August 13 - Went to the gym with Jane. 30 minutes walking on treadmill.

August 16 - Baaaad time at the gym. Attempted leg weights, my knee popped out and I fell on my ass in front of everyone in the weight room. Needless to say, I was horrified so I ended my workout and left.


As I know from experience, if you fall off the horse and don't get back on- you may never get on again. So I faced my fear and went back to the gym. I even saw many of the same people who witnessed my ungraceful tumble. Oh well. I turned my music up a little louder and focussed on the task at hand.

Bench press: 3 x 10 @ 40 lbs (bar only, no added weight)
Dumbell bench press (on incline bench): 3 x 10 @ 20 lbs
Lying dumbell flyes: 3 x 10 @ 20 lbs

Legs (this was more like physiotherapy for my knee..)
Leg extensions (lever): 3 x 12 @ 15 lbs
Seated leg press (sled): 3 x 10 @ 50 lbs

Leg lifts off decline: 3 x 12
Crunches on ball (side, front, side): 4 x 15
Scissors (3 counts up, 3 counts down): 3 x 5

Cardio: 10 minutes bike

I will get more cardio later as Chris and I are going for a walk on the beach <3

Bria, I am not sure if I told you this story or not..

So last year during a thunderstorm I went to the AFC, it was dark so it must have been after 8pm.

So I was using the circuit equipment when all of a sudden the lights went out and the place went PITCH BLACK! I was like WTF?? So I tried to make my way to the door and I fell over the stairs in the middle of the circuit area and screamed! One guy half caught me, and two others picked me up! I was so embarassed!

The lights came back on and I left as quickly as possible. I got home and my legs were bleeding and covered in bruises!

Talk about embarassing! I totally feel your pain! lol

Wow, I don't think you ever told me that. I'm glad it seems I'm not the only one whose done this. That sucks that you got hurt though. :(
