I woke up today to a fresh cup of steaming coffee, a good night’s rest behind me. Looking forward to the day? Nope. Workout Nazi had already informed me that we had a two hour workout planned for this morning.
I got my breakfast in me…whole wheat bagel with egg on it. I’m not a huge breakfast eater, but today I wish I’d had more. Those approximately 250 calories didn’t last very long.
We started off with–once again–the devious Coach Troy and his Ultimate Conditioning dvd. One hour of cycle spinning, interspersed with squats, plyometrics, and pain, and I wished we were done. Alas, it was not to be.
Another hour of torture by the Workout Nazi Jeff’s exercise plan involved running intervals combined with upper body circuits. I can handle 8 minute runs, I told myself. Okaaayyyy….eight minutes run, five minutes of weights, eight minutes of running, etc. Over and over again….
Two hours. Sweat. Pain. Barked orders (his, not mine!) and I’m done. My legs and arms are wet noodles. But I have to admit, I feel like I accomplished something. Thanks to Workout Nazi, I lost 2 1/2 pounds last week for my Biggest Loser competition at school. He’s on a roll to make me lose at least another pound this week. I may just do it….but don’t tell him I said so.
