Got Muscles?

Sunday, February 06, 2011

I am growing some muscles! WooHoo! I have been noticing my biceps & shoulders a lot the past week or so. When I just accidentally touch them, I'm shocked at what I feel. And, when I look in the mirror, I love what I see! Muscles!

Not only are my arms getting stronger, I noticed yesterday the beginning of some definition on my stomach... my abs! I did take some photos, but am not yet comfortable showing myself in a sports bra. I've always been pretty modest! Anyway, I can see these two shadows where there are indents on either side of my stomach. Amazing!!!

I joined the "Strength Training Challenges" team a few weeks ago and have been concentrating more on strength training: especially pushups, planks, and working on being able to do a pullup/chinup. It's paying off!!!

If you are working on building muscles, I encourage you to take some photographs TODAY so you can see the difference LATER! Have fun!!!

(I hope you can find the group here:

    Very cool! I am obsessed with my arms lately too - you can see all these muscles popping up and I don't feel like I really "earned" them. haha I wish my other body parts were that easy.

I was shocked when I saw on your page that you are 40. I seriously thought you were in your 20's - you look great!

    ST may not always be fun (but then again, neither is running, cycling, swimming, etc), but it sure does pay off! Your arms look so toned! Keep it up!!!
