GRATITUDE – DAY 16: ANKLE WEIGHTS
Have you done your exercises today?
Have you made New Year’s Resolutions regarding your fitness?
Do you have a plan?
Don’t smack me when I tell you I can answer all those with a resolute “YES.”
Now, I know we haven’t even left January, and talk to me in June, it might be a whole different story but for now I’m committed. I am working on building muscle, preventing bone loss, tightening a few areas, and improving my energy because bless my soul, I am aging. And you wanna know the new anti aging pill? It’s strength training!
So……. I have plenty of free weights and exercise videos, but the one thing that I haven’t had is a good set of ankle weights. After a little looking on the web, and reading some Dr.’s advice, I have a brand new set here at home!
These are serious ankle weights, none of that sissy stuff. And when I say “serious” I mean they are 20 lbs EACH! (Adjustable thank heavens!!) You don’t mess with these babies, and start off small. I’m only using 5 lbs on each leg right now, but I can see that I will probably up that a pound by next week.
Ohhh my little glutes and thighs are in for it!!!
Today I am so grateful for a body that functions like it should, and one that I can challenge and take good care of, so that I can carry out my duties and responsibilities as a mother.
