The New Rules of Lifting for Women

Tomorrow I'm starting stage one of this bad boy:

To say that I've become addicted to training would be an understatement. I feel like it's made a huge difference in my running and my body. In January I started lifting three times a week. My brother made me two plans and I just alternated them. Around March he switched them up a little for me. Then last month I did three new plans that a trainer made me (I won some free training sessions). I mostly took last week off, minus one training session with my little brother while I was in KY.

Now I'm going to give this plan a try. It has three stages and I really enjoyed reading the book. It seems like the author understands that there are women out there that want to lift and push themselves.

I'll keep you all updated with how it goes.

Along with my new found love of lifting I've developed another love:

Taking awkward self portraits. Syntha-6 protein powder. It's not chunky. It tastes like a chocolate milk shake. LOVE.

And just because it made me so proud, I have to share this with you all. Look what my awesome brother said on FB last week:

Having him say that meant the world to me, cause he's a BOSS in the gym.


Hope you all have a great Monday!

  10. I need inspiration for strength training!!!!! I like it but it's not my favorite thing to do, I find myself wanting to do other cross training instead even though I know I need to do strength training.
