My SMART Quest for today is: Snap myself out of the depressive funk I am feeling. Amazingly I am managing to stay on track with my workouts. My eating has been off a bit but not because I am eating too much, but rather that I don't feel like eating and have been skipping meals. This is odd for me as I love to eat!

SLEEP: 5 1/2 hours - I went to bed again at 11:30 pm , awoke at 5:00 am
AWOKE: 5:00 am
WARM UP: 5:25 am - Still adding extra reps to my warm up! Feels good
Push Ups x 12
Metabolic Acceleration Phase - Week 5
5 Tabata Intervals
These are timed Intervals: Set your Gymboss Timer to 2 intervals of 30 seconds & 10 seconds and 8 rounds. Each round is 5:20 minutes/seconds. 26:40 total
Jumping Jacks - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 40, 40, 41, 40, 42, 44, 42, 43 reps per round. This was a great way to get my heart going!
Suicide Drills - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 25, 24, 24, 23, 24, 23, 23, 25 reps per round!
BOSU Mountain Jumper Push Ups - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds -9, 8, 8, 7, 8, 7.5, 7, 7 reps per round! These were killer. I had a tough time getting through all of the rounds. I was dripping sweat after this! Whooo!
Jump Squats with Side Kicks (wearing ankle weights) - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 4 Rounds per leg. Left Leg - 18, 19, 19, 19 reps per round! Right Leg - 19, 19, 18, 17 reps per round!
One Arm Press Up -(From Zuzana'a BodyRock.tv, see photo below) 7, 8, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7 reps per round! I was exhausted, these were hard to do today!
I don't know what I was thinking trying to do these again as a Tabata! It was hard last time and this time was no better! My abs were on Fire! I was crying through this! 8 rounds could not come quick enough!
Meal #2: 9:30 am - 1 small banana
Meal #3: 3:30 pm - a few bites of low cal orange chicken
Meal #4: 8:00 pm - roasted chicken, small portion of chili bread
WATER: 6 glasses (so far)
MINDSET: I just haven't been feeling well. I don't know what is up. Emotionally I am down and drained. I know I am not getting enough sleep and my personal life is really bringing me down. I have to go to Las Vegas this weekend for my daughter's cheer competition, so I hope I snap out of this and can be good with the eating. I will probably not be able to work out on Saturday unless I find a place to workout!
