Saturday I broke out my weights and did my first weight training session in months.  When I finished my legs were like jello and my arms noodles, but I felt pretty good. I actually forgot how good it feels to lift. Not so great the rest of the week though, the DOMs left me like
I didn't stop feeling sore until Thursday, and then did it again Friday morning. I'm thinking Friday should be my strength training day as I'll have the weekend to recover.  

November Goals:
Start tracking calories using LoseIt! : 7/7 I managed to log everyday this week
One day a week of dedicated strength training: 2/7 I guess technically the Saturdays work out could count for last week, but my weeks have been running from Sat to Friday.
The step goal is on hold until I get a new activity tracker
Here's what I did this week...

11/5/16: Weightlifting 45 mins
11/6/16: ran 2.12 miles in 16:04 mins 
Yoga 21:14 mins
11/7/16: Rest
11/8/16:  Yoga 25 min
11/9/16: ran 2.45 miles in 18:37 mins 
11/10/16: rest
11/11/16: Weightlifting 30 min


  1. Oh that feeling... for me, I think the worst is two days after a workout. I haven't done any type of strength training in years. I need to add some in... I have also been skipping out on yoga. NOT GOOD!

    1. This week the worst was day 3, I didn't even want to get out of bed. I think that was part of the problem, since I hadn't done anything but body weight strength training in several months. I'm hoping I can keep my momentum and maybe do more than one day a week soon. Good luck on getting back into your own strength training, I know it's hard but it's worth it.
