    And .. Here We Go! Lexagon's Journey.

    I decided it was about time I started journaling somewhere a little more public where other people can see what I'm doing and get it all out in the open. So here we go!

    Stats:
    Age: 31
    Starting Weight: 204 (Oct 4 2011)
    Current Weight: 195 (Nov 13 2011)
    Workout Plan: Jamie Eason LiveFit

    Starting working out on my own in Oct, a couple days a week doing weight training and laying off the cardio (maybe 1-2 days). And this was working well, but I was having trouble with my eating. I found Jamie's program on BB.COM, did the research and decided this was the best bet for me right now. I do much better with a structured plan than having to come up with everything on my own (at least when I start).

    Started this on Oct. 17th. I am now in Phase 2 - Week 5! Just added cardio back in yesterday and that was a butt kicker! But I pushed my way through it and had some great results.

    My plan is just to be in better physical condition and health. Weight lifting has been great for my motivation and drive. I feel more excited to be in the gym seeing results all the time. I've already done more than I could have imagined and in my head this is the right way to do it. I've done "biggest loser" @ my gym twice and had great results, but the intensity and rapid weight loss just lead to me gaining it all back. Slowing down and taking time is already proving to be a much better position.

    So that's where I'll start. I'll post work-outs and food as I go along. Just want a place where I can be accountable for myself and get some motivation from other people at the same time. I'm tired of being lazy and using that as an excuse to be fat.

    And Day #2 - This is actually for yesterday. 11/14


    Wide-Grip Barbell Bench Press (5x8) - 8 x 45, 8x50 (2), 8x60, 8x65
    Pushups (3x15)
    Dumbbell Flyes - 3 sets of 10 (12.5lbs)

    Elliptical (30 mins medium) - had to skip due to a soccer practice

    Day #30 of LiveFit, can't believe I've made it that far already, seems almost like I started yesterday. Today was an intense workout. All the ab work really got me, but it felt good. I wish I could have run, but I was really short on time so I'll make that up today or tomorrow instead. At least I had fun working out and doing some new things. I'm really happy about the results I have seen so far. I've been losing weight slowly, but I feel like my body is looking so much better. I have to get some new progress pics. I just keep forgetting!

    Works just really busy right now. These are the days I wish I had an assistant, but something tells me the assistant doesn't get to have one .. haha! It's ok makes life more interesting. And in a week things will calm down for me a little. Just have to get through hiring this class of people and I'm good til after the holidays.

    Had the absolute worst time sleeping last night. I was exhausted, but I couldn't sleep for the life of me. Tonights workout should prove to be interesting.

    For Tues 11/16

    Just wasn't feeling it today. Only got a couple hours of sleep the night before and I was exhausted all day. But I managed to make it through all my work and decided to rearrange my workouts a little to take advantage of the extra time I had. Instead of doing legs I did Arms. I was supposed to make up some cardio too, but when I got on the treadmill I just wasn't feeling the push. So I did a 10 minute warm-up to get a little in and moved to the weights.

    Great arm workout. I felt awesome afterwards. Seeing some great results and slowly adding more weights as the weeks go on. Haven't felt negatively about anything I've done in the last 5 weeks.

    Workout:

    Barbell Curl - 3 sets 10 (50lbs)
    Overhead Cable Curl (superset) 3x10 (15 lbs)
    Cable Hammer Curls Rope (superset) 3x10 (15lbs)
    Alternate Cable Curl - 3 sets 10 (20lbs)
    Assisted Dip Machine 3x15 - 10x140 - 15 x 130 - 15 x 120
    Skullcrushers - 3 sets of 10 (15lbs)
    Seated Tricep Press - 3 sets of 10 (17.5 lbs)
    Tricep Pushdown (Rope) - 3 sets of 10 (35 lbs)

    I was really feeling it after this workout, but it felt great to get into the gym. Glad I didn't convince myself to go home instead.

    Had the night to myself as well. Got all my "chores" done and was able to sit down for a little while and get some video game time in. Something I rarely get anymore with such a busy schedule. Felt nice to relax a little bit. Decided to take my AI 3Z before bed and slept like a rock. Woke up super refreshed this AM ready for another day. And I better be tonight is LEGS!

    Thanks Hope!

    Haha .. ooops I'm a couple days behind, dang busy life! AT least it's the gym getting in the way of my journaling and not the other way around.

