Day 352 on the Journey!!
Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Let's start with yesterday. I went home and I did my Focus T25 Rip T' Circuit video!! I also gave my utterly best performance with some of the moves so
Not only that but Dane (my husband) was with me in the room as I exercised and so when it came time for my psuh-ups I asked him how along he thought it would take me to do 25 push-ups and he said 3 minutes. In my mind I just chuckled and said long gone are those days.
So anyway I clicked play on my push-up song and got down to business. So there I was expecting to reach muscle fatigue by 10-12 push-ups for my first set which is my usual average but did that happen NOPE!!! I pushed all the way to 17 push-ups before I had to rest (My new record)!!! Not only that but I finished ALL my push-ups in 1 minute and 20 seconds YES 1 MINUTE and 20 SECONDS!!! 25 WHOLE seconds lower than my previous record.
I was SOOOO proud of me and Dane was proud of me too. He said "You're getting so fit" and I never though 4 little words could impact me so. I was on cloud nine.
Now today I woke up this morning and did Focus T25 and gave another stellar performance!! Then it came time for my push-ups. I went into these thinking there is no way I'm going to do as well as yesterday because it's only my competetive, over-achiever nature that led to such
results yesterday. So of course I started and my first set was 16 push-ups AGAIN (1 less than yesterday but eh) and I finished all 25 in 1 minute and 30 seconds which though higher than yesterday is still 15 seconds less than my previous average!!
I tell you folks, these results are like a drug!! I am soooooooooooo motivated to continue pushing just to see how far I can actually go!! It's so true that:
Thank you all for your support.
