W7:L2:D1 - 23 rounds
Week 7 already? Well... it's been less actual time because I do simplefit work outs every other day so my simplefit week is actually only 6 days long. When I say "I do simplefit work outs every other day" I mean I log simple fit work outs every other day. I incorporate bits and peices into my other exercise which happen on the in between days.
So... how'd we do today?
first five rounds were single pull-ups. Subsequent rounds were 3 body row subs, push-ups were standard tonia styles, squats were done in triplicate or something, dunno wasn't really counting, but I was having fun, and working hard.
Exams: Four days down... one to go... then, oh yes... then... STRAWBERRY RHUBARB PIE! (I've been on a brain friendly eating plan all summer - pretty much paleo, give or take, and the fantasy retox food I've been looking forward too as a reward for finishing the most excrutiating exam experience(s) of my life is the Strawberry Rhubarb Pie... mmm mmm mmm). This will be going down (literally) at 2 PM PST tomorrow. Dairy, fruit, sugar, wheat, mmm.... so delicious... probs gonna get sooo sick... mmmm
ok nap time, then back to the books.

ok so away for a week at my kid's summer camp (and by "my kids" I don't mean that I have kids... nopers... light years away from that milestone, but I mean the kids' camp for which I work) was a mega shock to the system... no simple fit and eating process foods!!!! Dun dun duhhhh....
so any hoo...
back at 'er today. 23 rounds for week 7 ish level 2 day 1. First five rounds were pull-ups and subsequently 3:1 body rows. Squats were done in triplicate, single legged, weighted, you know the ush.
I'm done exams! Only 5 weeks of waiting before I get my results... pretty agonizing.
missed you guys!
ps... i'm 157.5 cm... no where near 192.

Great work on the tabatas!
Reading your post almost makes me miss my workout DVDs which have been laying forgotten by the wayside since I started simplefit (and dance dance revolution). Almost.

Tonia, you continue to do fantastic (and your posts are still super entertaining). Excellent work on all of it!

So yesterday I got on a bike for the first time in 12 years. And not only did I get on the bike, but I actually rode it. This was massive for me. Today my bum hurts. This is assive for me. Ha! Couldn't resist... and I thought I'd get it in there before VBM did
So today. What did I do? I did a bunch of random things, mostly inspired by simplefit, and somewhat inspired by failure.
So la la la... video cardio. Pause.
Push up tabata challenge. Woah. 20, 15, plumets to 6 - fatigue, then nose dives to 0 - failure.
Play. Bounce around, la la la la. Pause.
Lets try a body row tabata. Right. Pretty much followed the push up pattern. Yikes.
That's two failures. Woah, t, why so hard on you?
So then more video.
Then a simplefit salad tabata, we shall call it the salata:
20 second interval of max push ups, 10 seconds rest, 20 second interval of max body rows, 10 seconds rest, 20 second interval of max squats, 10 seconds rest. Repeat 3 times (for a total of 4 rounds).
This is how it broke down:
P16,B15,S18; P15,B13,S17; P13,B11,S17; P11,B12,S18;
Then cooled down with the video.
I'm off to a wedding which should be good! This rad girl (Friend from highschool) emails me and says, "I'm so excited I just talked to the caterers and have secured the hamburgers for the wedding." Nice.

I won't make any connections about mass and a**.
Tons of work you did there!
I won't try the pushup Tabata today. Bad allergy times down here in the Tenn. Valley.
I expect to fail as well
Enjoy the burgers!
