I LOVE upper body workouts. Tomorrow, I get to work my upper body again and I CAN”T WAIT!!
Today was legs/lower body. I don’t have as much fun with legs as I do with arms. I lack variety. In part, it is because I have a restriction on deep squats. I discovered by MRI that I wore out my patellofemoral cartilage. There’s no getting it back. So empowered with knowledge, I’m limiting how deep I go on my squats so I do not stress my knees. I have no pain. Let me keep it that way.
Upper body, therefore, is LOTS MORE FUN. I LOVE the variety. I cannot do all the exercises I would like to do. So I make sure I do a good 45 minute balance. And everyday I do CARDIO
I have new music on my ipod. Yep. Over 600 highly rated songs I ripped from my old CDs. Why did it take me so long?! I even have old music from the 30s and 40s ripped from Grampa’s old music—R.I.P. It makes me smile. I discovered a new artist –Beth Hart—and bought a bunch of her CDs. She a rocker and is better than Janis Joplin. Just so you know my taste—my other favorite female artists are Mama Cass and Linda Ronstadt.
Gotta go shower.
