Weekend Round Up

I’ve had both a busy and sad week so I’m going to revisit some past posts.  We were out of state for the funeral of a dear uncle who died at the age of 81 from cancer.   He continued to golf and ski to nearly the end (“Because That’s What Old People Do”) and still had bags packed with ski gear for a trip to Vail that he couldn’t take in ’12 but planned to take in January of ’13.

Big Thank Yous!

 I did it! I competed last Saturday in my first NPC bikini contest. I placed 5th in my category- but I felt like a champion just by walking on stage that day.

The advice giver at the gym.

Don't you all love getting unsolicited advise from others working out. For example somebody will say wow your trying to lose weight drink green tea ten times a day.

They take these words as gospel instead or reading the study itself. I have seen studies with a sample population of 20 or conducted on mice or other specimens but untested on humans. They key is that every human body is different and react different to stimulus.
