Saturday 09.30.2023
1. 10 Jumping Jacks
2. Calves of Steel Day 29: 200 calf raises, throughout the day. Rating = 9.0.
3. Boxing: 20 minutes of speedbag/heavy bag (punching, kicking, strikes (knee, elbow, palm), back fist combos. Rating = 7.5.
4. BYNM: Day 7 | Crown Chakra | 777 Chakra Challenge.
5. 8.10 mile walk at the Ponds. 2:27:46.

❤️Boxing: Rating = 7.5. This was kind of a slog. I also had a headache…probably because of the flu shot.
❤️BYNM: Rating = 8.0. A fine session…just wasn’t feeling it today.

❤️Walk: 8.10 partially toasty miles with 2 claps of thunder. Wildlife spotted: various waterfowl, 1 small snake and a black squirrel.

Notes: Before the walk, I hurt my toe. It didn’t really bother me during the walk. Once I took off my shoe, it really bothered me to walk. Upon further inspection (removing my sock), I saw that it was swollen and bruised. I attempted to ice it to alleviate pain.

4. 3.25 mile walk outside. 58:36.

❤️Boxing: Rating = 7.5. Just ok. At least kicks didn’t hurt my toe.
❤️BYNM: Rating = 9.0. Just some easy stretches.
❤️Walk: Painful and slow.

Notes: My toe felt better. However, I was up for less for 2 hours when I hurt the same toe on the other foot. It hurt me all day and bothered me during the football shortened walk. I am the biggest klutz ever. The Broncos actually won.

1. 10 Jumping Jacks
2. 4 mile walk outside. 1:10:57.

Notes: I knew that I failed at the SAP because I saw my test results online. Today they called to discuss…nothing to discuss when the doctor (who wasn’t the one on the phone) already had his mind made up.

1. 10 Jumping Jacks
2. 4 mile walk outside. 1:09:47

Notes: A day I would like to forget. The highlight: while on our walk (after dinner in the dark) hearing a high school band’s rendition of Black Sabbath's Iron Man. It brought a smile to my face.

Thank you @JCU ❤️

Thursday 10.12.2023
1. 10 Jumping Jacks
2. 5 mile walk outside. 1:26.37.

Notes: Not only am I working late every day, once I leave work, I cannot shut my work brain off. I am under a lot of pressure so I will be doing “extra time” for a while. I need to get back to my workouts. My plan is this (and it’s worked for me in the past): schedule the extra work time in my calendar along with the shorter workouts and yoga. I need to take back some control.

1. 10 Jumping Jacks
2. Boxing: 20 minutes of speedbag/heavy bag (punching, kicking, strikes (knee, elbow, palm), back fist combos.
3. BYNM: Day 4 | 7 Day Yoga Challenge | 7 Minute Abs & Core Practice (with modifications) | 777 Re-uploaded.
4. Epic Arms Challenge Day 15: 32 bicep extensions, 10-count hold. 5 sets, 30 seconds active rest of march steps between sets. Rating = 9.0.
6. 2.15 mile walk outside. 36:36.

❤️Boxing: Rating = 8.5. Some sloppy kicks but otherwise decent.
❤️BYNM: Rating = 8.5. Abs and core aren’t my favorite but I like how she doesn’t hold poses for a long time.

Notes: Football Sunday. Today was ok. The Broncos couldn’t lose because they lost on Thursday. I did see the last 2 undefeated teams lose and kickers miss kicks. In one case, the 2 are related.

1. 10 Jumping Jacks
2. 5 mile walk outside. 1:29:09.

Notes: SSDD with the extra added bonus of breaking my bottom wisdom tooth on a Twix. I called the oral surgeon's office. They said as long as it’s not hurting, I can wait until my scheduled surgery on 11/3. It’s very creepy to be missing part of my tooth.

Notes: Eating and talking were a challenge today because I have a huge canker sore on my tongue (probably from rubbing on what’s left of the tooth).
