The end of the week...yeah!

This morning was my last day of classes for the semester :). I was up late finishing a paper, but I still got up and braved the cold to make it in to work out. The gym was rather empty. Made me wonder if it'll be that way until exams are over...and wonder how full it will be in the spring with everyone resolutioning...hope it doesn't get too crowded.
I did my upper body today. I bumped up from 8Lb dumbells to 10 lb ones. Owie. A challenge :)
I hopped on the bike for 30 minutes and then did some ab work...

I really am getting msucles in my legs now. In fact I am getting a bit concerned that some of the exercises I'm doing to my lower body are making my outer thighs larger than I'd like so I'm going to do a bit of research into what exercises don't make for bigger thighs but will still strengthen my knees.

I am excited that we got our contract signed at work so we got a bit of backpay...so I can go shopping for a few new clothes, which will be great. I'm lacking in fitted pants and clothes period at the moment. It's a good thing healthwise, but really frustrating when you want to wear anything that fits and everything is baggy. I'm not a fashionista - I just require my pants to stay up! So next week while I'm christmas shopping a bit I'll also see what I can find for me. I'm envious of people who have always been one size...how many clothes you must have to choose from. I'm relishing the thought of shopping and having everything fit...I will have choices. :)

Have a great weekend!

Does your gym offer Pilates? I have a lot of clients with knee issues and Pilates helps a lot. I don't know if there are reformer classes available (or if they're affordable), but it can be very helpful.
Good luck on the rest of your exams!!!!

I don't know...I'll look into that. That's a great idea. Thanks :)
