Playing on the pull up bar this morning I got 5 consecutive pull ups and was just like.. Damn.. So I went balls to the wall and didn't use a band for this workout! During, Deb kept saying 'look at that guys, no band! rx!' and she suggested if we needed we take one round to rest when our reps are getting too low. I did this, but I did two pull ups and then rested so I didn't get 0 reps for any of the rounds. I am super excited, it would be hard not to be. I never thought these things were in my grasp, ever. It's downright amazing what people can do when they focus all of their energy on it. Coach Your Mind is a blog that posts incredible inspirational thoughts and videos. A recent one told a story about a trainer holding a man underwater, and then telling him that only when he wants success as badly as he wanted to breathe will he ever fully reach his goals. I feel like I've reached that point. I want it, I crave it and I love it.

Here are a couple of my favorite videos:


  1. Rock on with the pullups! Super-cool!

  2. That's a great blog - added to my reader! :)

    I'm almost embarrassed to post this, but my favourite motivational video on youtube is the Rocky 3 montage, where he's training with with Apollo. It's the music, it gets me!

  3. You're kicking ass and taking names! Keep it up :)

  4. Awesome! Can't wait till I get my pull-ups dialed in like that!

  5. Way to go on the pullups! Just walk away from that band and never look back!!

  6. Dang girl - you are rocking it! I can't do a pull up to save my life. LOL
