Workout and Word of the Day #10

Hello My Friends!

Today I had no phone and no internet until after 6 pm.  I cannot remember the last time that happened.  I have always at least had one or the other and when you have one you can pretty easily get the other.

It ended up being a nice break from social media and the outside world.  When it came time to hit the gym I was super thankful that I still had my Spotify premium account activated.  I was able to listen to my music while I did my workout.

Yesterday, I started taking whey protein before my workout and I think it is helping me a lot energy wise.  For the past several months, I have been working out in a fasted state and I know that is not the best approach if I want to build muscle.

Workout of the Day:  Whole Body + Cardio & Hiit

Complete 2 x 20 of each exercise

  • Reverse Lunge
  • Butt Lift
  • Calf Raise
  • Bent-over row
  • Karate Curl
  • Leg Lift
  • Penguin
  • Ball small situp

Today I really focused on activating the muscles I was working on rather than just going through the motion.  I think that it has been a lot more effective than what I used to do.  I know that I have been guilty of going through the motions just to get it done and it feels good to know that I am focusing on proper form.

Word of the Day:

cumulate– verb

  1. To gather or pile in a heap
  2. To combine into one
  3. To build up by addition of another material

I have been enjoying my workouts a lot lately especially these past two days.  I am also happy about the fact that not having coffee has not negatively affected my performance.  I think the next step is going to be to dial in my nutrition again.

I hope you had a great day today.  I will see you tomorrow!!!

❤ Alana

    1. I hope you will feel better soon. Have you tried soaking it in epsom salt? That always helps me get some relief from most ailments. Great job on working around the discomfort and staying active. ❤
