Day 274

I went back to Lunchtime Lifts today, and while I am still not sure I could win in a fight against a first grader, I feel confident that I could win against the version of myself that existed a week ago. I'm still using the lightest bar and being very careful not to up my weight too quickly. Even with the lightest bar, I only made it through 2.75 of the 4 sets of chest presses we were supposed to do, but that's okay! I can be really competitive at times, but for some reason, weight lifting does not seem to spark that in me. (That's probably a good thing.)

Perhaps the biggest victory of going back to Lunchtime Lifts was that I didn't fall off of any platforms today! It helped that we were not doing steps onto any platforms, but I am taking the wins where I can find them. As Jennie and I discussed after class, actually lifting weights helps us get better at lifting weights. Also, progress is progress.

Something that made today great: I got so many steps in today (over 18,000!)
Time I woke up: 5:45 am
