Today my body is telling me what I already knew: I'm slackin'.  Last week I was definitely a slacker and I think I've been slacking for a couple of weeks, doing a little bit here and there, but not pushing all that hard or doing it everyday.  Yesterday I did one of my kinda regular workouts when I was being regular - was going to do 400 walking lunges but switched it to 300 lunges with 100 deadlifts, half of the lunges done holding 30 lbs, deadlifts with 60 lbs.  And now my legs are super duper sore.  doh!  I will do this workout again next Monday and see how much my soreness decreases.  Here's my basic weekly workout for the next 2 months, cause it's the holidays and I need something simple, basic, routine, cause holidays are always busy. 

Monday - 400 reps Lower body (lunges and deadlifts)
Tuesday - 40 divebombers & 12 minutes of planks
Wednesday - Yoga stretching
Thursday - 12 minutes of planks & bridge
Friday - 1000 stairs &
Saturday - 12 minutes of planks & handstand

Body For Life Success Journal

I found and bought a totally unused Body for Life Success Journal at the local thrift store last week.  Pretty excited.  Probably mostly just excited to have another way of recording and trying again to make myself follow a plan, which said task I've been really slacking at the past 2 weeks.  Did my workout yesterday, didn't follow my diet plan, but the Halloween candy is almost gone, so another day and I'll be good.  I did 12 minutes of planks and a 2 mile run, going to do upper body today. 

60 push ups
60 assisted pull ups
60 bicep curls
60 chair dips
60 shoulder press

The BFL way of working out really is so simple and easy, it takes the hard part out of planning workouts, which since that seems to be half the battle for me would make it seem like it's the perfect solution right?  I just need to commit myself to do it and stop trying to be creative, since that leads to mediocre or no workouts.

Little Bit of This...

Little bit of that...

40 clapping push ups on knees
3 minute center plank
1 minute hand stand
1 minute hand side plank each side
60 deadlifts
200 walking lunges
Some Yoga Stretching...

How's the battle with Halloween candy going at your house?  Here we had 8 kids trick or treating for 2+ hours, so that's 16 hours of gathering junk food door to door... = Lots o junk
I'll probably let my kids pig out on their junk food tonight and get it over with / get it out of here.  It's ruining my efforts to not live in a unhealthy sabotaged environment.

Thanksgiving is next!
