"Theres no easy way out. Theres no shortcut home"
Tuesday 09.05.2023
1. 10 Jumping Jacks
2. 6 mile walk outside. 1:48:15. So nice out we went out at 4.

Notes: Today was weird. I let my morning get blown up by family drama, blew off all my exercises (well, I guess that’s not so weird) and had a nose bleed after dinner. Hopefully, tomorrow is a better day.
Lesson of the day: There’s a difference between excuses and reasons. Excuses are never valid.

"Theres no easy way out. Theres no shortcut home"
Wednesday 09.06.2023
1. 10 Jumping Jacks
*2. Action Jacquelyn: 12 Min Daily Stretch Routine (Improve Full Body Flexibility).
3. YWB: 7 Min Morning Yoga Refresh Stretch.
4. Calves of Steel Challenge Day 8: 30 seconds calf raise hold. 2 sets. 30 seconds active rest of march steps between sets. Rating = 9.0.
5. Epic Arms Day 1: 26 bicep extensions 10-count hold, 5 sets. 30 second active rest of march steps between sets. Rating = 9.0.
6. Heather Robertson: Powerful Low Impact HIIT Workout (No Equipment).
7. 4 mile walk outside: 1:14:07

❤️AJ: Rating = 8.0. I am not very flexible. Plus, I could feel the pull in my injury.
❤️YWB: Rating = 9.5. I really liked this.
❤️HR: Good workout but it kicked my ass! I noticed I am a lot less stiff when I don't sit at my desk all day. 🤔

Guest Trainer: Today is the first day of Guest Trainer. I have subscriptions to different fitness channels on YouTube. My plan is to go through all of them, alternating from top and bottom. That doesn’t mean I won’t be using YouTube for my normal workouts. I will indicate when that channel is actually a Guest (even though Heather and Bird are more like residents 😺).
So today’s GT was Action Jacquelyn. I’ve done one of her yoga videos in the past. I like her but I think most of her new stuff goes to her paid app now. 😾

Notes: I actually completed all my planned exercises but this vacation is going way too fast. My watch is doing quirky things but GPS works great. The map no longer makes me look like I’m a drunk zombie wandering the neighborhood. The bruising on my knees makes them look terrible.

Lesson of the day: Once trust is broken, things are never quite the same.

Thank you @Gandhalfit 💖

7. Soft Girl Workout: Level 3, no rest.
8. 1.6 mile walk outside. 28:12.

❤️Boxing: Rating = 7.5. I’ve definitely had better workouts. I was really sloppy with the speedbag even though it was fully pumped up. I also felt I was off with the heavy bag.
❤️YWB: Rating = 8.0. Some nice streching but then a fast mini-flow.
❤️30DoL: Rating = 8.5. I am not a fan of squat holds but at least it was only 20 seconds per set.
❤️SG: Rating = 8.0. The high deadlifts were a little awkward but other than that this workout was fine.
❤️Walk: Walk in between afternoon games and evening game. Cool and rainy.

Notes: The first Football Sunday of the season. Broncos’ offense looked better but their defense and kicker sucked so they lost. Tomorrow it’s back to work but only for a half day since we have dentist appointments. I’d rather stay at work.

Lesson of the Day: Little mistakes add up.

❤️30DoL: Rating = 7.5. I did this right after the HR workout so it was shocking hard.

❤️SBY: Rating = 9.0. I liked the minimal cues (even though she doesn't talk a lot anyway.

Notes: Back at work (for a half day) and felt totally out of sync. At the dentist, I had no new issues but time has really run out for my wisdom teeth. My dentist said they need to come out by the end of the year. I know the bottom one is really on borrowed time. In other news, I finally finished the Led Zeppelin book. Good book but a lot of wasted talent.

Lesson of the Day: Putting off the unpleasant doesn’t make it less unpleasant.

Thank you @NancyTree 💖

*Guest Trainer: I subscribed to this channel when someone mentioned their Zumba Class on FB. I don’t know if it’s anything like a real Zumba class. There was no warm up or cool down. I might try another class.

Notes: More nice walking weather. More family drama. I am super nervous about my mammogram tomorrow because of recall last year.

Lesson of the Day: I can’t fight my fears.

"Keep fighting. Fortune will favor the patient and persistent."
No warm-up or cool down for that 9/13 Zumba class would ring alarm bells in my head. Professional trainers always have warm-ups and cool downs. I’d definitely avoid that particular trainer, whoever he/she was, at the very least (and I know I should absolutely not be telling you what to do, but I am having one of those nights where I can’t hold my tongue).

You’re still managing something on the days that are going south. That’s still better than everyone sitting on their you-know-whats.

And for what it’s worth, I don’t look forward to my dentist appointments, or my doctor for that matter. #notalonethere

❤️HR: Rating = 9.0. Basically bonus Yoga. 💙
❤️YWA: Rating = 8.0. Some interesting sequences. I had to modify my high lunges into a low lunge because I couldn't balance. 😾

1. 10 Jumping Jacks
2. BYNM: Day 3 | Solar Plexus | 777 Chakra Challenge.
3. 5 mile walk outside. 1:28:59.

❤️BYNM: Rating = 9.0. A little more heat in this practice I like how she doesn’t hold the poses for too long.

Notes: I was tired and in a bad mood all day. I started out the day having a weird issue with watch. I contacted support. The tech did not actually pay attention to my issue and asked for information I already sent her. At least I figured it out myself.

Lesson of the Day: Attention to detail matters.

I disagree. :p ;)
I fell asleep hard during my meditation last night. I wish I slept that good at when I went to bed
I used to do that when I was a teenager and everyone around me told me that it is a sign that I don't sleep enough. I started sleeping 9 hours a day and it didn't happen again.

Maybe your body needs some more sleep & recovery? :)

Maybe your body needs some more sleep & recovery? :)

100% true. I've always had problems sleeping but it's extra bad now.

❤️GFWR: Fun but I could not get all the steps.
❤️HR: Rating = 8.5. I liked the compound movements but it was a pretty tough workout.
❤️YA: Rating = 8.0. I liked the instructor but I don’t find downward dog and high lunge gentle.

*Guest Trainer: I found this one when I was looking different Yoga instructors. I think it was called YogiApproved then.

First of all, :hug: to you.

And I wouldn’t really call downward dog a gentle pose either. I would have gone with one of the Warrior poses personally from what little yoga I’ve done, but I’m not a yoga instructor.

I hope your sleep gets better.
