Classes tonight were really good. I normally do a different triceps exercise when everyone else is doing dips on the side of the bench. Tonight, I decided to give it a try. I only made it through 5 dips, and then my arms gave out. But, it was better than I thought I could do. Of course, when my arms gave out, I landed right on top of a 15 pound weight. I should have an interesting bruise tomorrow! But, I am so proud of myself for trying, and being able to do some. Of course, for the second set, I went back to overhead triceps dips.
Yoga was good, too. I had to make modifications to some of the poses, and I couldn’t hold down dog as long as everyone else, but I am definitely making progress. It feels so good to be able to do more and more every class.
The challenge of the day was remembering to make the shake before I left for the gym. I had planned it all out last week, even making sure we had almond milk in the refrigerator. But, I was so excited to get out of the house, I almost forgot. But, I remembered and I really benefitted from it.The surprise of the day was definitely being able to do the triceps dips. Even though I couldn’t do as many as everyone else, I was still so proud of myself for being able to do any. I really, really love that I am getting stronger every week. And, I am sure that my muscles got a great workout tonight, and will be very thankful to have a rest day tomorrow!
