Biceps and Beaming

I had a good night last night. I had a gentlemen friend come over for dinner. It is so much better to cook for someone other then for just yourself. I made pork chops, spinach, broccoli rice and apple sauce.  It was good and apparently R liked it a lot because he had seconds. I used the Panko breading which is the greatest stuff. It makes even dull meals exciting. I use it on fish and poultry alike.

Well, as I planned, I broke out the Resistance bands and did some basic exercises. I used the yellow one which is the 3-6 lbs. My biceps are sore this morning but it feels good! I will work with that one and then scale up from there. Apparently the attachment goes on the door knob from what I can tell. The instructions are in a micro font and the picture that is displayed as a sample is also micro. I will google it today and find out how it works. Meanwhile, I can still use them just as they are but it will be good to add a variety of exercises. I encourage you to pick one up. They really are effective and an inexpensive way to get some resistance training in.
I am really enjoying spending time with my friend R. We went to Jr. High and High school togetherWe started talking last summer and have kept in touch ever since.  He is a nice distraction in the chaos of my life for sure. He is handsome, smart, funny, caring and sweet. He is very supportive of me and is rooting me on all the way. It is a great feeling having someone in your corner, you know what I mean? Anyways, it will be interesting to see what the future holds. Until next time...

P.S. Please stop by Hyla's blog, Hourglass Red. She has lost 100 lbs!
