"Before" Pictures


Two things I learned today is: I still hate lunges and the counter guy at my gym is a dirty old man.

I was starting my workout when the counter guy asked me how long I ran on the treadmill and what type of weight training I was doing. It was short and sweet and he asked me to come see him after my workout. Sure, no problem.

Of course, I thought what could he want? Maybe he wanted to commend on my workout routine or ask me to help someone out with weights or countless other things.

Do you want to know what this dirty old man wanted? He wanted to ask me if I was wearing a good support bra while running on the treadmill. He was just checking to make sure I had enough support. Whatever, you perv.



Above is the infamous "before" photo. I'll take another in a month or so.

If I look grumpy, I am. If for no other reason than the counter guy at my gym is a perv. And that's kind of bumming me out.
Looking at the photo, my body is a far cry from where I began in December. I can't wait to see what body shape the weight training and 100 percent raw will do. With each workout, I am striving to make it better than the last.
Yes, I might complain about being sore,. waking up at the crack of dawn and having to do stupid lunges but I'm very excited to see the outcome.
