Results from week 2: "Sh!t or get off the pot!"

Week Two Overview: Results for "Beating my Personal Bests"

Many times I think people do monotonous mediocre workouts just to be able to say that they 'did' it. But if you're not going to push yourself to the max each and every time then I just don't see the point. Revisiting workouts that I've done in the past definitely gave me the motivational boost I was hoping to find this week. I was able to push harder, up the intensity and sweat more which resulted in way better scores. After one workout I thought to myself "Was I even trying last time???" because my scores were exponentially better this time around. Everything in green indicates that I beat my personal best.

But then I came down with a terrible cold on Thursday and because of that I wasn't able to do my workout for Friday or Saturday. Today is Sunday and I'm not all recovered but I did my workout for Friday and it shows how weak I am because not only did I not beat my previous score for several exercises, I didn't even match it. I attempted to push for Saturday's workout on top of Friday's but after a four minute rest period I felt my body disliking what I was doing to it. So I called it quits for the day. Gave myself a pat on the back for trying. But promised that I'll do better tomorrow.

*As a disclosure, the previous post is about cupcakes and just to clarify I love baking but I don't actually eat my creations (Husband and I sample tiny portions to ensure the product has good flavor and texture). I enjoy the process of baking and decorating but mostly I make desserts for others to enjoy.*
