Good morning! Thanks for being so supportive of my decision to become a vegetarian. I really do value and appreciate all your opinions, so it means a lot 🙂
So last night went by SO fast! I went to a purse party at my girl Theresa’s, (and didn’t leave empty handed.) Look at this CUTE scarf!
Got home from there around 7:00 and got started on dinner. And when I say “got started on dinner” I mean I unwrapped this bad boy:
…plopped him in the microwave, and then steamed some green beans for some extra veggies:
OMG – this burrito was the shiznizzle! SO good. I need to stock up on these babies when there’s a sale.
So have you noticed something different in my dinners this week? Well, that’s because they’ve all either been fairly easy, out, or frozen. I know I said I’m doing the kitchen clearing challenge, but that’s not the only reason why. Remember on Monday when I was telling you about my bad morning and added that my face was all puffy to boot because I was crying? Well, I was crying on Sunday night because I missed a certain someone! Shane’s been in San Diego for a business conference since Sunday, so I’ve been fending for myself for dinner. He comes back this morning, but I didn’t want to announce to the world that I’d be alone all week. Call me paranoid, but you never know what creepers are reading your blog, ya know? Anyway, he gets back this morning!! YAY! We’ve missed each other a LOT. I’ve gone away for a week at a time, but Shane hasn’t yet since we’ve lived together. OK, moving on.
While watching Glee, I busted out my New Rules of Lifting For Women book and started reading it. With a glass of wine of course.
The New Rules of Lifting for Women’>New Rules of Lifting for Women is based on the premise that women should be strength training in a more similar way that men are. We are too often told that we should lift heavy weights, because heavy lifting will make us bulky (ugh – hate this word.) However, heavy weights are what get results! If you look back at some of my posts on strength training, I’ve always been a fan of lifting heavy weights. The fact is women don’t have enough testosterone to get huge like guys can (and it takes guys a heck of a lot of work, too!) I definitely agree with this concept.
The book also goes into diet a little bit, which I haven’t formed a first impression of yet. It does, however, state that when we eat is more important than what we eat. Say whaaa?! I’m not sure I’ll agree with this concept, but I’ll bite, and keep reading. I finished chapter one, then got some bunnies and finished chapter two.
LOVE Bunny friends 😀
Well, you know the story, I gotta go get ready for work, as I’m running late!
What are your general thoughts on strength training for women?
