The One Where I’m Back on Track


I am having a bit of writer’s block today. Normally, when I prepare a post, I scroll through the photos on my phone to remember what the heck I did yesterday and build the text around the pictures. Since I’ve stopped photographing every meal (I don’t think I talked about that; more on my eats later. If you care.) I’m finding that my camera roll is quite sparse. I mean, here’s what I have from yesterday,



And they’re just funny pins from Pinterest I grabbed to store for a more appropriate time later.

So I guess I’m just stuck with talking about the gym. After work yesterday I had another Ruby coding class to get to, so I did a flurry of an arm session before I had to grab my sad little PC netbook and head out:

  • W/U 5 min on the treadmill, combo of run/walk << this is about as long as I can handle being on the “dreadmill”
  • Bench Press 3×10 @ 30 lb dumbbells
  • Bent Over Rows 3×10 @ 20 lb
  • Shoulder Press 3×10 @ 15 lb
  • Bicep Curl 3×10 @ 15 lb
  • Lat Pulls 3×10 @ 35 kg (I’m pretty sure the lat machine measures in kg’s right now. The “35” plate about lifts me off the seat, and I KNOW I’m not that little)

And as I looked at my calendar from the past week I realized that I’m on a workout streak. I’ve done something every day the past 7 days in a row. Woo-hoo! Last Wednesday I had to drag my butt out of bed and bargain myself to get back in the program, and I have successfuly maintained my track all week. I rock.

Since I don’t think I really talked about it, here’s what the past week has been, work-wise:

Wednesday – Cardio & Legs
Thursday – Run 3.5 mi on the dreadmill
Friday – Lifting – Arms
Saturday – Run 8 mi
Sunday – Recovery, spin 30 min
Monday – Lifting – Legs
Tuesday – Lifting – Arms

You know, it is TOTALLY easier to list what I have done than listing a plan of stuff that I intend to do and will probably fail at. I feel much more accomplished this way.

Anyway, we’re doing the happy dance over here. And stealing Mommy’s phone because it’s great fun to take selfies.
