A practical reason for getting stronger

So we're having friends over for dinner Saturday night and we decided to do something different. Long story short - had to carry a bunch of stuff home from St. Lawrence Market. There's a bit of walking involved. Bags were kinda heavy. It was a bit of a struggle, but not much. A lot of women are afraid to train with weights. Thankfully the perception that if women train with weights they'll end up looking like the professional weight lifters is dwindling. For those women who are afraid that if they train with more than 5 or 10 pounds, they'll get all muscle-bound ... you do not have enough of the hormones (testosterone ladies) required to look like that just by doing regular workouts. The ripped women you see in Ms Olympia competitions train so intensely, the average woman doesn't have the time or energy to get those results. And that probably puts a lot of you at ease. So don't hesitate to pick up a heavier weight (as long as you're healthy ... don't forget to check with your doctor). The results are both pleasing to the eye and very practical in day to day life. Until tomorrow folks ...

  1. Can T & I bring anything on Sat?

    I asked him to check but I don't think he did.

    If you get this message before 8:30 a.m. - please let me know since we are going to the Farmer's Market tomorrow morning so if there's anything you think would be good to bring, let me know :>

    P.S. I am severely allergic to coconut and strawberries so if we can avoid those two things, it would be good for my health. :>
