      My left ankle is mad at me for jumping so much. And to protest it hurts when I work out.

        I'm glad to announce that from this day exercising has became a part of my life. Even if I think I'm too tired for doing some exercises, I find myself doing them anyway. I also replaced Stardust workout with Athena Workout and somewhere in set 3 I asked my past self what on earth were you thinking, it's a level 4 workout, have you finally lost your wits. My legs resemble with jelly. But I'm happy because I forced myself through five sets thinking that "this will be the last set, don't worry" I have been focusing (without really acknowledging it) on legs and they are quite strong. But my core, abs and upper body strength is something I have to work for. I'm thinking of working on with Abs&core, upper body and full body workouts from now on.

        I'm using Scout template, so my workouts go like this (at least in this week): Ready, Steady, Go! lvl.2 - Damage Control lvl.2 - Athena Workout lvl. 2 - Killer Core Workout (I'd like to aim to lvl. 3) - Duck & Swing lvl. 3 (GOOD LUCK TO ME) - Ready, Steady, Go! lvl. 2 - Damage Control lvl. 2

        Anyway

        06.11.2016 - SUNDAY

        Morning: Warm Up
        Wake Up & Make It Happen
        Backup & Restore (I invited my little sister and mother to do it too. It was hilarious)
        DD+EC
        Evening: FOUNDATION LIGHT Day 20 - lvl. 3 - 30 seconds rest between sets
        Athena Workout lvl. 2
        30 DAY WALKABOUT Day 23
        Night: MBPT
        Flexibility Challenge Workout
        Better Sleep
        Throughout the day: POSTURE CHALLENGE Day 6 (Why do I always forget you? I don't understand)

        ---

        I used to have emotionally and mentally really scarring dreams. The ones that make you doubt in every person that is close to you and who matters to you and makes you feel like nothing. I saw these dreams for a full week. Then I did Better Sleep workout and used the app Relax Melodies and I have more normal dreams (fantasy, fighting, dragons etc, but in a good sense). I missed a day and I had the worst emotionally and mentally wrecking dream I have ever had. Now I have done it every day and I have slept without dreams, dreams I remember only hazily or with dreams that are filled with action. So Better Sleep works. If you're having some really bad dreams then do Better Sleep before sleep. And try Relax Melodies. It worked for me.

            Great job sticking with it, Hwestneth. How is your finger?

            That's a pretty interesting note about the Better Sleep workout. I sleep like a rock so I haven't tried it myself, but I will recommend it to a friend who could be in need of it.

              Thank you :3 twinkletoes

              My finger is doing better It's not that crooked anymore and goes quite straight, but not so much into a fist. Doctors took a look at it and said that the fracture has healed, but the bone is thin (bone necrosis) because of lack of use. But now I'll go to rehabiliation with it once a week so it will be fine

              Yeah, I was surprised by the outcome of the workout myself. I'm glad if it helps someone else, too

                That's good to hear (though "bone necrosis" sounds dreadful ). I hope the rehabilitation will give you good and quick results.

                  Nothing too horrible the picture was quite surprising and now I know that I did the right thing to avoid more advanced basketball matches in PE It feels a bit tender but I think the rehabiliation will work out well Thanks for the support

                    Throughout the day: POSTURE CHALLENGE Day 8

                    I walked home in the dark. It was about a 13km walk from the city. It was very dark, but it was really amazing. I couldn't feel the cold, there were light halos everywhere where there was a little light and after some time it seemed like a light was shining behind me to light my way even when there were no cars or anything.


                    09.11.2016 - WEDNESDAY

                    Day: 8.45-13.00 - 100 squats
                    PE (aerobics, skids) - I really like that kind of stuff, climbing around etc.
                    Evening: DD+EC
                    Ready, Steady, GO! lvl. 2 + EC (1 minute rest between sets)

                    Throughout the day: POSTURE CHALLENGE Day 9

                    This day I was really exhausted. I couldn't get up in time to do the morning workouts and I literally fell asleep with a poem in my hand I was trying to memorize and slept till the morning. Therefore I didn't manage to do the Walkabout challenge or the nightly workouts.

