Today was such a miserable day out, that it forced me to stay in and do my work for almost the whole day. The good thing was that I was energized all day so doing work wasn’t bad and I was motivated to do my 10 minute trainer workout today. Today I did Abs, Cardio, and Yoga. I have been modifying what is planned out on the schedule, I find myself doing the abs everyday even if it is not suggested. Today it felt good to do yoga cause I woke up in a bad mood and that was like a meditation for me.
Today I got up after my alarm clock went off only one time! It was quite an accomplishment for me. Still half asleep I made my routine breakfast of oatmeal and a granny smith apple. I feel like I cannot function until I have eaten breakfast. Before it used to be I could not function until I had a cup of coffee. For the longest time I would never eat breakfast, which my parents knew, and kept telling me how important it was. I don’t know why I never wanted to eat it, until one day mom started making me breakfast (and by breakfast I mean a toasted bagel or toast) and brought it into my room, so I was able to eat as I rushed to get ready for school. If it wasn’t for her practically making me get into the habit of eating breakfast, I think I would still be skipping it, and making up for it later in the day. Now that I am so dependant on it I have no idea how I used to get by skipping breakfast.
I watched tv as I ate my oatmeal and could barely keep my eyes open. I thought about crawling right back in bed and getting another couple hours of sleep, but I fought it off and was able to get some productive hours of work in and I did my work out all before my classes today. Today I did Yoga, Abs, and Lower Body. It felt so good to do yoga today, my body has been so tense sitting in front of the computer for hours, or leaning over doing my design homework for hours, I wish I could take an hour long class soon, it is definitely what I need right now with the crazy amount of work and stress that come before finals.
I realize I am falling out of habit with the workouts…to be honest it is getting a lot harder to find the time or energy to fit them in. My term is coming to and end I don’t even have enough time to get all my work done. If i can’t do a full work out I do try to just one 10 minute workout. Today I just had enough time for the Abs workout. Abs is my favorite workout to do if I am in a rush becuase I don’t really break a sweat, but I do feel tight and feel like I’ve worked something.
Today is Saturday and I stayed in last night to get a lot of work done…then I woke up this morning and did work for the whole day except to take a break to go to the art store and grocery store. The weather has been gross so it is even less appealing to go outside. I’m definitely in need of Thanksgiving break! even though it wont be a break from the work load…
Today was such a gloomy day. I had to do a photoshoot for photography but I hated walking around the city when it was aboslutely gray out. My class at one was about 10 minute long which was so nice, so I was really productive with my day. Then I had a night class which suprisingly hasn’t been that bad or as painful as I had planned on it being. After my night class I had a meeting to go to, then I finally came back to finish some work and do my work out. I started out doing my workouts in the morning, but now it has turned into a night time thing, I would prefer to do it in the mornings but it just always seems to work out this way.
Today I did abs, Cardio, and Lower Body again…and I also did a lot of walking around the city today to add to my excersize. The same combination wasn’t too repetitive for me, so I didn’t mind. Tomorrow is election day! I will most definitely get out to vote for my first presidential election
TGIF. So when I made my schedule I intended for my no class on Fridays to be used for getting extra work done, so far that really hasn’t happened, but it has made for a great day of relaxtion after my non-stop busy week. Today was especially nice because I had absolutely no plans or committment and technically I could have layed in bed if I wanted. Instead I got up, actually studied for a mid term a little bit… did my 10 minute workout (Total Body, Abs, and Lower Body) and did some errands. And for the first time this year I decided to stay in tonight, which was even more relaxing.For the first time I had the apartment to myself and was able to watch a movie and go to bed early in peace. So it may have not been the most exciting day, but it definitely a much needed day. Tomorrow morning I have to get up and volunteer at the zoo, which should be really cool, I am looking forward to it.
I can’t believe I’m a third of the way done with this work out. While I’m still happy with my results, it makes me wanna step up, because I’m definitely a long way away from what I want to be. Being a college student I think my results will probably be different from someone with a more routine and normal schedule. Anyway, today I did the Core Cardio workout on the other 10 minute trainer DVD. I really liked this workout. Maybe it is because it was a nice change, and I was so sick of the other cardio, but I really did like the excersizes more. In the other cardio workout there were about four exercises that I hated. I kinda wish I had started out with this Core Cardio, but I think it was good to start off with an easier workout.
Today was again, another busy. Now that I am in my sorority, I have something to do everynight. Tonight we had a meeting, which was right after my night class. So far being busy has made me be even more productive cause I have less time to get everything done, I’m hoping it stays like this and doesn’t start to overwhelm me. Being 1/3 of the way done with this workout means that I am a month into school! It feels like I just got here. I’ll be done with this 90 day workout just as winter break comes, and my trimester will be over, so a lot of things will come to an end.
