I finally began a real workout schedule today. I was nervous about setting foot in the gym after I had been away for so long. I kept thinking, "They will know I don't belong here." I'm not a New Year's Resolution person, I just happened to hit my heaviest weight towards the end of the year. Anyway, I went in and everything went fine. Here's what I did:
30 min on elliptical
Leg Extension 40 lb (3x12)
Squats 10 lb db (3x12)
Plie Squats 20 lb db (3x12)
15 min Walk/Run (about 1 mile)
I did not do a ton today, but it was better than doing nothing and I can at least say that I have started. I know I will be sore in the morning, but I liked feeling a sense of accomplishment today. I have pretty much lost all of my strength lol! The leg stuff was a struggle, and I know that when I was really working out consistently that would have been nothing to me. I will get back there and be even better.
I also went to the grocery store today. I bought chicken breasts, salmon, turkey burgers, veggies, and oranges. My biggest struggle is the eating part. Overall, it was a good day, because I got started.
