Playing catch up!
Sorry for the lapse in posting--I am ALIVE but busy, here is a wrap up of my last week:
Just wanted to drop in quickly to say "HI"...I am BUSY!! today and into the forseable future, lol.
I am excited to get to the gym today--here is what I think I will do--
about an hour total of cardio
something like this20 min warm up
20 min run of intervals
20 min on the stairmill
and then have a gatoraid and do BACK,Shoulders and Bi's
I am so tempted to do legs a day early today...but I need to get in a good day of cardio today and if I do legs that won't happen...so I'll wait until tomorrow
My son Gunner is going to a wrestling clinic starting tomorrow for 3 days in the AM so that will force me to get going and to the gym much earlier than today--it is 1:30 and I fell like it is 9am
Other things on tap--
School starts on MONDAY so I have to do some shopping...
I hope to have my bodpod bodyfat done tomorrow am
and I am hoping to order some more BuffMother shirts this week--so any final suggestions let me know!
keep up the passion!!
Got my Bod Pod testing done:
I had a wonderful time this morning--I visited my frined at a gym in a neighboring town--which was very impressive--and had my body fat tested in the bod pod--here are the results ( I must point out that they are scewed a bit due to my breast augmentation-the reading is a bit higher than it should be due to the fact that the test "sees" my DD's as fat, lol)
Fat %- 13.9=17.6#'s
Lean %- 86.1= 108.2#'s
Total Weight- 125.8
TEE(total energy expenditure)
1974 low active
2688 very active
All in all it was very interesting and FUN!
I may go back in a month or 6 weeks to see where I am at and maybe do a VO2 max test in the future there also.
My workout got put off again today--so I will check in later with that!
Have a HOT DAY!!
I am cheering myself on today--
ADD and Busy is how I'd describe my life at the moment!
Just to update you on my workouts:
Last night did a cruddy leg workout it was just too late in the day and I was stressed
I did manage to do
I decided to finish up some legs- however was interupted by talking too much!!
huge hammer leg press
and then some shoulders/bi's
Standing military with DB's
Sorry to be so short--I am off to conquor the Wal-mart!!
Hi sweet BUFFMothers!!
Well I almost let myself be lazy and not get the gym during Gunner's wrestling...but I said to myself--JUST DO IT!
So I had another great day of getting to the gym early!!
I really love it there at that time 9:30 ish---it is so quiet and I dont' have to fight for equipment.
So this is how it went:
40 push ups
8 overhand 30#assisted pull ups
Old school situps with a 10# med ball on my head
weighted stick obliques
30 push ups
9 underhand 30#assisted pull ups
Old school situps with a 10# med ball on my head, then some extra concentration crunches on each side
weighted stick obliques
20 push ups+10 sec break then the final 10 for 100total!!
10 underhandhand 30#assisted pull ups
Old school situps
weighted stick obliques
then I had to make a phone call
Then I did my real workout
95x12*stated pairing with tricep bech dips to failure and knee ups
another set of dips
Overhead cable tricep exentsions with rope
30x10 together, 10 separte each armx3 sets
Posedown cable bicep curls
Cable lateral raises
10x10 each arm
15min on elliptical various speeds--not too intense
I am getting very lean and so I have been holding off on doing a ton of cardio--I was going to run today, but my hip and knee were sore--so I will wait until tomorrow and run
Tomorrow's plan is to do Back, Shoulders, Bi's and run intervals--hills would be good!! And then we are going over to the kids cousins house around lunch for the afternoon. We have not seen them in a while and need to get together b4 my kids start school next week.
OH- and Gunner was in the paper yesterday!! For his wrestling--which he is a natural at!! VERY fun to see him in sports finally--I can't wait to see my kids compete
Well I have to go--Good to see everyone here on fire and hitting it hard-- woohoo
I had a relaxing day with my SIL today...she lives only about 15 min away but I don't see her enough. So we spent the afternoon eating and relaxing while the cousins played...it was just what I needed to escape my messy house, lol!!
I went to the gym got there at about 10 and was outta there before 11:15...very nice!
tons of pull ups
plate loaded lat pulls
military behind the neck
Shoulder press machine
intervals on the treddy--fast and with incline!! I like the incline
then 3 sets of abduction machine
The resuts of my last 2 weeks of "buffing" have been super!! I dropped 3 pounds of fat and going from 129 to 126. I love feeling BUFF!!
I am off to relax with DH!!
Have a stellar night and OH BTW--"boosting" is on for this chika!!
Today we got a bit of a late start so I only had an hour to do my first official Boosting workout since about 2.5 weeks ago.
As I went through my workout the same thought kept on coming to mind...are you really lifting as Heavy as you can?? I amazed myself on my knee extensions...I usually think I am working hard...but I guess not!
warm up r-bike 5 min
185x2--this felt very heavy and I was wearing shox shoes...not good for squatting heavy--too smoochy and unstable in the heel
135x10- romainian dl
250x10x2sets--forgot to post I did some of these yesterdy also
I've been working calves a bit almost every day...I want them to pop!
115x2 + 95x3
In other news, I started taking HMB today--so we'll see how that treats me...the dosage recommedations is a ton- 4 pills 3 times a day...I might just gag from taking so many supps! Also diet wise 2-3 more servings of carbs a day will be a welcome treat!! I should be able to post some Heavy weights this week. I am still taking a ton of fish oil 9g/day and 4g of CLA / day--along with my NOXCG3, extra l-glutamine, no2, and xyience fat burner about 3-4 days a week (I did today). I continue to take my normal PMS support pill combo also.
I have some work to do today, so not much relaxing, but at least my Hubby is home to help keep the kids in check.
Have a super Saturday!
