    Post Botika's Lifting Log

    '

    Welcome!

    Welcome to my lifting log. I started consistently lifting in June 2012 and the bb.com community has given me a lot of help and support along the way. My log gave me motivation to be consistent so I'm picking it up again and would like to make 2016 my fittest year yet. I may post a little or a lot. Either way, I look forward to getting to know some of you better while I continue my journey.

    Background Cliffs

    - B.C. (before children) I maintained my weight fairly easily between 50-54 kgs.
    - Grew and nourished two human beings.
    - Weight went up, weight went down, weight went up, weight went down, weight went up and stayed around 58-59 kgs (Skinnyfat 1, Botika 0).
    - Got stuck in a haphazard cardio rut. What was I thinking???
    - Decided to go back to the only thing that worked for me in the past, lifting first thing in the morning.
    - Committed to training 4-5 days a week because I wanted my results to keep me motivated!


    Training

    For the first 3 months I followed a variation of this workout:
    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/fitn...l_training.htm

    Since October I have been following a variation of this workout:
    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=120309781


    Currently my split looks like this:

    Monday - Back
    Deadlifts
    Chin-Ups
    One Arm Dumbell Row
    Close Grip Pulldown
    Seated V-Bar Row
    Underhand Barbell Row

    Tuesday - Chest
    Incline Bench Press
    Flat Bench Press
    Dumbell Flys
    Hammer Strength Incline Press
    Cable Crossovers
    Push-Ups

    Wednesday
    Cardio (When I actually get out of bed)

    Thursday - Legs
    Squats
    Split Squats
    Stiff Leg Deadlift
    Leg Curl
    Leg Press
    Calf Raises

    Friday - Arms & Shoulders
    Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press
    Dips
    Barbell Curls
    Overhead Barbell Extension (sometimes I do skullcrushers)
    Lateral Raises
    Front Raises
    Preacher Curls
    Hammer Curls
    Tricep Pushdowns


    Progress

    1 July 2012

    Weight: 59kg
    Bodyfat: 26.2% (approx measurement with scales)
    Bust: 92cm
    Underbust: 79cm
    Waist: 78cm
    Hips: 92cm
    Thigh L: 56cm
    Thigh R: 57cm


    Current

    Weight: 53.4kg [5.6kg Loss]
    Bodyfat: 23% [3.2% Loss]
    Bust: 90cm [2cm Loss]
    Underbust: 73cm [6cm Loss]
    Waist: 68cm [10cm Loss]
    Hips: 85cm [7cm Loss]
    Thigh L: 51cm [5cm Loss]
    Thigh R: 51.5cm [5.5cm Loss]


    Goals

    I would definitely like to build some more muscle and lean out.
    I'm most happy with how my back and arms are shaping up.
    I carry most bodyfat on my abs and thighs so would like to improve these areas.




    Righto... back day tomorrow. I think I'm going to work on my goal of doing an unassisted chin-up. I usually do these after deadlifts but think I'll swap it around and see how I go. My arms are pretty sore today though. Triceps are really sore from Friday and I trained shoulders on Friday and Saturday this week. Need to crank up the tunes to keep me focused...



    My weight has been fairly stable for the last month and a half because I've been indulging in food and booze (I've had quite a few social things on). I'm going to tighten up my diet again because I would like to reduce my bodyfat a bit more before starting a lean bulk in a few months at the end of summer.

    Thanks for the well wishes!! I think I just need to focus again so hopefully this will help. I've been thinking about starting a journal for a while now so I suppose this is the push that I needed.

    I started one as well then stopped. Now i started carrying my book around and logging my workouts again. Seems to help me keep track better and to show progress. In my comment in the random section i mentioned short term goals and long term goals. I think this will also help with motivation, dedication, and self confidence through your progress.

    I usually try and convert in my other posts but since this is my journal I though I would stick to kgs. It means more to me than pounds. Pounds are a bit abstract!!

    Thank you!! I don't have much free time that's for sure. I've got to the point though where I'm actually enjoying the exercise and when I don't go I feel like rubbish!

