Talking Goal: Best butt in the gym!!

Well, here I am again! I figured I started a new journal that it was time for a new gym log! As of 1/27, I have been on a mission in the gym...get the best butt! lol I have gotten 2 comments on the bum lately but I want to work on it hard core! Also, looking to get way back into the exercise thing! I have been doing great since 1/27. I figured I would start today with recording again here. I took measurements on 1/28:
Measurements:
Neck 13 1/2
Chest 36 1/2
High Waist (Ribcage) 30 1/2
Waist 33
Hips 42 1/2
Thighs R 24 L 23 1/2
Calves 15 1/2
Arms-
Cold: 11 1/2
Flexed: 12 1/4

Not sure about the weight b/c I need to buy a new scale but approx. I am about 183/4. Need to get calipers and take bf%. Also, I took some before pics.

So, here is to a wonderful 2003!!!!!!!
Linda

Linda,

I love your goal, "Best butt in the gym!"

I changed my resistance workout last week and was cracking my friends up this weekend, walking around saying "My ass hurts!" every 5 minutes

Anyway, sounds like you are doing well and had a fun weekend .. can't say I envy the snow, though It was sunny and in the 60s here this past weekend... but before you get too jealous, we are expecting rain this week

Keep up the great work... and cheery attitude! It's nice to read such a positive journal!

Looking forward to the avatar (hint hint), I am such a non-techie, Nat had to shrink my pic for me so I could even post it!


Babs
