makes you wonder who that woman in white is on the venga bus. 90s mysteries!

 

'tis the season for parties! i'd like to enjoy myself as much as possible. and also keep up with my routine :D

 

Exercise.

  1. 5 workouts per week
    • I’d like to aim for 3 lifting sessions and 2 cardio sessions. 4 lifting sessions would be better. duh
  2. pull up bar play 6 min/week
  3. yoga on the weekends (60 mins/week total)
    • gotta keep up that mobility on the weekends where it's currently slacking

 

Food.

  1. consume 25g fiber on weekend days
    • i do well during the week but need to focus on more fiber on the weekends
  2. plan out what days you’d like to indulge in alcohol
    • just trying to be mindful about this during party times
  3. eat out or take out less than 6x over challenge
    • with all the holiday parties I shouldn’t need to order take out or go out to eat much at all!

wow.

you are like doing REALLY well.  that is an epic routine!

what kind of cardio do you do?

thank you!! the routine has been many years in the making and it definitely has it's ups and downs.

 

for cardio, i've been recently doing just straight up running since i always seem to have a 5K on the docket. I'll do some high intensity interval training (HIIT) circuits every once in awhile if it's too cold out to run and/or i don't feel like going to the gym for the treadmill haha! i actually did a short hiit circuit last night which i'll talk about below!

 

 

Week 0 – Sunday

giphy.gif

I didn’t log all my food as it was a wonderful whirlwind day of brunching, watching moana, freezing in fenway park, eating food truck food at a brewery, and finishing moana. I did get in 13 minutes of yoga before starting all of that though so that’s a checkbox!

 

not counting that food truck food towards my 6 meals out limit (btw, thanks @raptron for letting me steal that goal from you :D). 

 

Week 0 – Monday

 

slept in after that whirlwind sunday so no morning workout. the baked oatmeal came out so good this week. pumpkin and dried crans. I did eat some unnecessaries like coffee cake, puppy chow, and mixed nuts. I also didn’t need to add tortilla chips to my chicken chili but it was delicious soooo…

I spent a minute hanging and then did this quick circuit:

What Blocky said - I'm an antisocial introvert. I organized two gatherings earlier this month that consisted of 5-10 people sitting together in the community room at the library typing on their laptops and not speaking for two hours. That's how I roll ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

But I'm all in favor of following along and vicariously enjoying your social funsies!

Now I have to tell my coworker she isn't crazy and this is a thing.  I only heard about this last week and double checked that Purina did, in fact, make Puppy Chow.

there's a lot of debate between whether it should be called puppy chow or muddy buddies. either way - it's delicious!

 

 

Week 0 – Tuesday

WycdIhK.gif

went to the gym and tried out a set of front squats, 70x8

unfortunately it hurt my knee a bit too much for comfort and I forced myself to not do more squats. It was hard. and tragic. trard.

 

incline bench

45x8

50x8

55x8x3

 

three sets of 5 burpees in between

 

one arm DB rows

15x10x10

after the first 4 sets I said why the hell am I not trying the warrior mini? so I did 10 sets. I THINK the first four sets took 3 minutes and the last 6 sets took 8mins, 6s. so I didn’t make it under 10 minutes. womp.

 

food was not great. I supplemented with 2 christmas cookies, 4 fun size milky ways, and chips with salsa. got in my head about it when I stepped on the scale this morning. might need to avoid that thing for a while for my mental health. doesn't help that sharks are still all out of whack. 

 

I did do 20 minutes of yoga last night and a minute hanging. I included a bit of split stretching inspired by @WhiteGhost. it was kind of scary actually, thinking that I might slide too far and tear something!

 

workouts: 2/5

bar hangs: 2/6

eat out: 0/6

sunday yoga: 1/5; 40/60

 

Monday PM

HIIT, bar hangs, yoga, make chicken chili

Tuesday AM

no i don't, it's the crickety knee and it's done this to me before. where it feels like it just needs to "pop" the pain it right above and on the inside of my knee cap. it usually gets better on its own lol
