OUCH!! It's been a long time since I've been sore.
Weights: 4 lbs
Date: November 16, 2011 (Happy Birthday Eli!)
Time of exercise: 7:50pm
Qty (each strength is done twice):
pushups: (girl) 10*, 9*
squat and press: 8*, 5*
dumbbell row: 15 , 15
static lung w/
bicep curl**: 26 , 25
chest Y's: completed all (didn't count these because I knew I could finish them)
anterior raises w/
static lunge**: 15*, 5*
* - didn't complete the strength for the whole time allotted
** - due to my bad, crackling knees, I won't be doing the lunges
Notes: First of all, working out last night at 9:30 was not a good idea. I looked at the clock the last time at 12:19am. So, of course, 6:20 came too early this morning. I could also feel my chest being sore while lying in bed. There will definitely be an early bed time tonight!
Picture a tube top with cap sleeves on it. That is where I'm sore. I barely made it past the warm up today! Jillian says "If you feel like you are doing to die, follow Anita." I followed Anita the whole session. I think tomorrow I may do it without any weights to give my muscles a little rest. I love feeling my abs sore though! I'm kind of considering taking a before and after picture of my mid section to see if I can tell a difference. I'm scared I'll be disappointed if I don't see any results though.
Unfortunately, I could feel more pain in my knees, so I took out all the lunges. I need to find a way to work my butt now. Any suggestions?
Before shredding today, I had to get in a weekly run (I usually try for 3 times a week to run). I ran 4 miles in 36:34, ate dinner, helped put the kids to bed, and then started the shred.
Thank you all for following me! I wouldn't have done this workout today if it wasn't for you! So THANK YOU!
