WORK IT OUT

So today I got up early and went to the gym for the first time this year. Yep you heard right. This year. I know. I just have no patience for the gym usually and I feel so stupid walking around and staring at the machines that I don't know how to use. Like the machines that you have to pull the little thing out to adjust the seat. I usually can't pull those out and push/pull the seat at the same time. Awkward. And weak. Nice.

But, I've been dying to gain muscle and firm up, so today was the day I got my little butt out of bed at 6:00 6:45 and went to the gym.

I did a lot of research online before I went this time though. I'm a retard when it comes to gym machines and I wanted to have a game plan going into the gym so it looked like I semi-knew what I was doing.
Here's my work out from today:
Seated dumbbell shoulder press: 3 sets, 11 reps per set 10lb dumbells
Machine leg press: 3 sets, 10 reps per set 80lbs
Incline bench press with barbell: 3 sets, 10 reps per set 25lbs
One Arm Cable Row: couldn't find the one hand attachment so I did a two arm cable row: 3 sets, 10 reps per set 30lbs
Pull Down Cable Bar: 3 sets, 11 reps per set 50lbs
Barbell Reverse Lunge: HOLY sheet. This kicked my ass. 3 sets, 15 reps per set 20lb barbell
Dumbbell Sumo Deadlift: Umm I used a 20lb kettle bell because it looked cooler than the dumbbells. These literally turned my legs to mush. 3 sets, 11 reps per set.

I pretty much YouTube'd every one of these exercises before I went to the gym this morning. I wanted to make sure I knew what it was suppossed to look like before I went in there and looked like a fool. Fool. This worked my upper and lower body, but I felt I didn't attack my core enough. And my core is what I really want to work on, so tomorrow I'm going to do more core exercises and situps.

It was good BUT I could barely walk down the stairs after. I think I did too much today. Overachiever.

Oh and this is what I wore today to work:
Top: Kirra from Marshalls, Pants: Blue Spice from Marshalls, Tank: Random one size fits all from Ross, Shoes: G by Guess from Marshalls, Watch: Fossil. Brady dog and his new short haircut, so ka-ute!
