It was a good strong and secure workout! <BR> <BR> I was surprised of the difference . . I mean . . I knew it would add more resistance . . I was surprised I could do it. I had it in my mind that it would be much harder than it was! <BR> <BR> I have some goals and projects to get done today!

The man has made serious changes so he knows what he is talking about! <BR> <BR> Yesterday was a little hard as the weather change affected my sinuses..I do hate a head ache. I become so debilitated from them! <BR> <BR> Today it is supposed to get up to 65 here!! That means a some good cardio out on the road and around the block! <BR> <BR> I am going to renew my membership to my Alma Mater and use the campus indoors as well as join...

My insurance will only pay for one a year..but I guess that is good enough! <BR> <BR> It was a good physical last year except for the weight . . . So I want to make this one memorable as well as historical! <BR> <BR> So I am scheduling the physical for 90 day from now! I am not sure just how I can track those goals on this blog..I am open to ideas from anyone that reads this blog!

I stepped on the scales and they went up.. <BR> <BR> I do hope it is due to muscle buildup and maybe salt from the crackers and ham at the dinner party! I have been eating well and within my calorie range! <BR> <BR> I know I am showing muscle definition as others have commented on it as well. <BR> <BR> I guess I will have to see what next weeks' weigh-in will say!
