Something crazy happened at Body Pump tonight: I increased my weight on biceps to 23 pounds!!!
Ok, this probably doesn’t blow your mind at all, but this is a huge deal for me. I’ve been taking Body Pump classes, 2-3 times per week, for nearly 7 months now, but I have yet to increase my weight on biceps. It’s the only muscle group where I haven’t made progress.
Before the biceps track started, Mal saw me add the extra weight to my bar and gave me a funny look. He only lifts 5 pounds more, so I think he was a bit surprised that I was attempting more weight. I ended up only missing 3 or 4 reps during the entire track, which is pretty good, considering I went up in weight for the first time.
All of this Body Pump talk probably sounds kind of dorky, but I was really happy when I completed the track. Mal said he was routing for me the whole time and gave me a big high-5 when the song ended. He also called me “Muscles” a few times tonight. It was awesome!
Lunch was great today! I love summer salads!
In the mix: lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, red pepper, a ton of feta, and Goddess dressing. It was a fantastic combination of ingredients. Feta rules!
After lunch, I snacked on two Sandwich Thins with Barney Butter spread on top.
For dinner, I whipped up some cheese tortellini with grated Parmesan cheese and kale chips on the side. Quick and easy.
While dinner cooked, I shared a chocolate protein shake with Mal.
I also enjoyed a small glass of white wine with dinner. Great meal.
For “dessert,” I had a ripe, sweet peach. Mmm!
More Jersey Shore! We’re almost caught up with Season 1!
Good night, folks!
