I have always been an out doors girl....a "tomboy". Even tho I am nearly 60 years old I still love working hard outside. My husband was in a trucking accident and has had several surgeries on his back, so I am the one cutting and hauling the wood, working in the yard all summer and going mining for gemstones on the desert. Yes! I am the old lady you saw in the rock pit! Ha Ha. So I haven't really worked hard at exercising, thinking all of this work kept me fit.
I was 5' 11" from the time I was 14. My parents encouraged me to be proud of my height and always stand tall. Caring for my daughter and a car wreck 6 years ago has caused me to loose 2 1/2 inches in height and a lot of back pain. Since signing up for this program I have been working out routinely. Not only have I firmed up, gotten great muscle definition in my arms, but it has helped my back, also!
I work with 2-8lb free weights and my old "lateral thigh trainer" (still haven't figured out what I am training my thighs to do!) (I have seen both of these type items at yard sale and second hand stores, if you are interested in looking for them)
