I love to lift weights. But I figured out that if I’m not following a specific plan then I don’t do it. I’m a total slacker if I have to make it up on my own.

Sunday I went to bodybuilding.com and copied down their fitness bible for women. It is a 12 week plan for lifting 4 days a week with the weight increasing and reps decreasing every three weeks. I’ve done one day of arms and one day of legs. I had to modify the leg day because it called for machines that I don’t have. I added in Romanian deadlifts instead. I love those since it works the entire back of my body. I did that two days ago. I had a massage the next day and my therapist told me that I felt more toned! That was probably just because my muscles were in shock but I’m taking the compliment anyway.
