Happy Saturday Everyone!
I gotta say, I have really had such a great week, all around.
Back in the gym 3 nights this week. Sore today from it , but its the good sore 🙂 Not the bad sore I have been experiencing the last year or so .
Wednesday was Lift Day, as you know – MY FAVORITE! And it was dead lifts!!! I was very happy with how I did , but it just drove home that I am starting over and I have to let the numbers and how I used to be able to do things, go. And I used to get really frustrated with that, but now, I am in a much better place with it. Would I have loved to go in and rock a 220 lb Deadlift smashing my goal? Of course, but I was very happy I made it up to 95 lbs.
Starting over and that’s okay.
Here is how I did Wednesday :
5 sets 10 reps sit to stand squats on low box – yes, folks – we are reduced to squatting on a box. But it is totally okay, cause honestly the struggle with it was REAL. I was dying. So, it is most definitely a good place to start.
Onto dead lifts :
8 @65 lbs
Then there was 3 rounds of accessory work :
10 trx rows
10 resistance band pulls – supposed to be bench dips but i had a hard time with that
Planks! i did about 20 seconds on each one
Here is how I did Thursday :
I got some new sneakers for the gym, that did not work out so well. They were too big and my feet were literally coming out of them while rowing. So the rest of the workout was barefoot. Never stop Swimming!
500 m row
17 TRX lunges
17 push ups
17 v ups ( or what ever you call my version, lol, to the knee)
I finished in 30:54 , cap was 35:00 so I was really happy that I got it done in time, even modified.
Excited to go back next week. This is what I need, I just need to do my part and actually go.
This week – I am happy to report that I have done awesome with my no soda, no bread , no pasta changes. It may not seem big to some people, but believe me, It is HUGE for me.
Overall, things are pretty great at the moment. I kept on swimming, and I will continue to swim. Hope you do too, no matter what the situation.
Have a great weekend everyone!
