Just a glimpse

I've been asking my sister to document a strength training workout for me for ages now. She's refused thus far because she didn't want to be the "crazy" in the gym holding the camera. I reassured her that no one would notice or think she was pervy! :) Well, maybe they might...after all she a bit pervy! JK!!!!!

This photo was added by request of the photographer, Margarita. I swear looking at this picture is like looking at me when I was a little girl. I haven't changed much. Is that a good or bad thing?
And the planks begin. Notice I'm still smiling....
Plank pain is mildly starting to settle on my muscles, but I'm still good.
Push Up holds! Blah! Double Blah!
He'd usually have me do about 4 sets at 45 seconds each set or until he'd notice all my muscles were shaking from the agony of holding this dang position.
Actually, this photo is me cheating. I should've been about 6 inches from the ground.

Another request from the photographer. She loves her great lighting.
I love this shot! I'm working my lower abs here.
So glad baby girl got this camera. I just wish she'd be OK with letting me behind the lens. I was stretching my legs out here!
Oh, that reminds me!!! A serious complaint to my gf's out there!! why didnt anyone tell me my butt was so HUGE!!! Really?! I'll have to post a post of non post-able pictures because i was NOT ok with some full body shots!
Back to the floor. I promise you...I could NEVER train with Margarita in the gym. She's forever making me laugh. I can't help it! I can't control myself around her!

Ok, fast forward a bit...I've been at it for a while now. Notice anything different?! In case you haven't noticed. I'M NOT SMILING!!!
This is me counting down the seconds. I'm in the zone.... I remember when I'd get to this place and try to mentally escape Chadwick would say "Marce, hey! Focus. Come back to can't get out of this just be here and own it"
Almost done....
Haha!! this picture is so funny. I don't even know why. She's such a distraction.
Thanks for stopping by! Like I said this was just about 15-20 minutes of an hour and half of torture. It's so great to know that only God can totally take the credit for this.
