I’ve already completed Tabata Power twice. The first time I maxed out at 9:42, the second 10:40. Today was a struggle to even press play. Between crappy eating habits this weekend and Aunt Flo arriving early, I just had no energy. It put my head in a bad state of mind. My head hurt and I just didn’t wanna! Working out is non-negotiable for me so I decided to chug down some E&E and just do it. Never have I been more grateful for those 10 second breaks. If it would have been the Cardio Challenge today I probably would have maxed out during the warm up. I didn’t let this funk bring me down though.
I kept telling myself to do it, to keep going. I passed minute 11 and was like I’ve got this. I can keep going. I passed minute 12 and was like whoa, this is crazy, minute 13, I was half dead. Then at 13:47 #IMaxedOut and was a little light headed. My mindset is a big weakness but at the same time my mindset is my biggest drive. Sometimes I push myself so hard that I end up pushing through the pain and hurt myself. That’s how I ended up with a knee injury last year but I think I’ve learned a little from that experience. I know that pushing myself makes me stronger but I legit felt like I was going to throw up after today. I had to sit down and drink some water. I’m proud though, I beat my last time by 3 minutes and 7 seconds!
You are the only thing holding yourself back! So quit and push play! I promise you won’t regret your new adventure. ❤
My time to be beat 9:38, I woke up with a little more energy today than yesterday. I can beat it!
I can’t help but wonder, did I not use my calves for anything before Max:30? Or does Shaun T just love to make them burn? Glad they aren’t sore like they were last week but just getting the warm up done, they were on fire! I was able to push through to 11:16 but wow, I got whooped.
Breakfast: Whole grain toast with coconut oil and almond butter.
Snack: Vanilla Protein Shake
Lunch: Brown rice with tofu, peas and left over lentil sauce. I don’t know about you but I cannot get enough peas in my life. I think it’s a toss up between them and broccoli as my favorite vegetable.
Snack: Celery and hummus, Vegan Chocolate Shakeology with 1/2 banana.
Dinner: Yet to be determined.
My goal of water is 128 ounces a day. Yesterday I drank water but I think I over did it on the coffee. I’m at 104 ounces at 2:24 pm, I’m well on schedule to meet my goal. Making sure you get enough water is super important. It helps me to log my water on my fit bit app. If I don’t log it, I tend to forget what my goal is. I’ll be carrying my water bottle around with me for the rest of the day to make sure I get it done!
