Off day.

Supplements:
1 açai caffeine drink@ 9:30
1 green tea shot @ 3ish?
2 Garden of Life Bx before bed, +
5 chlorella tabs
1 Mega Foods Vegan protect

Also, started the day off with 1 liter of water, & drank half a gallon of 9.0 alkaline water throughout the day, & ate lots of fiber.

Notes on sleep: I tested out my theory yesterday by trying to remain alkaline all day after working out in hopes that I wouldn't need so much sleep, but no such luck. Maybe my body was just detoxing caffeine or something lol. Idk.. we'll see how things unfold, but let last night be a lesson to me: keep planning for 8hrs of sleep even if you don't end up needed it lol.

Time: 7:45am - 9:15am

Today's Goals: Run for over 20mins then do abs, legs, arms, and butt, as tomorrow is an off day.

Today's workout: stretch, jog, stretch.

Warm-up: I did the usual sun salutation for about 20mins, along with a few other moves. Just got my Vegan Health & Fitness mag in the mail today & was that this yoga combo is in it! =D

Workout: jogged for probably a good hour! Went to the park and did some backwards, & L+R side running, and felt inspired during this one song with a hard chorus to run while taking the widest, and largest steps I could take. My butt was nice and sore afterwards - in fact, it still is, over 12 hours later! I even sweat more than I have ever sweated before! I kept wondering what was falling on my shoulders only to discover that it was my sweat lol! Made my day as I've never been a sweater before =D

I didn't end up doing any other exercises as I was out of time, but it didn't bum me out as I had a great workout anyways!

Supplements:
Vega Pre-workout Energizer
Vega chocolate sport
3 chlorella tabs
1 Mega Foods Vegan Protect
1 Garden of Life Bx
500mg x 2 of MSM

Post-Workout Meals:
Thrive post-workout recipe (used Vega smoothie infusion instead of hemp protein, and don't have lemon zest on hand)
Vega chocolate sport protein

Notes/Comments: I have been taking a lot of fiber, maybe too much, because of the lack of food diversity in the house. We have bread with 8g of fiber per slice & I eat about 3 sandwiches a day.. needless to say, I have not been going to the ladies lol. So, I'm taking a look at what I can do to eat better, and I took a laxative tonight lol. Good times... /facepalm

Notes on Sleep: I went to bed around 11:30-12 & woke up around 6-6:15. I expected to need more sleep after not getting enough the night before. I'm almost to the point where I throw up my arms in "wtf I don't get it", but until then, I try logging this until I find a pattern!

Notes on sleep: The whole 6 hour thing mist have been a fluke because I got almost 8 hours last night but woke up like I normally would after not getting over 8: cranky, in pain, hard to wake.

Time: 8:45am - 9:30am

Today's Goals: just a quick jog around the block.

Today's workout: stretch for 20, jog for 20, stretch for 20

Warm-up: sun salutation, and made sure to stretch my ass because it still hurts from 2 days ago's workout!

Workout: just ran around the block once to say that I did it. I would have done more but I didn't have the time.

Supplements:
Vega Pre-workout Energizer
500mg MSM, or more
Several chlorella tablets

Post-Workout Meals:
Modified Thrive post-workout recipe
Vega chocolate sport protein
1 banana
Astragalus, maybe a tablespoon
Alma + spirulina
HealthForce greens
Nordic Naturals Vegan DHA/EPA

Notes/Comments: My ass still hurt like a bitch, except much less than yesterday! Yesterday it felt like both cheeks got punched! I would have done more today but woke up too late. I bought some astragalus last night which will help me recover some bounce.

Notes on Sleep: slept for about 9 hours, woke up on my own & felt pretty good. Makes me sad to think 6 hours a night was a fluke: I don't want to sleep this much :(

Time: 2hours?

Today's Goals: jog as long as I can, then do abs & butt workouts.

Today's workout: stretched, jogged, butt, abs, stretched.

Warm-up: Sun Salutation plus extra stretch in the calfs, & glutes.

Workout: Jogged for a good hour into the park. Did some sprints, backwards jogging, jumping, etc., during the jog. Came home and attempted to do the following butt & ab moves for 1 minute each:

Butt: deadlift, donkey kick L+R, leg extensions, flutter kicks, jumping lunges, chair, fire tyrant L+R, mountain climbers. Much easier this time round, but still much to go

Abs: Basic crunch, Oblique crunch L+R, bicycle crunch, reverse crunch, long arm crunch, cross over crunch, half curl, vertical leg crunch, plank.... Yea, I did about 5 maybe 10 of these, but there was no keeping up with the girl in the video on loop :p

Supplements:
Vega Pre-workout Energizer

Post-Workout Meals:
Modified Thrive post-workout recipe
Vega chocolate protein shake

Notes/Comments: 6 hours of sleep is a myth! Fml.

