So, December is/will be my very first month on the gym. I have a training program from my personal trainer and dietitian. I will try to workout two-tree times a week. Except weight training I practice ashtanga yoga tree to four times a week and walk from time to time :wink: . My first goal isn't very specific, I just should get bigger, stronger and more muscular. Now hard facts:
Height: 5'3"
Lowest weight: 77lb :oops: (I know that sounds terrifying, but I've always been quite small)
Highest weight: 104lb
Goal weight: healthy

My first training program:
1. 5-10 min warm-up (running, cycling)
2. squats 12x5kg 10x7kg 10x9kg 10x10kg
3. pulldown (bar) 10x10kg 10x15kg 10x20kg 10x20kg
4. dumbbell press 12x4kg 12x5kg 12x6kg 12x6kg
5. shoulder press (standing) 12x2kg 12x3kg 12x4kg 12x4kg
6. crunch (legs elevated) 16x2kg 16x2kg 16x2kg
7. hyperextension 14 14 14
8. short stretching

I don't have any special purpose of this journal yet. If I see any changes, problems or feelings about my workouts, diet or outlook, I'll make a note here.

huge range from lowest weight to heaviest weight, where are you at currently? No judgements here, everyone's bodies are different.

Now about 83lb, gained almost 3,5lb after last two weeks of new diet and workouts :). I want to bulk up and reach 88lb until after New Year or so.

Yesterday I did one set of 44 lb barbell squats - may sound not impressive for you, but as a beginner I feel a bit proud of myself ;).

Nice, sounds like a challenging but attainable goal.
