    Cool **Lora's Tale "It Is By Will Alone I Set My Mind In Motion" with Team Scivation**

    Hi, all.

    First off, I wanted to thank, Derek and Team Scivation for this opportunity!!

    I've been around BB.com for a little over a year, mostly reading articles and getting some really great tips of nutrition, supplements, and weight-lifting techniques. I'm not new to the gym scene. For years, I'd play around with doing lots of cardio or try my hand at strength training. I wasn't serious enough about it. It showed on my body and a little over 2 years ago, I decided "that's it"! Through blood, sweat, and tears, I lost over 50lbs.

    I admit, I've had help using a really great trainer, last year. But because of my resolute nature I thought I could do it all on my own when the sessions were finally completed. I developed a binge/purge eating disorder and went through Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous, Nutritional Therapy with a Group Leader, One-on-One counseling with a R.D., etc. etc. I was very desperate to maintain my weight loss and do whatever it took to do it. I don't want anyone to go through what I did. I learned from those mistakes.

    There are many reasons why I wanted to join Team Scivation. Vanity is one! I want to look HOT! And in a healthy manner.

    I am very excited to start my journey with you! I hope to do great things.

    Oh, and I'm part of the Masters Chamber group and I promised I'd model the new shirt. I don't want to disappoint anyone, including myself.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks everyone for the welcome!

    My body is sore from the workouts I've been doing all week. (I was using my own method.) I concentrated on my biceps last night. I hate working on them but I don't want those muscles to turn into jello! I can't stop neglecting them.

    Today, I'll do 30 minutes of HIIT on the elliptical, and abs. (I incorporate stretching techniques from yoga and pilates into my ab workout.) Tomorrow, is my day off from the gym but I have to work. No rest for the weary.

    I apologize for my absense! I had walking pneumona and was out of work for a few days. I'm still on antibiotics at the moment and quite loopy. I hated not being able to work out and being home all day long isn't good for my diet. Oh, yeah, it snowed here, too.

    So, I went back on Wednesday and worked on legs and today did chest and triceps. These by far are my favorite workouts. I feel like a tough cookie next to the big brawny men at my gym. (I really am the only girl it seems who is not intimidated by the guys.) I think I may be pushing myself a bit too much, but I'm having a great time!

    Now that I'm back in action I'll be more detailed in later posts. Right now, I'm exhausted!

    Hello again!

    The weekend went pretty well with my diet and exercise.

    Saturday I worked on shoulders and back. Sunday was focusing on biceps that I have the most difficulty with. I'm trying to concentrate more on doing a routine successfully and then slowly add a bit of weight week by week. My ex-trainer was doing the same thing for me last year.

    Time will tell. Tonight I simple did cardio and abs to give my upper body some rest. But back to work tomorrow!

    Oh, I have to keep reminding myself to eat more. I can barely get to 1400 calories. Simply not hungry. I'll keep trying!

    Go easy.

    I feel terrible! With working 6 days a week, working out 6 days a week, and trying to have some sort of social life, I've been kept busy!

    I'm still trucking along though. I will update more soon.

    Go easy!
