Refuse to Sink.

I think this is a perfect way to explain how I feel right now.

My health, my life, my well being, I have taken  matters into my own hands and sticking with what works for me.

I Refuse to Sink.  I will Keep Swimming.  I will conquer no matter how long it takes.

 

 

 

This week at the gym, I was really proud of myself. Here is how I did:

Monday

8 min AMRAP

5 push press – 25 lbs

6 box jumps – I am jumping on 2 plates right now,

7 KB swings 0 26 lbs

I got 5 rounds, 11 reps

6 min AMRAP

6 thrusters – 25lbs

60 single jumps

I got 3 rounds.  Whoa Nelly were those jumps harder than I thought! Snuck up on me!

4 mins- as many backsquats as possible – 15 lbs – I got 60.

To say my legs were burnin would be an understatement.

Wednesday – Lift day!!!

My favorite!!! Wish it was every day 🙂

10 single leg dead lifts – 18lbs

8 seated presses – 18lbs

30 frog pumps

(3) 20 second hollow holds

Thursday

4 rounds

200 m row

15 wall balls – 8lbs

15 box jumps – ( actually 7″ plates )

15 hollow tucks

I completed this in ……. get ready for it……. 18:24 !!!!!!   What the frack ?!?!?  I was dying, sweat dripping, eyeballs sweaty, ready to puke, but I DID IT!

Honestly, I believe it was the power of MC HAMMER , that propelled me.  We had a 90’s throwback jams playlist going , along with Hammer , we had Humpty Hump, No Diggity, you get the gist.  I was 2 Legit 2 Quit! It was quite the interesting class.  Coach Jane always makes it fun.

 

I have got to tell you folks, yours truly , is back at it , back in the game, and the Swim is strong! After the past year and a half of all my various crap, I am back doing what I need to do for me .

Managing my condition, once I had a better understanding of what is going on and how my body is reacting to things with the info from my drs, was number 1.

I needed to get working out.  I really just love working out in this format.  I do. I feel good, I feel strong , I feel fierce. I feel freakin awesome!

In addition, adding Plexus into my daily routine has helped so much . It has really helped me so much, I cannot even put it into words.  I wish I had discovered it sooner.  The funny thing is, I didn’t realize how much I wear my emotions on my face. I keep hearing how people can tell I am feeling better. How crazy is that?   I signed up to be a Plexus Ambassador because this product is now something I  NEED, I do. I figured why now get the most of it as possible.  If you are interested in learning about Plexus or want to give it a whirl – check  out my site : Meg’s Plexus Site.

Or shoot me an email – lets chat. lessthighsmorethunder@gmail.com

I feel better than I have in such a long time.

It’s taken me a while and its a long road, but I feel I am at the start of a great part of this journey!
