After a fun weekend, itz Monday once again. Shocker, right? Not so much. 🙂 I am thrilled that this week marks the second-to-last week of the LiveFit training program I have been following! I am in Phase 3 and it’s definitely my favorite phase, but I am ready to be done with the program. I go through total phases in terms of working out. I crave to have a workout schedule and then I get sick of feeling bound to a training plan. Then, I do my own thing for awhile and I’m excited to get back on a schedule. I guess that’s what makes it exciting, eh? Here’s today’s workout:
Week 11 Day 1: Legs
- Circuit: 30 reps each
- Barbell Squat: 70 pounds
- Leg Press: 135 pounds
- Stiff Legged Barbell Deadlift: 50 pounds
- Barbell Lunge: 40 pounds
- Calf Press on Leg Machine: 150 pounds
- Complete circuit 3 – 4 times.
I like this circuit. 30 reps is a lot to do, so it definitely challenged me during the workout. Update time:
I did meet my goals, but I think it’s time for a change. I’ve got the plating my food and drinking enough water thing down pat. For some reason, last week I went to bed later than usual (after 10 pm!) and this made waking up in the morning much more difficult. It was a snowball effect. Some mornings I took the extra sleep, so I had to get to the gym after school which I don’t love. I like having my freedom when work is over. When I don’t workout in the morning, I don’t feel as good throughout the day. Also, I didn’t follow Week 9 as closely as I should have. I did complete five days of activity, but that’s it. And two of those five days were walks with Zoey. So not my usual workout pattern and I didn’t like it.
My new goals for this week: Go to bed before 10 pm and wake up and workout before work. Ready, set, go! Thanks, Best Body Bootcamp for a little extra motivation.
Speaking of motivation, tonight is the first session the Healthy Eating Challenge hosted by Whole Foods. It is completely sold out; I think that is a good sign that it will be an awesome event. I’ll bring you the update tomorrow.
What’s your motivation?
