It's finally over!! 👍🤮🥳
Today, I did my last 6 week challenge workout. Total of 61 workouts altogether. Actually, I could go to another class at the other gym to make it 62 but.....Hell no!!! I'm done. I've worked out so many times where a part of me was still hurting from previous workouts. Strategically, the gym does balance it out and work on certain parts of your body with the combination of mixing heavy lifting days with cardio type of days. So if your arms are hurting from the day before, no worries. They will instill new pain in your core. The day after, they'll work on your legs. When all body parts are hurting, they slam in cardio days so that even when doing cardio workouts, you still feel just from the movements but you also max out your heart rate to just to top it off. Or like me, you do it once in the morning then one more stupid time in the evenings. Final weight loss? 11 lbs. I hit a low of 163 lbs. I failed to hit 160 lbs but I'm ok with this. I do feel some new string bean strands in little skinny muscles in my legs and arms. I got my compromise of weight loss and strength gain.
The workout today was mild so I survived. I was really hurting from yesterday's cardio 12 min AMRAP (AS many reps as possible) 3 times. It was a smaller class we had to spread out so only one person was with me as we swapped stations. So I told her we should team up and do it together at the same pace. The thing about that is you can't slow down because you'll feel bad for slowing down your teammate. I'm sure she felt the same. That means we really pushed hard just to not get embarrassed. So we pushed each other really hard lapping other people doing our thing. She's also so short. Maybe 5'1" maybe? But...she was a fricking firecracker. She was pretty much keeping up with our pace and we lapped people along the way. I sort of saw her at the gym a few times but I never really spoke to her except for yesterday. I finally found out what her name is. It was kinda cool too. It looked like we'd be doing synchronized workouts. From bear crawls, jumping jacks, bounding, ladder climbs, vertical jumps, etc, etc. We'd match each other jump for jump.
Later, I thought about it. It made me wish I had a partner in crime to enjoy life with. No, not falling for this lady. I just liked the situation I was in. Two people doing fun things together enjoying the moment and each other having fun. Not taking anything away from this lady at all. She's shorter than me, nice demeanor, and a pretty nice body so there is no reason not to like her. I just wish that maybe one day, I'll have my moments like this with a special someone. Not doing crossfit though. Well, let me say yes during crossfit but for other more fun stuff too like wine tasting, kayaking, camping, traveling, etc, etc. That kind of partner in crime. But nowadays, the girl next door types are a rare breed. Not many like that anymore. I'm old school. Many woman are now the "my way or the highway" type of woman. They don't like to be led yet they don't realize that some of the traits they are displaying is not attractive to a man. She they'll end up only with cats in their later years. Anyway, enough of that. I can dream those dreams later. I'm in a pretty good mood now because I've achieved a few goals here so I'm going to relish on those accomplishments.
The surprising positive results from this is that I no longer want to have to have a glass of wine. No impulse at all to have any. Also, I get up before 5AM now and that to me was shocking. Especially since my lifestyle was not the best of the best. I didn't expect this but I have a bunch of new friends too now along with being in another clique. I got my participation certificate even though I was just kidding about that, they actually handed me one. hehe. In a way, I'm saving money now for food. Even though I never finish my salad stuff that I buy from Costco, I go out to eat a lot less now so money spent on eating out dropped significantly. I would like to say my libido and sex life is much better but since I'm not participating in that, then I can't confirm that. haha. Life is good and Friday is already here. Where did the week go? Don't know but I got some fun plans for this weekend so I can't wait. Work is slow today so I should be able to put myself in cruise control mode. Enjoying my dopamine fix. Smiling like the village idiot :)
