My SMART Quest for today is: Well, so far so good! Since my Reward day I only gained 1 pound! That is good as I usually rack up 3 lbs before it goes away just from eating a reward meal, lol. So today I will continue to try and stay on track. My eating was sparse though out the day yesterday and ended with me eating a few fried shrimp (all that was available). It could have been worse.

SLEEP: 6 1/2 hours - I went to bed again at 12:00 am , awoke at 7:30 am
AWOKE: 7:30 am
WARM UP: 8:00 am - since I am do9ing the HIIT workkout I needed to do 5 minutes of warming up so I incresed my reps in my normal workout and added an extra round.
Metabolic Ignition Phase - Week 4
5 Tabata Intervals
These are timed Intervals: Set your Gymboss Timer to 2 intervals of 30 seconds & 10 seconds and 8 rounds. Each round is 5:20 minutes/seconds.
Side to Side Ski Jumps - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 96, 97, 96, 96, 97, 98, 100, 99 reps per round. I was cranking this out going as fast a I could!
Overhead One Legged Step ups - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 4 round per leg - Left leg - 13, 13, 11, 13, Right leg - 12, 12, 13, 12 reps per round!
Bowling Lunges - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 67, 65, 66, 66, 66, 64, 66, 66 reps per round! I was able to add a few more reps!
8 Count BOSU Body Builders
Knee Hugs (from Zuzana's BodyRock.tv, see photo below) - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 13, 10, 8, 10, 9, 9, 9, 10 reps per round! I don't know what I was thinking trying to do these again as a Tabata! It was hard last time and this time was no better! My abs were on Fire! I was crying through this! 8 rounds could not come quick enough!
- 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 6, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5.5, 5.5 reps per round! . It was a good challenge to add the BOSU to this move! Something new to try!
Meal #2: 11:30 am - 1 small banana, 2 slces of uncured bacon
Meal #3: 3:30 pm - low cal, low sugar , low carb chicken & couscous salad from Trader Joes, I added a few big handfuls of spinach to the salad as there werent' many greens in it. It was very good. 1 slice of flatbread, 1 oz cheese
Meal #4: 0:00 pm -
Meal #5: 0:00 pm -
WATER: 4 glasses (so far)
MINDSET: Having another good day! My weight is still up that 1 lb from reward day, but I am sure by tis week it will go away and take more weight with it! I am a bit worried about the coming dumbbell workouts. I was actually enjoying the bodyweight exercises. I remember last time being impatient to start the dumbbell weight workouts! Then I realized how they got hader each week, and now I don't want to start, lol. Oh well, I will just do it, I rememeber how defined my arms started looking after these workouts!
