“Are you going to be able to walk tomorrow?” I haven’t seen a back workout like that!!!”

“Who me?”

“Yeah!!”

“Well Umm.. I’ve got a strong back….”

Oh my gosh!! I am crackin up now. Lol!!

Unbeknownst to me, this guy (well constructed I must say) was watching me workout. Following the principle of switching things up, I did a workout that I found here.

I was focusing just like AR taught me… Mind body connection and zeroing in on the working muscle.

When this guy approached, he totally caught me by surprise. He was respectful, unlike some guys, who don’t know what to say to women and make ridiculous comments that make you really wanna slap the ish out of them. Lol!

This was the first time I combined back and biceps, but I enjoyed the workout.

 This “sample workout” was a challenge but I felt great doing it.  I am so happy Vanessa Tib Fitness shares her workouts with the rest of us!

Igniting A Flame

I am building a fire,

and every day I train,

I add more fuel,

At just the right moment,

I light the match.

Today was back day.

On the cables, I did three sets of the Lat Pulldown. The last two sets, I graduated to 90 pounds!  I’m getting stronger and my back is growing!

Another PR (personal record) for me. 🙂

This afternoon, I lit the match!

Oh, the momentum!  I can’t wait until Thursday!

Don’t give up on your dreams.  Just keep it moving!

Sweet dreams!

Starting Friday’s 5:30 p.m. work out with an intense row was right up my alley.  Cardio baby!  I just can’t get enough. Loved every minute of it!

Yesterday while I was rowing my little heart out, unbeknown to me, my picture was being taken.   Not bad for an action shot!  I’m told that my back “is beautiful,”  “is ripped,” and  “looks great,” but I haven’t really checked it out.

My results are from eating clean (90% of the time) and consistently working out.  My big cheat… 337!!   According to medical studies, red wine contains resveratrol, which may be good for the heart— in moderation of course.  Okay- this isn’t a wine ad, so I’m done.   But really, if you enjoy a good “Cab,”  I suggest you give it a taste.

Anyway, I need to hurry along in this post.  Tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m., I’m working on this lovely back of mine.  Ahh yes, it’s only going to get better.  I’m excited!

Real quick!  Today was my first time taking the 5:30 p.m. class.  Well!  I looked around and I was the only female in the box.  Did I miss the memo?  LOL!

Working out with the fellas is highly motivating for me and it doesn’t matter if I’m running, shooting hoops or anything else.   I’m a subtle competitor who is joyful when I beat a guy at anything!  Sprinting it out across the finish line at the end of a 10-mile run in front of some guy who can’t catch me is an incredible high!  LOL!    Seriously though, guys you are encouraging!

I have to get some rest for tomorrow’s work out.

Sweet Dreams!
