Do not Break and do not waiver, Personal victory is yours to savor. Do not back down from those iron plates what I want hear is "add MORE weight". Progress can only BEGIN after every LAST step TRUE growth develops after that very last rep. 1 MORE REP - always press beyond your boundary Muscle is the tool and your body is the foundry! It is MY choice to live healthy. It is MY choice to eat foods that are good for my body. It is MY choice to exercise. It is what I choose to do. It is who I choose to be. It is ME! I am a 41 year old husband and father of 3 girls. I am looking forward to being active with them as they grow up. I want to be a part of everything they do and learn. I was new to Sparkpeople and if not for my Android phone, I would not have discovered it. I am sure glad I did. SP is even more than what I was looking for. I was just looking for a calorie, carb, protein tracker. What I found was a community site that is totally focused on supporting each others goal. It's a lot like Facebook, but with a purpose other than just trying to prove you have more friends than anyone

    Thanks for your note I don't think my Y has that kind of test, but it sounds like a great tool. I have added more cardio in my workout and still do strength training m-f working on different areas. I still am using machines because I don't really know what I am doing with free weights. It is a little intimidating that side of the gym. lol I watch people over there to see how they are doing it and have added some cable workouts in the mix. I see you have lost a good amount of weight and your babies looks so cute. I have 2 kids myself 4 and 8 yrs old. I am trying to show them how to eat better. Life isnt just mac n cheese. Ha Ha. They think it is a food group. If we do fast food these days its subway and not BK. I too have just found out about this web site and it is helping me keep up with my food intake I have been writing down what I eat and a what times. Wow what a difference that makes..

    Keep in touch and thanks again for taking the time to send me a note.
