I Pre’d! (My Review of BPI Sports Pre-Training Powder)

In my last post,¬†I mentioned that BodyBuilding.com sent me a few goodies with the protein that I ordered. One of those items was a pre-training powder by BPI Sports and after much debating, I decided to give it a try. The instructions say to take the powder 15-30 minutes before training. My original plan was … Continue reading I Pre’d! (My Review of BPI Sports Pre-Training Powder)

The Lifting Diaries: In the Mirror Straight Flexing

Dear Diary, I think I've moved past the awkwardness I once felt in the weight room. I mean, there are times when I'm the only girl but it doesn't bother me anymore. Especially since (mostly) everyone is pretty focused on their workout. Recently I've gotten into the habit of standing in front of the mirror … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: In the Mirror Straight Flexing

The Lifting Diaries: Battle Scars

Dear Diary, During a conversation with my friend the other day, the topic of hands came up (not sure how that happened). Anyhow, he said that if a woman has soft hands, that's extremely attractive. I disagreed. If someone's hands aren't soft doesn't mean they're not attractive. Mid-conversation, as I usually do, I rubbed my … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: Battle Scars

The Lifting Diaries: Runaway Abs

Dear Diary, Just a few minutes ago I noticed my "abs"... okay, my 1.5 pack, wasn't showing anymore! ¬†Earlier in the day I felt like mini bubbles were being blown, but I ignored it.

The Lifting Diaries: I’m Not Possessed, I Swear

But, I noticed two things they would do: grunt and contort their faces. Happily killing it (or so I … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: I’m Not Possessed, I Swear

The Lifting Diaries: The Struggle

Dear Diary, I've been back at school for exactly two weeks. And you know what that means? That I'm also back to eating school food. May I add that it's extremely hard to stick to clean eating when there are limited options. (I'm also a vegetarian so things get pretty redundant.) I can easily map … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: The Struggle

The Lifting Diaries: Lesson Learned

Dear Diary, Recently, I've been creating my workouts before going to the gym. Not only does it save me time, but my brain isn't at full capacity in the early mornings. When I got to the gym, I started with dumbbell flys. Now, let me first say that I haven't done those in a month...and … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: Lesson Learned
