First Workout Recap

My first work out for the Muscle Building program! I actually started on Saturday, instead of Monday, so I was calling those workouts "Week 1.5"... :) Here is my journal entry from that one:

I don't have some of the equipment set up at home yet, so I had to substitute some of the movements for equivalent ones. My hubby is really good at figuring those out and he is super helpful and supportive. After being used to lifting heavy for sets of 5, it really did not seem like a lot of weight (I started with what I THOUGHT were pretty low weights) but, 4 sets of 15 reps relieved me of that misconception REALLY quickly. Though my arms were feeling pretty pasta-like, I still felt pretty good until SUNDAY...*cue sinister music*

Yep, pretty much sums it up...
I felt like an OLD lady...a SORE, old lady, and I had to have help dressing because my arms did not want to go over my head. I was thinking..."HOW am I going to train today?" But, I did it, and I even did Cardio on top of it! I will fill you in on that one next time.
