The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Riding instructor/ horse trainerís journal

    So here is my 3rd attempt at a journal and fitness, but here is a recap of what I want to achieve and where I stand at the moment:
    As of last 11/1 I weight 120lbs my goal is 110. Iím 5í3 so my goal weight is not so far off.
    I do tae kwon do 2 times a week, ride 2-3 horses about 3-4 days a week, and my trips to the gym are rare. But that is what I have to work with, any comments are welcome.

    Tuesday: it was my last session with the trainer, now I have to make myself go
    Gym:
    1 elbow push up 12x2
    ball hip extension 12x2
    push up 12x2
    4 way lunges with shoulder press (8lbs) 12x2
    ball bench press (12.5) 12x2
    ball rows (12.5) 12x2
    ball flys (3) 12x2
    squats 12x2

    Bellydance at night

    Wed:
    rode 2 horses

    Thursday:
    rode 1 horse

    Friday:
    rode 2 horses
    Sparing in TKD-started out with 5min of jump rope, then lot of kicking of rthe rest of the hour. There were only 3 people in class so I was paired up with my master, and he kicked hard. Great fun

    Maybe I'll make it to the gym this weekend

    12x2 pushups is actually pretty decent. Well done.

    Well I didn't do anything this weekend, instead I had a nice romantic weekend with my man. oh and how can I forget about all the kids I had to teach

    Tuesday:
    Bellydance 1.5hrs -it was a great class because no one else came, so I had a 1on 1 with my teacher, and we worked on all my problems.

    Tomorrow:
    Horses and TKD

    Diet = bad gotta start keeping a journal again

    Yesterday:
    Rode 2 horses, one was just walk for 30mins. and another full on training for over an hour. Also went to TKD at night and it was a nice stress relief session.
    Some of the stuff we did:
    10x3 squat/kick combo
    10x3 dip pushup
    10x5 crunches
    half hour of wrestling, I had no idea how tiring that is

    Ahh, soreness

    That's awesome about getting one-on-one training in the bellydancing class.
    And yeah, wrestling is awesome for tiring you out. It's enough to give you that feeling you used to get (or at least, I did) as a kid, where you just feel like you're so worn out that you can't do a single thing more. I haven't had that for a long time...

    Do you ever ride without your stirrups to strengthen your legs?

    everyonce in a while. I actually haven't done it in years, and then a few weeks ago I rode for an hour without stirups and my calfs hurt so bad, I couldn't walk up the stairs for afew days. So now I ride without stirups once a week.

    Last 2 weeks have been very lazy due to the holidays and swamped with work. Last week I only rode maybe 3 horses total. This week was just as bad. I rode 1 horse on wed. and 2 horses on friday. Also did TKD sparing on friday. I have bruises on my arms and shins because I didn't wear protection, except for around the body, and I was sparing with my master. I love sparing! If I was any good at it, I would consider competition.

    I have hopes for next week, but there won't be any trips to the gym for a few months because my membership expired and there are no good deals right now.
