I'm also kicking A$$ at the gym with my workouts. I started November 9, 2010 lifting free weights with a 5 lb weight. I am now up to 17.5 lbs on the dumbbells, benching 55 lbs, and 30 lb squats on the smith machine. I also do an assorted exercises on the matrix cable machine, along with a couple on the Nautilus machines and again an assorted exercises with medicine balls. I have recently started to use the kettle bells that my gym affords.
I started on December 8, 2010 with a running program called couch to 5k. To be honest I only stuck with that program for about 3 weeks before coming up with my own training. I have ran my first 5k on March 5th with a time of 39:03 and in training to run a 10k. I don't have one registered yet and I have my sights set on the Cooper River Bridge Run next year if I don't find one this year. When I first started on December 9th I could only run for a min at a time and even then that took a lot from me, but today April 3, 2011 I successfully ran for 58 mins without having to take any sort of walking breaks....could have gone a little longer but our treadmills only go up to 60 mins at a time.
I have one last thing to say in closing this blog:
TO ALL OF THOSE AT KIRTLAND AFB WHO CALLED ME A FATA$$ BITCH WHORE, YOU CAN TAKE THIS AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR SKINNY A$$!!!!
None of you will ever bring me down again!!! I'm a strong woman in mind and body, and getting stronger everyday!
