Today was a first for me - I finally got to meet another BFL blogger! Hi Cristie!

We met, had lunch and had a GREAT time. For those of you who know her - she's even more fun in person - neener. The best part was when we sat down to lunch, looked at the menu and she said "I'm not eating BFL today". I went "Whew! cause I really would like a Patty Melt". A little good food and a good company goes a LONG way. I can't wait to do it again.

To top it all off I managed to get out of bed at 4:00AM today. Ok, well _I_ didn't. The alarm went off and my fiance got up and turned on the light. I love that man!

After a warm up I did chest - I Love chest day almost as much as my honey...

The workout:

Flat Bench Press (+ bar): 60 x 6/70 x 6/70 x 6
Incline Dumbbell Press: 45 x 6/45 x 6/45 x 6
Flye: 25 x 6/25 x 6

Then because I had extra time I did some abs

Cable Crunch: 130 x 15/150 x 15/150 x 15
Roman Chair Leg Lifts: 10 & 10

I did my cardio last night too so I'm on a roll! 20 minutes of interval training - Incline from 1.5% to 3% @ 4.3 MPR. It felt fantastic.

Also - Irene from muscletank mentioned the bay to breakers race and that got me thinking. It's a 12K on May 21st. I'm happier doing my cardio when I'm training for something. I've got PLEANTY of time to train for a 12K so .. I'm doing it. THEN my honey mentioned that they are bringing back the run for the far side. It has a 5K division on Thanksgiving weekend. I thought to myself - why not! So I think I'm going to do that one too! I'm so excited and feeling ON FIRE. Thanks Irene.


  1. First of all, I'm so jealous that you got to meet Christie, but so glad you had a great time! BFL-eating or not, LOL!

    Secondly way to go on getting up for your workout and kicking butt. I so admire those of you who train for (and DO) those races. I'll be cheering for ya!


  2. Thanks jess - I did a 5K a long time ago and LOVED it. I felt a 100 Feet tall when I crossed that finish line - I can't wait to do it again.
