commitment is not my strong suit…
but i seriously am trying to do this. with that said, i’m breaking the rules a little bit. the rules say ‘no booze’. and i simply won’t do that.
please notice that i didn’t say “i can’t do that”. because i can. i just don’t want to.
additionally, i’m allowing myself to have 1 square of organic dark chocolate each night. because f*ck, are you kidding me? try it and watch how amazing all.the.things are.
so yesterday was the first day, the baseline assessment. here were the tasks at hand:
- run a mile as fast as you can
- crawl-out push up’s
- single leg toe touches
- body weight squats
- tricep dips
yesterday was one of those gorgeous, minnesota fall days, of which we only get approximately 5 or 6 of before it snows and turns into the god forsaken tundra around here. and i had my running clothes with me at work, so i decided to throwback to spring 2013 and run home from work. it’s about 3 miles, so i ran the first mile as fast as my little knee would take me (9:30), then i did a combo of walk/running until i got to a park that i was willing to publicly embarrass myself in by doing the following:
- crawl-out push up’s: 5 (on one of these, i just laid in the grass because i couldn’t get back up. not cool, ashley. not cool.)
- burpee’s: 12
- toe touches: 18
- squats: 20
- tricep dips: 20
in other news, i'm still meeting with my personal trainer, and she continues to be, pretty much, the sh*t. also, i'm finally having an mri on my knee this week. i'm kind of hoping it's a tear so we can just have surgery and move on with life. srrsly.
