After procrastinating for a couple of months, reading endless blogs and websites and getting info overload I decided to just go for it and if I'm doing it worng I can tweak it later.

Dumbell Arm Curl 3kg weights - 12 reps x3 - OK - weight comfortable
Dumbell Overhead Press 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - almost to failure - do not up weight
Dumbell Bent Over Row 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - comfortable
Dumbell Chest Press 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - comfortable
Dumbell Lunge 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - comfortable but wobbly balance
Dumbbell Shoulder Squat 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - aim to squat lower
Dumbbell Triceps Extension 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - hard but comfortable
Dumbbell Front Raise 2kg weights -12 reps x3 - hard but comfortable
Dumbell Squat 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - Squat lower
Dumbell Concentration Curl - 12 reps x3 - correct weight

Still working out Macros but need to up protein

next work out Friday

Welcome! You can read information until you're blue in the face. Actually getting started is a lot harder, but it will get you way better results. Keep it up!

Cheers Ben,
Too much information just doesn't help does it?

Anyway -
Was quite sore Thursday and very very sore Friday so Saturday morning I went out for a nice long walk, then repeated Wednesday's routine.

Realised that the area I'm not sore is my Abs and chest so going to look into some Ab exercise to alternate days.

Saturday 14th Jan
Dumbell Arm Curl 3kg weights - 12 reps x3 - OK - Comfortable but weight correct
Dumbell Overhead Press 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - again almost to failure - had to take short breaks in sets
Dumbell Bent Over Row 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - comfortable - need to check form
Dumbell Chest Press 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - comfortable
Dumbell Lunge 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - comfortable - balance improving
Dumbbell Shoulder Squat 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - much easier
Dumbbell Triceps Extension 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - hard - had to take short breaks in sets
Dumbbell Front Raise 2kg weights -12 reps x3 - hard but comfortable
Dumbell Squat 3kg weights -12 reps x3 - easier
Dumbell Concentration Curl - 12 reps x3 - correct weight - almost to failure

Food is still an issue. Have worked out macros but not how to actually eat to meet these requirements without going way over on Carbs.
Need to loose fat so thinking that Weight Watchers plan (which Im familiar with), and a concious emphasis on increasing protein might be the best way to go for the minute.

Anyway, next workout Monday

Welcome! Hope all is going well! I totally relate to what you said about figuring out the macros. I've been in the same boat and keep overeating carbs and fat in order to increase the protein. Grrr. Anyway, I'm just going to relax about it a bit and not stress too much over it, hoping I'll figure it out with time. :)

Good luck with everything!

All the best,
Karen