    Nutrition

    1729 calories yesterday. 160g protein / 85g fat / 70g carbs (not sure why it doesn't add up, that's what myfitnesspal tells me)

    Our house guests left a bottle of white wine in the fridge last night. I was so temped to have a glass but then I usually end up having two glasses and would have blown my calories way out. I'm happy today that I didn't!


    Training

    Well I'm a little bit excited that I managed to do one unassisted chin-up! Woo hoo! My form wasn't very good but I managed it so that's a start. At least I know I can do it now so I'm not so worried about trying again next week.

    5:32:58 AM 0 x 1 Unassisted

    You know what.. I got someone at my new gym doing 10 themselves after 4 weeks

    I would help him on the positive, then get him to hold at the top as hard as he can with his lats.. the negative slowly pulled him back down. 5 times, each time he cried like a baby but now he is doing 10 on his own.

    I feel so proud

    I definitely feel like I'm on the cusp of being able to do them. I bumped up my weight for lat pulldown and seated row this week so hopefully that helps me next week.

    I think I need to try them on the power rack so I have more room. I'm going to need a bench to reach the bars anyway so I may try jumping chins, they are supposed to help similar to what you described!

    Yeah it's similar

    tbo, going heavier with lat pulldowns and seated rows did not help me at all in widegrip pullups :|

    Nutrition

    1564 calories yesterday. 118g protein / 54g fat / 116g carbs

    I had steak with carrots, asparagus and brocollini for dinner last night and ended up with a stomach ache. It's happened before so I'm guessing brocollini doesn't agree with me. I don't think I'll be eating that again.


    Training

    Well may back is feeling sore after yesterday's workout which is good. I got some decent nights sleep over the weekend and it makes such a difference to my training. I can definitely lift heavier when I'm well rested. Easier said than done at the moment with a wakeful toddler. He's getting better at sleeping through though so fingers crossed that continues.

    Just completed this weeks chest workout and I feel like it was a good one. I thought I would give "proper" pushups a go for a change, usually I do them on my knees. Happy to report I managed to do 4 after my chest workout - woot! Last time I tried a few months ago I could only do one and that was before training. I'm getting stronger!

    I'm going to swap my days around this week and see how I go. Legs Wed, Arms Thur and HIIT Fri. I struggle with HIIT after legs and seem to do better the other way around. That means squats tomorrow... must focus on getting that shapely butt, not how inflexible I am.

    Food regret is the theme of the day. Decided to have two glasses of wine last night after dinner. The wine wasn't even that good, certainly not worth the calories I consumed. If only you could take it back....


    Training

    Sometimes I think to myself "why didn't I start earlier?" in regard to my fitness, last night is a perfect example of why. I go to bed, 2 hours later I'm woken by kids. I get up, settle my son and try to get more sleep. An couple hours later I'm woken again, my hubs gets up this time.

    Given I'm now supposed to be up in an hour or two I decide the workout is a write off and grabbed some extra zzzzzzz. I pretty much feel like rubbish now. Looks like I'll be doing legs tomorrow an arms on Friday. Back, chest and abs are sore!

    Crap crap crap. Missed gym this morning because I slept in. I've had this conversation with my husband a hundred times "have you set the alarm for tomorrow?" The response that I always get is "it's always set." So yesterday I decided not to ask and guess what... That's the one day it wasn't set. Guess I'll be doing legs and arms tomorrow.

    Stop trying to escape your disasters, I want to see you believing in what
    you are. Stop trying to explain yourself cause lifeís too short to be the
    dust on the top shelf.

    Stop running away from who you are cause time is lost so quickly. Take
    your mistakes for what they are Ė itís just part of being human and
    learning to fall.

    Don't worry about sleeping in . . . it happens. You can make up that session pretty easily. I hate that too, though. I'm a "5am'er" and when I miss for some reason I kick myself all day.

