    P90X Kenpo last night. Needed a cardio workout, and hadn't done that in a while. Made it a little more intense by doing calisthenics instead of the long, slow yoga warmup. Squat thrusts > vinyasas. :-)

    Still having water retention problem - I do think it's the allergy meds, plus food has been too high in sodium lately.

    Down for the count with a nasty nasty head cold. I can't focus on anything right now. Managed to make it through work. I can't sleep hardly and my chest feels so heavy, it's hard to breathe. However, a bunch of that mucus came out today which is a good sign that hopefully I'll be over it in the next couple days. Still, I walked to dog but today I don't even feel like getting out of this chair. MY head hurts so bad lol. I don't really have a desire to eat either, so at least my calories have been really low. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get back in the gym, but right now it's just not happening.
    Rest up dream and have some soup for me.

    Cure for that is to drink more water. I call that the damn water troll!

    Hey gang

    I like myself unconditionally!

    Happy Thursday! TKO this morning, two clients and Volleyball girls tonight. My training is spread out today and I also have to go shopping for a gift for my mom's bday still. Having a good week so far with calorie reduction, but weekend will be my challenge since I have 2 parties to attend. Damn, I may actually have to workout in my kickboxing class on Saturday!

    Cardio:Arc Trainer- level 35 30 min (350 calories)

    Strength:chest- incline bench, Hammer bench, dips, seated flyes. 12,10,8,6 increasing weight each set.

    Assessment: Well dinner didn't go as planned as we got out late from the gym last night, so we ate out. But scale didn't budge so I didn't overdo.

    I like the results, not the exercise. ;) I didn't have any weights with me, so I did more sets of the other squats to "make up" for the missing extra weight.

    Realized that increasing reps every week is going to lead to my weight workouts taking too long ... so I'm adding weight instead, and doing an A and a B routine that are a little different from each other, though targeting the same basic muscle groups.

    4 sets of everything, targeting 10 reps for the working sets.

    Today:

    Squats - 165 lbs
    Incline Press - 150 (this was tough after doing only flat press for a few weeks!)
    Stiff-Leg Deads - 105
    Pull-Ups (bodyweight, assisted) - 4x10
    Upright Rows - 85 lbs
    Dumbbells Curls - 30s
    Calf Raises - also w/ 30s

    Plus: Ab Ripper X.
