Random Weekend

What a weekend!

I started out my weekend by going to a cousins birthday at a local zydeco bar/restaurant called Jax. Zydeco is a music genre that comes from Louisiana that has a fast tempo and an accordion is heavily involved in the music. They had a live band and the dance floor was packed! It was fun and I am not that talented in the dancing portion of Zydeco, but it is fun to watch and attempt. I have a video on my instagram feel free to check it out here

After that I went home and woke up the next day ready for bootcamp. No one showed up but me. The workout consisted of:

  • 45 second rope thrusts
  • 45 second jumping jacks w/ rope
  • 45 second box jumps
  • 45 seconds high knees
  • 45 second 5 part sprint/runs 150 yards

Post Workout!

3 rounds of this in the hot, and humid sun and I was beat! Also, a funny side note. We were at a field and I had hydrated prior to me working out. The problem is, my bladder is on the weaker side, and I had to GO! I had to stop on my second round to take care of this. My trainer was concerned I didn’t have any toilet paper and I was like I would just have to make due. I take showers after I workout. LOL.

After that I got a call from a friend in Austin inviting me to a boat party. I thought why not. So I packed Gizmo up and made the 3 hour trek to A town! The boat party was fun. Gizmo likes a house environment and it was good to see my friend.

Passenger seat side!

I packed up on Sunday made the trek back. I studied for about 2 hours and read the 1st chapter for school (I am trying to be studious), and ended the night watching the VMA’s. Miley Cyrus was a disaster if you want my honest opinion. To end the blog on a good note here is a quote or a motivational paragraph! It gave me life, I hope it gives you some too!

Workout Struggle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What workout isn’t a struggle?

On Tuesday I absolutely struggled. I threw up, I felt queasy, I kept quitting. I was disappointed in myself. I tend to go through this once a month. It was all due to my diet the past weekend. Eating the right kind of foods absolutely pays off. Well, on the weekend I ate fried chicken and had a coke, and on Sunday my only option in the hospital(Where my niece was being born) was McDonalds. So of course, I struggled something serious. Here was my workout:

Warm Up: 15 minute ,jog 15 hills

Workout:

  • 10 box jumps 10 lunges
  • 30 jump squats
  • 10 squats with 25lb weights in each hand
  • 10 lunges on an incline with 25lb weight
  • rope thrusts with 15 squats

This workout was intended to be repeated for 3 rounds, and I only  made it to one. Hopefully today’s workout can be conquered and I can pick up my pride and ego off the ground. I am not going to let this one bad day discourage me. There are going to be more highs in workout sessions than lows. After all, the workouts are meant to be challenging.  If you aren’t feeling challenged then, you might not be as productive in your workouts as you could be. Today I will strive to do my best.
