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.
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.
