ChaLEAN Extreme Day 5

Thursday, March 03, 2011

I was up late last night (well, late for me). I got to bed around 10:30. I certainly wasn't going to try getting up at 2:30 to exercise.
Busy day at work and then I dropped my car off at the mechanic for it's 120,000 mile service. Did a little browsing in Sports Authority and Marshalls but didn't buy anything. I did pick up some peanut M&M's for the candy dish at work. I will not eat any of them. Then I picked up my car and paid my mechanic with a big kiss....mechanic is my husband :-)
I came home and took butter and eggs out of the fridge. Then I did my ChaLEAN workout.

Here's my Burn Circuit 3
Sumo Squat with Overhead Press ~ W-10 R-11
Lunge with Calf Raise ~W-17.5 R-12
Squat with Lateral Raise ~ W-7.5 R-12
Lunge with Frontal Press ~ W-10 R-12
Squat with Calf Raise ~ W-17.5 R-12
Sumo Squat with Delt Raises ~ W-7.5 R-12
Squat with Double Overhead Press ~ W-10 R-12
Lunge with Lateral Raise ~ W-7.5 R-12 (6 on each leg)
Sumo Squat with Calf Raise ~ W-17.5 R-12
Yes, I can do half pound increments because I used my fancy new weights today:

They are really nice. The only drawback is that they are placed kind of far away from where I work out because I didn't want them in the middle of the rug. I have to pause the DVD sometimes to change weights. Not a huge problem.
These are my other weights:

After working out, I mixed up some of the espresso chocolate espresso chunk cookies and put them in the fridge to mature. They definitely taste better if they have been sitting in the fridge for at least 12 hours. I'll be baking them tomorrow to bring to the Silicon Valley Scale Modelers Kick Off Classic model contest on Saturday. I'll be working registration. Very similar to my last Saturday.
Have a good night, all! Tomorrow is Friday!!!!!!

    Those weights look nice. I need something like that. I only have the small hand weights and they are only 3 lbs each, not enough for me to lift on a regular basis. I also have 5 lb kettlebells but they are not heavy enough any more either. Maybe I will upgrade when the tax return comes along. :)

ChaLEAN Extreme Day 4, C25K W3D2, ChaLEAN before pictures

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

Today was day 4 of ChaLEAN Extreme. I did the Burn Intervals which is about 45 minutes of 2 minutes of high intensity cardio followed by 3 minutes of muscle endurance weight training (light weights). I ended up using my old regular 5 pound weights. Tomorrow I'll try out the fancy new ones. Then I did Ab Burner which is 10 minutes of abdominal exercises.
I will be doing my C25K as soon as I finish this blog.
I made an agreement with APIRLRAIN888 this morning that if she posted her bikini challenge pictures, I'd post the pictures I took on Sunday morning (very early and I hadn't combed my hair) before starting the ChaLEAN Extreme. You may recall that I posted my stats. Here they are again:
Chest: 31.25
Upper arm: 11
Waist: 25.5
Hips: 34.5
Abductors: 37.5 (Yes, I do have quite the saddlebags)
Thighs: 21.25 (both are the same)
Here are the pictures...yikes!!!

We'll revisit these in 30 days (well, 26 but anyway).

ChaLEAN Extreme Day 3

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

It's kind of weird that day 2 is a rest day, but that's what the workout calendar says. Today was Day 3. I got up this morning and did Burn Circuit 2.
Sumo Squat with Bicep Curl - W 10 R 12 (I'll try 12 next time)
Lunge with One-Arm Tricep Extencion - - W 8 R 12 (I'll try 10 next time)
Dead Lift Row - - W 15 R 12 (I'll try 17.5 next time since I"ll have the fancy weights)
Sumo Squat with Overhead Tricep Extension-- W15 R12 (and I didn't hit myself in the head...bonus)
Dead Lift with Double Row -- W15 R 12
Bowler's Lunge with Single-Arm Row - - W 15 R 12
Bicep Curls with Abductor Balance - - W 8 R 12 (I'll try 10 or 12 next time)
Forward Lean Lunge with Double Row - - W 15 R 12
Triple-Threat Push Ups - 12 (on toes..but barely)
My arms are feeling it tonight. An excellent workout.
Me being me, I ended up dancing around for 45 minutes and going up and down the stairs between the labs a dozen times. Lots of exercise today.
When I wasn't walking up and down the stairs at work, I got fiber packets ready for our study subjects t his week and checking the new HPLC. I finally got it running leak free. Now I just have to decide what wavelengths I want to use on the fluorescence detector.
When I got home, there was a giant box from Amazon. My new weights. Unfortunately, the box weighed 125lbs. I had to leave it outside until my husband got home. They're going to be fun to play with.
There was a small package from Amazon as well. Jillian Michaels new DVD, Ripped in 30. It has 4 workouts. Supposedly you do each for 5 or 6 days before moving on to the next one. She wants you to take at least 1 rest day and as many as 2. So you do each workout for a week. I watched the first one. Very much like the 30 day shred. 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio, 1 minute of abs in 3 circuits. I'll have to wait until I'm done with ChaLEAN before trying it out.
We had some turkey burgers, asparagus and Alexia onion rings for dinner. Super yummy.
Have a great night!!

