It’s August 15th and I had a great workout today!
I am still doing a circuit style routine including both upper and lower body workouts. Today, I added two new routines in the circuit which included some new triceps sets and a reverse-hand bar curls set. For my other, “normal” sets, on some I added 50% more reps into the sets to create fatigue during my routine. Now (late afternoon as I type this) I can feel the burn still from the mid-day work-out.
I don’t have bathroom scales anymore (on my “to get” list) but I feel I’m still in the 220 - 225 weight range. I’m eating a lot more trying to get back up to my goal of 235 - 240 range.
For those just joining, I’ve lost 60 pounds over the past year (I lost 20 pounds in the first three weeks from just changing my eating habits and starting a “three times a week” walking routine). But that is 10 pounds more than I wanted to drop. Once I started, I couldn’t control the descent.
After today’s workout, I followed up with my afternoon round of vitamins and a 32 oz glass of Whey Protein chocolate milk. Then, a nice swim to cool down.
Wednesday I’ll continue with my routine with a very early AM cardio workout (push-ups, crunches, fast-paced walk, etc.). Same for Friday.
Feeling great and life is good!
