My Journey: The Best Thing About Monday

It is no secret that Monday is one of the most hated days of the week. It is the unfriendly reminder that the work week is about to start and the joys of the weekend are a thing of the past. That is unless you start your week off with a brutal workout. It is a great feeling to start the week off right. For me, that means starting with a good workout.

Today, I took a little different approach for my chest/triceps workout. There were two reasons for this. First of all, my chest and shoulders are really sore from the weekend's wakeboarding sessions. Second of all, I am not seeing the results from my chest workout that I would like to see. So I used this week to prime my chest with a couple different machines and I will spend a little bit of time this week devising a new plan for Mondays. With that being said, I had a really good workout.

After weighing in at 270 lbs. last Friday, the goal will be 268 lbs. by this Friday. Two pounds is the absolute max.

I am stepping up my cardio this week, and each week it will increase. Today, I did a 30 minute run/walk workout after weight training and it was one of my best cardio sessions of the year. I walked one minute and ran two for 30 minutes. I am building my cardio stamina up, because I am definitely out of shape when it comes to jogging.
