I have already started to notice my core tightening up

I have already started to notice my core tightening up. I really didn't think lifting only weights would do that. It has been really challenging post-pregnancy to get motivation for working out the same way. I've been doing it.like a mom/boss! Thankfully T is super patient with me. I am not the easiest to help at times (I get more frustrated with myself when he is helping me).

I think I am going to hit a 100 lb. deadlift this week!

On a sidenote: Fringe Sport is the bomb! Their customer service is out of this world. To illustrate the point:

Last week T had me start Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength. I have never lifted heavy weights before. I am very familiar with toning, but this is a whole new ball game!

Here are the lifts for my last 3 workouts (I am already gaining strength!):

I am curious to see how much my strength will increase over the coming months. T told me he was taking advantage of the novice effect with me.

We are doing a modified starting strength program geared more towards women. I am not drinking a GMAD (Gallon of Milk a Day) but I am making sure that I am getting enough protein and nutrient dense foods. My favorite snack of the week so far is the hard boiled eggs from Trader Joe's. They are delicious and already boiled so I don't have to do anything except for eat, which I love to do.
