HAPPY MONDAY EVERYBODY!!!
OK-I did Meso 10 this morning and those drop sets for the shoulders were a killer. I have been able to stick with my 1RM pretty much up to this point, but I swear someone got into my program and altered the #'s. Gayle, I don't know how you did it with those heavy weights for the shoulders. My WC said to start with 20's, then 16's and end with 13's. I barely tweeked out 7 with the 20's. That was really, really tough!! I am feeling it already
. I particularly don't like the barbell curls with the band either. I will look for a lighter weight band when I repeat next week. I struggled with that move also, but I'm going to blame it on a stiff band
I woke up to about 5" of snow this morning, with another 2-4 forecasted before the end of the day. It's hard having a really nice day where a light jacket would suffice, to having to dig out boots & gloves again. That's Michigan for you!
I have a great attitude today and I am very focused! I am eating my lunch while I post (Tilipia, brown rice and yogurt) and I'm back on the right path. DS in on his spring break, so I get to take a lunch hour all this week, and that really helps break up my day.
If anybody happens to read a post about the Cathe Tower please let me know. I don't always get on the other forums, and I would like to order as soon as it's announced.
Gayle-I may have to try your trick with the barbell move until I get a rack or Cathe's tower. I need a "way out" just in case I can't get the bar off of me. I will be working out in the basement starting with Meso 2, in the early morning, and there would be no way my DH or DS would hear me if I ran into trouble. I err on the side of caution always when lifting, but let's face it, Cathe really has us pushing harder than ever before
Chrissy-Lazer tag sounds like a fun way to spend the day. My DS could play lazer tag all day, then ask him to clean his room and he is suddenly exhausted. I need to get a motivational sticker to place on my fridge so I think twice before openning. Maybe the sound of a cow MOOING when the fridge door opens (It's a thought!!)
Cystal- 4.5 mile run. WTG - Do you run the roads or treadmill? I haven't hit the road yet, but will when the warmer weather comes our way. We are in a rural area, and our dirt roads have been so muddy for the past month, I would come home covered in mud. A weekend in the mountains sounds fantastic. You may have some really sore legs after doing Disc 15, so trail walking may be a bit of a challenge. Just don't let them see you cringe!!!!!!
Cendrine-My weekend binge is a thing of the past. With you and everyone else discussing clean eating, and body fat ratio's, I have no choice but to follow suit. Someday we may all meet, and I need to be sporting a "Cathe Workout Body" if that time ever comes
Jo-I am so jealous that you live on/by a walking trail. I have to drive into town about 7 miles away to enjoy our walking path, so it's easy to talk myself out of it. It's nice walking on our dirt road, but the cars drive by so fast and throw up stones. Tends to be a bit dangerous, and people out in the country don't always tie up their dogs, so you never know if doggie is going to be friendly or not when they race out to the road to great you~
Kim-Glad you returned safely. Hope you have some fun stories to share with us! No holding back the good stuff (remember, we won't tell
OK, my lunch hour is over, so time to get BUSY.... I'll check back later when I have more time. Have a great day!!!
