So all last week I had yesterday looming over my head. We buried my mom’s ashes with my dad. I thought it would bring closure but it didn’t, or doesn’t feel like it. I kind of feel like time is the only thing that will help.
I had started out the week good, but it quickly went downhill. I didn’t eat great and certainly did not exercise as much as I wanted to. Tomorrow is weigh day and regardless of what presents itself, I’ll record it and move on. I am recharged and ready to start again. And this time I’m armed with a game plan (I’m sure it’ll change but I have one nonetheless).
Seeing as I can’t get to the gym every day, but I need some activity I decided to challenge myself this coming week.
During my session with Rob, I completed the lowest squats I have ever done (I thought he was crazy when he showed me!). We used a pretty low box to use as the guide so go as low as you can, it should be hard to stand back up.
Day 1 – 100 crunches, 10 push-ups, 50 squats, 2-30 second planks
Day 2 – 100 crunches, 10 push-ups, 50 squats, 2-30 second planks
Day 3 – 100 crunches, 12 push-ups, 50 squats with a side kick, 2-45 second planks
Day 4 – 100 crunches, 12 push-ups, 50 lunges (25 each leg), 2-45 second planks
Day 5 – 100 crunches, 15 push-ups, 50 side lunges (25 each leg), 2-45 second planks
Day 6 – 100 crunches, 15 push-ups, 50 squats, 20 lunges (10 each leg), 1 60 second plank
Day 7 – 100 crunches, 20 push-ups, 50 squats with a side kick, 30 lunges (alternating), 1 60 second plank
I will be alternating my crunches, 50 regular and 50 Lower ab (bring your legs up to your chest). I’m also doing my push-ups as decline push-ups (Rob had me use a bench, I’ll be using the stairs). There are tons of modifications if you google or look up on Pinterest. I’m by no means an expert (yet) just sharing what I have done in the past and what works for me.
Let’s do this!
