My first non weigh-in, Weigh-in Wednesday and I just couldn’t resist getting on the scales. After all its habit. I’m pleased to report that nothing scary happened over Thanksgiving – my WEEK of eating whatever I want and not exercising. I only gained a pound, which I’m attributing to daily fluctuations and the lack of good tasting water at our Thanksgiving celebration location. (I drank a ton of diet sodas in that 3 day period.)
We started our “heavy” weight training yesterday, and I’m pleased with the results. The idea is to get heavy enough that you get to failure in 8-10 reps (3 sets). Some of the weights were more challenging than others, and we let our fear of muscle soreness hold us back a little. I’m making notes on my worksheet (yes, I’m a big enough of a dork to take a binder into the weight room). I’ll keep the same weight on the exercises that made me sore, and increase in the areas where I can’t feel the burn this morning!
How’d you do? Post your weekly victories (and challenges) and link up over at the Sisterhood.
As for the globetrotting – I’m at 73 miles for the challenge.
Okay now that’s out of the way, I want to brag for a moment. Jay and I got our electric bill yesterday and take a wild guess how much it was…
We are that
Okay so we are also blessed to be renting a very energy efficient home. One thing we’ll miss about the rental when we move at the first of the year.