    Wed 11/16
    Leg Extensions - 2 sets 30 (light - 45lbs)
    Wide Stance Squat - 2 sets 15 light (30lbs) 2 sets heavy to failure 10x50, 10x50
    Leg Press - 4 sets 8 (90, 95x2, 100)
    Walking Barbell Lunges - 2 sets 20 (20lbs)
    Plie Dumbbell Squats - 2 sets 10 (15lbs)
    Standing Calf Raise - 3 sets 20 last set to failure (120lbs)
    Leg Press Calf Raise - 3 sets 20 last set to failure (20x100, 20x110, 20x110)

    Great leg day, my legs were definitely feeling it after this. I had that she's obviously just done a leg workout walk. Haha! Got another big leg day on Friday too, can't wait. For some reason those are always my favorite workouts. I like chest too, but legs are just fun!

    Had to hurry out of the gym to get to the kids soccer practice on time. No biggie though it's just down the street. They made it into the final tournament so it's soccer all weekend. WE were all really surprised, they started out as a really goofy looking team, but they have some strong players that pushed them through. I hope they can keep it up. It'd be good for them!

    Thurs 17th - Shoulders/Cardio

    Cardio Warm-up: 13:34 @ an average of 3.5 speed - .85 mi I ran most of it and it was a good stretch for my legs. I'm just not 100% behind cardio right now so I did what I could.

    Smith Machine Military Press - 3 sets 10 (45lbs)
    Upright Dumbbell Row (superset) 3x10 - 12.5lb
    Standing Dumbbell Military Press (super set) 3x10 - 12.5lb
    Incline Bench Front Dumbbell Raise - 3 sets 10 (7.5lb)
    Lateral Raise - 3 sets 10 (10lb)
    Rear-Delt Raise - 3 sets 10 (5lb) - by far my weakest exercise

    Felt like a great workout. Was glad I got some cardio in as I haven't been feeling it this week. Hoping that changes next week. I guess it's harder to add cardio back in than I thought - haha! The rest of the workout was great. Had fun doing some new things and see how far I could push myself. My shoulders were def feeling it by the end of the night. I anticipate they are going to be a little sore by Fri/Sat.

    Food was pretty much on par for the week so far. I'm a little short here and there and I need to work on that. I tried to make my meals a little bigger, but I just can't eat that much. I'll have to figure something else out. I don't want to end up short changing myself. I've done that before and it sucks.

    Took advantage of AI Sports White Friday Sale and made sure to stock up on my supps. Now I just have to find a protein powder that I really like and order some of that, I'm getting low and procrastinating for some reason!

    Wow what a busy weekend. I missed 3 days of logging .. Ha! I'll have to catch up on those later, but a quick recap.

    Short, but intense leg workout Friday before running off to soccer game #1 - it was dang chilly out there. The boys (Predators) did a really good job, and lost 3-1 against an undefeated team.

    Sat - Day Off!! Yay! Didn't do a whole lot today either, rested since there were 2 games throughout the day. They won both pushing them closer to the #1 team (didn't have standings @ this point). Game 2 was awesome, they played harder than ever. Another win, putting them in 2nd place.

    Sun - Up early for gym - Shoulders! Great workout, got some cardio in. Was pretty tired, but had lots to do. Made cupcakes for the boys - either way they made it and they played great. In comes the rain! Thankfully it had stopped by the time their first game started, but it was muddy and cold! They kicked major butt and beat another rival team that they had lost to the first time around. Couldn't believe how well they were playing. Last game ... they played the #1 team again! WOuld have been a shut-out but the black team got a penalty kick w/about 2 mins left. The Predators won that game 3-1 finally kicking the black teams butts and earning 1st. Of course now that means we go to Area, but hey we never thought these boys would even make it into the finals!

    That has nothing to do with my training, but it was a busy weekend. And we are really proud of all the boys. And it explains why I am sooooo tired this AM .. on top of having to come in an hour early ... LOL! What a day.

    Great workout. Love doing arm days, they are definitely fun! Pushed myself with some of these new lifts. Two more weeks of heavy lifting then more HIIT, fun!

    Day 44 - Mon 11/28 - Legs

    Narrow Stance Squats 2x15 & 2 to fail - 35lbs & 10x55

    Standing Calf Raise 3x20 - last to fail - 140lbs
    Leg Extensions 3x10 - last to fail - 10x60 (2) & 15x65

    Leg days are always fun and a lot of work. I know I worked hard. It was a little rough walking out of the gym and driving home, but it always feels good. Pushing myself harder each time.

    Need to work on getting more sleep I know that will help a lot too. This week just might not be the best week for that, since I took a little overtime. Hey it's the Holidays everyone can use a little extra $$, I'll do the best I can though. Need at least 6 hrs a night, will push for more if I can!

