I'M BAAACK! | Day One | Body Rock TV

I'll admit, I have fallen off the horse the past two weeks. I have worked out here and there doing my Biggest Loser Cardio Max and a little bit of dancing but nothing too serious and I definitely haven't been giving it my all. My food intake has been almost the same but I have slipped here and there for some pizza and fried foods... Which left me regretting it later BUT something has hit me

I am in a group on FB and a friend found this website called Body Rock TV by Zuzana. After looking through it in the middle of the night and seeing this lady's workouts AND her body (although, I don't intend on getting that muscular but she sure is nice to look at, not gonna lie!), it just hit me... I need to get up, get back to working out. I have almost lost 20 pounds already, am I really going to stop now when I am almost HALF WAY to my goal?

Yesterday, I was in my group and the same friend who found this website posted that she was going to do one of Zuzana's workouts and asked who was in. I took a look at the work out, read the blog and replied, "I'm in!" That was that. Once I vowed to my girls that I was going to do it, I HAD to do it. (It's nice having such a great support system!)

I woke up this morning, knowing what I had to do, giving me no excuses not to. After running a few errands and cleaning up our house, it was time.

After watching the video, I knew it was going to be intense, but I didn't know exactly HOW intense! But, I got through it. Here are my times.

1. Climber's lunges: 50 reps in 4:55
I was out of breath ALREADY BEFORE I was even finished doing these. When I was done and stood up, I was already sweating!

2. Pike Jumps: 100 reps in 2:44
Whew! I took a break at 50 but then, kept going and I thought I was going to end up falling over and fainting. Still sweating!

3. Abs:
I think I did these wrong in reps. I did both sides counting that as one rep. (As in: bring legs up in the center, bent knees, went to the right, extended legs, came back to center, extended legs in center, bent knees, went to the left, extended legs, came back to center, went down: one.)
Doing it that way I did 50 reps in 7:09

But, after I realized how long it took me, I went back and read: "Raise your legs back up. Now bend your knees, rotate your lower body towards one side and extend your legs. Reverse the movement and get back to the starting position. This counts as 1 rep."
So, does that mean I did 100 reps in 7:09?

Either way, I did them!

4. Leg Switch: 50 reps in 2:12, break, 30 reps in 1:41, done
This one was rough for me. I couldn't get them all in but I got as much as I could in!

How did I feel after the entire thing? LIKE JELLO! And absolutely amazing! I'm back, I'm back, I'm back.

It felt sooo good and I am so thankful to have come across this site! Great workouts, a great instructor AND it's FREE! =D So, get your booties up and ROCK YOUR BODY! =D
