Well I just hit the half-way point of this program– crazy how fast four weeks go. As you can see, you work up a sweat in the short 22 minutes that you have! Also, I did the Fit Test today– you do one at Day 1, one at the end of week 4, and one at the end of week 8.
Here are my results– (I will qualify this by saying that coming into this program, I was the strongest I’ve ever been from coming off of Hammer and Chisel, so didn’t really think there was much room for me to improve much. So glad I was wrong).
Week 1 (1 Minute Each):
Squat Thrust: 32 at 10lbs
Pull Up: 3 (45 sec. dead hang)
Jumping Jacks: 57
Forearm Plank Hold: 1 minute 26 seconds
Week 2 (1 Minute Each)
Squat Thrust: 40 at 10lbs
Pull Up: 3 (60 sec. dead hang)
Jumping Jacks: 77
Forearm Plank Hold: 1 minute 56 seconds
I’m so excited to see the numbers at the end of the program– also to see if I can finally conquer pull-ups– the are my nemesis! I think that a lot of the improvement has come from some of the brand new moves that have been incorporated in like these Gorilla Crawls (the make your legs and booty BURN!)
And as always, here is our meal plan for the week below. I’m really trying to stick with the actual times to eat the container portions, but not reflected on this plan is what my husband and son will have- they eat the same things that I do, but I add in extra things for them– so for instance, on our turkey meatball night, they both have spaghetti and I have zucchini noodles). Clean eating has just become what we do (although we absolutely do have treats still!) and so even though they may have some extras, we all still have the same overall meal.
I’m so excited to have my next challenge groups kicking off on April 11th, so if you’d like extra support and encouragement, I’d love to help you out along the way!
