All kinds of gains being made!!! Let this remind you that it’s not about pounds lost…but what you’re made of.
In 3 months I have lost 0.2lbs of weight!!! However I have lost 4.6lbs of body fat and gained 2.4lbs of muscle mass!!! My body fat percentage has decreased by 2.9%!!!

I’m very proud of myself for not allowing the stress of moving from my home into the home of some friends, or my boyfriend’s deployment, or my new desk job where I am made to sit for hours on end…to keep me from continuing to live a healthy life. It would be so easy to use any of these things as an excuse and then some…but where does it get you!?!

Work hard, be mindful of what you’re doing, set goals and make it a new lifestyle!!! And don’t beat yourself up for not being perfect…no one is :)

Is it just me, or does the discourse in the powerlifting and bodybuilding community have the same effect on lifters’ perception of “strong” or “jacked” that photoshopping or airbrushing has on womens’ perception of beauty?

Here’s a newsflash: for the general public, a 225 bench and 315 squat are pretty darn strong for a male, and a 95 bench and 185 squat are pretty darn strong for a female.
Pick a commercial gym at random. You’ll find MAYBE 3-5 people who lift those weights out of hundreds of total members.
Sure, most of them aren’t training for pure strength, but I’d wager that if they were, most of them would still fall short of those standards.

Sometimes I forget that I’m actually strong because spend so much time comparing myself to people who are so much stronger than me.  I need to take more time recognizing my accomplishments.
