups. This is definitely something I will be doing again. For my running  half way through I put on my turbo jam weighted gloves and really enjoyed the extra intensity it gave me during my run. Overall, my intensity was lower today as my leg is still hurting a bit, but I still worked hard and got a great burn out of it! 

Workout 2 - Butts and Guts dvd - warmup followed by floor glut work with ankle weights and core work. 

Total time - 39.42 
Calories burned - 140 
HR - Avg. 51% Zone 1, Max 66% Zone 2 
Crunches - 110 crunches, situps, v-ups and oblique work with 11 lb dumbbell. 70 reps with no weight.  Total for the day - 180
Fitness note -  I just love this dvd. Always a favorite of mine. The floor and core work does not burn as many calories as the standing work but what a wonderful challenge it is, especially with the ankle weights. 

Totals for the day - 
Total time - 121.74
Calories burned - 850 
Caloric deficit - 650. 
Daily note - I feel really good....and hungry..LOL!

Just a short note to let you know that you know that your Weight Loss Cheerleader ( ME!) is back from vacation. Looks like you got it back after being so sick. Happy to see that - I was worried about you GIRL!

Keep it moving over there - you will be using that vacation wardrobe really soon and you want to look your best. I know you will!

Thanks for the motivation!

Hey Jen, thanks for stopping by my blog. You do sooooooooo much!! I can see that you definitely have the time, but even so alot of people have free time that they do not choose to use for exercise. You amaze me. Now, you can email me privately if you need to, or post it on your blog. I am curious about why you left Texas to be in Russia. I am in east Texas, and it is so hot right now. Keep up the good work. I don't understand everything you are doing, but it is definitely alot.

I love these workouts! I am definitely motivated to start keeping track of my stats during my off-season. So far, I only track weight lifted and reps and sets; but the way you track makes sense! You can really see your progress. And, are KICKING IT!! :) Love ya!
