Week 15 Day 3

I have unfortunately deleted my video from day 3 off of my cell phone. Didn't realize that I hadn't loaded it to YouTube yet. Oops. Oh well.

 I think of my assessment of my workout on Saturday is...

Oh my word I was exhausted!!

I did total body, but honestly I had so little in the "tank". I was ready for the work out to be over.

Really hoping that that doesn't happen to me again. Unfortunately, for week 16 I will be working out Thursday through Saturday again. Definitely need to build my endurance.

Week 15 Day 2

The second day of going to the gym was pretty good.

I worked legs. Was pretty happy with it. Did 120 weighted squats. I did half of them with two 15 pound weights standing on the floor and the other half with a 25 pound kettlebell on a Bosu ball.

The squat challenge has been great, but its almost over so I'm already anticipating what I will do next. 

I found this beginner chart that gives me the squats I currently do on a daily basis. The end of this challenge only takes me up to 150 squats by day 30. The new one that I found yesterday but I am going to start on October 1st will take me up to 250 squats by day 30.

There is also this one that will give me variations that I can do on a daily basis. I was thinking about doing both of them.

I didn't know what each of these squats actually meant, but there is a link that I go to to teach me each one.

Anyway, here's my blog from that workout.

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 

I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.

I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area and see what I can find.

Anyway, here is my vlog from after my workout. I did arms today. Feels great to get to the gym this morning after not being able to go on Monday. Will go on Friday and Saturday as well. By Saturday after my workout I'm going to be so tired. 3 days of hitting the gym in a row will be a first for me. I am sure I'll love it and hate it at the same time.

Before I go I'm going to update you on the squat challenge I've been doing. Aside from the one day I missed a week ago because I completely forgot I have been going strong. This morning I did Day 21's 115 weighted squats at the gym. I talked about it a little bit in my video above, but let me tell you I am a loving doing squats everyday. It's challenging, but so worth the results. I have seen such a major difference in my legs and glutes.
