I have been exhausted. I went to bed early last night thinking I would get up at 4:15 & workout. I woke up with a nasty hang-over feeling. I still tried to get something done but couldn't even get through the warm-up without feeling like I was going to hurl.
I went to work & got through the day & managed to get it done tonight.
I've been trying to find a gym to join; at Wendy & Deb Gunn's suggestion. Other than the meat markets there really isn't anything around here that I'm interested getting involved in. If you've watched my facebook, you saw the post I put up with a link to a local "hardcore" gym. Seriously? No freakin' way. There is one that has a ladies night to include wine & cheese. IN THE GYM not next door like Rose's gym. WTF?
So I went to Ft Dix to check out their equipment. I haven't been in there in a while. They have all new weight equipment. That leverage stuff with the olympic weights & Nautilus. No free weights aside from the dumbbells. If I had been ready to workout, I couldn't have gotten anywhere near it. The Army was in the house.
My only other option is the gym at McGuire. I do know they have an extensive free-weight area; I just don't know what the equipment is like (benches, pull-downs, etc). I also know they have an extensive Nautilus area. I'm hoping to get out & check it out at lunch time tomorrow.
Tonights workout was Week 1 from last month & the conditioning workout we did at Wendy's:
My weights are considerable heavier than before my trip. I did have to WD40 my pullies & the slides on my equipment to get these weights up there.
Chin-ups 10 reverse & held it for 5 seconds at the bottom with my arms bent (OUCHIE)
Lat pulldowns (I used a mixed grip) 65 lbs
Cable rows 65 lbs
Overhead press 15 lbs
One arm side raise 10 lbs
At Wendy's I found out that I am much stronger than I thought I am.
I've got to get something to eat now. I'm hungry.
