Diet was good today. A little higher in carbs today (110g) for the tire workout tonight. I have a feeling they are going to come in handy very fast. Protein was up there (200g) and guess what, I HAD NO PEANUT BUTTER TODAY! I know its fucking weird.
So I know this week looks a little retarded, but I wanted to try lifting 6 days a week again. I was doing it for a couple weeks and it felt really good. So one light and one heavy day for each muscle group, plus two days for tires/outdoor and cardio after weight days.
I continued this workout log a little longer due to school starting next week. I’m schedule each day for a workout until next wednesday and thursday which are my two days off.
I’ll be making up a schedule just for next week to finish it off till sunday, then in comes my cross fit and tire flipping work outs in full swing.
I will be working out 5 days a week instead of 6, and there will be only one day of lifting like I’m doing now which would be a full body day. Every other day will be either cross fit, tire flipping/bleachers/sprints, or rest. This will be an 8 week routine till it starts to get colder out and then it will be time for new routine!
So that is the plan from here till the end of Octoberish. 🙂 I’m not sure what I’ll do from there, either go back to regular lifting or continue with crossfit, it depends. But I am asking for a chin bar for christmas! >: |
Hopefully I’m not limping into school 😉
Also I will be adding a few new daily things, such as the daily exercise and daily music clip depending on my workout that day. I thought it would be a little fun!
31st/Monday – Tire Workout 1
Under 40 minutes:
150 overhead tire flips
150 tire flips
150 tire press and throws
150 tire squats
100 ladder runs
100 squat jumps
YEAHHH yeah! Okay so it wasn’t under 40 minutes, more like 45, but it was better than my other tire workout last week. AND I got my HR up like crazy and kept it there. I went as fast as I could. It was cool that my parents watched me do the whole thing because they helped me keep count of things and also to see what I did exactly. They made fun of me as usually:
“You’ll be able to beat up your boyfriend” “Whats that beeping noise (my HR monitor flipping out), is it time to eat again?” etc
The weather was beautiful tonight: cool out and sunny but I was sweating like crazy. The overhead tire flips really wear me out and I get a little dizzy so I use two tires instead of one back and forth. I almost wanted to puke.
Tomorrow is a very early workout since I’m taking a day trip to cape to see my grandparents. It is always a very long workout, about 1 hour and a half roughly. I’ll update either tomorrow right after my workout if I have time, or I’ll copy it into my touch and update later.
Total Time: 44:53 minutes
Total Cals: 520 cals
Max HR: 172 bpm (93%)
Avg HR: 148 bpm (80%)
Tuesday – Day Off
You know the saying, “it rains, it pours”? Well it sure did pour shit all day. Now I know we are all entitled to have bad days but to be honest, it was kind of like taking punches on the chin over and over and over. I haven’t had a good August whether its money issues, family issues or just having total lack of luck, it sucked. Monday night I didn’t get to bed till about 2am because so many things were running in head and also the coffee I had earlier in the day probably didn’t help either. My diet was under the cals and I ate at weird times. We went to the Cape for the day to see my sick grandmother. I tried to remind myself that if I worked out I would feel better.
But I had a smashing headache and all I wanted to do was sleep. I was mentally and physically tired of arguing with people, feeling negative, overwhelmed, stressed out and stretched pretty thin. So I went to bed pretty early. There. Theres my day off. NOW CAN I GET ON WITH MY WORKOUTS?
Nope, not yet! I don’t have a vehicle. But not too worry because I’m great at improvising!
Wednesday – Tire workout 2
Wednesday and Thursday will have to be improvised work out routines. This will push my creativity a little more to burn those cals work out till I want to puke! Again I worked with the tires but this workout was a little different.
40 Minutes or Under:
40 assisted body weight pull ups
200 Tire Flips
100 Side Jumps on/off tire
100 Backward jumps on/off tire
100 20” step ups with gallon of water
100 tire press & throws
50 double crunches
Total Time: 37:09 minutes
Total Cals: 422 cals
Max HR: 175 bpm
Avg HR: 150 bpm
Damn, I was pretty proud of myself. I woke up feeling a little better, but still dreading to get out of my bed. Whatever, we all have to get over it right? Right. So after a rough start to the day with more money issues, I sat down and got an outdoor workout together. I found a funny place to do the assisted pull ups. It was a metal pole on my car garage. But since it is not nearly tall enough to do a regular pull up, I just put my ankles in the dirt, hung and lifted up like a regular pullup. I felt it, it was awesome. It felt easier than I thought it would, but I guess the real test is doing a real pull up.
I got it done pretty quickly, and my Average HR was the highest it has been in a while, so I was pretty happy with the workout.
My diet has been on par, maybe a little low on cals, but I’m sure with 3 more meals I’ll get that right in.
Tomorrow is another outdoor workout. I’m not sure what its going to be yet since I have to be a little more creative. I might have a vehicle for tomorrow..MIGHT. So if I do I will head to the gym to do some weights or something.
