I’m so confused… after having two not so great weigh-in’s in a row I told myself that I was going to up my calorie intake to what is recommended for my current weight to see if my metabolism has slowed down. I did that for about two days. Then, I got a big slap in the face this weekend when Brent hung up my Lululemon hoodie and turned to me and said, “Are you ready for this?”
For those of you who haven’t read Operation Lululemon, my husband and I have a bet as to whether or not I can zip my jacket up by Valentine’s Day. If I can, then I get to go shopping for more Lululemon attire. If I can’t then he get’s something. I’ve only got two weeks to win this challenge. Now is not the time for science experiments!
What do I do?! I can’t plateau anymore but I don’t want to waste time trying to figure out what is going on. This is so weird because a few months ago I would have jumped at the chance to have an excuse to eat more. But I’m on a roll and don’t want to screw that up. Most importantly, I want to kick my husband’s butt!
Speaking of butt kicking…
I met up with my friend at Crossfit Bodywerx today for a round of “Brent is mad at me for stealing the covers last night so I must suffer”. Take note… if you can help it NEVER let your spouse be your personal trainer. My problem is that my husband is just so blasted good at it that I just can’t help myself.
I tried to get Brent to take pictures while we worked out but he told me he was my trainer not my photographer… Well excuse me Mr. Big Trainer Pants!
Here is the workout and the terrible pictures that he did manage to take…
(The following were done down one end of the gym and back again.)
10 air squats
Using a medicine ball as a spotter to help you focus on form
Once again going light and focusing on form
Holding the bar hurt Morgan’s shoulder so she did it with a kettlebell behind her back.
(workout of the day)
Part 1: The Butt
3 rounds of 20 walking lunges and penguin walks
You look really special while doing this but it KILLS your butt.
Here I am lunging… well, that actually looks more like the pee pee dance. Let’s try that again.
Oh brother, that seriously looked so much better in my head.
This is the point where Brent informed me that he was not the photographer. After looking at the pictures I’m pretty sure he just knew he wasn’t any good at it. But Penelope thought it was rude…
At this point I was too tired to care and we weren’t done by a long shot.
Part 2: The Tummy
twisting med ball tosses (5 burpees for each time you drop it)
Part 3: The lungs
Three rounds of shuttle runs and 15 russian kettle bell swings
We had to do these as fast as possible. My times were 28 seconds, 25 seconds and 24 seconds.
After that workout I didn’t care how many calories I ate just as long as I got some food in my belly. I’m still a little confused but I’m going to try not to overthink it. If I’m hungry I’ll eat a little more if I’m not I’ll eat a little less. All I know is that I better be able to zip up that hoodie without looking like a ten pound sausage in a five pound casing.
