LW 08 - Week 4

I'm down a pound this week! Woohoo! It's amazing what happens when you actually GO to the gym instead of just PAYING to go to the gym...LOL! I did learn a few things this week, though:

  1. Do not attempt to do 4 sets of any weight routine when you haven't lifted anything in 6 or 8 months.
  2. Do not start a new weight routine for your arms the day before you are supposed to bowl. You WILL NOT have control over your own limbs.
  3. Do practice some restraint when tempted with graham crackers and PB...serious trap!
  4. Do not stop stretching completely just because your legs felt good for 8 whole hours. The feeling will not last.

Starbucks can be so addicting. Hope you are able to resist.
