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.

WordPress Anniversary!

Do you know what today is?!

 

 

It’s my WordPress anniversary! How exciting. Well I would like to thank my sister for letting me know that WordPress was an excellent choice as a platform for blogging. I appreciate her, I would not have had the amazing opportunity to connect with bloggers that I have in the past 12 months.

Yesterday I worked out with my trainer and boy, I sweated. I ran for 1 minutes, then we went right into 1 minute 30 second planks, jumping jack planks(My informal description), side planks, situps of every kind. Bad punches, rope thrusts and jumping jacks in 96 degree weather. We got it in. Despite me and my chronic run in with an occasional wasp(I think they are stalking me wherever I go)  I did not complain! This is big. lol. I was so dead after this workout. I needed that. I did not bring my polar so, I have no clue what I burned or what my heart rate was.

I ended Thursday by watching the Chernobyl movie. It was cool, and very creepy. I turned on the lights and hugged Gizmo. lol. Hopefully everyone has a great weekend and thank you for journeying with me on this one year blogging span. I appreciate you all!
