Jillian Kicks My Butt - Week 7 - Thursday

Minimal rest between exercises and sets.

pull/chin up 5x3xbodyweight - 5 actual, 10 negatives.
plank 5x45s

barbell hang clean & press 3x5x40
double crunch 3x8

dumbbell stationary lunge 3x5x25 per side
walking push up 3x8

Biggest Loser cardio fun - 40 minutes and 226 calories. I love Bob Harper, really, I do, but I'm getting sick of him, too. Not as much as Jillian though. Still, I am looking forward to the end of this rotation.

Okay, I ate three tiny Easter candies last night after blogging. I don't even know what these things are. Chocolate, I can say for sure. Not enough to affect anything, but I did want to be honest.

I'm all a-squee this afternoon because of a great score on Amazon for fitness stuff. One of my stalkees, jennincat on Spark (she also has a great site blogged about her calipers for body fat testing and noted that Amazon has them for $5.91 (regularly $19.99). With shipping, less than $11. But wait! I still have a balance from my gift cards. So, I got body fat calipers for free! Yay! I'm dreading, I mean excited to get them! I'll have to have my husband do the measurements at first, for the 7 site test, while I practice getting the 3 site test down. There was a time when I wouldn't dream of letting him play with my fat. I still have quite the belly, which has always been my "ick" spot, but the idea of him touching my stomach doesn't bother me. I don't care if he sees my fat now - soon it will be gone. Okay, maybe not soon, but sometime within the next year, I should be able to get my body fat down to a more appealing level.

Speaking of unappealing - have you ever looked at your stomach while in plank position? OMG!!!!!! It's fascinatingly disturbing. I should take a picture next time so I can do comparisons as I lose the rest of this fat. It just hangs there, bumpy and shaped like an squarish hour glass. Focusing on it helps me stay in plank longer LOL

8:30 AM - apple & cottage cheese

9:50 AM - banana; I really needed something between my weights and cardio - I was shaky.

I hate, hate, hate planks! If you think your stomach is disturbing, you ought to see mine! That is the one part of my body I'm dreading seeing once I get down to my goal weight. I was more self-conscious of my stomach at that weight than I am now because it's just a wrinkly, jiggly mess! :(

5 pull-ups?! Look at you go!! Awesome!! :)
Don't worry too much about the fat callipers- I had a complete stranger pinch my fat for the bootcamp I was in. Pretty quick, just hurt like a mofo!! Ever try to pinch the fat on your quad?! ooowww!!
