Well it's been a pretty good week. Good weigh-in and 3 days workout with trainer. Got a busy weekend with late nights and long days, so I'll be working extra hard to watch what I eat and how often. It's a challenge, but it's important to my shape-up showdown. Continue reading

Worked out with Donald on Wednesday. We worked on Biceps and Shoulders. We worked in the core exercises too. I have to learn to listen to the trainer. Tried to move up in weights too quickly and then couldn't complete the third set of the reps. Core work is hurting,... Continue reading
