Day 77.

Despite my exhaustion rant from Day 76 and staying up until 11p getting cleaned up and preparing for the upcoming work day, I did manage to make it into the gym at 530a this morning and got a decent workout in. It made me feel much better.

I focused on a quick leg workout this morning to keep the muscles fired up from last nights class. And I have no intentions of being all purposely vain when I say this but I am actually liking how my legs have began to take on a muscular shape and tone like I've never seen before. I think I'm actually beginning to get 'dancers legs'. Its neat to be able to actually 'see' individual muscles and muscle groups and actually watch them perform during dance routines + workouts.

I've really noticed a development of the definition in my quads. I'm not entirely used to seeing these bulbous upper leg muscles. While it kind of freaks me out in a way, its also exciting to actually take notice of them. On a TMI side note - all this new definition has made shaving my legs much more interesting to say the least....  Anyway, I can't wait to see the continued progress in these next months and how far I can push my 'comfort zone' limits and grow from that.
