I flex in the mirror…a lot

By Melinda Mawdsley

Having muscles is awesome! I may or may not have flexed for Rachel so she could see my biceps. (I'm kind of a dork.)

I've been on the "Body by Science" workout with my husband for several months now, and we've both made gains in our upper-body and lower-body strength despite lifting just once a week for like 7 minutes each. Plus, my heart is pumping fast the whole time I'm lifting and a good 10 minutes after I'm done, so I'm getting some cardio benefit, as well.

It's fun to be stronger. I love it!

My husband and I will press on with our workout, but I wanted to post a couple photos to prove I'm lifting weights at a real gym on real machines.

(Note: I DO NOT wear makeup or do my hair to go to the gym. Obviously.)
