I can’t tell you how excited I am today. I finally felt good enough to go to the gym and lift some weights! Yay!
When I got to the gym I felt like a child that was released into the candy store. I wanted to do everything all at once. The voice of reason, however, reminded me that I must not give in to my fitness ADD and just stick to the program. So, I stuck to it.
Today was my upper body day. After going through my first set of exercises I felt a touch “fried”. I think I over zealously pushed myself a little harder then I should have after a long absence. Second and third set of exercises I breezed through, which tells me that I probably need to increase the weight or the number of reps, and finally when I got around to training my biceps, I was completely bored. I need to come up with a more creative ways to train my biceps or at least get them engaged when I am doing my lower body. Finally, I trained abs today as well. Again, I need a more creative way to train abs. I am very bored with my Russian Twists and V-ups and Captain’s Chair exercises…
The more I continue working out at the small, private gym that I go to, the more I realize how much I miss having someone to spot me, talk to, and workout with. I use to dislike training with other people, now I feel like I need a pack.
I think I am going to start looking for an excepting bunch of body builders to take me under their wing. I think it is time to be part of a group.
