I love lifting weights it is such an empowering thing for a women to come up to a barbell and know she can lift over 100lbs off the floor. Wonder women here i come! Honestly when i started my weightloss journey i didn't lift weights at all. I started with cardio like treadmills, bikes and any machine i could find. Great for endurance but doesn't do much for strength. I know a lot of women don't think we need a lot of strength or think that will make you look bulky or grow muscles in places you didn't even know you had them. Trust me ladies strong is the new skinny.
They're listening. The little ones who whine that they want a snack, need help going potty, want you to pick them up...put them down....The little ones whos tears can break your heart and smiles lift you to the moon. They're listening...to every word you say.
My attention this week was caught by the article from “Essence” magazine, written by Jeannine Amber. The name of the article intrigued me – “The new science of weight loss”. Good, it is very relevant to me, because I am working on it every day!

So you're entering 40+ this year. So What! Really, age is just a number. When you physically feel 35 and you emotionally feel 25 and you spiritually feel, well you get it. The sky is the limit. I want each and every one of you to know that no matter how old you are, you can always start again. Be fit, be healthy and never give up. Look at this 60 year old. YES 60!!!
