Flying Solo

Okay...In an effort to not drain my bank account, but to continue working out with weights, I asked for some help from my friend and trainer Britt. She had me come in last Thursday and then again on Monday to better assess where I was at. And then set me lose with two workouts she put together for me.

Wednesday was the first workout I did flying solo. And it was great. I skipped one exercise entirely- incline twists- because I didn't want to do them. It was that simple and since I didn't have anyone forcing me to do it, I didn't. But I did everything else. I pushed myself hard and it was a great workout. And a great feeling to know I can do a full workout with weights and everything without needing someone standing right next to me telling me what to do.

I'm not fooling myself, I know I wouldn't necessarily know what to do if Britt didn't tell me. But still.

So here's what I did:
Step-ups on exercise bench (3x15 with 10lbs weights in each hand)

Back machine (3x15- 40lbs)

Fly machine (3x15- 55lbs)

Incline crunches (3x15)

Lying ham curl (3x15- 50lbs)

Bench dips (3x15)

Hammer curl (3x15 with 10lb weights)

Bosu crunch (3x15)

Mountain climbers

The gym has, not surprisingly, been packed since the New Year. And because I did my workout on Wednesday after work, I had to wait for machines and ask to work in a set (yes, that's about as gym language-y as I can get). I don't like when the gym is that busy, but I figure in another month or so, it'll die down.

My day off from work today has been great. Very relaxing- watched Leap Year (which obviously wasn't that good, but it was mostly entertaining) and had a nice lunch with Katie Grant, did a little shopping and am now waiting for Lindsay to land. I'm having my meal off from the program tonight and am going to enjoy a burger from The Counter. I can't wait!
