Live Fit Day 31 and 32

Friday, November 30, 2012

Posting together because I am a little late blogging. But her is my update-
Day 31
Well this was a leg day and it went pretty well- I had to modify some things because the two small barbells were missing from the gym and I am not ready for a 35 pounder yet. But here is what I did...
Leg extension machine- 2 warm up sets at lighter weights 2 sets of 30
Wide Stance Barbell Squats- I used a 15 pound dumbbell in each hand instead- 4 sets of 15
Leg Press- 4 sets of 8
Walking Barbell Lunges- I used a 10 pound weight in each hand- 3 sets of 20- baby steps
Barbell Step Ups-steeping onto a flat bench-I used an 8 pound weigh in each hand- 3 sets of 10
Pile Dunbell Squats- 3 sets of 15
Standing Calf raises 3 sets of 20, last set to failure
Leg press calf raises- 3 sets of 20
I did a 5 minute warm up but no other cardio

Day 32
Yesterday was my son's birthday- I did my best to stay on track with eating but had a few slip ups- I ate two pieces of crazy bread and licked the icing spatula when I was done with his cake but still not horrible
I did work out and it was a pretty long workout but felt mostly good, here is what I did...
Barbell Curl- 3 sets of 10
Overhead Cable Curl- had to do with dumbbell it was so busy- 3 sets of 10
Cable Hammer Curls- 3 sets of 10 (superset done)

Alternating Hammer Curls- 3 sets of 15
Parallel Bar Dips- 3 sets of 15- very challenging for me but I did it
Skullcrushers- 3 sets of 10
Seated Triceps Press- 3 sets of 10
Triceps Pulldown Cable- 3 sets of 10
Air Bike- 3 sets of 25
Jackknife Sit-Up- 3 sets of 10
Roman Chair Leg raises- 3 sets of 10
And then I did my 30 minutes of cardio on the Arch trainer- I also did a 5 minute warm up.

I am getting a little frustrated because I thought that with adding in the cardio this week I would lose another two pounds but I haven't lost anything in four days. I know that I am building muscle and all and I am going my best to stick to the eating plan but I was kind of excited because I thought that if I could lose 2 a week I could make my goal weight by New Years. But I guess I will just have to hope to make goal weight by the end of the program.
On a good note I did buy myself a new scale for Christmas- even though I am not saving it for Christmas I am opening that sucker as soon as it gets here. The one I have now is a dial one and can be hard to read sometimes- this is digital, measures body fat, and you can track your weights as a user. I know that the body fat thing is not that accurate but it will be interesting to see what it says. I plan on having the gym measure my body fat at the end of the program to see how much it changes. Well I am going to keep on pushing on and get through this week- I have two workouts to go and then my weigh in on Sunday- maybe I will still a little change.

    I have to do measurements and have my hubby do my body fat with calipers (pinchy pinchy!) because my weight have been going up!!! Then again, my shoulder and bicep measurements have been going up, and my waist, belly button, hip, and thigh measurements have been going down. Going the right directions but I want to be more shredded if I'm going to weigh this much! haha. You're doing awesome, just stick with it, and I recommend doing measurements!

    Don't worry- you're doing great! 7lbs in the first 28 days is huge. Learn to stop focusing on the scale so much. Its just one number.
    With all those inches lost I know your clothes are looser. Keep it up- just 7 more weeks to go! Whether you make your goals by end of year or end of program- you ARE doing what you need to do to make them!
