Thank you! I also cracked a tooth last night, so I'm really hoping once I get that fixed my cold will go away in conjunction. (like, maybe the tooth was the source of the sinus pressure, pain, & headache)
How have you been?

I am OK. I had surgery mid Nov and a host of bad bad bad,,,I will add one more bad things happen ...all following being laid off from a really amazing career job...and my sanity and anchor is always the gym! Always. Still not working, but I had to get strong from the train wreck that occurred in my life...I just came through the most awful times...at one point I was down about 7 pounds from where I am now and all I can say is that the gym saved my life. I d like to be down that 7,...actually, it's probably 3-5 now, I don't weigh..I use my clothes and I am freakishly accurate when I do weigh. So there. I am contemplating writing what really happened as its a Hallmark movie or Jerry springer( and for those that watch southpark, a pabst blue ribbon white trash moment)

So cool you have a non vegan , but vegan friendly man in your life! And a sweet one, too. People like you on forums, whose goodness oozes..well, thank you. Your beauty and radiance shines through, as do many others here.

So, how was the work out under the weather and is the tooth/sinus any better? oh, and the sushi looked divine! Your BF is a keeper!

Journal for the weekend:
Saturday-went on a really long walk about 2 hours with a girlfriend through the hilly neighborhood!
Today (Sunday)- 30 minute walk after 1/2 time up some steep hills ;) today was mellow, but I'll be back at it tomorrow!
Divamom--Oh man! When it rains it pours!! I'm sorry to hear of your plight! :-( sounds like a really rough time...BUT, we grow through the tough times!!! You should write a screen play ;-)
I am lucky! He's a good guy! I'm glad I can have a positive affect on you via the forum!! It's good to be encouraged by like minded acquaintances!
The tooth is still painful, hoping to get in tomorrow to get to fixed!
I'm not sure about the sushi? We went to eat at a sushi bar?? but I had a tofu stir fry ;) I got teased for being the only one not eating fish :)
But, yes, he is a keeper!!! ;)
Hope you had a great weekend!!

Been a bit of a while...Life's crazy, and I have got to learn to NOT let that depict whether I blog or not! RIGHT?? ;)

I had an amazingly intense leg workout today! I am not trying to put on size as much as I am tone up, as I'm training for a figure competition!

I started with Smith Machine Squats (unassisted). 6 set of 8-12 reps

set #1: 45lb bar w/10lb plates

set #2: 45lb bar w/20lb plates

set #3: same as #2

set #4 45lb bar w/25lb plates

set #5: 45lb bar w/30lb plates

set #6: 45lb bar w/35 plates

I super set these squats with 1/2 dumbbell calf raises & sled calf raises, 6 sets of 15 reps.

set #1: 20lb dumbbells 15 calves, feet slightly turned out *first position :)

set #2: 20 lb dumbbells, toes straight forward

set #3: 20 lb dumbbells, slow raise and lower, in turned out position again.

set #4: calf sled machine-45+ 25=70lb (140 total + sled) toes slightly turned in

set #5: calf sled machine-same weight, toes straight ahead

set #6: calf sled machine-45lb plates only, toes turned out

After a set of each of the following I ran 2 minutes in between...

step ups w/15lb dumbbells- 3 sets-12 reps

super set w/walking lunges wi/abdominal twist 10lb plate-8 lunges per leg, 3 sets

Running in between continued here...

Leg extension 90lb-double leg-2 sets of 12 reps

Leg curl 70lb-double leg-2 sets of 12 reps

Leg extension-50lb single leg-final set of 10

Leg curl 30lb-single leg- final set of 10

Stretched. Drank protein. Ate salad. Blogged ;) Time for bed!!!

Stay Strong. Stay focused. Whatever your goal is....YOU'VE GOT THIS!!!


*oh, yeah...I showered :-P
