Weights Workout

Since I am a little restricted on what I can do, I had John put together an upper body weight workout.  It's basically all shoulders and back, no core, and emphasizes lifts that work multiple muscles at the same time.  Here's what John put together:

Back (3 sets, 12 reps)
  • Wide grip seated cable rows
  • Underhand cable pull down
  • Single arm dumbbell row to triceps kickback
Shoulders (3 sets, 12 reps)
  • Dumbbell military press
  • Dumbbell front raise to T
  • Dumbbell upright row
All of the dumbbell lifts I used 10-15lb dumbbells.  The pull downs and cable rows I used 50 lb.  I also have been doing squats and lunges, both of which are highly recommended for pregnant women.  Even though I was using light weights, I was still a little sore the next few days.  I'm trying to work  lifting in once a week between biking, running, swimming, and yoga.

And in Peanut news, I think I felt him/her move today!  Or it was just gas, I can't really tell.  But anytime soon, I should be able to feel the little bugger moving around.


3 Years

It was three years ago today that I lost a friend and mentor.  It was three years ago today a wife lost her husband, a little girl lost her daddy, and a community lost a pillar.  In three years, the space he left hasn't grown smaller, the impact he had hasn't grown dull and the memories he created haven't started to fade.

I still miss you, Polk.  I hope I made you proud.  I hope you know how much you meant to me.

You were one of the good ones.
