:: Day 6 - Summary ::

I starteed my kb workout at 1:25pm and thought I may be able to hit 60 mins. By the time I got to 45 mins, I was dying and I stopped. Like Joe said, one step at a time.
45s double swings 26lb
45s rest
45s single sings 18lb
45s rest
45s snatch 18lb (Joe, I watched some videos and self-taught! Need you to review it though!)
45s rest
I did three sets of this but increased work to 60s, and for the final set, increased the rest to 60 s rest. I cannot wait to acquire a HRM so i can accurately calculate calories burnt. In this msn article, it states that one can actually burn 1500 calories in a one hour workout, crazy huh? This is an awesome article about the benefits of kettlebell, specially for women. :) I feel really proud of myself.

Wonder what I use to keep track of the time? I downloaded an interval timer just for the mac, and i thought it worked wonderfullly! and its free!

Breakfast: 320 cal
1/2 cup oatmeal in organic chicken broth w/ egg white n bovril 200 cal
2 egg whites with 1 egg yolk 120 cal
I love bovril ... it reminds me of England, my mother and just all-round goodness. Yum.

Hi Jo - Just found your blog today! Sounds like you are kicking some serious kb butt! Hope it helps you win the contest! Any chance you have the link to the interval trainer for the Mac? I skimmed through the article but did not see it. Thanks! TOSP
