Okay, gonna start a journal. I welcome any and all input. I'm a noob here and working on flattening my belly, toning thighs etc. to get rid of the excess BF that is still there. Goal is to increase strength and be toned. My Dad jogged for 25+ years and now lifts weights after retiring. At almost 70, he's in fantastic shape and he's my RL role model. His legs muscles do NOT move when he walks. His endurance is crazy!
I tried fitday and it's an oddish set up. I'll play with it again over the weekend. I keep an actual book journal to track calories and use calorie king web site.
today: 4 am ish (ack, I slept in until 4:20 am, shoot me!)
work out dvd julian michaels backside 54 min circuit training - functional work out.
I can everything but the bicycle. I'll have to pause it in order to maste that move. Next week I switch out my work out dvd to new body scuplting 1 that I bought. I'm excited about it!
calories so far:
kashi pumpkin spice granola 180 calories
dannon lite yoguat 60 cal
string cheese 50 calories ( no banana or regular yogurt to make my whey drink and I need that extar to stomach eit.) must go food shopping!
2 rolled oats thins - 140 calories.
(re: low protein, yesterday was 1 1/2 egg w/ cheese. I rotate the breakfast)
Going to lift during lunch. It's chest day and I upped my weights Tuesday so this maybe interesting.
home / after work: 2 mile walk -if possible, supposed to rain, but I walked in the rain saturday, snow on monday, so I can do it! lol.
No pilates today, will see if I can fit it after the walk. It depends on how tired I am. It's only 20 minutes, so I will see if I cna tlk myself into it. hehee.
I average 1500 - 2000 calories. I was 1200+, but that became too low for me. Once I upped it, my excess weight 9especially the belly) started falling off. I am wearing pants today that did not fit 10 days ago! I'm so excited!
start 8/21/08 - size 22/24 womens
today 12/4/08 size 14 juniors (my hips and thighs are much smaller than my wasit!)
Gonna try on my size 12 misses pants when I get home to see if they fit as well.
