Sounds nice---but according to my notes here...not since the 6th when I polished off that last bottle. When it's around
it's hard to resist....and I have resisted buying more. It helps that the liquor store that I can walk to is a bit expensive.

moves

Legs and Back--- going solo tonight. M had to work and go to a meeting late.
Feeling pretty good all-around. Improved on assisted pull-ups of different varieties. Many of the exercises
do not require weights, but I did improve on one that did, Calf Raises. I had used 10 lbs since the beginning and I did fine with the 12.5 lbs. You do 15 slow raises onto your toes with your feet pointed outwards, then 10 fast....repeat with feet parallel.....repeat with feet pointed inward. That's the deal.

Ab Ripper---still hate it, but I notice it is going a little bit faster now....a little bit. Tad.

can I just say that my nails are in the best shape of my life...I guess the rest of my body will catch up slowly!

moves

yoga x- like the beatles sang- "It's getting better all the time" & "it can't get much worse" . No-actually the big improvement this time was I didn't feel the need
to let out a big huge disgusting noise every time I did my vinyasa thing. Wow! That's better for M because it would frequently make him laugh. Yeah, strength~

(weird-I did not include that face-but it showed up on it's own!)

moves

core synergistics - since I haven't done this one in 3 weeks there was a lot of pausing of the dvd. Lots of surprises. I forgot how many different
kinds of pushups we had to do. I would've "enjoyed" this much more had it been cooler and there was oxygen. Another horridly hot and humid night and I didn't note too much improvement. A few things I added weight where there was no weight before.

[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]

meals

9:45 big fruit salad (peach, 1/2 banana, 1/2 orange, date, 1/2 pear, pineapple, red grapes,shredded coconut)
11:30 small soy cafe latte and 1 cup regular coffee, 1/2 best donut I've had in my life vegan or not vegan. (yes this one was vegan-I don't roll any other way)
2:00 1 slice sprouted bread, toasted w/ Earth Balance
5:00 7 almonds, a few cashews, 1/2 banana choc. chip muffin
6:00 about 1 1/2 cups mac and cheeZe, big salad(spring greens, red cabbage, carrot, cuke, agave mustard dressing)
