    Judy, would you mind telling me what your arm weight routine consists of and what weights you are using? I have my own little routine but I don't know if I am missing something.

    Hi Kathy
    I do 15 reps 2 sets with 10 pound weight bicep curls
    then I do bent over rows with 20 pound weights same 15 reps 2 sets
    then I move on to 5 pound weight for laying on bench same 15 reps 2 sets this is holding the weights and it is like hugging a giant ball pectural flys
    stand up do side lifts with 5 pound weights just a little out to my sides same reps and sets then bend over and hold same weights with bent arms and raise them to the back for triceps. then do standing arms slightly bent shoulder raises I arm at a time 15 each arm 2 sets
    then I move do forward steps holding weights lowering my knee in back as close to floor as I can I do 15 each leg alternately a count of 30 2 sets this gives me close to an all over work out


    That's my workout some times I change it up and use a cowbell to do bent over circles too

    Breakfast - English muffin, apple butter, 1 clementine, 2 cups Roma

    The plan-

    Lunch - I have been craving some black bean soup, so I am going to try to find some. I don't do canned soup. If that fails, I found some pea soup in the freezer for a fall back, and an apple

    Dinner - I think I can repeat last night's and substitute a sweet potato or maybe a salad.

    WHOA, JUDY! You are one strong girl! 20 pound weights is awesome! And even 10 pounders! I'm working away with my five pound weights and some of the moves are tough with my left arm. I think I am doing the same moves except that I have to skip the knee lowering move at the end. I try to do each move really slowly and I don't lie down on a bench. I'm the wimpy version of you! It takes me about 20 minutes. Does that sound right?

    I think I am doing the equivalent of the pectoral flys by standing with my arms out to the side and then slowly bringing them to the front together. It's hard with the 5 pounders! I'll have to add the other one you do on the bench. I'll have to work up to your level. JUDY IS DA BOMB!

    About time I showed up, huh? I been cleaning and re-arranging all my supplies down in our basement for our Seniors ministry tables. What a job that was.

    Ok, Weigh-In 186

    Brkfst - 3/4 cup fresh pineapple, 1 cup of joe w/c/s

    Lunch - 1 1/2 cup of homemade chicken soup and let me tell you, don't put thyme in your soup. Ha ha. It gives it a weird taste.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -185; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Opps, forgot to add, I walked 20 mins again. I went from walking 10 mins to 15 and now I'm up to 20. Starting next weekend I will try and do 25. It's not showing on the scale but I notice I don't have quite the hard time doing up and down our stairs. Cool, huh?
