Back to the Fit Fix circuit today. I said yesterday that I was going to change up a few things on the circuit, drop the bicep curl machine and lower some weights. Overall, I think that it was very helpful. I feel like I got a really good workout in today (actually felt a bit like puking afterwards. That’s a good sign, right?) and I didn’t feel any of that discomfort in my left shoulder that I’ve been feeling.
I also made an addition to my little emoji system for keeping track of the weights I’m lifting. Since it’s been two weeks since I did this routine, I couldn’t remember how much I wanted to raise weight by on particular exercises. I can barely remember what we planned on having for dinner from day to day, so forgetting how much more to lift is hardly a surprise. I figured I could just add the amount to go up after the little ‘pointing up’ emoji and that would be a good enough system. Keep it simple, right?
Only a few exercises will be going up at this point. A lot still felt tough, which probably has something to do with not working out in so long. But this isn’t a race, and I’m trying not to overdo it here. I really don’t want an injury to sideline me when I feel I’m making good progress. We’ll see how I feel over the next couple of days, and see how Friday’s workout goes. For now, I’m feeling pretty good.
