Late nights, collect!
I have been making it to bed quite late this past few nights that its starting to catch up on me and I’d like to kick my behind for it! (sigh…) Well, I’m a mom after all with 3 little kids! Every night I tuck them in bed, the after hours is a constant battle for me, “should I go to bed early and get some much-needed sleep?” or “should I stay up to do something fun for myself without kids?”(anyone have the same dilemma?).
I understand the importance of getting enough sleep at night especially when you need to get up early in the morning to workout. And this morning was just another affirmation of that! I had started burning out halfway my training, though I still pushed myself all the way to the end. Ugh! I know I need to work on this.
On the bright side, I have just finished 2nd week of my 6 Weeks to Shred challenge. I can’t believe that happened so fast! And now, it’s the weekend, I am planning to enjoy it! 😉 There will be no Rock Solid workout except for the new fitness challenges I started. And food will be a little lax as well. I know how important this is for me so I can stay on track for the new week to come. 🙂
Early morning: glass of water with acv, cup of coffee
Breakfast: 2 pcs. bacon, 2 eggs scrambled, grapefruit
Snack: handful of roasted mixed nuts
Lunch: Turkey & cucumber rolls, 1 mango
Dinner: Homemade burger with no bun with chipotle & cheddar salad
Today was the 3rd training day for week 2 of Rock Solid Kettlebell program, beach body. The following routines were the ones I did.
Goblet squats: 3 sets, 12,10,8 reps, 35 lbs.
Swings: 3 sets, 15 reps, 35 lbs.
Back lunges: 3 sets, 12,10,9 reps, 35 lbs.
Suspension rows: 3 sets, 10 reps, I used our gymnastic rings
High pulls: 3 sets, 8,7,6 reps, 25 lbs
I also did push ups, ab roll outs, Janda sit ups, all part of the beach body routine. I note that I had improved a little bit on my sit ups. Where last week I had to roll on my side to get back up on the sitting position, now I can do it straight back up, not perfect, but nevertheless an improvement!
On top of my routine today, I also started 2 new fitness challenges. One is the Kettlebell Press challenge for 21 days and the 2nd one is the Plank challenge for 25 days. Both takes so little time to perform and both are areas of weakness for me that I needed to work on.
And to add a little bit of fun to the plank challenge, I invited my 2 boys (8 & 6) to join me, of course they obliged gladly! They both could use it anyway for their Tae Kwon Do. But we’ll see if they keep it up to the end. 🙂
Day 1 of 21 days Kettlebell Press challenge
-5 sets, ladder: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps, I used 20 lbs for the first 4 sets and then pushed myself to do at least 1 rep with 25 lbs. It was a struggle especially on my left but I did it without push pressing it.
Day 1 of 25 days Plank challenge
-plank for 20 seconds
Thank you for stopping by and happy weekend!
