I can’t say goodbye summer because summer doesn’t actually end until September 23rd.

After a frustrating final walk with Mr. Banks and a good belly rub, I headed home to meet up with my mom.

She spent the day hemming more of my pants (wow it’s like I have a whole new wardrobe) while I tidied my spare room so we could actually get into it. The room is only partially done, but even that made me happier. And yes I know how to hem pants, but my mom does a way better job of it and I prefer to quilt.

Knitting:

I finished the yoke on my test knit- Not a Boring Sweater! I’m so happy I got the yoke done before school started. Now I can do stockinette in the round forever more when I get home at night.

Exercise:

I finally got back to weights after a month away from them. It was sad to see how much strength I’ve lost😢. I also didn’t want to push too hard as I’ve definitely noticed that I don’t recover well right now and seem to stay sore for a long time. Another thing to ask the doctor about, I guess.

I did 3 sets of 12 reps of the following:

Shoulder press- 7 lbs

Front raises- 4 lbs

Overhead tricep extension- 7 lbs

Bicep curls- 5 lbs

Bent over rows- 7 lbs

Flies- 5lbs

Chest press – 7lbs

Dead bugs-2lbs

Stability ball sit ups

Deadlift- 7lbs

Squats- 7lbs

Inner thigh squeeze with stability ball

Well my lunch is ready for tomorrow as our my clothes, so I guess all I have to do now is go to bed.

Have fun!

  1. I can totally understand your feeling bout lifting, we took a while off lifting too and got back into it yesterday. I’m struggling to lift less than I was when we were doing it on a regular basis, but the important thing is to get back into the habit… and the strength will come back quicker this time.

    hope your first day goes smoothly for you

    1. I’m not sore today so I’m thinking I can up the weight a bit the next time i do it. It’s just tough when you feel like you’ve gone backwards
