I thought today would be a good day to track the workout progress to date for the week.

The Plan (in black) – Actual (in Green)

Monday – spin

I went to Beth’s spinning class.  This was my second class since my knee injury.  It feels so great to be back!

Tuesday – try out the new higher intensity water aerobics class

This class is new and Sharan is the instructor.  It was an awesome class.  I actually felt like it was challenging.  This is something that I’d like to figure out how to fit into my workout schedule on a regular basis.  It’s a pay class, but seems worth every penny.  I think I will become a regular.

Wednesday – cardio warm up (45 minutes on the elliptical), then weights

We got to the J a bit later than I planned.  I warmed up with 17 min on the elliptical.  I rocked the intensity and strides per minute.

  • Chest press (2 sets with 12 pound dumbbells)
  • Fly (2 sets with 10 pound dumbbells)
  • Shoulder press (2 sets with 5 pound dumbbells)
  • Biceps (2 sets with 12 pound dumbbells)
  • Triceps (1 set of 60, 50, 40, 30, then 20 pounds)
  • Leg curl
  • Leg extension
  • Lunges (1 set of 10 on each side)
  • Push ups (using bench or Smith bar)
  • Plank (tried 3 times, didn’t have a way to time myself)
  • Abs machine (it was busy every time I walked by)
  • Abs floor exercises (did variety of exercises)

I feel very good about this workout.  I didn’t get to all of the exercises due to time constraints (and I forgot my exact list).  I worked hard and felt like I pushed myself.  It’s good to be on track.

We’re started to make some vacation plans for next summer and I am hoping to really get in shape between now and then.  It’s great to have some extra motivation going into the holiday season.
