292, 291 & Day 290! Whew..

It’s been a busy last few days with work, but I’m off now until Monday and THEN..I’m down to just 24 hours a week! I have been spending a lot of time learning about various different lifting techniques and incorporating some new stuff into my workouts here and there. I may post some of the stuff I write in the form of a question, but for the most part,  I know what it is that I’m doing, how it’s gets done and what I want out of a particular exercise. There are so many various schools of thoughts on fitness, how one should achieve maximum fitness,how one should work out,how heavy one should or should not lift and where cardio fits in. I say read a lot, learn a lot and then do what you feel is best for you. There is no perfect cookie cutter way of getting fit, just so long as you are seeing progress and feeling good!

I personally, don’t like the bulky look and I realize that a lot of women do. That’s fine, but this is my blog, my writing and my opinion. So you may read some stuff that I may post and want to get defensive or defend your beliefs against mine, and that’s fine. Just so long as YOU know that these are MY thoughts. So yes, I think some women get too bulky and end up looking like dudes. There I said it. There is NOTHING wrong with a strong powerful woman! Nothing! I just don’t prefer to be powerful AND LOOK like a dude. I still want the feminitity about me. What I do know is that it does take a LOT to get big and bulky, so one should not be afraid to lift heavier than what your used to. I am slowly upping my weights accordingly to get the desired results I’m looking for. I tend to be a little OCD, so I just need to be careful that this does not consume my life. What I like about only lifting 5 days a week is that it does not give me the opportunity to get so overy involved in it all. It allows me to find the balance between exercise, family, work and the rest of my life. I won’t spend hours at a time working out and I certainly won’t obsess over a missed workout.  I tend to get whatever workout I have planned for a day done in about 20-30 minutes. I get the job done. My running/cardio is probably what takes the most time, but that is fine, because I secretly still try to put the running first. There are people who feel that if your not lifting for at least xx amount of time, you’re doing something wrong, OR you’re not working out hard enough. Bullshit. Seriously. Bullshit.

Anyway..
