Sad to say I didn’t push play today. ): Last night I didn’t sleep well, so when the alarm went off this morning I hit snooze and went back to sleep for another hour. Today was supposed to be Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs. I should have been smart and at least did the abs workout this morning, but I didn’t think of it until I was driving home from work.
Just got home and it’s 11 at night and almost bed time, so it’s not happening tonight. But! I’ll tack on abs for tomorrow’s workout, and just get up early Monday and do pure Cardio. It’ll be good to get all caught up again.
Anyway! That’s all for now. Good night, followers!
Cardio Power and Resistance today! (I think.) Best part was that I didn’t have to take a break until about the third round of the warm up, which is some definite improvement! I look forward to the day where I don’t have to take a break through the warm up at all… though with my luck that’ll probably happen the last day of month 1. xD BUT THAT’S OKAY BECAUSE I’D STILL HAVE ACCOMPLISHED IT. WHOO.
Anywho. Second day of reaching my nutrition limit! This is so exciting. I feel like I have more energy again, especially during my workouts, which is fantastic! Speaking of food, I’m hungry again. But it’s 10 pm so I probably shouldn’t be eating… merp.
It just occured to me that I forgot to post yesterday!
2/19/2014 (Post for 2/18/2014)
Fit test! At first I was really nervous about it, but that quickly disappeared after the first two moves! I showed a lot of improvement, which I’m really excited about! Don’t really have time to post the scores now, but I’ll definitely do it at some point this week!
Also, a small achievement, I finally managed to get near my calorie goal yesterday! My goal is around 2000-2200, and I think I managed 1850? Still not quite there, but definitely getting better. Whoo!
Anywho, time to get ready for school, so I’ll be back later to post today’s accountability.
Rest daaaaaaaaaayyyy! Thank goodness! Though considering I was mostly at school all day, it’s really not a rest day. xD Tomorrow’s the fit test again, and I’m really excited/nervous for it! Excited because I can’t wait to see my progress, but nervous in case I didn’t make any. Ahhhhh. Guess we’ll see how this goes tomorrow, eh?
In other news, finally tried quinoa today! Made myself a little mexican styled dish with peppers, and black beans, and veggies and yuuuum. It was great. 8D
Oops! Almost forgot my posting for the day!
So! Today was the last day of week two! For all you Insanity doers out there, you know what that means: (a) tomorrow is rest day, and (b) fit test is Tuesday! But let’s start with today though, eh?
So today was Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs. PC went as it usually does (including a bit of improvement from last time, whoo!) but CA was something else! It was my first time doing that workout because on my previous attempts at Insanity I never made it this far. I’m definitely feeling the above work tonight though, and I’m sure the burn is going to be more intense tomorrow. No pain, no gain, eh? Though actually I’m looking forward to the next bout of Cardio Abs. Besides the burn, I quite like that workout. (:
But anyway. I’m really quite glad tomorrow is a rest day. I plan on getting up early at my usual workout time 7) even though I could sleep in till 8 that way I can make myself a decent lunch and whatnot! Still have yet to try quinoa, so that’s what I’ll be doing tomorrow morning!
Oh and guys? I was serious about the recipe thing. If it’s healthy and vegetarian, send it my way. (:
What was today, cardio and resistance? Something like that. But anyway! Today’s workout went fairly well. Again, I can feel myself getting stronger and it’s just so nice! Brings on a tiring feel for the rest of the day, but then again, what can you do? (Keep working out, of course).
Roomies went grocery shopping yesterday and picked up some quinoa! Haven’t gotten to try it yet, but I’m super stoked! Apparently it’s a really healthy way for vegetarians like myself to get protein. Whoooo. 8D If any of you have any spiffy quinoa recipes, feel free to send them my way please!
Even though it’s a “holiday”, still wasn’t slacking on workouts or anything! Today was cardio recovery, thank goodness. If it hadn’t of been, I’m not sure I would have had the motivation to get up and work out. xD But it happened! Two days to go until rest day. Yaaaaay.
Other than that, not much to put on here! Slow day in the life of me.
Cardio Circuit today! I definitely am feeling more confident through the warm up. Still have to take a break every so often, but it’s getting better! Also, those pushups are getting me every time. Instead of pushups, floor sprints, and jumping, usually I’m just going back and forth between the first two. Hopefully getting further in the program will change that! Tomorrow is recovery day, which I’m pretty excited about. Definitely need to use that time to really stretch the body.
Besides working out, I’ve been taking steps to be a little more active normally. Today instead of parking right next to work, I parked in the parking garage, giving me a five minute walk. Plus, five flights of stairs this evening when I go home! Definitely might start parking there on a daily basis, just to get a little more exercise in. Also need to find something to do tomorrow, else I’ll be home being a couch potato all day. Hmmm.
Nutrition… recipes! Feel free to send me recipes, guys! As long as their vegetarian, or ones that can easily be modified to be vegetarian. I love new foods, so throw them at me. (:
Nothing like Pure Cardio right before bed! Unfortunately I woke up late this morning, so working out had to come after getting out of class tonight. On the bright side, got me worn out and ready to sleep!
Almost didn’t do my workout today, but I did it! Today was…. I don’t even remember what it was today. Not cardio circuit….. power and resistance? Yeah, that sounds about right. On the bright side, I got my butt up and did it! And I felt stronger in comparison to last time! Whoo! Unfortunately I still had to take quite a few breaks, but less than last time. Which means progress, and that’s really motivating!
Health wise, I’ve been a pig today. Seriously, so hungry. Foooood. Oh man. Kind of hungry again.
But more tired than anything. It’s bed time.Good night, Tumblr.
