A day in the life of

Here is another shot of a typical day for me activity wise. Click on the image to see it up close.

Today’s workout at the gym. Note how I actually get up earlier than I had set up the GoWear fit for initially. So, it doesn’t have the calorie burn from that earlier time in the window. I am just too lazy to change it, so it has me getting up at 7, when I am usually up by 6:30 and working out by 7! Note how you can tell when I get up and down during the from working at the computer.

Today’s strength training was moderate in activity, and the run was BPM sequenced with a podcast from jogtunes.com. Going around the track. Much better than the treadmill. I like the treadmill for intervals, though. 13000 steps today.

Doing the New Rules of Lifting for Women. I actually am fairly more advanced than the start of this program is, so going with fewer exercises is a change up for me. However, they are different than ones I normally do and it has been my first experience in the squat cage. I realized that I am way stronger than I thought.
Strength:
Deadlifts: 1 x 15 with 10 bar for warmup
1 x 15 with 45 pound barbell
1 x 15 with 55 pound barbell

Superset:
Wide grip lat pulldown: 1 x 15 40 pounds, 1 x 15 50 pounds
Dumbbell shoulder press: 1 x 15 12 pounds dumbbells, 1 x 15 15 pound dumbbells.

Superset:
Dumbbell lunges: 2 x 15 20 pound dumbbells
Stability ball crunches: 2 x 15

Friday and Monday will be better tests of how much I can do with the barbell, now that I have the hang of it!

    Thanks for mentioning the book title. I added it to my Amazon wish list. 🙂 I have been struggling to get a routine together.

    I can’t wait to see how you progress through the NROL program! I started out really weak and my strength increased by leaps and bounds, I bet you’ll be a superwoman by the time you finish!!

    I just picked up the NROL book for women this week and plan to start next week after the Easter weekend. Thanks for heading me towards such a great program! Good luck and I’ll let you know how it goes for me.

    Also, keep up the great blog and all your hard work! I look forward to your posts in my RSS feed and use them for inspiration in my Low carb life and fitness.

    Now if I could just afford a GoWear Fit! 🙂
