Row, row, row your boat!!

I am proud to announce a sub-2min 500meter row today - I hit 1:58. Of course, this completely smoked me for the rest of the work-out!! (Bodyweight Baseline).

I was doing well for the first minute of rowing, but then I lost steam. I'd like to try it again - because I started out with an all-out sprint, and next time I want to try to pace myself better so I don't lose it at the end.


Note to self: Do not try to set a rowing PR at the beginning of a circuit - because your time on the rest of the circuit will be a joke!!!

Improvement on the Squat!

It took me a while, but my form for the squat has finall improved! I don't have any advice for people struggling to keep their torso straight - except practice practice practice! Also - warming up helps!!!

Before and After:

One Month on the Zone

I don't have too much more to say than I already said in my previous post, but basically:

I've been on the Zone for one month. In that month I've lost a total of 10lbs (down to 172), and one pants size (from a size 14 to a size 12). I also got in my first pull-up!! My energy level has been steady, and I generally feel more capable during the workouts. I'm rarely wanting for food - especially once I figured out how to eat chocolate and stay in the Zone! :)

I wonder what another month will bring!
