Did my workout later in the day (@ 4:00), so that I could go up to the Club with husband. Thankfully, people have spring fever, so there weren't a ton of people up there. The weights went well, and I feel like I just hit my groove with them.
I did the following:
Grapevine Lunge - 3 sets of 12 using 12.5 lb weight
Sumo Squats - 3 sets of 12 using 12.5 lb weight
Bench Rows - 3 sets of 12 using 12.5 lb weight
Triceps Push-Ups - 3 sets of 12
Curl Press - 3 sets of 12 using 8 lb weights
Ball Circles - 3 sets of 12
Ball Sit Ups - 3 sets of 20
Leg Lifts - 3 sets of 20.
I had a breakthrough with my push ups and really felt good about them. I'm still doing them modified, but I felt strong.
This workout only took me 45 minutes today.
I followed it up with 30 minutes on the spin cycle. I went particularly numb after that run, followed by a moment of tingling I'm not sure was appropriate given that I was out in public - needless to say I can't wait to spin again! HAHAHAHA
Of course, my day also included a walk with the pup and what is turning into daily de-dandelioning of the yard.
We went to the fitness fair to pick up our tops and race numbers for the 1/2 marathon this weekend. I have stopped dreading it and have decided that I am looking forward to the almost 1,000 calories I will burn walk, walk, walk, walking for so many hours. The tops this year are red, and quite pretty. I used to shy away from red, because I felt like it made me too noticeable, but I will wear this top proudly!
Of course, the best part of the 1/2 marathon is that we have breakfast reservations at my Club for brunch after the walk. Ya, freakin whooooooo!!
Not much else to report. Have a healthy day!!
PS: I've found my new 4 week workout program to follow after this one. This time I will be doing a routine from Fitness Magazine, which will mostly focus on my stomach, which is where I feel I need to move my focus! I can't wait to start it!
PPS: My belly dance teacher has the name of a gal for me to call so I can get my swimsuit made for me this year. I found the one I would like in fitness magazine... I'm going to be smokin!! ;-) (see, the old me would have added, "well, relatively smokin", but not now! I'm going to be SMOKIN!!!)
