Today was supposed to be a rest day..
But it wasn’t. The program called for a rest day but if you know me, then you know I workout about 5 – 6 days a week (when I am healthy and active/not when I am pmsing and sick) and so this means, I did WHAT I WANT (typical of me), will I pay for it later? possibly, but I don’t like having too many rest days unless they are necessary and while I am following the program and doing a good job of it for a day three; I told you I would tweak things to my liking.
Today was my LAST day of the push up challenge and I am sore and very happy! It has been a fun rollercoaster of excitement and strength gains, I am proud of myself and I am looking forward to seeing my competitors at the finish line during this challenge. Yesterday, my calories were under, but didn’t meet any of my macro goals except fats (of course) and this is because I am not used to eating more than 3 times a day (I know, I know, judge me later okay) so I am trying to aim little by little to eat 4 small meals a day and work my way up if necessary. I will be discussing this program via YouTube and still posting my workouts on the blog, BUT more in depth via video.

I made this circuit (it was not in the program) and yes, it was hell! I thought I was going to pass out many times BUT it is a circuit I will do again because the aftermath feels so good.
Let me know if YOU decide to give this circuit a try, I would love to see what others think of it and how well you do 🙂 not to mention, all of you stronger people probably can show off your strength! ha. leave comments and don’t forget to like, share, and follow me! thanks!
