But no one said training is easy. 😊A little sore from my weight and in session; but after being away 12,875 is good for me! The journey continues... 4:45 am gym sessions are hard to start but amazing once going!Got leg workout and HIIT done- I think my legs will be groaning tomorrow. Friday is my first gym challenge class. Wondering what I got myself into!!Finished my first team training class of my gym’s spring challenge. Inky 2 women in it- small class of 8 total - kicked my tail with lifting heavy and increasing reps but I made it and outlasted all the men in plank taps! Then crawled out the door...My favorite workout day because it’s farmwork that keeps you moving and it’s a good 90 minute workout. I had to move a good number of the flock to a different pasture, plus rake, shovel and dump hay/poo. With waning light I had to pick up the pace- torched a good 475 calories. Best part - a sheep trying to push through the gate to go home with me... lots of sheep nuzzles today!! 💕💕Had a good reminder about the importance of taking time for safety. A few reps after this photo I@decided ( stupidly) to shift my grip. I lost control of the bar and the hammerhead rests caught it. I had to limbo out from under but it beats the alternative. 😑 just minutes earlier I was getting irritated because I was taking so much time adjusting the safety bars. Whew!Morning workout raking leaves before the snow returns - good calorie burn for an hour. Now off to my volunteer shepherding for heritage sheep- 2 *more* hours of raking hay and manure- but sheep nuzzles from these guys when finished make it worth it. Minus the occasional head butt.😏This beautiful sunrise was my reward for pushing my sorry sleepy butt out of bed to hit the treadmill and weights at the gym at 5:15 am. The beautiful colors streaming in were gorgeous...My weight training took a bit of a hit between sick patients and deadlines, but I still made myself go to my team training class. Besides a PR with 40 lb kettlebell deadlifts, I had a little left in the tank to hit the bag a few times. Hooray!!My weekly Sunday creative workout and this time my trainers were “beasts”!😂. Torrential@rain for 2 days turned pasture and corral into mud holes- and the sheep weren’t having it- but food was on the other side!☺️ it’s one of my toughest workouts of my week - today I had 2 hours of raking, shoveling and mucking to do- 564 calories gone!starting a new intense training program and found the gym empty. I could lift heavy, grunt and be an all around bad@$$! Lifted over 14,000 focusing on my back - lats and traps. Was able to row with 90 lbs and do pulldown with 85! Gave me new confidence!!My favorite second workout on Sunday is my volunteer shepherding. Spent almost 2 hours with all the mud and hay to rake up and move. They were happy - downright hams!!If you have never heard him I strongly recommend Kris Gethin’s podcasts. He’s no frills, down to earth and hard hitting motivation. It’s why he’s the leading Ironman today.Today was leg day and it ended up being an awesome workout/ 2 personal bests and can still walk!! 😊 lifted 40,000 pounds in total!Survived team training class -45 minutes of burpees, battling ropes, lunges, squats and more! Thought I was dying but hung in AS THE ONLY WOMAN! Peak HR to 160, 485 calories gone!Away for several days of scientific meetings. Carried my food but the refrig doesn’t work. Just got ice- roasted Brussels sprouts instead of candy. 12 miles and adding of walking in Boston!Last day to pound out some miles- have to leave early due to@an impending storm. Goodbye Bean- will miss you!! Thanks for the 23 miles the last 3 days!! 👍🏽💕💕Active rest Sunday and my regular day to tend to the sheep. My buddy decided to try to head butt me three times. A lot of jumping around and spraying his face with vinegar water. ☹️ But 700 calories are 🔥🔥 and my favorite Keto casserole is ready. 💕💕So happy that I went to the gym despite oversleeping my alarm and being up with my sick son (stomach bug). I had PRs with 90 lbs on seated cable rows and lat pulldown. My total lift today was 21,500 pounds just for my back!! 😊Group training class had a new trainer— he kicked my butt. 75 y o woman in class not breaking a sweat!! Felt down about the slow rate of my loss until I saw this pic ( on left) from ten years ago!! 40 more to go!Best kind of day- got my exercise and it was for a cause. Over 12000 steps just for the March alone before my housework! Will sleep well!Another great weekly workout with my wooly coaches. They have gotten bigger and hungrier by the week. Lucky reminds me of my face when I see crackers on a low carb day!!Another shepherd Sunday- I am so glad I volunteered to do this. It’s a great workout- but more importantly it’s my place of peace. Seeing their personalities, being humbled by their affection, seeing the full cycle of life. A blessing!!Today is chest and cardio day. After my Sunday workout with my wooly coaches and intervals plus weights and yard work Saturday I’m definitely “feeling the work”! Happy Monday!Hit my personal best on the leg press today - 250 lbs for 20 reps and passed my old squat goal - up to 70 for 15 without struggling. Able to wind it up with run/ walk intervals. Training increases on Monday!Today is an active rest day after 90 minutes of raking, shoveling, hauling and climbing- before we even talk about walking yesterday. My coaches were feisty, happy and hungry. They are my besties!Been a week of cardio with work deadlines and drama. Today I had cardio and weights as we flipped, trimmed and sheared sheep. One little guy I just picked up under the forelegs and carried him. Great workout and fun!!day 7 of my streak for "Log in and spin the SparkPoints wheel" earned 10/30/2018As always enjoying my rest day exercise with my ovine coaches - they keep me moving until the hay is set, the grain poured and their fleeces scratched!!💕😊🐏🐑Great start to my 30 day overhaul a la David Goggins. Didn’t quit, even ran at the end - working for physical and mental toughness. Already shaved 2 min off my pace 5 days ago.Doing lots of accountability, reading and following David Goggins, pushing limits and exploring how to overcome/challenges barriers to my goals. Beat my own goal for today - thunderstorm and all!
