Guess who successfully completed 100 squats in a row this morning?

This girl!

(And yes, I totally made that picture black and white to try and disguise the fact that I’m wearing the same shirt I wore yesterday. And now I totally sabotaged my efforts by telling you all about my trick. I swear I didn’t sweat at all much yesterday which equals a totally fresh and clean shirt in my book.)

Annnyway, back to my workout recap. Yes, I did 100 squats in a row because I am a beast!

I used 65 pounds worth of weights and squatted my little heart out. To be honest, it wasn’t insanely difficult (I probably need to increase my weights), but it was definitely challenging and got me nice and sweaty in the beginning of my lower-body workout.

After 20 minutes on the elliptical, I did the following leg workout:

  • 100 squats
  • One-legged leg press (<—I like this so much more than regular leg press!)
  • Superset: Step ups + Deadlifts
  • Lunges
  • 60 second wall sit
  • Exercise ball hamstring curls

Let’s hope I’m not as sore as I was last week. I seriously waddled around like a duck all day on Thursday and Friday.


Today’s breakfast was quite similar to the breakfasts I’ve been enjoying an awful lot lately.

Another egg sandwich with two fried eggs, jelly and muenster cheese, plus two chicken breakfast sausages on the side.

Can you tell that my odd English muffin habit wreaked havoc on the bottom half of my English muffin today?

Question of the Morning

  • Do you have any current fitness, work or personal goals in place for yourself? Share!

My current fitness-related goal is to run the entire Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon in the beginning of November. On a work-related note, I hope obtain some local freelance writing opportunities with local magazines and newspapers in my new hometown.

    100 squats WITH 65 lbs?!! That is amazing!! Although I am a little intimidated, how did you go about reaching that goal?! I would love to be able to say I did that!! My overall goals for fitness are to just keep challenging myself, trying new/harder things, and to lose the last 6lbs of baby weight! (I had a little one 9 months ago 🙂 )

    My goal is to lose 3 more lbs, to get down to the weight I was in high school, for my wedding in 9 days! I have been running my butt off and doing yoga, pilates, and spin multiple times a week (well not spin, because you really need an entire week to get ready for another spin class lol) and I really hope that I can do it! I keep telling myself that I have come so far and that 3 more lbs is nothing compared to what I have already accomplished! Wish me luck! =)

    Excellent workout! When you are working on improving your shape and achieving more challenging goals, nutrition is one of the key success factors. Most nutrients are received from food, though, in order to enhance my energy I am taking nutritional supplements. One of the best I have tried is Navy Seal Formula manufactured by MGNutritionas. It gives me incredible amount of energy and pushes me harder when I train. I see positive results in my endurance and strength, my workouts are becoming much more effective.
