Goodbye NROLFW

Well, life has thrown a wrench in my plans. Things were going smoothly with my exercise routine. I was certainly building muscle, maintaining my weight and feeling pretty good.

And then an injury. I will get into the details of this in another post. It is a long story for another day. However, the injury has come with two requirments.....taking it easy (because that's so easy to do with two kids and a full time job) and not lifting anything heavy. GREEAATTT.

I finally built up some strength and now I cannot lift anything for at least 6 weeks.

I am so afraid that this is going to send me backwards. I am afraid of gaining weight. I am afraid of how much I am going to hate the gym if all I can do is cardio.

I want to stay positive. It is just hard when you work really hard at something and then have to walk away from it. I have followed NROLFW for 9 weeks and I never cheated...not even once.

So goodbye for now New Rules of Lifting for Women. I have really enjoyed how you make my arms, back and legs look. I hope we will meet again soon.


  1. Take it easy lady! We all have those fears when life throws us a curveball but remember this is in the only body we get, so take care of it!

    Hope you are feeling better soon!

  2. I'm sorry about your injury. Studies have shown though that women who have lifted before have developed a significant amount of muscle memory so even after not working out for awhile, they're able to pick it up easily and develop at a similar rate as before. Take it easy and don't worry, you still look great! I loved NROLFW too!

  3. Oh no! YES stay positive girl! The more you take it easy the faster you will heal and can get right back on track
