Well today was One on One with ASH doing shoulders and arms MC2. Muscle Confusion using lighter weights than Tony Horton.  I used the 5 lb dumbells for definition of shoulders and 15 and 20 lb dumb bells for others.  I did not have 85 pound dumb bell with shoulders on balance ball using one dumbbell for lifting up from behind to above head and then lowering behind head almost to floor.  for this i used the 20 lb weight, probably a good idea, first time doing this on balance ball avoiding dropping on head.   The shoulders feel more relaxed now not tight or sore.

One of my goals is Slim my thighs.  Any suggestions?  I found the following from someone's blog:

"When you want to lose weight in your thighs, you will want to do a combination of running, jogging, sprinting, jump roping and jumping jacks to help challenge the core muscle groups in the upper thigh area.  When these are combined with a weight training regiment, it is possible to lose a significant amount of fat in a short period of time. 
Sample exercises that can be incorporated into an interval training regimen include cycles of:
  • Alternating running at a fast pace with jogging at a medium pace for 1 minute each
  • Sprinting for 30 seconds then running for 1 minute
  • Fast-paced walking for 1 minute followed by sprinting for 30 seconds
  • Jogging at a medium pace for 1 minute then sprinting for 30 seconds
Other cardiovascular exercises that can help you lose weight from the thighs include:
  • Short bursts of high-resistance elliptical training
  • Interval training on a stationary bike (spinning)
  • Jump roping for 1-2 minute sessions, alternated with jogging in place
  • Swimming
  • Fast-paced walking (speed walking) for 20 minute intervals, 2 x per day
  • Trampoline jumping"

well I can do jogging, sprinting, swimming, walking, jump roping and spinning at home.  swimming requires a trip to the Beach....