                    10.11.2016 - THURSDAY

                    Day: 8.45-10.35 - 60 squats
                    DD+EC
                    Damage Control lvl. 2 - 1 minute rest between sets
                    Evening: FOUNDATION LIGHT Day 24 - lvl. 3 - no rest between sets
                    Night: 30 DAY WALKABOUT CHALLENGE Day 26
                    Throughout the day: POSTURE CHALLENGE Day 10

                    I woke up late and was thankfully a bit more refreshed than usual. But during the day I developed a sickish feeling. I think I might have put a little too much pressure on myself (even if I put my physical health aside, my grades have dropped, I haven't done my homework quite many times and I'm almost always exhausted and have very many things to do) and maybe even overtrained a little. Some muscles and parts of my body hurt a little (and not in a muscle soreness kind of way. In a funny way I can sense what causes the pain) and I'm pretty much always exhausted. I need to concentrate a little more to studying, especially when on Saturday is an exam.
                    In order to not to be like a sick zombie who can achieve nothing, I will lose my morning and nigthly training and do parts of them when I feel like I have the strength and time to do so. I'll be keeping Daily Dares, main workout, challenges and Foundation Light. I want to get everything back on track. Also, I'd like to heal myself a little.

                    This week so far has been rough.

                      Ready, Steady, GO! lvl. 2 + EC (1 minute rest between sets)
                      Night: FOUNDATION LIGHT Day 25 - lvl. 3 - no rest between sets
                      Throughout the day: POSTURE CHALLENGE Day 11

                      The day before the exam. I couldn't concentrate. I studied literally with almost no pauses from waking up to going to going to sleep (which was around two o'clock at night)

                      12.11.2016 - SATURDAY

                      Evening: DD+EC
                      Damage Control lvl. 2
                      Night: FOUNDATION LIGHT Day 26 - lvl. 3 - no rest
                      Throughout the day: POSTURE CHALLENGE Day 12

                      THE EXAM DAY. Holy. Hell. I have never been so nervous before in my entire life. Ever. I woke up at 6am. The exam was supposed to start at 9am but it was pushed to 11am due to technical malfunctions. I have no clue how I performed.
                      This Foundation Light day was fighting. It was fun and I used muscles that I hadn't used before. My muscles were sore the next day.

                      ---

                      I recently looked over my workouts and I discovered something -- every day is leg day I'll try to change that. Because that's why my feet hurt.
                      Also I've gotten rid of exhaustion but.. that might come back when I start the new week.
                      I'll try to get my grades and studying back on track and then I'll increase my workout load.
                      Oh the Walkabout Challenge. I know it's really bad I'm skipping days so much, but I don't just have the time. I really don't. I'll finish with it this week. I've got 4 days to go. But in my defence, even when I haven't reached the number required, I have done at least 7000 steps.

                        ---

                        MY FIRST BADGE :3 I'm satisfied and have found some more motivation to do my workouts, challenges and programs thanks to that.
                        I'm also glad to announce that my grades have started to get better but they are still not the best. In addition to that, some of my joints hurt, but that's no big deal (especially since I know why they hurt)

                        Tomorrow I'll take up two new programs (FOUNDATION and TOTALS) and one new challenge (MAKEOVER CHALLENGE). I'll see how they work with eachother and I'll keep an eye on what my body tells me. If it's too much (exhaustion, pains, little injuries) then I'm not going to drop the programs or challenges, but maybe move the main workout to morning or not do it at all.

                        It'll be weird now not to walk long distances

                          Haven't posted in a while. When I stopped posting, I took on Makeover Challenge, Foundation and Totals. I got past twenty days with each of them and then I fell sick. First time. And then second. And then third. Honestly, I stopped counting how many times I fell sick. I think I was sick at least for a month or so. So I decided that now I start over with the programs and the challenge.

