Alright guys, I have been out with a back injury since may but I've decided it is time for me to work around my injury and get my ass back in gear. Hence the title of my log :D I can feel that I've gained some weight which is definately not good considering I have a good amount of weight to lose. And I am my cousin's maid of honour in May so it is important that i get started ASAP. So starting tommorow I am getting back with the program. I am going to aim to eat 1200 to 1500 calories a day focusing on fruits, veggies and whole grains, an minimal fat consumption. My tentative workout plan is as follows.

Monday- Weight training, 1 hr cardio, power yoga DVd
Tuesday-1 hr cardio, 1 hr yoga
Wed-Weight Training, 1 hr cardio, back care yoga dvd
Thurs-1 hr cardio, 1 hr yoga
Fri- Weight training, 1 hr cardio, power yoga dvd
Saturday- 1 hr cardio, maybe yoga

Thats only tentative, it may change. I have been doing yoga twice a week and i think it helps my back so i am going to try and squeeze it in daily. On top of this i am really busy with work and school so I need to work extra hard to keep myself in check. I definately need some extra support so please feel free to harass me when I dont post. Thanks -ash

Hi Ashley.
:)

It's a very ambitious program. :)
I'd cut the cardio after the weights to 30min - you still have yoga on these days, too!

Good luck, and have fun,
Daywalker :D

Chesty you lazy lump!
Where are your log entries? I hope you're only lazy posting, not working out!
Now get your ass up and in gear - you have to be fit for next year's vegan vacation AND to get onstage! ;)

:twisted:

Pain is temporary. We need you for the cover of next year’s calendar!

Richard, what does “sort it out mate” mean?

Cor blimey guv. "Sort it out" means "Deal with the situation" or "Do something about it".

Haha ok, ok! I'm finally posting. I ended up getting sick, of course, which ironically always coincides with the beginning of a fitness regimen. But, finally I got my butt in gear. I've still been doing yoga twice a week tho.

This morning I worked out my legs, I am opting to follow the body for life workout program.

Quad Extensions 12x25lb, 10x35lb, 8x45lb, 6x55lb, 12x45lb,
12xsquats with 10 lb dumbells
Lunges 24x5 lb 20x8lb, 16x10lb, 12x12lb, 24x10lb
12 hamstring lifts ( where you lay on your back and put your legs
up on the bench and lift you body with your legs, i have no idea
the technical term)
Calf Extension on step 12x5lb, 10x8lb, 8 x10lb, 6 x12lb, 12x10lb
single calf extensions on step, 12x8lb each leg
Abs (with the nordic track ab machine we got like 8 years ago, haha i dont even know if them make it anymore)
5 sets of 12 upper abs
5 sets of 12 lower abs

I know that kindof looks like chinese.

It was an intense workout, seeing as its been a while since I worked out my legs. But it felt great. I plan on doing some yoga later today. And tommorow I will do cardio and yoga.

I'm will be keeping track of my diet here

i am planning to eat around 1500 calories on weight training days, and 1200 on cardio days.

Today I did the Body for Life 20 min high intensity cardio on my recumbant bike. I think it could have been more intense if my glutes weren't so sore from all the lunges I did yesterday. I will be doing around 40 minutes of yoga at around 12:30 and hopefully I will keep my diet clean.

20 min high intensity workout on recumbant bike. Definately more intense than on tuesday. I was able to push harder because my butt hurts less. I still havent been eating that great tho. Too much vegan pumpkin pie. Which is almost good for you...pumkin and tofu...and sugar *cough.

Good work on the BFL workouts Ash, they can be pretty intense.

I may give them a try next year when I start cutting. Until then it's onward and upward to 250 pounds! Only 6 more pounds to go for my 2005 goal, I've still got time. :D
