I was tired this morning. It was difficult to get out of bed. Most definitely, today was a day to practice my “self-ass kicking” skills. Sometimes I just have to yell at myself or let’s say, speak firmly in the most motivational way possible to get the hell out of bed. I was groggy. Today I began my one cup of coffee a day New Year goal. I have yet to decide whether that’s really one cup, or if two shots of espresso in one cup are one cup…quandry.
Went on the elliptical for 15 minutes. That wasn’t too bad. I have this thing where I start off at 6.5 to 7.0 mph at the beginning, and with every song I’m listening to, I bump it up to the next 0.5 mph range. I ended up in the 8.0 to 8.5 mph window.
Today was supposed to be a circuit day, however, I ended up doing mostly legs: squat press, leg extension, and curls compounded with walking lunges between sets. I did a few sets of pec flyes at a relatively light weight with pushups between sets. My left shoulder is still twinging a bit and I’m being cautious not to irritate more.
All in all, not a bad workout.
Weighed in at 157.
