I Won't Break

I am going to fit in an after work 6 mile run in tonight. This afternoon I decided to work out via some Hulu videos. They have some Exercise TV workouts that I wanted to try.

I really hate doing squats and lunges. I know that they work quite a few muscles, but my knees are creaky. During one of the commercial breaks, I ran to take a glucosamine. I am not very good with taking pills everyday, but I guess doing this lower body workout and hearing noises come from my knees might make me remember.

I didn't think 20 minutes of squats was enough of a workout. I did the Upper Body immediately after. I had to make a few modifications because using 2 12 pound dumbbells was difficult/impossible in some spots. Mostly the Delt Flys and overhead triceps on one leg. I did like using one leg for some of the moves. Really worked the stability aspect of some of my muscles.

There was some jumping exercises that are mixed in at the end of a circuit. I always think that I SHOULD do low impact. Tap your foot side to side instead of jumping side to side. When I go high impact things jiggle and I sweat and I worry about my knees or whatever. But really, I think that it is an excuse. I CAN push myself to do higher impact workouts. I mean, I can slog on a treadmill for 2 hours, will a few squat jumps or jump to switch legs in a skater lunge break me? I am not a fragile little snowflake that will disintegrate if things are not ideal. I am not going to break. If I stay mindful on my form I CAN push myself and get the heart rate up a little higher.

I know that I may be a little behind on some things. But Hulu has Spirit Of The Marathon. I think I will watch it while I get ready for work. I have not seen it yet.

Have you ever been surprised at what your body can do?

What was your workout today?

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
