Dragging My Feet and Moving On

August 25, 2015

Ok, so I started my T25 Journey on July 20th, 2015. It is now August 26 and I have moved on to Week 5 (no one commented on previous post on whether to redo or move on). I could have redone week 4 like I talked about but I have got to keep moving. I’m beat up, but I can’t look back, only forward. Dreaded excuses but I’m really trying to tell myself to LISTEN TO MY BODY. That’s hard for me. Either way, I’m pretty disappointed in myself as I was hoping to finish BETA by the time we go to Florida for a wedding the last week of September. I’ll be a week shy, so perhaps I’ll finish BETA on holiday. HA HA HA. Right.

August 24-28: Week 5

August 31- September 4: Week 1 Beta

September 7-11 Week 2 Beta

September 14-18 Week 3 Beta

September 21-25 Week 4 Beta


Anyway, last night was Total Body Circuit. It was a good effort and I am completing all moves (still modifying half of the push up sets), sweat pouring more than ever it seems like.

I’m looking forward to measurement day. I have had three people this week mention my physique so that has to be a positive sign. A lady in my office actually commented on my “big arms”, I wasn’t sure whether to be offended or delighted. Such is life.

Diet is non-existent. I’m eating good clean food, and tracking calories but it is not something I’m too worried about as again I’m trying to listen to my body. Shakeology in the mornings is a Godsend (I drink it with coffee and ice) and I’m back taking ActiVit. I’m REALLY trying to stick to the no drinking during the week thing, it is hard but there is no booze in the house now so hopefully I can stave off the desire to pop over to the store and grab some nice frosty cold coronas. Die.

    Hi, there! I feel ya! I started my journey with Beachbody 10-Minute Trainer in 2011 and continued with Insanity and weight-training in 2012. Im a full time bodybuilder now but if I need to add cardio in my routine, I alwys turn to Beachbody on Demand. Oh, my! I just realized now while Im writing this that Beachbody totally changed my outlook in life, especially the way I eat… and I stopped going out for drinks except for the wine I sip from church during communion. I find that lifestyle change can only happen little by little, not abrupt, in order to become our second nature.

      Hi! I have done a couple rounds of Insanity and this is my second run with T25. I’m just now starting to lift. I’ll check out your blog later today. Thanks!

        You have done well, I see! I don’t really blog about my fitness journey here since Im still trying to figure out how WordPress works. All my contents are auto-post from other websites for now. I find your blog contents as inspirational. Cheers!
