I won, I won!

After lunch today The Captain left to go work on his varnishing projects and I baked up a batch of my friend's Healthy Power Bars... they turned out just great - will post the recipe soon.

When The Captain returned he didn't feel like heading off for a bike ride, so I got out my 8 lb dumbbells and did about 20 minutes of upper body/arm/core work.

10 each of:
  • bicep curls
  • tricep kickbacks
  • overhead raises
  • lateral raises
  • upright rows
  • delt raises
  • pushups
Repeated that a second time, then:
  • 20 bicycle crunches
  • laying quad lifts, 30 per leg
  • 20 reverse curls
  • 20 bridges
  • side planks, 15 seconds per side
  • full plank, 45 seconds
Not a lot but I can feel it, a few hours later and that is a good thing.  So, it's a start.

And finally...  On a very exciting note, I got a message from Jill this morning to let me know that I was one of the lucky winners in her Moeben sleeves giveaway!  I am so excited to be getting a pair of these gorgeous sleeves and that gives me even more incentive to keep working on the arms and shoulders.
