My feet are tired?

Hey guys!!! I want to say thank you to everyone for the input on the tanning and for the encouragement. You guys bring me up when i’m down!!!!

I decided to go with Dream Tan. I am picking up my suit on Thursday, and will post pictures. 🙂

Workout today:
Boxing(another KILLER workout). Steve(instructor) made me do extra sets of everything again. Example of 1 combo we did: 11 hard hooks, 5 pushups, 20 mountain climbers….i did 20 sets(i think i coudn’t count he was counting for me) of that back to back NO rest. That was just one of probably 8 combos we did. Seriously the best class EVER. I wish you all could try it so much fun. After I left the class and was walking upstairs to the weight room, my actual feet were tired. Taking steps was hard because my feet didn’t even want to point and flex(or whatever movement they do when we walk). I was a sweaty mess, but still had more to do. Back and biceps was my game today. Here is the workout..4 sets each:
-Chin-ups(4 sets of 2 with negatives….i’m weak i am working my way up to doing 10. That is one of my goals but stay tuned for the rest of those…..)
-Lat Pulldowns superset with Seated Rows
-T-Bar Rows superset with Dumbbell curls
(at this point i was seriously depleted of any and all energy…but alas i pushed forward to finish the workout. it was seriously rough though…)
-Straight Arm Pulldowns superset with Cable Hammer Curls

Instead of doing my cardio right after that, i knew i had to get some food in me to replenish my energy. I ate and then headed back to the gym and did 45 minutes on the arc trainer. Here is today’s food:

1: 1 egg, 1 cup egg whites, some cherries
2: 5 oz. chicken, 1/2c brown rice, red bell pepper, baby carrots
3: ezekiel bread with 1 TBSP almond butter
4: salad with : spring mix, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 roma tomato, 3 oz chicken, 4 TBSP fresh pico de gallo, red onions
5: ezekiel bread with 1 TBSP almond butter
6: 1c. spinach, 1c. egg whites, 1/2c. wheat bran with 1/2 TBSP almond butter and 1/2 banana

I ate the wheat bran like i would eat oats….after reading Pauline Nordin’s post, I just had to try it. If this is true, life just became absolutely more amazing than it already is. I looked it up and some articles came up but nothing solid. I believe Pauline though, have you SEEN that girl?! I’ll take her advice over any columnist 🙂

Stay tuned for a post about my goals after this competition is over. (i am also going to be doing FitnessAmerica on August 22nd, but will post my goals after July 18th NPC show.)

11 days!!!!
