Feeling firmer and muscular... (plus update)
Friday, January 21, 2011
Well, I have never been any good at doing chin ups, even when I was younger and weighed a lot less. But my trainer has decided to get me doing negative chins to start me off and these are the very reason that my arms are now crazily pumped.
I had to try a few different ways to do it before I found a way that suited me and my current level and I managed to do about 8 for each set. So I am now determined to be able to get myself to do at least one chin up and feel great for it.
Tonight I was being quite self indulgent and was admiring my muscles in the mirrors in the gym, big headed yes I know. But I just can not get over how well I can feel them developing and I am actually really pleased with them so far. I will try to post pictures tomorrow.
I am also trying to figure out how to correctly tense the muscles individually which is a lot more difficult than it sounds, especially if you do not consciously tense your muscles much. So I am having a go and have found my lats and pecks over the past week and can actually see my triceps moving. I might have a go at the poses over the weekend and see how difficult they are and what they feel like.
Desperately I am avoiding standing on the scales as I want to go by feel and sight for what I want, although I did get the urge earlier but told myself not to be silly because it is not about weight!!!!!
My interviews on Thursday went brilliantly and I was told I would get invited to a second interview for one of them and the other is a three step process so will have to wait and see. Although I have managed to land an amazing interview for next week with the one and only PRADA!!!!!! OMG I know, I can not believe it and am really looking forward to it. Not to be too big headed but I usually interview really well so am keeping fingers crossed that one of them will pay off.
The temp role that I am currently doing is due to end next week but they told me today that they would like to extend it for another week but were understanding that if I was to get an offer elsewhere for permanent work then I would of course go. One of the managers has also offered to write me a personal reference if I need it which I thought was great and am really grateful for all their help.
So all in all feeling great, feeling positive and loving what is happening to my body at the moment!!!!
