I can’t believe that I am already up to Day 40 in the Hero’s Journey Program! I’m two-thirds done and the days are just zipping by quickly now it seems!
Part one was a core workout that I got through fairly fast and Part two was standing on one foot, with arms out to sides, with eyes closed for a minute. It sounds incredibly easy but it’s not!!
Day 8 ~ Share something you struggle with
Something I struggle with is organizing my time well enough for everyone or everything who needs or requires it, and still find some time simply for me.
More time in a day can’t be created as it’s set amount (obviously), so this is challenging and stressful some days and less on others.
Day 39 of Hero’s Journey on Level 2 (7 sets) was actually rather tough today. I looked at it last night and again this morning and thought “piece of cake” and yah… not really the case!
My shoulders and upper back are not impressed with me at the moment… and I did a good warm-up before getting into it as well!
I did Hero’s Journey on Level 3 (10 sets) instead of Level 2 (7 sets) today. The goal today was to work on speed so it was 60 punches in 30 seconds and 90 high knees in 30 seconds.
Not terribly difficult for me at all as I am doing well above the required amount for each of these exercises already, but the Daily Dare was a good pick on Darebee today!
Day 7 ~ List 10 songs that you’re loving right now.
1. Cake By the Ocean – DNCE
2. Dirty Souls – Five Knives
3. Shake My Bones – Five Knives
Level 2 with slow reps for the first part of Hero’s Journey this morning, it had my arms and core shaking like crazy! I picked pull-ups (doing 10 reps again!), free weights with 35 lbs, and turning kicks for the second part, Weapons’ Practice today.
I decided against doing planks today as the Total Abs exercises were actually pretty challenging for me on Level 3. This is the first time since I started this program, so figured I wouldn’t like to be super sore tomorrow making tomorrow’s daily stuff even harder than it needed to be!
Finished the 7-Day Micro HIIT Program today, it ended with a ton of burpees!! My shoulders are definitely feeling a bit tight this evening that’s for sure!
I am continuing on with the Meditation 30-Day Challenge, still loving it so much :D
Day 36 of Hero’s Journey was an extremely easy/chill day, plenty of stretches and some meditation too.
So thankful for that because my toothache has flared up with a vengeance since yesterday and it’s super swollen today… no fun.
