The return of weights

Today is a cold and gray day in Charlotte.  Not sure how we can go from 80 degree weather to 39 degree weather in literally the span of 2 days.  Since the high today seems to peak at 55 degrees I've decided to skip my daily walk (or newly instilled jog) and instead start on some weight training. 

It seems that whenever I re-visit using free weights I always start with working out shoulders.  Today was no exception.

I grabbed my pair of 5 pound weights out of the closet and headed out to the dining room where Mason was momentarily sleeping.
go ahead and work out mom ... I won't be too much of a bother

the lone set of weights
I did 3 sets and 12 reps of the following:
- side lateral raises
- front lateral raises
- overhead press

I rounded off my quick exercise session (Mason had become fussy at this point) with 3 sets of 10 reps of modified (girl) push-ups.

Looking forward to better weather tomorrow to resume jogging around the neighborhood.
