Still chasing 3 year old grand daughter x 4 days.
5 hour each day.
Yahoo! I finally hit 10 miles last week with walking.
Only took the whole 7 days.
But am pretty proud that I could do it with broken foot.
Resistance bands 15 minutes x 4 times a day.
30 minutes of stretches.
30 minutes of chair yoga times 3 days.

Decided today would concentrate on strength training, my version anyhow.
Moved furniture in the living room.
Scooted, tugged on love seat.
Picked up full 2 drawer file cabinet.
Lifted it onto 4 wheel dolly to be moved.
Pulled, and tugged on dolly handle to move 2 drawer file cabinet.
Scooted, tugged several pieces of Oak end tables to get them moved into their new spots.
Moved the recliner.
Lifted the sewing cabinet to be moved to it's new spot.
Lifted Strawberry's chair, moved it to it's new spot.
All this moving of furniture to keep Strawberry and grand daughter from getting onto bay window.
I suspect I shall be stiff and sore tomorrow.
All that twisting,turning at the waist, lifting, tugging, pulling.
And still have 3 big pieces of furniture to move Wednesday evening or Thursday with my sons help.

Dealing with getting boxes out of a storage facility to save money. Imagine if this were food and ammo.
Yeah, anyway, so lifted stuff on Saturday, lifted stuff tonight.
Going to be moving other stuff around as part of my job, that will get my biceps and calves built back up.

So, I hired a trainer/strength coach. Hopefully she can teach me how to properly do some lifts I never learned when I was younger. We started with deadlifts this morning, 3 sets of stiff legged deadlifts, 3 sets of good mornings, and 2 of bent legged deadlifts. Also we're working the back of my shoulders because it's much weaker than the front. 3 sets of rear delt flyes, 3 sets of bent over rows, 3 sets of upright rows.

This afternoon, chest/shoulders/triceps regular workout:

Military press x4
Bench press 5x5
Shrugs x3
Skullcrushers x3
Triceps pushdown x2
Farmer's carry x3

Tomorrow we will be visiting my parents. I will take some weights along to do some pull lifts but since I did rows today it will be a short workout tomorrow...

My day didn't go as planned and I didn't get to the gym before I had to leave for Missouri. I brought the weights again, and just did a couple shoulder isolation exercises after I got to the hotel - lateral raises and front raises. But I was too pooped from the drive to do any more...

Still working out less due to my gf living with me...
But I also eat more salads and generally less.. so I am keeping the weight off that I recently lost.

Still down 15lbs from my late summer post corona weight.
