If you have been reading this blog, you probably realized that I get up at 5am everyday. Well, tomorrow I am sleeping in!

Usually,  I get up at 5am to get ready for my 6am workout.  However, tomorrow I am excited because I will be starting a new class offered by my gym.  This class happens to be offered at 5:30PM instead of in the morning.  The class is an all weight lifting class--Just Lift.  I am supremely excited about this class because I am so pumped to continue developing my muscles, especially in my arms and shoulders.  On Friday I was hanging out with my Mom, and she saw my arms and stated, "Wow, your arms have gotten smaller. There is a noticeable difference."  I shrugged it off because I know I have more work to do [I'm still working on accepting compliments :)], but let me tell you, I was looking at my arms the other day and I CAN SEE bicep and tricep definition where all I used to see before was cellulite.  So, coupled with my cardio workouts each week, I am going to do Just Lift.  In the past, on Mondays, I would do Kettlebell Bootcamp, which combines cardio and weight lifting, but I am going to try Just Lift and see how I feel.  If feel like I need more cardio, I will add it back in. 

So, that's it for today--short and sweet.  As you can see, I ate chili a lot today--probably not the best idea, but I was being lazy and didn't feel like cooking. :(  Also, I'm still not quite feeling the Think Thin bars--three more to go.  I had Chocolate Covered Strawberry today and could probably get used to that one if I really concentrated...LOL We'll see! :)


  1. I think you'll find you'll still be breathing hard and sweaty (like from cardio) with some heavy lifting. I still like bootcamp-like workouts, but I'm loving learning to lift and lift heavy. I just figured out I can squat 165 the other night and it was such a boost mentally for my fitness. :)

  2. Also - it helps me to be in a gym with other women who are more thin and fit, but they are kicking my butt with how much they can lift. So it reinforces that what I am doing is the right path.

  3. WOW!!! 165!! That's awesome! Just Lift was great tonight! We focused on back, shoulders, and lats today. I'm trying to decide whether I will keep going, I really like morning classes. I might decide to do both, the am and pm class.
