We finished with 300 abs from my Beastmode Board. Here I am post work out. My shirt says "Work out Diva" because obviously I am one, I think. Diva Status most definitely. Anywho, I won this shirt during a Personally Fit monthly competition. This was from June's competition where each contestant entered to win a shirt or a 3 month free membership by attending 15 group exercises sessions. I attended 20 and I was out of the country on vacation for 10 days in June. Holler! NO EXCUSES! Obviously, I won the T-Shirt, not the free membership, womp womp.
I am win for win with my challenge- cheat-less, carb free for dinner, and I put in my work out this morning. Day one of three two a days this week. Last night for dinner I had a Jennie-O Turkey Patty over fresh spinach with sun dried tomatoes and fat free ranch dressing (single serving) 277 calories. Delish!
I picked up Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl at the bookstore last night. I read another great review yesterday, and I absolutely can't resist the attraction in an all consuming great read. After dinner, I curled up in a blanket and dove head first into my new book. Whoa, Ms. Flynn doesn't waste any time, by page ten I was hooked and couldn't put it down. The story line reaches off the page, grabs you by the eyeballs, and demands your attention. I had to force myself to put the book down at 10pm so I could get some sleep and put in a work out this morning. I'm sure I'll finish this one in no time at all.
This morning it was back to the gym to put in some more fat blasting work. I did another 35 minutes on the Elliptical, I'm beginning to feel chained to it. I'll most likely end up resenting the elliptical machine. True Story. There was a woman running in front of me on the treadmill and I kept thinking, "Jealous. Jealous, Jealous, Jealous. She is so lucky". Dang busted up hip. Just a few more days until I'm in the clear! Next, I did the following, which I made up, on the fly, right there by my little self.

Stretch Time- Ahhhhh. This morning's workout felt cleansing and amped me up for today. I feel energized and ready to boss lady this Wednesday. Tonight- Insanity at 337 Fit Club! Let me know if you want to come and I'll give you all the details! This is FREE, can't beat free! Here I am post- super sweat session.
This week is is light years away from last week's don't wants and disappointing weigh in. Proof that powering through your don't wants and down days will only make you feel more powerful. Empower yourself peeps, because you are awesome! I'm so happy I threw down a challenge. I'm looking forward to big loser results at the end of these 12 days! I'm inching closer to goal weight each and every day. I can smell it. It's dangling right there in front of my face, but just out of reach. Having come so far already, the want and need I feel to succeed, and prove to myself that I can reach my goal, is all consuming. The pride I feel is self-evident, but there's something deeper than pride going on here, reaching this goal feels like knocking down life long road blocks and uprooting old nasty insecurities. It's giving me the inner strength I need to take on the world and accomplish all of my goals in life. Absolutely anything I set my mind to, and guess what? I can! Decide to do something fabulous for yourself. You won't regret it! Here I am heading off to work this morning. Werking girl Wednesday! Half way there guys and gals! Keep swimming!
