Week 4 Workout #11

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday I did my last workout of Week Four for the current 5 week plan I am doing, and it was a hard one. At work we had some ice cream to celebrate the fourth and I probably had a little more than I should have. I have a feeling that caused me to not have the same energy for my workout. Also, I have been tired the last couple of days and it is starting to catch up with me. I seem to be sleeping alright during the week, but there will be one night on the weekends where I don’t sleep all that well. I will wake-up around 2:30-3 and for some reason I cannot fall back to sleep. It is odd because it isn’t like my mind id wondering or that I am stressing out. It is frustrating because I know sleep is important in the weight loss/building muscle process. I seem to be getting enough sleep to function, but I know I’m not getting the amount I truly need. I guess I am going to have to focus on sleeping like I have my workouts. At least with the 3 day weekend I should be able to get a little more sleep. I know I cannot get it all back in one day.

Moving on, my workout last night was a tough one. I redid the workouts from Week 1 of the program but I don’t remember the order. I did each routine one time. I always listen to a song and start moving around a little bit to warm up the body before I work out. However, yesterday I think I got a little into it, and I could feel it during my workout. However, I feel fine this morning. Below is the workout in what I believe was the order I did them in.
