Body for Life update

I worked out my upper body this morning. I'm still building into the proper weight for chest and shoulders; both of those sessions were too light today. However, I'm maxed out now on triceps and biceps--maybe over doing it a little. I'm sore as hell right now. But it's probably good; I do want to push myself hard.

I started this stuff on April 9th. If I count out the 12 weeks, I should see "results" on July 2nd. Not that I plan to quit after 12 weeks--it is supposed to be Body for Life. The coolness of a new program is starting to wear off. I still look forward to the workouts, but today, I decided to put on some tunes (Sirius Spectrum) to keep myself entertained. I'm also getting better at transitioning through the sets, adding the weights and staying on track without getting too far behind. I knew that would come with practice.

My schedule is not the ideal for the BFL schedule. The aerobic days don't strictly alternate with the weight days, but I'm bound to my USMS schedule. Also, my USMS swims are 90 minutes, not 20 minutes, but again, I'm bound. I'm happy with it, though, as long as I try to swim really hard, it should suffice. And at least I'm not doing weights two days in a row, which would be bad. Here's how my schedule has shaped up:
