and I won't quote the rest (awkward).
I can't even begin to express this newfound feeling I have for the gym.
I set a goal, years ago, to someday be a fitness competitor. I signed up and in less than a year, I will be.
Right now I'm in the BULKING stage. I'm trying to gain muscle after years of running and not fueling myself properly.
I was always sitting at 110lbs and anything over made me feel "fat." I know now how dumb that sounds. So, in the meantime, I've gained about 7 lbs and I'm thickening up in areas of badonka donk. Haha!
All of this meal plans, not so much cardio, and a "lift heavy" plan is new to me. I've had to retrain my brain on fuel and wean myself away from all the cardio.
I can say I've enjoyed every bit of it.
I freaking love squats, deadlifts, and leg press. I always wanted to do them but feared the main gym where all the "meatheads" are, haha. I changed gyms, got a trainer/coach, and got bold. It was that first step that was the hardest. Everyday since then, I go in like I own the place and lay it down.
The PUMP, as Arnold calls it, is life altering!

|Delts, tris, and bis...oh my!|
|Squats are up to 90lbs and I'm working on getting lower.|
