I started a 100-day Workout Challenge last year and this is a record of my experience. I’ll post five days at a time Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays until I am through it, then I will update where I am now and will start posting real-time weekly journals thereafter.
100 Day workout Challenge Day 56. Swam laps for about 45 minutes. the lanes were busy so I had to tread water in the deep end for about 15 minutes before I got my lane. Still have only received scant public acknowledgment of the pounds I lost so far, but I was able to comfortably fit into a pair of jeans I couldn’t wear eight weeks ago and that beats a compliment any day.
100 Day workout Challenge Day 57. Overslept swimming but had a fairly leisurely time visiting with Jane before work. Calories at 1600 walked for about an hour after work. feeling kind of down but had a stressful day at work so I am guessing it’s just the whole empathy thing.
100 Day Workout Challenge Day 58. So in yesterday’s post, I said I was going to walk for an hour. Well, at least that was my intention. I got about three quarters a mile away and it began to pour. I don’t mean your run of the mill rainfall, I mean a torrent. It was coming down in sheets. Every fiber of my clothing was steeped in precipitation. I was so wet I couldn’t even come down to the gym to finish. Thankfully when I got to my car I checked the time and it was exactly 30 minutes from the time I started. (seriously). So I lucked out as 30 minutes was the bare minimum I set up to qualify. Tonight I strength training (arms) I plan on getting it done asap and heading home. I have an abscessed tooth and it hurts and is also making me nauseous. Plus the usual stress from work.
100 Day Workout Challenge Day 59. Full on rage tonight. Not Hanger but just plain rage. As I progress on this journey, I am started now to become more emotionally aware. I do feel hungry sometimes, but I am starting to tell if the hungry is natural, or is brought on as an attempt to numb something else that I am feeling. (like fatigue, stress, or just being emotionally drained) Tonight it is mainly fatigue and stress. I went out for a long walk (about 6 miles. it took me about 90 minutes) I felt better afterward and no blisters and no sore body. I am not willing to press my luck and do this repeatedly but I am grateful that I was able to do it.
100 Day workout challenge day 60. Inching much closer to the 2/3 way point. This will mean twice as much behind me as in front of me. YEA!!! I know day 100 is only a ceremonial stopping point and the journey will continue but I am very pleased so far. I am actually doing this. 🙂 Swam for about 40 minutes would have done more but had to get to work (8hr OT day) Will be a long week, lots of OT scheduled. 1700 calories but was craving some protein. (probably from the weights the other night. I feel stronger overall, not sure how it looks though. Wish I was getting some unsolicited comments. but not willing to fish for them.
