“I always loved running…it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.” Jesse Owens
Okay-so about a year ago I was snooping around online looking for a Britney Spears-ish workout. Apparently this is her exact workout routine she followed when she was in her “prime” (I’m guessing the early 2000’s). I love it…but it takes me forever because I’m so out of…
“I run because it’s so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can’t. But then you find your inner strength and realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought.”—Arthur Blank (via healthyquest)
“Why do I run? Because running is empowering. Running is my therapy: a chance to clear my mind, to challenge my fears, to find inspiration and powerful ideas.”—Unknown (via run-like-theres-no-tomorrow)
Set your alarm for 6am. Don't groan when it goes off and pull the covers over your head, get up and start your day. Put on a baggy top and running shorts. Go downstairs and pour yourself a nice big glass of ice water. Cut up some fruit and mix it in with yogurt. Add some granola. Now go outside. Stretch for 10 minutes. Skip for 5 minutes. Jog for 10 minutes. Run for 10 minutes. Walk back. Lay out a towel on the ground and lie down on it. Do 50 crunches. Yes, they hurt, but they are 100% worth it. When you're done, get in the shower. Use a nice smelling shampoo and matching conditioner. Shave your legs and wash your body. Exfoliate your face. Get out of the shower and let your hair air dry. Look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? If you do, good for you. Do this every day and you will continue to love yourself. If you don't like what you see, do this every day and pretty soon you will. Being lazy might feel good at the time, but being active feels better in the long run. How badly do you want it?
Well…this still sucks. I am jealous of all you people who are healthy, you keep doing your thing and get some exercise.
I’ll try my best to also:
Trip to Grocery Store (if fever is down)
30min of POP Pilates Ab Workouts
3 sets of 20 bicep curls, 12 tricep extensions, and 10 ea side bend over rows.
Now I have an allergic reaction to something. Looks like I’ll be taking it easy today…again…
I can’t stand just laying in a bed all day not getting any exercise.
I feel a little fatigue still but I decided to walk around my backyard and swing. It’s not much exercise, but it’s Better than none at all right?
This makes me so sad. I have a fever and a headache. Everything hurts. My appetite has gone down so I think I lost a couple pounds of muscle mass:(
Should I even try to workout?
Should I eat the same amount of food?
Hopefully I can walk/jog for a while to see how my shins are doing.
Then my usual circuit from Fitbie Magazine, legsercise video (POP pilates), and an Ab workout.
Oh and Costco shopping! That’s gotta count for some exercise right?
Scratch all that posted. I didn’t do ANYTHING because my immune system decided to crash. Im very fatigue, should I still workout?
