My day yesterday started early. I was at BifG at 7am and I was confronted by my trainer informing me that I would be completing the Filthy Fifty. I did not know what that was, but I didn't like the sound of fifty anything! Before she even explained it, she told me that if I could complete it, I could add my name to the gym wall with a sharpie. Um okay, that sounds like motivation I suppose.
|The writing is on the wall....|
Walking Lunges (with 20lbs dumbbells)Knee To Elbows (Olympic Rings)
Push Press (Olympic Bar)
Ball Squats (Toss 8lbs medicine ball up and catch with squat)
Kettle Bell Swings (20lbs)
Double Unders (jump rope passing 2x on every jump)Burpees
Well guess what Sweets? At first I thought there would be no way in hell that I could complete it. Some stations were definitely harder than others. The Knee to Elbows almost did me in.

Do you see it? Right down there at the bottom! Ahh yeah!!!! I know a lot of the times on the wall are better, but I am still really proud of myself. As a result of powering through that workout, I have acquired a few bruises. I saw this cute poster and it total applies to my life:
Have you Sweets ever got through a really tough workout?
