Happy Monday Bleeps!
hahaha...can a Monday really be happy?
Well today I finally got the results of my fitness assessment. FINALLY! I was pretty excited. The results were given: poor, Avg -, Avg, Avg +, Good, and Excellent. Considering that I didn't know what my competition was doing I was very unsure of where I fell.
My results: 1 Avg, 2 Avg +, and 2 Good. YEAH! I was told that I did very well for my first assessment. We still have to be sorted into teams and given the rules for the points, but now I know where I stand on a few things. More importantly, I know where I need to improve.
My Avg was for plank. I had 93 seconds. My goal is 120 seconds now. My 2 Avg + - Squats and my Body Composition. Okay, well we knew I lowballed the squats. My goal is 100...I want an Excellent! My body composition, well I'm not quite sure what my goal is there. I want to lose at least 10 lbs, but I have make sure that I tighten up the pinchable areas...ugh. My Goods - At rest heart rate and push ups. I will be happy with the heart rate, but I want excellent for the push ups. I would love all excellents, but I have to be realistic. My goal: 2 excellents, 2 goods, and 1 Avg +.
Oh I almost forgot. I got a 99% for the sit and reach. Considering that's out of 100% I am going to count that as an Excellent!
I know it's just a work fitness competition. It's not like I'm competing in the Biggest Loser, but I am out for blood. I don't even know if there's a prize or anything. I just know that I want to WIN! I have put a target on a friend's back. He sort of knows that, but I'm using him as my motivation. I want to crush him like a bug (sorry Ryan, but it's true). We talk every day about our upcoming and past workouts. He's my motivation. I know what he's doing so that pushes me.
My mom says that I would get voted off of The Biggest Loser at the earliest possible moment because I would be a target. haha. It's true though. I can relate to Tara, John, and Ali from previous years. I am so focused on the finish line it is not even funny.
Seriously, if people can see a big difference in my body since January 1, there is every reason to believe I can keep this up through Memorial Day and smoke the competition (speaking of smoke, throwing in a Shout out to my favorite Smoke...Congratulations Tony Stewart on your win yesterday! Call me!). Granted, I have a little more motivation than a lot of people. That dang promise of me in a bikini June 1 is looming in my head.
I do have the problem that I have a lot of travel weekends and events coming up in the next couple of months so it's especially important to keep focused. I will need to find a Yoga replacement. I found out that that class is offered monday's too so I may have to do that a couple times a month. We do have bootcamp starting on Tuesdays after work (the one day a week I see Gym Crush #1...BAHHHHH so I will make that sacrifice for a couple of months) next week.
Alright kids, I had a good run tonight at the gym (super drenched by the end...I was a big ol' pile of sweat) and I am beat. Tomorrow I have to hit the weights so I'm calling it a night. Sweet dreams!
