Today I had my body fat assessed by Misty - 2 weeks since the last measurement and 4 weeks since starting my new training program. I am happy to report that things are still moving in the right direction. I was down another 1%. I started out at 25.5 % a month ago and today I measured 22.4% body fat. That's great. I still have a lot of work to do, but I feel more motivated than ever.
Since I am 37, I guess according to this chart, that puts me in the "Slim (Health)" category. :)
Yesterday I had another great day of training. We went to the gym late in the morning and after a brief warm up, I spent a little over an hour doing my weights: shoulders and abs. After that I did my interval run on treadmill, similar to the last few weeks. I ran a total of 4.02 miles in 42 minutes, alternating sprints of up to 7.5 mph with "easier" pace of 5.7 - 6.0 mph and a walking cool down.
Today, after I finished my body assessment with Misty, I got busy with (what has become) one of my favorite workouts of the week: back and biceps. I started out with pull-ups, and with my husband's help, I was able to do 4 sets of 10. Pull-ups are killers. They're a whole-body workout, if you ask me.
When I finished with my strength training, I went upstairs to do some cardio. I spent 40 minutes on a stair machine, followed by 20 minutes (2 miles) on a treadmill. I was so tired by the time we got home from the gym that I took a short nap before the kids came home from school. I never nap, but I felt like I needed it today. Now I'm feeling wide awake at 11:30 pm - not ideal, especially since I have a leg workout and Muscle Fusion X tomorrow. I'd better try to get some sleep!
