out of the saddle

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Got my walk in just in the nick of time this morning, because by the time I drove home, it was sprinkling the rain. The day turned dark and drizzly. Had to go do some grocery shopping and really messed up by not stopping for fresh produce, I did however get some grapes.
I have bananas, and apples, but not much else, so another trip to the local market is in order in the next few days.
So, now I am so so tired, dont know if it has just been the cooler rainy weather or what.
Going to do some major cleaning tomorrow night.
Time to really start purging the closets and spare rooms of unneeded junk.
I have sold my recumbant bike, which hadnt been getting too much use, and am hoping to instead find a good used weight bench with arm and chest press.
Or, a total gym, lol, which maybe or maybe not would be used much.
I do think the chest press would be used alot, I really want to start working harder on muscle toning.
I am going to set up a streak to work on my abdominals for 30 days and see if I see any changes.
This is my next focus, to begin to see not only pounds falling off again, but inches.
Its beyond time.
It was an overall pretty decent day.

    Strength training is so important at our age as we lose muscle mass. You should be able to get in a few reps on a consistent basis. Maybe consult a trainer for getting you started on a program you can do at home. Your body will love you for it!

    I love walking in the morning too. A personal trainer once told me that spot exercise don't work (which i really don't believe) but she said diet, cardio and weight training is the way to reduce.

    Squats, even if body weight squats, do more good than Abs exercises. emoticon
