Work it out.


working out, originally uploaded by tongueinchic.

I am pumped. Why? Because ArmyWife and I are going to be workout buddies! No, I suppose you are right, that isn't Earth-shattering news. BUT, it is super cool because we live just over 1,000 miles apart. God Bless teh Internetz!

Our plan? To report back to each other when we finish workouts, talk about our progress and work through this awesome book: The New Rules of Lifting for Women. Oh, and that other pesky thing necessary for workouts: Motivation. As she said, "...it is going to be GLORIOUS!" and I agree. Of course I also have to give a shout out to Alternative Army Wife because a) she is way cooler than I am and b) she got me all kinds of geared up to get back into my workout groove (she's going to be a fitness guru, just you wait!). So yeah, that is the plan.

Go Team!

Yes, that photo is one of the million reasons I love flickr. Thanks for the motivation! :)

Awesome photo! Though I'm not on Team Fitness, I've been working through some of the stuff in Lean, Long and Strong and boy howdy! My abs - MY ABS - were sore for two days. Sore like I could feel them tighten and squinch when I breathed.

When you're done with the Rules book, or if you want to branch out, I do recommend Linguvic (in spite of the author of the book's foreword). She incorporates stretching into the lifting cycle, and it's fabulously effective.

Meanwhile, keep us posted, you and ArmyWife. Let us know how the book works for you. :)

Everyone thats reading my blog knows I am on a major weight loss mission for this deployment. Since August I lost 55 lbs mostly through sport and good food! I think using your time for sport while waiting for this damn deployment is over is a great idea!!

ArmyWife said...

dude, alternativearmywife is the BOMB. She hooked me up in all kinds of ways back when ... I'm going to finally take her advice.

BTW, Tuck ... since you talked to AAW, are you on the craigslist support group?? I'm thinking about getting back into it :)
