TAKE 2: DAY 66, DAY 67, DAY 68, DAy 69, & DAY 70*

DAYS 66, 67, & 68:* Yoga, Legs & Back, Kenpo

I was a big fat quitter.  I've been fighting this chest/coughing thing for close to 3 weeks on top of feeling fat and gross and like this wasn't working (and on top of being on vacation staying w/cousins in a small apartment and not feeling like doing 90 min of Yoga there).  So, I quit.  However, a quitter I am not and I'm back on the horse.  I've decided to mark this attempt w/an "*" and pick up as if I've never those 3 days and I'll tack those 3 on to the end of the 90 days.

DAY 69:  Rest
This is where I picked back up :)

DAY 70:  Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X

I felt a little better about being a big fat slacker after I threw up, again, mid workout.  I managed to finish, but it let me know my body needed (and probably still needs) a break.  I'm on all kinds of meds (steroids, antibiotics, nasal aspirator, hydrocodone cough syrup) and I still can't kick this!  BUT, I DID IT!  I also already did Ab Ripper, so I'm done for the day and happy to be back on the wagon (yet not looking forward to Plyo....).

TAKE 2: DAY 64 & DAY 65

DAY 64:  Plyo

I knew this was going to be hellish.  It's been close to 2 weeks since I've experienced any sort of restful sleep & I was going to be doing this at 5 in the morning, after the 9th night of mere minutes of sleep.  However, we were headed on a road trip directly from work, so it was neither now or never.  And never wasn't an option!

So, I did it!  It was not pretty and I felt as though I'd practically coughed up a lung (why why why would anyone smoke?!), but I did it.

DAY 65:  Back & Biceps, Ab Ripper X

We're on vacation and I still did this!  Also, for the first time in close to 2 weeks, I slept for SEVEN hours w/out coughing!  YES!  I'm super excited cause this should mean my workouts will start to feel normal!   I coughed much less today during this workout and felt pretty good.  Sadly, there's no pull up bar where I am, so I did have to skip those exercises :(.  I'm getting ready to do Ab Ripper as I type...

TAKE 2: DAY 62 & DAY 63

DAY 62:  Rest, glorious rest

DAY 63:  Chest, Shoulders, & Triceps, Ab Ripper X

I don't even know how to comment on today's workout.  I'm not sure if I got more of an ab workout from coughing a lung up during the main workout or during Ab Ripper.  This cough is killing me.  The worst part is I don't FEEL badly, I just can't stop coughing.  So, I feel like I should be able to get a good workout in, but as soon as I get my heart rate up, I erupt into coughing fits.  It sucks.  I think I had an ok shoulder & tri workout, but the push ups weren't up to par.  I tried to just focus on quality over quantity.

TAKE 2: DAY 61

DAY 61:  Kenpo X

So, I made it about 27 minutes in before puking.   Lovely.  I really wanted to finish and was debating whether or not I'd spew again if I did...I decided to take a chance and keep going.  I got to minute 33 before I could feel the bile rising and called it quits.  I'm not a pretty puker-it comes out mouth and nose and I really didn't want to taste burgers and zucchini chips for the third time today, so I called it quits.  I hate that I didn't finish it, but I'm hoping with the rest day tomorrow maybe my body will finally kick this coughing thing and I'll be back on track.  (Sorry for the gross details)

TAKE 2: DAY 60

DAY 60:  Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X

2/3's of the way done!  Woot woot!  I'm still feeling under the weather, but pushed play anyway.  I think I actually did a pretty nice job on the pull ups tonight and did ok on the legs, too.  I didn't do Ab Ripper yet; I'll either do it as I watch The Bachelor finale or maybe first thing in the am (my night time cold/cough meds are starting to kick in...).  I used to HATE this workout, but now I don't dread it (well, any more than I dread any work out...).
