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

The Lifting Diaries: The IBTC

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

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

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. But it got so bad and uncomfortable, that I thought I'd float off. I find it weird because I've been eating … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: Runaway Abs

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

Dear Diary, It's been brought to my attention that the heavier I lift, the stranger my faces get. Before I got into lifting weights, I would observe other people (not in a creepy way, 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
