I love weights

I'm so naughty. I haven't got the okay from my Dr yet but I've started a bit of weight lifting... I'm being very good and not lifting too heavy, actually that's a lie as I did a very heavy lat pull down tonight to try improve my strength for chin-ups.

Hubby helped me set up my gym equipment in the garage today (it was in our spare room in a corner not being able to be used) so after dinner I popped downstairs, did my workout, didn't wake the kids and was upstairs again in front of the fire before long.

There is something about lifting weights that makes you feel so strong. Like you could do anything. And I LOVE having sexy looking arms. I figure if I start working them out now, by the time summer comes (6 months away for us in the southern hemisphere) my arms will be looking curved in all the right places. That's the plan :-)

Better go to sleep. Tomorrow I'm getting up at 6am to do my run. I'm actually sleeping in some of my running clothes so it's easy to just roll out of bed and hit the pavement.

Have a great Dukany week!


  1. I am just at the point of convincing myself to do weights as I know it is the next part of my journey. I'm sure you'll be doing a full chin lift before the end of the month. I was doing a few body loaded exercises like triceps dips but not using anything other than my own body weight and three times a week I noticed dramatic improvement over a few weeks, it is the benefit of starting out from scratch - big improvements gained with a small commitment :-) Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Real runners sleep in their workout gear ;)

    I am so proud of you!

  3. Hey, get the OK from your Doctor dear, you don't want to do more damage than good, right?

    Otherwise, I AM ON THE SAME PAGE AS YOU! :) I love sexy, fit arms. One of the reasons I got into bodybuilding. I just want to be built and muscular, and STRONG.

    Take it easy, you will get those sexy arms in no time.
