On the 9th Day of Christmas Fitness My true love gave to me: Weight Session
50 minutes weight session-
over and over and over again- :) Hurt so Good
65lbs Weight Bench - 3 sets- felt good the last 2 sets toward the end of the reps of 10 I was feeling the push- I realize how weak I am in this new endeavor- I'm eager to one day bench my weight - Really? Maybe I should tag this post! lol
My arms were so dead today after the weight session -
Tips: Want to Bench but need a spotter? Try to see if your Gym has a machine where you can bench without a spotter- the machine I use is on a pulley system with a spring at the bottom so that if your drop the weights or can't push back up it lands on the springs and not you! I like that!
Keen to throw a bit more weights on my Row and pulldown today- till about the 8th Rep in I realize I couldn't pull it down anymore- lol - not ready yet for a climb in weights on some exercises yet.

Recovery: ****** resisted the holiday food buffet at the gym today- stocked with JUNK- YEP! My twins had a grand time snacking away - I behaved* Then we went to the Library for Story time where I was offered cookies again- nope- I didn't take them or even think about it ;)
