Going through another one of those periods where all I wanna do is curl up in bed. I feel like I could sleep forever, yet I spend most of the night in such a light sleep…almost like I am still in a state of awareness. Also I have such restless energy in my mind but my body drags. Hopefully its just the weather.

Love the title! I have to agree with the previous posters: you’re already there. I’ll be following along.

I really had to talk my fiancée in to lifting instead of just doing cardio but one of the ways I did it was when we went to the gym I asked her where all the good looking girls who she would like to look like are… they were never on a treadmill… and there are plenty of pics of chicks who lift and chicks who diet and the comparison is never close… she gets it now… keep up there good work!!

Thank you! And that was a great idea! The curves built by muscle trumps all :slight_smile: Totally a different body comp then the cardio bunnies!


Had some wonderful wonderful news and was just starting to feel better about the direction of life when another curveball was thrown our way. Does anyone else ever feel that they are speeding down a highway and needing to handle the curves and bumps as best as possible just to make it through and never get a chance to slow down and enjoy the scenery? I feel so banged up! Ugh…big decisions in the making again. Business is for the birds I tell ya!

I decided to work on Snatch today…random and fun. I have no idea what I am doing and went with it :slight_smile: It was that or loose my glue.

In other news I can see quad definition when I walk now! lol not because I have lowered BF that much but I think its because I have built them up enough that they show through regardless. I have always wanted that :slight_smile: Now I just need to have that distinctive bump in the middle!

Snatch
