I’m actually ashamed I kind of found that tiring. Haha.
I’m really enjoying circuit workouts instead of straight cardio right now.
Meh, average-to-fair session today. (Typing that reminds me of the hippie-dippie private elementary school I went to where, for first through third grades, we got graded only as “Outstanding,” “Excellent,” “Positive,” or “Needs Improvement,” and the grades were on things like “sharing with others.”)
My awesome gym decided to close for renovations for a week, apparently (yay), so I’m stuck lifting at home in the garage, i.e. a dark cave that could double as a steam room since SURPRISE, it’s raining again today.
Still no cardio which I’m actually okay with right now since my appetite levels out anyways.
Log after the jump.
I thought a circuit workout sounded good for a change today instead of straight lifting or cardio, so I opened Nike Training Club and tried out the 45-minute “Body Buffer” workout from the “Get Toned” menu.
I have assisted pull-ups and dips planned today but the thought of going to my gym just for the Gravitron machine is not that appealing…
I’m thinking weighted (DB) tricep dips off my weight bench and maybe modified pull-ups from a 45-ish degree angle in my squat rack?? IDK… I don’t have a pull-up bar and can’t put one up.
Edited to add: I’m really considering canceling my chain gym membership since I only go a couple times a week. I found a local Crossfit gym that has an oly lifting-only membership option for way less than regular Crossfit, and I can buy Zumba or whatever other classes a la carte at another studio…
Just trying to stay healthy, fit, and sane in a world that is often none of these.
This blog is about healthy food, fitness, body image, self care, recovery, weightlifting, and all that kind of stuff.
After years of obsessive calorie-counting, bad habits, and worse self-image, I'm choosing to get better... So bear with me as I retool this blog a bit.
