Date: November 18, 2011
Time of exercise: 2:30pm
Qty (each strength is done twice):
pushups: (girl) 18*, 14
squat and press: 14, 5*
dumbbell row: 15 , 15
static lunge 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**: 18*, 14*
* - didn't complete the strength for the whole time allotted
** - due to my bad, crackling knees, I won't do the lunges.
Notes: Maybe you've noticed (but probably not), but I completed a full set of pushups! The first set (I did 18), I didn't realize if I did one more I would have done pushups for the time allotted. But the second set I did pushups the whole time! I'm pretty proud of myself. Even just after 5 days, they feel easier.
One thing I forgot to note yesterday, was that the presses (squat and press, minus the squat) without the weights were hard. I thought that was weird. I wonder if I'll ever be able to both sets if it's hard without weights?
I enjoy working out earlier in the day, because my evenings can now be filled with wine and good company (hi mom and Rachelle!). I may be on my 3rd....or 4th glass, so I better cut this short now!
One last thing. I am leaving for Chicago for all day tomorrow. I won't be back until after 11pm, so I know I'm not going to get a workout in (Meredith, please don't cry!). I don't plan on having day 6 without exercise, so my day 6 will be on Sunday. Stay tuned until then (and thanks for reading :)
