September Fitness Challenge

Day 11. 100 lbs.! I worked out for a good, challenging 40+ minutes today -- 32 devoted to cardio. Then I moved on to do 12 reps each on a trio of machines. Being 5'2, I spend a lot of time adjusting and readjusting the seats. When I got to the leg press, I was so focused on getting the seat right that I didn't even check on the weight, I just started moving my legs. It was hard, to be sure, but it felt good, too. I looked at the weights and saw it was set at 100 lbs.! I didn't realize I had become that much stronger (if not slimmer) since I've been taking all this more seriously. I'm really very proud of myself.


  1. I'm really proud of you too. And I know it is a pain to have to readjust the settings on the machines all the time. But what I hate the most is when the muscle guy leaves his uber heavy weights on the bars and I have to throw my back out trying to remove them - by the time I'm done I figure I've satisfied enough reps just doing that.

  2. And I apologize for the fact that my comments are generally longer than your actual posts!



Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
