I have been feeling pretty amazing lately…
Because of you, I have never been so inspired.
Because of my hard work, I have never seen so much progress.
The What’s Beautiful Competition has exposed me to some amazing female athletes, who are setting goals, and reaching them. Because of this I am finding myself feeling more organized, and pushing myself to my fullest potential.
The Livefit trainer has done this for me as well. Although, it is not customized to the individual, (the exercises were hard, intense actually,) but it has made things easy. With out this plan, I would have been totally lost not knowing what to do in the weight room, but instead every exercise and meal was laid out for me with directions and videos. I have been amazed with how much I have learned about lifting heavy, circuit training, heart rate, eating clean, macros, supplements, etc.
I now more than ever, want to become certified in personal training, and sports nutrition. (This is something I have thought about for a very long time, but now I am going to do it.)
I have inspired J and L – they both want to complete phases 2 and 3. ¬†So I have¬†decided to repeat Phases 2 and 3 of the Livefit trainer. This time I am going to focus a little closer on eating clean.
This week L and I hit the weight room and started the first week of phase 2. I have realized that this is going to be quite interesting. By repeating these phases I ¬†am getting the opportunity to really see my progress, because I am lifting heavier than ever. I am setting new PRs on most exercises. When I first started lifting I was using 5-10 lb dumbbells and a 20 lb bar, now I am using 15-20 lb dumbbells and 40 lb bar. I am much stronger then I use to be.
Another thing I am setting new PRs in is my running. Because of my new strength I am also running further and faster.
Also, because of the What’s Beautiful competition I am learning new things like how to use the TRX for planks and push ups. And because the What’s Beautiful competition is all about challenges – I will leave you with this challenge. How many push ups can you do in 1 minute?
See how many I can do by checking out my video on YouTube.
Good Luck on the challenge! And make sure you let me know how you do!
How many push ups can you do?
