    Warmup
    Toes
    Pushups
    Abs


    I'm going to re-try the Pushups and Abs challenges in September, for now I'm going to keep going with them until the Aug 30th, I'll keep going with the Toe reach one until then too, but I think I'm going to skip Vitality for the rest of this month in favour of doing actual workouts suitable for me instead of just making myself feel tired, I want muscle growth and when I finish Vitality and all the other challenges I'm too tired to continue with the exercises I want to do, so for the sake of pushing myself for what my goals are I'm going to swap Vitality with other workouts.
    I'm debating if I want to follow a program or a generic training plan for next month, following the programs doesn't require thinking about it too much, but idk I feel like I need to go with the easier ones or I'll fail which I think isn't good for me to reach any of my goals, I feel like my progress has slowed down a lot recently, but part of that will be skipping workouts from being mentally exhausted...
    I feel like I haven't had any Me time in a while, My partner has the same days off as I do which means even if I'm not in work I'm not really getting me time and lockdown things and a lodger moving into the spare room means that I've just not been getting alone time...
    I feel like if I went back to the gym that might help with that issue, but then my friend would also want to start going again so is it really alone time? idk I'm an introvert, I like people but I don't like being around people all the time, it's draining and it's like the only time I get to be alone is when I'm asleep
    I need to change something because this isn't how I want things to be, it's just hard to change habits and routines, everything feels all upsidedown atm
    I'll think about it some more when it gets to the 31st, and really think about what I want to be doing...

    Tuesday - day 20

    2-min warmup
    Toes - done
    Pushup - done
    Abs - done
    Vitality - done

    Did alt Bicep curls from Back & Biceps, but didn't finish the whole thing, I've been so mentally exhausted recently, I just can't bring myself to do anything, doesn't help when you get a manager coming at you because you're depressed(????)
    getting schedules 35hrs (then staying over every shift) is just called having a full time job and it's not possible to be overworked, when you've taken no holiday leave and you've been getting battered at work every goddamn day because of the damn "Eat out to Help out" BS...
    I need some time at home it's getting to the point that I feel physically sick...

    Vitality tbh I don't have enough energy today I'm skipping this, but I'll try and do 100 calve raises throughout the day and stretches on my break at work. Hopefully it gives me a boost for the rest of my shift after my break

    Sunday

    2min warmup -
    Pushups - I failed on the last rep on the last set, rip
    Toes -
    Squat - taken the challenge out for the rest of this month, it's too many challenges I think I need to take it down a bit if I'm going to keep going with daily exercise might try 50 squats throughout the day for the rest of the month after today, squats are just a bit much for me today
    Abs - in theory such an easy challenge with being able to split it into as many sets as I want, but it's still hard to do it all in quick time
    Vitality - donee
    This is too many days missed for workouts now, I think the challenges are throwing me off, my ribs on the right hurt

    My ankle is doing much better now which is good, maybe the couple of days off helped because all the swelling has gone down from all over my foot and ankle to just slight swelling to the left side of my ankle

    Wednesday
    2-min warmup - donee
    pushups - done
    Toes - done
    Squats - tried to do it, but got to 8 and the bandage on my ankle was rubbing the insect bites too much, so I'll leave that one
    Abs - done
    Vitality - skipped because of my ankle being all bitten up

    Yesterday's shift at work was horrible, that kitchen has been so damn hot it's unreal, and we got absolutley battered because of the "eat out to help out" BS, ughhhhhh and my ankle was all itchy and irritated yesterday when I got to work from the get go, so it's just been horrible with all the sweat making them more irritated.
    And so many things went wrong on yesterdays shift at work, it's was actually awful.
    I'm glad I've got today and tomorrow off now to relax and just get some bits around the house done

    Piece of Cake - done, it's hot today but considering how much I struggled with this exercise originally I'm glad I've kept doing this one semi-regularly, it shows that I am making progress on general fitness

    Notes
    Didn't update yesterday because I didn't exercise I spent the day feeling ill and being in an awful mood (from feeling ill and the heat making me feel even worse while at work in a kitchen ugh) even part way through workout out today I started feeling a bit sick... I'll just stick to the dailies until I feel a bit better I think....
