Workout and Word of the Day #59

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

Do you ever struggle with motivation?  How do you get past it and keep moving forward towards your goals?  Please comment below to share your tips and tricks!

I got through 12 solid weeks of training and I feel so accomplished, but I noticed that around week #10/12 I started to feel less motivated and by Friday of last week it felt like I hit a wall.

I am so proud of the fact that I have managed to stay consistent even on those days when I could barely move.  This is a good time for me to reflect and take stock.  A lot changed in the past 2 weeks.  My Grandma Alice passed away.  I started a new internship / quarter of school.  AND I started a new full-time remote job where I run an online business.  Additionally, I am most likely moving back to my home town temporarily before making a bigger move and that also adds in additional stress.  Historically, I have been awful with dealing with stress and this is the best that I have ever handled it.

This morning, I switched things up!  We went for a beautiful hike and then grilled steaks and broccoli.  After that we got matcha smoothies and a shot of wheat-grass (instead of coffee).  I warmed up with a 15 minute yoga with bands workout and then I headed to the gym before I could justify skipping!

Workout of the Day: Leg Day / Booty

3 x 15

  • 5 Sumo Box Squats to Complete Sit
  • 5 Sumo Box Squats w/ Booty Tap
  • 5 Sumo Jump Squats

3 x 10 Single leg RDL (on leg on the bench

  • 15 Pulsing Goblet Squats

Super set | 3 x 8

  • 3 x 8 Bulgarian Split Squat
  • 8 Jumping Bulgarian Split Squats

It was refreshing to learn some new exercises.  I was nervous about the jumping bulgarian split squats because I used to struggle with just bodyweight bulgarian split squats not that long ago.  I am so thankful for muscle memory and the fact that practice and dedication pays off.

Today’s Word of the Day is:

assiduity- noun

  1. Constant or close application or effort; diligence; industry.

Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day!  Enjoy these last few days of April!
