helloooo sparkies!!! feelin real good today. i did shoulders, abs, and 1 hour on the arc trainer today... i was disgustinggg. LOVE IT!!! i'm on my 7th quart of water right now. been doing AWESOME with my nutrition. i didn't even have a treat day last week. i think i might have one this week, though. i've been changing up my routine a bit lately.. so this is basically my new one:
sundays & wednesdays = shoulders, abs, 1 hr. of cardio.
mondays & thursdays = back, chest, 45 min. of cardio.
tuesdays & fridays = biceps, triceps, 45 min. of cardio.
saturdays = OFF

on friday, i had an exciting moment.. i did 3 sets of bicep curls with 12.5lb dumbells, and when i was taking a sip of water, i thought, i wonder if i can do 15 lbs... so i picked them up, and i did ONE WHOLE SET WITH 15 LB. DUMBELLS!! first time ever... i was so pumped. i came home and shared the news with my bro and my dad.. my dad's all like, "15 lbs?? well don't hurt yourself.. geez.." and i was like, "dad, i'm not gonna hurt myself, it's not that much, and i know what i'm doing" and he's like, "well... well, don't get too big.. buncha muscles." .... this coming from the same dad that was making me feel like sh*t about my weight 4 years ago. GRRR. always such a concerned father...LOL. him saying that about me lifting 15's helped me set the goal that in 2 weeks, 15 lb. dumbells will be the ones i use anytime i do bicep curls. OHHH YEAAA! :) i'm so stoked. seriously.
but yea, so i don't have to be back at work til 11:30 am on thursday.. plenty of time to myself so i can GO HARD... excited! hope all of you have a great week!

much love,

    Wicked job on the bicep curls! You are a machine, girl! YA!!!
    But I have one question about your strength training schedule: Why does not contain any leg work? Do you think you are doing enough legs with all the cardio you do? It is true that cardio does utilize the leg muscles... but in a completely different way then weight lifting does! Cardio DOES NOT build muscle!
    I think you would see some HUGE benefits by adding some weighted lunges, squats, and deadlifts into your program!!! I bet you'd also start losing more BF because you'd be building lean muscle mass to your body's biggest muscles and in turn elevating your metabolism!

    Just my 2 cents! =) Keep up the awesome energy!! I love hearing about your progress!
