New Goal

I have a new healthy goal. I no longer want to be a waif (though sometimes I still want to cry when watching Star Trek) - but I want to get super fit. I've been envying people with visible muscles lately - especially in the arm/shoulder area. And I know for a fact that some of my posture/pain problems I've been having lately are due to the super weak abs I've been left with after 3 rapid-succession pregnancies. I want to gain more endurance and energy (not less, which is what happens when you starve yourself) so I can keep up with my kids and not fall into bed dead-tired every night. So it's time to up the cardio AND up the resistance, add in the sit-ups, and love those tricep-dips. If anyone has any great strength-training advice (esp how to do it without hitting the gym) let me know! Thanks :D

  1. I too lately have been envying those with visible muscles and have been hitting the weights(that I purchased from Target)and doing push-ups to build the muscles in my arms. Also hoping will tighten the loose skin I've been left with on the back of my arms since my weight loss. The walking, lunges and squats have helped my legs a lot! And bonus, none require the gym :)