Time: 12pm - 2pm?

Today's Goals: get closer to hugging my thighs, jog to the end of the park and back, then workout legs and arms.

Today's workout: stretch, jog, arms, legs, stretch.

Warm-up: Sun Salutation, with extra Stretches for the calfs, thighs, arms, and butt. Getting closet to hugging thighs, back cracks when doing simple yoga poses, which is nice.

Workout: Dance/Jogged to the end of the park, as usual. Did some backwards, sideways, wide step, walking, running, etc. What ever the music told my muscles to do.

Arms: Bicep Curls, Tricep Extensions L+R, Bent Over Row, Reverse Bridge Dips, Half Push-ups, High Side Plank L+R, Front Raises.

Legs: Side Leg Lift L+R, Side Left Kick L+R, Inner Thigh Raise L+R, Ham String Curls, Quad Lifts, Static Lung L+R.

Supplements:
Vega Pre-workout Energizer

Post-Workout Meals:
Modified Thrive post-workout recipe
Vega chocolate sport protein.

Notes/Comments: didn't do many reverse bridge dips, but didn't cramp up last time. Legs are the easiest part of my body to workout.

Menstrual cramps should have been bad today, but they were kinda easy. Maybe working out helps, and maybe just like sleeping 6 hours, it was a fluke >.<

Time: a little over an hour.

Today's Goals: jog around the block, just enough to say you did it, considering the time constraint.

Today's workout: stretched, jogged, stretched.

Warm-up: sun salutation, calf, thigh, L+R side/back.

Workout: jogged around the block with Emmie.

Supplements:
Vega Pre-workout Energizer

Post-Workout Meals:
Modified Thrive post-workout recipe

Notes/Comments: It wasn't a long jog, nor an eventful workout because I had very little time & not enough sleep.


Notes on Sleep: I thought staying alkaline before bed is what was helping me sleep less, but since that didn't work, maybe its because I was more alkaline all day? I will have to experiment!

Time: 15+15

Today's Goals: jog around the block

Today's workout: Stretch, jog, stretch, jog, stretch...

Warm-up: Stretched for maybe 10 mins, no time for sun salutation... or so I thought.

Workout: ran around the block, came in, started stretching [see notes], ran around the block again, stretched some more.

Supplements:
-Vega Pre-workout Energizer
-A couple ounces of Chlorophyll
-500mg of MSM, at least
-1g of vitamin C
-5 chlorella tablets

Post-Workout:
A date, and a glass of apple juice

Notes/Comments:
I woke up with not enough sleep but not enough time to get some more. Went for a jog around the block as I thought that's all I had time for, but got a call from my boss telling me to come in an hour later so I don't get over time.. so went back around the block. I really wish I knew earlier as I would have gone to the park, but eh, wasn't the worst workout.

Only got 500ml of water in me before the jog, as I thought I wouldn't have enough time to do anything more.

Time: 2hrs?

Today's Goals: get a good workout in despite being hung over: jog to the park, arms, legs.

Today's workout: stretch, elliptical, arms, legs, stretch.

Warm-up: Sun Salutation, with extra Stretches for the calfs, thighs, arms, and butt.

Workout: It wouldn't stop pouring all day so I got on the elliptical for 40mins.

Arms: Bicep Curls, Tricep Extensions L+R, Bent Over Row, Reverse Bridge Dips, Half Push-ups, High Side Plank L+R, Front Raises.

Legs: Side Leg Lift L+R, Side Left Kick L+R, Inner Thigh Raise L+R, Ham String Curls, Quad Lifts, Static Lung L+R.

Supplements:
Vega Pre-workout Energizer

Post-Workout Meals:
Modified Thrive post-workout recipe
Vega chocolate sport protein.

Notes/Comments: I drank way too much the night before and slept in till noon because of it, missing out on the morning sunshine I could have ran to the park in. Despite that, I got a decent workout. My add was killing me from yesterday, which was awesome. My abs did feel a little sore when stretched but that was it.

I've been trying to retrace my steps to find out how I managed to only get 6 hours of sleep, but with no luck.
