moves

Kenpo X - well I thought I'd get a weather break-no such luck. I'm working solo at least so that will generate less heat.
OK-I made it and it wasn't so bad----just still having some weirdness in the leg. It had almost gone away for a while
but now it's back and worse than ever. Groin muscle feels slightly off or out of joint or something. The stretching last night has
seemed to irritate it. I can't afford to get it checked out
so I'll work with it.

I am starting to not recognize myself-like my back. Not just skin and bones anymore. I like it, I like it! I am really starting to see
significant changes-----wowie.

moves

Core Synergystics--- it's cool 'cause there's 2 "y"s. Naw. I sound like a broken record, but this heat is a stinker. I am waiting for it to cool down a tad...late workout here I come....Well it did NOT cool down---it was certainly over 80 degrees in that place with a door open and a fan. I actually did better than last time nonetheless!!! Yeah!

I am a night owl, but I don't like working out this late all of the time- Just works out this way sometimes I guess.

moves

Yoga X--- Another solo workout....trying to catch my reflection in the door windows to see my form. That's one thing-there is
no expert watching and critiquing us...I would say that is the good thing about having a partner: you can keep an eye on each other and
help out the best that you can while doing the moves yourself. Even tho I was very tired as it was late and I had had no more than 4 1/2 hours of sleep the night before, I felt strong. Much more enjoyable when you feel strong.
However, when I got to the 1 foot balancing poses, I felt worse than ever. Something had to go and I never had that to begin with~

I'm not very good at balancing poses either. Your fruit salad always sounds so yummy.

moves

Day off from workouts. I walked around nonstop from 11:30 until 4:30. Then I walked around at night before and after watching
roller derby (1 1/2 miles).

mmm the fruit is something we have been doing for 2 1/2 years-now it's like there is something terribly wrong if we don't
start with 1 or 2 pieces fruit or a salad. Then if we have a less than stellar food day, at least we've had a good beginning...

Low humidity day is a-o-k!

moves

Biking to and from farm (approx 5.5 miles) w/ backpack full of stuff on the way back... fun prickers got my arm TWICE. Just looks like my cat got me again.

Shoulders & Arms--- whoopie! My fave workout since Kenpo! I know it sounds lame, but I have an affection for workouts that do not include myself doing pull-ups(assisted) or crazy balance moves or pushups or 10,000 squats.......

I am in week 9 of this program and I haven't done this particular workout since week 1, 2, and 3. M said he saw significant improvements since then so I was hoping to see the same....I did improve, there is no doubt; but maybe not _that_ significantly.

It felt surprisingly good- like I was glowing from within- a good heat! Quite pumped. ( I wish I wasn't out of protein powder today!) There is a bonus round and I was hungry to do that like never before. Since we have a better selection of weights, it made it a lot easier to follow along... whereas before, if a rep of 16 was required and I needed less than 10 lbs, I'd have to just do it without any weighs (no I usually don't have 2 cans around that are the same size).

I'll be posting the befores and afters of every workout after day 90.

Ab Ripper---- I am happy that I can do the last move, (40) Mason Twists (Kayaks) w/o pausing --- and for the last few times, I can go to 44....
Also, this was the second workout that I was able to do the Oblique V-ups all the way thru w/o pausing (tho I paused between the left side and the
right side. Yeah core!

11:00 Salad of Fruit (1 orange, 1/4 apple, 1 kiwi, 1 nectarine, shredded coconut)
12:00 1 1/2 cup 7 grain cereal flakes w/Almond Breeze, agave
12:30 2 cups org. black coffee, sm handful tamari almonds, a couple puffed spelt cakes
2:00 handful wheat thin like crackers
(2:30 bike ride) date, grazed on raspberries, cherry tomatoes and herbs at farm
5:30 1 1/2 cup kamut and w.w. pasta pesto, a few pistachios
(8:45 workout)
11:00 big salad that could not wait til tomorrow! (basil, parsley, butter lettuce, tomato, carrot, walnuts, hemp seeds, beets, agave mustard dressing)
12:45 am picked on cukes, basil, dill while making a salad for tomorrow :-)
