    Okay so started Tuesday, walked to and from work, 6km round trip.

    1hr Yoga today.

    Gym tomorrow morning, and walking to work tomorrow again as well.

    Slow and steady to start with.

    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    I wrote a depressing post filled with whining and excuses a few days ago and didn't post it. Needless to say I had a bad week last week and failed my weekly exercise AND diet goals (I was sick, but only for the end of the week so no excuse). I did well on my daily diet goals other than not eating much at all let alone green stuff while I was sick.

    Today I did a p90x so I'm back on track finally after 2 weeks. Still need to do my weekly diet goal, keeping on track with the daily goals so far this week.

    Next week 2/3 sports start (the other one starts the week after) so it'll be a bit more challenging to work in the p90x, but that still leaves 4-5 days to slot it in.

    For Oct1 I'm going to modify my goals a bit - still thinking about it. I'll probably keep the exercise ones the same for Oct so I can get used to 3x sports and 1x p90x/week. I think I'm going to make my daily goals into 6x/week goals to give myself a bit more breathing room (while still aiming for daily of course). I'd also like to add another weekly and/or maybe another daily diet goal, but will have to think about what to add.

    Well, it was a tough week -- with my son banned from video games, it was mopey-whiney central at my place and I did a lousy job of getting good sleep and waking up early enough to follow my plan.

    But, anyway, last week I lifted on Thursday and this week just Friday, so at least I didn't skip the weeks entirely, one is better than none. And I did walk last Saturday morning, hopefully I can do that again tomorrow morning.

    Thurs 6 am CrossFit class

    WOD:
    3 rounds, 21-15-9 reps (21 reps each move first round, 15 reps ea 2nd round, 9 reps 3rd)
    dead lifts (105 lbs)
    handstand pushups
    (crap, I forgot to record my time again)

    Since my pushups still suck, this time I did something to work on the weak part of my pushup, which is the deep dip part. So I actually did chest/chin to bench pushups instead. It looks embarrassingly easy because it's not even parallel to the ground, but the point is that I need to work on the part where I go down all the way so that the upper portion of my chest (as opposed to the part of my boobs that sticks out which would be much easier ) touches the bench and my chin almost touches, while keeping my core straight (as opposed to bending towards the bench to make it easy). The deep portion of the dip is where I need to build strength. So now I've adjusted my home workout to use this move instead of regular pushups, also.

    They look even easier than pushups from the knees, but for me, they are actually much harder. Embarrassing, but the good news is that I found a good way to work on the weakest part of my pushups, so I'll be much stronger at pushups after working on that for awhile.

    Today (Fri)

    Home Workout

    1000 rope jumps
    20 stair lifts, ea leg

    5 rounds:
    5 chest/chin to bench pushups
    20 backups
    20 situps
    10 chair dips
    Completed the 5 rounds in 9:58.

    I added a new exercise routine to my repertoire today.
    When I tried it last year, I could barely make it through the warm-up,
    but I was able to do it today!
    Besides the warm-up, it's 12 exercises for whole body,
    and 12 stretches. It takes about 40 minutes.


    I met my goal for the week!

    Sat CrossFit

    I was excited to notice some significant improvements in myself today!

    As part of the warm-up, we did 5 sets x 3 reps of back squats. We worked in partners.
    My partner & I started at 65lb, and added 10lb for each set. So back squats 3 reps per set: 65lb, 75, 85, 95, 105lb.

    I was happy with that since last time we did back squats, I fell backwards when I tried to do 95lb, haha. This time 105lb felt lighter than 95lb did a few months ago. I even might try taking it up another notch next time. My squats themselves are getting better, too. I don't have to put my feet so far apart, I can get lower, and I'm getting better at not letting my knees go inwards.

    WOD, 3 rounds for time:

    400m run (total 1200m run)
    21 kettle bell swings (35lb KB) (total 63 KB swings)
    12 pull-ups (medium band) (total 36 pull-ups)

    Completed the three rounds in 13:08.

    Previously, I had been using the 25lb kettle bell, but it was starting to feel a bit easy, so today I tried the 35lb KB, and it was fine, yay! I was also excited that in all three rounds, I only took one short break, and that was in the very last round of pull-ups. Usually I can't do 12 consecutive pull-ups without resting for a few seconds, but I'm getting better at them, yay!

    1 cheat this week. I can blame it on my vacation, but I only was active 3 times, which isn't enough for results, so the cheat gets used.
