Hey everyone it has been awhile since I blogged but I am still on my journey to getting healthy.
I am one of those people who enjoy strength training. A long long time ago I date a man who was a personal trainer and he introduced me to the weights. (I feel in love, with the weights that is LOL LOL)
I use to work out at the gym with him all the time and he would have me lifting weights like he would. For awhile there I was really buffed, but not a good buffed. I got to a point where I could not put my arms down and my chest was very hard. It was very uncomfortable but I felt strong. Well I stop the weight training then the rest is history. I was in a motor cycle accident and had broken my clavicle, fractured my shoulder blade, and yes a bunched of ribs.
After that I would just dabble with the weights but with this new journey I am on, I am back with the weights. I started lifting 10 - 15 lbs but it didn't feel like it was doing much. So I continued to add more and more weights.
So now I am lifting anywhere from 75lbs on the chest press to 112lbs on the rowing machine. I am excited because I would start the strength and only do it a day or two then I would be crying to my sister that my (old broken) bones hurt.
With this new healthy life style I am not having that problem anymore. I am doing higher levels on the ETD, lifting more weights eating better and enjoying many things I haven't in a long time. Once in a while the old broken ankle still hurts but I just keep trucking on.
So guys wish me luck on my new direction on my journey. I want to get strong enough to do a marathon, not sure how far but I know I want to complete one.
