D18 & D19 Oct '11 - Not Letting Work Stress Affected My Workouts!

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Day #18 & Day #19, Tuesday 18th & Wednesday 19th October 2011

Still heavy workload, I think my eyes were getting drier, probably a mix of very cold area and staring too long at computer! I still want to have a little tiny bit control with my life so instead of dove right into my bed after work, I persuaded myself to do at least 10 minutes workout and somehow I ended up with more than 20 minutes (but luckily not an hour), yay!

Trackers result:
1. Meals & water
Day #18: Rice 1 cup, Freggies 2 servings and Water 2.5 litres.
Day #19: Rice 4 cups, Freggies 1 serving (I think 1 bowl of stir-fry long beans is 1 serving, right?), Water 2.6 litres.

2. Sleep
Day #18: 7 hours (I overslept but got nice long sleep!)
Day #19: 6 hours

3. Exercise:
Day #18 = total 36 minutes strength workout.
Mid-morning, 6 minutes, Staggered Pushup 1 set of 15 reps + Wall Pushup 1 set of 15 reps + Reverse Plank 1 set of 40s. 2 minutes stretches.

Night, 30 minutes, Modified Pushup 1 set of 32 reps + Curl to Press with 5lbs dumbbells 4 sets of 8 reps + Two-arm Kickback with 5lbs dumbbells 4 sets of 8 reps + Lateral Raise with 5lbs dumbbells 4 sets of 6 reps + Front Raise with 5lbs dumbbells 4 sets of 6 reps + Bent-Over Flye with 5lbs dumbbells 4 sets of 6 reps. 5 minutes stretches (did a 3-min warm up prior night workout, marching while swinging arms)

Day #19 = total 35 minutes strength workout.
Night, 35 minutes, Squat 3 sets of 32 reps + Forward Lunges 2 sets of 15 reps +Lateral Lunges 2 sets of 15 reps + Side Lunges Knees Up 1 set of 15 reps. 4 minutes stretches.

    Actually, rice is a grain/starch, unless you sprout it (wonder what that would taste like...), but it does fall into the carb category. emoticon emoticon

    Great job keeping up with the workouts! Seeing how you always take the time to get yours in, keeps me motivated to stay on top of mine!

    I ate more than that, hehe. The trackers is for my meal goals, which are how much cups of rice, servings of freggies and water intake. I once tracked all what I eaten but I ended up very confuse, so now I restart with trackings things that I want to get control first.

    Thanks for the advice :D

    Wow if I ate that little I wouldn't make it through a workout let alone a day. Doesn't sound like very much food to me? If this is normal intake for you? Keep up the good veggie intake, along with the water. Rice is also a vegetable too, so seems you are doing pretty good. What about any protein in your diet? You've got to eat a well rounded diet. Oh, excuse I am talking like a mother, aren't I. Just trying to pass on some knowledge I have learned over the years about food. emoticon emoticon
