No........get your mind out of the gutter that's not Peanut Butter. :) ha ha ha ha
It stands for personal best. Although I don't think it's REALLY my personal best, because it wasn't a one rep max, but ANYWAY: I single-arm pressed a 40 lb. dumbbell during my shoulder workout last night and I was pretty psyched!!! :) I do them single arm (while standing & holding on to an upright seat for balance) because I like the isolation. I got nice and warm, esp. thru the rotator cuff muscles, and then started with 30's, felt strong, moved it up, and moved it up again. I'm thinking I could do more but would certainly need a spot! :) I use different gloves when I do shoulder work. I use the ones that wrap around your wrist, too, keeping it in neutral position which is a big saver! Anyway, I felt really good and after that I did a handstand against the wall (belly facing the fall) and alternated hands--I brought one arm up to the quad, held it, switched, and then did just quick hand lifts. Reallllllly killed the shoulders. Yup, finished the work with 5 lb. plates doing front/lat. lifts and could barely lift my arms. SUCCESS!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)
So, I know that weight to some may be easy & to some it may be hard, that's why it's called MY PERSONAL best! :) :)
Off to the gym for some stairs & boot camp. Yeahhh, great way to end your week!
Much Love~

Turbo Wednesdays

I know in the past I've always raved about my Turbokick class. Well today we broke an attendance record: there were over 30 people there. It was frickin' AWESOME! Just an amazing workout and so much fun. I hope the class likes it as much as I do. Dang, it felt great!
This morning we were at the gym by 6:45. Did my hour of cardio while Gene lifted, oh and by the way, my IPOD is all charged up again. Yesterday during my morning session it pooped out about 5 mins into my hour on the stairmill. Shoot me now (then) I almost cried! I have a back-up walkman radio just in case, and it breaks into fuzz every other min. NOT AWESOME. so Today I was glad to redeem myself and get in a killer workout, because you know I can't effeciently workout without my IPOD!!
I'm feeling really great. Just hoping day by day to see new muscles *POP*! Yeahhhh! :)
SONG OF THE DAY: Dr. Feelgood by Motley Crue :)

Song of the Day

Hi guys!!! Hope your Sunday is/was enjoyable!
I did 65 min. cardio this morning, have Legs this afternoon, then cardio wihle watching the GLADIATOR finale tonight! Yeah!!! :)
Almost everytime I'm doing cardio, there's a song that I keep repeating because for some reason, during that session, it pumped me up. It may not be a favorite song, but it kept me going when I needed it! What I'm going to do is list a song for the day so you can know what I'm jamming out to! I swear people probably think I'm crazy, bopping around on the stairmill or ellip. ha ha, hopefully I make them laugh! :)
60 days to go! Like C said, "SHOW ME WHAT A BODY CAN DO IN 60 DAYS." That sounds like a challenge. BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
SONG OF THE DAY: Do Somethin' Britney Spears (I know...but listen to this song and try and sit still!)
