One month tomorrow!!

Thanks to everyone for your reassuring words yesterday. I had a great phone conversation with a dear friend today and she recommended I have a heart-to-heart with my client to get to a resolution that we can both be happy with. I can't keep going at this pace, that is for sure. I'll have that talk with her on Friday. Say prayers for me that it goes well for all concerned.

That being said, I have actually been very productive over the past few days. My workouts have been hardcore, although today I had a really hard time with the ab workout Tony prescribed. It started out with a 25 rep set of crunches, followed by 3 35-rep sets. Then 3 sets of 25 trunk and curls, then 2 sets of 25 bicycles, then 2 sets of 25 single leg planks (couldn't even do these - so I just did 2 25-second regular planks). Do I need to go on? I was DYING. The only thing good about it was that I was lying down.

Anyway, I still pushed out a killer 12 minute final run. 2 minutes at 4.5 mph, 4 minutes at 5.o mph, 4 minutes at 5.5, 1 minute at 6.0 mph and the last minute in 15 second intervals - 6.5, 7.0, 7.5 and 8.0. I was so tired (ovulating???) but overall, I feel good about the workout.

Biggest news? Tomorrow is one month with Tony. I have really committed to this process, laid a strong foundation, LOST TEN POUNDS, and it is only the beginning. I am thrilled, THRILLED with my progress so far, and can't wait to see what the next month will bring!

Love to all of you!

YOU LOST 10 POUNDS IN ONE MONTH??!!?? Um, yeah, I'd call that SUCCESS!!!!

THAT IS AWESOME!! You are kickin' butt and takin' names, girlie!

The first Ab workout I did from Tony I HATED IT. H.A.T.E.D I.T. I felt NOTHING and the exercises seemed ridiculous to me. NOW? I've done an about-face. I had an Ab Crit yesterday - oh yeah, kicked my butt! Abs are S.O.R.E. today. LOVE IT!

Hugs girlie! We love you!
