Stronger

I've been pumping iron for three weeks now.

Can you believe it? Neither can I.

I'm not sure what possessed me to begin but I'm not turning back on my decision.

I didn't realize how much I missed weight training. I used to be a fitness freak in my twenties; working out and playing volleyball three times a week.

After having children, I stopped being physically active. Too busy. Too tired.

Sound familiar?

Uh-huh.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want to bulk up.

I just want to get leaner, stronger.

Besides, this forty-year old mama needs to take care of herself.

And that means daily exercise, and having a good diet. After reading this article I'm convinced that weight training is good for my health.

Honestly, I want to be in the best shape of my life.
