By sticking to a strict schedule throughout the week I will be more productive throughout the day. Setting aside a certain time every day to exercise is also a good way to re-energize and stay focused on the tasks that need to be completed. I will achieve this goal by writing a schedule to go to the gym between my classes and exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. When the weather is nice I may run outside instead of going to the gym. 7 months ago

Saturday, Sunday: Not really; on Saturday I went for a walk, today I did star jumps, pushups, a 10 minute cardio set, plank (not “real” exercise)
I feel very unhealthy lately. 15 months ago
3 circuits / 30 minutes with Jillian Michaels.
I love that she uses kickboxing and some classic moves in this.
The whole workout is almost an hour long but I decided not to go crazy since this is my first day working out again after a while. 16 months ago
Sometimes I fele like a character in a French existential novel. I spent the last four days feeling generally “nauseated”, stewing in my own shit and depravity – may be too strong a word but that’s how it feels sometimes – and getting headaches, not eating properly, not exercising and feeling crappy and miserable.
Of course, I am back on a roll again, waking up during daylight hours like eveyone else and getting ready for my tutoring session. It’s amazing how “normal” I look when I go to work or meet people – professional, dressed, made-up, polite, sometimes warm and friendly even – but how sick I feel when I am alone and left to my own devices. I almost can’t wait for term to start so that my days are filled and I am forced to get up on the days I don’t feel like it, even though I’m kind of dreading that start of the new school year.
Anyway, worked out this morning and feel good, took out the stinking trash yesterday and did the dishes so I don’t feel slobby and disgusting.
I have decided to add more cardio to my routine – the lower belly flabbiness isn’t going to go just with strength, sadly – and not beat myself up for skipping days. I get caught up in trying to “catch up” sometimes and that just adds stress to an activity that should be relaxing. 16 months ago
Another day. Those weights feel heavy but manageable. 17 months ago
was not very fun – had some unexpected nonsense to deal with. Anyway, meant to log my cardio workout for Saturday: 30 min of kickboxing. 17 months ago
It really helps me get away from everything. When I am lonely or angry with my friends, the world, about something I saw in the news (which is often), I just have to push myself to work out intensely and I feel untouchable. As if it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of me or what state my relationships are in, because I can come here and feel like this.
It’s also helped me with an ache/inflammation in my heel, gives me more energy, makes me less irritable and physically, I see better muscle tone and less dull skin. 17 months ago
