I’ve been off track for a while and it’s time I get back on it. I’ve been getting at least 10,000 steps a day and doing my T25 religiously, and even attending yoga a couple of times a week.
So with the being active part I’m doing pretty well. I still need to get my steps back up to 15,000 at least. However, the making healthy food choices or even just sticking to serving sizes I have been awful. I know that when I track every thing I eat and plan why I’m going to eat I do so much better. And, knowing this you’d think I’d stick to that, however that hasn’t been the case. So here it is my way to e held accountable. It’s time to get my butt back on track when it comes to eating healthy and reasonable amounts of food.
Game 2 of the Championships tonight and the Fish are up 1-0 in the series. Go Fish!
Our local summer college league team is number 1 in the league and today starts the championship series. It’s not really a good night for baseball, it’s only a matter of minutes before the sky opens up with the mother of all rain storms but hey I’ll enjoy what they play of the game.
I mean it could have something to do with the food I’ve been eating. Pizza chocolate chip cookies. I did eat salad though. Hmmm I’m thinking I’ll be doing a run tonight to help burn these unnecessary calories I consumed. Although, they were really tasty calories.
My knee has been acting up a bit the last few days. Luckily it is getting a bit of a rest this weekend. Yoga today and yoga tomorrow along with vacuuming the house so it’s ready for Open House tomorrow. Here’s hoping by Monday it’s feeling back to its normal self.
Today was the completion of Week 1 of the Gamma Cycle. And, I’m not going to say it was easy by any means, but I’m also proud to say I completed it. It was definitely some of the hardest 25 minutes of working out I’ve done, but I was able to do it, and even nailed some of it.
If you’re wondering if the program works well I can tell you this 11 weeks ago I would of never come close to making it through the first 5 minutes of any of these work outs. And, well I not only made it trough them but I was doing it and keeping up with them. So yes the program works. I’m getting stronger and fitter every day. I even did some of the real moves instead of the modified versions. That’s something I never thought I’d be able to say that. Thanks Shaun T and Focus T25!
Today has been a complete waste of a day. I’ve been loafing around. I had to force myself to workout at 3 today, because I had done absolutely nothing all day. Well, I read a book but for being active that I was definitely not.
I’ve been running around and doing some errands so that’ll help with my activity level today. And, well now it’s time for some baseball. Only 2 more games after this and then it’s playoff time.
I did day 2 of the Gamma Cycle, and well let’s just say Shaun T ain’t playing around when he says this cycle’s focus is strength.
Yikes! 3 of the 4 videos in this cycle use hand weights/resistance bands. And, well for all if you out there my strength is pretty crappy. Push-ups, yeah I’m doing them in a table top position, planks, well with the help if T25 I’m now able to hold a modified plank for a minute, but anyway you can see strength not my strong suit. Although, I have a feeling after this cycle I may be somewhat improved in that area.
However I was hurting today. I made it through the workout but my arms and shoulders were screaming at times, and I’m positive that tomorrow I’ll be feeling the affects of this latest round if Shaun T torture. But hey stronger fitter me I’m all for it.
