Workout and Word of the Day: #39

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

This is my 2nd week of going to the gym and I am enjoying it, but I have also been hit with pretty severe anxiety every time I get ready to go.  There were even a couple of times that I sat in the parking lot, a nervous wreck, and almost drove home.  Thankfully I was able to txt a friend and commit to going in.  This week has been no different, in fact, it almost feels like my nervousness has gone up.  Yesterday it was so intense that I decided to just hide out upstairs and do my workout there.

Today I was hoping to hide out again, but upstairs was already busy so I headed down to the free weights and made it a point to zone out (stretching and flailing my arms awkwardly between sets.)


  • 4 x 10 Single-Arm Dumbbell Row (on all 4’s) [20 lbs]

Super set: 3 x 10

  • Military Press (20 lbs)
  • Cross-body Single- arm Wide Row (20 lbs)

Super set: 3 x 10

  • Dumbbell Reverse Fly (10 lbs)
  • Rotating Bent Over Row (20 lbs)

Burn Out: 3 x 30

  • 10 Outward Bicep Curls (10 lbs)
  • 10 Forward Bicep Curls
  • 10 Hammer Bicep Curls

I was a sweaty mess, but I made it through!  After that I walked on the stairmaster for 35 minutes at Level 7.  It just about killed me, but I got through that one too!

    1. Awww thank you. I hope that I won’t always get so anxious and nervous. I will just keep stepping outside of my comfort zone and hopefully it will pay off soon 🙂
