5:45 AM: Bob Harper’s Pure Burn Super Strength – COMPLETED
I was able to squeeze in a run during lunch yesterday and I overestimated the weather. I was overdressed for this run. First, there was a chance of rain, so I wore a hat. I’m not big on wearing hats during a run, but mainly because I have sensitive skin, so right by my hairline, I start getting all itchy. Then, I wore gloves. It was so not necessary. I also wore long sleeves, which I probably would have been better off wearing a zip-up with a tank underneath. Yes, that’s how warm it felt. I can’t complain though. I had a great run in perfect weather.
I used the same route as last week’s lunch time run. The only change I made was taking a detour through the park. It’s a small park and I’ve never ran through it, so I thought, why the heck not.
As lovely as it was, I probably should have stuck to my route because I came out short at the end of my run. I wanted to do close to 4.5-5 miles and it came out to 4.10. But, a run is a run, so I will not complain.
So, I’m really digging my Bob Harper workouts. Today I tried out the last workout I purchased and I have to say, it’s intense, in a good way. I had to stop a few times during T-planks. I am feeling tight and sore in places I didn’t think I could feel sore. I’m sure I’m feeling a lot of this soreness because it’s my first week trying them out, but seriously, I give his workouts an A+. If you don’t belong to a gym and like working out in the comfort of your own, I highly recommend his workouts! All you need are weights and a mat.
I’m close to entering 6-months post-pregnancy. Can you believe it? Can you believe that Lili is almost 6-months old?!? I mean, really, where does the time go? I feel like the entire pregnancy was a dream. A good dream at that.
I have been terrible at posting my post-pregnancy updates. Well, first of all, Pedro took my stand away. I use to use the stereo speaker to put my camera so I can self-time pictures. He decided his man-cave needed surround sound. Hence, no more easy access to taking self-portraits. I need to invest in a stand.
If you remember, here’s what I looked like 2-weeks post-pregnancy:
Then 1-month post-pregnancy.
Then 10-weeks post-pregnancy (almost 3-months later).
Then I stopped taking updates because I didn’t have my stand. I attempted to take them today with my phone. Not sure how clear they look, but here’s what I got.
After looking at these pictures, the quality is very poor. But it’s all I got. It’s still a work in progress. I mean, I can’t expect miracles here. My body was stretched out with a baby. It takes a lot of hard work, motivation, determination. Fortunately, I’m motivated when it comes to working out. However, when it comes to food, a lot of times I can’t resist my sweets and pizza and french fries. HA! I do try to watch what I eat and limit my sweets and junk intake, but sometimes, it’s hard to resist.
Do you watch what you eat? Do you budget your calories? I am big on watching what I eat. I try to eat more during the day and less at night. I also try to have a good, strong workout before events (i.e holiday parties, Thanksgiving, birthday parties, etc.).
