Keeping the Momentum

As I keep going with this, I wonder how much good it really does to keep reporting these workouts – hell, it’s already getting hard to come up with a title! – but I’ll keep at it for a little longer, at least.  If I’m boring you or, alternately, you think I should STFU and do it and quit talking about it so much, let me know.

Weight-assisted pull-ups:  1 warm-up, 3 sets x 10 medium weight, 2 x 10 light-medium weight
Bent-over rows:  4 sets medium weight

Preacher curls:  1 warm up, 5 x 10 light weight (alternating inside/outside grip)
Cable opposed curls:  4 x 10 light-medium weight  (Stand in the middle of a cable crossover machine with cables set to shoulder height – arms straight out to your sides, then curl each arm toward your head like you’re doing a double-bicep pose.  I like this exercise because it’s harder to cheat than a lot of other standing curls.)

Straight-leg lifts:  2 x 25

Cardio:  Elliptical, hillclimb, level 3, 30 min

Result:  Not really sore at all.  However, I DID essentially fall asleep about 8:30 last night.  I partially blame Dys for turning on Murphy’s Romance – cheesy 80s flick, true, and even though I like it, it’s hardly keep-you-awake stuff on its best day.  When Boy went to bed at 9, I flopped off the couch and just went on to bed.

    Isn’t this what this site is for? To keep you checking in with yourself? You won’t bore us. Promise!

  2. I agree. I love to hear what everyone else is doing. Just the shear act of sharing is inspirational. Here’s what I’ve been doing since last Monday when I went for my Dr. appt and stepped on the scale. YIKES! I am not anywhere close to where I want to be. I haven’t really made any progress since we started this blog. Ugh! Well, I can’t say I haven’t made any progress, because I did start running, which is something! So, my new strategies include incorporating a food diary, which I have consistently kept all week. Yay! I am drinking my coffee black and have dramatically increased the water intake. It helps that I have to write it down, then I can actually keep track. Also, I have been having the same breakfast (1 small grapefruit and 1 Slim Fast shake) and same lunch (1/2 cup cottage cheese with 1/2 cup salsa plus 8 Triscuits). That way I don’t have to think about it. Dinner is a little more difficult as I am cooking for others. I am starting out by portion control and not having “just a little more” of whatever. After dinner, that’s it. Water is my new snack! I haven’t had any sweet treats since Monday and that has been fine and I feel like I accomplished something. I’ve been doing various workouts depending on the weather including walking, running, step-ups, weights, yoga, and every day doing the 100s (a crunch type ab thing). I’m going to weigh every Monday just to keep track and stop avoiding the issue. I’ll keep you posted.
