    basecamp thank you! I agree it's progress in the right direction



    02/06/21

    2-Min Warm Up

    Back and Biceps - 3.5kg + bar weight I'm not 100% certain what the bar weight is but I think it's 1kg

    I feel like I'm finally getting to a decent fitness level, I know I used to be way below a decent fitness level, I just had no energy to do anything and I would just always want to stay sat on the couch all day and do nothing, which has never been very good for my mental health, but I do feel like keeping busy and having theses workouts has helped so much over the last 2 years


    Future plans (exercisewise) are going to be something like::::
    Monday - Gym - (really push myself on upper body areas)
    Tuesday - Casual/Stretching - mainly recovery day
    Wednesday - Ox/B&B Express - just to keep the activity up and encourage a bit of mental adjustment to the aches, maybe a medium weight
    Thursday - Legs - I don't really want bulky legs at all, but I also don't want to just end up with stick legs and working on legs has actually helped me a lot with my knee pain :/ so not sure what type of workout.
    Friday - ABS - Abs do a lot so I gotta make sure I work on them more often really
    Saturday - Ox/B&B Express - upper body again but maybe lighter weights just for helping to tone the muscles but not stress them too much before going to the gym on Monday
    Sunday - Casual/Stretching - stretching out those aches and pains from the whole week to try to be as rested as possible for Monday's gym session

      2-Min Warm up

      Upperbody Workout level 1
      actually a lot harder than it looks,



      I've not done any exercise for a while as I've not been feeling great, I had 9-day long headache/migraine thing going on which wasn't pleasant at all, but I've been focusing on keeping hydrated and tried to cut out any unneeded stress to my body while I was recovering from that, but I've still needed to attend work....
      I think because I've not been working out my brain has decided it hates me again so I've been quite anxious and stressed out, which hasn't helped at all

            10pushups (mix of full and knee)
            10situps (standard)

            I feel like a dormant slug lol
            But I have been a bit ill, with when I've attempted exercise I've been having waves of migraine so needed to leave the extra time (I o felt like I did) then idk I got a bit lazy and didnt want to start back up, but I've felt a bit like I'm getting out of shape again and had a bit of motivation to start again with a little upperbody stuff
            Idk my MH hasn't been great I think because I've lacked on exercise

                  I didn't really do a workout per se today, but did a big shopping trip and walked back, I also went bowling yesterday so my right shoulder feels a bit achy, quite funny really, I don't know how to not go all out with bowling apparently haha, I'm going to count today as a 'rest/casual' day, but I did get properly dressed(not just jeans and a t-shirt!) and go outside and made vegetable stew and homemade bread with my partner, so I feel like today was a good day, still a fairly busy day
                  I feel like part of my issue when I normally go long periods of time without exercising is that I don't do anything else to fill the time or use any real energy., so I might count going out and doing things as part of casual/rest days

                  I just need to get up when it's 12 and just start the exercise before I do anything else to try not to have time to think about not doing it

                    2-Min Warm up
                    Jungle Workout
                    I took about 1-2 mins rest between sets but I also used a weight that I struggled on the first set with and didn't want to change the weight on my dumbbells part way. (Spin lock dumbbells)

                    I surprised myself in being able to complete the exercise without switching to knee push ups part way through, so that means I haven't really lost too much muscle mass from the lack of exercise, But I think I'll keep trying to improve my musclemass and working on the number of pushups I can do
                    .
                    I'll figure out a bit more of a plan through the week I think.

                    -------------

                    I didn't wake up at 12, but I did get up at 12:30 today so I'm counting that as a win (still half an hour earlier), I also had a couple cups of coffee before the workout, which I know wasn't part of my initial plan but I did still do the exercise so regardless that's a win.

                    We still have so much left over food, and not enough storage tubs for it all, so I think we're going to have go buy some more tubs for the food to be frozen and/or chilled so it doesn't go bad before it can be eaten.

                        I think while I work on a plan I'll do alt upper, abs, rest (this week only) then re-work legday back in (I hate leg day but I know it needs to be done *sob*

                        today I did:

                        2-Min Warm Up
                        Classic Abs

                        I felt knackered afterwards but I did it

                            Something a bit more casual than the other workout days
                            I'm much less achy than I expected I'd be, which I'm very glad for because that means I can enjoy my day of work a bit more haha

                            2-min warm up

                            Daily Pushups Challenge Day 1 (Knee)
                            Easy Abs Challenge Day 1

                            Did some light stretching of my legs because I've heard that might help with the knee pain that I used to get a lot of if it was due to tight muscles, I think I'll just stick to stretches and leg warm ups for this week and do a proper leg workout next week instead, maybe try to do daily leg stretches
