So it is time to get serious. Well, as serious as I can be!! A few of you know me already because I'm a regular over at Get a Life. My name is Cara, I just turned 35 a few weeks ago (tear), and I've been lifting sporadically since 2001. I had a great start with a good trainer who taught me alot. Unfortunately, I'm not good at putting myself first. I have been hiding behind the "My daughter needs me" excuse for awhile now.
Now that she is a teenager, I can concentrate on myself more. I was also drinking two times a week and it was starting to take over my life. I've been on the wagon for six weeks now and feel great. (^:
I'm not going to lie, I'm a total wannabe Powerful Women!! My numbers are stinkier then a dirty hooker on a hot summer day. The two things I am focused on right now is my bench press which is only 85 lbs and squatting which is only the bar or 20 lbs added. I know that sounds messed up cause my squat weight is lower but due to an operation for a bleeding cyst at the beginning of the year I don't want to chance a hernia.
I am trying to get my form down and stop using the mirror. My chain is really weak right now. I will post more details later, I don't believe in long winded posts!!
