What’s going on!?
I’ve gotten so interested and distracted by fitness related things, sorry for the lack of posts. I do have some in the works, I’ve just been lazy about it.
But anyway, before I post this months Squats Challenge, I just want to say I kind of don’t do them any more. Don’t get me wrong, squats are great- Buuuuuut, the workouts I’m doing now pretty much incorporate a lot of squatting exercises in them AND weights, so I’m over the challenges. If you want to stick to the Squat Challenge, good luck, I’m still rooting for you! :D And if you’d like to try out what I’m doing… Good luck! Hahahaha!!
Make sure you are eating right. I was complaining to myself about how I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted from Insanity (1 week left!! thank goodness- am debating on starting another round or going into P90x), and that reason is my fault for not eating properly the first month. I was still occasionally eating a lot of junk, basically whatever I wanted. I immediately changed that the 2nd month. I even stopped drinking alcohol. x__x
I eat lots of grilled or baked chicken/fish, hella vegetables and fruits, egg whites, oatmeal, TONS of water, and fruit/veggie smoothies. Yep, it’s all I eat/drink now. (Occasionally I’ll have a protein bar- I can’t afford protein shakes yet, and I can’t use my dad’s- it’s specially made for people with diabetes *sigh*)
And I’ve been going to bed on time now. 10 PM-ish, waking up at 5 AM-ish to run on my treadmill or neighborhood. You get so much more done when you wake up early. o_o
One more thing……. I’m not a freakin’ fitness instructor or anything like that. Consult your physician/speak to a professional fitness instructor before attempting these exercises. I’m merely sharing what *I* do and tips on what MIGHT work for you too.
Basic Squats Challenge Calendar:
Personal Workout Calendar:
- Dumbbells (should gradually move up to heavier dumbbells)
- Treadmill (or jog around your neighborhood! I do this too. :))
- Leg Extension Machine
- Barbell + Weights (should gradually move up to heavier weights)
- Intense workout program like Insanity, P90X, Brazilian Buttlift, etc (
*cough*torrent anyone? *cough*)
Have fun, and don’t give up!
This shouldn’t just be a one time/month thing, it should be a lifestyle change~
