Today feels like an easy day compared to yesterday. Taught my 1 hour step class and ended with 20 minutes of weights for upper body and abs. Just too hot and muggy in the room to keep stepping.


Today's mini goals...water and fruits and veggies.


Went out for lunch and had a weight management salad. I think all my servings of veggies were in that huge salad from the Cheesecake factory...I was a virgin..first time there. Would you believe I still only went to Cracker Barrel once and that was in Asheville. LOL!

That's an easy day????? Wish I could take your classes. Grace, will walking on the treadmill at a higher incline do more to tone my thighs? I

First of all Patty, your picture of the pumpkin pie is killing me ... thanks alot...LOL!


Doing the treadmill on an incline will make your hamstrings work harder. Pretty sure is gets the glutes too. It is also a good way to work harder without going faster. The only thing you have to worry about on an incline is if you have a bad back, could strain it some. Since I can't run...my insides feel like they are falling out, I usually put the incline up. Also my legs are so darn short, I can't walk any faster to make it harder.

Keep on keeping on!
