Thursday, day 4 of week 10

Ok, so, tuesday went pretty good. I went to the gym after work to do my weight lifting. I have been writing down all the weight levels and sets and reps of everythin Ive been doing, so when I went tuesday I uped the weight levels for almost all of the exercises. I know Im only going 2 days a week but last week I didn't get that sore feeling that I was hoping for. So for example, I uped my bicep curls from 3 sets of 10 with 30lb dumbells to 3 sets of 7 with 35lb dumbells. And I uped my squat press from 3 sets of 20 with 3-45lb weights on each side to 3 sets of 20 with 3-45lb and 1 35lb weight on each side, so I added 70lbs to that exercise. Also when I do my benchpress with dumbells I went from doing 3 sets of 15 with 35lb dumbells to doing 3 sets of 10 with 40lb dumbells. One other example was I changed doing shoulder shrugs at 3 sets of 15 with 50lb dumbells to doing 3 sets of 10 with 70lb dumbells.

Those are just some examples of how I uped my weight levels, and it really worked good. I was a bit sore yesterday, especially in my quads, and it was nice. Its almost gone today, which is good cause I have to go back tonight. I didn't get to do any exercises at all yesterday with it being halloween and I got the day off, so I took a nice 2 hour nap midday and rested alot before taking my daughter out trick or treating. I will add a day of workout on maybe sunday to make up for it.

Pictures again on Monday, but dont hold your breath for too much impovement, see you guys!!

Wow almost week 11...can't wait to see the next pictures. 20lbs is a significant amount of weight you lost! How are you finding the extra weight lifting? Are you noticing any differences was a result of adding them? I hope you get at least one day off a week :).
How did your daughter like trick or treating?
