Needed a break...

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

No, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth...just took a little break.

I suppose a lot of folks get so gung ho in the beginning, and then kind of wipe themselves out. I got just a little "oversparked."

But, I'm here after a very busy two weeks.

I have started strength training - and MAN!! - I am feeling muscles I didn't know I owned (and some I forgot were renting space! : ) ).

After I get over the initial workout and subsequent pain-filled, oh-my-God-I-cannot-get-up-and-
why-am-I-doing-this period - I feel quite good.

Only three weight training sessions in, I am noticing wonderful changes. Just last weekend, Tim and I hiked a .30-mile uphill-all-the-way thigh burner. I did great!! Those "skier's lunges" really paid off.

Looking forward to seeing and feeling the positive changes that weights can bring!

Many blessings and a happy ST. PATTY'S DAY!

    There are indeed times that I get 'over-sparked'. What matters is that you rest and then return. Doesn't sound like you've been away though just busy!

    Lunge away!
