    I suppose the thing to do is set say, another month of building muscle, and then take a month or two for trying to lose those five pounds? And then I can go back to growing muscle more if I want to? Maybe I should post this in the weight-lifting forums, but that seems so geared towards people (especially men) who want to grow really big muscles.
    There is a woman who posts in the men section, but I'm not sure what her goal is. Her name is Jenn, so why don't you check out her diary and see what she's doing.

    Hi She,
    I have seen Jenn's posts-- I think she looks amazing, but I don't want to get as muscular as she is. I think her goal was to be able to lift more than 200-something pounds and to get 15-inch biceps. I think that's great but it's not quite what I'm going for. I'm an ectomorph and have (had) very, very little muscle tone, my arms look(ed) like twigs basically. I want to get SOME muscle, but I'm not looking to become a fitness model. Though you're right, I'll look through some more old posts to see if I can get some ideas.

    Hey SlimSadie,
    Funny you should mention that I've been looking to buy a body brush for dry skin brushing. I had one years ago but only used it occasionally, just because I heard it was good for circulation.

    I'm going to get one and use it, why not? It's not expensive and you only have to buy it once. Even if it doesn't help cellulite, it's good for exfoliation!

    If you have a link I'd be interested to see it.

    No, the Billy Blanks still didn't come! They said I should have it by August 18th, and today is August 18th...and still no Billy! The mail system here can be pretty bad. I'll give it another week before I contact Amazon to send another one (hopefully they will if the DVD has gotten lost in the mail).

    Thanks for the links, Sadie! Still no Billy Blanks! Boo hoo! I hope a neighbor didn't swipe it from our mailbox (we live in an apt building and there are no locks on the boxes).

    Things have been moving along-- I'm trying to get better on track of things so today I made a chart on paper to keep track of how often I exercise-- you know, the days of the week at the top, upper/abs/lower/cardio etc along the left side, checkmarks after I do something.

    Today I was climbing up steep stairs at an old fortress in town and at the top my husband asked me if I needed a rest, I said no, and he said, "Well I do" and he had to stop for a few minutes to take it easy. Usually the two of us get tired out at the same time so it must be a result of my exercising that my endurance has gotten better.

    Let's see, what else? Oh yeah I have to start exercising first thing after I get up because otherwise I put it off and put it off. Sometimes I'm exercising after midnight.

    Congrats and it sounds like your hubby need to start exercising too.

    Ha! I think you're right, She.
    He is a walking maniac-- he can walk for hours and hours and has the leg muscles to prove it (he takes long walks every day)-- but I do think it would be better if he tried to up the aerobic intensity a little. Sometimes I don't walk with him because he likes to stroll instead of really trying to burn some calories-- but he will stroll for a loooooong time. Maybe when I'm not with him he walks faster, who knows!

    Today I did the advanced upper arm workout on my DVD, and did some abs work. Walked too...tried to make it brisk.

    I've been slacking a little on keeping track of calories-- mostly because I've been skeptical of how accurate it is. I guess maybe a kitchen scale would be the way to be more accurate with keeping track?

    Buy a food scale. That's pretty accurate.
