Starting at the top is my first time at the gym for a little while. Was doing well (with a partner) then a situation did not allow me to go to the gym.

This is my first attempt at making a workout regimen for myself. I understand it's a lot. I typically leave the gym with lower self esteem than when I go in, and that's okay with me. I am typically very sore for several days afterward, which I enjoy. Makes me feel like I'm actually doing something.

Input would be fantastic!

What are your actual goal(s)

I've been talking to a friend of mine (A bodybuilder, she got her "Pro Card" this summer) about doing figure competitions. She told me that she suggested it this summer and "I do believe you laughed at me".

I understand it's going to take a lot of time, but any guidance would be spectacular!

Ultimately, even if the figure thing ends up not working out, I just want to be healthy.

Oh... and maybe go to the gym and not get "Aww, look there's a girl here. Cuuute." looks anymore... Like it's somewhere I don't belong... Or when I tell my family I've been lifting, they'll stop laughing about it.

:)

Thanks for the response!

(Right now I'm 5'9" 135)

Thanks so much!

Today:
Yoga (for the first time ever) class 1 hr
---
Full situp on ball 50, 50, 50
---
All together:
Reverse crunch: 30 seconds
Rt oblique (laying on side): 30s
Lt ": 30s
Rt oblique (knee to elbow): 60s
Lt ": 60s
Bicycle crunch: 30s
---
Plank on elbows: 60s, 60s
---
Crunch set again, in reverse
---
Elliptical 45min

Today was my "do what you hate" day. I am not a fan of abs or cardio and I am horrible about stretching. Though I do have a hard roller at home that I use once it doesn't hurt to touch (usually quads) muscles. But this is very irregular. Classes are free with my gym membership, so I figured I'd give yoga a go. It wasn't as bad as I thought. However I was probably the only one under 60...

Considering posting pictures so I can mark where I'm at /progress.

Nice work!

Keep after it. I trained abs yesterday. Heading to the gym shortly for some back and shoulders.

Have a great one!
