Daily Workout - Shoulders at Home Gym


Just catching up on my posts here. I did a Shoulders workout a few days ago but didn't have time to post it. And then the next day I had a little visit with my dentist to get two of my Wisdom teeth pulled. What fun that is, especially when my back lower teeth do not like to totally freeze. The dentist did a good job of numbing me up most of the way but I could still feel it :( And I get to go back in a few weeks to hit the other side of my mouth. The only good news about that is that I already had one of them pulled several years ago and all I have left to do is the top one which if you're a dentist, then you know it's the easier of the two wisdom teeth to pull.

I said all that because I had strict instructions from my dentist to not workout for a few days or I could start my gums bleeding again. I really haven't had much pain and I was expecting some because my dentist had to drill some of my jaw away to get the bottom wisdom tooth out. He said I have a jaw made out of steel :)


Daily Workout - Shoulders and Arms with Total Gym

OK, it's official, I'm back on a roll and feeling good again. I still need to regain some strength and as I found out today "my Cardio". I have been putting off the Cardio for a while during December, no time and poor health has made it hard. Today I did a quick 10 minutes and man was I tired! Granted I pack in about 200 calories burned in the short 10 minutes.

Today I got a good Shoulders and Arms workout in and even did some Stretching and Cardio!

    Daily Workout - When it gets Busy

    It's that time of year again when things get so busy, with all the  shopping, kids events, social gatherings and who knows what else. And then there is all the food and drink and lack of exercise...

    Don't get too worried about it because January 1st is almost here too so what ever bad stuff you do now you can fix then. But just remember the worse you are now the better you are going to have to be in the new year :)

    I try to do what I can and remember all the hard work I have been doing all year long. But, I still like to enjoy all the fun this time of year brings, and it's hard to do if you can't eat anything or don't have time cause you're in the gym all the time.

    Over the last 4 days I did manage to get into the Gym a couple of times and did some Total Gym routines covering my Cardio, Shoulders, Arms and Abs. And I may even just get another one in today?!
