Just for the record Ruthie...I don't feel gratified about being right. I'd rather see you pain free and able to workout to your heart's delight!

Of course, I knew that!!! I feel the same way about you. I'd rather see you with the energy & strength of 2 months ago than 'kinda exhausted' like you are now. Your advice was wisely given and I was simply acknowledging it publicly.

I got one today
I'll be able to start my own excersise log too now huh.
I love the motion and the fact it is silent couldnt afford it but hopefully that will help insure i use it


Jenny, Oooooh, I'm slightly envious and glad for you. Anytime I start using a new-to-me piece of gym equipment there is a short time where I'm not very comfortable with the motion: joints, muscles, ligaments, etc. Soon you'll love it (if you don't already) and wonder how you managed without it.

Next: a set of weights, a bench and BFL. Your Nick will be surprised at the hard-body wife he has. LOL

Red face Whew, it's dusty in here

Thought I'd resurrect this journal. I seem to be getting into the working out frame of mind. Spent a few hours last night in Fitday planning and entering some custom foods. For the record: I have a membership at Fitness World.

15 mins on treadmill at a moderate pace. For the sake of my legs & back I must get my butt moving in addition to the weights.

Chest and bicep workout a la Body Rx. I'm pleased that I worked to failure 3 times out of 4 exercises.

CHEST PRESS (Keiser machine)
6 x 35lbs 6 x 45 lbs 6 x 55 lbs 6 x 65 lbs 6 x 75 lbs
45 degr INCLINE CHEST PRESS
6 x 12 lbs 6 x 15 lbs 6 x 20 lbs 6 x 25 lbs 6 x 30 lbs
DUMBBELL FLYES
10 x 5lbs 10 x 8lbs 6 x 10lbs 8 x 12 lbs 6 x 15lbs
DB CURLS
8 x 8lbs 6 x 10lbs 6 x 12lbs 6 x 15lbs 6 x 20 lbs
PREACHER DB CURLS
8 x 8lbs 8 x 10lbs 6 x 12 lbs 6 x 15lbs 5 x 20lbs (left arm) 6 x 20lbs (right arm)

Default 2nd w/o this week

Back & triceps

25 mins on elliptical trainer, avg HR 168-174 Hours later walking results in huffing & puffing (asthma). The only way to improve my cardiovascular strength is to get my butt moving. This will improve with time & perseverance. I do take my bronchodilator into the gym with me

Keiser seated row machine
6 reps x 30lbs 6 x 40lbs 6 x 50 lbs 6 x 60lbs 7 x 65lbs
Lat pulldown
8 x 50lbs 6 x 70lbs 6 x 90 lbs 6 x 100 lbs 6 x 110lbs *almost failure*
Bench 1 arm row
6 x 10lbs 6 x 12lbs 6 x 15lbs 6 x 20 lbs 6 x 25 lbs *almost failure*
Tricep extension

The counts, before a huge serving of Karen's tiramisu

Total: 1681
Fat: 112 1005 61%
Sat: 31 278 17%
Poly: 5 41 2%
Mono: 17 156 10%
Carbs: 45 109 7%
Fiber: 18 0 0%
Protein: 130 520 32%
Alcohol: 0 0 0%

I would have normally had more protein but I raced home from the gym to shower & go out for coffee with a friend. Great visit but no way to resist tiramisu!
