After the age of 40 we can lose 1 to 2% of muscle mass per year unless we do something about it! Lifting weights is a must. Cardiovascular exercise alone such as running or swimming will not increase muscle mass! Here are ten reasons why I feel you should include weightlifting in your daily exercise regimen:

Now you can see all of my favorite athleisure wear and workout equipment all in one place. I've created a new Pinterest Board called Athleisure Wear & Workout Equipment where I'll be pinning all of my favorite items that I purchased from Amazon with direct links to where you can find them. People always ask me where I got certain items and now I can just direct them to this board.

I happened to ask a friend how she got so many full profile great selfies on her IG page and she said she props her cell phone upright on a stand and sets the timer on her camera for 10secs. How did I not know this! This is a game changer for me now because I have always taken the time to set up my Sony on a tripod and take photos in my backyard. Besides the fact that my iPhone 6 takes lousy photos, I will still be able to capture the moments when I come home from the gym and want to do some fitness checks.

I the last time I posted a side by side photo was back in January, I had fell off my diet over the holidays and I wasn't too happy with myself. So I picked up where I left off and continued on the same nutritional program that I was on prior to the holidays arriving. Pretty much all I was doing was limiting my sugar intake. I am literally avoiding products that contains sugar.... it is the only way that my body will move fat.

I started my fitness journey during my birthday month in August 2015. The photos in the pink sports bra shows me at 34% bodyfat and weighing 151.5. Through a series of sugar detox, weight lifting and cardio, I got my bodyfat down to 25%. I don't weigh myself much but the last time I weigh myself I was 144.0 and i'm a whole lotta muscle now.
