Another week, another progress report. I seriously can NOT get over the fact that in NINE more workouts, I have completed a program 110%. Something I will admit, I have never done before.
YES- All 12 that I completed) — I’ve never had some sort of cheat. A glass of wine, wings, pizza…I’m not perfect and I sure as hell am not going to pretend to be.
So let me start by saying this. There is no such thing as perfect and it’s perfectly okay to have cravings, give in a little bit, practice the 80/20 rule. But I NEEDED to prove to myself I could do this program 110%. The way it was designed so I could get maximum results.
✔️I’ve been SOBER for 20 days. And if you know me, wine and champagne is my weekend go to.
✔️I have portioned EVERYTHING out with the containers and haven’t cheated once.
✔️ I have meal planned for EVERY WEEK and followed it to a T.
✔️ I’ve eaten out several times and didn’t give into any temptations.
✔️ I haven’t missed a workout (even when my body was unbelievably sore) and incorporated every ab workout on the days they were called for.
✔️I’ve realized the importance of nutrition and Shakeology even more than I did before.
✔️ My mindset is so strong and I’ve created a habit I will continue beyond Day 30.
✔️ I can help my challengers in a way I haven’t before.
WORKOUTS WEEK THREE:
Day 15: MMA Power & Core Kinetics. 47 minutes and the next step up from MMA Shred. Holy moly– this one challenged me a lot. You’re adding in some new moves and also incorporating the moves you did in other workouts. My lower back and hips were on FIRE. 3 minute rounds still and that cardio spike in between. Holy schmmmmoly. Such a great burn. THEN you add on that 15 minute burner of an ab workout 😉
Day 16: Dynamic Strength and 5 Minute Core on the Floor. Back to that 47 minute workout. I noticed that I was able to do the moves A LOT better this time around. Some moves I was able to get up on my toes for, others still needed to be modified, but I am noticing A HUGE difference in the strength department for sure. That 5 Min Core workout though? WHAT THE HECK?! You’re on your forearms for 5 minutes straight (shoulder BURNER) doing planks, side planks, etc. It’s pretty insane.
Day 17: MMA Power & Core Kinetics. Yep, still hurt this day too HAHA. But I noticed myself actually enjoying it more this time around.
Day 18: Power Sculpt. I am definitely getting BETTER at this one. But it’s still rough. Booty burner, arm burner, ab burner, EVERYTHING. Only 35 minutes– but I won’t lie, I loved IT. It makes you work. The 5 Minute Ab Burner again– yep. I made it 30 seconds longer this time. I WILL make it to the 5 minute mark!
Day 19: MMA Plyo. NEW WORKOUT ALERT. And wow. This one takes every move you’ve everrrrrrr done and combines it into 47 minutes. Kicking, punching, knees, hooks, uppercuts, superman punches. It’s insane. I am STILL sore from this one as I sit here typing it out haha. You’ll see in the video below, it was pretty challenging for me. BUT I will say that it’s on the schedule twice this week so it can only get better from there…. right?!
Day 20: Dynamic Strength again. I did ONE Sphinx Blaster on my toes. But it wasn’t pretty. SO obviously I still need some work in the strength department. I’ll get there!
Day 21: Active Recovery. Alas. A day to take it back a notch and reset. You go through the moves slowly & do a lot of stretching. DEFINITELY needed that big time.
