Just want to say that there have been some super quality posts from you all in the past little while. I’m so thankful to be in the company of such intelligent, knowledgeable and STRONG ladies!
I had to bump my scheduled workout for yesterday to this morning so I could finish working on an extremely challenging assignment that was due yesterday afternoon. Though my doctorate is in sociology, I’m taking 2 courses in population and public health this term, and they are kicking my ass, mainly because I’m learning everything from square one. Reading a toxicological assessment is NOT the same as reading a qualitative research report. But I’m learning, which is the important thing.
Anywho, workout for today:
Squats – 3 sets of 10 @ 105 lbs
Push-ups – 3 sets of 10
Seated Row – 2 sets of 10 @ 65 lbs, 1 set of 8 @ 65 lbs
Step-ups – 3 sets of 10 @ 25 lbs – 5 up
Prone Jack knife – 3 sets of 12 (medium ball)
2 quick side notes:
1. My amazon order came in the other day and I was SO excited! I got two books, this one, which is probably useless and irrelevant to most of you, and The Great Fitness Experiment, which I’ve heard great things about. I figure it will be a fun, breezy, bedtime read. I can relate to her experience of trying out just about everything kind of workout under the sun – but she stuck them all out for a month each! I’ll write a review once I’m finished reading.
2. I have been having major troubles sleeping lately. I feel like it’s hard to fall asleep, and then when I do, my sleep is extremely disrupted. I’ll wake up several times throughout the night, hot or uncomfortable, unable to get back to sleep. The worst part is I’ve been having extremely scary and graphic dreams 😦 I don’t know what’s going on. It feels like I’m going to bed caffeinated, but I only have one cup of coffee or tea (at best) early in the morning, so I know it’s not that. I’m wondering if it has anything to do with the lifting program and/or diet. Do any of you have thoughts on this?
Have a great day!
