Home Workout Photos and a Sad Day

I got a call about 2:00am this morning letting me know that my grandmother passed away. We did know that it would happen soon but it still isn't easy. She was a goofy, fun loving person but she was ready to move on. She was 92 years old.

I didn't get much sleep after that and was dragging all day long. I came home and took a nap hoping to get some much needed rest and energy and it was awesome. I slept so well after teaching today. I woke up and my wife said, "let's do Subway tonight"; good idea! We did Subway and I don't remember the last time it tasted so good. We ate it while watching the Biggest Loser. I have to admit that I have been going for the underdog black team to lose the most weight because they have lots going against them. It's always fun to watch and it's inspiring to me.

I took some photos of one of my home workouts today. I thought they looked pretty cool. Who knew that a chair and my weight would work as an effective workout?!

Chair dips = 3 sets of 12 dips

Inclined Pushups = 2 sets of 15

Chair lifts = 3 sets of 20

Chair squats = 3 sets of 12

1 MILER ATTEMPT # 2 -- 10 min 52 sec. (lap 1 on pic)

That's cutting 30 seconds off of my last attempt!
