The Body Back Olympics

Last weeks Wednesday Body Back Session was called the BB Olympics. It was called that because we were asked to push ourselves past our limits and do as much as we possibly could. We were told our minds shut down before our bodies do, and we totally proved it that day!

Here's a little taste of what our workout looked like:

7 minutes of Squats
8 1/2 minute wall sit
6 minutes of reverse lunges
3 minutes of mountain climbers
3 minutes of push ups
3 minutes Bicep curls
3 minutes Triceps
4 minutes of crunches

and I know there was more... but thats all my brain is capable of remembering right now. Lets just say I haven't been able to post until now because even my fingers have been feeling this workout. HECK! Muscles I didnt even know existed were feeling this workout! Its typical for me to be sore the day after a workout, but since we all pushed ourselves so hard, I felt this one all through the weekend! And with each crooked stair climb up the condo, or hobble to the baby's room in the middle of the night, I was reminded of what a GREAT workout I had!

During the wall sit Angela read out compliments that the other BBers had said about each of us, and it was quite touching. I got a few "Sassy MAMA" and "Fun mama" compliments, all things that made it a little easier to keep that wall sit with shaking thighs. Angela even started to get teary while she spoke about one of the BBers in my class- it was a sweet moment. It made me realize how lucky I am to have met these women, and fall into this group. Not only for the changes I've been able to make to my body and lifestyle, but these are the kind of women I want to surround myself with. These are the positive, hard-working, loving influences that inspire me daily.

So yes, my achey body needed a few days (four to be exact) to recover from the workout- but this workout was such a great experience, totally worth it.

BTW, Wednesday was my first weigh in since Hawaii- and we are still dropping people!
