Last night was my 23rd FIRM workout. I watched the whole video this time, including the tips. It was good, actually, and helpful. They said it takes 21 times to establish a habit and 100 times for that habit to become automatic, so they suggest setting those as goals and celebrating when you reach them. I also figured out - I suspected this - that I am not using heavy enough weights. This may be why I feel frustrated, like I am not getting far enough. But I have stepped from the lower three - 3, 5, and 8 - to the upper three - 5, 8, and 10 - lately. Maybe it is time to get some 12-pound weights. The exercises that depend on my body weight, of course, are just right. In fact, because of my extra weight I think I work damned hard at some of them.

The "hovers" are the ones that are getting to an extremely weak part of me. Because of my knee injuries I have used assistance for years in getting up, and some muscles practically do not exist now. But these exercises, which are very difficult for me, are starting to make sense and yield results. This is a lot of the reason I want to try skating again.
