All Things Possible - Mark Schultz

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God I have 14 out of the 20 workouts done for this challenge, almost 75% through and feeling great.
  • Thank you God for my talk with LH about health, fitness stuff.
  • Thank you God I only had to go to two places today.
  • Thank you God I got all my Friday subcon work done.
  • Thank you God I got to sleep in today.
  • My neck and upper back are feeling much better after using the TENS unit on it for quite awhile last night.  It felt really stiff and the electrical stimulation really helped a lot.  I also used my accu-masseur on the sides of my neck gently, to help with any trigger points in the sternocleidomastoid.  The stress really builds up here and trigger points form.  Sometimes this is the cause of my headaches, trigger points in the sternocleidomastoid.  And, earlier this week, I was reading that having trigger points here can cause one to be more prone to nausea and motion sickness.  Wow, so this is an area I need to work on and I wonder when I get this under control, will I be able to do sit up like motions without nausea or ride better in a car without nausea?
  • I'm going to investigate the Whole 30 thing.  I've done paleo before, so I don't see this being super different.  I don't feel bad, but I know I could always make improvements and I know there is a lot of junk in my diet, so there's plenty of room for improvement here.  It seems the Whole 30 site is not working correctly.
  • Since I started the workouts, it seems like I'm always hungry, which I don't like that, so that is another reason for doing the Whole 30 or at least investigating it and possibly taking some actions towards better eating.
  • I am not going to drink anymore Dr. Pepper the rest of May at least.  I did cut out Coke and Diet Coke, so I can do that also with Dr. Pepper.
  • My husband thinks I am eating because of anxiety and stress.  Well, the thing is, that seems constant and the only real thing that is different is the exercise, so I don't think the increased hunger is from stress.
  • Just as I stopped making excuses for the exercise, I'm going to ask God to help me with eating healthy whether or not my husband wants to join in or agrees or not.  He eats A LOT of junk and though not in large portions, throughout the day he has combinations of sodas, junk food, candies, etc.  I don't want to eat this way and found that I am more a social eater and if he's eating, I want to also, which I need to just cut that out whether he does it or not.  I can't force him to eat better, but I can make better choices for the kids and I.
  • The phone was ringing off the hook for my husband today from mid morning through to the late afternoon.  Hopefully he will have more than 1 in person interview next week.  I have an interview with a recruiter next week.  A challenge with all the kids school stuff, my subcon work to do a whole lot on my job stuff, but I do get time each week to do some stuff.  Exercise seems under control as well as sleep, now to reign in the eating and to get busier and more persistent with the job stuff.

Notes:  I was dripping in sweat, but this workout did not raise my heart rate.  The portion that did were the lunges, but the rest did not.  However, I woke up my glutes, hams and some quads were a bit sore and stiff, but not too bad.  This was a good workout for feeling how I physically felt.  Unlike the first time I did this workout, which was almost 2 weeks ago, which is my first very early morning workout in probably over 10 years, I did decide that I did need to do a warm-up and a cooldown.

Since the kids didn't have to go to school today, I got to sleep in until almost 7:00 am and it feels good.  It's now 8:35 am as I write this.  My husband and kids are asleep and I'm on my third load of laundry and about to begin my subcon work.
