Back in the Gym...And It Feels So Good!
Well, well, well......look who the cat dragged in. That was the gym this morning. To me. It has been moooooonths since I actually went to work out for real. Like, with weights. I have been up in DC for the past few days and honestly, I haven't been so great to my body. I have had desert like 4 times in 6 days, I haven't been abiding by my body's need for gluten free/dairy free fare. And, I am feeling it today. So, I figured I would go down to the enormous (seriously, it is the nicest hotel gym I have seen yet) gym and get my sweat on. I had no real plan. I just wanted to move. So, I did a couple circuits after completing my 50 squats for the squat challenge that Lisa is leading this month. My circuit was: Leg Lifts, Leg Curl, Leg Press, Barbell Chest Press, Dumbbell Lateral and Front Arm Raises with a Bicep Curl, Seated Flyes, Seated Row, Glute Extension, Lat Pull Down, Adduction, and Bosu Crunches. I did 2 full circuits, 10 reps each exercise (except abs...I did 15), resting 1 minute between circuits, no rest between movements. While this wasn't too extreme, I didn't want to push myself too hard on the first day. Slow and steady wins the race. Tomorrow I will do a bit of cardio and my 50 squats , along with burpess. Just wanted to share what I did today. What did your workout look like? xo, Kara
