The TRX talk and many food pics!

I have not been blogging my daily results here as I normally do. Ever since Michaela's first birthday which was April 4th, I  have been posting my food pics on FB but I have failed to post my normal blog results.

Now for the TRX talk.....

OK,  here is the deal. When I first made the challenge on April 1st to complete 12, 45 min TRX sessions this month I think I might have been slightly crazy. I have completed about 4 sessions, NONE of which have been 45 mins long.  This month will be one in which I do not meet the goals I set for myself and I am ok with this. In terms of weight loss I am doing fantastic, it is just the ST that  I am falling behind on. I will continue the challenge as planned BUT with one big exception. My TRX sessions will not be for any particular length of time. If I get in my 3 sets of 15 reps per exercise along with some push ups and so on, then that will count as one session. I will not be going for time as I am finding out a quick 20 mins on this thing and my back muscles are burning! Maybe next month I will aim for more but as of now, I need to ease into my workouts on this thing. It really is challenging! The pushups alone will kill your chest.....in the best possible way.

In the past 2 days I have done 217 push ups so I am pretty sore so I am taking today OFF!!! I have a long run on saturday as part of my training for my next race...May 7th, and I do not want to be so sore it affects my run.

Now onto food....

Here is a look at the food I have been eating.  I will work hard to get back to blogging my daily results, but for now, here is a look at what was on my plate these past few days.........

As usual everything looks wonderful! I'm sure you will work up to the 45 minute sessions in due time! Until then just do what you can so you don't injure yourself and you'll be good to go!

You may have posted this elsewhere, so I'm sorry if this is redundant, but what do you usually put in your smoothies?

Hey I was wondering how you drink your cranberry juice.I bought this the other day and it is so strong!I tried to water it down but that actually made it worse because it created more of it.hee hee:)So do you put anything in this or just down it really fast and also how much of it do you drink in the morning?
