The Week in Workouts

Let’s just lay it out there – my workout week sucked.

Monday – Overslept.
Tuesday – Body Beast Bulk:Chest. After work I went to Bikram yoga.
Wednesday – Body Beast Bulk:Legs
Thursday – Overslept. After work I went to Bikram yoga.
Friday – Overslept.
Saturday – Slept in until 10:30am. I haven’t slept that late in ages, so I must have needed it. 유씨 and I did Body Beast Bulk: Arms, then Insanity Pure Cardio. I needed the endorphins, not going to lie about that.
Sunday – Body Beast Bulk:Back and a 60-minute run.

Where I did well:
Yoga. I think Bikram is the most challenging exercise I have ever done, but I still went twice, and I’ll keep it up until my pass expires.
Eating. I decided to stop counting calories and macros for the Bulk phase of Body Beast and just wing it. My only rule was that I had to get in 5-7 servings of veggies every day. But! I have not gone overboard at all. This is very unusual for me – the minute I go off-plan, I tend to eat a lot of cr@p (especially when I’ve got a stressful work situation). But this week, I’ve eaten only when I was hungry. Who am I anymore?

Where I need to improve:
Walking. My Fitbit only buzzed once this week to tell me that I’ve reached my 15,000 step count goal.
Abs. I had some notion of doing abs every day, alternating between regular abs and obliques, but I didn’t even do any abs once this week.
Running. The half marathon is a mere 20 days away. To say that I’m unprepared is kind of an understatement.
Waking up! I know daylight savings time is a pain, but I need to get over it and get my rear in gear.
