day 51

This morning I did 17 minutes of an hour long workout tape. I talked it over with Tekla a little and am thinking about possibly stopping these sort of workouts in the mornings since I just don’t seem to have enough time to do them in the morning before work, and even if I do, I think I might start be getting some level of burnout which is why there’s been a missed workout or two this week and last week.

I do like the extra calorie burn from working out twice a day, but if I’m not getting enough recovery time, it’s not going to work since the workouts will just break me down instead of building me up.

I will keep with the longer workouts in the evening… However, I might go backwards a step or three with the evening workouts since Tekla might be joining me, and she’s not ready for the III-IV tapes yet on Power 90 if we decide to workout together with that… so it’d be back to I-II or something similar.

We might use some other form of exercise other than videos… may be long walks… maybe some other workout videos, etc. Not sure yet. There’s a bunch of opportunities to try a lot of different things.

If I stick with doing the morning workouts, I’ll probably go down to shorter more energetic ones like the 12 minute bodyrock videos. Those are really high intensity so they are still great workouts. However, I didn’t think I was at the level to do them, but just like with the Power 90 if I just do it a few times, I’ll get more used to it so it will get easier over time…

Hell, I may even stop blogging about this stuff, but on the other hand, the blogging is helping me stay focused, so I probably will keep with it for now.

30th evening…Let the two a days begin!

Tonight’s Cardio Ab III-IV tape is now complete. I had a little problem and had to start it later than normal because sugar level was 96 when I got home… I’m definitely going to have to keep an eye on carbs vs energy burn to keep this up from here on out… eventually I may even have to have my doctor cut me back on some meds… tomorrow is a new day. Didn’t miss much by doing the workout in prime time though because all that’s on right now is the Presidential Debate, lol.

Day 28

Day 28 of the 1000 Day Challenge.. Just did half of the III-IV Cardio Abs tape tonight since supper’s almost done. I should have done the workout earlier in the evening but didn’t. Tomorrow is a new day. Not sure if I’ll workout in the morning, but might just to try to get a few more calories down before day 30 weigh in… but maybe not since after day 30 it’s morning and evening workouts every day from here on out as much as possible.

Let myself have caffeine the last couple of days – coffee on weekend and diet dew after that… that has blood pressure way up and the really doing the run lunges right is hurting shins/calves… May need to go back to my ol modified way that I was doing without even thinking about it to continue… a few of those and I can’t do the jumping jacks since it’s too much lower leg pain… got to listen to my body…

edit – did a couple of sets of 10 kettle bell swings and 10 pass arounds with it both ways for a total of 20 per set for each of the two sets.
