1st Blog -"Leaning out"
Friday, February 20, 2009
"You really look like you are leaning out"....The receptionist at the gym said that to me today. I was like "excuse me?"...I didn't know what that meant, she had to explain, lol.
I felt good going in already because I had fit into a pair of workout pants that had been in the closet waiting for a few more pounds ...and they looked pretty good.
I still need to get some more cardio in . My trainer is working me harder everytime . I didn't even realize my heart could beat that hard.
He Took my measurements for the first time since I started in December. My waist is down about 7", hips about 4"....and it makes no logical sense at all but my thighs have either stayed the same or not budged ....too weird. I usually loose on my legs first . I am not complaining though. My legs were always thinner in proportion to the rest of me. ....so a good thing but it defies logic. Muscle takes up less space than fat ,that what I read .
He didn't measure around the bust but I had to buy some new bras to replace the ones I was floating in. Not too many women want bigger legs and smaller boobs..weird shape! but it's getting better !
treadmill warm up -5min @ 3.9mph 10'incline
dumbell chest press( on the ball ) 1st set (20lbs -20x)-too easy /2nd & 3rd set(25lbs-15x)
one-arm dumbell row 3sets-15x w. 25lbs(2)
stationary lunges 3 x 20
shoulder press 3x15 w. 20lbs
back press 3x15w.55lb
tricep pull down 3x15w. 20lb
high bench steps 3 x15 (2)
squats w.45lb weight on stability ball
up-right row 3-15x w. 20lb
side lying leg lift w.resistance 3x20(2)
I think there was some I forgot...and I may not have gotten the names right on a couple, but I know what I mean. I'm still learning . I will start writing them down immediately after. The workout moves too fast to do it during.
No strength training tomorrow but aiming for 45mins min of cardio.
Today, Here's to "leaning out" and looking good in form fitting work out pants!
