Dear Blog Journal,
Today was a good day! Not only did I enjoy today's workout at the gym but I also tried some new things that I hadn't tried before...namely push presses with a real push press bar! I pressed approximately 60 lbs and impressed not only myself but those around me that were witnessing it for the first time. Very cool! Nathan also set me up for throwing down the bar so that I can get comfortable with that. OY! That just made me feel plain stupid. ROFL I think I tossed it down like a sissy! I was scared to do it and scared that it was going to make a loud bang...UGH! But oh well, it's over and done with now and hopefully I won't have to use that technique very often. ;) I wonder what's in store for us tomorrow. Hopefully something as fun as today's workout. *fingers are crossed*
