Week 10 Day 4

The picture below is what it feels like in the morning with no coffee and a couple of nights in a row of bad sleep. Yes I am a bit of a Star Wars geek.  But seriously lets talk about caffeine.  A lot of folks use coffee or some other beverage with caffeine to stay alert […]

Week 10 Day 2: Man Made

You will notice below a new set of initials for an exercise.  Man Makers.  They utilize a set of dumbbells. First you do a bicep curl and press then down into a push up position by doing a squat thrust.  I will post a video later on this week when I have some time to […]

Week 10 Day 1

Switched it up a little and replaced the clean and press with the baby press, which is an exercise I was doing early on. All bitterness, anger and wrath, shouting and slander must be removed from you, along with all malice. And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God […]

Step Goal Achieved!

Since I have been tracking my steps with a Fitbit device I have never achieved the 70,000 steps a week goal. So this week is a pretty big deal for me.  As I look back on my life this doesn’t really compare to what I have achieved.  When I was training for a race I […]

Week 9 Day 5

Today I had too much going on at work to get all but one set done in the am but for some reason was able to get the rest done in the afternoon.  Maybe it was because it was Friday.  13,794 steps today and already achieved my goal of 70,000 steps for the week.  Woo […]

Week 9 Day 3: Still easing

Still easing on in but that’s not a bad thing.  Have to tell you I may be easing but its not easy.  My motivation has waned here this week and for a couple of reasons.  One, working back from an injury or even a tweaking is never fun.  It can ultimately lead to giving up […]

Week 9 Day 2

Happy Tuesday.  Still easing on in today I limited my reps for the Push-ups and Lunges down to 15 instead of 25.  Also did a lighter weight on the French Press.  And my lower back doesn’t feel as wonky. ***Warning. Don’t push it, especially with your back! If you injure yourself to the point were […]

Week 9 Day 1: Easing on back

So today I decided to get back into it and was cautious.  I was able to get two sets in and then instead of trying to push it decided to finish out the day with the yoga poses and stretching.  Additionally, I busted out the old foam roller to work on my IT band and […]
