Just some updating
Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Saturday night I went to the gym and worked on my arms, shoulders, back, thighs and did some cardio. I tried 3 new machines for my upper body and I loved them. I felt great afterwards. Woke up the next day fine until around 3 or 4 pm when I slightly bent over to move a TV tray. Felt a tightness in my lower back and its still sore. I dont know if I did something at the gym or if my back just hates me.
Yesterday I wrote up a plan for the gym. No Im not going to start it word for word but I plan to work my way up.
Example: Cardio and Legs (Saturdays)
Bike - 10 mins
seated leg curls
seated leg extension
hamstring curl ( if they have one)
treadmill - 10 mins
~repeat legs ~
bike - 10 mins
stretch at home (yoga)
My first month of this will be Bike // leg exercises // bike and then it will double. My other days are cardio+upper+core, cardio+full body, 2 rest days, and 2 cardio days. My cardio days will be 15 bike, 20 treadmill, 20 bike, 20 treadmill, 15 bike, and then yoga at home. It might change if I dont get a strange reaction to the elliptical. Ive been on them before but last year I got on one and after 2 rotations my right thigh just above the knee got super tight. Almost felt like a charlie horse. Kinda nervous about getting on it again.
Im still working on eating better. ITS SO FREAKIN HARD. I have cut back on pop and increased my water. Portion control is very hard. But I haven't given up so thats a big plus.
