    Strange day, but good w.r.t. this challenge: decided to take the 🚴‍♀️ instead of the 🚘 and needed only 5 min more 😃. Was left with about 500 cals, too.

    Wait, that was on Sunday 😃.

    Yesterday I only 🚴‍♀️ for about 45 min, but still had calories left 😃.

    Exercised: Yes 100 mins treadmill ( burned 553 calories )
    Tracked: Yes
    Calories: Yes
    Pass Days: 3 left

    Found out today I am loosing my job in 3 weeks. I do remote learning with a family and the mom is loosing her job now. I really had to force myself to eat today. I can't eat when upset, but I needed the exercise to de-stress and relax. I just want to sleep and not think anymore today.

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? No, because this weekend was our Thanksgiving here is Canada. Could not keep track. I ate wisely but did nit bother to track.

    Kitchen Closed? No

    Pass day 1/3 (this is for accountability to myself and my records)

    @MaltedTea - your workout sounds interesting. I know you’ve been posting it, but I can’t remember. What were your starting numbers? What does it entail? Is it helping your upper body strength?

    It's fun, gets results fast (as long as your form's decent) and the original version is here...

    https://www.t-nation.com/workouts/10000-swing-kettlebell-workout

    Since it's my first time (umm, and I did not want to buy a new KB), I'm using 25 lb to swing.

    My strength movement is one arm DB press ups. I'm currently on 12 lb and hope to get to 20 lb for the last 3-5 sessions. My upper body needs more strength 🤷🏿‍♀️

    If you try it at some point, then tag my username to let me know!

    I'll likely do it with you at that time, but with a heavier KB.

    @maltedtea - my upper body strength is horrendous. Hmmm. I’m thinking 25 pounds is scary! Although with 15 pound dumbbells I’m pretty much there for deadlifts etc. I’ll start looking for a kettlebell. It’s hard to find weights right now at reasonable prices. I am checking out the t-nation site once I post this. Thank you.
