Wednesday Weigh In
Before the holidays I was doing really good hitting the gym 4 days a week. Then with the boys out of school for the holidays and then sick kiddos off and on for the last 2 weeks, today was the first day I got back into the gym in almost a month. And boy do I feel it. BUT it feels good! Hubby is due home from the Middle East sometime in April, soooo it's time for me to get my ass in gear. I have decided to join Marsha over at Sassy Mini Dolls for her Wednesday Weigh In. So I am startinf fresh today and going to put it all out there. I think this is the heaviest I've ever been and I am trying to get rid of it. I know it's not going to just melt away, and it's going to take work. I didn't get fat over night and it's going to take time for it to come off. I weighed myself today at the gym and at 255 I am NOT happy with the numbers which just convinces me even more to work harder at getting it off. More motivation is of course Donnie coming home. I would like to be able to find something really pretty to wear when he comes home but WILL be buying it in a smaller size!!!
Today at the gym we did 30 minutes on the treadmill...I did 8-10 of them at a incline of 4 and spent my time at between 3.3 & 3.5mph. I averaged a 17.5 minute mile. After that we did 5 sets up and down the stairs...I didn't count, but I think there are atleast 20. (those about killed me but I did them!) Then we moved on to the strength training part of our workout. Each day we work a different area of our body. Today we decided to do Chest. So we did 3 sets of Incline, Decline and Flat bench presses. Very little weight, but it felt good. The Decline ones always make me feel like I'm going to slip of the bench! LOL After that we did 3 sets each on several of the Chest machines. (sorry I can't remember what they were) It was definitely a workout but like I said I feel really good!
Thanks so much to Carrie and Rhonda, my workout buddies! I really appreciate you gals!!!
Well I gotta scoot...gotta hop in the shower and then run to the grocery store. Take care!
