And that's Week 4, folks! I can't even explain to you guys how good I'm feeling. I have so much energy lately and I just have a general feeling of well-being. Exercise really is THE best thing you can do for yourself! I'm doing only 25 minutes of exercise a day, and I feel like a new person. Here are my updates from the past week's FOCUS T25 workouts:
Day 22 - Cardio & Stretch (Monday)
Today I had the day off work, so I decided to squeeze in the Stretch workout that I didn't do this weekend. It's weird working out at home by myself, and I missed my workout buddies. I had so much energy today! Probably because I slept in until 10:30, as opposed to my usual 6:15 Monday morning get-up.
Day 23 - Total Body Circuit (Tuesday)
Guess what?! Total Body Circuit didn't kill me today. Yay! Am I finally mastering this horror of a workout, or was today just a fluke?! Not that it wasn't hard... I just didn't die a thousand deaths during and after. I've been eating a lot more protein lately. Could it be that?
Day 24 - Lower Focus (Wednesday)
This workout really took it out of me today, and I'm going to feel it tomorrow, for sure! We had a good time though, laughing and encouraging each other as we hit the hard parts.
Day 25 - Total Body Circuit (Thursday)
FML. Yes, Tuesday's workout was just a fluke.
Day 26 - Ab Intervals & Speed 1.0 (Friday)
Two workouts again today. Luckily I had time to do Ab Intervals just after lunch at work, and we did Speed 1.0 after work. I really really hate the ab workouts, I much prefer a jumping-around-like-a-crazy-person kinda workout. Speed 1.0 was fast and fun as usual.
Day 27 - Stretch (Saturday)
I woke up feeling so good, saw that it was a beautiful sunny and blue-sky day, that I decided to go for a 20-minute jog in the park first before doing the Stretch workout. Great idea, because I feel fantastic!
I'm very excited for the next week of workouts, as it's the last week of Month 1 Alpha. After this week, we'll be starting with Month 2 Beta. I'm a little nervous because I haven't seen the workouts, but I'm ready for a fresh batch of workouts and a new challenge.
This past week I've really been trying to ingest more protein, as my muscles are working so hard, but I physically just can't eat a lot of meat. I tried some a protein shake, and although I like it, I decided to spruce it up and make a "Power Smoothie" out of it. Next week I'll post the recipe to my high-protein smoothie concoction, maybe those of you working out would like to give it a try.
Catch you guys next Saturday. Have a wonderful and safe weekend!
