Push ups not easier....Yet.
Tuesday, June 11, 2013
I wish I could, but I really can't yet, I'll get there. I'm a little behind because of all the broken bones I had in my right arm growing up. Collar bone, elbow, and all the bones in my ring and pinky finger. How did I do all of that? Well the collar bone was skiing in my 20's, my elbow was in gymnastics when I was 9, and the hand was in college. I punched a door when I was really mad, why I was mad is a story for another blog. I know I've had plenty of time to rehab and be able to do push ups but it never really happened. This time I'd like to get there. I want to stick with the weight training long enough to really finally reach my goals for once.
Hard work out tonight. Back to back classes with Gathan, abs and then body conditioning. We got through 3 whole circuits of his exercises and wow he does not let up. Your rest time is the time it takes to grab your weights or whatever for the next exercise. I was a bit tired today for the workout but I got into a mental zone and I pushed myself through every single rep. This workout targeted a lot of my weak spots and I love that. I'm sore in all the right places so I must be doing something right.
I don't have to get to work until 9:25am tomorrow but I'm too tired to stay up late tonight. It's 10:30 now and I think I might just head to bed. My muscles need some serious rest before Thursday's workout. I want to try to get to Yoga tomorrow to stretch everything out and keep everything lean and warm between workouts. A few people have complimented me on my flexibility and I want to maintain and improve that. I'm going to be 40 in 2 years and I want this body in top shape for that and every decade beyond that. I want strong bones and muscles. I sleep better, I feel better and I'm seeing a difference in the past 3 weeks almost 4 since I started back at the gym again. I want a long time to pass before I have to say 'start back'. There should never have to be a starting back when it comes to fitness. Make it stick this time. Lose weight for Sedona and keep going for Mexico and knock those pictures out of the park this Summer. I will get my hot abs and lose these last 20 pounds, just you all watch me!
