Abs..yes...they are there and not in keg style. You may say...who cares, Fargo?
Well, that is a big deal for a girl. I have gone down three sizes.
This weekend I had a swimsuit malfunction. Yikes! You're welcome, People Of The Pool.
I went from pulling down a whopping 10 pounds (yes, I was that weak) to 70 pounds in three weeks on one armed shoulder pulls. Pretty sad. BUT...great progress in a short time. I also went for a crunch max challenge and after 1,000...Obi had to tell me shut it down as we did not have time for me to keep going. Yes, my stomach hurt the next day and the next day...but I was happy with that improvement.
Legs? Well, they have always been strong and I do sets with the max weight on the press. We just have to improvise with me and he has created add on weights to the machine. My form on all exercises went from shit show to tolerable and sometimes even good. LOL. Even with free weights which has always been a form challenge for me but very good to do.
My knowledge of each muscle and how it works has also improved. I find it quite fascinating.
But what is the neatest thing?
On July 3, Obi played classic rock and roll all day. Usually he plays the hard stuff. July 3rd is when my dad passed away in 1989. Classic rock and roll was his favorite. Don't I have the nicest trainer in the world? I think so.
When I was 43, I was in the best shape of my life and I am feeling those same accomplishments now even though I am far from that fitness level. But I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Go me!
It is necessary. My neck feels no pain right now and neither does my shoulder. The numb tingling is gone and my blood work looks marvelous. It means a lot to feel like a human again.
Besides, the world is going to hell in a hand basket and I want to be prepared for anything. I think if I am fit and study war movies, I am good to go. Not really. That was supposed to be my snarky humor attempt.
|This usually pertains to my rifle, but hey...it has two meanings. LOL|
Yep. Like I said last week...the world is at war around us. We need not stick our heads in the sand any longer. When do we get into the fight? I don't know. I feel it will be soon. Maybe November? I guess it depends on who is elected. I even believe Hillary would go to war before Obama.
Trump has been vetting VPs or persons for his Circle of Peeps including Gov. Pence. Hmm. Weird mixture. I find his choices to be fresh and new...not from the old establishment base, but are they going to be a political BANG or BUST? We shall see. He continues with his brash comments which seem to offend many. As to the Twitter feed which raged a bunch of controversy. Please. Can we pander something else to the people? BUT...well played haters. If you are going to pick on your candidates, definitely find those things which can be twisted and run with it. I think it was a stretch. He has dug holes on plenty of other things but this was a little crazy. Makes for fodder, tho, right?
Hillary still skates by without any consequences given for her actions. Now...is she the only one in history who has violated policy? No. I think most people are concerned that is the only meat to the potatoes. I can't believe they can't at least hold her or her office accountable for failing to react appropriately to Benghazi. Not that she has to be perfect, but ignoring a large threat and demand for assistance really gets under my craw. I really don't like that woman. Can you tell?
So what am I saying? Everything in politics remains the same. I think I picked up at the same place two months ago. Let's just have them duke it out the old fashioned way, shall we?
|Yes...remember this game? Well, I improvised it. LOL|
Hope you had a very safe 4th of July! And continue on with those American flags. Mine is up all year.
