there is no reason why you should not be able to work out a couple of times a week.
I am tired of excuses ... I am tired of "I'll start working out on Monday." I am tired of not doing any strength training and only fitting in 1 or 2 days of running a week.
Today while watching the Tampa Bay Bucs game I busted out my pair of 5 pound weights. When Ryan starts working out again after a long hiatus he always starts with chest ... me, I start with shoulders. I have no idea why but it is always my go-to muscle group.
I completed 3 sets of 12 reps each of:
- overhead shoulder press (military press)
- front lateral raises
- side lateral raises
Time to figure out a tentative exercise schedule for this week. Since I haven't run since Wednesday, I would like to get at least 3 runs in this week. I would also like to do biceps, triceps, legs, and more abdominal work.
It'll be interesting to find exercises that do not cause my wrist discomfort ... like for triceps I will try to do push-ups but will have to do wall push-ups instead of normal on the floor push-ups.

Fingers crossed that I actually accomplish this small goal to remain active all week long.
