Theodora 1.0 was the overweight, unhappy girl that lived in DC. Theodora 1.5 was the overweight-but-otherwise-happy girl who was chasing her dreams in NYC. Theodora 2.0 is the in-awesome-shape-exuberantly-happy girl with a little fat left on her stomach. Theodora 2.5 is going be KICK ASS. I’m trying to tone up a little bit more all over.
I started working out with Joel again this morning! He redid all of my measurements, so I know where I’m starting off from, and he also pinched me with these fat calipers.Â
The workout from what I can remember:
- alternating lunges
- one-arm rows
- chest presses
- seated squats
There was more, but I don’t remember it all. I also did the longest eight minutes of my life on the treadmill. They were INCREDIBLY high-intensity intervals—by the end, I thought I was going to pass out or throw up. We started off with two minutes of jogging at 5.5 at an 8.0 incline. For the next six minutes of hell, I ran at 6.5 for twenty seconds and rested for ten seconds. O. M. G.Â
He’s going to take the weekend to devise my whole plan based on the assessment he did this morning, and on Wednesday, I’ll have more information for y’all on what it will include and possibly my before photos. He says I’m in great shape now, but that I will look “smoking hot” by the time we’re done..
He had me roll up my shirt for my before photo, and while I definitely sucked in, I was pretty confident. Sure, I’m trying to lose some of the fat on the side of my stomach, but I have an awesome strong body now and I’m proud of how far I’ve come!Â
As usual, I’m in desperate need of grocery shopping, so I hit up Dunkin’ Donuts for one of the veggie flatbreads and an iced coffee:
