I weigh less than hubby for the first time ever.

Yup. That's right. I've been over 200 pounds since we first started dating almost 4 years ago, and even though he loves me no matter what, and actually liked the size I was, it always made me feel like crap to know that my little 5'2" body weighed more than my extremely muscular 6-foot-tall other half. It just didn't seem right. Well, today, I weighed in at 196, and he weighed in at 197. I'm pretty proud of myself.

At the gym today, I did lower body. Again. Funny thing is, the people at PT gave me some stretches to do to "help" with my trapezius issue. Well, Wednesday night my left arm/shoulder area felt pretty good after my PT treatment, then I hit the gym and it still felt fine. I did the stretches they told me to do before I went to bed, and my arm started killing me and I could barely fall asleep. I did them again today, and the pain got worse. I'm supposed to do them 2-3 times per day, but that's not gonna happen. I'm the sole caregiver of a 3 month old during the day, and I can't afford to have the use of my left arm limited any further. I don't know what the deal is, but I'll run the issue by them tomorrow when I go to PT. I had to reschedule yesterday's appointment because I got invited to an impromptu get-together at hubby's grandmother's house, so now PT is tomorrow morning instead.

Here's today's workout:

Bike 14 min @ 95-100 rpm, 1 min sprint @ 120, mostly level 2, 5.75 mi
Calf extension 1x15 @ 70 lbs, 2x20 @ 35
Glutes 1x15 @ 60, 2x20 @ 30 per side
Hip adduction 1x15 @ 100, 2x20 @ 50
Hip abduction 1x15 @ 100, 2x20 @ 50
Leg press 1x15 @ 70, 2x20 @ 35
Leg extension 1x15 @ 40, 2x15 @ 20
Leg curl 1x15 @ 40, 2x20 @ 20
