The 512 Streaker

A Streak - A commitment made to do something for 365 days straight. This blog is dedicated to documenting my experience of learning something by completing a streak.

Weighing at 203 pounds today! A bigger drop from the last time I marked my monthly progress! With only 3 months under my belt and about 7 pounds down since I started, I think I can easily hit 189 in the next 9 months!!! With so much to be happy about with this new weight, this month did not all go according to plan and might end up being a fluke month. I was seriously sick last week with a stomach bug and have since been eating pretty lean in order to recover.

My workout cadence was effected by being sick. There were almost three days where I had to stretch during harder exercise segment. I was so weak when I was sick that I felt faint when I got out of bed. Of course, I did not intend on skipping a day, I just swapped out harder, or more intense exercises, with stretching.

I also forgot to mention that the app grants the user a new workout for every 60 days that the user continues their streak. So instead of having access to only one workout, I have two. The second one is called "Upper Body" and is comprised of these 12 workouts -

  1. Chest Expanders - stretch
  2. Overhead Presses - no weights, stretch
  3. Tricep Dips
  4. Windmills - stretch
  5. Side push ups - abs
  6. Shoulder taps - plank/shoulder
  7. push ups
  8. diamond push ups
  9. tricep lifts
  10. push ups with rotations
  11. t-raises
  12. arm circles

As you can see from this new workout, it is pretty intense and heavy on the arms/shoulders. I remember that I was super pumped when the workout was unlocked and I did it that same day... It was SOOOO hard to complete this workout since it was a total course-correction from the normal workout that I had been doing. I am excited to do more of it.

Visible changes in my body since day 1!!! -

My goal by our next check in will be sub-200. That would be such a huge accomplishment for me if I do it! It will have been almost 3 years that I have been over 200 lbs, so ... fingers crossed and stay tuned!
