Since July, i have managed to put on about 10 pounds give or take. its not the end of the world, but it is very frustrating because i was THISCLOSE to my goals (although it is kinda nice to have boobs again HAHAHAHA!)...so NOW i have to drop back down to where i was and tear it up until i'm there agina and then i'll start bulking up. hopefully that will be around the time Giacomo's competetionis over and we can kind of do it together.
I had been doing high raw up until this week. It was fun and delicious, but for some reason it wasn't working well for me at this moment in time. I'm sure i'll try it again at some point down the road, it would be easier to try living with a raw foodist i bet, but you should see Giacomo and I when we're together around food.....its amazing how we can eat-especially together....its hilarious. a show in and of itself, i swear.
so basically I'm back to a similar diet plan to the one that Melissa has had me on and although it's less fun, i'm not gonna deny that it works. not for one second. its a miracle worker if i have the will power, which i'm hoping that i do.
trying something different lately as far as my workouts go. so far i am LOVING IT! I can feel myself getting stronger. i've been working one body part per week.
I've been trying to get more cardio in because i have slacked on it lately. The weather here is beautiful so i'm trying to take as much of it in as possible before i got to grey grey portland.
I am tired of low intesity cardio, so i am trying to do higher intensity cardio in addition to it. I have no endurance whatsoever and i HATE IT, so i am trying to change that. I ran (don't laugh at me) 2 miles today! I can run for longer than that on a treadmill, but i dont think i've ever done it on the ground before, so i was really happy about it. THEN I went to the gym to do chest.
Flat BB Press
70x6 (why could i do six again with 70 and only 3.5 with 75
Incline DB Press
22.5x10 (guess next week i'll go much heavier here if i'm finishing higher than i started)
My gym only has one decline bench and there was this guy who was showing no sign of being done anytime soon, so i was trying to find a way to replicate it. there was a michine which felt like crap, then i tried pushups-that was not happening....THEN i went to the decling bench that people usually do abs on and carried a 45 lb pound baody bar to it and climbed on it then tried to hoist it up on top of me....it was funny and everyone lokoed at me like i was crazy. but i did it anyway
hmmmm....any other huge achievements....????I can curl 20 lb DBs and i feel like i"m literally thisclose to being able to do a few pullups on my own.....hopefully if i drop this pesky 10 pounds.....
the beginning is always today.
