Just got back from the gym. It really took all of my 'tricks' to get myself down there. The first plan (and best) had been to hit the gym this morning at the 'usual' time. But then the electricity went out yesterday and when I reset the clock I got the am/pm wrong so the alarm didn't go off this morning. So I brought my bag with me thinking I would go after work. BUT my friend and co-worker reminded me that we have yoga tonight. Considering the amount of money I spent on classes I figured I better go. Of course then little lazy voice in my head started to say... you've been working hard, why not skip today? BUT you see, at the first of the week I made a promise to myself. I said that if I didn't make it to the gym every day this week (that's the gym, yoga doesn't count) that I would not let myself go to our afterwork Cinco De Mayo party on Friday. That meant I HAD to go to the gym today. In my mind I kept flipping back and forth between options. Go after work and skip yoga or drag my butt to the gym at lunch. Excuse after excuse flitted through my mind but I disregared them all, and as you probably already guessed I made it to the gym at lunch!
And - my arms no longer belong to my body... heh. Between the back workout yesterday, then swimming... gah! Then I Fried myself with my chest workout today... the only reason I can type this is because I can rest my arms while I do so.
I hope my nose doesn't itch anytime soon...
so - the chest workout:
45 x 6
50 x 10
50 x 5
I did 50 lbs for 10 reps because I wanted to prove to myself that I still could. I would do a happy dance but that would involve waving my arms so you all will have to do it for me. ;)
Barbell Press (plus bar)
80 x 6
70 x 6
After frying myself on the dumbbells I was having a little trouble with the barbell - PLUS I didn't have a spotter which always makes me nervous and makes me pick lighter weights.
20 x 6
20 x 6
And that was it - I went back to work.
I've got 75 minutes of yoga still to get through today... yipes!
Food has been perfect. I had a moment of cravings today but not for sweets... for pepsi. I had just finished my turkey sandwich on whole wheat when suddenly this overwhelming urge for the taiste of diet pepsi came over me. BUT I've promised myself no drinks until I'm under 200. Man I better see some fat dropping but soon! lol
Have a great day everyone!
