Saturday 03.09.2024
1. Begin with Breath Tai Chi: Day 11 - Letting Go of Striving | BALANCE - 30 Days of Tai Chi: Rating = 8.5. I had trouble with balance.
2. BYNM: Yoga for Stress-Free Mornings | 10 Minutes: Rating = 9.0. Quick and nice.
3. 6 mile walk outside. 1:46:50.

Notes: Happy Saturday! I woke up to sunshine today. I also finished a very good book that focuses on health instead of just losing weight. I’ve already decided to categorize my workouts so make sure I am getting all types (starting tomorrow). I will make other changes too but it is ill-advised to make too many changes at once.

Today was pleasant with good food and great weather. On our 6 mile walk we talked about making some healthier food choices.

Thank you @Maegaranthelas 💖

1. Begin with Breath Tai Chi: Day 12 - Moving with Ease | BALANCE - 30 Days of Tai Chi (Tai Chi (Strength/Stretching/Balance)): Rating = 9.0. Tai Chi has it's own category because it encompasses so much. Today's was mostly stretching but it was nice.
2. Boxing: 20 minutes of speedbag/heavy bag (punching, kicking, strikes (knee, elbow, palm), back fist combos. (Combo) Rating = 7.5. Boxing fall into the combo category because it's strength and cardio. This felt hard today. My heart rate was higher than usual.
3. YWK: 10 min Morning Yoga - Gentle Beginner Yoga Stretch (NO PROPS) (Yoga (Restorative/Relaxing)): Rating = 8.5. I have 2 categories of Yoga. The other one is for more active sessions. This session was very strechy and filmed outdoors, which was nice.
4. 4 mile walk outside. 1:13:06. (Cardio/Steady State): Slow walk but nice day.
5. Core Control Day 22: 160 leg raises (Strength): Rating = 9.0.
6. 30 Days of LIIT Day 20 (Strength): Rating = 8.0. My shoulders felt really fatigued.
7. Ten Day 1 (Combo): Rating = 8.5. This included both strength and cardio...but not heavy on either. No struggles with this one.

Notes: Sundays are usually tired, melancholy days. Today was ok, although I did take a brief nap. The weekend flew by.

1. Begin with Breath Tai Chi: Day 13 - Arriving in the Body | BALANCE - 30 Days of Tai Chi (Tai Chi (Strength/Stretching/Balance)): Rating = 9.0. A short, more restorative session today. Perfect for a Monday.
2. Core Control Day 23: 40 torso twists (Strength): Rating = 9.0.
3. 30 Days of LIIT Day 22 (Combo): Level 3, no rest. Rating = 9.0. I did this one accidentally instead of Day 21. Reverse lunges worked my legs.
4. Ten Day 2 (Combo): Rating = 9.0. More reverse lunges. 🙀
5. Heather Robertson: Chest & Back STRENGTH Supersets // HR12WEEK EXPRESS: Day 12 (Strength): Rating = 8.5. Some of this was tough and I needed modifications (the push-up combos).
6. BYNM: DAY 9 | Strength & Balance Fusion | 🦋 BODY, MIND, SOUL: 30 Days of Yoga Transformation with Nico 🦋 (Yoga (Strength/Cardio/Balance)): Rating = 8.5. I kept putting this off because I knew it would be difficult for me. It was. I was shaky and my balance sucks!
7. 4 mile walk outside. 1:10:36.(Cardio/Steady State).

Notes: I started out the week strong with a healthy breakfast and doing all of my planned workouts. For some reason, Mondays are my best day for this. The rest of the week could prove difficult with appointments, tests and test results. Work will be crazy too.

6. Lottie Murphy: Pilates For Relaxation And Calming | 13 Minute Routine (Strength/ Mobility): Rating = 9.0. This was definitely a restorative session.

Notes: I completed all my workouts and had a frustrating day at work. My husband’s platelets were steady but we get the feeling the doctor doesn’t think it will last. It sucks waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Thank.you @Baryl 💖
