17 April 2015

Today has been another low-key day. Been a bit sluggish getting everything going but I managed both my workouts today! I didn't think I would be able to but I did! Piper's allergies are acting up super bad and she's all snotty and coughing and sneezing...and it's been keeping me up these last 2 days. It's not been fun. She goes into the Dr on Monday to be checked out because her cough sounded concerning last night. So, running on broken sleep and trying to stay awake until tonight. :(

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: Cardio AND Lower Focus today...holy hell it was hard! I forgot how brutal Lower Focus is. I had to stop frequently because my thighs were on fire! It didn't help that some of the moves, you do in Cardio so it made it even harder. I am proud that I did it though.

Plank: 25 second plank. It was hard because I already worked my abs hard yesterday and they are still sore. It was good though. I can definitely feel myself getting stronger.

Today hasn't been too bad honestly. A little slow and at moments, I feel a little melancholy but other than that, I feel great. I am proud of myself for working out and almost making it through a full week and I am working on getting my eating back on track. :) So it might seem silly but I had made a fitness planner for myself to track certain things and I have to say...I like seeing that I almost have a complete week finished!

I basically use my fitness planner so schedule in my workouts (like what I did) and to track my total calorie burn along with my steps. I am hoping that to continue looking at these, I will see where I need to improve and go from there. I also have a separate section for my goals and my measurement tracking, another for the workout programs I am doing (this is where I keep the Focus T25 workout schedules) and then another for various notes when I do some research...like on macros and everything.

So far, it seems to be helping to keep me motivated so I hope it continues on.

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: Ab Intervals is killer. I cannot hold a lot of the poses for too long because they are a tad awkward for me but maybe as time goes on, I can improve on this. We shall see. I otherwise enjoyed it. :)

Plank: REST DAY

Kettlebell: Starting Sunday

Today has been very rough but I am still trying to push through and catch up. My eating has suffered...but working out wise, I made sure to get it in. I am going to try harder to get my evening workouts in because I really want to achieve at least half my goal by July. So I suppose I should explain about this morning. Usually in the morning, I prepare my lunches and such. I also workout at that time. Problem with today is that my sister locked me out of the house when she left so I had to go to my mom's and hang out there until she came back. So needless to say, my routine is WAYYYYYY off and I feel like I am scrambling to catch up if that makes any sense.

Today is a mellow day for me. Been doing a lot of self-reflecting and such and trying to identify where my flaws are what needs to change. It's like, I know some of the things that need to be fixed and I am trying to start the process on that but you know, I have to take things one step at a time. I do need to spend more time away from the computer which is hard because you know, homework and such...cuz online college but I am sure I can find some kind of balance.

I've been good with my working out but I just can't stop in the middle of the week like I normally do. If I do, it's counter-productive to what I want to achieve. My desires to become a better role model for my girls are definitely there...and I have every good intention of doing that...but at the same time, I haven't truly been making very good steps. *Sigh* This is going to be an extremely long process but you know, with the loving support I gain from FatSecret, I am sure I can accomplish it. You all have been there for me when I have fallen and wanted to toss my hands up in the air and say "F*ck it all! I give up."

I'll push through...I know I can...and I will be one of those success stories I keep reading...maybe not tomorrow, or even by the end of the month, but I know that I can do it. Thank you all for believing in me when at times, I don't even believe in myself. :)

Goal for the day: Think positive thoughts and love myself. :)

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: Speed 1.0. Still my favorite workout. Not as big of a burn as I expected but I really did push myself which I am proud of. Right now, I have decided that I am going to try and go through the whole T25 program doing the mods first...and then attempt to do the real move if my knees can handle it. :)

Plank: 20 second plank. Once again, I tightened everything and though it was hard and I was shaky, I pushed through. Piper loves to lay on her belly right next to me when I do these and watch the timer count down. It's cute. :3

13 April 2015

Today has been a pretty good day so far. Yesterday's upset is yesterday's news and today is a brand new day. I did not get my kettlebell workout in or start the 14 Day Challenge workout because we had the chore of bathing the cats. They have really bad fleas and are shedding so yeah. It took 3 people to bath my male cat Zeus...that is how strong that frickin' cat is. It's crazy. Anyhow, they are not mad at me anymore and feel so nice and soft and are not scratching nearly as much. So...yeah. Needless to say, calves and ankles are a bit sore thanks to squatting in a tub of water to help bathe the animals.

Food choices were not as great yesterday but not completely unreasonable so I consider that a win. I do need to make sure to get more protein in my diet though. I did get my Focus T25 workout in yesterday along with my planking. I plan on getting at least those two done this morning before I have to leave and take a test. I suppose I should get up and clean the house and then workout. Need to leave here at 10 am and it's already nearly 9!!

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: Cardio today. While I am quite sweaty after this...I don't feel like I pushed myself quite as hard...that could also be because it's that time of the month and you know...squats don't feel too nice during that time. My core though is definitely feeling it lol!

Plank: 15 second plank. During this plank, I made sure to tighten the muscles in my legs, butt, back and core. I figure that is the point right? Plus I really do need to start rebuilding my core strength.

Yoga: INCOMPLETE
