The New Rules of Lifting for Women --Starting again

Monday, January 26, 2009

I'm back on the bandwagon again. I did this program for 3 months last year. Quiting when I became too tired to continue. I'm more motivated this time around. So back on Stage 1 for the next 6 weeks. I got some really results last time around, but let my calories dip too low. So here's the plan: This program 3x a week (MWF). Cardio those days as well, varying between elliptical, bike and running. Also keeping up on the Jillian Michaels Shred DVD around 3-4x a week. I'm ready to have some real change!!

Ok, it doesn't make much sense, but I've gained 5 lbs. I've been working out, doing cardio (4x) and weights (3x) a week. Watching what I eat like a hawk. Ticks me off. Part of me feels like a failure and wants to cut everything out. Live on protein shakes and all bran. I had one minor slip meal, but that can't be 5lbs. That would have been 15,000 calories, and I can tell you that I didn't consume that, not even close. Maybe 600 calories, and I didn't eat much else the rest of the day.

So back to page one. Doing what I can. Working out 45 minutes on the eliptical today and doing weights. Cutting out some other foods that might be hurting me. Can't figure that lightly sea salted almonds could be hurting me, but they're gone. SO ANGRY RIGHT NOW!!!

    Sorry to hear about your set back. You may be doing this already but be sure you are drinking tons of water. When you workout you retain water...a woman can retain up to 10 pounds of water weight!

The more you sweat, the more water you must drink. Heavily active people usually need a lot more than the suggested 8 glasses.

I hope you are on track soon. Looks like you are using your anger as motivation..that's good!

Just Starting Out

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

I'm just starting up on this site, but have been working out hard for the last 2 weeks. Trying to lose 11 lbs if not more. I really want this to happen, before summer. I want to look good in a swimsuit at The Lake of the Ozarks. My man loves me the way I am, even calls me skinny. But I still see areas that I want to improve and want to get rid of the extra little flab that I see on my legs and stomach.

I'm cleaning up my diet. Got rid of a lot of sugar. Just keeping the dark chocolate. Up-ing my fiber and protein intake. Drinking more water and green tea. Working out 30-45 minutes a day on different machine each day (no letting my body get used to any one movement). Also doing weights 3x a week. Looking forward to getting the Jillian Michaels Shred DVD and starting that. Might also get back into New Rules of Weight Lifting for Women starting after the weekend at the lake in Feb.

Just have to keep going. Getting rid of the sugar and carbs. Keep my ideal body image in my mind everytime I pick up a fork.
