How did I miss a post yesterday? Well, we did have a busy day, plus I didn't get much sleep and apparently I crashed before I could get here.
Ok, well here's the info.
I felt like I was moving in slow motion again today. I only got 3 hours of sleep, then spent 1 1/2 hours at the gym!! But, the numbers aren't really that bad, thankfully.
Donkey Kicks 2 sets of 20 @ 20 lbs for each leg
Obliques 2 sets of 20 @ 20 lbs on each side
Tried a couple new machines today.
Outer Thigh 2 sets of 20@20 lbs
Inner Thigh 2 sets of 20@20 lbs
My left thigh is really starting to bother me. I actually filled my giant whirlpool tub in the afternoon and soaked for about an hour and a half. I felt like a million bucks when I got out!
Today was an AWESOME day!! I hit a new high in my numbers. I'm sure the fact that I was pissed as hell at Magnum today had a lot to do with that. Hey, whatever it takes, right? Maybe we should fight every morning before I go to the gym. (Ok, obviously I'm kidding!!)
620 calories (highest calories ever)
4 MILES (woo hoo!!! That's my new record!)
I skipped Donkey Kicks today because my left thigh is still hurting. However, I tried some new machines again today, since I really needed to work off some stress energy. I went to the "ab" section today and tried a couple of machines that I thought I could handle. I have no clue what they're really called, so again, I'll just be making up my own names! =)
Ab Cruncher 1 set of 25@20 lbs
Straight Arm Cruncher 1 set of 25@20 lbs
Outer Thigh 2 sets of 25@30 lbs
Inner Thigh 2 sets of 25@30 lbs
Obliques 2 sets of 25@25 lbs on each side
I really wish I wasn't so scared to try new machines on my own, because I REALLY wanted to stay longer at the gym today. I felt like I could have done another hour and a half. But, I'm too embarrassed to try using unfamiliar machines because I know I'll look like an ass. Magnum said that he would go with me on one of his off days to talk me through what I should be doing. In the meantime, I'll just kill it on the machines I know. =)
(I'm starting to rethink tracking these totals now that I'm doing more machines. I'm definitely NOT going to total my reps. Well, for now, I like to see the totals, especially the mileage, so I'll keep doing it for a while longer.)
Ok, I'm looking at these totals and now I'm suddenly annoyed. Based on the number of calories burned, that should equal about a 2 1/2 pound weight loss. But, I'm only down ONE freakin' pound since joining the gym! WTF? Granted, I feel like a million bucks, which truthfully, is more important to me, but still. Give a girl a break!
