New Year New Me, BONUS Tricep Exercises!

It's BONUS resistance training video tutorial day!

My triceps are an area that have been an area of contention my entire life. I was always the overweight kid in the class, always the one getting teased over those issues. I felt self conscious in short sleeved shirts, and often wore baggy sweatshirts, sweaters, and long sleeved tops. I'm sure that alot of my readers can relate to having one body issue or another, be it real or self-imagined.

Another thing that I have learned is that the power lies within me and me alone to change the way that I feel about myself, how I see myself in the mirror and to change my body on the outside.


Now, for that comparison that you {and I} have all been waiting for. May 26th marks the 6month mark in this body transformation journey that I am on.

6months of hard work. Over 25" lost overall, and over 15lbs. lost.


The biggest changes that I see are in my upper body; my shoulders, arms, collarbone, chest and yes my waist and hips too! Pretty awesome, and in just 6months! I feel more confident in my body than I ever have in my life and am definitely the smallest that I have ever been in my adult life.

Now for the BIG reality check...the 2009 and 2013 comparison


I'm a little speechless right now. I am so thankful for all of your love and support. For pushing me to do better and be better. For letting me be real and embracing me, fault and all.

I cried tears of joy seeing this side-by-side. I cannot believe it...but it's me! It's ME!
