    Erin's Starting Over

    After about a 5 year break, I'm going to try again to keep a journal and regain some accountability. I started journaling here in 2008 or so and reached the best shape of my life, but then had some game changing injuries which caused me to take a break.

    Fitness summary:

    - played sports most of my life
    - started working out in 2007-2008 and have worked out in some form ever since
    - lost 40+ pounds and competed in 2009
    - started tae kwon do with my kids for the cardio aspect (I hate cardio)
    - herniated a disc in 2012 that left me with permanent nerve damage in one leg
    - severely sprained an ankle in 2015, partially caused by the nerve damage and overcompensating
    - ended my TKD "career" just before black belt testing because of that
    - became a Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher in 2016 as an attempt to get over a divorce (love it!)
    - found a gym that specializes in sports performance and movement training that I went to with both of my kids at different points
    - yoga and movement training has me moving like a 60 year old instead of a 90 year old

    I haven't been as consistent as I would like over the past few years. Mostly time related. I have a demanding career, I'm a single mom, pre-Covid I was teaching 1-2 yoga classes a week, and I've been pursuing my MBA. But now my oldest is wrapping up his Junior year in college, my youngest his sophomore year in high school and I graduate next month. Plus while I may be in somewhat decent shape fitness wise, I am not where I want to be and my weight has crept back up to its highest.

    So, I had left my one gym less than a month ago as their schedule no longer fit mine (it's a sign up process and it's small, so shorter hours) and stocked up the home gym a little. This week I joined back to the commercial gym where my boyfriend goes hoping he will keep me consistent with the workouts. I do IF, but need to do better tracking nutrition. And I need to do better with cardio, which shouldn't be hard as I splurged on an elliptical last year right after things locked down here.

    For this week:

    Monday:
    Bench - 10x45 w/u, 10x65 w/u, 8x85, 2x6x85
    Cable tricep extension - 3x10x30
    Cable chest press hi setting - 8x25, 8x30, 8x35
    Cable chest press lo setting - 8x25x3
    OH tricep rope extension - 8x22.5, 2x8x25
    Decline sit-up - 3x16

    Tuesday:
    Kroc row - 3x8x30
    Alternating DB row - 3x17.5x8
    Machine assisted wide grip pullup - 6, 4, 4 with 85 lb assist
    Hammer strength curl - 2x8x20, 6x20

    Nothing yesterday.

    Weekend update.

    Saturday
    DB OH Press - 17.5x8x3
    Bent over lat raise - 12.5x8x3
    Plank - 1 minx3
    Lat raise - 10x8x3
    Figure 8's - 16x3

    Sunday
    Heels elevated goblet squat - 35x8x3
    DB RDL - 30x8x3
    Sumo squat - 35x8x3
    1-legged RDL - 20x8x3 ea leg
    Leg extension - 90x8x3 PWO
    HS kneeling leg curl - 20x8x3 ea leg

    It's been a while since I've done traditional workouts without a trainer created plan, so I struggled a little bit trying to come up with stuff on the fly. I'll need to come prepared with a plan until I get back into the swing of winging it.

    Also will be changing the order up a bit this week. Last week was an experiment to see what days worked best. Unfortunately it is Sat - Tues to actually get to the gym. Weds - Fri I'll do some HIIT from my basement. Also need to get started on the cardio. And finally, yoga. I graduate in May and want to hit the ground running with online classes to restart up my business and I need to get back into the flow of that. I've tried to get my boyfriend to do it with me, but other than some back exercises when it is bothering him I haven't had any luck.

    Just scheduled a beach vacation, so the pressure is on to lose some weight before June. I am doing 16-8 IF, though I usually push through and do 17-18 hours fasting and 6-7 eating. I used to just eat whatever during that period since I effectively skip a meal this way, but I am cracking down and trying to stick to no snacks.

    Hi Erin. Great work going on in here. Looks like you have done a great job overcoming those injuries and its nice to see you doing well coming up with stuff without a trainer. Nice looking whole body sessions. That's funny about your boyfriend only doing yoga when his back hurts. That's usually the only time I do it too. I wish I had more time to fit that in but lifting/conditioning (aka screwing it up) always come first... Keep up the good work!
