However, I know me... and I know if I choose the afternoon the craziness of my life will, more times than not, get in the way and the workout would be postponed. So, even though I am NOT a morning person, by any means of the name, I chose to get up an hour earlier than usual to complete the exercise completely uninterrupted. I am now able to crawl around with butter knees in a pool of my own sweat and slobber completely peacefully. ha.
So... Day 1... the FIT test. WE had to do a warm up exercise to start followed by a stretch... then into the intense fit test we went. I had an entire minute to see how many reps of the following I could fit in said minute. I was pathetic... :/
Switch Jacks - 50sets
Power Jacks - 27
Power Knees - 70
Power Jumps - 20
Globe Jumps - 7 sets
Suicide Jumps - 9
Push Up Jacks - 5 ( I have very weak upper body strength)
Low Plank Obliques - 8
By the time the first four were completed, I was completely SPENT! I had to really push myself to even attempt the rest of the test... as you can possibly tell by the declined numbers of reps. I know what tomorrow holds, because I've already watched the dvd... but I am soooo not looking forward to it. I can't even imagine. I'm sure about 60% of it will be watched by me lying on my back crying with exhaustion. lol. No really, I do want this... badly... and I will push myself as hard as I possibly can.
Usually after a workout I can begin to feel the soreness about a day or two afterwards... well, it's been literally hours now, and I can already feel the soreness coming on. I think I'm just THAT out of shape. Ouch. I did drink a high protein shake after the workout to help with the muscle recovery. I will definitely be soaking in a tub of Epson salt tonight before bed.
So... here are my measurements on day one (eeeak, I can't believe I'll post these)
Weight - 139
Upper arms - 10.75"
Shoulders - 42.75" (around both)
Chest - 35.25 (yeah, nothing there, never was)
Waist - 36.75
Hips - 39 (those kids did that)
Thighs - 21.50
Abv knees - 14.50
upper chest - 34.50
Just my little ramble/journal to track my progress over the next 60 days. Whew... I'm so ready for this to be over with already.
Have any of you taken on a workout challenge lately? How was it?

I imagined my little self in the hands of a great and mighty God, safe from all harm.
He does, He loves you unconditionally and He wants to give you His peace.
So when the door of certainty closes behind you...
remember to put your little self in the hands of a great and mighty God.
