Day 3 of Strength Training

AKA: Oh my I am hurting, but in a good way.

The pictured workout consisted of 2 Modified Compound SuperSets.

#1: Back and Thighs: Squats with Dumbell Rows (8lbs)
      Chest and Core: Push-Ups w/ Side Rotation (modified)

#2  Shoulders and Thighs: Upright Row w/ Side to Side Plie Squats (8lbs)
      Triceps and Thighs: Plie Squats and Tricep Extension (10lbs)

Today was a bit harder. I did have to modify the 2nd part of the 1st compound superset. I am not ready for pushups and knee push ups hurt because of the arthritis in my knees. I can not kneel for very long at all. Instead I did Wall Push Ups.

I have also been having fun logging my workouts on Fitocracy. From the about page: "Fitocracy is the game you play to improve your fitness. Play it to track your progress, compete against your friends, and get real results in your physical fitness."
Right now I am level 6 and after tomorrow's workout I will probably get to level 7. I am still learning about the site and finding some groups to follow.

Back on Sunday I mentioned some goals. At this time I have only eaten out once which was tonight at Firehouse Subs. I have also kept up with my food diary all week. I may eat out twice this weekend, but 3 times in 7 days is MUCH better than I have done in the past 4 weeks.

Now it is time to get ready for bed since tomorrow is a busy day with going to Cardio for Comfort and then a bunch of errands. I am very nervous and excited about tomorrow. No idea if I will be able to keep up but I am definitely going to try.


  1. You rock! You can do it, I know you can. You have been my inspiration these past few months and I am almost down 20 lbs...been going to the gym a lot with my daughter. :)

  2. I know this is late, but November was a crazy month for everyone, hehe. Are you still doing Fitocracy? good, bad weird? And also, do you ever sign in to it with Facebook, or do you just have your own account? I never know what to do about that sort of thing. I like the ease and convenience of using FB but hate the fact that it's FB and that it can post to my wall without my knowledge or direct consent. I require veto privileges! ;-)

  3. @-JI am not really doing Fitocracy. There was a troll in the healthy at any size community that decided to start up on a post I did. I had to report the jerk and some others. Just soured me on the site. When I did do it I did not log in w/ FB. I try really hard to not link things much w/ FB.
