So, the other day, I was absentmindedly stroking my upper arm when I felt kind of a lump. I thought, "Oh, my allergy shot got swollen this time, bummer." Then I realized I had my shot the day before--the lump was actually *gasp* MUSCLE!
I am still pretty scrawny, but considering I've quickly gone from barely being able to do 6 girly pushups to easily being able to do 12 girly pushups in one set, I think it's pretty good. I'm still doing cardio 5 times a week (usually 6, but I aim for 5) and the strength training is three times a week.
So yay me! I am on my way to being the fit skinny girl, not the skinny girl who is just skinny because of genetics. :D
