Got up a little late but I squeezed in my 20min walk this morning. Decided to do the Spring Into Summer cardio on one of the bikes at the gym. Loved it! Sweated like crazy. Almost as much as I do when I take a spin class. I probably went slower during the rest periods on my own but I’ll work on keeping the speed up next time. I did a short upper body circuit because I don’t have a lot of time on Tuesdays. I volunteer at the boys’ school and I have to be finished by 10a in order to make it to the school on time.

I’ve been working on my pull ups. I know some day just do what you can and you’ll get there. I do that sometimes at home on my bar. But I do like the assisted pull-up/dip machine. I use as little weight as possible so that my arms do most of the work. I’m down to using only 15lbs of assistance :-) Bench press is another favorite of mine that I haven’t done in a while. 65lbs may not sound like a lot to some but it’s over half my weight and without a spotter it’s hard for me to go too much heavier and even get it off the bar.

I did the new BikiniBody routine at night as usual. This really added to the weights I did in the morning. My arms were tired. I used 10lbs except for the second round of the lunges which I used 8lbs. I was able to do 50reps of the the Total Ab Toner exercise :-) I am saving the Bikini Booty workout for Wednesday since that’s my Booty/Leg day.

Talked with my brother and niece via FaceTime for the sunset challenge :-) My brother PJ is the only one who calls me and he is a FaceTime fanatic. I don’t mind because it’s the only way I get to see my adorable niece. I wish they lived closer so I could spend more time with her. My nieces give me the chance to shop for girls. I’m glad I don’t have a daughter of my own because I would be in trouble ;-)