My very short stay in New York was a lot of fun. Because of traffic in Manhattan…I didn’t meet up with my family until 7:00, only an hour and a half behind schedule. But as soon as I got there, my parents and my brother walked a couple blocks to a nearby restaurant and got dinner. We found a really nice Thai restaurant that was just totally my family’s speed, and I ordered red snapper, which was amazing. It was definitely the best meal I have had in a while…I think thats always the case though when its your parents that are footing the bill. Then we walked about 15 block uptown to a movie theater and all saw a movie together…I can’t remember the last time the four of us had gone to dinner and a movie together. It was a really good time though. We got back to the hotel late, and went right to bed. We all had to travel about three hours to get there, even though we were coming from difference places, so we were all tired. Then today we woke up, met up with my aunt and two cousins further uptown and had another amazing meal…we went to a really cute Belgium cafe…a hole in the wall, and for the first hour we were there, we were the only ones there so we could really enjoy ourselves, and be loud, and not have to worry about who we were bothering. I left to come back to Philly after we had brunch…I didn’t want to get back to late and feel really thrown off. So once I got back here, I relaxed, did some work, and did the 10 Minute Work Out…of course. Today I did Total Body, Abs and Cardio. It was definitely necessary after all those good meals out.
When I looked at the schedule I saw that in a couple days, the start of week 5, I switch DVDs…I’m excited but also not looking forward to it at the same time. I can’t wait for a change in the routine, something a little more challenging, but I’m hoping its not too bad that it makes working out even less appealing. Oh well, only one day left of the workout I have become so familiar with!
I was antsy the whole day today, and I have no clue why. I woke up, and my one three hour class was cancelled, so that freed up a whole lot of my day, not only that but that meant that was one less class that would assign homework for this weekend, which is so good because tomorrow I am going to New York City for the night, to see my family. I’m leaving tomorrow afternoon and then getting back Saturday afternoon so I’ll be able to squeeze in workouts both days. Not only that, but when I go to the city with my family, we walk absolutely everywhere, so that trip itself will be a workout.
Today I woke up, had my breakfast of a granny smith apple, and some oatmeal. That has been my breakfast almost everyday this week…I find myself not eating what I want, but eating whatever is about to go bad in my fridge. So basically salad has been my lunch everyday as well. For dinner, I made black beans and vegetables and that was very filling. Today I did Abs and Total Body. I cut it close working out before class, so I only did it 20 minutes, and to be honest, I am so sick of cardio. Occasionally I will be in the mood for a good cardio workout, but thats rare…and that wasn’t today.
So the good news is I did find time to do my 10 minute trainer work out today, the bad news is that it was late at night, which probably isn’t the best thing to do. Anyway, today was very hectic and busy, but thats something I’m getting used to, and it hasn’t gotten to me yet.
I have my first midterm tomorrow…but I think I am well prepared. I didn’t want to work out until I felt I had everything covered, so thats why I waited. Also, I think taking a break to work out while studying definitely wakes you up and makes your more alert and ready to study even more.
Today was Total Body, Lower Body, and I did Abs instead of cardio, because I am so sick of cardio. It felt good to do Total Body, it felt like it had been a while since I had to do that. Well tomorrow I should be able to workout at more reasonable time…but sometimes you just have to fit it in when you can. I promise my week 4 pictures will be up soon. I have to have my roomates take my pic, and they are not always around when im ready.
As usual I saved a lot of my work to do today, because I had it off. I work fairly early this morning, and after my breakfast of oatmeal and an apple, I walked into Center City to take pictures for a photography assignment. I didn’t really have a plan or a route mapped out, so I just kept walking as long as there were interesting things to take pictures of. I was out for about two hours, and I covered a lot of the city, and it was starting to get hot while I was outside, so it felt like a mini work out to start my day off. Then I got back, and relaxed a little bit. Made myself a nice big salad with all of my fresh vegetables, and started on some more work. It seems like I can’t work more than 2 or 3 hours without taking a break, no matter what I am doing and how much I am enjoying it. So my today my day basically consisted of working and breaks…finally by 7 I was done with all my work due for tomorrow and did my work out.
Today it was my favorite combination again, Cardio, Lower Body, Abs. Today was a little difficult because I was tired and lazy all day, so getting the motivation to even start it was hard, and then staying focused and putting a lot of effort into was hard to. I still think working out in the morning is better for me, in terms of having the energy, but it seems like with my schedule its always easy to work out at night. Today the first day where with out even thinking, or having to look at the screen I knew what move would be next. I think thats a good sign. For some reason lower body was more difficult for me today. The three way jockey thing burned more than usual and I wanted to stop…but I didn’t, so thats good! Well my night is not over, even though classes were cancelled today, I still have a meeting to go to.
