Thanks :D I start grad classes Jan 27. I'll be taking 3 this semester. I'm working towards my MA in Applied Sociology w/ a certificate in non-profit. My interests are with sexuality, sexual rights, human rights violations (in general, but primarily sex crimes such as human trafficking). I am really interested in gender construct (comparing cross-culturally), human trafficking, & sexual education (in the U.S, in other countries, but also the funding the U.S gives to other countries for the purpose of sexual education).

That sounds like really interesting research! I'm a fan of the applied research, I am in Applied Social Psychology myself. Good luck with your program. :)

thanks :D I'm just trying to keep my motivation for school up (or to regain it really, which i think will happen once classes start and we're discussing things that peak my interests).



the workout-
mon- I was originally going to do legs but when I got to the gym I just couldn't bring myself to do it, so I did 30 mins cardio (15min/15min elliptical/stairmaster and abs

tues- I plan on doing legs today and cardio

both days I had physical therapy (3 times a week!!! ouch!) - really wish I could find something to help the pain that isn't taking meds. any ideas?
the pain is starting to affect my sleep, which isn't helping my muscle gains any! it's a viscous cycle :lol: I can only laugh so that I don't cry.

Been thinking about competing more and more. shooting for April but I will have to see how things pan out. I really want to get some coaching on posing and such. before I jump in

Look on bodybuilding.com for poses. I know it helped me some before going to my "posing coach" last year. I know they have free videos for men and im quite sure for women too.

I know how ya feel when you go to gym and feel like doing something but then do cardio instead(think low carb...cardio always the easier choice!!!)

Im doing two-a-days now and its the only thing thats getting me bigger(besides extra protein).

Keep it up and keep April in your mind EVERYDAY

Training has been going well, I am just now starting to not be sore from last weeks last work out :lol: .
Physical therapy has been going well, knock on wood, I am feeling better than I have in 2 years! its about damn time!!! I will say though, physical therapy, not so fun, in fact it can be really really freaking painful!!
didn't hit the gym as much as I wanted last week since I have been pushing to get stuff done around the house before classes start next week. but building furniture, installing new door knobs and sets and painting like a mad woman is kinda like a work out? :lol:

on another note an omron fat loss monitor stated last Wednesday that my bf% is 16%

I did cardio and abs yesterday. I was doing 5 minutes of intense cardio (jump roping, ect.) and a set of abs. of course on my 2cnd set I twisted my bad ankle. It doesn't seem too bad, but of course today was supposed to be a leg day :( my body hates me!!! I figure I'll give it a few days and see how it is before I decide to do something. I may or may not do cardio tomorrow I 'll have to see. At least i'm already in Physical Therapy for thoracic outlet, lets just add this to the list :lol:

Well, I feel lazy!! I took 2 days off after the ankle thing, it's feeling better by the way- a little sore but I think I'd be fine in the gym as long as I don't go all out, not step ups that's for sure! :lol: anyhow, of course it snowed like crazy and I can't get out of my neighborhood. I'm going to try and do something at home though, I have 30 lb weights and a bosu ball, maybe it'll be a high rep kinda day. At least with all the snow, I've been getting cardio in with shoveling. I spent all sunday 9-4pm shoveling my entire street with my neighbors (too bad all of the other streets still have 5 or so inches and they're calling for another 10-20 in)

I've been bad with the diet, today though, back on track! :D

it's been awhile since I've posted anything, I've done nothing but homework and the gym this weekend. Grad school is kicking my butt!!!
anyhow, since the snow has cleared and I am able to leave the house I've been good about going to the gym and have bee sticking to my cutting diet, may have a few cheat days once the in-laws are in town, but I will try to stick to it!
Last week
monday- cardio only
tuesday- legs
wed.- first time I was able to do arms since last year sometime. my therapist gave me permission to do light weigh high rep stuff as long as it's nothing over head or chest fly type movements. my arms have lost some strength, but it was nice to be back at it somewhat. I will say my arms were killing me the next 2 days.
thursday- homework
friday- homework
sat- legs and cardio

sunday-homework
monday- abs and I did intervals on a bike. I've been watching Ava Cowan's video installments and they are super motivating! I watched episode 5 before my workout today, hence the bike. felt AWESOME!!! just what I needed :D
check them out here:
