Hey ya’ll! Courtney is most likely still chilling on the beach with beer in hand and I am back to writing and editing my life away. Camping was a BLAST. I’m anxiously awaiting some pictures but at least I do have one of our arrival…Coors Light Ad anyone?
Danny and I didn’t get to the campsite until midnight Friday night. He got home from his long UPS day at 8pm and we packed up his entire car, got in & ready to hit the road and it wouldn’t START. I had to do everything in my power not to laugh (I mean it was really really funny) because I could see that D$ was pretty sad. We couldn’t take my car because I’m working on getting the insurance set up this week along with my VA tags..so it would have been a highly illegal choice. Stealing his parents’ mini van ended up being the best choice ever. Future life vehicle? Let’s hope not.
Fast forward to hitting the gym this morning= highly successful. I’ve been working hard to increase my running mileage and feeling great about it. One thing I’ve decreased= strength training.
I need to make something clear. I know that strength training= does not equal bulky woman. However- strength training makes ME feel bulky. I’m not sure if it’s my past as a gymnast and the fact that I pack on muscle FAST, but there is something about my own body and strength training that really does not mix. Every time I get in to strength training, my 5 foot frame feels puffy and uncomfortable. Am I doing something wrong? Is this just my body?
Feeling this way has honestly allowed me develop some sort of fear against hitting the weights again. I haven’t done any strength training in a month, and I WANT to. I know that it’s good for my body…but I am honestly freaked out about the stocky appearance it gives me, and the way it makes me feel.
Can anyone relate? Am I the only fast packing muscle woman out there?
