Day #8


OK- so I was up and at’em not too early this AM.  Like 720 or so.  I had As One at 845.  However, I have come to find that I am so sensitive to any type of sugar.  I ate a few chocolate covered raisins last night and I was up ALLLLL night bc of it.  It is amazing what that can do to me.  Terrible!

But, today’s workout at As One was SERIOUS.  I mean, it severely kicked my ass.  Hard core circuit training is no joke!  I did, however, try a new apparatus today… and I am not sure we are friends.


Jacob’s Ladder is a beast of a machine.  I mean I can climb a ladder and, this simulates climbing a ladder, however, when I climb a ladder I don’t climb the never ending ladder to THE END OF THE EARTH!  I climb a six foot ladder to my cabinet or a ten foot ladder to a lightbulb.

I mean, I am partially kidding, I think I’m mad at this apparatus because it really crushed me and I’m not quite at a fitness level to crush it back 😀

All the more reason to keep trying!


Last night we had a delish dinner of black bean spaghetti – that’s right, noodles made of SOLELY black beans – and ground turkey sauce made from ground turkey and crushed tomatoes… it was AWESOME!

I hear a leftovers night tonight.  Off to take Lillie to gymnastics.
