Tuesday I walked down to the basketball court that is at our neighborhood park. I did walking lunges across the length but I did a count of 20 (10 on each leg). Then 20 squat pivots. I then repeated. So a total of 40 lunges (20 on each leg) and 40 squats. Then I went to a park bench and did 15 knee ups on each leg and then 15 step ups on each leg. I started feeling nauseous so I walked back home. I had planned on doing some crunches and push ups but I didn't feel any better after getting home and by the time I rested I was out of workout time. Oh well.
By Thursday, I was still super sore from Tuesday! I made myself get out though. I walked around my block twice and I carried my weights (5lbs each) and did different exercises as I walked. I started with an overhead press and then a front raise with palms up and then triceps holding for a count of 3. I did each exercise through 15 times and then repeated all three again. Then I did bicep curls, tricep extensions and upright rows. Again, I did each exercise 15 times and then repeated all three. This allowed me to walk around my block twice. I then went to the deck and did 10 pushups. Then I did V-Ups, bridge ups with an over head press, crunches, lower crunches where you raise your legs up to 12 o'clock and then just lift your hips off the ground. I did all four 10 times each and then repeated. Then I did a front plank and a plank on each side, holding each plank for 30 seconds. Then I stretched.
I'm glad I was able to workout for at least 2 days. This week I will attempt 3. I've got to get back in the habit of the 3 workouts a week. My weight has stayed the same but I am going to try to set a goal of a 5lb loss by the end of October. I should be able to do that and then that would take my total weight loss since March to 15lbs. Of course I would still have 15 more to go but I think I do better when I set a goal.
