New Rules of Lifting for Women

Friday, September 07, 2012

I started my day by walking 4 miles at 6 am, I had steel cut oats with strawberries, blueberries, apricots and apples along with coffee. I then started this exercise - this is my 2nd day of it (I started on Wed) and Wow! My quads were so sore! I did notice once I got about half way through then my legs started feeling a lot better but I was sweating and invigorated by the end of this - I don't know if it took me 45 or 55 minutes as I walked out of room a couple of times to check on something in the oven. I'm loving this workout - the pushups are hard for me - which surprises me because I've always done them but my fiancé' warned me that with all the extra work out routines I'm doing now and walking then something was going to end up being harder than usual.
BTW, I'm 48 and feeling great!

This is what is growing in my garden right now:

    Very inspiring! And a great breakfast by the way...!!!

    I have lifted in the past but haven't started back up yet. I'm looking into doing strength training with only by body weight, even though I really love dumbell and weight-machine workouts. I joined the TRX team hoping to learn more about it due to our local YMCA having classes for it now. I'm not yet ready for it, but am looking forward to the day when I'm ready to get back into it.

    I took my 4-mile walk today at 6:30 - I love the early morning walks. Feels so good to get the day started that way!!!

    Great job on the working out and eating right. I look forward to hearing about your progress!
