So I guess I'm supposed to tell a little about myself...

I'm 43 years old, been vegetarian for about a year now, and just began a serious weight training program about 5 weeks ago. I'm came here because I wanted to pick up some training tips and advice since I'm pretty much going it alone.

I have lifted in the past, but never really stuck with it. I have a new attitude, new body (lost 150 lbs) and have been active and doing a lot of cardio and sculpt type work, along with yoga, for the past 3-1/2 years.

I tend to build muscle relatively easily - my goals are to shape and define rather than simply build bulk. I am also working on strength, as my bulk belies my strenth - I look stronger than I am :wink:

On the personal front - I'm married, mother of 1 (daughter, 24 years old) and have 3 dogs, 3 cats, a bird and a turtle that share my house with me and my DH.

So I guess that about covers my intro - any questions, just ask me :)
