Day 54: Cardio X
“X ME, BABY.” I did it. It’s done. Sweat it all out. Felt great. For some odd reason my ‘Jump Shots’ to my left are slower than my right. Then again, I might also be beat by the time I get there. ‘Tires’ were ridiculous, but not as ridiculous as ‘Superman Banana’. I was glad it was the end of the workout, since sweat was getting into my eyes...
…Are frigging shot to hell. But it feels so nice. Cardio X today, and I will be doing that later. Might even go for a run. Overdoing it? Awh, hell nah. Egg whites got me fueld, brah. (Don’t mind the grammar me)
Turned down the opportunity to play tennis this afternoon because we didn’t know when or if the rain was going to pour. In addition, my arms are pretty sore from muay thai. For some reason, I feel guilty for saying no, though. Is that weird? Anyhow, A has work to do anyway. But, now I feel bored and although I’m tired, I feel like going to the gym. Thursdays at the Y means, basketball....
Day 53: Muay Thai
In place of Kenpo X. Good workout. Worked on my uppercuts and kicks. Prior to the workout, I did a kettlebell circuit. Got my heart pumping fast. In between sets of muay thai, I did the cardio break similar to the one during the kenpo x workout. The whole thing was a bit more draining since I added resistance. I definitely felt it in my core when I worked on my hooks. Finished off with some...
Day 52: X Stretch
Went for a run as well this morning. 5k, no big deal. Just came home from work. Gashed up my knee playing volleyball…not a good look. Knee pads anyone? My sets are coming along nicely. I just wish I had mad hops. Good night overall. Ending off nicely with some thunder and lightning.
Day 51: Core Synergistics
Hot workout. Sweat dripping on the floor, face red and high adrenaline. It felt great, especially after a morning run. The ‘Halfback’ killed me, though. Although I felt like I had a good amount of energy, my legs felt like jello. Going out later with A to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. I made him a card (I make all my cards) that I hope he likes…[insert corny, but thoughtful...
Day 48: Kenpo X
It was disgustingly hot working out. I kept having to take water breaks because I was sweating buckets. To be quite honest, I was very close to not going to the gym at all today. I felt super tired after work, and all I could think of was sleep. But as soon as I got down to take a nap, 15min into it, my mind kept wandering and thinking about working out. So, I got up and did what I had to do. ...
Found a few smoothie recipes I’ll be trying out. PRIMAL BERRY SMOOTHIE 1/2 cup almond milk 1/2 cup grapefruit juice 3/4 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries 1 tablespoon almond butter 1/2 cup fresh or frozen kale 1 small-medium sized banana 1 heaping scoop (about 25g protein) vanilla whey protein I’d have to substitute a few things, namely the frozen kale for spinach, the...

Day 45: Chest, Shoulders & Triceps + Abs
Best feeling in the world? Getting my workout done before noon. Woke up pretty early, then again I went to bed at 10PM (yeah, I’m an old fart). Kind of had a weird sleep because my pillow kept slipping all over the place. So I woke up at 645AM and changed my bed sheets (not that they were dirty or anything..). Had my eggwhites with some turkey, a glass of watered down OJ (don’t judge,...
Day 44: Core Synergistics + Cardio X
What a workout. So, I wasn’t able to do Core Synergistics yesterday, so I did it today, along with Cardio X. Where the hell did all this energy come from? I got up at 530AM for work today, and was on my feet all day until 1PM when I got off. Got home, ate a snack, got ready and went to the gym. Usually I would have taken a quick nap, but I felt super energized today. I was sweating tons, so...
So, on my way to school on Sunday, I noticed the Goodlife Marathon running through my school (Adelaide). A lot of badass folks, I tell ya. The girl that won first passed by me, and all I could think of was, “This girl is mu’fukkin’ serious with her gloves..”. Mind you it was raining, so everyone was red and drenched. I passed by the water station, and all I could hear the...
Day 40: Legs & Back + Abs
Yeah, my legs feel like jello. Sure I’ve done the legs and back workout before, but to rollerblade to and from the gym…yeah, I don’t think so I’m hardcore. I skimped out on a few of the exercises of Ab Ripper X, that’s why I didn’t log it down. I did a few variations of my own, namely the core exercises I do during Muay Thai. Still got one hell of a burn, and I...
