12-Week Weight Lifting Program: Part 2

12-week-weight-lifting-program

Hello Hungry Readers! How are you?

Sorry, I’ve been relatively quiet since sharing my favorite Super Bowl Snacks earlier this month. (If you haven’t tried making those sweet potato bacon bites yet, well I highly suggest you get your butt in gear and whip up a batch. You will not be disappointed.)

Anyway, moving on to the core purpose of this post: to share the next stages in my 12-week weight lifting plan with you. Read More

Less Running, More Lifting: My 12-Week Weight Lifting Program

12-week-weight-lifting-program

Ever since I finished the marathon in November, I haven’t been much into running. This is mostly because I’ve been lifting a lot of weights. And after I came across and began this 12-week weight lifting program, I got really into spending my time on strength training.

I enjoy little bouts of running here and there, but for the most part, I think I might have exhausted my capacity for distance running; at least for the time being.

It’s Raining and I Don’t Feel Like Going to the Gym


Monday’s workout.

Confession: Yesterday I let a lack of motivation get the best of me.

I was planning on going to the gym to run on the treadmill after work, but at some point during my train ride home I decided that I just wasn’t going to go.

It was pouring rain and windy outside; all I kept thinking was, “Once I get home, there’s no way I’m going back out again.” The more I thought that, the more I was able to convince myself that skipping the gym was a good idea.

Basically, my excuse was as simple as, “It’s raining out and I don’t feel like going to the gym.”

But you know what? I don’t feel guilty and I stand by my decision.
