Day 6 and I Just Got My Fix

Well, today wasn’t a natural regimen, and I was definitely out of breath. Doing as many reps as you can within a certain amount of seconds seems more complicated than just having a set number to do. Nevertheless, I persevered and got it done. That’s right, it’s day 6, and I got my fix, lol! The only exercise I really struggled with was the inchworm. I know I shared with you all that my knees are bad and pains me a lot. Well, I decided I was going to do mountain climbers because they seemed a lot less stressful on my joints. HUNNI, I was climbing the mountain and thought I was gonna pass out, lol.

I had to do it for 40 seconds, and can I tell you that 40 seconds is a long time for an overweight asthmatic. Laughing my butt off, but I would turn my head away from the timer so I could concentrate on breathing and getting those knees as high as I could. Around 20 seconds, I felt so winded, then around 10 seconds, I thought I was losing oxygen to the brain. I can laugh now because I really thought I was taking the easier route by modifying the workout. Still, chile whew, let me tell you it was not more comfortable. Anyway, I finished, showered, and am now able to share my workout journey with you. I never talk about my eating habits, so let me share that I’ve been doing intermittent fasting for about the last 6-7 months.

I fell off for a while, but not going crazy eating, I would eat when I felt like it. Sometimes, that was late at night, which I try NOT to do at all. So, because I’m so busy at work, I don’t open my window until about 4 or 5 pm, and it’s open 2-3 hours for me to eat what I want. Then the window closes, and I keep drinking water. I’ve never been big on breakfast except on the weekends. On the weekends, I’ll eat breakfast or rather brunch, and then I’m done for the day. The older I get, the less my stomach seems to desire and hold. I get full very quickly, and I don’t force myself to keep eating when I’m full. I’ve done that because something tasted so good and ended up nauseous and ready to vomit. I was always told as a child to eat everything on your plate, which probably contributed to my obesity. Now, even if I have more than I can eat on my plate, I eat what I want and save the rest for the next day. This may or may not work for everyone, but it works for me. Today was really a good day, and I’m grateful to be able to say that because not every day is a good one. Have the rest of a spectacular week, and I’ll talk to you all tomorrow for day 7:)

Until Next Time,
