February Exercise Challege

Okay...I don't know what is freaking UP with my GOOGLE, but I have updated that dang spreadsheet three times in the last week, and it just refuses to publish! When I look at it, all the info is there. But when I go out and come back in to view as a guest, it's not updated. ARGH! I sent a message to GOOGLE to see if they can figure out what I'm doing wrong.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now on to the good stuff! LOL

Two full hours at the gym today, on chest. Ooo-Ooo-Ooo! It feels so good to be back in there!

My gym traded in our old faithful chest press for a new, different model. I DON'T LIKE IT! The old one was an incline bench with adustable seat...the arms were adjustable for height (I loved making it so you had to pick up the weight all the way from bottom...good stretch!) which made it harder (good thing). The new one is a flat bench that I feel too tall for (I'm almost 5'11") and when I used it today, I felt it in my biceps and shoulders...not my chest at all. GRRR! I hope I get used to it...well, I have no choice, I suppose. I wish they would have ADDED instead of REPLACED though. Okay, "whine" over...I hate whiners! LOL

So my workout today: six sets of 12 on the new bench press, six sets of 12 dumbbell chest presses with 35 pounders (hoo-aw!), six sets of 12 chest flyes, six sets of 12 cable chest flyes and then topped all that off with four sets of 60 crunches on the roman chair holding 30 pounds of weight against my chest! I'm still babying myself on some exercises, like the chest flyes, since my shoulder/tricep comes more into play and I DO NOT WANT TO BE OUT OF THE GAME AGAIN! LOL So I'll take those parts slow to make sure I don't injure it again. I learned my lesson!

If I can get myself in the shape I want to be in, I think I want to get certified to be a trainer so I can have an excuse to be in the gym all day, every day!

JM - I miss you! Poke your pretty little head in here once in a while between dress fittings, would you? Hope all is going well for you!

DADDY - Okay...what's YOUR excuse? You don't have oodles of wedding dress fittings to see to! LOL

P.S. Yes, insomnia strikes yet again.

Karey, great news on the verdict! Surprised nothing about the shot taken at your son though.:)

Stef, great workout. I think after seeing that, you put me to shame. Good idea about taking a little slow getting back to the workouts for your tricep. You don't want to reinjure it and make it worse than originally.

Btw, I asked this in a PM, but are you a Cowboys fan? Just wondering. I'm a HUGE (literally and figuratively:lol:) Cowboys fan and hate living up here in Norseland. I went down this past October for my first game in TX Stadium. LOVED IT!!!!! Going back for 2008 season or maybe to Green Bay when the 'Boys play over there. Haven't decided yet.

Anyway, today was a "non lifting" day. Did 65 minutes on the treadmill. Running 2.25 miles in a little under 25 minutes @ 5.5 mph. The rest was done @ 4 mph and inclines of 2 and 3%. Burned 1000 calories.

Last night did my first lower body of this cycle so 6 exercises, 7 reps each and 3 circuits. Switched up the exercises and felt good getting through it. Just amusing that the beginning of the cycle goes sooooo much quicker than the workouts at the end. I know, less total reps, just feels like I spend no time in there at the beginning of the cycle. But, I make up for it at the end.

Thanx on the workout, but ALL of us here rock the gyms! :)

No, not a football nut, but hubby is a MAJOR Cowboys fan! I'm glad you got to that game last year, because unless you already have tickets, you won't go to another one for a couple years. Jerry Jones pre-sold every stinkin' seat to every game through 2010, I think it is. All for the new stadium...which is GORGEOUS, by the way! Of course, you know there ARE ways to get tickets, but you might have to arrest yourself afterwards! :biggrin: LOL

No problems with ticks Stef. Buddy I went down there with was on the Cowboys practice squad in '92 and '93. If he can't get them through the team, he knows alot of people to get them from for really good prices. Really good seats.

And, I thought everyone in Texas was a football nut. Isn't it a law or something? :)

Ceradad: The aggravated burglary was because they shot at my son. The will get an automatic 5-30 years. So sad. Such a waste for those stupid young men. I guess they were heroine addicts. I guess they'll be clean by the time they get out!

Guess I missed that part.

The important is that your son and your family are safe. I agree that it is a waste of youth, but remember: "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time". One of my favorite sayings.

Hopefully, your family and you can get past this w/o too much turmoil in your lives from here on out. Good luck.

Whose: Don't you love those hotel exercise rooms?! You're doing great! Way to stick with under rather difficult circumstances. It's paying off and it does create those life time habits everyone says you need to be successful!

Had a good work out today. I'm down another pound! YEAH! I've got a head cold and am a little worried, because I can't have surgery if I'm sick! Anyone have any good suggestions for speeding this cold along? I'm taking Cold MD and EmergenC.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
