Day 8 Chalene Extreme

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Hello all my emoticon, I hope all is well today with everyone. I woke up this morning with my mind made up that I was going to give it my all with my workout today. I even took Chalene's advice and invited my cousin to join in. For it being her first time strength training I have to say she did a pretty good job.

Today's workout was the second go round with the Burn Circuit 1 and I have to say I definitely felt more stronger than last Sunday. I need to work on my form a little more but other than that I think I did really well. I also recorded myself working out so I could see just how my form was, I'm going to use these videos along with the various pictures I am taking of myself to track my progress.

I successfully completed all 12 reps with all the exercises except the pushups those are going to take more time I 'm not rushing though because I am not trying to injure myself. Weigh day is in three days and I'm not all that concerned with what the scale says because honestly I'll take inches over inital pound loss. Don't get me wrong if the number on the scale goes down then I am going to be happy but I'm not as pressed about it anymore. Muscle weighs more than fat and I'd rather that be the reason why the scale goes up then all this useless jelly I'm carrying around.

Until next time,

    I agree. I'd rather my clothes falling off then the number on the scale. Not only does muscle weigh more but it also takes up less room than fat.

    Absolutely! Great's more about how you feel than how much you weigh. It took someone telling me I have over 145 lbs of lean body mass to realize I will never be able to rely on the scale to reflect how I look and feel.
