Archives For Stuff I Love.

I completed my first (in a very long time) weight-lifting workout today.  I incorporated swiss ball into the workout.  It was simple and not to complex, but it did get me sweating.  Here’s what I did:

      1. Squat press-ups with 2-5lbs weights.
      2. Chest press on the ball 2-5lbs weights.
      3. Overhead press sitting on the ball 2-5lbs weights.
      4. Press extensions, forward on the ball 2-5lbs weights.
      5. Russian twist on the ball.
      6. Push ups on the ball.
      7. Split squats.
      8. Back extensions on the ball, superman style (one set only).

I did three sets of each movement 8-12 times.  It did feel good to complete these movements.  It has been over two years since I did any weight lifting.  Boy did my body feel ALL of that missed time.  I proud of myself for working through it by myself.  I workout better with someone pushing me.  Off to bed.  Here I go now…

Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale.

If anyone is looking for a really good scale, I would highly recommend the Aria by Fitbit.  Not only does it accurately measure your BMI, it sends all your information to your computer (e.g., you personal tracking page on Fitbit.com) via WiFi.  There are sooooo many goodies including a smartphone app for iPhone and Android.  It’s a scale that I love…wait…did I just write that???
