"Trust The Awesomeness"
I am moving things around again to better fit my work / life balance :happy:

Out: running for 20 minutes
In: walking for 45-60 minutes

I am ditching my morning training sessions in favor of lunch-time training. I tend to have low energy between 2PM and 4PM so I figured just as well fill an hour there with exercise. So after I walk the doggos I now have breakfast and just work until the cows come home until it's time to exercise. Initially I didn't think it'd work but it actually helps with my energy levels. And the most important thing is that I am less obsessive about training these days and that changing things up no longer gives me anxiety. OR it's because I've been dosing my food :confused: I am joking... or am I? I do add a bit of ashwagandha to my smoothies here and there these days so that might be it. Overall I've been feeling great and that's an achievement in itself.

I have my second training sessions at 8PM as usual. I have extended it now to 1hr but I basically work through my strength training routines, whatever needs testing for DAREBEE, new things I want to try + some stretching towards the end. I do it all at my own pace while watching YouTube.

Currently I am participating in testing of the new ab program for March so my ab-work shifted as well. All I can say is.. Ouch.

I am still hanging on the bars daily. My current best time is: 2 minutes.

Food wise I am trying to eat as many veggies as I possibly can. I recently discovered this amazing salad I am pretty sure is going to be a thing for a while (once I like something I eat / do it until I am pretty much sick of it). It's super simple: 2 grated carrots, chopped up coconut flakes, cashews and almonds - mixed together. Deliciousness. And tofu, I eat lots of tofu and tempeh. In the evenings I either make cauliflower in batter, mushroom soup or HUGE vegetables casserole. Today is a mushroom soup day!

That's a rough picture of my current schedule :happy: Thank you for stopping by!

:loveu:

@Logan yes @lpf and yes :crawl:
I am testing it with the optional equipment variations :pmode:

Now that we are only a couple of weeks away from the official release (and the Hive is getting it even earlier) I can say more about it :happy: It's pure ab-focused program rated level 4, but it goes up a level if you choose to use equipment. The equipment you will need is a pull-up bar and an exercise bench. I suppose you can come up with other creative solutions like chairs and tricep bars, too. It's not too bad overall... but the two workouts per week kinda make you re-think ever taking it on. I am just glad that we did grip strength last month :amused:
