Who Is That?

back squat
I like being strong!

Dear Reader:

Last week I learned to do a back squat. This was a new move for me and on the first try I lost my balance in the set-up and nearly knocked over my trainer! But three sets in, I had it down perfectly. I was impressed. Ninety-five pounds up….ninety five pounds down…I’m looking good in that mirror.

Did I say I was impressed with myself?! Nine months in and I’m amazed at what a 58-year-old woman can do when she sets her mind to it.

I’ve always considered myself to be an emotionally strong woman; now I’m physically strong, too. Let me just say that’s an amazing combination.

Just do it, ladies!

  1. That is an amazing combination. You are an inspiration, and not just in an abstract or ‘I wish I could be like that but I can’t’ way. You have reminded me to get out my yoga mat and work on my strength.

    1. I genuinely wish this amazing feeling for everyone! The payoff is just huge! Roll out that mat! Try a plank and lmk how it goes…it’s humbling at first! I just think of Cindy (from my post) and Cher who can do a 5 min, plank when I’m suffering. I also cuss quite a bit…silently, of course!

    1. TY! What a perfect comment for me at this moment…I’m going to need a strong back soon. More on that later!