    I get the rest day on day 2: it's for those who found the workout was a shock to the system -- doesn't seem to be your issue!!!!

Have fun! Sounds intense! The food stuff (last blog and this one) sound good. I steer away from tofu after learning that soy can interfere with thyroid function.

My daughter is vegetarian and she doesn't eat well until she comes home from school, but there's been too many stressors, so, she is trying to eat more regularly. I make her a grilled smart bacon (veggie protein), egg, and provolone cheese grilled sandwich in the mornings -- the smell lingers for awhile in the house . . . .

C25K W3D1 and Tofu Scramble for Dinner

Monday, February 28, 2011

I thought I'd start off the week early and got up at 2:30 to get my run in. I did add on a little time to the runs making it a total of 11 minutes running (that way I'd get a mile in). Then I hiked for a little while at a 15% incline. When I ran out of time, I stopped.
The knees have been a little sore all day but they started out that way and aren't any worse after running then they were before.
It was a very busy day at work. I went up and down between the two labs at least 10 times. I have over 17000 steps today according to my fitbit.
When I got home, I started a load of laundry and took a couple of eggs out of the fridge to warm up.
King Arthur Flour had sent me some milled flax seed to test out and review, so I found a recipe on their site for brownies with fruit, nuts and flax. I haven't cut them yet, but the batter tasted good.

Then I started on dinner. Tofu scramble with onions, bell peppers and Trader Joe's Harvest Hodgepodge vegetables. I added lots of curry powder, some garlic and cayenne. It turned out really well. A piece of wheat toast completed the tasty meal.

Now I just have to get my lunch and snacks together for tomorrow. I may have the tofu scramble if my husband doesn't want to take it.
Have a great night!!

Started ChaLEAN Extreme Today.

Sunday, February 27, 2011

I did my measurements and even took pictures. I am brave enough to post measurements but not pictures.
Chest: 31.25
Upper arm: 11
Waist: 25.5
Hips: 34.5
Abductors: 37.5 (Yes, I do have quite the saddlebags)
Thighs: 21.25 (both are the same)
I did the Burn Circuit 1 this morning. Since it was the first time through any of the workouts, I went a little light. I am going to need some heavier weights, though. The heaviest dumbbells I've got are 15 pounds. Those were just too light for the squats.
Afterward, I was feeling like doing a little cardio so I jumped on the elliptical for 50 minutes. That felt good after a day off yesterday.
I was really hungry for my Ezekial English muffin and almond butter after that workout.
We went to Trader Joe's and did some grocery shopping. We went to the Taqueria for lunch and I got a carne asada taco. I ordered two because they're usually small, but these were gigantic. They used the 6" tortillas instead of the 4.5" ones and put a lot of meat in. My husband ate the second one.
I decided to price weights online. I finally decided to go for the BowFlex SelectTech's that Chalene uses. She isn't a whole lot taller than me and it looked like she didn't have any problem with them being too big. We already have way to many free weights sitting in the living room: 2's, 3's, 5's, 8's, 10's , a single 12, and 15's. I know I need another 12 and at least 20 immediately. I have a feeling I'll be need 25, 30, maybe more for this program. The heavier the weight, the more expensive it is. I figured why not get adjustable. The one's I ordered go up to 50 pounds each. I doubt I'll need anything heavier than that. I guess I'll see on Thursday how they are. They should be arriving Wednesday but that's my running/Burn Intervals and Ab Burner day.
I guess I should get going on some laundry and swiffervac.
Have a great evening!

BUT I have to say, if I wasn't training for HM! I think I will just do p90x! I see soo much result! and I can't believe I can get my HR as high as running, even burn the same about of cals!

and the results is almost immediate!

BUT having said that! my hubby was on wk 3 when he took a week off for conference, not so pretty coming back. so goes to show how fast your body goes back if you don't exercise!

scary thought for maintenance for me in the future.

    Sounds like ChaLean is the next big thing in fitness. I have a few friends that are going to try it.

    I really like CE. I haven't made it through all 3 phases though. I took beginning and ending measurements the first time I did the Burn Phase...I lost 7 lbs and 7 inches and I probably should have used heavier weights. I also wasn't 100% with my eating. Can't wait to see your results. Good luck with it!!
