Rest Day, Day 4, and Day 5

Been a few days, but I have still been going at it. Sunday's are my rest day, then yesterday I did a weight training workout:
Dumbell chest press
dumbell flys
modified pull-ups (c'mon, like I can do real ones!)
bentover rows
plank on bosu ball
squats on bosu ball
mountain climbers
dead lifts on bosu ball with a barbell

Then today I did:
Walk 8 minutes,
Next 10 minutes alternate running 1 minute and walking 1 minute,
Walk 2 minutes, stretch.
I almost didn't go today, I was dragging my feet after I got up. I hung out with Derek, and by then it was 4:30 and I have to leave at 6:30 for work. I usually reserve the 3-4 hour for working out on my work days, and when that passed I started with the excuses... Don't have time, don't want to, I'll just do some squats and sit-ups here... BUT I'm trying to follow the program to a T, so I finally got my shoes on and left. Anyway, glad I did. Aren't we always glad we do? If only you can bottle up the "Done" feeling and take it before we go, is sure would make working out a whole lot easier.
As an aside, it is a GORGEOUS day today!

good job shavs!!! It is hard to get up and going, and more so with your schedule, now you are making us all look bad haha lol just kidding. I agree though that we do always feel better once we are done, and glad and for me proud of going. Keep it up, you can do this. Hey we should do Bloomsday together!!! call me or text me if you want to. It will give me something to work towards for sure.

Once I get to the gym I'm good. It's the talking myself into going that's more painful. ;)

Keep it up!
