Shock and Owwww

I got up at the crack of dawn (well, to me anyway) and got to the school at 6am. It's still dark at that time of the morning here in Texas, in case you don't get up that early. Man that's early for me to already be at the school. My body was in shock!

Anyhoo, we walked the track for 3 laps and then hit the circuit. Am I sounding like a true weight lifter, or what?! M, who has volunteered her fitness expertise, showed me the machines I need to start out on today. I only did 15 reps on each machine working my arms, back, legs, and abs. The leg machines weren't too hard for me but the arms, well, lets just say I'm a real weakling. It felt good though and I'm sooooo glad I got my carcass out of bed and DID IT.

M will also start us on some calisthentics later in the week. I'm going to be sore, I know. But I need this and I'm so thankful for the opportunity.

Make it a great day and don't forget to drink your water.


  1. You do sound like a true lifter, and you are! You were there right? Awesome job!

  2. What a great post title!

    Doesn't it feel good to do the weights? I bet your whole day will feel good now.


    Just think of how proud your son is of you Tena, watching his mom make all these positive changes!
    and hitting the weights ... I bet he's bursting with pride :D

    As they say ... YOU GO GIRL!

  3. What a terrific way to start a new school year!

  4. Way to go. Yep, you'll be a little sore later this week, but it will be one of those kinds of sore that makes you feel good.

  5. You are made out of pure awesome! WTG!

  6. Man are you gonna be sore!! I'm just kidding. ;-) I am in awe of your dedication but that is too early for anything but coffee.

  7. Awesome! Stretching after the workout will help A LOT with the soreness.

  8. I got a hot tip from Karen at Fitcetera about you! so I had to check your blog out and I like it.

    Great job getting your workout done early! I'm usually out at 6 and you're right, it's dark out there!

    I'll be lurking!

  9. Can I take you with me through the day so you can keep reminding me of that? DONT FORGET TO DRINK YOUR WATER>>> so easy to say, now if i can just

  10. Hi Tena,
    Hope the second day pain isn't too bad. I always found the second day after a lifting session the worst. I LOVE weights. It was the best part of the gym for me when I was going. I hope you come to love it too. I found it so rewarding.
    I ate my way through my weekend trip! Bah! No losses this weight in. Lesson learned.
    Hope you are happy and well.

  11. Awesome on the working out...keep rockin' it girl! :)

  12. Way to go, Tena! Good for you!
