It took me a little while to fall asleep last night, but once I was out I was out and slept through the night. I didn’t get as early of a start as I did the day before, but I did eat breakfast and get to work a little early.
I had a great time at work. Having more energy makes ALL the difference in the world. During 6th period I got to participate in the spinning class. It was nice to get a little workout in at the end of my work day.
I think I have my morning/work flow /routine under control now! Now I need to work on my midday/workout routine. Do I study now or go for a run? Should I take that class later than lift or try lifting 1st thing in the morning?
If I am honest with myself I DO need to spend a lot more time studying. I’m thinking that I need to start getting more organized with my schedule and plan out my workouts.
This evening I went to Mixxedfit which was a total BLAST!!!
Every time I try to talk myself out of a workout (especially a dance workout) I remind myself that I’m WORTH-IT!!!
I thought that I was just going to do Mixxedfit then start lifting tomorrow, but I decided that I would make the most out of my trip to the gym.
Today’s Workout: Chest/Tricep Day
3 x 12 Push-ups (not just girl push-ups… Although those are acceptable if you are just starting out.)
3 x 12 Dumbell Chest presses
3 x 12 Dumbell Chest Flys
3 x 12 Push-ups again!!! (You got this!!!)
3 x 12 Tricep Extensions
3 x 12 Tricep Kick-backs
Then at the end I took some time to stretch. The whole workout took me about 22 minutes. I am so glad that I didn’t put it off until tomorrow!!!
I am overjoyed because a year ago I had a pretty serious “gym-phobia” and I was SO daunted by resistance training. I would hire a personal trainer just so I would not have to workout in the gym by myself and feel incompetent. This year I decided that I would learn to train myself. I think so far it is going well and I want to keep this going!
Today’s Word of the Day Is:
A work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a manuscript or a design, to which one has rights and for which one may apply for a patent, copyright, trademark, etc.
How are your workouts going? Do you have a favorite go-to workout at the gym? I want to hear ALL about it!!! How about nutrition? I am still working on that aspect of my life, but am acknowledging all the progress that I have made in a short amount of time.
I have given up coffee again, but am still drinking green tea. I am also starting the get the hang of meal-prepping which has saved me a lot of time, money, and driving thru!!!
What is your nutrition like? Are you vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free? Or some other special kind of nutrition planner? I want to embrace a healthy lifestyle that goes farther than just a temporary diet. Please share your nutrition tips with me!!!
Alright, My friends! We have made through the half-way point of our week. Let’s continue going strong!!!!
Love and Blessings Always,
