I had my regular trainer workout with Emily this morning.  It was great!

5 min warm up on the elliptical


  • single arm chest press- 1 set, 30lbs, 10-12 reps each side  (my left arm is stronger than my right, it’s obvious with single arm work)
  • push ups off the BOSU-2 sets of 10
  • single arm chest fly-1 set, 30 pounds, 10-12 reps each side
  • double arm chest fly-1 set, 70 pounds, 10-12 reps
  • bicep curl/overhead press combo using 8lb dumbbells while standing on Dyna disks-15 reps
  • PLANK – 46 sec.  YEAH!  2 min here I come.
  • medicine ball squat swings- 2 sets of 15-20 using a 12lb ball
  • dead lifts, straight leg, feet together – holding 20lb dumbbells, 15 reps
  • walking lunges holding 15lb dumbbells down the walkway and back
  • lunges w/body weight and knee lift while balancing on the other leg

I followed up the workout with 20min on the elliptical.

Later this afternoon, the kids and I ended up walking a trail that was just under a mile.  My son walked and was exhausted at the end.  My daughter was happily pushed in the stroller.  The trail had a couple of small hills and was nicely paved.

Now, it’s 8pm and I still have points left to eat and I’m not hungry.  It’s truly been one of my best food days in a long time.  :-)  I’ll make a good choice for a snack in a bit and be ready for bed.
