Week 3: May 21-27

"Someday - and that day may never come - I'll call upon you to do a service for me. But until that day, accept this justice as gift on my daughter's wedding day." 

"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.

  1. Increased energy

  2. Better self-esteem

  3. Reduced chance of a heart attack

  4. Reduced chance of osteoporosis

  5. Reduced chance of breast cancer

  6. Increased strength and stamina

  7. Less depression 

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. :)

Ok someone left a message about how they liked my blog and I tried to approve it but me being not always so computer savy accidently deleted it. Whew that was a run-on sentence. I'm really sorry and if you could please re-comment and this time I will get it right-again I'm really sorry and I wasn't trying to be a snob or anything-I PROMISE!

That's funny I've only watched the Godfather in the last six months or so and I knew that quote too! It was a great movie!
Can I just say how brave I think you are for posting your weight on your blog? Way to go on losing the pounds!
