On working out today and tomorrow
I’m always amazed at how working out can turn my mood around 180 degrees. I had an awful and moody day, but after I worked out I felt 100% better! I actually enjoy working out. Why is it so hard for me to motivate myself to workout sometimes then? Tomorrow I’m waking up early. I’m nervous I’m going to want to skip it because I’ll be tired. I know I am going to...
Proposed workout routine
Any feedback is welcome!! M-W-F: Cardio (Treadmill 30 minutes or 30 Day Shred), Stretching T-R: Cardio (15 minutes, less intense) 30 minutes strength training full body Sa-Su: Rest or Yoga I’m so unsure of this routine… I don’t really know what I’m doing I just know I have to try something.
Here's the deal
I think I’ve already said this… Maybe I’m restating it for my own benefit to help harden my resolve. It comes down to me. Not anyone else being there for me, supporting me, helping me or doing anything with me. I have to be the one to do it. It doesn’t matter if I don’t want to. It doesn’t matter if I’m too tired or lazy or busy. It doesn’t...
Do you eat or drink before you run/work out in the morning?
Decision... And it feels right....
I’ve decided to start running in the morning. I don’t quite look forward to it but I know that when I get home from my internship I am beat and have a hard enough time getting dinner cooked and homework done. I’m going to start tomorrow, depending on how late I get to bed, or Saturday. I’m excited and not at the same time, haha.
How do you guys do it?!
I was up at 7. I showered, ate, drank a cup o joe, and talked to my mom on the phone for about 10-15 minutes. I did a homework assignment that was due today. I went to my internship, had parent teacher conferences, came home, made dinner and finished my homework assignment. Now I have 30 min before bed, I’m exhausted and wondering how in the world do you guys do it?! How do you find...
I have hit a road block...
How do you go from not working out or working out sporadically at home to actually working out 5-7 days a week at the gym?
Cross Country Skiis?
Do you have to get them in concordance to your weight? I don’t think they come in my size… Would I have to get men skiis? ugh how embarrassing…
When I am on my treadmill and listening to music I dance and forget I’m on a treadmill. I almost die every time. Picture that!
Day 3 of the 208 day challenge!
Day two- sucked. No exercise and poor diet. Ice cream, two mini tootsie pops and a Reese’s peanut butter cup. Not to mention the PBJ for dinner. YUCK! Day three- complete. I did C25K week two, but I switched it up. I jogged for about 4-5 minute intervals at the end and went longer than the allotted 25 minutes. I walked/jogged for 30 minutes. Then I did about 10 minutes of stretching...
THE ANGRY THERAPIST: Post this on your bathroom... →
theangrytherapist: Take a step back. Fucking look at yourself. You are human. You are beautiful. You are so beautiful. And you can be anything. You can be everything. Do not hate everyone because someone broke your heart, or because your parents split up, or your best friend betrayed you, your father hit you, the kid down the street called you fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. Do not...
Day 1 of my 208 day countdown complete. I did C25K week 1 again. I’m going to keep doing that while I am getting in the routine. I also did about 10 minutes of stretching. I made the commitment to myself- walk everyday. No matter what! My diet wasn’t great today. Two coaches’s oats multigrain pancakes with a tab of butter, peanut butter and syrup. All organic. Then a...
First off, I decided not to delete my tumlr. Not very important but there you have it. The problem is that half the time I think I want to blog, don’t have time then think that what I want to blog about isn’t really that big of a deal. I also worry that I’ll spend a bunch of time that I really don’t have to blog on a blog that no one will reply to anyway. This blog,...
Thinking about deleting tumblr...
Seriously… sometimes I get great motivation. Sometimes I need advice, help, a kind word and I get nothing.
I haven’t worked out in about a week. I feel awful. This is awful. I’m such a bum! :(
This week I did not do well with my exercising habits. I don’t even know what happened. I don’t. even. know. This week I will try to do better. I do have tons of homework, but I will fit in my exercise! I also plan on keeping a food journal. Do you guys think that 30 minutes of C25K 4-5 times a week is enough exercise? I think I’ll add in some pushups and sit ups, but...
