Tonight's workout

Tonight we did our first workout. We did bench presses, straight curls, wrist curls, and bent over dumbbell rows. We started with 10 minutes of cardio and after doing 3 sets of 10 on each lift, we did 10 more minutes of cardio.

It might not sound like much, but it was a good start. We'll see how sore I am in a couple of days.

Tomorrow night we'll work on legs (squats, lunges, leg extensions, and calf raises) and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be rest days.

I made Pres Man take my "before" picture and OMG it's so awful. I am really hopeful that someday I will be far enough away from that person that I will be proud to show it off next to my current shape.

I also measured my upper arms, forearms, thighs, calves, waist, hips, neck, chest, and bust. So now I'll have a record of where I started. The recommendation I'm seeing is to measure yourself once a week on a rest day (the same one every week).

I'm really pleased with us. I had a good time (Really! Which surprised me somewhat) and I feel optimistic about making this a permanent part of our lives.
