Gym. Session 80 of 124. Legs.
We started by doing measurements. My pinches are a little bit tighter, and my muscle circumference measurements are just a little bit up, but not really a lot from last time.

I've gotten out of the habit of doing the cardio, and the abs floor work. Time to get back into the groove. If I do it right and stick to it, I can probably melt off the all the rest of my unwanted fat (which is mostly wrapped around my lower back) by the end of the year.

I need to buy a bathroom scale. The scale they have at the gym keeps getting f0x0r3d, and was reading me as heavy as I was back in March. I Dont Think So. Plus, I need to get my basal heartrate. Something to try to remember to do first thing in the morning for the next couple of days. It's just that it's a royal pain in the ass for me to find my own consistant pulse.

Since it was Wednesday, I did legs.

  1. Hack Squat. Up 10lb. I probably could have done more.
  2. Single leg press. No change. The muscles around my knees were starting to really catch fire.
  3. Standing lunges, no change. Couldnt finish last set.
  4. Cycled with Ball Squats, no change. These two really kicked my ass, I was noticably wobbling on my feet afterwards.
  5. Seated calves. Up 10 lb. Burn baby burn.

And I was done, sopping wet, trembling. Taking a 6 day, 2 session break sure didn't help my numbers. (But oh, what a wonderful trip it was...)

You should buy a neat little toy like Dad has...his oxymeter. They're dear but pretty convenient.

Where are you looking for your pulse? If in the neck, it is my completely not humble opinion that finding the carotid pulse is a Royal Pain in the Posterior. Try wrist (thumb side of the wrist joint-where all the creases are) or, even easier, groin (find where your hip crease ought to be (at you age, you don't yet have a hip crease, most likely) and feel around there). Trust me; much easier than the carotid. Just anterior to (in front of) the ear there is one as well, that isn't that hard to find. Good luck.
