When was the last time you pleasantly surprised or even shocked someone, and remained anonymous?

Well, it just may be the most fun one can have in time and space.

Sleep: 9h 44m
Overall morning mood: I feel like the more sleep I get the better I feel. Sounds dumb to say that. Like Duh… Of course you do stupid. Ha! Not sure why fight sleep the way we do. Although, I do think my sweet spot is between 8.5 and 9 hours of sleep.

I was excited for week 7 to start on this program. Today was a strength circuit and was looking forward to change.

    • Notes: Overall notes from the gym and yoga…

      • Awesome workout at the gym. I know I can push the weight and probably the reps on everything. It felt awesome. I took video of my dead lifts. I was going slow and from I could tell, I was really happy with my form. I don’t anticipate any sort of soreness other than from lifting weight for the first time in about 9-10 weeks.

      • I felt strong. I wanted to get to yoga so i thought I would get to the C2 class at noon. I am glad that I did. I once again thoroughly enjoyed her class of ass kicking. I was definitely warm, which was nice. I wish I had the time to journal quick after class before heading to work so I would remember more.

      • I was pouring sweat. It felt so good. I know one question I mean to ask was; when do I know when my rear foot should be up on the ball mount or driving backwards through my heel.

      • Not that Jamie didn’t kick my ass enough, I decide to stay for the C1 class at 130 as well. I enjoy Ellen’s class as well very much. The C1 was a nice addition to the C2 class as I was able to slow it down and really focus on breathing correctly. I am still so green to the C2 classes that I feel kind of all over the place.

      • I really wanted to push it today to see how my body would handle it and how sore, if at all, I would be tomorrow. Tomorrow is an easy cardio day.

      • Thanks much Jamie and Ellen for great classes today, Infinite Love & Gratitude!

      • What a killer day!!
