Hi, I'm Alysha
I'm 5' 7'
Almost 20 years old
A Little Background
I absolutely love lifting. I love the way it makes me look and the way it makes me feel, but I didn't start out that way. I used to be one of those girls that would do an hour of cardio every single day without fail, eat barely anything but vegetables, and never even pick up a dumbbell. Two years ago I enrolled in college as a nutrition major where I met my boyfriend (who also just happens to be a nutrition major). He changed my life completely. He eventually changed my strict cardio ways and got me into lifting. He showed me how great it is to be strong and that being muscular is much sexier than being skinny. I have been lifting for a little over a year now and I have made tremendous progress, gaining at least 10 pounds of muscle since the time my boyfriend ripped me off the elliptical. For the first time in my life I am happy with my body and like the way I look. I no longer feel trapped in an endless cycle of trying to burn off calories, essentially withering away my body, but rather I feel good about putting energy into body and sculpting it to grow into something beautiful.
I want to continue my journey gaining muscle and increasing my positive feelings about myself and my body. Right now I am cutting. I have made a lot of progress since I began in January, but I am deciding to tighten up my routine and meal plan in order to push myself to achieve maximum results.
I lift like a guy and am proud of it! Because of this most of the friends I surround myself with are men. I do not know any females who are into muscle building the way I am and I would like to meet some. This is where your guys come in! I want some female friends with similar goals and stories to share. No matter how you slice it, girls are different than guys and my guy friends don't always... get it.
In this log I am going to post all about my routine, diet, recipes, and any questions that may pop up. My intention is for it to be a log of my progress, but also a support system for girls out there lacking that female lifting buddy. I hope you guys enjoy it and feel free to chime in
