The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

Better now

I finally finished my workout, minus the SS cardio. Just don't have it in me today. I will spend all day tomorrow at a water park chasing my children around who can't swim so I will get plenty of cardio there. I did do my 3 "required" sessions this week already though! And if we are counting my kettlebell workouts as HIIT then I did 1 extra session there.

After my workout was finally finished I made my protein shake and put blueberries in it. I felt instantly better after that. So I guess I need to up my carbs a bit. Blueberries in the protein shake it quite yummy so I guess I can manage! ;P

I completed week 2 of the 100 push-ups program today. I did every one of them I was supposed to. I probably should have waited until tomorrow or Sunday to do my exhaustion test for next week but I knew my weekend was going to be crazy and I would likely not have the energy to do a good job. So, although doing the exhaustion test 4 hours after my workout was not ideal, I was still very happy with my numbers. I did 26 push-ups. I have NEVER done that many push-ups at once before!!! So that put me, BARELY, into the third column. The reps in that column for next week are really intimidating!!! But I am excited. I still haven't tried any big girl push ups yet. I think I will wait until I do my monthly check in for the Open Challenge.

Food will be a bit challenging this weekend. My husband's company is throwing their summer party and suppling food. Chances are it will be bbq style foods; burger, dogs, etc. If I stay with meat items only I should be fine. Hopefully they will have salads and fruit as well. I am packing some snacks but those are mostly for my children since they have some food restrictions! I will sneak in some nuts and maybe some pepperoni crisps. I am also planning on mixing up some coconut oil bark. I should be able to find a bucket of ice to put it in to harden it up.
