Prostitute Romance Heroes

Somebody had to write this post...Just a Gigolo...Romance Hero.

I went to the gym last night, after four days off (weekend + haircut + trip to NYC). I had not suddenly gained five pounds or become weak and breathless! I lifted weights (mostly upper body), did a very few ab exercises, and finished with cardio. I'm currently waiting for a book about women and weightlifting to arrive, so I can maybe step it up a little, or change my routine. I'd like to do a trainer again, but can't afford it right now. It will take me a while to work through the book once it arrives, I hope. Currently, I'm trying to lift weights twice a week, msotly doing two sets of ten on the different machines; if it's starting to feel easier, I up the weight for five reps on one of the sets. I did that last night, for all but the Shoulder Press.
