Joe Abs BeachBody Workout January 4 2019

This is the 4th Joe Abs BeachBody workout of 2019 – Shift Shop Strength :25 . It’s a short workout and I did it with light weights and modifications because of the injuries to my big toes. I apologize for the messed up audio – did not have the time to figure out what went wrong.

Daily Workout: Friday December 14, 2018

Yesterday’s workout activity was decent, although not great.  The highlight was probably finishing the 3rd day in a row of the 3 Week Yoga Retreat from BeachBody on Demand.

I only did 35 minutes of cardio and logged in 17,987 steps in on my fitness tracker and the VeryFitPro app.  Didn’t really do a lot of other exercise.

Getting excited about going to Mammoth Mountain tomorrow.  Looks like it is going to be really nice skiing and riding.

Still the same, want to get in some good exercise today – probably won’t be on a cardio machine or lifting weights for the next 4 days or so (but I am sure my legs will be feeling it each and every day).

Daily Workout: Thursday December 13, 2018

Yesterday was a good get back on track day – with both my workouts (activity) and nutrition.  I set a personal recent record for steps with 26,699 steps – although I only spent 33 minutes 33 seconds on the cardio machine.

Perhaps the highlight was doing Day 2 of the 3 Week Yoga Retreat on BeachBody on Demand:  Stretch.  Each day I do yoga, I realize that I’m not nearly as limber nor in as good condition as I thought.  Yoga is really a good practice and I’m really enjoying it – although I do have to admit it is difficult to stay focused on it (or anything else) if the 2 year old Ava Kalea is “up and at em”.  She usually demands (and deserves) my attention.

Here’s my stats for the day:

Daily Workout: Wednesday December 12, 2018

Some days I tank so bad, I just don’t want to document my workouts.  Wednesday was one of them.  I didn’t do a lot.  

3 Week Yoga Retreat BeachBody on Demand

I had a couple of good excuses.  1) It was my mom’s birthday.  Ok – she lives in Scottsdale and didn’t even answer her phone when I called – so it wasn’t a good excuse at all.  2) My friend from way back (Enatai elementary in Bellevue, Washington) Brook Lamkin and his wife Sharon drove down from their beach house in San Clemente.  That was a better excuse and it was great to get to spend time with them, but I wish I had been stronger and set a better example.

The best thing about my activity is that I started a “3 Week Yoga Retreat” on BeachBody on Demand.  The first session that I did was core and I felt it.  I haven’t done a lot of yoga in the past, but do want to do more and get better at it.  This was a decent start.

Daily Workout: Monday December 10, 2018

Yesterday did not turn out to be much of a workout day for me.  It’s easy to make excuses, but it was just one of those days.  Got busy with Ava Kalea during the day and since the Seahawks were on Monday Night Football, I kind of let the day get away from me.

The lone bright spot was that I did 66 minutes of cardio – but I still fell short of my 20k steps goal.  I got in 17,918 steps …

The worst part about the day besides not working out, was that I broke down and ate a bunch of cookies.  What was even worse was that I was the one who bought and baked the premade cookie dough …

I’ll just chalk that up as this week’s cheat day – and work a lot harder today.

Daily Workout: Sunday December 9, 2018

Yesterday was Day 2 in my quest to document my workouts and progress toward better fitness and health.  Simply writing things down helped allow me to beat the previous day’s numbers – substantially in many categories (although my fitness tracker had a different opinion and I didn’t reach my goal numbers of 20k steps a day).

Joe Abs Kennedy Very Fit Pro Activity December 9, 2018

Regardless of the fitness tracker numbers from the Very Fit Pro app, I felt much better about my workout – and my Live-It was better too.  After I got back from work in the morning, I cooked up a slow cooker with a variety of beans and black rice – and ate it several times during the day.  Once with chicken and a couple of times without.  I’m happy with that, as I work towards living on a more plant-based diet.

Here are the workout numbers for the day:
