I have new muscles!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007

Okay, I suppose they're the same muscles I've always had, but it's been a while since they made their presence known. But after just a couple of weeks of going to Curves (and watching what I eat), I can feel - and flex - my abs! I can feel the difference controlling my abs makes to other exercises on the machines at Curves. It's awesome to get on a machine and suddenly find it a LOT easier to do the movement than it was last time. And I'm pretty strong of arm anyway, but I can feel a difference in those, too.

Things I can do (or do better) since I started going to Curves:

- Hunker down to pick something up (or play with a puppy!) and get back up (groaning optional). I hate the squat machine, but this is worth it.
- Lift and carry grocery bags
- Lift my bike off and on the bike rack on the car
- Sit up straight in my chair at work

It's little things like this that remind me that the scale is only one measure of my success at this weight lass thing. Yay!
