Now to the gun show!!  Drum roll..........................................................................

Ok, so it's not "really" the gun show.  More like the Nerf gun show BUT, I'm upgrading...working on it everyday!! :)  Before it would have been something like this.....

WOW!!!  I did a Yahoo search for droopy muscles, or saggy muscles.  Uhhhh, you get tons of saggy necks, saggy boobs, and lots of other pornographic things!!  Google helped me find that more appropriate blog pic to share with you all! 
I hit the gym this morning.  Did 4 miles on the treadmill which was 2run/2walk.  I then did my upper and lower body workout and get this, I was able to do it with my new gym buddy.  YAY to that.  It made the time FLY by.  She had to leave before we started the Upper Body workout but she was able to do the treadmill and Lower Body workouts with me. 

Do you like the coupon examples or  do away with it?  If so I could maybe do this more often.  I'm always up for a bargain.