                          Since the sickness was that kind of a a-hole that I was a whole day in bed one day, then now I'm back to square two (square two because I didn't lose my enthusiasm towards working out, which is a pleasant surprise). I thought I'd start off with daily dares and Flexibility Week.
                          I had the power to participate in Snowball Fight. IT. WAS. AWESOME.
                          Darebee has helped me a lot in keeping myself fit. I actually got very good results!

                          So.

                          Flexibility Week Day 1 - Unbound - 1 minute rest between sets

                          I have to say that I'm out of form, Muscles were a bit weird in the end and I was panting, but it's a start. When you have hit the bottom, you can go only up

                            Turned out that making a window a little bit open while exercising is a bad idea. I caught cold, felt like a skyscraper on Monday and had no voice whatsoever on Tuesday

                            09.01.2017 - MONDAY

                            As I said, I was a bit sickish. But I did my workout anyway. I didn't do Daily Dare (2 minutes of high knees - I would've loved to, but that kind of cardio would've not ended well so soon after the sickness)

                            75 squats from 8.45-12.05 (15 every break - I did 5 less than I used to do every break. Legs felt a bit painful the next day and in the evening)
                            Flexibility Challenge Day 2 - Stronghold - EC (30 seconds rest between sets)


                            10.01.2017 - TUESDAY

                            75 squats from 8.45-12.05 (15 every break) - legs felt better than on Monday
                            Flexibility Challenge Day 3 - Anchor'd - EC (30 seconds between sets) - This was hard. Especially the kick holds. I shook like there was an earthquake
                            DD (40 butterfly dips) + EC (in one go) - easy :3

                            Can't talk properly because of sore throat.

                              Things are starting to get better. Muscles are getting used to working out again and the health troubles are starting to back off.

                              10.01.2017 - WEDNESDAY

                              75 squats from 8.45-12.05 (15 every break) - thinking of increasing the number next week.
                              Flexibility Challenge Day 4 - Tug of War - EC (30 seconds rest between sets) - nice and easy one, although in the side splits my legs wanted to split further than I did
                              DD (40 single leg pulse squats) EC (in 1 go, 20/20) - How deep do I have to squat with them? Did it almost 90 degrees. Almost lost balance on left leg multiple times.

                                I think my throat is getting better because coughing doesn't hurt, but there is still a sore spot. I'm really tired and sleep during the day (today I slept 3 hours) which I normally don't do. When I sleep during the day then I'm very very exhausted. A spot in my foot felt weird, like it was going to swell and then I smeared some cream on it that was supposed to take it away. It still feels a bit weird but it didn't swell so at least that's good. I have running nose and actually made my nose bleed while snuffing (also, it's very hard to get my nose to bleed, but during that time it can happen). After workouts I feel a bit feverish but not that much for me to consider stopping. Sometimes my ears lock.
                                I also took on Balance 30 day challenge and Ab 30 day challenge because I felt that I wasn't doing enough. Those two don't really require much from me so I thought they would do good.

                                11.01.2017 - THURSDAY

                                60 squats from 8.45-11.45 (15 every break)
                                Balance Challenge Day 1 - in one go (the hardest part was holding my foot from slipping)
                                Ab challenge Day 1 - in one go
                                Flexibility Week Day 5 - Far Point - EC (30 seconds rest between sets)
                                DD (3 mins side splits) EC (in one go) - legs kept splitting further than I wanted.


                                12.01.2017 - FRIDAY

                                45 squats from 8.45-10.35 (15 every break)
                                DD (40 circle crunches) EC (in one go) - this was very fun and different for me! I'll save that one and maybe use it later for something
                                Balance Challenge Day 2 - 2x40 1 minute rest between sets
                                Ab challenge Day 2 - in one go (have I ever mentioned before that I'm not really friends with plank exercises? I used to hate them, now I can tolerate them)
                                Flexibility Week Day - Bowman - EC (30 seconds rest between sets)


                                There have been minor setbacks in health but that was expected. I will keep going. I can feel my previous form coming back slowly and it's thrilling, because I didn't even know before that I can get to that point where exercises are easy and fun.

                                See you tomorrow!
