Don't tell the trainer "I'm not sore." Mistake on my part which I'll not be repeating soon.

Yesterday was a bear. What else can I say.

That'll teach ya! Remember that DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) takes a couple of days to catch up. You won't escape again!!

Default Copy from my journal

Made it through today's workout fairly effortlessly, once I told the trainer about the two problem areas.

My weakest part is my left shoulder. Maybe it's the rotator cuff, but I don't know enough about anatomy to be sure. To avoid pain, I make my right side do most of the work.

The other weakness is also on the left side of my body and I didn't start feeling the problem until yesterday. It is the left knee and I think the weight was just too heavy. I'm so stubborn that I just keep trying. Duh.

Today I had no issues with pain until the very end. 9 lb. dumbbells were really hard for me, working the biceps.

No workout until next Monday. Then, because of the holiday, I have a week between sessions. I welcome it.

That week off made today's weight training harder, and my trainer added some medicine-ball work at the end. My legs were (and still are) shaky.

Thursday and Friday are my last two sessions. Wish I were rich so I could afford Dustin ongoing. These 10 sessions were my gift to myself, but I can't afford to keep that up. I'll just have to form a new habit and get my butt to the gym at least 2x per week. My Medicare Advantage Plan (under the guise of the Silver Sneakers program) pays the monthly gym fee.

Long time since I posted here, but I've been pretty consistent with my home exercise and gym visits.

Finished up my 10 paid sessions, and learned a lot about my own body, weakness and strengths.

I'm doing more with my home workouts. Now have a 4lb squishy ball for my squats. Also, I already had a Bosu Ball in the garage, pulled it out for more balancing.

One thing I noticed is that I couldn't jump. I suppose this just happens. With age and fear of falling, we just don't jump. Well, I forced myself to get over that fear and am now doing box jumps. Don't get excited. The surface (box) is only 2" high but I can now do 10 jumps in a row. Got over that fear, and fear was what was stopping me. Once I get more adept, I'll expand my horizons with a taller box.

Old ladies, don't let your body stop moving.

Resistance bands with handles for biceps. Core squats using 4lb ball. Still practicing the dead jump and doing my yoga stretches.

Always: The morning walk.

Thanks, Mama. Motivation is always hard. Dog is mine. That and the fear I might freeze in place.

I went back through my Fitbit logs and found that I started logging my exercise walking in May 2014 and I was surprised at how gung ho I was at the start. Of course, I was younger then but the first year I walked 1148 miles while wearing my unit. I only log the pre-dawn walk.

The next year I got sloppy and only logged 906 miles.

This past year, as of today, I'm down to 748 miles.

Maybe I'll do better this New Fitbit Exercise Year.

The temps here are excruciating, and I'm forced to shorter walks. I've also had to take over DH's evening dog walk because of his heart.

In order to get in my exercise, I'm going to be forced back to the gym. Oh well. At least the high today is 111F instead of 114F.
