Update finally!!!

Training is going great! As of today abs are hard as a rock.... and I don't foresee any more weight loss etc. I think I have hit target.

Lifting session are dead on and aside from a bit of a back track last session I was lifting more and more each time and am definitely into a groove. Cardio session are easy as always and we've had to add some stuff in for my areas which seem to need to be hit harder to get anything out of them (calves and abs).

The Good: For the first time in my life I am pleased with the results of my training
The Bad: Gotta get all my meals in me and eat ON TIME!
The Ugly: Well we covered that already.

Thanks :)


I dropped Robbie off to the airport shuttle today, so he's on his way back to England.

Yesterday:
30 min cardio interval training

Abs, lower back
Dumb bell Shoulder Press
Lateral Raises
Single Arm Tricep Push Downs
Seated Calf Raises
Standing Calf Raises
stretching

Weights were light, sets were 3 for now.

Glad to be back in the game :)

The Good: Feels good to be back
The Bad: I know it'll take time to build back up to where I was
The Ugly: Housework is a bit out of hand ....neglected. Aside from dishes general picking up and laundry, it all needs doing.

Getting there! :)


Yep comp on the 28th and so far I have not changed my mind.

OK, some updates, I took a hard fall a few days ago and landed on the dumbbell stack. my tail bone took the biggest hit to getting up and down etc is way painful (this happened of course because I needed just one more thing to go wrong). However, I don't think it'll effect doing quarter turns for comp. But I did hold off on leg day since I am still in a lot of pain.

Doing cardio daily now and setting up for the last of the cut. On no weight days I do 30 minutes interval training in the AM and eve. On weight days, I do it in the eve since I take my day out on that treadmill and can "run it out". I need it for my sanity right now.

Super low carbs loading up on the vitamins. water, water, water and yes of course coffee. Haven't dropped the alcohol yet, but am doing rum and diet instead of beer now. At 112 lbs, not worried about weight.

Still not posting weights but will after comp. I'll be changing a few things up anyway.

Today:
Bicep Curls 15-8-8-6-4-30
Cable Pull Overs 50
Close Grip Pull Downs 15-8-8-6
Bent over rows 12-8-8
Rear Delt -(low cable) 30 each side
Low Cable Pulls 30
stretching

My camera battery was exhausted, but I'll post progress pics by tomorrow.

The Good: Training is helping me get my life back
The Bad: Not going into comp at 100%, but what the heck!
The Ugly: This divorce mess is just that ....way too much drama for me.

Couple more days :)

Good luck :)

dont forget that you are not only representing yourself but also your gym. :lol:

We home gymers have to make our mark. :lol:

But seriously, I have so much confidence in you that your first try will be great. :D

Dont forget that you have already made your objective, the minute you walk on that stage, you will have saved some more animals. :D

When they realize that no animals were harmed in the creation of your physique, you will have won a victory that will last a lifetime. :)

Thanks guys! Sorry I haven't had time to post been going double time, re: training schedule. Final cuts and "contest mode" dieting began after Sunday. I just booked my motel today and talked to the director of the comp. I'll register the morning of the show. He said the figure division is huge this year!!!!! That being said I have no visions of placing, but really, really want the experience. I think I will have a great time and learn how it's done and learn from my mistakes after.
