Can I get a show of hands from all of you out there who might have a “small” coffee addiction…maybe Starbucks related too? I “might” be one of those people who have a “small” coffee addiction (3-5 cups a day…and I consider a venti non-fat latte from Starbucks as only a cup). Okay, maybe it is a “medium” sized addiction. But I know you other coffee drinkers out there know where I’m coming from.
For our last week of Best Body Bootcamp I made one of my goals, to only drink 2 coffee beverages a day. I saved this goal for our last week for a reason…I knew it was going to suck big time, and boy has it ever. I totally failed on the first day. I had 2 cups of coffee at home in the morning, and then I “had” (you other coffee drinkers out there understand me…right?) to have an afternoon cup. Ugggg!!
Yesterday I accomplished my goal of only 2 cups, one in the morning, and then my latte after work. I won’t lie to you; it got pretty ugly from 3-4:30 pm yesterday. I was tired and totally crashing and craving coffee. I swear to you that there was a little voice inside my head saying java, java, java over and over again. However, I persevered and prevailed!! Fist pump for me!
As for today…I won’t lie to you, it may get scary. I only had one cup this morning, and I always have 2 every morning. I should probably let you know that I’m not a morning person at all, and with only one cup in me I’m still dragging. However, I’ll be a good girl and save my other cup for a Starbucks run I will make after my son’s swimming lesson in the afternoon. Lets pray I don’t bite anyone’s head off today. Just kidding!! I’m not that bad…yet . I just realized that I sound like I did when I gave up chocolate for a month…Now there is a month I don’t want to revisit!
Enough of me griping about my lack of coffee this morning and on to the workout for Workout Wednesday!! This is a workout that will totally Wake Up those muscles in the morning without the added coffee!! If you are unsure of how to do any of the exercises, you can go to the Exercise Glossary page, and it will have links to examples of many of the exercises that I post. I have posted the link to the Oblique V-Ups below, since they are a new move that I have not posted before.
- Oblique V-Ups – If you are a beginner, just focus on lifting your legs.
