    I have found out proteins are not necessary at

    all unless I want to be a muscle builder. I have been told by the mass media that I need to eat protein within 30 minutes after workout or the workout will lose most of the effectiveness. But it is just the company's tactic to sell their products. Thanks to the internet and...

    Ok so I know you aren't supposed to say this,

    but it's the truth. I work out more for my husband than for me. I mean I love how working out makes me feel, and it's good for my health and all of that, I know. And my husband has never told me I should work out or forced me to or anything like that, don't get me wrong. But...

    Getting shredded and trying to get to normal

    size. Glad I'm all natural or I think I would have been way smaller after a month of not working out.

    Up until recently I didn't understand the

    dedication required to have a fit and muscle defined body. Since starting a 6 day for 9 weeks exercise program I have much respect to those that stay in shape!

    I always do one situp a day,

    when I get out of bed that's a half of one and when I go back to bed that's the other half.

    I don't work out because I hate the way my body

    looks or I want to have an ideal body. I just work out because it feels good, I like to know that I am taking care of myself. Its a great sensation to wake up sore the next day and know that I pushed my limits.

    I work out more than most,

    but not as much as some. It’s enjoyable for me and puts me in a good mood. Feeling sore from a good workout is worth it. And when I start to feel myself get stronger, or see a person checking me out for a bit longer than what is polite…THAT is what keeps me going with a...

    Daily Basis

    It's what I do. I'm an athlete and I run an average of 9-11 miles every day. As a part of my warm up I do push ups and sit ups as well. Lately I've been on a diet and I've lost 5 lbs. I've been doing extra sit ups as well and Im so proud of my new slightly protruding abs that I...

    I do it mainly for weight loss

    but it does also make me feel good after having a good workout session. I do an hour of cardio 3-4 times a week.

    On A Mission

    I have been athletic since I was in grade school. I was on the track team, a cheerleader, gymnastics, rode my bike, and did most anything that kept me moving from yard work, swimming, and dancing. In my early 20's I was a high impact aerobics instructor. During the next 2...

    Recently joined a gym with my friend

    and we've been doing a lot of plyo. I used to just do Insanity or workout to online exercise vids at home, but I guess I don't get the same motivation I do when I work out with someone at a gym. I'm not "fat" nor do I think of myself as "fat" but I've just wanted to maintain...

    I was doing really great at getting back in my
