Well, I am not going to resist giving my opinion about this workout today... it was awesome! I think that tomorrow I will be suffering but today I am feeling GREAT! I have to say that I do NOT have an accurate read on my HRM today because the darn thing kept beeping and squeaking and couldn't read my HR but it did register 321 calories although I am certain that I burned over that.

Now it wouldn't be fair to just leave you with all these glorious thoughts that Total Body was pure Ecstasy because it was HARD. There were these crunchy pull up things that were impossible for me to do... there were bouncing push ups that were a real challenge and I was only able to do about three of them... but it was a great challenge and I hope that I will be able to do them before week 4. I have the ARX2 left to do and I am going to try and get it in tonight. Mr. Wonderful started back at some training yesterday so maybe he will do the ARX with me... that would be great!

I am regretting not taking my measurements at the beginning of the week because I feel like I have already seen some changes in my mid-section. I will measure just before I start the program and weigh in but for now I am going blind. I keep reminding myself that I am just doing this to get a feel for the workouts so that I can be better equipped to do the program beginning on the 16th... but I am already really excited about everything!! I get up before the alarm now... and, for the record, I am NOT a morning person. I can't wait to get this party started and start earning my new physique.

On the nutrition side, I have been doing great and feeling awesome because of it. I made the Beef Barley soup from the nutrition guide because we love soup and it is tasty stuff. I will definitely be making that again!! I have been getting all my water in and peeing like crazy... but that is all a part of the game.

Hope you are all doing well... make it a great day!
