Some extra weight (mundane pleasures)

This is my thing where I post every Wednesday about something mundane that has delighted me this week.

I love a good bodyweight workout as much as the next girl, and I’ve certainly been increasing my resistance load since the world shut down (if you get my drift)…but after two weeks of home workouts (and multiple pillagings of my Lindt chocolate stores), I’ve been itching to shake things up.

My gym is renting out some of their equipment, and I was able to get my hands on a couple of 10lb dumbbells. I should probably be pushing the weight more than this, but at least it’s something, and I feel a little splash of excitement every time I lift them over my head.

I know exercise equipment has been exceedingly hard to come by during the pandemic — if you’re on the hunt for something, consider calling around to some local gyms and see if they’re renting out any of their stuff.
