    Forgot to update yesterday, but I did do all my exercises for the day.
    Even did a proper workout, even though I wasn't feeling up to doing anything.

    quick warm up, done
    50Pushupschallenge ,done
    K&P, done

    did a workout, but not finished, very tired from not sleeping properly recently, hopefully when I get my overnight shifts back my routine can get better, sleeping at night is so difficult when I've always worked overnight shifts before...

    woke up feeling like utter garbage today. Not slept well at all.
    Coffee and a protein cookie. been doing some light bits of stretches as I've had my morning coffee

    quick warmup


    K&P 250 kicks throughout day

    Pushups kept in check with my form this time, it was hard but I did it

    No DD or WOTD today, just the bare minumum today, tomorrow will be better

    Anime and coffee morning,

    Classic Warm up bit of stiffness in my left leg during hip rotations, and a 'clicking' in my right shoulder when doing the side arm raises. Not sure what that's about tbh, I've heard it a few times, not painful so might just be that I'm not warming up properly? I should try a few more different warm ups/flexibility routines and see if those help, probably just stiffness and lack of flexibility

    Homerun Done

    50 Pushups after watching some videos on good form, I'm struggling to execute each push up, but I can feel the warmth in my muscles a lot more after doing them this way, so hopefully that means I'm getting more from it! struggled but did it, took longer than 60s rest but kept it under 2 mins

    K&P Done,

    WOFT​ fml hated those side leg raises that start off the workout, and here I thought my leg strength was pretty decent But completed the workout with 3 sets. I think I might have been able to do more, but I didn't push myself
    DD I didn't think I'd get through them, but I did it! I wanted to give up completely about halfway but I took a rest and continued

    woke up, watched some anime while I had my coffee.
    started exercise at 12:20pm (Work begins 16:30)
    quick warm up
    50 Pushups challenge - who thought up push-up planks ffs hate them, but only because I feel like I'm bad at them lol possibly part to do with the ache from a previous workout, but that just means I need to plan my extra workouts around the challenges a bit better I think, carrying boxes at work has been getting easier since I started working out properly, instead of random exercises every once in a while

    Homerun - so many high-knees, quite out of breath, TMI: -something about highknees really makes me need to run to the bathroom though, =A=;; I wonder why that is...

    P&K - Left leg hurts so much more than the right, I knew strength/muscle isn't even without actively using each side evenly but dang....


    DD - 2x 1min sets, completed! I'm finding it hard to picture myself doing those 2 mins in 1 attempt though! Barely made it through the 1 min intervals!
    WOTD - Didn't feel like doing the 'Indoor Cardio' on the homepage so subbed with Back & Biceps express done using 2xdumbbells with 1kg weight each. Will try again another time, with a higher weight

    Other notes, pulled a lot of heavy things at work today, was hell after having done exercises so often recently, but I'll just have to get used to that and more as time goes on

    woke up late today

    Push-ups day 2 done for today, attempted the pushup plank, dang that was hard to do, but managed to do it, so I feel a bit more confident that I'll be able to do day 3 of the 50 pushups challenge

    Homerun day 12 complete, nice and light today, but I don't really feel like the exercise did much, but my heart rate is a little faster,

    P&K day 12 is 200 punches throughout day, so will update progress post when that's done, but I don't think I'll 'feel' any difference doing them if I do it over the course of the day, but will update here if otherwise.

    EC to me!!!
    DD attempted but reaaally struggled with balance, but I gave it a go, only got 20 done but 40%completion is better than 0%
    WOTD did level 1, those leg raises near killed me in every set, and wanted to stop but I just took a couple of breaths and continued . completed 3 sets with 90second rest between sets. Hopefully in a couple of months this wont be as difficult.

    Got my creatine about and reuseable bottle, today I'll make sure to drink plenty of water!

    End of day Update: so tired from working, but I got through

    Completed today exercises, I wasn't really feeling it so I mainly did just the challenges set.
    Hopefully tomorrow I have a bit more energy to do something extra.
    I think I'll wait until July to start a new Program. I need to find something that will challenge me, but not cause my knee more issues
