Lady Lifter Spotlight: Me!

December 12, 2012

Since the half-marathon I completed this summer, I’ve taken a decent break from running. At the moment I don’t miss it, and I know when it’s time to go back, I will. I haven’t been avoiding running, but I’m really enjoying the 20-minute or so WOD that gets my heart-rate up without any fancy equipment, and doing my weight lifting/cardio classes.

There are a TON of healthy living blogs. A serious ton. There are a few who are pretty running-focused (which I’ll highlight in another post), but there aren’t a lot who are focused on weight lifting! I found a few, and I’ve been following a few sites for a while, so I was excited when I saw an interview with Suzanne from Workout Nirvana…as a Lady Lifter! I thought this was a great idea, by Jenn from Wine to Weight Lifting: a series of interviews with women who lift weights.


I was happy she decided to feature me as well! I had fun answering the questions, and I also had to sneak in a few pictures of me in workout clothes in my gym which was challenging as the locker room is always full and people don’t really bring their phones into the weight room (as they shouldn’t). So I finally share a picture of my little “guns” and revel in being a woman with muscles thanks to weight lifting. Check out my Lady Lifter Spotlight on Wine to Weightlifting.

Check out other Lady Lifter Spotlights and either share them with or recommend a Lady Lifter who should be profiled!

Have any weight lifting (male or female-focused) blogs to recommend? What do you ready consistently for weight lifting information?

    Congrats on your progress Sara. Looking good! I bet you’ll find that when you go back to running it’s easier than it’s ever been.

      Thanks Nick 🙂 Hopefully that’s true – I think running is very mental (in addition to the endurance) and I haven’t been in a running mood lately 🙂

        I was so quick to leave that link yesterday, forgot to mention that she is also a food writer who wanted to get in shape:
        She used to contribute in Slow Trav and that is where I originally found her first blog.

    Fantastic read! Glad to see more women lifting weights rather than just simple cardio.
    My site isn’t strictly weight lifting although I do perform a lot of weight training.
    I am experiementing with my own body over the course of the year with different diets, starting with Paleo. I know a lot of crossfitters use Paleo, check it out:

    Haven’t done much with weights and now don’t have access. I am trying to stick to cardio at the very least though

    Chia seeds in your every day meal – just add a pinch of seeds over your salad or meal and eat it:) Or
    you can make some creams, smoothies, etc. This may be particularly helpful for people who suffer from immune
    disorders, like AIDS, for this reason. As well as losing weight,
    the addition of this oil can also help to lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure.
