Practice makes perfect~
I was just thinking today how little I knew when I first started lifting, I was so uncoordinated and weak…I was just BAD at most lifts, exercises, drills, etc- it was so HARD!! But with PRACTICE those same “hard” things I do EASILY now.
I mention this because many women in our current Shine in 49 contest ARE Beginners… For the “beginners” out there remember ~ “practice DOES make perfect”.
The same thought came to mind when I read an e-mail recently sent to me about my “heavy” lifting…for some reason she assumed I’ve always been that strong and that if she wasn’t able to lift those same weights she wouldn’t get results.
Ladies trust me, I was VERY, VERY weak when I first started lifting consistently 7 years ago…I was SCRAWNY with no muscle tone yet VERY afraid I’d get bulky still! AND when I started I did get results lifting lighter weights than I am now– the Difference is that those weights CHALLENGED me then, but now they don’t….So in order to maintain or improve my results I have to keep lifting the weights that actually challenge me.
IT IS ALL RELATIVE! Just remember Challenge= Change…as long as you are challenging your body it will change!
My life is absolutely amazing right now~ VERY busy, but I LOVE IT!! I thrive when I am busy doing what I love!!
AND I am getting my workouts done– NO EXCUSES!!!
Last night I did legs and today I was rewarded with a sore booty!!!
I am weighing 127 at the moment~ and expect that for my birthday next month , I’ll be 125
Gotta GO~ but just remember…Keep Practicing you CAN Be PERFECT!!
