Hey all, had a good workout with my trainer yesterday.
Circuit set (each set goes down one number, 10, 9, 8, 7, etc. I got down to 4 in the time we had for my session, which is half an hour, but was actually less)
Chest Presses with bar (i'm not sure how heavy it was)
Rows with 40 lb barbell
Squat Presses (these were killer)
Needless to say I couldn't lift my arms yesterday whatsoever, especially when I was washing my hair in the shower, I had to put my arms down a few times in order to keep going. Today I'm still pretty sore, doesn't hurt, I just don't have very much movement with my arms. I love the feeling though, it feels good to have it back now. I'm definitely continuing on.
Before my session, I ran (most of it, only walked a little bit to catch my breath) 1.75 miles, which is a set up from last Monday when before my trainer and I did 1.5 miles. Whoo! I'm definitely getting into it, I can feel my endurance building and it feels amazing. I actually felt like I could have kept running the mile but I still want to build myself up to it and not push myself too hard cause then I get that inevitable cramp in my side. Totally evil. It always comes, but I just push through it and walk it out till it's gone.
This morning made myself 2 scrambled eggs with asparagus and green peppers. Yummers! Cantaloupe for a mid-day snack, london broil and carrots for lunch. I haven't figured out dinner yet, but we'll get to it. Probably more london broil cause that's what I've got cooked.
I'm easing myself into the Paleo diet because I still have a lot of frozen veggies that are green beans and peas and carrots and I need to eat those and get them out of the way. At least they're vegetables, so I'm slowly phasing things out.
I'm definitely back, ladies and gentlemen.
Happy fall! Let's keep those Labor Day resolutions going (hey, new year's isn't the only time to readjust yourself!)
