Really struggling with workouts now. I had a good strength workout Friday but have not worked out yesterday or today. I just feel no motivation and no energy to do anything productive. But I know from experience, once you stop you don't want to start again...

Now I am near the end of week 3 of my (admittedly mild) new exercise regimen.
I already feel more agile.

I have been slacking. Motivation has been a real problem. I worked out once with resistance bands during my 8 day work schedule and that's it. But today I'm home and tried something a little different...

Legs -

Standard deadlift - pyramid to my max comfortable weight, that I'm not worried about compromising good form. Then, 3x10 at 65% of max. I could have probably pulled a little more but I'm kind of a beginner at regular deadlifts so I backed off.

Then, leg press 2x8 and leg extensions 2x8

Upper body tomorrow. We'll see about getting a bike ride tonight. My legs might not want to pedal the bike after deadlifting this morning...

Does throwing I don't know how many bags of mulch around count? I'm about whooped. (I know it's not real exercising)
Actually I would call that exercise. I used to have to do things like swinging a sledgehammer all day. That was just as hard as "exercise" and would get my heart rate just as high or even higher.

Dumbbell shoulder press x4
2 sets each of dumbbell curls, hammer curls, and concentration curls
Lateral delt raises x3
Rear delt flyes x3
Overhead tricep extension x3

7.25 miles on the exercise bike in 31:26. Nothing extremely strenuous but hard enough to work up a little sweat. According to the bike computer, should have burned about 230 calories...

Did my measly number of sit-ups. I need to get back at it. I was doing well for a short time then plllbbtt when I pulled something. Think I will do measly number for some time and up very gradually. Better to do a few than none.

Building up steps.
Started doing 5- 15 minutes brisk walks in the early morning before humidity wipes me out about noon.
Normally do 3 - 15 minutes brisk walks in the morning.
Then 1 in the evening.
Then the last about 2 hours before bed.
Every other day I do Zumba workout.
Then the other days do stretching, leg lifts,squats, weight training.
