I’m still sick, I woke up feeling like I got hit in the face with a truck.  I did 2 nasal rinses today and I’m still snotting all over the place….so hot I know 🙂 Today started out shaky like it did yesterday, but improved as the day went on.  Computer systems were still down in the morning but came back up in the afternoon, so I was able to catch up on all the information that needed to be entered in to the computer.

We did an office lunch time run again!  It’s nice to work in an office where we can go out and get healthy together! Today we did intervals to work on our speed.  We did a 1 mile warm-up run to the track, the intervals were supposed to be 10 cycles of 20 seconds of sprinting then 40 seconds of walk/jog…preferably jog.  I did the first 5 all out, but then I realized the coworker that we’re trying to get past her fitness test looked like she was starting to peter out.  We all rallied back and kept her motivated.  The whole time during warm up and the sprints she kept checking her watch and checking her pace because she didn’t want to force herself to get past her comfort zone.  I told her forget about pacing and only reaching a certain point! Just give it everything you’ve got!!!  You could tell the last few she wanted to give up, but we all stuck by her encouraging/pushing her and she FINISHED!!!! I think we all may have been more excited than she was. We let her walk it out while the rest of us did 5 more cycles, so we ended up doing 15 total.  Then we did a 1 mile cool down back to work.  In all we did 3.8 miles.

After work WOD: I LOVE Outlaw Crossfit’s programming!!  It’s simple, easy to follow  and it gets the job done.  I just feel so much stronger when I follow their programming. Below is my afternoon WOD(workout of the day)

I was a bit tired of running by the end of today…..

I made my first Advocare sale yesterday!! It was to my best friend but it still counts right?  I think I did a better job of promoting Advocare before I started selling it!  I feel like I’m pressuring people now.  I do believe in their products and hopefully that shows through with my fitness and dedication to it.  I think one of the hardest parts is the sticker shock when you first see your shopping cart on the website.  It’s a bit painful to look at.  Once I break it down to how much I’m actually spending per day it’s really not that bad.  For my breakfast, which is a meal replacement shake and spark it cost’s $4.46 per day. One grande caramel latte at Starbucks is $4.45, so that doesn’t even include the cost of something to eat too!  Plus the health benefits and calories are a way better option with an Advocare breakfast!!
