Ladylydia: Still Breathing


Recommended Posts

I have 9 points out of my 60 thus far, mostly due to workouts.   I've been an academy member for years but have only started doing the workout plans recently. They've been pretty excellent so far.

I have had a host of health problems during the past few months. None of it life threatening, or even requiring bedrest; but enough to derail my workouts every time I try to start up again. Things are coming back under control finally, (fingers crossed) and I'm thinking heavily about joining a planet fitness around the block from my work.  I've always been dismissive about planet fitness, but something's better than nothing.  But I can't seem to make myself work out at home, and have to pass the planet fitness to go home, so it's more likely I'll stop in there then go somewhere else.

16 min. of cardio machines- some weird steppy thing for 10 and a treadmill for 6. 

 

Inclined chest press- at 20 lbs for 10, 30 pounds for 8, and 40 lbs for 7.  

An abdominal trust(?)- I had to push a handle by bending my upper body forward:  30 lbs at 10, 40 lbs, at 10, 50 lbs at 8, and 70 lbs at 6. 

 

i'm not trying to go for gains right now, just re-establish my baselines.
