I am ridiculously tired today. Don’t know what’s wrong with me. Could literally just fall asleep. I’m upping my exercise which might be a factor. I’m trying to do cardio everyday while also throwing in Pilates style strength training. I need to do weights too 🙁 WHY ME!! Only little weights, maximum 5kg …
Should I come up with a weight plan. Ugh, I’m not going to do it but at least I have thought of a schedule to train my little flabby chicken arms. The excuse I’m going with is that the best exercise for my arms is tricep dips and I don’t have the balance in my legs to support me. That’s what I’m going with anyway.
Yesterday I only did 20 minuets of cardio hahaha, I get bored. When I go to the gym I spend longer on the bike. Mainly because their bike is more comfortable than mine, I do about 40 – 45 minutes. I can really focus at the gym, work on my calorie count rather than just the time on my crappy bike. It’s a really good machine, I’d get one but it’s £7’000 and I don’t have that kind of money to spend on a exercise bike.
Then I did 10 minuets of floor exercises. I have a little routine of hip bridges, leg raises, crunches, the pilates 100, squats, clamshells, hamstring curls, upward dog. Basically all lying down so I can be lazy and just roll around on the floor. Well apart from the squats but sometimes I kneel when I do those. I do 3 sets of 10 reps of each of these it doesn’t really take long, about 10 -15 minuets. So it is my aim to do this everyday …… well we will see.
It is good for me though. It’s just you know, exercise. I would rather be lying on my bed eating doughnuts but instead I have to do crunches to give me a flatter stomach and you know stop my knees hurting. The stronger I am the better. I do really miss horse riding, I need to start that again.
I don’t mind working out at home tbf, I kind of prefer it rather than you know, going to the gym and not always being able to use the equipment you want. It’s just difficult sometimes because I do need help and the gym is very accommodating but yeah. Having it all set up at home is easier. Also I can look ugly at home, I mean I am no looker when I go to the gym but you feel as though your outfit should match at least. At home I can have Pasta stains on my top and not brush my hair. Also I can snapchat my workout and pretend to be a Kardashian.
I’m so tired though, I just want to go to bed. This is what death feels like.
I’m hungry too …. want some food, not just water. Corn on the Cob, that’s what I’m in the mood for. Sweet corn and bread.
Do not comment on peoples weight, just don’t. I hate it. Serena Williams has designed a catsuit for her to play matches in. She is one of the best female tennis players in the world and all she gets is “did you see what she was wearing!”, “she has such a big bum, it’s wrong”. What the hell!! Why was her performance not mentioned? If she was on the red carpet I could understand her clothing being the topic of conversation but when she is playing sport, for her job, her outfit should not be the main focus. The thing is the tighter her outfit the more streamlined she’ll be and the fabric will be breathable and easy for her to move. So for someone to comment on her physical stature is not okay. She is an athlete not a Victoria Secrets model, her goal isn’t to be tall and lean but as strong and fast as possible. It’s what makes you so self conscious, because people always make unnecessary comments towards whatever you do. It goes back to the age old saying ‘if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. But I really do stand by this, not much point in always saying negative comments because that’s filling your atmosphere with ‘negative energy’. But seriously everyone judges, it’s human nature, it’s what you do after that defines you.
