5 Things I Have Learned this Week

Today I did a concentration curl for my 43.  (to learn more about the main muscle actually worked in a concentration curl – not the bicep – read evilcyber’s post)

Let’s just view the move in pictures:

just down to here (holding this position makes you have to work at the top and bottom of the move!)

Of course, after I did 43 with my right arm, I still had another set of 43 with my left!

Lower - works best if you check out your muscle!!

I liked this 43.  I started with a 15 pound dumbbell but quickly dropped down to 12 pounds so that I could use good form.  I couldn’t push my elbow against my leg very hard (at all really – bruises, you know) so I just have it resting next to my leg.

So, in honor of Teacher Appreciation week (or just because I felt like it!!) I decided to share a few things I’ve learned in the past week.

  1. Doctors do not always inform you about all possible outcomes of various procedures.
  2. As much as I enjoy reality TV, I like it much better when I watch it while on the treadmill!
  3. 10-month old babies are fun but lots of work (been awhile since my boys were that little).
  4. Sadly, I’m probably the opposite of a Sherpa.  This was a new word for me so I guess this sort-of counts as learning 2 things!!!  Check out Lindsay at Cotter Crunch – she is the living definition of a Sherpa!!!
  5. Plug-ins on Word Press blogs don’t always work!!  Lately I’ve been having lots of issues with my CommentLuv – it works for awhile and then quits.  Sorry that you aren’t always able to leave your most recent post.  I’m not high tech enough to fix it!!

I better get a move on since I haven’t even showered and Chris is waiting on me for a quick little road trip today!!  (My legs might not be elevated but they will be resting in the car!!)

Happy Fun Friday!!!

Kim
