Whoo-wee - I made it through week 2 of Body Beast! I had a bit of a mishap on day 7, but that has already been made up for and I am not planning on allowing it to happen again! All's well that ends well, though, and I'm a happy camper at the moment.
My second week of Body Beast looked like this:
Well, Saturday was a bit of a pickle for me. Bonnie decided not to sleep well on Friday night so my 530 am wake-up call simply didn't happen, and although I had brought my weights, shoes and workout with me out of town I simply didn't get it done. (Shame on me!) But this week I WILL get my workouts back on the correct schedule - mark my words! If I don't you have my absolute permission to call me out on it - but it ain't gonna happen!
Besides Saturday, though, I had a great week with Body Beast! I can definitely feel myself getting stronger in my arms, legs and core - and I love that feeling. When I go to do push-ups, squats or ab work I can seriously feel the muscles that are already there start to get primed up and I LOVE feeling strong!
Tuesday's Beast: Abs includes a specific workout called Beast Abs and let me just say this - I have never experienced a better ab workout than this exercise. It is difficult but it is also fun - I think so far it is my favorite of all the exercises in all the Body Beast workouts. Let's see if that stays the case as I continue on!
I'm now going into week 3 of Body Beast, and the Lean Beast workout is set up in three blocks - Block 1 is the Build block, Block 2 is Bulk and Block 3 is Beast. When I'm done with Week 3 I will be moving on to the Bulk Block - pretty darn exciting!
Enough with all the jabber, though, right? I think it's time for results!
Last week I had actually ended up going up a bit in weight - but not this week! Not only did I lose all the weight I had gained, I even went a bit under my starting point. I have absolutely no problem with this! I went into Body Beast with the mindset that the scale wouldn't get me down. As it is a weightlifting and strength workout, I knew that I would be gaining muscle and, as such, could also see the scale go up rather than down. But the scale going down isn't a bad thing!
Now I am on to week three and I can't wait to see these numbers continue to change - but more importantly I can't wait to see how GREAT I will feel over the next several weeks!
