Round 2: Day 4 of 100

Today's workout was a boxing session at Penalosa gym in Libis. The mitt rounds gave me a good burn, but the speed ball, hanging ball, and punching bag did not do a lot for me. The jump rope warm up was nice, too, as I watched my wrist rotate the rope...I think my singles technique is getting's hoping I get to do a skip soon.

Here are the rounds I did after warming up: 3 rounds of jump rope; 3 rounds mitts, 3 rounds punching bag (I imagined this was the guy I 'like'), 3 rounds hanging ball, 3 rounds of speed ball (this always frustrates me to no end because I can't do it with 2 hands...practice!),  and 2 rounds of mitts again. I did not do the ab exercises anymore and proceeded to the stretching. My knuckles have some angry red lines. OMO.

Food journal:

Brekkie shake
1 multi-grain roasted chicken with canadian back bacon sandwich
2 pieces pichi-pichi (waahhh yummy)
1 americano grande
1 cucumber and carrot juice
1 cup chicken tinola, 1 piece chicken breast and green papaya
1 serving (palmful) roasted chicken

I met up with a friend I have not seen for a long time and he was surprised that I was slimmer. Hurrah for small victory! ^_^

Round 2: Day 3 of 100

No picture of today's workout. I was set on not working out today because we got home late, and I avoid working out after 8PM if I have work the following day as it messes my sleeping time. I am trying to get back on track in terms of waking up at 430AM.

But, when I thought of my workout journal and realized I will have nothing to input, I decided to do 100 modified push ups. I did more...when I was standing on the mat, my legs automatically did a squat and I decided to do 4 rounds of 25 body weight squats and 25 push ups. Gave me quite a sweat, to be honest, and enough burn on my muscles.

Food journal:
Brekkie shake
1 americano grande
6 bakeded tofu slices
romaine lettuce
tuna and baked beans (with yogurt, mustard, and jalapeno, split in 2; ate 1 serving)
2 slices of sugar free bread
1/4 cup chop suey
1 french roll with butter
1 lentil bean soup with chorizo
1 plain ice cream sundae
1 glass cucumber and carrot juice

---Too many sugars for the day. Boo.

Round 2: Day 2 of 100

Today's workout was brought to you by the ripped Craig Ballantyne. He makes body weight circuit training look easy, but holy crap on a cracker is it hard! I have been doing body weight workouts for more than a year now, and it still amazes me how much using just my body can tire me out. This was physically and mentally challenging for me, particularly the spiderman pushups (that's 20 reps not 15) because I felt my arms could not perform the pushup so I did the spiderman minus the pushup. I know, what a cop out, huh? Anyway, after the 2nd round, I was wiped and was catching my breath and wanted to give up. I had to take a 3-minute break while mentally psyching myself up to finish everything. I thought of the improvements I made and the taunts of some people that I cannot do it. It made me push myself to finish the entire circuit. Took me 35:31 minutes, and I pretty much wanted to sleep on the mat during my cool down. I was that beat.

Food log: Ah, today, I have been a bad girl, screwing my fairly clean diet a little. It is my nephew's 7th month so we had pizza for snacks and spaghetti and fried chicken wings for dinner. So here's what I inhaled the entire day:

Brekkie shake (I never change the ingredients so for all intents and purposes, I will only write the name moving forward, unless I add something)
1 grande americano (I always drink black coffee)
1 cup ginataang langka
2 tilapia fillet
1 pritong lumpiang togue (so sinful!)
romaine lettuce with apple cider vinegar with honey
1 slice pepperoni pizza
1 cup spaghetti with meat and white sauce (parmesan and chilli flakes)
1 fried chicken wings

Whew...that was a lot. Back to regular programming tomorrow. I could use a veggie cleanse.

Round 2: Day 1 of 100

Today's workout is care of Craig Ballantyne of Turbulence Training. After completing the circuit, I finished it with a 4-minute tabata composed of 4 exercises (body weight squats, thrusters with 5lb db, low jacks, and side lunges). The pull ups were really challenging, but all in all, good work out.

Food journal:
brekkie shake (1 cup water, 1 cup almond milk, 70 grams oatmeal, 2 scoops vanilla whey protein)
1 americano grande
4 chicken breast fillet adobo (eaten during lunch and pre-workout)
2 ensaladang talong
1 fresh lumpia without wrapper
8 oz water + 1 scoop vanilla whey protein

100 days of fitness (1st round): Day 10 - 8th of February

I moved my workout today after work (more like 4 hours after) because I had a concall at 530AM. I was very sleepy when I got home so I took a 10-minute nap and forced myself to get out of the bed and workout the Bonchon lunch I had. I received a compliment today that I lost weight already so yes, forging through!

Today's workout was a 20-minute interval (tabata) cardio sweatfest. Do 8 rounds of 20 seconds work; 10 seconds rest for each exercise:

1. jump rope (originally high knees with jump rope but i can only do the beginner level for now)
2. burpees (damn yooouuu)
3. long jump with squats then jump backwards 2x (no fancy title haha)
4. kb swings (8lbs)
5. leg shuffles (hard to explain but yes, was the easiest of them all)

I had to rest for 3 minutes after the 3rd exercise because I was just out of breath. Again, a simple looking work out but very deceiving. Try it!

MY food intake wasn't that good because I had 1 cup of white rice and double-fried chicken. Bonchon, why soooo good?

6am breakfast 1 cup almond milk 1 cup water 1 cup oats

730am cafe americano grande

1145am 1 cup white rice 4pcs bonchon wings 1 small iced tea

430pm 3/4cup red rice, 1 salmon sinigang steak

815pm 1 granola bar
