Just a thought

Maybe my next plan will be DC Training.....anyone with thoughts on this workout!
Dogg Crapp Training yeah baby thats what I'm talking about!


Short Post

OK must come up with a new plan! Think I am getting close.......going old school
Volume Training for 4-6 weeks, just might takes some before and after shots this weekend, have not taken in along time and I need to see how my legs look outside of a 3 way mirror! Caps are coming in nice along with the back!

Taking tonight off from training and have a plan for Saturday and Sunday, I find I do much better when I have it already in my head what I will be to get that mind/muscle connection going!

Anyways just want to leave you all with a little saying....sorry if it sounds preachy!

expect God to show you something new today. Some people resist change, but God created us to need variety in our life. If we do the same things over and over, we get burned out on it. God will keep our lives exciting if we seek him everyday.

Look for new ways of doing things. If you have been working the same job for thirty years (or working out the same way and eating the same) find a new path while you get to your destination. Do something to invite newness into your life so you can discover a new and better path!

Peace, Love and Muscle,

Soaring like the Eagles

I never realized when I came up with the my Title for my blog that it would mean more to me then just Fitness. Maybe 2009 was meant to be a year of discovering myself......I've bean doing much reading not just on the physical muscle front but on Building Spiritual Muscle also. I want to become the person who lets go of the past regrets, lives in the present, and never gives up on a fabulous future! My interest is still inside of me for competing.......I can feel it deep down, I can not say when, or how I will do it but one thing I'm slowly learning about myself is that I have never been a person who gives up easy, I said one day, just one time I would make it to a National Show........maybe it won't be a first place but just the satisfaction of knowing I did it would count the most. But competing has to be just an extension of who I am, a good wife, mother, friend, someone who truly chooses everyday when I roll out of bed that today is my day and I can make the choice to make it great, no one can decide that for me, negativity will bounce right off of me and I will not internalize anyone else's problems as my own. I will remember that God has a plan for me and that plan was not meant to be locked in a self inflicted cage of doubt but to soar like an eagle. Anyways I guess enough of that talk and bit on my fitness front!

I just want to say I am still working out lifting as heavy as I can and eating healthy, just have to push up the calorie intake, sorry to say I've dropped 10 pounds in the last couple of month not trying. Super charged up metabolism I guess. Another thing I have found really helping with a stress is kick boxing and sparing with a heavy bag, nothing like it........beating the crap out of something to relieve stress makes you so feel good afterward, for me it's Cardio but fun! Not having to stand on a boring treadmill is awesome for me because I think I must be ADD and just can not stand in one spot that long! really I think I should have taken it up years ago, might I add that I can really feel it in the hip flexors with all that kicking of the heavy bag! My Hugo Riveria Book I was doing is completed, just can not believe 21 weeks have past......must find a different plan so I can shake things ups a bit and confuse my muscles once again so they will grow! First start taking in more calories! I see that as a good plan to start with and dig deep for the perfect workout to suit my ectomorph frame that gives me rest and recovery time so I can one day soar like those eagles onto the National Stage.

Hope all is well and Congrats to Jessica and Jody I understand they had a little bundle of joy today.

Take care,

Lisa T.

Just a random post

OK since I learned so much from Cynthia last week I think I will put it to good use tonight at the Gym..........I should mention Abby on chest also (I'm so weak) compared to these two girls! tonight will be Chest and Tri's all out pushing to my max! Only way I'm going to go from scrawny to National level competitor! Don't care if I have to wait another year just for training and eating up, who ever said I absolutely had to make it this year? OK maybe me but my mindset has changed.......let the body do the talking and once it's ready for the stage watch out I will have the mind, body and spirit to grace that stage one day!

I posted this picture of Nancy because I love all the bling on her suit! very eye catching. Maybe one day I will have full caps and a nice quad workout at a time! Got to keep it real a body like that doesn't happen over night takes years of patiences and hard work for that look!
