Proof of Your Love - For King & Country

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God today is almost over.
  • Thank you God I finally was able to talk with CPA PTO President.  
  • Thank you God for the Dollar Store.
  • Thank you God today didn't seem as warm.
  • Thank you God for learning.
  • Overall I feel moderately rested.  My body is a little sore, but nothing major, just minor.  My abs mainly due to yesterday's ab exercise.  My glutes are a little sore, but that's about it.  When I use the foam roller the past couple times, I've been using it on my back both vertically and horizontally.  They hit different areas of the back.  And I've been using it on my IT bands (the sides of your upper legs) and they hurt like the dickens.

    My back still isn't 100%, so I continue to periodically use my softball sized ball to loosen the psoas.  I need to work on some strength exercises for the lower back and my abs.
  • Today's workout was very cardio centric, but it goes to show from what I can tell is then when you have to engage your large muscles like your hams & quads in tough stuff, it gets my heartrate up more. 
  • When I'm working out, it seems that I feel overall warmer. 
  • Seems like when I feel stressed, Dr. Pepper is my go to thing.  Ugggh.  I need to do some EFT.
  • I only got about 1/4 of my subcon work done and I'm feeling stressed on how I'm going to get it done this weekend.  Arggh.  Well, got to now get more done and I'm about 60% done.  Better, but I was hoping for 100%.  Oh well.  
  • Probiotic & krill oil - before breakfast
  • 3 tpsns Braggs raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in 8 oz water - before breakfast
  • Hibiscus & green tea with honey, turmeric, ginger - did not do
  • My heart meds, hair supps, Multi-vitamins, cinnamon, Zn, Mg, Ca, selenium supp, Vit E - breakfast
  • Water
  • Did EFT for:  nothing
  • Laundry:  clothes (2 loads), towels (1 load), uniforms (1 load)
  • Wash the Focus
  • Replace Boostaroo
  • Take laptop into Softque.
  • Update driver's license for my husband
  • Update my husband's ss card at the ss administration office in downtown Phx  
  • Make photo album for husband's mom & kids' Grandma M
  • Upload videos to YT for kids for karate. - Loaded this to the wrong YT account.
  • I need to get an estimate on the repairs and fax to them this week. 
  • Resolve format issues with some MP3s to my iPod.
  • Continue with job search.
  • File paperwork in crate.
  • Explorer Things To Fix List - rear 3rd brake light (whole assembly $120 + labor), passenger side powered mirror ($31 from eBay + labor), passenger front seat powered windows ($120-200 total), left rear tail light ($35 from eBay + labor), rear windshield wiper ($20 from eBay + labor), front hood strut mechanism, rear driver's side door fixing it ($200)
  • 10:00 pm - 6:00 am (7 hrs) - My husband woke me around 3:15ish or something like that after I fell back asleep when he came to bed around 3:00 am.  He really should go to bed earlier as it's not good for the health to always go to bed so late, but he doesn't listen. 
Breakfast  (6:30 am) - 2 BBQ pork buns

Post Workout Smoothie (10:00 am) - the remainder of my smoothie from yesterday but I added 1 scoop whey protein, a banana and some more ice.  Yummy!

Notes:  I loved this workout as it was short and sweet and I had to keep a high level of energy throughout most of it.  The hardest exercise to do was the Prisoner Getups.  I couldn't get back up after I went down for the 5th time.  Feeling good.  Today was the first time I ever set my GymBoss Timer to Vibrate, as my husband was still sleeping and I didn't want to wake him up with all the beeps.

I love ZGym and that I can work along with Zuzka, but when I did the pistol squats, I had to move to the bathroom where my Lifeline Jungle Gym was that was going to help me do the pistol squats and I had the video on low sound so as not to disturb my husband, hence the use of my GymBoss Timer.

For the warmup, I did much better today as it was my second time doing this and I was prepared for it.  It's a good warmup.
