gain a-gain

My trainers are discussing the awesome numbers
that are mine! Robert and Sam. 
Sam has the "Cougar group!"

We did the numbers - 
And I gained  another (almost) 3 pounds
of pure muscle these last 6 weeks!

So that's nearly 6 pounds of muscle gain -
Since starting CrossFit. Which was April - 
But what with the double concussion and all -
I really only count From May! So, 4 months.

BMI still the same 28% and some change.
Always room for some improvement!

These look big, but they are only 10 # each!
Hot smile

What a relief - I knew I was gaining -
And I hoped it was more muscle!
And I'm not really even trying!

All kinds of new proportions... and a new sole.... (soul)
Thumbs up

Mine are real! Thank You Very Much!

I ordered a new memory foam mattress - finally -
Cuz after all those years of being heavy,
I wore this last one out!
(Also got some more protein!) 

The UPS guy left the Bed In A Box
 with a neighbor downstairs...
It's only 80 pounds... so I carried it up -
With my neighbor Pat here to spot me,
and lift the leading egde if it got caught!
I CAN do hard things!

Stay Strong!
WE can do hard things!


  1. Yes, let's hear it for real tatas and real strong women!

    I definitely need a new mattress. Just been lazy about getting one. And I so want MORE MUSCLE!!!!

    :) Congrats. Keep at it. Be amazinger.
    (And that note about the "she'll eat it" neighbor is hilarious.)

  2. You are a real muscle lady!!! That picture of you with the big weights is very cool - I don't care if they're only 10 pounds each.

  3. Yay! Thanks! I like it too, Shelly!
    I only added that part in case somebody thinks
    I'm braggin' again! Which of course, I am!

    I think good muscles and weight and health
    starts with a good night's sleep - so I "splurged"
    and got the mattress - shoulda done that a year ago!

  4. Muscles Anne :)

  5. A new bed is always good thing!
    You definitely look hard core with those weights.
