Gym Diary: Thursday, January 3, 2013

     Ok!  This was my first workout session of 2013.

     Before going to gym, I watched some videos about doing dead lifts.  I want to improve my form and, hopefully, enjoy benefits from them. 


     Sometimes I use that yellow ball when doing crunches.  Sometimes, I place my butt on the ball.  Sometimes, I lie on the mat and place my calves on the ball. 



      Pull ups are the most difficult exercise for me.

Hmmm!  Purple!
While in the USA, I visit a K-Mart.  
They had tank top shirts on sale.

      Ok!  I think I didn't do much damage over the holidays!




     Don't forget that I walk about a mile to the gym and, of course, about a mile to return home.  On this day, there were ice patches all along the way.
