the purina diet

Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for Athena the wonder dog at Wal-Mart and was about to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think I had, an elephant? So since I'm retired, with little to do, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, and th...

I once got my 14 minutes in doing squats in the dark while holding the baby to rock her to sleep. It worked -- except I had trouble walking the next day.

Tick Tocks

Holding the Sledge makes more of this than normal stretching.... you can feel this in the obliques. Using them in the middle of the routine also gives your arms a few seconds to breathe. I never knew 10 pounds could feel so heavy! :D

Sumo Squats and Tick Tocks

I have tried a couple of new moves: 1) Sumo Squats - Grabbing the handle of the Hammer to Stablize the Knee bends ( I have a bum knee ) it helps. I start and stop my set with these.

Day Three

Different muscles are working, try the sledge with less reps perhaps?
