sweaty scrubby vacuumy housework in my air conditionerless house

 

p.m. Kenpo! Still like it! Tho my back and neck are hurting a little bit... this is due to the fact that M is fixing our bed frame and I am sleeping on our

couch. Too soft! Anyway, I think I am going to look around for some other Kenpo or Kenpo-like dvds for after our 90 day cycle is complete.

Diet looks great.

 

I not sure about the Odewalla Bars. I haven't check the ingredient but I'm sure you have so it must be still okay.

but I know that they just put milk protein in their protein mixed drinks.

I know so stupid of them

Thanks, Tasha.

The 2 Odewalla Bars I've looked at seem fine---tho you need a microscope to read the ingredients! That is just

terrible that they put cow milk in their drinks.

moves

 

Having lower back issues-maybe from sleeping on crappy camp mattress w/a slow leak or soft sofa as bed is being repaired. Sharp stabbing pains going down to the right side. Luckily I'll be sleeping back in the sack tonight!!!! Jeez-I lose the pain in my thigh, then I get this present. Oh well, I'm going to move through it....

 

Back and Biceps-holy bayou batman-it was hotter than it has ever been! I almost hyperventilated at one point. Going outside hardly helped as it was muggy and still. Using the new weights were good except for one thing: the handles collected the moisture and EVERYTHING felt slippery. I still did the same on some exercises- sometimes with a struggle and then I did improve on many too. Thank you, body.

I'll type it out from my worksheets when I get to week 12 so the change will really be more dramatic I guess you could say. Gets tedious every week especially because I don't know the proper way to do it as a list. BTW, this is week 7.

 

The most notable was being able to do the last exercise, "Strip Set Curls" where you are supposed to have 4 different sets of weights---and do a set of 8 on each.

I only had the 15's and 10's weights so the last few times I did 8 @ 15lb then 3 sets of 8 @ 10lb. Didn't love that. Now that I have the 1/2 sizes, I did

moves

 

biking to farm to pick up veggies...round trip 5.5 miles....coming back-an army surplus backpack-had about 13lbs on my back (potatoes, cantaloupe, squash, etc). Not comfortable, but I did alright.

 

Yoga X---- I actually felt a tad more flexible today. Maybe all of this hot and humid weather is loosening me up! Felt really good afterwards.

how's the wine consumption lately?

I just bought a riesling from Alsace yesterday. It's chilling as I type this

 

 

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.

I've gotten to know the product specialist at my favourite store and it has probably cost me a lot of money

He was showing me one of his favourite wines of all time which he said is reasonablly priced at $50

I just can't do it!!!!

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 ing 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.

9:45 big fruit salad (peach, 1/2 banana, 1/2 orange, date, 1/2 pear, pineapple, red grapes,shredded coconut)
