- Globe Jumps: 5
- Suicide Jumps: 5

I was literally dripping sweat afterwards, which was kind of nice. At least I knew I was doing something for sure.
I’m really hoping that I will actually wake up early tomorrow so I can get in the next workout before work. I think that will help me to actually make it through this program, if I can have my evenings open to do other things.
Day 2 (Tuesday)
Welp, I didn’t wake up at 6 like I had planned on. Which meant I had to do the Plyometric Cardio Circuit thing after our sand volleyball game.
It was brutal. I don’t know if I actually made it all the way through every workout set, but I did my best.
I was literally dripping sweat onto the kitchen floor (cause that has the most space).
I finished it though.
Day 3 (Wednesday)
ARGH! Once again, woke up late. I do love my snooze button.
I did today’s workout right after we got home from work. It was also brutal. I’m pretty sure they will all be like that.
Getting it done so early meant that I had time to make some light food to replenish my body, shower and watch a movie before my 9 p.m. bedtime.
I am freaking determined to wake up at 6 tomorrow to get my workout done before work!
Day 4 (Thursday)
I did it! I woke up early! Our…health coach (?) reminded me to try placing my phone, aka alarm, across the room which totally did the trick.
It was a cardio recovery day, which basically meant long slow holds of different moves.
I thought I would die during what felt like a 5 minute squat hold. I mean, in reality I think it was 16 seconds, but it felt waaaaaay longer.
I also did not sweat quiiite as much.
Day 5 (Friday)
Once again, I woke up early!! Today was a full cardio day and it. was. awful.
Ugh. Oh my gosh. I don’t think I made it completely through any workout section, I could only do a little bit of each of them.
I wasn’t really sweating much though, until the very very end.
For some reason, during the last stretch time, aaaalllll my sweat decides it’s time to leave and it just comes pouring out.
I’m feeling pretty good though.
Day 6 (Saturday)
I had some fun plans lined up for the day so I was planning on waking up early and getting my last workout of the week done around 8. Instead, I slept in a little bit longer because I figured I would have time in the evening.
Turns out, plans got switched around that afternoon and I knew I wouldn’t have time in the evening so I ended up doing this workout around 3, almost right after we had lunch.
The food had settled a bit by then so I felt pretty comfortable.
I was so PUMPED!! Normally during the warm-up section, I make it through the jogging portion okay, but have to stop halfway through the jumping jacks.
Today I made it all the way through the jogging, the jumping jacks, AND the…heisman thing?
I WAS SO EXCITED!!
The rest of the workout went about the same though, touch and go, kind of did what I could while still managing to breath.
Still ended up very very sweaty in the end.
Sunday is a rest day, so I went for a nice long 6 mile walk to just stay active.
Week 1 Results
- Weight 8/20 / 8/27: 161.0 / 160.0
- % Muscle 8/20 / 8/27: 24.8 / 25.3
- % Body Fat 8/20 / 8/27: 41.7 / 40.8
Progress was made all across the board.
I felt pretty good all week. I wasn’t as sore as I have been in the past trying this program.
I feel like my legs are much, much stronger!
All in all, I look forward to next week. I’m curious to see what happens and how I progress during the second week.
Also, I am really not the most attractive sweaty person. That is not really part of my charm. 🙂 You’re welcome.