    Day 45 - Tues 11/29 - Chest

    Bench Press (Med Grip) 1x8 - 45lb
    Reverse Tri Bench Press 4x8 - 45lb
    Dumbbell Flyes (superset) 4x8 - 15lb & 17.5lb(3)
    Dummbell Bench Press (superset) 4x8 - 15lb & 17.5lb(3)
    Incline Bench Press (superset) 4x8 - 65lb
    Bench Dips Machine (superset) 4x8 - 100 & 115 (3)

    Great workout, was definitely tired after this. Should have done cardio/abs too, but had to leave early to deliver dinner to a friend @ school and check on the kid. Still got a good workout though and I can make up anything missed later this week.

    Tonight is arms! I'm noticing some good development there as well and that's exciting. Can't wait to see what I can do tonight. Oh and on a side note, my legs never got super sore - so glad about that.

    I am making great progress with the weights and I know that I'm losing inches slowly. Just wish the "weight loss" looked a little better. Although, I'm not used to more weight intensive programs, usually they just tell you to run your a$$ off ... literally! This is working far better for me motivation and self esteem wise so I'm sticking with it. Just thought it was strange. Maybe the slower loss is better in the long run though.

    Day 46 & 47 - Thurs 12/1 - Shoulders/Legs

    Arnold Dumbbell Press 4x8 - 17.5 lbs
    Seated Rear Delt Raise 4x8 - last to fail - 7.5lbs (3) & 11x7.5lbs
    Standing Palm-In One Arm DB Raise 4x8 - 15lbs
    Front Dumbbell Raise (superset) 4x8 - 8x15lbs(2) & 8x12(2)
    Standing Dumbbell Upright Row (superset) 4x8 - 15lbs
    Side Lateral Raise 4x8 - last dropset - 7.5lbs

    Leg Extensions 2 warm-up light weight - 30x30
    Wide Stance Barbell Squat 6x8 - 55lb (1) & 60 (3)
    Seated Leg Curl 4x8 - last to fail - 60 (1), 65(2), 15x65
    Glute Press (Machine) 4x8 - 30, 45, 55, 65 (didn't realize my glutes had gotten that strong)
    Leg Press Calf Raise 3x20 - 110, 115(2)
    Standing Calf Raise 3x20 - 140lbs

    Decided to double up since I missed Wed nights workout. These workouts always seem to be so much fun I don't know why. I feel like I accomplished a lot. My legs are getting much stronger! The first time I did the single-leg glute press I swear I only did 15lbs on each leg and I was dying. Last night it was almost like it wasn't heavy enough! We'll see what happens next week. Definitely felt the shoulder burn though, and they are getting much stronger. I need to focus on my rear-delts and lat raises though. I can't seem to make much progress with those. I think I like the double workouts a little too much LOL! But that's life you have to make adjustments.

    Eating was tough yesterday, getting to 2000 cals was harder than it seems. I finally made it just before bed w/ an extra shake, but still! And I probably should have eaten a bit more since I did a double workout. Back to 1700 today, that's still hard, but a little easier to get to.

    Had to get up EARLY this am and was not happy with the fact that I slept like CRAP! Tossed and turned all night, no clue why. I didn't want to take anything either for fear I would sleep through my alarm. Oh well, good thing it's Friday and I can get some good sleep tonight. More OT next week, LOL!

    As a side note: I swear I saw a kid that couldn't be older than like 10 with his dad using one of the machines at the gym. I'm all for kids being in good shape, but the gym that young? I dunno maybe it's just me. Do they really need to be doing shoulder presses?

    Side Note 2: I think I may finally have to find a new dr. Long story short I was switching out PC's in our training room @ work, i picked up one and went to pick up the other with the other arm (which I do all the time - probably about 15/20 lbs they are OOOOLD!) and it went off balance and landed on my ankle basically. I didn't think much of it, sure it hurt a little, but it wasn't bad. Later that night it swelled up a little, but I figured it would. Got a nice bruise and it was tender, but it didn't bother me I could walk fine blah blah. Now about 2.5-3 weeks later, the bruise is still there (thought it was healing but it came back) and the spot it hit is still tender. GF thinks I may have fractured that spot or possibly broken it. But I'm kinda stubborn and I hate finding new Dr's (just switched insurance). But it's starting to worry me a little. No pain when walking, just on contact. Eh!

    Pretty good workout, I was exhausted. Came into work 2 hrs early, and just didn't have the energy. But I made it through most everything and still pulled some good numbers.

    Sat - Day Off
    We went down to Costa Mesa/Newport beach to do some much needed shopping. Despite the kid being a total butthead all day, it was fun. Got to see gf's best friend who we haven't seen in about 6 months. Had some great sushi. Even did well on the eating

    Always love the gym on Sundays! It was super empty this time. Got in a great workout, was ready to get to it. Apparently had plenty of energy because I never slowed down. All-in-all a good day!

