I completed 4 weightlifing sessions and 4 cardio sessions. A good week. To complete my 4 day workout split, I have to work out two consecutive days in a row once a week. I usually work upper body on day 1, and legs on day 2. I was pretty wiped out after last week's consecutive days of working out. I have to do a better job of getting more sleep and/or naps on the two days that I decide to work out consecutively.
I am pleased with the results of my arm workouts. At this point, I am not putting bulk on my arms. Instead, the definition of my arms now looks better than it has in the past. So, my 4 day split seems to be working for my arms.

It looks like I may be out of town on business the first week of April, so I would like to get my taxes completed before the end of March. I usually get a refund, but I still seem to wait until the last minute. It is hard to break tradition (actually procrastination).
After I got my first real job many moons ago, I could get away with filing the 1040EZ form. Well, things have changed since then. I have to itemize my deductions now because I am home owner (along with my mortgage company) and I actually invest my money versus spending money or not knowing how to invest money. So, how far did I get with my 2006 taxes? I completed Schedule B and stopped at line 13 on form 1040 and Schedule D. I can only work on my taxes for so long before I need a break. And this post is part of a much needed break.

Update, 5/30/2007: Today was Rebecca Hower's last day on KDKA TV. It was announced this morning on the early news broadcast. Good Luck and Best Wishes to Rebecca Hower. KDKA TV posted a news item on their website about Rebecca's departure.
Today is a sad day in Western Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette is reporting that KDKA Meteorologist Rebecca Hower is leaving on May 30. Her husband, a gastroenterologist, has accepted a job in her hometown of Erie.
Rebecca Hower is my favorite female local TV personality. She is the ultimate combination of beauty, brains, and personality. She looks fabulous, even after having two children. She stated she will be taking a year off from work to spend more time with her children.
I have a married female friend whose husband works, while she is a stay at home mother for their 3 year old daughter. My friend really cherishes the time she spends with her daughter. If you have the opportunity and finances to be a stay at home mother, do so. It is precious time that only happens once.
Yes, I am sad that Rebecca Hower is leaving. But I am happy that she will be able to spend more time with her children.
