It’s Tuesday, right? Now I am all messed up. Had a good weekend and I sure accomplished a lot! Got the porch all finished. Yay! I’ll have to post some before and after pics of the porch. I wish I could sit out there all the time now.
Time to get back to more consistent lifting. I didn’t do as much in August because I was trying to get those miles in and didn’t do my usual lifting days.
Today was different.
|Complex – Overhead squat/high pull/Push press/good morning||3 sets of 8 each exercise (all done one after the other) with wood bar|
|High Cable Row||3 sets of 10 at 60#|
|Deadlift||3 sets of 10 with 45# bar|
|Russian Twist||3 sets of 10 with 10# DB|
|Reverse crunch||3 sets of 10|
|Alternating Dumbbell Chest Press||3 sets of 8 each side with 20# DBs|
|Stiff-legged Deadlift||3 sets of 10 with 40# bar|
|Arnold Press||3 sets of 10 with 10# DBs|
The gym was very quiet. College students all gone away now, plus I think it is the time when people start slacking on going to the gym. I also got on the treadmill and did some walk/jog intervals to change things up.
So, on to the goals for September.
1. Lose 4 pounds. This is a huge amount for me to try to lose in a month. I will be taking my calories to 1500 (and trying to stay there) except on long ride days. I also will try to do this without being a whiny baby about it, which is usually why I don’t stick with it.
2. Do jog/walk intervals. I need to do better with cross training and I was on the bike so much in August that my body needs something different. I am going to bring in jogging intervals (yeah, I know – why?). Not really C25K, but finding my own way.
3. Get started on the laminate floors in for the downstairs! The porch is done, so on to the next thing. I actually can’t wait for this project. I hate, hate the rugs so much. I’ll show you why when we get the stuff to start the floors.
4. Read 3 books in September. And they have to be fiction for relaxing. I read a *lot* of nonfiction. I started one this weekend and am almost finished, so I hope to get in 2 more. Depending on the length, I guess.
That’s enough. The floors are going to occupy a lot of our time for the next couple months.
