    Good going Brontus . Seems we both had the idea of doing Boxers Arms today! Great minds think alike eh?

    Comment


      Julian4077 Indeed! Boxer Arms is a neat little thing.

      It is just before 7am on Friday morning that I'm posting this. Forgot to post last night after the workout.

      I did 4 of the wushu stances this time
      Mabu - 30 seconds
      30 seconds rest
      Gong Bu - 30 seconds each side
      30 seconds rest
      Ban Ma Bu - 30 seconds each side
      30 seconds rest
      Du Li Bu - 30 seconds each side
      Done

      Then 30 minutes on my recumbent bike while watching Akame Ga Kill.

      I've definitely gotten better sleep so far this week, although my body keeps trying to wake me up in the early morning hours...

        Today:

        Warmup: Boxer Arms (with wrist weights)
        Workout: 3x8 TRX rows, The Final Bell Level 2 (with wrist weights), Strength & Power using 50lb stretchy band.
        Cooldown: Verity

        Breakfast was solid, same as the previous days. Lunch was a bit of a mess. Had a pb&j at noon with some juice, and then a can of soup two hours later. Dinner was my own on-the-fly sloppy joe recipe ( Ketchup, mustard, garlic, liquid smoke, salt)

        Almost didn't do anything tonight. I was feeling exhausted today, and thought about just sitting at my computer the rest of the night. If I were in my previous mental state, I probably would have, but we're going for a lifestyle change here. The next goal is to make it past 3 weeks.

          Today:

          Kicking it up a notch this week
          Warmup: Boxer Arms (with wrist weights, same amount)
          Workout: Brawler Level 2 (with wrist weights), 3x8 TRX Rows (with wrist weights), Strength & Power (with 60lb stretchy bands)
          Cooldown: Verity Level I

          Breakfast: Hashbrowns, oatmeal, orange, water
          Lunch: 3 chicken strips, Chef salad, cranberry-grape juice

          Still doing the supplements

          Over the weekend, i did a hamstring stretch workout, but didn't dedicate any other time to working out. Just rested with video games, tv/movies, and household chores. I might just do that with my weekends, so I don't burn myself out with thinking about exercise everyday, same as keeping work and life balanced.

            Forgot to post last night:

            Did 3 wushu stances. Thought about it and decided I might just do these three for now and then bike riding.

            Mabu - 30 seconds
            30 seconds rest
            Gong bu - 30 seconds per side
            30 seconds rest
            Du Li Bu - 30 seconds per side

            30 minutes recumbent bike riding with spin music.

                Today:

                3 wushu stances from Tuesday - 30 seconds/each side

                30 minutes recumbent biking, well just over 30 minutes because I got stuck in a nunchaku-spinning daydream and wanted to finish it.

                  I don't remember if I've mentioned this, but my body decided it doesn't like bread anymore. I've been trying to figure out food the last few days because I can't eat dairy, not supposed to eat a lot of meat because of a metaboloic disorder, and now my body doesn't like bread....pff, wow. I had a burger and fries tonight just see how my body reacted to it and it was just as I thought, but I needed the mental closure.

                  So.....now pizza and burgers are off the menu, probably for a long time.

                      Today:
                      Only 15 minutes of biking. I think I hurt the bike. I heard a flapping sound from inside it that wasn't there before. The bike is second-hand and the electronics don't work on it anyway, so the resistance isn't present. Only one speed. Had looked into buying a new one at one point, but I figured I'd make this work. Well, looks like it's garbage. Time for a new lower body workout.

                        Warmup: Boxing Arms (with wrist weights)
                        Workout: Knockout Level 2, 4x8 TRX Rows, Strength & Power (frankly, I kinda rushed through that one. My mind started to fatigue. "I don't want to do this one anymore!" it said. "Tough," I said. "Let's just get through this one and we'll choose another one for Friday.")
                        Cooldown: Micro Shred (New! switched Verity out for this one. This will be my cool down for a few weeks)

                        Next week I'll be switching up the workout entirely to keep my muscles confused. New warmup, new workout, but keeping Micro Shred as the cooldown.

                          New lower body workout!

                          Pistol Squat Prep
                          Epic Glutes
                          Epic Calves

                          Definitely worked up a sweat and feeling good about choosing to exercise tonight. I was going to take a break because I've been feeling fatigued the last few days from medicine, but I've been forcing my mind and body through workouts. Then I remembered I'm two days away from retirement (15 day badge) and decided to workout tonight and for dang sure workout tomorrow.

                            Today:

                            Somehow I threw out my back a little bit stretching it this morning, so I've had some back pain all day. Lightened up the workout a little bit as a result.

                            Warmup: Boxer Arms
                            Workout: 4x8 TRX Rows, The Final Bell Level 3
                            Cooldown: Micro Shred

                            I've been talking with my sister the last few days about food. She's gotten really into healthy eating and going to the gym recently. She started a document with some recipes and things and we've been bouncing ideas of each other. Despite the positive vibes, I've been pretty discouraged with food.

                            I can't have a lot of dairy
                            I can't have bread anymore (not gluten, just bread)
                            marinara/tomato sauce gives me a bit of acid reflux
                            berries give me a bit of acid reflux
                            I'm not supposed to eat too much protein because of a metabolic disorder
                            fresh food goes bad in my place before I can eat it all

                            I'm pretty much in a limbo where my sugar cravings aren't as bad so my body doesn't want any junk, but I'm not as excited about only eating fruits and vegetables right now as others may be. So I'm left to wander the virtual grocery isles wondering what the heck I can eat that also won't add on any extra pounds...

                              New weeks, new workout. The start of week 4. In my mind I have structure of 3 more weeks. So after these next 3 weeks, I'll start a program. One of the RPG ones, I think.
                              Anyways,

                              Today:

                              Warmup: Energy Boost (no extra weight)
                              Workout: HardBack Level 1, Daybreak
                              Cooldown: Micro Shred

                              Got together with my sister and talked about food and meal ideas over the weekend. It was productive. Bought a bunch of groceries too. Breakfast today was a one-egg omelette with red/green peppers, onions, kale, and spinach, oatmeal with blueberries, and a small hashbrown patty. Lunch was tuna salad (mayonnaise, mustard, garlic, liquid smoke, and dill pickle juice) and a chef salad. Dinner was a Healthy Choice bowl of Orange chicken veggies, and white rice. Bought stuff for stir fry, but that will require some prep, because I bought real rice (the kind that take an hour to cook).
