Oh goody. They are planning to build a Pro-Life monument in Wichita, KS, which will "include an exact replica of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and memorial gardens. . .It also would include 60 crosses memorializing the estimated 60 million abortions that have been performed since abortion was legalized."

You're going to replicate The Wailing Wall? AND THEN PUT A BUNCH OF CROSSES THERE?

Perfect.

Tonight's workout

Tonight we did our first workout. We did bench presses, straight curls, wrist curls, and bent over dumbbell rows. We started with 10 minutes of cardio and after doing 3 sets of 10 on each lift, we did 10 more minutes of cardio.

It might not sound like much, but it was a good start. We'll see how sore I am in a couple of days.

Tomorrow night we'll work on legs (squats, lunges, leg extensions, and calf raises) and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be rest days.

I made Pres Man take my "before" picture and OMG it's so awful. I am really hopeful that someday I will be far enough away from that person that I will be proud to show it off next to my current shape.

I also measured my upper arms, forearms, thighs, calves, waist, hips, neck, chest, and bust. So now I'll have a record of where I started. The recommendation I'm seeing is to measure yourself once a week on a rest day (the same one every week).

I'm really pleased with us. I had a good time (Really! Which surprised me somewhat) and I feel optimistic about making this a permanent part of our lives.
