Strong God - Meredith Andrews

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God I got my workout done with much better form than the first time I did this workout.
  • Thank you God the kids have a three day weekend.
  • Thank you God for the delicious, healthy foods.
  • Thank you God for my husband getting an in person interview.  He passed the phone interview.
  • Thank you God this tank of gas for the Explorer lasted 24 days!!!  
  • Grateful my dad lets us use his cars, which his cars get much better gas mileage, so we don't have to get gas as often or spend as much on gas.  We are doing oil changes for his cars, keeping it cleaned, getting them washed regularly.
  • It's nice to get all my subcon work done and still have some time left for the evening.
  • My husband from his phone interview today with a company based in Ohio, but has an office here in Mesa now has an in person interview next week.  Yay!
  • Very glad the kids don't have to go to school tomorrow.  Feeling burned out from all the school stuff.  It does feel nice to sleep in until 6:00 am each morning now.  The past month plus getting up earlier has been challenging, but has made me better to usually go to sleep earlier, so that is a plus.
  • My body isn't feeling sore from the workout as it did last time, so this is good.  But my upper back and neck areas are feeling a little stiff.  So, I had the TENS on my upper back for about 30 min and I had to put it pretty high.  Then I put the electrodes on my neck carefully at a lower intensity.  
  • Glad I can intercede in prayer for other people.
  • Probiotic & 2x krill oil - before breakfast

Notes:  Last time I did this, which was Week 1, I used a 15 lb kettlebell.  Today since I have a 20-lb kettlebell, I am using that for all the exercises.  I was so wiped out the first time doing this and sore for a few days.

Very interesting compared to the last time I did this which was 2.5 weeks ago.  The heart rate pattern is similar, but times are different.  My heart rates were almost 10 bpm less during each round, meaning my body is adapting quickly.  And though I used a heavier kettlebell and feel like I was more focused and pushed harder, my heart didn't feel as stressed.  Very excited to see this progress with my heart.
