You Can Go Hard Or You Can Go Home

Ah, Sunday. A day that I try not to leave the house if at all possible. But it also means that tomorrow is back to work...

I slept in pretty late today. I sat around on my butt for a while watching SVU. I know there is a "marathon" on every single weekend, but I still have to watch. :) After a while, I decided that it was time to get off the big ole booty and get my sweat on.

This week I started week two of the SparkPeople 5KYourWay Plan. I did my three days of it last week and it was starting to get a little easier to get through the minutes of running. Now granted, I'm not going fast at all. It's probably a normal person's walk. But it's a step in the right direction for me.

This week called for 3 minutes walking, 1.5 minutes running. Repeat 5 times, for 6 times total. I did pretty good... Until the fifth run. I made it about 1 minute and 5 seconds before I had to stop running and bring the speed down. I probably could have made it through those last 25 second in the fifth interval, but I didn't. Womp womp.  I'm not saying that it wasn't hard. But I was pushing through it.

Definitely not the best time, but I'm getting there!
After I got off the treadmill and caught my breath for a minute, I did this workout that I found on Pinterest today. It was good and hard (that's what she said, what's up Mama Laughlin). I did two sets of the basketball jump squats, the Russian twist, and the sit n' reach. It was hard and I had to modify, but I felt really good after I did it.

Right now P and I have some dinners for this week in the crockpot. So I am hoping that I can stay on track and keep workin' it.

And just for an extra dose of cute to end this post, I'll leave you with this.
