Today was significantly better than the other days this week. I think that the combination of awareness, acceptance, making check lists, and checking them off has helped me tremendously. I have also been writing and blogging more frequently and that has helped me gain perspective on who I am and who I would like to become. Also visiting your blogs and reading your posts has been so inspiring.
Also, EXERCISE!!! I think that my brain functions so much better when I lead an active lifestyle. I want to keep this up! Working out at home has been an adventure. It just goes to show that you can get a great workout right in the comfort of your home. Rainy days don’t matter!
Workout of the Day: HIIT + Stationary Bike
*For this workout it helps to set a timer. Set your timer for 50 seconds on with 10 seconds rest. There is a total of 12 exercises.
- Jump Lunges
- Tricep Dips
- Russian Twists
- Push-up thrusters
- High knees
- Side plank right side
- Side plank left side
- Bicycle crunches
*Repeat this circuit one more time!!!
This equipment-free workout kicked my booty!!! I think in the middle of my russian twists I said, “I’m so out of shape!” And my boyfriend said, “That’s okay.” Those two words were so comforting and encouraging in that moment. It was nice to know that I was supported and accepted.
- Stationary Bike 50 minutes = 10 miles!!!
Word of the Day:
- Relating to or using a system of numerical notation that has 16 rather than 10 as its base.
Today was more productive than most days and I feel good about that. I got an email stating that I will have my first Computer Science Quiz on Monday. Keep your fingers crossed that I will be able to make significant progress with my studies this weekend and prepare sufficiently for this quiz. In the past, I always had terrible test anxiety.
Enjoy your Friday and do something fun tonight! My man and I went for a quick stroll through the college campus then picked up yummy Thai food before picking up one of our tenants from work. I think the best part was picking out some chocolate to enjoy with my peppermint tea.
Alright, I better get back to studying. Goodnight.
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
