    Nice work with the free weights! I always get kind of intimidated lifting at the gym but I’m a huge fan of the Nike Training Club app. I never thought to try it out in the gym (only at home). I’ll have to try that 🙂

      I don’t know why I hadn’t thought to use the app in the gym before. It worked great!!

    Wow – awesome routine!

    I can’t tell you how fantastic I felt after my Step class the other day. I forgot how great it can make you feel. I’m soooo glad you like weight lifting. You can totally see the results! Way to go!

      It really does improve mood and energy. I’m glad you got the bug again. We could work out together sometime. I’ll kick your butt into happiness. 🙂

        Blissful butt-kicking. I like it.

        My thought was I’ll start a workout routine again thus guaranteeing that I would immediately get a job which would mess it all up again. We’ll see if it works!

          Ha! That’s a good way to get a job. It’s like getting a job and then an even better one comes up.

    The difference in your progress photos is AMAZING! Throughout my entire weight loss, I didn’t do any strength training, and now I’m FINALLY making the leap. I hope I see great results like you have!

      Thanks!! I love seeing progress and I regret not starting weight lifting sooner.

    Hooray for free weights! I think you should to New Rules of Lifting for Women. I did that and it is kick ass! It is about a 6 month program. I just left out the food part.

      I’ll see if my library has it!

        I agree! I think you’d enjoy NROL4W! I’m just wrapping it up now then I’m going to do the original!
