Finally got back to the gym today. As I stated before, it had only been about 2 weeks, but I still felt gross. Now that work will be slowing down during the week and the kids will be in school, I’ll have a lot more time to spend being healthy. I will actually be able to use my scheduled days off as I want instead of going in for overtime. Basically I worked every day (aside from 1 week vacation) in July and August. It was exhausting but it needed to be done. I spent a lot of time staring at the ceiling late at night instead of sleeping, thinking about the money that I owed. After working all my days off and staying for double shifts, I think I have enough time to pay it all off! Phew!
Today I started a new weight lifting routine. I’m pretty good at making them up. I like to mix it up so I don’t get bored. So I’ve started a 3 day, full body, weight lifting routine. The days in between I will do some high intensity conditioning and extra core work. Here was today’s.
- Straight leg dead lifts
- Dumbbell step ups
- Barbell bench press
- Dumbbell chest flys
- Dumbbell bent over rows
- Dumbbell lateral raises
- Resistance band curls
- Resistance band overhead triceps
My whole body was pumped at the end. It felt great! I’m looking forward to Wednesday when I create Day 2.
