    Not really feeling an ache from yesterday, I think I need to push myself a bit harder on Monday (when I have Tuesdays and Wednesdays off work, it would give me time to recover a bit more)
    Maybe I could add a scoop of Creatine into my sports bottle as well as a scoop in my morning coffee, the little extra might help me push myself harder


    2-Min Warm Up

    Friday Workout, level 1
    did the last set with 2.5kg weight (+lockspin bar which ≈ 1kg? so ~3.5kg added total)


    Pushups
    Week 3 (W1Rest2)



    -----------

    I want to start easing back into the gym properly so I might just start going every Monday and leaving my workout until night time, but I might still do my warmup before I go to work just to make sure if I don't end up going I'm still doing something?

    I feel like I'm either making no progress or going back a few steps, I'm not 100% sure why that is, it's a bit demotivating to be honest. Though it might help to make a layout similar to Darebee's for myself to follow but on paper, then maybe seeing each day getting crossed off might help a bit.

    2-Min Warm Up

    Super Abs x2

    I'm quite enjoying doing the Super Abs, so I think I want to go back to it a bit more often, I feel it working the upper abs quite a lot but not enough to take me out for the next few days.
    I'm going to see how I do the next day or 2 with doing it twice this time, and if I feel okay tomorrow I might make it a routine to do it 2 times on a Sunday

    I think I might take a complete rest day on Friday.

    ---- Just some rambles about work and money-----

    I got offered a promotion at work, I just need to finish up a bunch of eLearning, so hopefully I can get the elearning done and out the way but tbh an extra 0.25 per hour isn't great if they want me to do a shitload of extra work but I think I already do a bunch f the jobs they'd consider to be part of the promotion jobs so I might as well get paid for it, Just going to stick it out until I have a car then search properly for other jobs, I just need enough cash coming in to prove I can afford the car, (I just want finance to get a credit history going) I already have enough saved for the insurance for the first year, and the car and running costs I think, I'm just waiting to hear back about driving lessons, in the meantime I can just try to save a little extra into that car savings to maybe try to get a better car, but if I have to get a crappy one that's not too bad. I'll have to review what I can afford right now tbh and see what's in my upper price range, I've got an estimate for driving lessons but it's only an estimate, it really depends on how quickly I pick up the skills needed

    I'm glad the situation with the crappy manager at work has ironed out a bit, and working with her in manageable now, but now some other managers are being shitty with me? I'm trying to ignore it and just get over it but idk it's getting to me...
    I stayed over at work a little while yesterday to help out the overnight manager, she got really screwed over last night by the closing manager, so I just helped her get caught up on one of the jobs that takes an hour to do properly and made sure that one of the other jobs was at least a bit easier if she gets around to doing it.

    I think my general fitness has improved so much overall, I have so much more energy in my day-to-day life, I'm able to see and feel mu muscles a lot more than I used to be able to, which shouldn't be a surprise but it feels good to notice the changes in myself
    Even if I'm still a long way away from my aesthetic goals, my general fitness is so much better and that's the important one.
    I think to get closer to my aesthetic goals I'll have to actually go back to the gym more often, I just need to figure out if I want to keep the same routine for area focus or if I should shuffle it about a little to fit better around my work schedule especially since I've been given consistent days off now for a while (Hopefully it stays that way for a lot longer)

    I also got told we'll probably re-open fr 24hr access in around July, but we're still waiting on formal confirmation for that

    basecamp I mean it's important for me to not feel guilt over missing exercise, so not letting myself get caught in the trap of "I broke my streak I've ruined it" so I've not been keeping perfect track of how long I've gone exercising daily, just rough estimates, I think that helps me avoid the guilt of missing a day, not knowing how far off exactly I was to the next one etc.

    ngl I didn't complete the 254hr workout (even made easier) yesterday, but honestly it's hard to find the time in the middle of working a shift in a fastfood place to drop down and do pushups or not look odd doing squats on shift, so considering I spent a good 9.5 hours working I think I did pretty well.
    I was very active during my shift (bopping along to music and running back and forth for stocks) so even though the workout wasn't completed I still did some casual exercise in a way, (more terrible dancing than my usual day-to-day)

    I was supposed to have a meeting with boss man yesterday but we were so busy on shift neither of us had a chance to get off the floor so we've had to reschedule for monday instead
