Hey Sparkies,

In my last blog I declared that this week would be all about getting back up, all about getting back in control and praise God I've made great strides in doing so!!! Now starting with Monday evening I did do the two skipped workouts from last week that I said I was going to do!! emoticon me!! emoticon Really I think what helped me more than anything to do them both was the fact that I had said that I would. I was tempted after finishing the first one to quit but I said no I said I'd do two so I did!! I ended up doing Focus T25 Speed 2.0 and the Stretch video. I REALLLLLYY wanted to kill it with the Speed 2.0 but unfortunately I only nailed it which I guess is good enough. I also did my push-ups and for reasons unknown to me they were somewhat of a struggle. I think my longest set was 8 or 10 which was a big drop from the 16 and 17 of last week. I got them done though and that's what counted.

Yesterday I didn't wake up in the morning for my exercise and let me declare from now that I didn't do it today either. I don't know what's wrong with me. I fear I've fallen too comfortably into the mold of my Plan B of doing it in the evening. Unfortunately it's a Plan B for a reason so when I have to do my workouts in the evening it means that dinner is later, I have less time to spend with my DH and also like what happened yesterday I am limited in the amount of time that I can devote to actually working out. I got home later than I wanted to yesterday and so I could only do my Rip't Circuit video even though I wanted to do both it and the Stretch video to totally get rid of my backlog. I only did the Rip't Circuit though but I was comforted by the fact that I KILLED IT!!! I TOTALLY DECIMATED IT!! It was my best effort for the whole phase which was only befitting since it was my last time doing it since I FINISHED the BETA PHASE!! emoticon Yep I have thus far completed two phases of Focus T25. There was no celebrations with my push-ups though because again they were a struggle. My arms just felt super sore, got them done though so emoticon

Now today more specifically this morning was to be the beginning of the Gamma phase of Focus T25 but as stated above that didn't happen so this evening it is. To be honest I'm scared out of my wits. I previewed the first video on the calendar and it was Speed 3.0. Now folks this video looks like Speed 2.0 (which I hadn't fully mastered from the Beta phase) on STEROIDS and I am not exaggerating!! Not only that but many of the moves were reminiscent of Insanity. Now if this was right after I'd finished Insanity and was at what I considered the height of my fitness, I'd be all excited and nonchalant but as it is I really don't think I'm there fitness-wise so there's more trepidation than excitement. However I am going to


and I will not be limited. I'll tell you all how it went tomorrow.

And in other news, on the food front, I have been KILLING it!! Both Monday and today I tracked EVERYTHING and stayed within my calorie range. emoticon To be honest it's a team challenge that I'm a part of that has really kept me accountable and it really couldn't have come at a better time. So here's to today following suit!! Here's to discipline!!

Thanks as usual for your time. emoticon emoticon

    Girl, I wish I was as physically fit as you are! I can barely get through 2 miles of a Leslie Sansone video... LOL I have no muscles or anything under all this fat and skin. I need to start doing strength training or my weight loss will be super sluggish. Be warned, I will approach you when I need harder exercises, whenever that may be, even if it's just for you to tell me which video to buy next.
