I like rowing...who knew?

This morning bright and early I went grocery shopping. Walked to the mall and back -30min.
Didn't really buy a lot of food more along the lines of travel sized stuff for my two days in camp.

I didn't really know what to buy now that I won't eat anything at home until probably Thursday with the exception of cereal. So it seemed a waste to buy anything. Maybe the weekend will no longer be my grocery shopping day. I'm having dinner with a friend on Wednesday but I guess that could be my new grocery day as then I'd be home for 5 straight days.

I didn't want to go to the gym, I did laundry and then I gave myself a good talking to and I went to the gym.

I didn't have a plan when I got there. So I went with the flow. Spa Lady doesn't necessarily have all the free weight equipment that World Health has so sometimes I have to get creative.

Today I did the following:

1000m rowing - 5min 11 sec (I'm going to try to beat that)

I found the padded bar and if it's the same as WH it's probably around 19lbs.
3 sets - 1st 21 reps, 2nd 15 reps, 3rd 9 reps
Bicep curls - I did more reps as I can do these with 30lbs
Skull Crusher
Lat Pull Down - 60lbs

Then I did 50 sit ups (25 normal, 25 the other way)
50 Squats

All this took me about 45min, and I walked to and from the gym 30min. So that's 105min of exercise today.

Of course I pass KFC and Dairy Queen on the way home and the desire was strong to pick up lunch there but then I thought why let all I did go to waste by blowing it on that. I went straight home and now need to make lunch.

This week is a little off workout wise as Tuesday will be yoga, Wednesday dinner with friend and I'll see trainer on Thursday.

Oh well most likely not be blogging Mon and Tue but I shall tell you all about my site adventures.

Have a great week!

I love adding 5 or 10 minutes on the rowing machine. It's so good for a full body strength and cardio. Just make sure you are using proper form!

Good job bypassing the fast food. I too have to pass that stuff on the way home from the gym and sometimes it's a real challenge.

Kudos on getting to the gym even when you didn't feel like it! And that fast-food temptation can be a tough thing to say no to, goooo willpower! :)

I LOVE rowing and hate it.
It's so hard that three or four minutes kick my butt----but I feel as though Ive REALLY WORKED OUT.
