Even though I had a lot to get done, I still took a walk this morning. I actually made a lot of revisions on my paper in my head.
My paper is done! I wish I had mentioned my topic earlier because you all had some really good input! I made my final revisions last night and today, and I'm ready to turn it in. At least, I'm at the point where I don't want to read it again because I know I'll want to change something, and I just want to leave well enough alone! DH is reading through it, though, and already caught one mistake - doh!
DH brought home my favorite food while I was working on my paper - fresh Georgia shrimp! We ate a pound of it each, at least.
He wanted to take me out for a martini, but I said no, it's a school night. I'm such a nerd!
We're going out for dinner and drinks tomorrow instead.
I lurk on bodybuilder forums because they know something about manipulating body weight. I found a really fascinating argument about what were the best dumbbells, and a lot of them favored a brand called Powerblocks. You change the weight of the blocks with pins, like some of the machines at the gyms. It allows for quick change of weight based on different exercises - much easier than the screw-lock type. That sounded just like what I wanted! They arrived today, and are super cool looking! They range in weight from 3-24lbs. I tried a one arm raise with the 24lb just to see and...erm...yeah...that's going to take a while!
I got the book "New Rules of Lifting for Life" based on the recommendation of A*L*P. I've read through part of it, and I like what it has to say. I particularly like the "Chinese Menu" aspect where I can mix and match exercises to fit my needs and equipment. I'll read through more, design my plan, and I'm eager to get to work!
I'm enjoying a celebratory glass of wine, then calling it a night.
Hope you have a super Friday!
