Day 1 8/25/14

Making it work!
Day 1 workout:
Upper body circuit
Incline DB Press: 20 x 10 x 5
Shoulder Press: 10 x 10 x 5
Bent DB Lat Row 20 x 10 x 5
Bicep curls 10 x 10 x 5
Overhead triceps ext 20 x 10 x 5

All in all a good workout.  Been a while since I lifted plus in the early morning, so in addition to watching for body re-composition I will also look for strength gains to celebrate progress.

The workout scheme above is pounds x reps x sets.  I do all 5 exercises then take 2 minute rest and go through it again.

So, I'm not out in my garage throwing around heavy iron like I like to do, but I have to be realistic and get this done anyway that I can and for now this seems to be the way to go!

Food for the day was a little interesting.  I definitely got the gallon of water in, and I totally resisted all the pastries and bagels and eggs and bacon and hashbrowns my school provided for our first day back!  But since I worked from 7:45 to 4 at school and then had to be at my tutoring job at 5 until 8, when I got home I just made a huge salad and then had a scoop of peanut butter.  Not great, but I don't think I'm going to be so detailed on my nutrition yet.  As long as I'm making mostly good choices.

I am exhausted, and I hope that I can get up tomorrow to do cardio!
