Rest = Recovery
Up early today. Not enough sleep…ugh. I need to give my body more time to rest and restore and here I am up at a quarter after ten. I know it’s not that late but I’m an early riser. I have a hard time sleeping in even when my kids aren’t home. As I said earlier, I am spending waaaayy too much time online â€œresearchingâ€. While I’m finding valuable information and it is a necessity since I canâ€™t afford a trainer right now, it is taking up a lot of time. Plus, seeing all the pictures of the competitors is sort of freaking me out. After looking at all their ripped bodies, I have to keep reminding myself Iâ€™m competing to LOSE not to get ripped. That’s not to say I don’t want muscles because I do. It just that, for most people, it takes a long time and A LOT of work to see that sort of muscle growth. So ladies, who worry about “bulking up”, (and I used to be one of you), you WON’T unless you are genetically inclined, which most women are not or you put TONS of effort, way more than you’re likely to do even when you feel like you’re training your azz off, or you take drugs. I got over that fear and I’m going to enjoy the benefits and results of weight training.
