Yesterday I was tired all day. Went into our training session at 5:15 PM feeling that way too. Did our usual 10 minute cardio warm-up, I felt a little better … then Boyd had us go straight to the leg press.
Little did I know that I would leg press 500 pounds! and my husband Robert 650!
I couldn’t believe he did that! Talk about being “pumped” up!
I don’t know how he does it, but our trainer Boyd seems to know just when we would be able to handle more weight during our workouts. I certainly didn’t know! I left there feeling much better and energized too.
I still haven’t lost any more “weight” yet, and that is pushing me to find something different to do in my training “off” days. I have been trying the “get up earlier” to do 20 minutes of extra cardio, but it hasn’t been really working for me. Lately I’ve had to much to do in the evenings, and get to bed late, so getting up earlier than 7am is not an option. I’m one of those that needs at least 7 hours sleep, if not 8 or more. So sometime this week I’m going to start doing a cardio workout video called Debbie Siebers’ Slim in 6(weeks). You know, it’s one of those I bought several years ago with high hopes and ambition, used it for a week or two and then fizzled out. I can’t even count how many times I’ve done that! But I thought it might be time to try it again since I am really in better shape, muscle and cardio wise, than I have been in a long time. I’ll report on how that goes after I continuously succeed to do it for a week or two.
We did something fun this weekend. We went to dinner with friends at a place that was dance club also. It was our wedding anniversary this Monday, so we made Saturday evening our night out to celebrate. It was a lot of fun to be out like that, and dancing! Yes, my husband actually danced with me! Made me feel like I was in my 20′s again. Good exercise too! I had forgotten how much fun that can be. We were drinking wine, and water too. Remember, moderation is definitely the key (and good Feng Shui) to treating your body right and not feeling bad the next day!
