WOD – My return to the gym

I felt very good after work today and was in the mood to either run the trail or go to the gym. Being that the temperature dropped in the evening in comparison to the afternoon, I went with the option of going to the gym instead because since the start of my semester my visits have only been to pay my monthly bill, but that is about it. I entered the gym to encounter a new set up with new mirrors and a new decline bench where I could do my ab workouts on. Yass! No more creative workouts on the Lat pull down machine because now I have a legit bench that is made for it.

Since I have not been in the gym for a while, I did not expect much from myself, but luckily, I have been keeping up with little workouts like mountain climbers, push ups, and jumping jacks in my apartment to keep somewhat in shape during the semester. My workout consisted of:

  • 40 Push ups
  • 75 Jumping jacks
  • 60 Mountain climbers/ Cross climbers
  • 15 Pull ups
  • 20 Pound dumbbell curls 15 x each
  • 25 Jumping jacks
  • 30 Sit ups on decline bench w/ 14 Pound medicine ball
  • .50 Mile on treadmill – 154 heart rate & in support of USO
  • 40 Sit ups
  • .60 Mile on elliptical
  • 20 Push ups
  • 30 Crunches

I utilized music during both the treadmill run (AOC Obama featuring YM – Everyday) and the elliptical (The Weeknd, & Kendrick Lamar – Pray for me) workouts.

      • Really…..???!!!! You too…….???! I am very much too, and not just because of that…!!! YES!!! I completely agree!!!!!!! They are probably aware of the problem with tags but not allowing adding them that way but I see other users doing that too…..! I am very much pi**ed off at them and wrote them like 15 messages about waiting for days for approving posts, rejecting my virily themed posts, receiving different points every time I add photos in lists, etc etc etc!!!!!!! I’m so angry and seems they don’t even care I said I will leave the site!!!!!!! There is not that many new posts and still we are waiting for days…!
        1 member has a negative balance for months, i told that to admin and he said “thanks for letting us know” while they don’t answer to her at all and not doing anything about the problem so she appears here only occasionally now…!

          • Yes, I agree too….. What was that other blog…?
            Thanks…! 🙂 Why it made you think of me…..? :}))

            I just think they maybe have some problems which they can’t solve and/or (therefore) talk about… On the other hand, sometimes they are very pleasant when apologizing for the inconveniences that happened (probably the ones they “can” talk about)…..

        • Scripted Sweetz was the name of my other blog, which didn’t last as long as Virily did. There weren’t as many writers as it is on Virily, plus the writers weren’t very serious writers. As for that sitejabber link, it has reviews from others that tried Virily, which I figured you might be interested in sharing something about this site.

          • Oh, yes, I heard about it but didn’t know it’s closed now… OK, I understand… I think writers here are unfortunately not that serious too… :/ I’m actually sorry that this site is generally not that serious, that some photos in old articles are still missing, that it can not be something that would represent my work for serious and I’m still not sure what place/site/blog would be the best for it (the artist presentation)…
            Oh, ok, yes, I understand, I will think about it but thanks for sharing it and the thought of me…!!! 🙂

          • That’s great… I don’t remember how this site is called but I have it in my phone so when I find it I could let you know… The site isn’t that serious like Yelp, but it is something similar to these that pay for different things so you could earn there too… 🙂
            PS Didn’t actually understand what “night to get per review” means..?

          • That is what I have been wondering too but like I wrote in my first article about the changes I got an answer from the admin via Facebook and that shouldn’t be a problem… Take a look, I described everything there…
