I think I have just completed one of the hardest workouts I have ever done in my life!
After bathing and tucking my daughter up in bed, I had a choice.
I was edging so much towards just sitting down and putting my feet up but I was still itching for a workout.
Knowing that I had taken a day off yesterday and having 'The Feel Good Files #4' awaiting I suddenly decided to go for it..
(After Workout Selfie - Thank god the lighting is bad so you can't see how much I was sweating!)
I searched for Pop Sugar Fitness on Youtube, they always have great content and then swiftly picked the 'Fat-Burning Cardio Sculpt Workout'
However I had no idea how tough it was going to be.
It was hardcore, heart pumping and sweat inducingly good!
It pushed me to my current limit which can only mean that the gains will follow.
During a few of the moves I stopped sooner than the trainer and on some I did not put in as much umph as they did - buuuuuut - I finished it and I felt the success, which was so thrilling.
Sometimes I wonder if this feeling alone is what motivates me. The wuzzy fuzzy jelly legs feeling at the end that was earned by pushing myself.
I don't know where I found the energy to finish but I began by dragging my feet before it had even starting it. Then the determination set it.
As soon as it was over I splashed my face with cool water then grabbed a protein shake. I'm currently using X-Tone Protein Whey which has seemed to be working so far. I'm not a protein shake pro though and this is the first brand that I've ever tried. Excuse the pictures, I promise I'll stop being lazy and get my blogging camera out soon. My phone is just currently so much more convenient.
Do you have a favourite Protein Shake??
