Workout Wednesday

Okay. Today was good.

I’ll admit, I slept really well last night. And we were just a little ahead of schedule this morning. (Does it really matter? Not at all!)

But today I did five sets, in 21 minutes. I hit 750/1000. I did 100 sit-ups and push-ups and plank jump-ins (they are the worst) and hop heel clicks. I did 150 squats. I did 200 jumping jacks. In 21 minutes, with some rest in there.

On Friday, I did 750 and it took forever. It was also the middle of the afternoon and hot out. But here’s the table difference:

EXERCISEFRIWED
Jumping Jacks50*440*5
Squats30*530*5
Hop/Jump25*420*5
Sit-Ups25*420*5
Push-Ups25*420*5
Plank Jump-Ins25*420*5
TOTALS750750

So, I don’t know what difference sets versus reps make, if it does, in this kind of workout. I paused more doing 25 sit-ups, I got more in my head on Friday. I did not rest nearly as much this morning. But does time of day change things that much? Caffeine? Having eaten? Humidity? I don’t know.

What I do know is that I’ll be working to normalize five sets, and pushing hard to stick to 22 minutes, maximum.

I’m glad I’m tracking this stuff. Fun fact! I started doing this in May, and really tracking things in June. Here’s my workout two months ago, and my workout today:

20-Jun19-Aug
Jumping Jacks60200
Squats18150
Hop/Jump18100
Sit-Ups36100
Push-Ups18100
Plank Jump-Ins18100
TOTAL168750

And you know what? In both of these workouts, I did more than nothing. But man, progress feels good!

Friday Freakout! 750!

I have been doing bodyweight exercises, building reps and sets to get to 1,000 reps. (I think if you go here, it’s the most recent post about it.) I have struggled, uh, the entire time with doing the exercise consistently–my worst streak of not doing any bodyweight was four days, until earlier this week, when it was five. So today, even though I did not get up early, I took my time and worked out.

And I got to 750. And probably no one cares except me, but guys, I did 100 sit-ups. I am proud of myself. And I’m not going to blow this lead by eating like a moron tonight! I am breaking the weight loss plateau I’ve been on for three weeks. It’s happening! Believe it!
