I just love feeling like I've gotten things done, that feeling of accomplishment. I completed Stage 1 of New Rules today, I'm done with the laundry, dinner is all ready, I'm all packed and there is nothing on my to-do list but have a little relaxation time before I travel. That feeling of lightness, of having free time doesn't come around often but when it does it is heavenly! What do you do when you have a block of absolute free time?

Here is how my final workout went. Stage 1 special workout B, the set up is the same as the workout I did on Friday, do all 5 exercises the I did them in the very first B workout, as many reps as possible.

Deadlift (45 pound Olympic bar)~40 reps, rest 60 seconds.
Shoulder press (7.5 dumbbells)~ 30 reps, rest 60 seconds.
Wide-grip lat pull down (36 pounds)~ 30 reps, rest 60 seconds.
Alternating lunges~ 30 to each side, rest 60 seconds.
Swiss ball crunches~ 100!!!! Jump on the treadmill for some vigorous walking because this workout really energized me.

I know stage 2 is going to be tough but I am really looking forward to it.

I want to thank reader Leila for giving me a Sunshine Blogger Award. :)

I'm supposed to pass it on, so it's going to Lori at Finding Radiance. She's the one who inspired me to start heavy lifting the New Rules way. Jump over to her site and be sure to enter the Attune pro-biotic bar giveaway she's holding.

  1. I love that feeling when everythings put in its place and you have 'you' time to just be. I usually sit on the front porch and just breathe. I hate feeling guilty when there are things to be done and I am wasting time, so it is such a treat to have everything done. Good job!
