Refuse to Sink.
I think this is a perfect way to explain how I feel right now.
My health, my life, my well being, I have taken matters into my own hands and sticking with what works for me.
I Refuse to Sink. I will Keep Swimming. I will conquer no matter how long it takes.
This week at the gym, I was really proud of myself. Here is how I did:
8 min AMRAP
5 push press – 25 lbs
6 box jumps – I am jumping on 2 plates right now,
working my way back up to the box, currently at 7″
7 KB swings 0 26 lbs
I got 5 rounds, 11 reps
6 min AMRAP
6 thrusters – 25lbs
60 single jumps
I got 3 rounds. Whoa Nelly were those jumps harder than I thought! Snuck up on me!
4 mins- as many backsquats as possible – 15 lbs – I got 60.
To say my legs were burnin would be an understatement.

I completed this in ……. get ready for it……. 18:24 !!!!!! What the frack ?!?!? I was dying, sweat dripping, eyeballs sweaty, ready to puke, but I DID IT!
Honestly, I believe it was the power of MC HAMMER , that propelled me. We had a 90’s throwback jams playlist going , along with Hammer , we had Humpty Hump, No Diggity, you get the gist. I was 2 Legit 2 Quit! It was quite the interesting class. Coach Jane always makes it fun.
I have got to tell you folks, yours truly , is back at it , back in the game, and the Swim is strong! After the past year and a half of all my various crap, I am back doing what I need to do for me .
Managing my condition, once I had a better understanding of what is going on and how my body is reacting to things with the info from my drs, was number 1.
I needed to get working out. I really just love working out in this format. I do. I feel good, I feel strong , I feel fierce. I feel freakin awesome!
In addition, adding Plexus into my daily routine has helped so much . It has really helped me so much, I cannot even put it into words. I wish I had discovered it sooner. The funny thing is, I didn’t realize how much I wear my emotions on my face. I keep hearing how people can tell I am feeling better. How crazy is that? I signed up to be a Plexus Ambassador because this product is now something I NEED, I do. I figured why now get the most of it as possible. If you are interested in learning about Plexus or want to give it a whirl – check out my site : Meg’s Plexus Site.

I feel better than I have in such a long time.
It’s taken me a while and its a long road, but I feel I am at the start of a great part of this journey!
