Ladylydia: Still Breathing

Recommended Posts

It has worked out okay! May want to work on sizing the logo a bit so it doesn't obscure the top links on the landing/homepage, but the design itself looks really sound. If I ever get a divorce in Springfield, I'll look you up. :)

Ugh, it's mid-way through the week and I have no ability to stay accountable to myself.

 

I made an appointment to talk to the coaching team. 

 

Hope it works out! Sometimes having bodies close by is better for keeping you to things than the online community. ^_^;;

Are you doing negatives at all?

 

No, I can do full push ups, just not very many at a time. (sets of five or six), but if i can tell it's going to take a while to get through the sets, like if I'm tired or really unmotivated.  Then I'll switch to knees so I can crank them out and get it over with.

Oooh - yeah I saw you did some full but wasn't sure if you were doing a combo of full and negatives and knee or just going from full straight back to knees.

Ok, new week, new six (seven) week challenge.  I saw someone post the other day that 90%  of a mediocre plan, is better than 60% of an amazing plan.  So, in the interest of building consistency, I've decided to take baby steps for this challenge, and just barely increase the intensity. 

 

(Feb 11th- March 31st)

 

Daily:

 

15 tricep extensions,

15 push ups (30 if from knees)

25 squats

25 side leg lifts, each side

 

Stretching/Yoga

7 glasses of water. 

 

 

Sun. Tues. Thurs--cardio: 

 1 1/2 mile walk, or 20 min interval training, or 15-20 min. circuit training, or 12 min. tabata.   (being flexible here).

 

Mon. Wed. Fri: Resistance

Second set of dailies

12-20 min. of core work.

I am sick of my own laziness and half-@$$ing this fitness thing!  My breathing was elevated just walking around the store today!  Yesterday I found I couldn't hold notes for half as long as I used to because I've lost my lung capacity.  This has become absolutely ridiculous. This afternoon,  I found myself looking at articles for how to get quick results on cardio; and it was like a bomb went off in my head:  I don't need to keep researching tips,  I know how to do this.  I have been researching health and fitness for over ten years, at this point.  I have made big mistakes and had big successes. At one point I lost over a 125 pounds, and was deadlifting above my body weight.  I was trail-running a 5k every night, and did 1000 burpees in a single week.   The fact that I've swung so far back in the other direction, losing all of that ground is infuriating.  Enough is enough!   

 

I'm scrapping the previous plan,  1. six weeks cardio and resistance 3-4 times a week.  2. drink lots of water,   3. treat my health seriously.  i'm not going to bother with some sort of complicated tracking system, I don't get a gold star when I get a certain number of points for the week,  or technically complete a task a certain way.   I get to breathe easier, I get to reclaim my strength and endurance, I get to have pictures taken of me without worrying about how a particular angle will make me look, and I get to fit into clothes that I loved and wore only a couple years ago.  I am done babying myself.   I know how to take care of my body, so it's just going to get done.   No excuses.

 

 

Warm up:

20 tricep extensions

15 single side extensions, each side

15 squats,

15 side leg lifts each side

 

4 min. dumbbell swings

 

4 min. 50 sec. each:

crunches- 20,

Side v-crunches L- 10,

Side v-crunches R- 14

ab raises- 10

 

4 min. dumbbell swings

 

4 min. 500 sec. each

pushups, from knees-17

leg raises R- 31

tricep dips- 4

leg raises L- 19

A bit sore today, but not so sore that I'm in any sort of pain.  So yesterday I did the right intensity for the first time in three years.

 

Active recovery day:   Yoga.
