The Lifting Diaries: Wut

Dear Diary, I've come up with a new way to combat staring in the gym. It doesn't bother me as much as it did before, but it's still irritating to feel eyes burning into your back...and sometimes your backside. My new battle strategy is called the "wut." It's a face, personally my favorite, and it's … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: Wut


Ran out of pre-workout…now what?

Right foot forward, right foot back. Left foot forward, left foot back. Now shake, shake, shake. Open and sip.I always did that dance, accompanied with a joker grin, when taking my pre-workout. I couldn't help it--it made me excited even before my first sip.But now I'm out of my little tub of pump and I'm … Continue reading Ran out of pre-workout…now what?

The Lifting Diaries: Cravings

Dear Diary, Ever since I've been home, eating healthier and much cleaner has been a breeze. Well kind of. You see, all of my meals are delicious, yet simple and nutritious. But about once a month, around that time--alright, the period cravings. They make eating good soooo difficult. Around this time last month, I was … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: Cravings

After my 8 minutes were up, I hit snooze about 3 more times...woops. I was pretty sore from the workout the day before, and my feet were left behind in … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: Progress Pics are a Virtue

Dear Diary, I got a new sports bra!  It's from Target, and it's reversible! I'm totally obsessed. It fits me just right and accentuates my small boobs--wait. Scratch that, it doesn't really accentuate my itty bitty boobs, it actually makes them smaller. When I found out my boobs weren't growing any more, I learned to accept … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: The IBTC

My Fat Ankle, I Love Thee

I never paid much attention to my ankles. The only time they'd get attention is when I would somehow hit them on an extremely hard object. And might I add that wasn't pleasant. It wasn't until last year that something weird began to happen to my left ankle. It was a monstrosity. It was a … Continue reading My Fat Ankle, I Love Thee

The Lifting Diaries: Yes, I’m Really Pumped

Dear Diary, Just last week, I started taking a pre-workout drink by BPI Sports. And when I say it gave me a boost, I mean it. I flew around the track like Flash (uh, did I mention I'm not a runner?) After that I did some other warm ups. Working out in the mornings weren't … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: Yes, I’m Really Pumped
