Join me as a try to feed my family lots of Raw and Superfood. I like to write about the edible garden, exercise, and learning to love my natural expression. I am a Family Practice Physician and believe there are alternatives approaches to feeling your best.
I missed my MC workout last Friday, but I did use the resort gym instead, improvising and trying new things. So I carried on with week three as scheduled.
These numbers are tedious if you don't know the program.
1 set of 5 reps at each weight listed. Squats and Bench I warm up and cool down with the bar.
102.5 (the 1.25 fractionated plate is getting tedious)
Row -- I made some modifications in the intervals because I don't have fractionated weights available for between 30 and 40
Felt good. Did a lot of stretching after.
45 -- making modification because I don't have 35 pound bar options.
45 52.5 the large text is the maximum weight for this week for each move
Tuesday I did power yoga. Thursday I did a spin class and likewise, gave put everything I had into it.
I expected to be sore all week. I wasn't. I felt "muscle awareness." but nothing uncomfortable.
It's the first time I ever did a bridge (getting my head off the ground). I couldn't even do that when I was a little girl. I was a klutz and the last one picked in gym. The boys have spotted me to get into an arch. One day this week, I didn't need them to get into the arch. Wondering if I could do it the next day... I shocked myself when I pushed myself right up. I guess that is a measure of progress.
Bench, Squat and Row, I will add on 1.25 fractionated plates each side next Friday.

I didn't know the full impact of my eating choices. I let my husband be in charge of our food. All he ever brought home was "take-out." I am so glad I found the strength and the resources to be in control. This photo is about 6 years ago. Three years ago, Sept, 2007, is when I started sugar-free... now I am doing Raw and also Beauty Profiling. There is always something new to look forward to when it comes to self improvement.
