I don’t know what to say about September. Our unpredictable weather has continued. Things have been busy- as usual. Exercise has been off and on. I’ve just been doing my best to keep up I guess. And now it’s October. How’d that happen?
Stealing a photo from my last past as this is indeed a good representation of September’s workouts.
Though of course, there have been some other activities thrown in there for variety.
I’ve done 4 New Rules of Lifting workouts (2 different plans, 2 x each) and the biggest surprise is how short the workouts are. I worked hard, but it was over fast.Even though I actually followed the instructions and rested between sets, which I normally wouldn’t do (I usually turn these types of plans into a circuit where I move from one exercise to another, instead of completing all sets of one with rests in between – based on this post by Charlotte I’m not alone). Nothing in either of the workouts I did was new to me, and yet I finished the first workout thinking “something was different about that workout”…Then I realized it was only 5 exercises. Huh. That’s different.
My feeling thus far is that I am happy to have another option for getting in a good strength workout in a short amount of time. The more options I have, the more I can switch things up, which I like. Keeps things interesting.

Other than that, I shall leave you with photos of sleeping cats…
The sad amount of tomatoes I’ve been getting from my garden this year…
And Sunflowers. I planted a bunch. Only 3 came up. But it’s nice to see something cheery in my poor garden.
