    2-Min Warm Up

    Back and Biceps - 5kg
    diring the workout I felt fine, but now that I've stopped to drink my creatine my muscles feel tired
    I'm not actually too used to the feeling of my mind being alert while my muscles feel like they're ready for a nap

    50 Pushups Challenge, day 5
    Finished off with knee pushups until it was 50 total pushups including the challenge.

    gunna go shower and have breakfast before I go to work

    Update today: I discovered that I really like almond butter and chocolate spread together!
    I hate the texture of peanut butter, and don't really enjoy the texture of almond butter alone so today I thought I'll try it mixed with some chocolate spread, see if it makes the texture better for me and yes, yes I do like the texture better

    Today I've been so tired I got up had my coffee and then had a nap, woke up from my nap at like 4:45pm
    But at least I'm not in work today, which just means I can catch up with everything at some point not urgently, I've not been getting enough sleep recently and I know it, but it's been a hour or so off each day and with split days off I can barely catch up or try to fix my sleeping a little bit
    But I have today and tomorrow off to get my shit sorted out


    2-Min Warm Up

    Ox Workout again - level 1

    50 Push Ups Challenge day 3

    Yesterday was good, but whenever my arms tensed up at work, like when I want to rest my hands on the back of my head, it hurt
    my oblique area hurt too whenever I leaned to the side to pick stuff up. Still a little sore getting up today, but not as bad as yesterday


    2-min Warm Up
    ​​​​​​​
    Starting Point - just something very low difficulty for me, for a 'rest/casual' day then tomorrow I'll probably do the OX workout again, then

    50 Push Ups Challenge, day 2 completet the 6/2/2 full pushups for the day
    Will work on the rest of my knee/incline pushups through the day

    everywhere hurts after yesterday's workout, it's been a while since I've hurt this much, but I don't think it's unbearable but it's not going to feel great today, but I was full of energy yesterday after doing OX
    2-Min Warm Up

    Right Place, Right Time - level 1, it says lowerbody but it seems just more like core and cardio

    50 Push Ups Challenge - day 1
    I think I'll do the this challenge then try to finish off 50 total knee/wall pushups throughout the rest of the day, (eg day1 is 8 pushups, so the rest of the day I'll do 42 knee/wall pushups?) I think that will help me keep up the Pushups habit, while slowly increasing the amount of full pushups I can do

    2-Min Warm Up

    Ox Workout completed to level 1

    Not a whole lot for today, but I feel like that OX workout was difficult on it's own, originally I wanted to go for an extra couple of sets but I couldn't hack it, used 5kg weights for it.

    I'm thinking of starting Upper Body Plus Challenge to do on top of whatever I decide to do tomorrow, but I'm not too sure

    2-Min Warm Up

    1-Min HIIT, day 30, level 2

    Daily Push Ups, day 30



    Reviewng Challenge and Programme:

    1-Min HIIT
    I think this is a really good programme for people starting out general fitness at an already healthy weight and/or decent fitness level, Like if you can nail some jumps but still bigger it shouldn't be much of an issue, just wouldn't recommend it for someone who has issues with balance of a larger size (just because a mis-step with jumps could cause serious ankle injury) but could be good for anyone if the jumping variants of exercises (Like Jump Lunges) are taken out. I know I struggled with keeping my balance with some of them and it makes me nervous thinking someone might hurt themselves doing that, but also I have weak Lunge and squat game so I might just be projecting that worry. Though if it's too hard you can always add an extra min of rest if you feel like you need it, or just stick to the lower levels
    Overall though a deccent program and helped me feel energized for the day

    Daily Push Ups
    Very flexable for all fitness levels, but I would recommend trying to start with a Pushup variant you know you can do 15 reps of atleast, and trying to stick to tht variant for more results, but not 100% needed, any pushup variant is good enough for this to help get into good habits

    overall very good programmes and very good challenge, and if need

    basecamp unfortunately I've already tried quite a few of the recommended treatments for anxiety to no real success. (Counselling, therapy and multiple types of medication) Even diet changes, and regular exercise. It just always finds a way to creep in, but thank you for the suggestion, I'm always willing to try things, but sometimes it feels like I've tried everything already which is frustrating.
    I know that if I explain my anxieties to people, they're likely to tell me it's not the truth, which would probably make me feel better asking them, but my anxieties also tell me it's a terrible idea and they'll just confirm everything I make myself tired from the mental gymnastics I do to come to these conclusions

    I think negative interactions just stick with me too much, and I forget too easily positive interactions, I know I don't have bad interactions all day every day, I don't have people shouting at me all day every day, but it stresses me out so much agh this is why I don't work directly with the customers at work.
    I just get more anxious when my anxiety outwardly displays as anger, because I sometimes shout because I'm stressed out, and it looks like I'm just an angry person, so I look a dickhead then which makes the anxiety worse
    I just feel like it's so hard to get out of an anxiety spiral sometimes
