I love training, it always makes me feel better! After feeling so stressed earlier in the week, I had a cracker of a leg session on Wednesday morning, even incorporated some "21's" into my squats, and came home floating on cloud nine!! I was feeling so much better that I have decided that exercise is definetely the best medicine for me. My mood improves, I start the day with a spring in my step, and if I get it done bright and early, then theres ONE less thing to think about at the moment!! LOL!
I'd never done "21's" on legs before, I've only ever done it with barbell bicep curls - but it got my heart rate up to 165bpm! Basically you do 21 reps - 7 reps from the start point to midway, 7 reps from the midway point to the bottom, then 7 reps of the full range of movement. All of that equals ONE set!! I did 3 sets of barbell squats... ooooh that middle 7 is the KILLER - can you feel the burn???? Love it!
My legs are sore today, but I'm not crippled. More 21's tomorrow on bicep curls! Yippeee! I've just thrown these in this week for a change, make it a little more interesting.
Anyway, I've got my 'moving/selling house' list together so I can stop stressing... hopefully. Actually my list is a book. I keep thinking of stuff to do, so I'm carrying the book with me everywhere, and when I think of stuff, well, into the book it goes. I'm slowly crossing things off the list too - got the mail redirected today, cross that one off. Seems to be working - each night I seem to be getting one more hour's sleep than the night before. So on Monday night I got 4 hours, Tuesday was 5 hours, last night was 6 hours - so I'm looking forward to a big 7 hours tonight!! Woohoo! heheheh
Weekend will be busy - we've got a surprise birthday dinner to go to on Friday night, Saturday I'm hoping to get my hair trimmed, cleaning, groceries etc then packing boxes, then we're having some friends over for a BBQ as a sort of a "house cooling" party (ie the opposite of a house warming), Sunday will probably be moving boxes - and Monday - well that's my Ekka public holiday - so I'll probably spend it packing and moving boxes!! Yay for me.
Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday, and a wonderful weekend!
