Can I just say... INTO THE 70's!!!!  Well.... just barely.  I weighed in yesterday at Jenny Craig & lost 3.1 lbs & am now 179.5 lbs.  I haven't been in the 70's since Alex & I got married. I FEEL AMAZING!!!!  I just have to say that I love VO2 Max soooooo much.  Here is a list of things I have done within the last 2 weeks that I NEVER thought I could ever do...

1) Push ups from my toes rather than just my knees (like 8 sets of them at a time... so like 50 push ups!)

2) Box jumps... totally overcame a psychological fear I had of trusting myself to jump (with both feet at the same time!) onto a wooden box.  (The one I jumped on was a lot shorter than the one featured in the video in the link)

3) Full sit ups... My abs were terrible & when doing crunches I would get stuck at about 5 inches high... but last week at bootcamp one night, I was just able to do full ones & have been able to do them ever since & it's amazing!!!

and today....

for the first time ever....

I flipped a 330 lb myself!!!

That is the size of the tire I flipped... And believe me, it was intense.  I'd flipped it with another person before, but I was a goal of mine to do it by myself.  I tried last week & couldn't do it...but today... I got 'er done!  It felt fantastic & I'm not gonna lie, after screaming for a bit, I had a couple of tears of joy in my eyes. 

So that's why I'm so grateful for V02 Max, because without that facility, I never would've been able to accomplish these things.  And I feel so empowered every time I'm there & make it through a bootcamp.

Today was our 2nd Biggest Loser challenge.  We had to do 16 over head presses w/ 15 lb weights, then step up onto a wooden box (not jump) 16 times, then run through a rope grid, then run 4 bean bags back & forth a 10 foot distance, then run across a balance beam, THEN row 500m.  Fastest time wins.  So I went first & booted it & got everything done in 3:39.  I was in first place for the whole thing until Troy went (last) & creamed me with a time of 3:03. 

So it was almost a sweet victory of a 2lb advantage at Monday's weigh in...but once again... Troy got it. That's okay though because the 2lb advantage doesn't count at the finale & as long as I don't get eliminated on Monday, I should still be good to go. :)

Here are the pics Meaghan took of me last week & today...
