I feel like I’ve discovered a whole new superpower.
I can lift heavy.
Tis true! At least, I’m lifting heavier than I did before – and I’m loving it. Even as I sit here, sweaty and panting post-CrossFit Mamas, my upper arms are quivering. I picture them as happy pups, hence the quivering results from severe tail wagging. Because I am so elated with my workouts these days.
Granted, I’m pretty much always elated with my workouts. But I was away from my weights for so long that they feel all new and shiney. And they actually are new and shiney. I have begun using my Selecteks on a near daily basis and those babies are F-I-N-E fine. Seriously. If you lift at home and plan on continuing to lift at home – make the investment. I can’t wait to start the challenge group with these beauties.
And before we get to the “but you’ll bulk up” phase of the convo, let’s recall that I am, in point of fact, a female and therefore will not bulk up. This body doesn’t produce those sorts of muscles. I can lift as heavy as I want and I’ll just get prettier (and more capable of kicking your ass when you insinuate I possess any sort of masculinity).
So anyway – rest day from running, quick 10 rounds for CrossFit Mamas, and now off to shower before the big Homecoming game. Go, Slaters!
Happy Friday, SweatItOuters!
