Wake Up & Work Out

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?
