Week 4 ~ TapouT XT

Day 22 ~ September 3 September 10 ~ Competition Core
~ Week 4 has official started and im counting down the days till day 30 and our next weigh-in. Although Im scared for it, I dont feel like Im losing anything in either pounds or inches but then it can take up to 12 weeks for changes to be seen and thats still along way to go. Tim and I talked and we think we will do a year straight of TapouT which Im really excited about that.
~ So as you can tell dates have been crossed out and post has been crossed out. Last week got seriously screwed up and was only able to complete two days of it so we decided to just restart it. I will say that Im surprised that I will push myself to the point that I feel the burn but i dont sweat that much or at least not to were i notice it. I dont even feel sore the next day anymore and Im not sure if thats a good thing or not.

Day 23 ~ September 4 September 11 ~ Buns&Guns + Ultimate Abs
Well barely made it through buns&guns but didnt make it through ultimate abs. Im not sure what is wrong but everytime I move, talk, breath or do anything sharp pains shoot through my shoulder and up my neck. Im starting to think its not a pinched nerve but maybe has to do with how i am sleeping and the mattress. Im also shivering to the point i cant hold still. Im pushing through it all and doing every home remedy I possibly can cause we literally have no money and no insurance to pay for any medical care. It sucks but I will not give up, I will take it easy and listen to my body but I will not give up.

On another note, today would have been our 30 day weight in and photos is we had worked out all last week like planned but since we skipped a week the weight in is being pushed to the 18th. 

Day 24 ~ September 5 September 12 ~ Muay Thai
~ This is by far my favorite workout! Its easy yet its hard. For once Im actually able to complete an entire workout and feel it and see the sweat. Im happy to say that Im glad my neck/shoulder loosened up and wasnt hurting when it came time. Although I believe it has something to do with how i sleep so i may be waking up in the morning stiff and in pain again. I think its time for a new mattress or something.

Day 25 ~ September 6 September 13 ~ Yoga XT
~ Totally kicked my ass! Yoga usually is pretty easy for me but apparently taking a week off did more then I thought. Only thing is Tim got a good laugh at me tonight, I went to go into one of the side plank moves and me not having the mats braced they moved out from under me and down i went. Although it either scared Trystan or he thought I was hurt cause he started crying.

Day 26 ~ September 7 September 14~ Sprawl & Brawl
~ ...~ Dont worry I did the workout just forgot to post ~...~

Day 27 ~ September 8 September 15~ Cardio XT + Ultimate Abs
~ Ugg cardio cardio cardio lol wow. You start sweating before the warm-up is even over. I may say though I love it. Although the only problem is that I cant stand to work out in regular shoes, I cant stand my new skeletoes, I HAVE to be barefoot or Im not comfortable and dont feel like I can grip the floor or mats good enough to stabilize myself with doing some of the moves. Now the problem with that is that after a while my feet start to hurt :(  I can work through it and everything and soak my feet every night buts its just the whole mind over matter thing. Oh well...anyway 30 day weight-in and measurements are Tuesday!

Day 28 ~ September 9 September 16 ~ Rest Day

Week 3 ~ TapouT XT

Day 15 ~ August 27th ~ Cross Core Combat
~ I am kinda sad to say that I was not able to start my early AM workouts this morning like I wanted but that is partly because my 7 month old (as of today) Trystan decided that bed time was not till midnight last night, so there was no way I was getting up to workout after only 4 and a half hours of sleep. I am actually getting ready to head to bed right now at 10pm so I can get up early. Im kinda nervous and excited to starting my solo early morning workouts. At least this way I will most likely be the only one in the gym and wont have to worry about looking like an idiot in front of anyone.

Day 16 ~ August 28th ~ Strength & Force Upper + Ultimate Abs
~ Forgive me this may be short, Im trying to get to bed early so I can get up early and there is a scream 7 month old. Anyway Tim and I will both be most likely feeling this workout in the morning, we both get snapped by the resistance bands. He got it pretty bad on the back and I got it on the butt and back before it tangled in my pony tail, OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!  Anyway that will teach us not to use the bands without shoes.

Day 17 ~ August 29 ~ Plyo XT
~ Im still sore from yesterday and im even more sore now from today! Ive given up on trying to do AM workouts this week, I may try next week but for now its pointless cause between the two kids they wont let me go to bed early or get much sleep. oh well at least with doing the workouts in the evening its allowing me to go into a deeper sleep.

Day 18 ~ August 30 ~ Yoga XT
~ Had to skip todays workout, will be getting up in the early morning and doing it.

Day 19 ~ August 31 ~ Legs & Backs
~ Two workouts in one day to catch up, hopefully NEVER again!!!!!!! Im beat, im sore just sitting here lol thankfully tomorrow is sprawl and brawl then rest day. I also was able to order two sets of puzzle mats, each set contains 6 2'x2' squares that connects together so with the two sets we will have an area of 6'x8' covered with mat. We also ordered Fila Skele-toes shoes and toes socks to go inside of them. We still have some things that we need for our workouts but they will have to wait.

Day 20 ~ September 1 ~ Sprawl & Brawl
~ Well tonights workout was kinda a bust, I messed up my shoulder somehow with about 15 minutes left to the point that I could put any weight on it. Then when I tried to I ended up hurting my wrist. Made sure I came home and took a warm bath to let my shoulder soak. My shoulder was feeling better by the time I went to bed so thats good.

Day 21 ~ September 2 ~ Rest Day
~ Rest day and totally needed after last night. Woke up with my shoulder stiff and hurting when I would move it, been up for a while now and its better. Guess thats a hint to take it easy and not push past my boundaries. Oh well Im pretty well looking forward to week 4 since there are two new workouts.