    Leg Extensions 3x10 - last to fail - 75, 90, 105

    Love leg days too. My legs were feeling it big time after today's workout. I pushed myself harder than usual. Wanted to make sure I got that "jelly" leg feeling before I left the gym. Surprised myself at how much more I could do, without realizing it. Guess I need to start pushing everything! Definitely seeing great results!

    Day 53 & Day 54 - Thurs 12/8 - Shoulders/Legs
    Since I missed Wed's workout I decided to make up for it tonight instead. I love doing double workouts (happens about once a week).

    Arnold Dumbbell Press 4x8 - 17.5lbs
    Seated Rear Delt Raise 4x8 - last to fail - 12.5lbs
    Standing Palm-In One Arm DB Raise 4x8 - 17.5lbs
    Front Dumbbell Raise (superset) 4x8 - 12.5lbs
    Standing Dumbbell Upright Row (superset) 4x8 - 17.5lbs
    Side Lateral Raise 4x8 - last dropset - 12.5

    Leg Extensions 2 warm-up light weight - 30x35
    Wide Stance Barbell Squat 6x8 - 30, 50(3), 60(2)
    Seated Leg Curl 4x8 - last to fail - 35lbs
    One Leg Leg-Press Squat 4x8 - 50lbs
    Leg Press Calf Raise 3x20 - 130lbs
    Standing Calf Raise 3x20 - 140(2), 160

    Had a great workout. Pushed myself in all aspects. Seeing the weights go up slowly but surely. Any weight increase is a great thing in my book. Looks like I'm going to have to brave the rack soon and 60lbs was hard to get up and over, let alone back off my shoulders. I would have tried it, but there were a bunch of people actually "squatting" in there, I know shocker! I say "squatting" because the form was so poor it made my back hurt. One of the kids looked like he was just bending at the waist. Plus I know I could have done at least 5 more lbs, maybe 10. Everything else went as planned. Had a great double workout. Tonights will be the last of Phase 2 - Phase 3 starts Monday HIIT and active rests! Should be interesting!

    Doing it this afternoon after work. I"ll have to let you know, it's sounding a little intimidating right now. I just want to go lift some weights LOL! Oh and push-ups start tonight too!

    Update From Weekend.
    Day 55, 56 & 57 - Friday 12/9-Sun 12/11 - OFF

    Friday - Unscheduled day off, decided to spend some time with the family, the weeks get so busy sometimes that we don't see each other much. So I figured I could manage an extra night off. GF got a new tattoo and we spent the evening fairly relaxed. Getting out of the house for a little bit was nice.

    Sat - Scheduled day off. Up at 4:30a @ the soccer park @ 7am in the 25-30 degree weather to watch 8-9 hrs of U12 soccer. The boys ended up having to play 3 games, which was probably a little too much for them, but they managed 3 wins. You could tell they were all exhausted though. Didn't warm up til around 11-12p, ugh! I did drink my RecoverPro throughout the day to keep hydrated and so I wasn't stuck w/ water the whole time. Went to a family members house cause they were having a little get together. We got home around 5:3.0-6pm, I decided to go and get groceries since I knew we'd be back up and out early-ish on Sunday too. Got all that done. Wasn't too bad. Lots of freezer prep items, makes my life so much easier. Got gf and I Carls Jr. Hey their turkey burgers are good, I skipped the fries. And I hadn't eaten much all day anyway! Brat was asleep by 7pm. Good thing, he was getting on my nerves LOL Both of us passed out by 9-9:30p. Loooooong day!

    Sunday - Unscheduled Off - Since they did so well on Sat, we were back @ the fields for 2 more games on Sunday. Didn't have to be there til 9:30a this time though. Weather was much nicer, sun was actually out. First game played was to determine whether they would be playing for 1st/2nd or 3rd/4th. They lost, they got too cocky! Last game they won, coming in 3rd. Great season for their team. Got home around 4p, starting my cooking. Everyone got their rooms pretty cleaned up. Managed to make double batch of turkey muffins, apple cinnamon protein bars and chocolate protein bars. Plus some turkey burger sliders for dinner. Laundry put away, room cleaned. Then I had to run to Target cause I was out of cat liter and didn't realize it .. damn fuzzy animals! I think we were asleep by 10:30p.

    Such a loooooong weekend. Didn't get a work out in other than walking around a few times on Sat/Sun. But really I didn't have any time. Sure I could have squeezed some in but it would have been half-assed and I probably would have felt worse. So I get to get back to it today. I'm looking forward to it. I think it'll raise my spirits a little. I need a vacation!

