That is so awesome!

I have a little over 130 lbs that I want to lose, and you are an inspiration!

I started working out this week. We have a pretty nice gym at work, but I've only been doing 30 min when I go up there because I don't want to overdo it. I've found that the treadmill hurts my back, so I ditched that and have been doing the eliptical and stationary bike. I want to do strength training but would prefer to do that at home.

SHOULDAHS

I couldn't find my post about shoulders so I just decided to make a video with some of my fave shoulder exercises in it. Just about everything here can be done with dumbbells but I also get my bar out and show how to do them with a barbell.



It's fourteen minutes. You got fourteen minutes.


(No I do not usually work out in my blue jeans, I just didn't feel like putting on workout pants.)

Beanie that is awesome, and exactly what I needed for winter exercises. I don't want to risk my bow warping in the cold weather here, but I'm trying to up my draw weight, and to do that I need better shoulder and back muscles, so I was trying to think of something to do indoors to protect my bow, and to work on my shoulder/back muscles.

I was considering buying some resistance bands, but Steven pointed out that if I'm mimicking the action of drawing the bow, I may end up developing undesirable technique when I go back to shooting. I'd like to be up to a thirty pound draw weight in six months or so, and right now I'm at half that.

Also, I think that shoulder muscles and arm muscles on women are sexy too, and I had no idea you were so ripped It looks good, and I'd like to look like than, instead of like a stick

Once again I wish I could like your post or give it a thumbs up or something.

Beanie - great vid! It shows some great stuff and isn't "scary" for the beginners.

And at the risk of sounding like a creepy old stalker man - sexy arms

----------------------

Just got in from a late night run. Went 4.75 miles in 40 minutes (8:25 pace roughly). I'm really, really enjoying the running again. Especially now that it's getting cooler. Brisk air filling my lungs, hitting the road and forgetting everything but, well, the road. Plus I get to dress is bright, loud colors without anyone judging me

Forgot to come back and say that I'm giving this a go. I had my bridal shower last weekend, my Mom hasn't seen me since I started doing CrossFit and the first thing she said was that my face is so much skinnier. That's usually the first place I lose weight, but in this case, I have gained 5 lbs, not lost any LOL

I got attacked by my skipping rope and rolled my ankle during the second phase of my metabolic test today. Still finished the third phase though and beat my score! I would've beat my phase two score if I hadn't been mauled by wire and plastic.

It still hurts like a mofo. Oh well.

Instead of jumping your feet straight back, you jump your legs to one side... then the next burpee, you jump your legs to the other side. So you get to work obliques too!

I went to the Dr today and turns out I haven't been officially measured in about 10 years. That means I am 1" taller than I've been telling everyone forever...which puts me into the healthy range for BMI instead of Overweight
