Sometimes we focus too much on the things that are not going good for us that we forget to be grateful for the things that we do have.
Thought, I’d throw it out there since that was exactly what I have been focusing on lately. Just like yesterday when I wrote about how I failed again on the eating department instead of emphasizing more the fact that I have been working out consistently and gaining amazing strength in the process.
Also, on top of that, my husband sent for me to go get a massage the other day and I did after a few reminders and convincing on his part (I rarely go for one). It made me feel amazing afterwards, but that too was lost in my negative mind (tsk, tsk,tsk).
I realized my actions are my own choices and decisions. What I’d chose to do is what I chose to do and there’s not much I can do to change it once the action has taken place. I just have to own it, move on and try to do better the next time. I know I can’t control that outcome anymore once it happened but what I can control are things that are yet to come. And instead of reeling from my past mistakes, I can instead take extra 2 steps forward to override what I had done wrong.
And that is exactly what I plan to do!
Since weekend is once again upon us, and for me that means a little bit of leeway in terms of eating and working out. I decided that if I am going to eat like I don’t care I should at least put in the effort to help my body burn it off.
My workout training only suggested 4 training days this week but I already exceeded that by working out everyday of this week so far. I also am planning to workout this Saturday plus the challenges and then give myself Sunday to fully recover and be ready for the coming new week.
Early Morning: glass of water with acv, cup of coffee
Breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled, 3 pcs. bacon
Lunch: Leftover chicken with salad
Snack: banana, handful of roasted almonds
Dinner: Leftover beef on brown rice, mandarin orange
It’s the 4th training day of Rock Solid program for week 3, the Beach Body.
Goblet Squats: 3 sets/ 12, 10, 8 reps, 30 lbs, 35 lbs, & 44 lbs for 4 reps on the 3rd set (my arms burned out halfway my reps with the 44 lbs so I switched back down to 35 lbs to finish it off)
High Swings: 3 sets/ 15 reps each/ 44 lbs
Back lunges: (holding mine low on my side) 3 sets/ 12, 10, 9 reps each/ 35 lbs.
Suspension rows: (used our rings) 3 sets/ 10 reps
High pulls: 3 sets/ 8, 7, 6 reps/ 30 lbs.
Ab roller: 3 sets/ 12, 10, 8 reps
Day 8 of 21 days Kettlebell Press Challenge
-5 sets/ 3 reps each with 20 lbs.
-3 sets/ 1 rep each with 25 lbs.
I tried pressing with 25 lbs for 3 reps and did it successfully with my right arm but not with my left. I kept going though but did push press instead on my left.
Day 8 of 25 days Plank challenge
-Plank for 50 seconds
It’s starting to get more challenging, I tell yeah! I’m beginning to break out sweat while holding the plank position, lol!
All in all, I had a great successful workout week! I wouldn’t change it for anything!
Stay tuned for week 4 of my 6 Weeks to Shred!
