I've been browsing these forums for a while now (my boyfriend enjoys powerlifting and olympic lifting a lot) and finally decided that I would like to keep a journal to keep track of my progress and to stay motivated. I am 22, 5'10", and about 215 lbs atm. I've been working out at the YMCA for about 2 months and now go 6 days a week. Since I work out with my boyfriend, I do a lot of free weight excercises and I do cardio 4 days a week. I'm not really sure what kind of weight I've lost since beginning to work out (I don't like scales!) but I have lost 5 inches on my waist since last time I measured. I am also feeling a lot better about myself and feeling leaner. My goals are basically to lose body fat %, gain strength, and muscle tone.
Here are my current lifts:
Bench - 115 lbs
Incline - 95 lbs
Deadlift - 145 lbs
Power Clean - 75 lbs
Squats - Bodyweight x 15 (I just started doing these today and need to work on my balance and form!)
I am eating about 5-6 healthy meals a day, for a total of about 2000-2200 calories.
