Sheesh....

I certainly think you look like you go to the gym...you have gorgeous arms and shoulders!

I really don't get this women. If she doesn't like the way things are done here then she should just go and find a different forum to hang out in.

Anyway, you obviously work very hard and I think you have a lot to be proud of. :)

Sorry to hear about that Marcina

I can relate of being bullied and harrassed when I was growing up. Even family would tease me about my weight. They would say things like I would probably get a boyfriend if I lost weight. Then on top of that I would get bullied and threaten at school, that I was going to get my ass kicked for looking at someone the wrong way. Anyways enough about my passed, it's my passed forgiving and forgotten.

I know living in the present, I feel fantastic, I'm fit and in the best shape I've ever been in. I look at all the people who use to tease me and they are all drinkers, smokers, fat and out of shape and put on 5 yrs on their faces.
Now they are looking up to me, asking me how I look so good. And that they wished they could get in shape and eat better.

So, if you turn something negative into positive life works out so much easier.

Even though it doesn't feel real on the internet but it still hurts when you read things that bother you. But what I do if I haven't met anyone on here in person, is I try not to take things at heart. It's most likely someone wants to get an reaction out of their comments. And she got what she wanted. Just ignore it, she'll get more pissed if no one says anything because she doesn't have anything to fight about if no one else is fighting back.

She's probably out of shape, with low self esteem and that maybe she wishes she could be like all of the buffed and well fit females on here. Or just with low self esteem with a nice fit body. ? I dunno, It might be her way to express her feelings.
I guess will have to wait and see if she posts any pics of her.
but she still a mean mean person. ;)

Again I'm sorry you felt hurt. Just take it out on the weights, instead of exhausting yourself trying to reason with her.

You looking great as always. You're are rocking Marcina !!!!!
That why you win them all :)

Aww bless you guys! Such kind words. I really appreciate it.

I do admit, I feel more motivated to kick ass in the gym now.
The other day I used my anger to fuel my workout. WOW. I'm still sore from it! It was intense.

You have such a beautiful body Marcie, don't take her words to your heart.

Some people just don't have the social skills to be able to understand how everyone else feels and usually they're the ones talking most brutally and bluntly. They just are just completely lacking of empathy - to understand how everyone else feels and so their social skills are very monotonous as they treat others the way they themselves think they should be treated.

You did a right thing to stand up for yourself and I'm SO proud of you sweet heart. :wink:

Rock on my rocking beauty! <3

I started an awesome exercise routine yesterday. Something I picked up in Oxygen where you do a push/pull routine alternating heavy and light weights. It really hit the muscles and felt great. I was actually fatigued after my workout!

But alas, I have managed to catch some sort of cold virus. Last Saturday I went to a club to see some bands, plus the hockey game was on so the place was packed. I wish people would LEAVE THEIR GERMS AT HOME!!! Blarg. It sucks cuz I was sick in March for a week. I guess my immune system isn't back to full strength yet if I caught a cold that easily. Or maybe it was because last week I went running and got caught in the rain. I got home SOAKED! I went straight to the shower though.
Ehhhh.. I'm just gonna rest today and take my echinacea and eat lots of nanners. So far it's just a runny nose.

Lol I love you guys. :P

Yeah, I'm having a big cup of tea right now. Also, I still have a good appetite so that's good. I should be over this cold in no time!

Wooo my cold is GONE! YEAH!!

I slept a ton the past couple days. I'm pretty tired now though because I only got 2 hours of sleep. I woke up hungry and had to have breakfast.. Lately I've been awake at the wee hours of the morning so my body is used to having an early meal.

Today I'm gonna hit the gym! Because of the stupid illnesses I've been getting.. Like the flu in March, then IBS issues in April (diarrhea boooooooooooo!) and now another cold, my goals are totally off track right now. It's really frustrating cuz I feel like I have to start all over again. I really hope I stop getting sick and can workout regularly from now on!

Yep, I think that woman was a stright up jerk. You're the greatest, Marcina.

So, how did you get rid of that cold? Just sleep? I've been fighting something nasty for the past couple of days, and I can't seem to kick it.

Are you gonna post the details of your new workout?

Sleeping, eating, taking echinacea.

dude last night I DID NOT sleep! I guess my body is used to sleeping all day. Now the nice weather is back and my body thinks it's wake up time! Gonna be tired tonight after the gym, that's for sure!

Yes, I should post my workouts because it really helps with my progress. I gotta remember to take my notebook to the gym!

Thank youuuu!!


I took it easier last night cuz I don't wanna overdo it. I did chest, triceps, and shoulders. I did it at home. All I have is 15 pound weights so I did a variety of exercises to keep it challenging.

Tricep presses, dips, chest press, chest flies, tricep kickbacks, lateral raises and military presses. I did 15 reps on the easier exercises, and 6 on the harder ones. I did about 3 sets each alternating easy and hard workouts.

Yesterday was an active rest day. I did lots and lots of walking. It was such a beautiful day, I didn't want to spend it indoors. Me and Silvio went shopping and bought some clothes at Value Village. Then we went to the mall and had lunch. I hit the salad and juice bar (but was very disappointed in the variety of fresh veggies and fruits. Also, my juice was warm, but at least it was freshly made). After lunch we window shopped a bit and went to the park.
I was so tired yesterday because I woke up at 6:30. I ended up going to bed at 8 because I was sooo tired! Lately I've been waking up a lot in the middle of the night because it's hot. It's cloudy today though. I'm a bit disappointed because I wanted a nice day like yesterday again!

Today I'm deciding what I should do.. Go for a jog.. Workout at home, or wait for Silvio to wake up and then go to the gym?

Boo hoo I got the flu!! AGAIN!

Srsly, this is getting old. The shitty thing is that once you get sick, and you recover, your immune system is weakened for all sorts of other bugs to attack ya!

Last week was going great. I was eating really clean. Lots of yummy raw foods, going outside, doing sprints, lifting weights, getting lean and buff! Then my sister calls me. She and her daughter are sick, and wanted me to take them to the doctor and help take care of the little one. How can I say no? They are my family, I love them. So, I took my sister and niece to the doctor, spent the day helping out and stuff. The same day I got a job interview and it went rather well.

The next day was great too. I went to the gym and did legs. Then Friday, I got a call back from the place I applied for a job at. I didn't get it. Since it was the first job interview I'd had since October, even though I've been applying EVERYWHERE I was very upset. I got depressed and was very angry at myself for not getting the job. I guess with my being upset, and working out the day before, and being exposed to the flu virus was the perfect recipe for my body to get afflicted with it. Yesterday I couldn't eat anything except for 2 bananas. It was a stomach virus. Very nasty. Today I've been able to eat but still a bit queasy and have little appetite.

The good news is, I just made this AWESOME raw banana ice cream. I got the recipe from Bif Naked (who else?)

2 frozen bananas
2 tablespoons of raw tahini
Some Vega (optional)
Blend it (a hand blender works) and OM YUMMY IN MY TUMMY!!! Perfect food for a hot day paired with danger belly. It's a must try. :)
