Default ~Mis' Journey to Better Health~

Ok, I was alittle reluctant to start a gym log but I'm finally doing it. I want to keep track here vs in my journal to hold myself accountable. I don't know about having all of the links at the bottom of my posts but oh well.

Today:
5 minute treadmill warm up
Weight training (arms & legs) 25 mins
Stability ball 5 mins
Push ups 2 sets 10 reps & sit ups 25
Stretching 5 mins

Ok, I feel better about posting that, lets see if I can be consistent about working out.

I feel awful to say that I hated almost every minute of it. I procrastinated all morning about working out. I walked around in my workout clothes for a long time and finally started at 1:30. So glad it's over with.

Weds - no workout

Today I combined weight training & cardio because of yesterday.

5 min warm up
30 mins treadmill, no incline super fast walking
weights (machine & free weights) 10-12 reps - 3 sets arms, abs, chest, legs, back. The dip assist and pull up assist definitely make me sore.
I'm trying to lift alot of weight and only do 10 reps. I'm not lifting more then I can handle but it's still more then I used to do. I'm slowly getting over my fear that I will bulk up.
5 min cool down & stretch

Well, today I did this same routine minus the pep I was sweating 15 mins into the workout and dreaded the thought of 30 more mins to go and hated the thought of .... wait what??? Last time I did 10 mins w/ very steep incline, I thought I did 15 last time!!! Ok, I feel soooo good now, I did 15 mins w/ a very steep incline Sheesh, no wonder my legs were burning.
Ok, I did

5 min warm up
30 min fast walking w/ incline
15 min w/ very steep incline
15 mins no incline super fast walking
cool down

My shirt was soaked and I could really feel my abs contracting while walking w/ the incline.

Edit: My 6 year old is obsessed with doing push ups and sit ups lately. He challenged me to a round of both. I did 30 push ups & 50 pilates sit ups. Whew...I broke a sweat.
