    Quick-warm-up

    Square 1, day 9 level 2 complete

    I've been completing these in under 10 minutes so I think tomorrow I might add some stretching routine in.
    By the time I get to level 2 I'm getting bored of the movements, so something longer but more varied might be better, or maybe I just need to listen to couple of songs wihle I'm doing it, just hard to get a good playlist if I can only have like 2-3 songs play start-finish...

    eitherway I want to push the exercise per day to be a bit longer, but also not just dragging it out for the sake of dragging it out

    Quick Warm-up
    Square 1, day 6 Level 1 completed
    Doing those sidebends make me feel the aches from the ones I did a few days ago. ouchie
    I went in for a surprise shift yesterday, they had noone to clean the grills, which isn't a big surprise that the guy that should have come in for it didn't turn up, it's a good job I only live a 5-10min walk away from work

    I feel a bit achy today, maybe I waiting too long yesterday to have my creatine...

    No aches today, I remembered to have some creatine after yesterdays exercise, it really is a life saver for stopping aches the next day. it really is drastic difference, but sometimes I forget because I'm not organised.

    I need to work on organising things in my life a bit more, scheduling my day a bit better around my working days, if I can get more done on those days then on my days off I can relax more, and not worry about getting things around the house done.

    I hope to get better at general functioning this year, I really want to make this year count, even if 'rona is still hanging about, if I can't go out to the gym, then I need to workout at home and if I can't do formal education I should try to educate myself with accessible online stuff a little more.
    I'd like to play less games that require little to no thought, and maybe change them out for something that's a bit more thought provoking.

    Quick Warm-up - done

    Square 1, day 5 -done 30s rest, level 2
    my arms have a healthy burning feeling fter that, actually focusing on the muscle tension is helping me feel like I'm doing more with these lower level programmes, I also did a few extra reps of each exercise on the last set I did.

    Feb I'll be starting up doing a monthly challenge, something that focuses on upper body so I'll need to have a good look through the ones on here.
    Those challenges I find pretty fun to do

    Aching today, but nothing too bad, tensing my muscles while doing these makes me feel like I'm doing more, even if the actions are pretty easy and simple
    Quick Warm-up
    Square 1. day 4 nice and easy to do today, except I still hate squats, I hurt for days after doing those, everything else is fine, just squats are awful :'(

    Quick Warm-up
    Square 1, day 3
    completed to level 3
    felt pretty relaxed for this, I'm less achy than I was yesterday, I think having more bananas will probably help the cramping in my leg I had the other day, and having less salty foods.
    I've still been eating maccies at work (but I work there and get a free meal, so it's hard to make good financial and good health choices, I do sometimes take food in and just grab a side salad on my breaks though, which I think helps me to just feel better overall, veggies are good man, might take some carrots into work with me for something to munch when I'm in need of a snack, on shift

    2nd day back, and I'm feeling achy, it's as if all the work I've done last year was wasted

    Quick-warmup - my calves are burning more today than yesterday from this alone, :/

    Square 1
    Day 2 (level 2) done, I feel a slight ache from the exercises, but it doesn't feel like a "workout", still going to have some creatine, after the way I work up feeling like my muscles where dying off when I woke up today,

    no additional stretches today, ther than a few light stretches that I'll d before I set off to work.

    2020 notes and why I've been gone: 2020 has been a hellish year, the last half of the year my grandad passed away, and then I allowed myself to fall out of working out(whih I'm sure many will say it's understandable given the circumstances), the day I was wondering about betting back into working out to try to help boost my mood, I hurt my ankle at work and needed to completely rest it for 2 weeks before I was able to even go back to work. I was told I should rest it completely for 6 weeks, but 2 weeks was the minimum, and I needed to get back to work so that slowed down the healing process for my ankle. So around 2.5 months later here I am.
    Then every attempt at a standard Darebee warm up would hurt my ankle in the last couple of weeks, so I just stopped at the first hurdle. but enough is enough, I can't keep putting it off if it hurts then I need to do the ankle physio stretches and exercises every day properly instead of half-arsing it


    New Goals: better general fitness, I don't feel like I need to lose any weight at this point, just hopefully change it to some more muscle mass, but I'm going to work it up, and maybe do harder versions of the exercises in the Square 1 programme.

    Quick Warm-Up - some ankle pain during the half-jacks, but enough to push through, feels more like a "my muscles aren't built up enough for this" type of pain now though, so doing at least a daily warm-up should help that hopefully

    Square 1
    day 1 I actually don't have any normal chairs so I just did standard versions of the exercises show on the programme
    Completed 5 sets with 30-50s break between

    Finished off with some light stretching
    Tomorrow, I'll probably use my 0.5kg weights for some light resistance on my workout.
