Back to the Y!

This week, I decided that it was time to get back into the swing of things by working out again! Tyler has football workouts in the mornings, so Im already out, might as well make use of the gas Im wasting! I kill 2 birds with one stone this way.. I decided that Todd should get a head start on his football workouts too.. We start off by doing 45 minutes on a cardio machine called the "Arc Trainer".. It looks a little like "The Gazelle".. That thing wears you out! I burned 550 calories in 45 minutes! Then after we do that, we work out our abs and then stretch.. Today, Todd wanted to work on his leg strength, so I had him do the leg press machine.. Back in my "Body For Life" workout days, I could leg press 600 pounds, 3 reps.. My hubby finds that impressive, yet weird.. lol.. Today, Todd leg pressed 210 pounds..He did 5 reps! I was impressed.. lol He wanted me to email is football coach and tell him.. lol

LOL Leigh- Steve thinks it is strange that I could leg press that much back then..I leg pressed 210 10 reps that day that Todd did it.. I am alot more careful now.. I think the leg pressing the huge amount of weight is one reason myh lower back is out of whack.. But it is fun to tell people that.. hehe
