This morning I weighed myself at 145.8! Helloooo 145. Well, basically 146. But it has been a while since I even last saw that number. Doesn’t seem like much but a few changes have made a difference. Eating better and being more active. And so far so good.
Today’s workout was lower body. As mentioned in Workout Log (10), I followed the same routine but for Tuesday. First I warmed up for 5 minutes on the recumbent bike at resistance 8.
Barbell Squat: (45#x 8 warm-up) 65#x8, 8, 8
Stiff-Legged Dead Lift: 65#x8, 8, 8
Leg Extensions: 50#x8, 8, 8 [This piece of equipment had a sticker that said “Start 4 lbs”… not sure if that means I add 4# to my weight for the total or not. If anyone knows, please leave a comment so I know for future reference. The seated calf raise was the same but with 60# start.]
Lying Leg Curls: 30#x8, 9, 9
Standing Calf Raises (did seated today): 20#x12, 12, 12 [+60#??]
Lying Leg Raises: 12, 12, 12
Exercise Ball Crunches: 15, 15, 15
I finished with 10 minutes on the recumbent bike alternating between resistance 8 and 3 with a 5 minute cool-down at resistance 1.
We took longer on our walk because I ran into one of my friends walking her baby and dog. It was nice catching up. The weather was nice for the walk. Sunny, slight wind but warm.
