Goals for Barb

Post  Barb on Sat Nov 21, 2009 6:28 pm

I am working on doing real pushups (not on my knees) So far I am up to 6. I can also hold my weight on my arms for 10 seconds. My long-term goal is to do a pullup someday without the band.

Uh-oh

I think I'm going backward. This week I could only do 4 real pushups at a time. I'll keep trying. Goal for this week is to get back to 6.

I'm back up to 6 pushups, but my diet has gone to Hell, I"ll have to follow Emily and Diane's example.

Barb, you'll be fine, once I switched to Paleo, I was great! However, I just had two glasses of wine and some burger king, tomorrow will not be fun and I feel a bit sick already. See you during the week Smile And let me know if you need any advice! And great job on the push ups!!

Thanks, Dianna, for the encouragement. This week has been a total loss. spending time with my grandchildren and my daughter,
I;m working on New Year's resolutions. Get back on the paleo diet and stop smoking. My son stopped smoking with electronic cigarettes. Since I have repeatedly failed other methods, maybe I'll try this.

Well, of course! Family is important.. and the food for the soul.. trust me, I will be having some tomorrow, and most likely not working out either Smile And as for the smoking, I quit recently as well, found the electronic cigarettes to help.. I have two if you're looking to purchase one. I've barely used them and just looking to get the one set off my hands now that I don't use them anymore. Let me know if you're interested!

Quitting smoking

Post  Barb on Sun Dec 27, 2009 10:38 pm

Dianna. I'd love to buy an electronic cigarette from you. We just have to figure out when we'll both be at the gym. My schedule changes from week to week around my work schedule. This week I'll be there 8 am on Mon and Tuesday, 3 pm Thursday, and probably for the Saturday class.

More pushups!

Post  Barb on Mon Dec 28, 2009 10:49 pm

Today I did a set of 10 pushups without a break. Then I got up to 6 in a second set. It's coming along.

Good job on the push ups!!

I have two sets, one with two batteries, and one with one (the cigarette tips). Whichever set you would like let me know. I paid just over 200 for the set of two, and 160 for the one, but these came with the cartridges. I used most of them, so obviously, I wouldn't be looking to sell these for anything unreasonable. I just have no use for them anymore. I gather around 100 for one or 130 for the set of two.. having two ensures you always have a battery ready and charged. I also bought a case and can just give that to you. I believe I have one more set of cartridges as well.

I will be in on Thursday my normal time (2pm) unless there is a holiday schedule because of NYE or definitely on Saturday.

I know they're expensive, but this is just an idea of what I paid, I'd like to keep the one just to have and will cut you a deal on the two Smile Talk to your son and see what he paid.. I ended up with the extra because I thought I lost it, but ended up finding it anyways.

Keep up the good work Smile

My accomplishment for this week was supporting my body weight for 13 seconds.
Still working on the pushups.
Will be at my daughter's in PA for 2 weeks, but plan to workout at her gym. It's not a Crossfot gym, but you take what you can get. I will have my first experience with Les Mills Body Pump tomorrow.

I forgot to warm up before doing pull ups and push ups. Now I have really sore shoulders and biceps. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. I did do 3 sets of 5 pushups and one of 4,

I broke my PR by deadlifting 210 pounds. I really appreciated everyone's feedback and support.
I also did my first ring pushup (sort of). Smile
