Since I use the Bowflex a lot it's kind of hard for me to know exactly what I'm lifting because even though the rods say certain weights, I know that it is much easier to pull those then if I was using "real" weights. For example I did bench presses and used a total of 140 pounds, but I'm sure I couldn't really bench press that.

Last night I did use a regular barbell and did 3 sets of 12 military presses at 40 pounds. I also did Arnold presses with 15 pound dumbbells and front shoulder raises with 15 pounds. It doesn't sound that heavy, but clearly it's working.

Wish I didn't have the dreaded BAT WINGS - my triceps are in there - I swear!!

Tuesday, Feb. 4th:

Trudging through ice and slush in the dark to the gym, and thank goodness for YakTrax strapped to the soles of my boots. It stopped snowing yesterday around 6 PM but it's a mess out there.

30 minutes StairMaster, the usual, with the usual results
60 minutes shoulders, biceps, triceps -- okay, the bench pressing is going PRETTY badly and it's because of my ischial tuberosity issues, because when I sink back on the bench holding the barbell, it HURTS! because of all the weight balanced momentarily on my butt. And that seems to take a lot out of me, even though I am using a different set of muscles to do the press.

I think I have to stop benching and do pushups instead till this heals.

Need to catch up-
Feb 1-yoga, weights
Feb2-ran, push ups
Feb3-ran, push-ups
Won't be running today unless they push the 10" of snow off the road. I'll probably revert to yoga and my weights I have at home.

You guys do some killer workouts. I feel like a lightweight.

YAYOG = You Are Your Own Gym

It's a bodyweight thing. I know coworkers who do it in hotel rooms/gyms while traveling.

Wednesday, Feb. 5th:

Trudging through the aftermath of a snowstorm and a tension-ridden day to the gym for a spin class that was surprisingly well-attended by other shut-ins who just couldn't stand it anymore.

45 minute spin class, a tough one

Yup, YAYOG is You Are Your Own Gym. It's a book, but I just have the app. I love it. It doesn't take much time, and I can do it at home, which us important to me because I am both poor and lazy. Getting myself to a gym is a big stumbling block. Though if the body weight exercises ever stop being challenging I might have to figure out the gym thing. Meanwhile I can just roll out of bed and go, brushing my teeth during the rest periods.

Thursday, Feb. 6th:

A good day on the treadmill, despite my bad mood, or maybe because of it, which made me determined to beat up this insensible object.

25 minutes straight running at 4.8 mph, solely due to mind over matter, since I have the breath for it, even though I have a wonky lead-footed gait

Then deadlifts: first 75 lbs, then 95 lbs. Perhaps not a good idea since now my butt hurts again.
