I just got a new kind of protein powder and I'm insanely excited to try it! It's cookies and cream flavour!

Things you forget about when you're sitting down: squats.
Things you immediately remember when you (try to) stand up: squats.

Ohhhhh squats.
Best and worst part of my workout.

UGH totally. That's exactly how I feel today too lol. We had lower focus yesterday and it was 25 minutes of non stop lunging and squatting and combos of the two lol.

I wasn't bad when I woke up this morning and thought HUH well that's a nice surprise. a little sore in the butt and groin but really not bad. Yeah, that was just a teaser. By this afternoon Hannah asked me to play a game with her on the floor and OMGosh the pain lol and then sitting on that hard floor... NOPE lol

Question for those of you who know things about working out

So, one of my biggest issues right now is that I work some LOOOONG days (7am-8pm) and sometimes I am just too darn tired to work out afterward, and there is no way I'm getting up at 4:30am to work out. Just not gonna happen

Anyway, would there be any negative effects of working out twice on the days that I have shorter work and more time? Like if I did yoga/weightlifting in the morning and then ran at night? I would be able to do this probably 4 days a week?

I feel bad on the days that I don't work out, and I am also less likely to eat better if I don't work out. Thanks in advance!

You make the time when you can and make sure you stick to it. Any working out you do is going to be more than not doing it.

Eat right, get more active. Nothing wrong with "two a days". Pro athletes do it all the time. Just make sure you properly warm up, work out, cool down/stretch at the end.

Has anyone had success with C25K? I'm thinking of trying it out, maybe a yoga class on one of the off days.

Thanks Eddie! I will start doing it then

And I adore C25K! Totally works if you stick to it!

Yes...!if you stick with it. A friend of mine used hers to run our last 5k. We didn't win any awards but it kept us paced and kept us going

Definitely not a bad thing, especially since you're looking at two different things. I know people who run twice a day too. I've never done it (I'd rather knock all my mileage out at once please) but it's not a bad thing.
I say do it and just be mindful of how you are feeling, but IMO you're unlikely to suffer anything bad from it.

Yep. It's how I started running. I started at week 3 because I was already a work-out-er and completed the program, ran my very first 5K race on the last day of the program. I'm a fan.

That's what I figured, especially since it's not like I am doing major MAJOR working out. I'm doing like 3 miles and an hour of power yoga/weights. Which really isn't super strenuous even though I'm overweight and only sort of in shape
