I was doing bicep curls, and I think I only had a 5 lb weight on the machine, but Paul pointed to my engorged baby muscle and told me that was called the pump! I'm still not convinced that I like strength training, but I guess I am now one step closer to ripping my sleeves when I flex and crushing melons with my thighs. I am not sure that either of those things ranks very highly on any list of life goals I might have, but it's good to keep my options open.

Time I woke up: 8:00 I think?
