Learning New Stuff!



Learning new stuff is fun and sooooo important! I expect that I'll never ever stop learning and for those of you who KNOW me you know I love to self-experiment. My current experiment is "the WATER CURE"....which basically teaches people to drink more water and intake more salt (sea salt)... I have been drinking plenty of water my entire adult life, but the SALT is NEW! AND I have to say it really makes sense to me. I started taking salt with my water yesterday so it's too soon to tell much, but I feel good so far!

BuFFING is going GREAT!!! This morning I weighed in at 126...so that's 2 pounds off of me since last Friday when I started buffing~ MY Goal is to reach 125 by Friday and then 124 by the end of buffing next Friday....then I'll take pics and compare to the ones I took on 3/28.

My workout today was CHEST, TRIs, ABS, intervals and 100 lunges...

HOME~
Ran outside 2 times around big block~ 3miles
Intervals (basically just picking up the pace here and there...not too organized)
Then 100 walking lunges broken into sets of 30, 30, 40...my quads are a bit sore from the lunges over the past 2 days~ but my booty is not. I hope to remedy that with tomorrow's leg workout!!!

Then I spent the rest of the afternoon outside chatting with my sister, messing around on facebook, checking e-mails, etc...It was PERFECT outside- 70, sunny and AWESOME!!!
I had a Tired TOOSHIE Tuesday!! YAY!! I love doing LUNGES~ they hurt so good!! As you can tell my week is off to a good start...I am feelin' GOOD! Monda I got in a decent leg workout and some extra cardio- 30 mins total (includes a 15 min warm up). I was also able to get a bunch of cleaning done around the house and laundry too!!
Laundry is all done at the moment!!
So...Tuesday I did a really good BACK, SH, BI, ABS and 100 lunges workout!! It went well and I am leaning up in my shoulders and chest~ so weird to see striations while lifting--actually, It's kinda gross...thank God that my upper body doesn't look like that 24/7.
Well, I gotta go...I have a conference call soon~
Love ya,
