I finally finished the first set of exercises and have moved on to the second set. My glutes are quite sore today, as are my arms! I can only lift 2 days a week max due to my dance class schedule, but I'm hoping I'll continue to improve and strength anyway and maintain my muscle mass as I slowwwwwly lose weight.
