RI30 – L1D2 (But this is not about that)

Quick post, I hope, because I need to go to bed. But this might be rambly. A life – non-fitness post. Continue reading


Ripped in 30 – L1D1

  • Started Ripped in 30 — missed Jillian too much to say goodbye. Um, I’m sore already. Finally graduated on to 5 lb weights.
  • Juiced for the first time ever! With a blender and two strainers. Took a lonnnng time. Next time I’ll use a juicer.
  • Super excited to be drinking juice tomorrow morning though πŸ˜€ I tried a bit of it and it’s lovely.
  • Made gross “digestive” cookies with the pulp + flax + chia + quinoa. Gross. But healthy! I don’t like to waste.
Studying somehow on schedule. If all goes well I’ll be done with everything by Thursday when Rosanna comes to visit and will just need to review from then on.

30DS Day 29 (!), Insanity Fit Test

I’m pooped.

Been weighing in lighter every day that I haven’t worked out. Is it because of my smoothies? But last night I had huge chicken chunks around midnight. Plus dark chocolate-covered blueberries every day…

Too weak for real Insanity, so I’m going to pick a couple moves and do them every few days. πŸ˜€

My only joys in life now are sleep and updating this blog.

Why am I posting instead of working out (or sleeping)?

An hour ago I was yawning constantly and trying to finish the last couple minutes of my online seminar for the exam. Once done, surge of energy! Okay, I’m getting tired. It’s 1:35 am. I took a two-hour nap today, but I’ve been averaging 4-5 hours a night. Work is crazy busy so I’ve been behind on my study hours. If I hadn’t gotten two sections (and a chapter) in tonight, I would’ve felt majorly stressed about tomorrow.

But overall, lately, things have been good. I think I’m in a relatively stable place right now. I eat when I want to eat, and I don’t feel so guilty about it. I don’t feel so guilty about not working out for the past two days either, although my body wants to because I have awful posture when I’m sitting, and I sitΒ all the time. I’m all jammed up. By the way, STILL sore from Insanity. It’s been two days! It’s like parts of me got less sore and the parts that were sore but not as sore comparatively are now louder as a result.

The only thing about food is that I can’t cook what I crave, and right now I’m craving winter melon soup. I want to switch up my vegetables so bad! But djflsj no time or SKILLS.

Insanity Day 2: Plyo

It’s been a long day, and I almost didn’t make it down to the basement tonight. Glad I did. Should’ve studied more–only got 4.5 hours in, all during the day–but maybe I’ll take a shower and do a problem or two. It’s a busy week at work and some unnecessary drama’s been grating on my nerves. Ventured briefly back into K-pop tonight, which is how you know things are kind of low (rhyme!). Not sure why I associate K-pop with being unhappy now. I guess it reminds me of a time (arguably still ongoing) when I felt most displaced and directionless. I am definitely direction-ed now, but not really by choice? Well, let’s not go there.

I think tomorrow’s gonna be a rest/light workout day. I’ll probably be sore. I already was a bit today!
