Clean dog and pull-ups
It's hot today. Not killer hot, but hot. It's 87* with a heat index of 92*. I decided this would be a good day to bathe The Dog...she stinks!
The first step in bathing the dog is finding the doggie shampoo. Except I can't. I have NO CLUE where it is. This might be in part due to the fact that we have not bathed her since we moved here, so, of course I have no idea where it is. I resort to the next best thing...shampoo. It's The Husband's shampoo, and I know he won't mind. (Actually, it's hotel shampoo, so no one will mind!)
After I bathed the dog, I kinda felt like being out in the garage some more. No idea why. So, I decided to sweep out the garage. It's mostly clean because of the gym and all (which reminds me...I never posted phase 2 of the gym. I'll get to that soon.) The loft is about half done. The pull-up bar is there. I looked at it and decided to give it a try.
Guess what! I pulled myself up! It wasn't a "chest to bar" pull up or anything like that...more like a "I think my nose is even with the bar" pull-up, but I did it...no jump or anything. Then, a bit later, feeling pretty full of myself, I decided to give it another go. This time, I got my chin up there. Keep in mind, I'm not the smallest gal in the world, so I'm pretty darned impressed that I sort of did two whole pull-ups...unassisted!
