Jason would like my readers to know that he does not actually wear that shirt. I think he keeps it in the closet to taunt me!
I don’t like working out in the morning. I’ve tried a bunch of different times and it’s just not for me. But then I end up making plans at night and not working out at all. I was supposed to run four miles tonight but it was a friends birthday and I wanted to take her out to dinner. Why I didn’t plan for this ahead of time and run at lunch, I don’t know. But anyway, I tried to go to the gym before meeting her and couldn’t snag a treadmill for the life of me. So I did legs instead. I did:
squats, 3 sets of 12
seated leg press, 50 lbs, 3 sets of 12
hamstring curls on stability ball, 3 sets of 8
deadlifts, 50 lbs, 3 sets of 12
fire hydrants, 3 sets of 12, each leg
calf raises, 45 lbs, 3 sets of 12
I never know if I’m lifting weights efficiently. I just sort of haphazardly make up a workout while I’m at the gym. I do legs on their own, or sometimes with abs, and then I do upper body a different day, either all at once, or doing chest and triceps one day and back and biceps the other. But I never have an exact plan. Maybe I should do actual workouts? I know that there are a million online.
How often do you lift weights? How do you decide what exercises to do? Free weights or machines? I probably only lift once or twice a week although I’d like to do more.
I have a major case of writer’s block tonight. I am just having an off day in all sorts of ways. But I’ll be back to myself tomorrow. I think I need a good night’s sleep. How is it almost 11 already?