    So more iron and push-ups tonight.

    Day 57 - Mon 12/12 - Quads/Calves

    Leg Press (superset) 3x15 - 110, 130(2)
    Speed Squat (superset) 3x15 - 40lbs
    One Leg Squat 3x15 (per side) - 15 (left), 10 (right - pulled something) only one set
    Leg Extensions (superset) 3x20 - 75lbs
    Lateral Bound (superset) 3x20 - 20
    Wide Stance Leg Press 3x30 - 75lbs
    Standing Calf Raise (superset) 3x20 - 140(2), 160
    Lateral Bound (superset) 3x20 - 20

    Not my best workout/night. My day was all jumbled to start with, apparently I need to pay more attention to my calendar LOL. Was exhausted by the end of the day, but managed to get to the gym anyway. Looking forward to a great leg workout. Started out really strong, everything was going well. Move into my single legs and bam right glute is on FIRE, not cool. So I stretched out a little, and moved on to see what would happen. Took out all the lunges, anything that would irritate it. Everything seemed fine. Got to my calf raises so far so good. Laterals going well. Last set of calf raises into my laterals and ankle pain on the left foot. I threw in the towel there. You know it's not easy walking when both legs hurt, LOL. My quads felt great though. Pushed them pretty hard. But I think I'm laying off legs for a while, every week something happens, I need to let my legs rest and probably see a dr about my ankle (like i should have 3-4 weeks ago). Hehe! No but really it didn't hurt at all for 2 weeks.

    Looking forward to killing my back/arms today! They need it! And the push-up challenge, need to get on the ball go some numbers to reach!

    Quick Rant (I'll update workouts later):

    So a co-worker just came into my office all butt hurt. Why? She missed a 5 maybe 10 min meeting and nobody came to get her. Now I realize that people are busy and most of the ones here are oblivious to life. But come on.

    1 - the meeting was 10 mins max and when asked if we should get her the boss said nah we're almost done.
    2 - I sent out an OUTLOOK reminder last week that you accepted, not my fault you snoozed it.
    3 - You're an adult, I told you yesterday we had a meeting today - check your freakin calendar.

    So she walked out all in a tizzy! I was nice about it, but really. It's been on the calendar for over a week. Don't you think maybe YOU should check it. Only person I babysit here is my boss. And that's only because he runs the call center. I'm not your secretary or admin. I don't have to remind you of things like your mom would. And if you miss a meeting oh well, not the end of the world. Ugh people get on my nerves!!

    Don't get me wrong I help people out all the time, but certain things I'm not going out of my way to do. And she has a little complex that she's in a far better position than she thinks she is. When really she got put there because my boss didn't want to make her a supervisor .. LOL She's a nice lady, and works hard, but she's no different than anyone else here. Tech she doesn't need to be there, she's not a member of the mgmt team anymore. But she comes anyway. Anyway!

    Sorry just needed to get that out. People at work have been really getting on my nerves lately. I feel like I'm running a pre-school!!

    /end rant

    ready to kill it @ gym tonight!

    We're all women and like 3-4 men now. The boss man handles the hot flashes and pmsing pretty well, but he does have 4 girls and a wife at home so he's used to it.

    Today it was cranking the heat up so it was like a tropical desert in my office. Whoever thought it would be a good idea to put a thermostat in ONE of the offices is a moron! Just sayin! ESp since that one person is always colder than all get out.

    I did hit it pretty hard last night, feelin it today phew!

    LOL I would be the person heating up the office, i'm sure. I work from home now but when I had an office I had a space heater year round! LOL.

    Great workouts, doubling up is a lot! Are you following a specific program? I am hunting for one but scared I think-lol! It's not like I have to do it forever. Just hate thinking if it isn't good for me i'll waste time...

    I would be fine if she wanted a space heater. My boss and I die in our offices sometimes. I've learned to dress in layers!

    I'm doing Jamie Eason's LiveFit right now - 12 weeks. I'm heading into week 10 so I'm almost done. Then I have no idea what I'm going to do. I might try New Rules, but I'm not sure yet. Double workouts are my favorites sometimes. When I'm in the right mood!

    Great workout. Had to decrease weight on a few to get all reps in but not much. Still felt great burn. Both arms and back were toast when I was done Always a great feeling! Side note: adding in active rest sure does make the workouts harder and longer! Plus I started the 100 pushup challenge w/ some other bb.comers. Ouch!

    Should be killing legs tonight. So I'm going to attempt it, I know what I can take out if I have to. A little workout is better than no workout
