So, I did my first official workout this morning and...I worked my butt off! Ouch!!! Although I've been working out at home, I didn't have the resistance needed to challenge my lower body...and man did I feel it today! My thighs feel like jelly! There is something to say for doing weighted squats, I only did 45lbs, but that was all it took to show me how out of shape I have gotten. Just 6 months ago I was squating 150lbs easily. It takes only 2 weeks of inactivity to begin losing strength gains, so if you want to take a break from weightlifting don't go longer than 2 weeks. Now I have to start light and build up again.
Overall I'm back in the gym again and got a new strength building workout. I've tightened up on my diet...for real this time! I look forward to showing off my accomplishments in the next 3 months! =)
