    I LOVE when bloggers promote lifting weights. I HATE when people are like “I don’t want to bulk up” Clearly you are showing that it’s not going to happen even lifting heavy weights. Thanks for sharing, it takes a lot courage to put up picks in a bikini. Keep up the great work!

    You’re so brave to put up photos of yourself like that, but I respect the honesty and transparency SO MUCH. You look fantastic, girl, and I’d be proud if I were you! Keep it up!

    I love those rows that incorporate core work (like stage 2!) I’ve been switching up my routine and doing those, and I always feel it afterwards.

    I see the biggest difference in your back! I hope you are wearing your sunscreen πŸ™‚ Have you been checked for scoliosis? Your shoulders are uneven like mine.

      I haven’t been checked for scoliosis since I was little, but now that you mention, my shoulders are uneven…

        I have some slight scoliosis too, and it looks a little like that.
        For me it just means one bra strap is hitched a little tighter than the other πŸ˜‰

    Nice job! I definitely see some improvement in those pics too. I agree with the 75 second rests in stage 2, they are my least favorite. In fact, I find myself cutting them short b/c I just don’t feel like it’s necessary. The only other thing I’m not digging about this stage is the interval training at the end of 2B. I’ve only done it once out of 3 workouts. I feel like I already do interval training with running and usually the days when I do NROLFW aren’t scheduled to be running days for a reason so I’ve struggled with that part. I’m excited for stage 3 soon too!

    I am really confused by the workouts (I REALLY need to buy the book. Still afraid of the weights area) – but you look great!! I haven’t stared so intently as a woman’s ass before as I just did to yours – but that’s where I see the most results πŸ™‚ Hee. Can’t wait to hear about Stage 3!

    Great job!! I read this book, but I confess it’s been sitting on my shelf since. You’ve inspired me to break it out and hit the weight room!!

    You look so ripped and toned. Definitely a motivation to start lifting again. I always feel so much stronger when I do it but for some reason weight training falls of my list of priorities. It’s time to get serious and maybe give the book a try. Also you might want to stop over and read my post about volunteering for the Syracuse HIM last year. Beware of those water bottles at aid stations in your upcoming HIM – it’s down right dangerous.

    You look great Meghann! I’ve always read that the key to shaping and tightening the body is to add in strength training and not do just cardio, and you’re proof of that! Awesome job! πŸ™‚

    I know what you’re saying about rests between sets. I always rush through, even though I know I should give myself time to chill out. Patience is not my virtue!

    Great job Meghann!! I just bought the NROLFW book and I’m looking forward to start! Did you find that the book was easy to follow? I’m always afraid of getting to the gym, not knowing the workouts and then waste time just reading it instead of actually working out. Haha.

    I think you look great in those photos! And to lose inches progressively on your waist and thighs is great! Muscle burns more calories than fat!!!
