Great!

Lelle is in charge this time, I'm totally out of the contest, so it will run much smoother as well. I am still working on getting all the data up from all of you who participated in the last shape-up challenge.

Best of luck in this one as well! I'm sure it will be great!

It always amazes me that after months (or more) of no weight lifting, that the muscles snap right back into form. Painful form, but form none the less :)

I rode my bicycle the 12 mile route yesterday to loosen up my thighs so I can do some weights today.

I didn't do any work outs over the weekend [-X

This week I am committed to 2 things: completing 3 weight training workouts before Friday and reducing the amount of fat I have been eating by focussing on fruits and vegies.

Another kick ass day - Thursday: weights, cardio, cals under 1900.

Still adjusting to weight lifting - delayed onset muscle soreness makes me walk funny!! (I haven't done any weight training since Sept 06 - and then I only did it for 3 months for the summer shape up challenge (July 1 - Sept 24, 2006) Before that - I hadn't lifted weights since 2001.
