The Lifting Diaries: When Photoshop Meets Fitspo

Dear Diary, Much of my inspiration for getting out of bed in the morning is because of Instagram. I've turned into a follow junkie. I follow a lot of lady lifters, as well as accounts that post a lot of inspiration pictures. I guess you could say I've been submerged into the world of Fitspo. … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: When Photoshop Meets Fitspo

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?)

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: “Why do you eat so much?”

Deary Diary, As you know, I have been lifting weights for about two months. And within those two months, my appetite has increased--a lot. I usually ate, what some people say, "normally" but now it's on the next level. Well, I shouldn't say people called my eating before normal. Being a vegetarian, people assume I … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: “Why do you eat so much?”
