I weighed in last night up .4 lbs. Not really surprised with this little gain because of the soreness from being in Beast Mode.
Week of Workouts
Thursday I couldn't decide what to do so I ended up with Rockin' Body Party Express.
Friday I designed my own workout from Kathy Smith's Lift Weights to Lose Weight 2. I did the squats then upper body standing and floor routines.

Saturday I rested up to prepare to begin Body Beast on Sunday. First up was Build: Chest/Tris. The decline pushups seemed easier than regular ones...I guess because I didn't have to worry about my legs. I sure could feel this workout in my shoulders!
|The modifications I made to fit my availability|
Monday I was still feeling tenderness in my shoulders so I was glad that it was Build: Legs day. One of the exercises is seated calf raises. Umm...I felt nothing with them. Do I have to have super heavy weights sitting on my legs to feel like I did anything? What's up with that Sagi?
Yesterday I still felt tenderness in my shoulders but could feel it going away. I felt kinda pooped doing Beast: Cardio & Abs. I was more into it this workout than I was last Sunday.
This morning was Build: Shoulders. Dumbbell shrugs are another one where I felt nothing...even with 11 lbs. I struggle so much with lifting focusing on the shoulder muscles that I pretty much stuck with the 3 lb dumbbells for most of the workout.
So for the first three weeks Thursdays will be my rest day. The following five weeks I switched it to Sunday but it could also be Saturday, depending on how I feel. You can take a look here to view the schedules in Google Docs.
