Pazios, I'm 5 - 4, 119 lbs, 16.5% Bodyfat with at least 5% of it hanging out on my ass.

Man, do I talk about anything other than my ass and carbs. ANYWAY. Believe it or not, I'm from So Cal but that picture with me holding the pan was taken in Massachusetts! I lived there for a short time and it is in the photographer's kitchen in Medway, Mass. I'm jealous that you get to experience an actual Fall season right now and I don't anymore :cry:

Good workout today accept the Stepmills are always taken and its frustrating. My butt needs the Stepmill!!!!

I don't have my log in front of me, but I did:

Tricep Rope Pulldowns 3 sets 12 40 lbs (I can usually go heavier but this was a huge heavy rope instead of the smaller one I'm used to)

Bent Over DB Rows 3 sets 15 25 lbs

Skull Crushers with EZ Bar Close Grip Tricep Press back to back 3 sets 24 30 lbs

Lat Pulldowns on Chin Up Machine 3 sets 12 60 & 74lbs

One Arm DB Rows 3 sets 10 20 lbs

Standing Calf Raises 3 sets 15 90 lbs

45 min Treadmill at an Incline, 15 min Ellyptical

I'm wiped. Getting my food together today was challenging. I just can't believe I didn't hire a trainer before. This is what I've needed all along. Someone to tell me what to do even though I know what to do.

Ok. My arms are shaking. I so wish I could tide the night off with a glass of wine tonight, but that is not an option.

Day off training today.

My trainer has compensated with slightly less calories.

TODAY WAS VERY EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I woke up with a four pack. I've seen the line develop down the middle before when my abs get lean, but dang it if I didn't see an honest to goodness FOUR PACK in my upper abs!!! Of course I ate Meal 1 and they went away but it was extremely extremely encouraging that I'm on the right track. Also I was down in weight. I am now 117.

And I am NEVER hungry. I can't believe how few calories I'm eating and I'm not hungry. I'm sure it's due to the fats he's added. I only did 1 fat serving a day (Udo's Oil, 10 Almonds, etc), but he has me doing some sort of fat with every meal and I'm losing fat and seeing muscle. Life is really good and I'm super encouraged today!!!!

I wish the nightly wine cravings would go away. Its such a psychological thing cuz I'm not hungry at all. It's just a great way to unwind and I now realize that it was really a habit to do that 2 to 3 times a week.

I know I keep saying this but I can't believe I didn't get a trainer before because I'm no longer second guessing my decisions. And I measure everything out and I didn't realize how much I love having this structure.

Everyone needs to go out and get a trainer/dietitian tomorrow!!!! Just kidding :wink:

It's a good day. Sure, my car doesen't have brakes and I'm struggling to pay the bills and don't know how I'm going to make it through till the end of the month, but my ass is shrinking, so life is good!!!!!!!!!!!! Ha, ha

Why are you trying so hard to not drink wine??? Its not that much excess carbs to worry about if you cut something out.

It makes a big difference on my physique and it lowers my guard so I want to munch on stuff that I should't (i.e. chips and nuts). I'm sure he'll incorporate some in while in maintenance.

Worked really hard today:

Smith Machine Lunges 3 x 15 ea leg at 25,35 lbs
Standing Barbell Curls 3 x 10 @ 20 lbs
Leg Extension 3 x 15 45 lbs
Preacher Curls 3 sets 12 40 lbs
DB Sholder Press 3 sets 15
Pushups to failure - 3 sets
Reverse Crunches 3 sets to failure

52 minutes Stepmill (Supposed to do an hour but had to pick up the rugrat).

Taking my Xtend throghout the workout. This stuff rocks!!!!!

Glad to be done. Everything is going perfect.

Thanks Veganitaliana!!! ;)

This one is for Zack and his calf envy (hee, hee)...

Seriously, you can have 'em. I'd love smaller calves.

Very nice, I like! You have awesome legs. Legs are sexy, don't get skinny legs.


I'm starting to get a tiny visible calf muscle! I feel like such a champ, even though I'm sure it looks funny with me squatting and my skinny little legs.

:P

116.5 today!!! :D

I know I shouln't be weighing myself every other day, but the scale calls my name somtimes.

The goal is 110 lbs and/or 12% BF. But I gott admit, if I get to 12% and my butt is still jiggling, I'm gonna go down to 10% just to see if my body is capable of being a complete tight package. I won't stay at 10% though. That wouldn't be healthy for sure.

I'm going to talk to my trainer about taking out some bicep exercises and adding more shoulder though. My biceps develop really fast and he has me on about 4 exercises for biceps and I'd like replace that with two shoulder exercises. I still struggle with behaving blindly but I'm getting better. Hey, I'm seeing phenomenol results in 5 days, so you can't argue with change.

Hey Zack,


Did you resize my calf photos? How'd you do that? My photos always come out so big. I resize them on the Image Hosting but they transfer over huge.

Is there some sort of HTML you could give me to resize for future reference?

Hello Melissa,
i had to put a lot of work in my calves to see little muscle. it is not a nations-problem:-)

But i can understand you. my beautiful wife had the same problems like you.
she is "genetic gifted". by only doing the cindy crawford video with 5 lbs dumbbells, she build big muscles :shock:

She go on a low carb & fat &cal diet und get sixpacks abs.
thats sensational for a girl to go on 10% bodyfat.

But that was to extreme, because i can already see her clavicle and pelvic bone.

That was a real heredity-problem.
