Week 6 Update: ChaLEAN Extreme

'Time to get extreme, baby!'

'Time to get extreme, baby!'

Yesterday, I finished my 6th week of ChaLEAN Extreme. And with this milestone, I am at the halfway point of the program! It’s flown by so far, and that’s a good thing. We all know that when you try something new, if it isn’t interesting, it seems to last forever. That’s not the case with CE, in my experience.

I am genuinely enjoying the ride so far. And while there are still days where I don’t feel like doing the workout (everyone has those), I still get up off my rear and do it. Chalene always mentions that even if you don’t feel like it, the way you feel afterwards will motivate you in the future. It’s true. It’s a great feeling to finish a workout when you’re so not in the mood! I still haven’t missed a workout since I started doing ChaLEAN Extreme.

I’m not seeing the drastic results that I was last month, but it’s not because I feel my body has plateaued. It’s because my frame is already so lean that it will always take a while for me to see big results. I think last month was basically shedding a small later of fat and replacing it with muscle. Now I’m just getting strong and starting to tone, albeit slowly.

Week 6, Part 3 Podcast

I’m about to head out the door to do this workout. Long 25 minute run today! But last week’s 20 minute episode really wasn’t that bad. And now that I have these great new shoes that feel awesome, I’m not at all worried. The 80s will carry me through!

Head to the Feedburner account to download. Although, for some reason that I can’t explain, my iTunes is downloading these now. So maybe something got fixed? I have no idea, really!

As I mentioned, I’m going to hard code the download links onto the podcasts page. I installed PodPress, thinking it would make life easier, but it hasn’t. So I’ve got to do it by hand. Thanks a lot, MightySeek!
