"Why do you like them so much? Because they stand upon a wall and say, "Nothing's going to hurt you tonight, not on my watch."- A Few Good Men
Ok so last week I weighed 166 lbs and today I weigh 163.6-I've lost 2.4 lbs. I can't believe it, and I'm not even sure how I lost that much. Considering I only rode the bike once last week-I know bad Jesse, but hey I'm trying.
Last week I was asked about women gaining muscle mass. Here is what I know *I'm no expert*
You can gain muscle by weight training and no women will not look like men by lifting weights. As for losing fat you have to do some type of aerobic exercise. A good way to tell how much you're losing is not by what the scales says although it does make me happy; it's checking how much you've lost in inches. Which is something I have yet to do, so since I'm writing about it I will write down my measurements sometime today.
I'm also sure many of you know the benefits to exercising-again I'm saying this for my benefit since I know the pros and have yet to really motivate myself.
Reduced chance of a heart attack
Reduced chance of osteoporosis
Reduced chance of breast cancer
Increased strength and stamina
I have a really good book called "The Body Sculpting Bible for Women." It has a lot of useful exercises for people who can not go to a gym. Again I have a gym membership that I don't use and David will be so kind to remind me about it from time-to-time. But if you have any type of workout videos those can be very helpful. I don't know if I cleared up any questions but if you have any more or would like some exercises just give me a holler. Have a great day and keep up the good work ladies. :)
