Oh mylanta. Would you believe I am feeling sore from those weighted upper cuts from 2 days ago?
Yep. The sides of my back are sore as fuck. It feels like I did lat rows all day with 50 pound weights.
Don't even get me started on how my hamstrings and glutes feel. Or my midsection. You know, that part of my body that I despise with the fury of a thousand burning suns? Yeah.
I'm in some pain right now, people. I can't lie. I was talking to someone today that made a funny, and when I attempted to laugh, I done felt the soreness in my stomachs.
This Bootcamp works your midsection every single day. Today was no different. So umm, yay?
The schedule on the website said it was supposed to be cardio leg toning. What a bunch of baloney.
Instead, he decided to torture us with a full body workout today.
More skaters, more jump ropes, burpees (HATE), jump squats, sprints, running tires, mountain climbers (What is it with him & working the damn midsection????), high step ups, plank rows, roll-out crunches using that rollert thingy, kettlebell squats, wide squats, lunges, and crunches.
My.Sweet.Lord. George Harrison aint got nothin.
I was dripping sweat after 10 minutes. And that was just in the warm up. 321 calories torched.
The scale is still being somewhat of a douchebag this week. It can be frustrating as hell to know that you are working your ass off, sticking to eating whole, nutritious food, feeling sore in muscles that you didn't even know existed only to have the scale act like an asshole.
Go by how your clothes fit. Look how far you've come. Did you have muscles like that a year ago? Were you as strong 3 years ago as you are now? You're 20 pounds from goal, not 120 pounds. Think. Focus. Throw the scale out!
Listen, I know all that to be true, minus the last one. The reason I can't throw the scale out - at least not right now, or possibly ever - is that I know myself.
I know I would get too complacent, too full of myself (Snort!) and too willing to ride my own coattails.
So. Scale stays.
I have to trust in the process.
Gotta dig deep.
