Progress because of the gym
Monday, March 10, 2014
So we finally joined a gym a couple of weeks ago. Why? Many reasons really, but mostly because my husband is now a full fledged have to meet his own weight loss goals before his physical in May. So now that he has been forced to walk down my path he is more motivated to help me, so I am helping both of us by making us join a gym, getting a workout planned for us and we both weigh and measure in every 5-6 weeks. We are now accountable to someone else besides ourselves. And we were not good at being accountable to each other. I could talk him out of a workout pretty easy and he was (still is) one hell of a procrastinator. Wouldn't do anything unless I basically stood on his neck and I was so done doing that, so this also takes the responsibility off of me.
I am going to try not to be one of "those people" but I did want to share my workout because I am seeing results aready and I finally got what is going to work for me.
I start with battle ropes for 30 seconds. First 20 seconds ok, next 5 getting tough, last 5, OMG is it over yet?!
Next up, TRX straps. 12 squats then 15 rows
Then its on to step ups (one foot step cause my knees said Absolutely NOT to the 2 foot) with a 10 pound kettle bell, 10x each foot individually.
Arms jelly yet? No? Good, 12 of these with 8 pound dumbbells.
And we end with these using a 10 pound ball.
Can you still breathe and talk? You can? Ok, do it all again! I am up to 3 circuits, hoping to hit 5 by the end of my 6 weeks, when I get something new to do.
It has taken me almost 18 years to get to this point of making it stick and keep going. The mid 40s are going to be my best ones yet, and man am I going to take a ton of healthy me pics when I get to my 1st goal weight!