    1666 calories yesterday. 108g protein / 67g fat / 121g carbs

    I've noticed differences in my body already since counting calories again. I've friended a few of the fem section ladies on myfitnesspal so hopefully that helps keep me on track. That said, I'm not tracking today. I'm off to my work Xmas party so plan to have a few drinkies. I've ordered a streak for lunch so I'll try and keep my meals relatively healthy.


    Training

    Managed to get the rest of my split completed today. I feel like I'm starting to get better at squats. They weren't quite as tedious today. I might try and get a cardio session in over the weekend. I've got a busy day tomorrow but maybe on Sunday.

    Yeah I use Gym Buddy on my iPhone. It keeps a log and I just email it to myself and then copy it here. It costs a few bucks but it's really handy. You can create different workouts etc.

    Forgot to mention that I moved up to the "boy" dumbbells for shoulder press today. I had a mental block about moving up in weight but was pleasantly surprised to get 6 reps out!

    1691 calories yesterday. 138g protein / 71g fat / 104g carbs


    My favourite meal of the day at the moment is breakfast....

    50g Oats (soaked in boiling water overnight)
    Cinnamon
    Stevia Drops
    1 Egg
    1/2 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
    100g Strawberries

    Plus a skim latte (1 sugar).

    Oats etc is about 324 calories plus 97 calories for the coffee.




    Training

    No training over the weekend, it's recovery time for me. Hammies and glutes are oh so sore after my workout this week. Even though I whinge about my weights being light obviously it's doing something. I ordered a foam roller on eBay a while ago and it got lost in the post so I went and bought one from a sports store yesterday. OMG... hurts so good. It really helped release some of the tension in my muscles. Highly recommend after leg day!

    EDITED because I am IT challenged!

    I have some pics on my bodyspace.

    I said no to alcohol and dessert out at dinner tonight. Where's my halo....


    Training

    Nothing like an argument to prompt a good workout. Why do people feel that it's ok to point out flaws in others physiques? It wasn't even directed at me but I defended another person and apparently now I'm the one that is "too sensitive". It would be nice if people would just be more supportive and accepting, rather than trying to impose their idea of an ideal physique on others. I'm probably the happiest I've been in a long time and I would be nice to share that with others, rather than having to defend my choices.

    I decided that needed to burn off some energy so I did my back workout Sunday instead of Monday (the other choice was alcohol but that would have taken me over my calories). I felt strong tonight and smashed out a PB for deadlifts... 70kg (154 pounds) x 4. There was already a bar set up when I got there and I actually added some weight for my deadlifts - feelsgoodman.

    I'm wondering whether I actually had more energy because I'd eaten a few hours before. Usually I train fasted in the morning and eat breakfast as soon as I get home. I may need to experiment again and see whether food helps my lifts.

    1665 calories today. 150g protein / 59g fat / 110g carbs

    I was so hungry yesterday, even dinner didn't really quench my hunger. I had a shake before bed as I usually do and managed to fall asleep even though my body was nagging me for more food. I then got woken up at 1.30am and had to eat so I'm starting today 130 calories down!


    Training

    I have acquired a virus, dammit. It's mainly a sore throat but I'm feeling pretty lack lustre overall. The week before Xmas, how annoying! I went to the gym this morning and did chest anyway. I'm paranoid about falling off the wagon so don't want to miss too many days. It was a good workout despite the fact I was lacking in energy. I already felt sore half way through the workout. I skipped push-ups at the end because I was spent.

    According to my app these are my stats since I started recording my lifts which was about 2 weeks after I started.

    Training

    I have acquired a virus, dammit. It's mainly a sore throat but I'm feeling pretty lack lustre overall. The week before Xmas, how annoying! I went to the gym this morning and did chest anyway. I'm paranoid about falling off the wagon so don't want to miss too many days. It was a good workout despite the fact I was lacking in energy. I already felt sore half way through the workout. I skipped push-ups at the end because I was spent.

    I use Gym Buddy on my iPhone. You set up workouts and then just enter the set when you compete it and it records the time. You can email reports and download the data etc.
