The Nancy Rose Performance Wear Contest was really enjoyable. I love reading all of your different interests in fitness. Normally I do an old fashioned drawing by placing everyone’s name in a hat, but this time I used a computer program that randomly generates names for contest. That was far easier than writing all the names on scraps of paper. Should have thought of this before!

This is 34

powered by Fotopedia

 

I turned 34 a few weeks back. It was one of those, “Oh, shit!” days. Not because I repudiate turning older. It doesn’t bother me. It was more, “Oh, shit. I have to stop doing stuff for one hour today and celebrate me. I’m not sure if I have the time or really even care.”

This article popped up in my Facebook feed earlier this morning on Marianne Kane’s page.

Confession of a Shark Syndrome Sufferer

This morning I tiptoed into my son’s room to gather his clothes for the day. Though I was quiet, his little head popped out of his blanket cocoon and he gave me a big, “Hi, Mom!”
My kids ventured back to school today, and though I wasn’t sending them off while two-fisting martinis, I also wasn’t the teary mom who waited until the classroom doors closed before I moped back to my car.

We Understand If You Don’t Love Lifting

Two online clients confessed to me the same thing this past week. They both had similar sentiments, beginning with, “I can’t imagine not working with you. I love how my body has transformed and I don’t want to stop training.” Then the expected but happened, “but I don’t like lifting.”

I believe that supplements played a large role in reaching my goals.
