Week 3 – Friday through Sunday

 

Bc of the stiff neck I previously mentioned I decided not to do deadlifts on Friday. Stayed in and did a yoga video in the morning. rushed through a crazy work day with added stress from dad’s health insurance. Spouse wasn’t able to get out of work until 7ish so we didn’t make it up to the house until 10:30.

 

We ended up staying up until 4am fri and sat haha oops. but we were sleeping in until 11 so not too bad sleepwise. Spouse and I made eggs and bacon two mornings for bfast. and a vegetarian chili with brown rice for dinner (+ a pan of ground beef for those who wanted). The chili and fixins lasted for brunch the next day.

We hiked a 1700ft elevation “mountain” on Saturday afternoon and it was lovely and hard and tiring. I was dying for coffee by the end.

 

Sunday was lots of campfire sitting, board game playing and titanic watching.

 

week 3 scores!

workouts: 3/5

walk: 0/5

restaurant food: 4/3

yoga: 48/50

 

a bit of a crazy week with work travel and a weekend away so didn’t get the scores I wanted.

As long as it's a good sore. In which case do more!

 

If it's a bad sore.. Do less!

I'd ask for a livestream, but I'm gonna be at Disneyland and might get yelled at for yelling at my phone.

I think that might depend on what you're yelling..

 

 

Just make sure you do it during NFL Football hours, and no one will even blink.

i still think about it and I deleted it last saturday... but i'm not thinking about it as much as I was when playing. games that move forward without you being logged in are just too stressful for me!

yoga: 40

 

Week 4 – Saturday

 

Took the pup to the vet and unfortunately did get back great news. some arthritis, mis-aligned discs, and a heart murmur. We treated her to a new toy and some glucosamine treats.

 

Made some eggs, cheese, and broccoli for bfast before heading out to see rapton’s PL meet! We missed the squats but got there just in time to see her first bench attempt! Stayed until after her deadlifts were done and hulk-smashed. Definitely lit the warrior fire in me.

 

Went grocery shopping and got chipotle for dinner. cleaned up the apartment a bit and then went to a friends house (with the pup!).

 

workouts: 4/5

walk: 0/5

restaurant food: 2

yoga: 40

 

Week 4 – Sunday

 

went for a 50 minute trail walk with some friends. Not sure if I should count that as my walk or my 5th workout… maybe half a workout and the full points for a walk.

welcome_fall.gif

went out for late lunch afterwards and then shopping. snagged a new fall coat! Went home and prepped an egg bake for breakfasts, SO folded most of the laundry and did dishes.

 

Didn’t get everything done that I wanted to (TY cards, uploading wedding photos, pedicure) but we had a good weekend nevertheless.

 

week 4 scores!

workouts: 4.5/5

walk: 5/5

restaurant food: 3

yoga: 40

 

the plan results

10/9: weights; bfast prep; laundry; yoga (5m)

10/10: running; yoga (15m); TY cards

10/11: circuit; yoga (15m); TY cards

10/12: weights; yoga (5m); walk; trip planning with friends

10/13: yoga (10m); groceries; vet appt; spectate raptron’s meet; review wedding photos

10/14: TY cards; meal prep; trail walk; pedicure

 

fairly good challenge. found out i didn't want to do the workout plan I was on, came back to the barbell, and started up a bit of running again in prep for 5K training. i had a TON of fun with friends but didn't get as much adulting done as I feel I should've. should be a fairly less jam-packed next few weeks and I might want to set aside more at-home time. I really want to get the thank you cards done and some photos uploaded!

Sorry about the puppers :(  Hope the glucosamine helps!

 

Also, yay warrior fire! And new fall coat! (I love coats, boots and hats, but hardly ever get to wear them lol) Good weekend, indeed :D
