    I also have a hard time with the Lateral Press. I swear, anything more than 15 lbs and I simply cannot get it to move. I feel your pain.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Why is that so hard? I don’t get it. I can do a chest press or the pec fly at like 45 pounds but the Lateral Press is brutal.

    Awesome workouts and amazing arms!

    That looks like a great trail. Soon I’ll have a bike and my husband and I have been looking for good bike trails. I want to ride the Banks-Vernonia trail and there’s also one near Adna, in Washington, that used to be a railroad tracks that’s been paved over to make a trail. Very much looking forward to having a bike, finally! And…we found some decently priced hybrids to buy. 🙂

      The Banks Vernonia trail is great! I wrote a post about it here:

        That was a great entry, thanks! Good information, too. I didn’t know about the gravel. My husband and I were in Vernonia a couple of months back and we walked a few miles of the trail before having a late lunch in Vernonia and we wondered what the trailhead in Banks would be like. Anyway, thanks again!

          We did part of the Vernonia trail but since we have road bikes we couldn’t ride on the several miles of gravel mid-trail. But I heard they are trying to pave that section so that’s good.

    Oh! I forgot to comment on your arms. That is very impressive! You look fantastic.

      Thanks Sasha! I’m glad it’s finally visible!

    Holy crap – what an improvement in those pipes – errr – arms, I mean. Great job! Cheers, Rick

      Thanks Rick! I’m pretty happy.

    Great job on your workouts and your arms look awesome!!! I think my arms are kind of a lost cause…they have loose skin after losing a lot of weight. :/

    I would say my weekend workouts tend to be a little less intense than the weekdays. I think I’m more active on the weekends though (if that makes sense). I did manage to fit in 80 minutes of spinning today and I was very happy with that! 😀

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I still haven’t tried a spinning class! I’d like to.

      My weekend workouts are definitely the more intense and the longer!

    Portlandia!! Did you watch the show? I thought it was hysterical and I can’t wait to see it again.

    You can really see the transformation in your arms and shoulders. You look fantastic. I usually do my long runs on Saturday or Sunday because it’s the only time I have enough daylight hours to work with and I’m more fresh (fresher?!) in the morning as opposed to after work. I thought I’d have more flexibility when I took this job but I’m pretty much stuck there from sunrise to sunset. Blah.

      Thanks Marie!

      I did see Portlandia. It was pretty funny. Some of the skits were a little silly but the one with the couple ordering chicken in the restaurant and wanting to know how the chicken lived was pretty right on. LOL
