I survived! I survived! I have made it through 2 weeks of this high intensity, cardio pumping, resistance program! WOO-HOO!
I’m fitter than I thought I was and getting fitter! Now, if I could only do pullups . . . well, that’s another program.
Every 2 weeks I get to retake my Fit Test and I did that today with some amazing gains! Here is the comparison from my preliminary Fit Test before starting the program and 2 weeks in:
Comparison: Prelim Today
Switch Kicks – 65 74
Power Jacks – 50 60
Power Knees – 106 114
Power Jumps – 39 52
Globe Jumps – 8 11
Suicide Jumps – 12 16
Pushup Jacks – 14 18
Low Plank Obliques – 44 82
As you can see, pushups are my weak point. I hope to continue to see improvement in that area. Whether after numbers like these, I’ll see such significant gains at the end of the first month and thereafter, who knows. I hope to keep getting stronger and seeing higher numbers.
I’m not too worried about weight loss, but I’d love to see a decrease in my body fat. The way I’ve been going on the weekends with the splurging though, I don’t expect it. I really need to start telling my husband “No!” when he wants fast food. He can have it, but I need to stay on track through the weekends. I’ve let myself slide way too much! During the week I’m perfect, then I totally undo it on the weekend.
Here’s to more improvement and better willpower with food for the rest of this rotation!
