4th day! Bowflex training

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Yup true story...4th day completed. emoticon
Also,I completed the long task of going through files and organizing them from Type and date. Yesterday I spent a horrible 7 hours going through a HUGE bin of Old papers,mail,bills ect...I had to go through them to throw anything Under 7 years away,see what needed to be shredded all that long brain draining stuff. But today...I went through everything I kept from that bin and Organized it...All my Utilities,Medical Bills,Mortgage, Tax,school loans...ANYTHING that I need to keep record of and it's now in pretty little labeled folders and Put away. So proud...I love being organized! emoticon Also makes me feel "adult" like...teehee.

Yesterday was a pretty draining today I told myself I'm taking it easy. So,I woke up and had a cup of coffee and played all my facebook games that I'm addicted to. Then Did a bit of the files,then Went to work out..took a Nice lovely cold shower after my work out...FELT SOOOO GOOD! Then back to files and Now I'm done. emoticon I feel so accomplished today.

OH! So,I loved my workout today because I pretty much know everything by heart. My bowflex routine is burned into my brain. So it took me less time to get through it cause I wasn't stopping to look in the notes on what was next. Then after my whole workout I tracked it in my work out journal. Today I felt it....My shoulders,legs and core was burning. I did up the Lbs more because in the book it says after each set..your muscles are suppose to feel tired,Then wait 30-45 seconds before starting your next set. Since the work out plan targets certain areas they try and get you to get the most out of that exercise. So it's important your not under doing it also not over doing it. So,I found the perfect balance of Weight to put where I can complete a whole set and feel that burn..but not to where my arms wanna fall off before I finish lol. So,feels good I'm finding my way in this routine.

Day 4 of Bowflex:
CHEST: Bench Press 2/15
BACK: Seated Lat Row 2/15
SHOULDERS: Standing Lat Raise 2/15
ARMS: Standing Bicep curls 2/15
Tricep laying extentions 2/15
LEGS: Extentions 2/15
curls 2/15
hip extentions 2/15
TRUNK: resisted ab crunch 2/15
Standing hip abduction 2/15
Lower back extention 2/15
Trunk rotation 2/15
Resisted Reverse Crunch 2/15

Pretty much the same. OH! AND I looked in the mirror today and I think my shoulders are starting to tone up a little bit...which is nice...I have very poofy shoulders..almost like When I retain water not only does my hips get poofy but my shoulders poof out too. I could be seeing things,Maybe no real changes are showing but I swear I saw it...and Thats what matters,right? It's not about what others see on me or about me...It's how I view myself. If I look in the mirror and see changes and I like what I see..that's all that matters...even if it's all in my head. TEEHEE. emoticon

    Good work on the organization! That's something I need to do at some point when I have the energy and don't have anything else extremely more important (yeah it might never happen).

    Think back a year ago - if someone told you that you'd be doing all that exercising and really enjoying it, would you have believed them? Learning to enjoy exercise will help you stay on your journey to better health. Seeing changes in your body also helps your motivation. Whether or not there are noticeable changes doesn't matter as much as feeling the changes and believing in the changes. We look in the mirror every day and see minor changes (good, bad, or neutral) so we often miss how those changes add up. Others who haven't seen us in a while have a better chance of noticing the changes, but they might feel awkward mentioning it. If you want to make a comparison, take progress pictures once a month or so, in the same place, with the same lighting, wearing the same or very similar clothes. You'll really see the changes then!

    You know what, it's NOT all in your head, because you're making lots of changes and I have no doubt your body's showing it! emoticon I'm so proud of all your hard work!!

    And honestly I'm a little jealous of your organization - hehe! emoticon Hubby's sister keeps all of our important documents because she knows how bad we are about stuff like that. emoticon
