Ya girl went in! I wish the Bicep Emoji could be inserted here. That’s how I felt. Also, I am on this new meal plan and so far so good. I haven’t felt hungry since 6am. I meal prepped for 3 days since I will be going out of town for the weekend and I am sure I can maintain my little plan when the weekend hits. I just have to pack the non-perishables and possibly purchase some perishables. Here goes one of my meals I believe this is meal 3.

Tomorrow I will get some cardio in and probably do some light work on Saturday whenever I get to my destination. Happy Friday Eve everybody!

 

Women and weightlifting?

Yes, ladies we can weight lift. Tribesports has an awesome article out about weightlifting and we want to challenge you in your fitness endeavours to lift it up!
Weightlifting is not meant to bulk you up like a guy, but to tone and accentuate those lovely muscles you have! Trust me I thought the same thing, ” Oh my goodness if I lift weights, I am going to look like a man!” No, that’s not true. You would have to have a strict protein regimen in order to look like that and ladies, I love my carbs, so that isn’t happening over here. Check out the article here (A good read!!!). Nia Shanks the author of the article, is a woman, who lifts, and is anything but bulky. She encourages all of her clients to lift at least their body weight if not more. It can be done! So I am here to challenge you to get lifted!!!
