Usually weekends are the hardest time for my training because I have my kids over. That might seem odd because, unlike a work day, I have the whole day to do whatever I want, whenever I want, right? But with the kids here, I want to pay attention to them.
I started out the day thinking I would just do my forms and the weekly challenge. Then I looked outside and saw the snow coming down hard. My girlfriend and I had to move our cars so the plow truck could clear the parking lot. Rather than come back inside, I waited out there and practiced all my punches and kicks, as well as my forms. Then all I had to do was the weekly challenge!
*250 punches in basic stance
*250 punches with pivot
*50 front kicks
*50 side kicks
*50 lift kicks
*50 low kicks
*50 stomp kicks
NOTE: The low and stomp kicks were my favorite part of today’s training because I was outside for that, and I was kicking the front tire on my car as a target. This was fun because when I use table legs and the couch as targets in my apartment, my girlfriend gets upset with me.
*Sil Lum Tao
10 Minute Trainer: Total Body 2
NOTE: I really felt a burn in my biceps today. On Lower Body (which was yesterday), I felt it even more so in my legs. That means I either pushed myself harder or my legs are in worse shape than I thought. The good news is, I’m progressing.
*BREAKFAST: Bread (1 grain), Peanut butter (1 protein), Apple (1 fruit)
*SNACK 1: Small orange, (1/2 fruit), Bread (1 grain), Milk (1 dairy)

DINNER: Shakeology (1 protein), Peanut butter (1 protein), Milk (1 dairy)
NOTE: Three cups of coffee today…ugh. However, I did pay attention to the portions of both cream and sugar, so I wasn’t too bad.
