Random things I’m noticing that show progress:
- 6 push-ups in a row! Not once, but twice this week. Sure, they were elevated and from my knees…but only about a month and a half ago I could barely even do one. (By the way, for anyone traveling, using one of the dresser drawers in your hotel room turned upside-down with a towel over it works great for elevation. I suppose a nightstand drawer would also work.)
- Chest presses using a 35 pound bar! Next week we will try 45lbs. Wooooo!
- I can do squats and lunges like nobody’s business!
It’s been a crazy week. I was on the road Monday through Thursday which meant no training on Monday. I did use the hotel gyms though (my travels had me at a different hotel each night)…go me. The last hotel was very new and had brand new equipment including various medicine balls and a balance ball. That was nice.
Other craziness had me dealing with fraud issues on my corporate credit card. That meant there was a restriction placed on my card that I had to call and have lifted for each transaction all week long. A rental car and three hotels made that real pain in the you-know-what.
On the up side, our team got awesome news that our manager has received permission to almost double our team’s size! Included in that news was some other stuff that is potentially very awesome for me. I will write more about those details if things work out like I hope.
This weekend my goals are to get the pooches out for good walks in the neighborhood each day and spend some fun time with my guy. Right now I need to get back and finish up some work so I can get my weekend started! Happy Friday everyone and have a great weekend!
