I finally found the gym yesterday! We’re house sitting for friends who live on one of the bases so, it was the gym here. No frills but everything you need and then some for a workout. And my arms and shoulders are feeling it today!
I did a pyramid set for the first exercises and then back to just 3 sets of 12 for the second superset…
8 lateral shoulder raises
8 front shoulder raises
8 bicep curls
15 tricep dips
20 squats (no weight… the “legs” changed every set because I was working in my physical therapy exercises)
20 leg raises on a “Roman Chair Machine”
12 lateral shoulder raises
15 tricep dips
20 leg raises
Finally, 20 of all of the above. As you increase reps, decrease the weight so you are doing your max weight for each number of reps.
12 Front Flys
12 Chest Press
12 Tricep pull-downs
Then I finished with alternating 20 weighted crunches (arms straight toward the ceiling) and 15 skull crushers for 3 sets.
Also, the hubby and I have been good about keeping healthy food in the house and making dinner fresh every night. Last night I went to check out one of the cheerleading teams on the island so he made a chicken with sauteed onions and brown rice. The night before I made apple spiced pork. To be fair, we have had a lot of baked goods in the house that people have sent and my self-control has been lacking with those since I’m home most days (so it’s a good thing I found that gym 😉 ).
And, just as a life in general update, we found somewhere to settle for the next few months until we know where we’re going next. We get the keys Saturday 🙂 I’m still trying to find a job/get a foot in the door at the hospital out here but so far, we’re making steady progress. I can’t complain about all the beaches though… it’s nice seeing the ocean every day.
