Rabbit, rabbit, Jamie here!! It’s July! Do any of ya’ll say that? When I was little I was told if I said rabbit rabbit upon waking up (literally, it has to be the first thing you say) I’d have a lucky month! I usually forget to say it immediately and remember about an hour later, which is a no-go. (Although I said it once on January 1st a year ago and crashed my car into a pole the same day so….goes to show ya how true that really is.)
Thank you for your comments on my post about troubles with strength training! I received a really interesting comment from Er about body type, indicating that I was most likely in fact a mesomorph. According to Muscle & Strength.Com:
A mesomorph has a large bone structure, large muscles and a naturally athletic physique. Mesomorphs are the best body type for bodybuilding. They find it quite easy to gain and lose weight. They are naturally strong which is the perfect platform for building muscle.
Typical traits on a Mesomorph:
Wild. And to clarify- I love muscles. Jillian Michaels is my idol, and I wouldn’t mind looking ripped if I actually looked ripped. My strength training gives me a puffy effect because I am most likely not 100% with the food I eat. I’m all for a healthy diet, but I’m not about to go nuts and I’d prefer to keep my current balance of veggies, beer, whole grains, and cupcakes. Only live once so I’m going to do it right.
That being said, I am definitely going to take your advice and incorporate some body weight training and continue to lay off the weights for a little while. Also- I am definitely interested in further checking out specific workouts/food for mesomorphs, as I totally think body type has so much to do with athletic progress.
Today I plan on kicking my ass in gear with a nice six mile run. To combat boredom, a new playlist:
The only thing that keeps me running are tunes that would keep me dancing. And speaking of dancing, I plan to do a ridiculous amount this weekend. Everyone pumped for the fourth?!
We’re having a surprise party at our house tomorrow for our friend Taylor’s birthday! Links to any great party recipes you’ve recently posted or seen in the blog world would be of great help. 😀
