07 February 2015

So today is my last day here in Cali! I am not going away forever...going to Idaho to help out with my grandpa and step grandma who has dementia. My grandpa has a cancerous tumor on his kidney and he goes in for surgery on the 11th so me, my mom and my youngest daughter are flying up there to help him out and such. They are just going to completely remove the kidney. Hopefully it will be a somewhat relaxing break from the stress here lol! The great thing about it as well is that it SHOULD help me with my eating. I won't have access to just snacking whenever I want and they eat more on a schedule so it should help me out a lot.

So I won't be able to really journal while there since I am unsure if they have wifi. If they do, then I should be able to...if not, then I will just be logging food and exercise. So yeah...guess I am going to go and make sure I have everything needed for this trip.

Yesterday was bad...so much more bad than when I initially posted. I binged...not as bad as I have done in the past but I did. I am ashamed of this...but you know...I think I got it out of my system so I can keep on rolling so to speak. It's not my proudest moment, but even just admitting it here...I am holding myself accountable. I appreciate those who gave me those encouraging words yesterday. I just wish it turned out better.

I am going to try to make today better though. I don't feel well but I am determined to try. I will not let yesterday completely defeat me. I also think I am going to invest in getting a scale like what they have in the doctor's office. I feel like I can't trust the scale I have. I hope I can find one for a decent price. Anyhow...I am going to try and get this day started. Wish me luck...I need all the encouragement I could possibly get. @_@

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: I managed to get through the Speed 1.0. I feel somewhat better though I know I can work a little harder. I am okay with it though. My quads are pretty sore from my Tuesday workout but it's a good sore. I honestly can't wait to finally be able to join a gym and start lifting. :)

Plank: 60 second planks are sooo hard. I had to put my knees down at 38 seconds. :( I still not 100% so I kind of expected this but I still did it and that I can be proud of. I didn't just give in.

So I have been awake since 5 am today. I am kind of tired...but at the same time, I suppose this forces me to start getting up early like I want. So, it's twofold lol! Anyhow, I am feeling pretty good and very proud that I worked out last night. I almost thought that I wouldn't be able to but pushed through it and felt surprisingly better. At the moment, I am battling whether I want to track or not. I will probably end up doing it because it holds me accountable. When I don't, it's because I am ashamed and don't want that judgment...but you know...I need to hold myself accountable so I will make myself.

Woke up today...not feeling very well. Still not feeling very well but I am going to push through it and still get my workout in. I have to push through it. I don't feel very prepared for my trip to Idaho and just...yeah. I am not sure what is going on with me other than I know I am getting closer to TOM. It might be the flu running its course through the house. Either way...I am not a happy camper right now.

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: I didn't push myself as hard but just enough to where I still felt the burn. I took frequent breaks whenever I started feeling queasy. Overall, I think I did well. Total Body Circuit is one that is a little more difficult for me and I can't seem to remember the modifications all the time so then it's me waiting to see the mod. Anyway, I am still proud of myself for doing it. Next is to tackle Kettlebells.

Plank: The dreaded 60 second plank. I tried really hard. I managed to have my knees up until I hit the 15 seconds left mark. I had to put them down then for the rest of the duration. I am proud that I managed for that long but just need to keep trying. :)

Kettlebell: Well...I have found that the 5 lb kettlebell is way to light...but I think I am finally getting the Clean done properly. I am going to look up the video again and watch it in hopes of double checking. Of course, it would be nice to have a professional but until I can afford that...this way will have to do lol. I think I might have pushed myself a bit too hard though. I am really shaky.

Today has been a tad slow for me. I had planned on waking up early and doing my workout first thing but that did not workout. Piper kept me up till like 2 am so I ended up sleeping in. So I have decided that if finances workout the way I would like, then I want to join a gym and hire a personal trainer for 5 weeks to learn how to do the lifting. I am pretty motivated honestly. Last night, we had this family dinner and my younger sister and her bf (that don't live with me) came over. Her bf goes to the gym and such and does kettlebells so I asked him for help with the Cleans. He managed to find something online that basically showed me exactly what I was doing wrong so when I do Kettlebells tomorrow, I am going to use the lighter weight and focus on getting the form right.

Man...at times I feel like I have so many dreams and goals that it will overwhelm me...but I think I just need to sit down and write them out before putting them where they belong, like short term vs long term. Maybe I will do that tonight. I dunno...anyhow, I am off to finish this day strong!

Daily Summary
*Focus T25: Cardio was fun. I made sure I really pushed myself. I am glad for it. I just need to keep pushing myself to my limit with each workout. I am honestly glad I switched over to this particular program because I have already noticed great results AND, with the high blood pressure, the cardio element to each workout is great for heart health and such. :)

Plank: 45 second plank again. I keep telling myself that I can do it but today, I really focused in on my form and making sure it was right. Man...it was right and I can definitely feel it. I am glad I was able to push through it.
