In Workout Week posts I will tell you everything about my last week’s workouts.
Monday was BodyPumping day at the local fitness club. My best friend also decided to come although we both hate the equipment there. I had a good workout! My weights were what they usually are and I felt good.
Warm-up: 3,5+3,5 kg
Squats: 8,5+8,5 kg
Chest: 6+6 kg
Back: 6+6 kg
Triceps: 2,5 kg; 5 kg
Biceps: 3,5+3,5 kg; 2,5+2,5 kg
Lunges: 6+6 kg
Shoulders: 3,5+3,5 kg; 2,5+2,5 kg
Thursday: BodyPump. Last time at the local club here in Ida-Virumaa. Thank god. Can’t wait for normal equipment and conditions! It was a good workout, I really got tired and sweaty. Oh, since I got to the club early and got cold just standing and waiting, I had some extra time to run for about 13 minutes and around 2,2K. The BodyPump class takes place in an indoor track-and-field stadium (eesti keeles: kergejõustiku hall), so there’s a lap to run on 🙂 I actually liked running indoors to my surprise.
Friday was the last Zumba class with my BFF for a while. We’re both going to be busy with school and not working out together until March. But Zumba was still good! My friend has great tracks and choreography for us, I really like the songs she picks. Thanks, Triin! 🙂
Saturday: 45 minutes of swimming. 1,5K of front crawl. I was angry with myself and let everything out in training.
On Sunday I did something new: intervals aka fartlek running. I went to Ahtme Spordihall and did 15 minutes of warm-up, then 2+3+4+5+4+3+2 minutes fast with 2 minutes of steady running in between the fast intervals. I ended my workout with 10 minutes of slow running. In total it came to exactly 1 hour. Fast was around 5 min per km, steady around 6 min per km and slow 7+ min per km. All in total around 8,7 km. I could have pushed myself even harder but since it was my first time intervalling, I really didn’t know how hard to push. I’ll be smarter next time 🙂
3 hours 30 minutes of walking
2 hours of BodyPump
2 hours of Zumba
1 hour 45 minutes of swimming
1 hour of running
My workouts were great this week: 7 workout sessions in 7 days. That’s awesome. But there’s such a big BUT. My nutrition. It hasn’t been like this during my whole time of LCHF (Christmas and Thailand included). 3 words: cheating, overeating and chaos. All week long! 😦
Cheating with everything but mostly lots of grains. Ate a few big portions of porridge this week, many slices of (rye) bread and some sugar. This behaviour is so not me! The scales ofcourse reflected everything… I haven’t seen numbers like THAT since May 2013. A HUGE disaster! Overeating (or binging) is another huge topic. Too much low carb foods and also too much cheat foods. And chaos. Chaotic behaviour all week long. This week has been catastrophic! 😦 I’m really upset and things need to change. Professional help is perhaps needed…
In general I’m feeling like what’s the point of blogging about nutrition and sports if I’m failing big time? Who needs to read about my cheats? my weightgain not -loss? my bad mood and stress? No one.
New week, new semester at school and a new beginning? Hope so. Because if things continue this way, I’m going to back in February 2013 soon. I just have to stay positive and keep going!
