Day #250 - Whoa is me...February challenge results

Friday, March 01, 2013

emoticon without the glass - no hangover. They just don't have an emoticon that fits my mood today. I guess this is what getting older feels like. My body aches, my energy is blah, I just want to go back home and get in my bed and sleep. I think I may need to stop taking those sleep aids (Melotonin). I don't think I'm getting my sleep out. Today I feel so...BLAH!!!

I went to the gym yesterday barely. I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes and elliptical for 30 minutes. I had to keep the music upbeat so I can finish them both. I had no energy, no motivation at all!!! I don't know if it was the food I ate at the luncheon yesterday but I was not energized!!! That's all I did. Not one squat, not one second of a plank and no weight lifting. My body aches, is tired and I just had no spark! I don't think I'm coming down with anything. It could be my blood count is low - awaiting test results on that. Other than that I don't know. Could the weather cause me to feel blah? Hmmmmm - it's an overcast day, temperatures are dropping into the 40's this weekend and well this is Miami we don't like cold weather.

I've already completed my March schedule and today: Wogging (which I haven't done all week) Weights, 1.5 minute plank, 130 squats and 5 jumping jacks

This month I'm adding in a challenge of doing jumping jacks and continuing on my squat challenge. 135 squats is as high as I'm going. I will start over on Monday with 25 squats since I'm adding the jumping jacks.

February Challenge Recap: I started on February 6th, I completed 16 workouts out of 24 with 4 days being optional Saturdays. Squats began at 20 up to 120 squats by the end of the month. I started holding the plank position for 20 seconds on the 6th to now 1 minute (this is not easy - lol)! I began my wogging plan but haven't been quite consistent with that but will work towards improving that this month. I lost and gained weight - I don't have that on my calendar so I can't see how much I loss/gained for the month right now. My NSV for the month - I got into a size 18 pants that I couldn't. I've lost 1 inch on my arms.

So I move forward - I will do better this month. As for the weekend - I'm a bit undecided right now. I got home projects to do - not sure if I want to paint, or shop around for flooring and by paint for the other portions of my house. We shall see... Going to call the roof repair guy to hopefully schedule the patch on my tool shed. I need to get a electrician to come fix some things as well. So that's my weekend and of course give God praises on Sunday (well everyday but you know go to church)

    I TOTALLY hear you. There are just times like that. Sometimes preworkouts or energy drinks help and sometimes you just need to rest.

    But seriously, wogging.............that is inspired. My son calls it my joggy thing, meaning it isn't a run and yet I don't care. It is the best I can do and my joggy thing is now a family joke. I like your 'wogging' better.

    You did great with your February fitness. And despite the fact that you felt "blah" you worked out for an hour! MOst people do that when they are feeling great! emoticon on the NSV's. The arms inch lost is huge because I know how you feel about your arms. Jumping Jacks will be a good addition to your workout. I wish you the utmost success!
