May recap and June goals (with progress pics)

Thursday, May 31, 2012

May recap

Weight goal: Lose a kilo. That seems achievable and would bring me to 78.6kg.
emoticon I lost 1.1kg! I now weigh 78.5kg and have lost 8.8kg total.
(American friends: Lost 2.5lb this month. Now weigh 173lb. Total 19.4lb)

Nutrition: Iím still focusing on getting in more fruit and veg and less junk. I am also going to start tracking more often. Lets aim for 3 days per week!
emoticon I didn't track much, maybe once a fortnight. I definitely ate more fruit and veg this month, and my eating was generally better.

Water: I drink heaps of water, this one is fine!.
emoticon Still guzzlin'!

Exercise: Run my first 5k!
emoticon I did it!! 42m04s.

Exercise #2: Start my new weights program. I met with my trainer last night and pretty much told him to give me a mans program. I told him I wanted to try high weight, low reps, and he was really excited to get started. Apparently I am the first woman to ever ask him for a program like that!
emoticon I am rocking my weights program. And, as a bonus, it only takes me 25-30minutes including the warm up! Lower reps = less time.

June goals

Weight goal: Get to the 10kg lost mark. That would require me to lose 1.2kg, which is doable. It would put me at 77.3kg.

Nutrition: Keep on, keeping on! I guess what I am doing is working, so why mess with success?

Water: I need to make sure I keep my fluid intake up during these colder months. Herbal tea is helping with this, and it gives me something warm to hold on to.

Exercise: Keep up with my current routine, which is 2 days boxing, 3 days weights and 1 run if I feel like it. Again, why mess with success? My boxing class is different every week, and my weights program changes every 6 weeks, so my body won't get used to anything.

    I love doing a Man Program. I get much better results when I lift heavy.

    Look at you! Great job. I had to laugh at "colder months" - in Canada we are approaching (hopefully) some warmer weather finally!! It's been cold here all month & I for one am ready for shorts.

You look great & more than that, you met your goals. I'm proud of you!

I love that you're doing "the man's program". What's your reason? Lately I've been considering the switch... I've read a lot of recent articles that call the 'bulking up with higher weights' a myth. Women don't bulk up that way, so why not train faster/stronger?

All in all, good job!
