TGIF!!! Again it seems the week just flew by. We are over half way through March. Yikes!!!
I wanted to clarify something about my Women’s Only Fitness Area post. It is not that I don’t think areas that like should exist, I do. I know a lot of women, especially in the beginning, are a little intimidated about doing weights because of the “muscle guys” that usually hang out in weight rooms. In fact, one of the very first gyms I belonged to was a women’s only gym. I LOVED it. But we had great equipment – it had everything a “normal” gym (for that time) had. I just think this gym went cheap/easy on the equipment in the women’s only area.
Now, let’s get to Friday’s Fabulous Five . . .

Allow exercise volume to dictate food volume, day to day. Traveling so no training? Down-regulate food intake. Training like crazy? Eat up.
