I’m officially starting on Monday, but I wanted to work out today. So I’m doing the workout slated for Friday (doesn’t matter, really, I’m just feeling obsessive compulsive)!
How I’m feeling: Pretty ok, but I had to stop halfway. :| The weather is really muggy so it’s hard to breathe. Don’t wanna risk anything before I’ve even begun!
Oh, HELP PLEASE! I wanna do P90X in the gym (i.e., without the aid of Tony Horton - I can’t very well watch him while everyone else is looking, can I?). Where can I find workout aids with reps or at least time?
I was supposed to work out, but yeah. Also my back is aching! I am sitting the rest of today out. Literally.
Side question: how many calories does standing up burn?
Yup, still keeping the workout thing going.
Performed 2 circuits with 16 minutes of cardio over half an hour. Tomorrow I plan to go 4 circuits with no cardio, and then cardio on Wednesday. Guh
Employed some circuit training over at the gym today, and clocked around 40 minutes start to finish.
I have to admit I was inspired by something I was reading — I love when the characters of a story are physically active. It makes me wanna be active, too, because I have a funny way of relating to book characters. Not to mention I kind of end up having book crushes on the guys they like… :| Sad, but true. Also effective.
So my cycle was Jillian Michaels inspired: cardio, strength, core x 3. I did spend more time on cardio, though, because I want to improve my endurance. I wanna do this twice a week!
LATER: I shall set goals :)
Lately school’s been a killer. I’ve been arriving home absolutely exhausted, and I haven’t been eating right… Horrible. But I wanna get some exercise in, so I’m trying for at least 10 minutes on the elliptical every day. Of course I expect this to go higher, but right now I just don’t have the time or energy. :(
Ugh. I did maybe the first 15 minutes then I gave up. It’s actually still playing in the background right now. Maybe I’ll get back to it. WHAT IS THIS LAZINESS
 I got to around half. I’m satisfied because I haven’t worked out in a while, plus I have to run some errands in half an hour.
I really needed the exercise!! I got up today feeling really gross: I hadn’t exercised since the 4th, I have a killer exam today that I’ve been cramming for all night, and, well, I’m expecting shark week any day now.
So when ginny-getting-skinny messaged me “everything” in response to something I’d reblogged days ago, I was more than happy to oblige. It took just a couple of minutes but I’m so reinvigorated! Thanks girl!!!
By the way, I have not abandoned this blog. I currently weigh in at 130 lbs, that’s 6 lbs lighter than when I started in October. Granted, I lost all that weight from October to November, but I’m just happy I didn’t gain any over the holidays. I’m ready to start anew! My goal is to lose at least 10 pounds by the end of March.
First workout of 2012! Woo!
Okay, I’ll admit that after 2 or 3 odd weeks of not exercising, Phase 1 was a bit of a challenge. Even so, I felt kind of lame doing the exercises without any resistance. (HAHA as if I would have lasted WITH resistance! I kid myself.) The video had this whole 80s or 90s aerobics vibe to it. Or was I really doing 90s aerobics? I don’t know! First impression: I enjoyed Jillian Michaels better, and even that’s kind of boring.
ANYWAY. It’s good to be back! I ate healthy today and everything! Woo this is it!
The holidays have been brutal - I’ve done terribly in terms of eating/exerxising/being productive in any way shape or form.
2012 is the year that changes! This year my resolution is to do things with clear end goals in mind, not just because I want to do them at that moment. Clear thinking = clear decisions :)
To all my superwomen who have been doing something great for others and for themselves, cheers! This is our year!
For the record, I worked out on the 15th. Did some plyo!
But I did eat and drink quite a lot in between so I don’t know what good that did me :|
Today I felt kind of weak (considering I hadn’t properly worked out in a week and a half) so I did a lot of warmups from a bunch of exercise vids with the hope that I’d feel strong enough to go on. But no :| So is that cardio? I did some abs/core afterwards, and a few halfhearted arm and leg exercises.
Help me! I don’t wanna lose all the progress I’ve made. What can I do to stay motivated throughout the holidays?
