Gymmie's Lookin' Fine in '09

#1 Postby gymmie » Fri Jan 02, 2009 9:18 pm

I've tried this several times and stop blogging...but hopefully '09 will be my time!

Even with the crap I've been eating, I don't have a ton of "and then some" to lose. So I'm still working on the same 80ish pounds I have for the last several years. Those who might have read my other previous journal attempts know that in 1999 I started working out with Billy Blanks and his Tae Bo workouts. I lost 75 pounds in 9 months and kept it off for several years. Well life and other things got in the way and I got lazy with my workouts and kept eating the crap.

Even when I became Vegan I quickly found tons of Vegan goodies to nom on so that kept my sweet tooth busy.

So here I am again 10 years later trying to get back to where I once was.

I'll be starting on Monday and using Gilad's Quick Fit System as my main program but I might add some Billy in the mix. Billy added a New Rear rotation in his club that I might add in as well.

I'll update once I get the ugly numbers and pictures taken this weekend :)

I was talking with a friend at the gym tonight. We were talking about enemies, and had agreed that your own worst enemy is often yourself (myself, ourselvles), we chuckled but we knew what we were saying was true, and we all know what the Good Lord says about our enimies. I've been slow starting this year but I'm looking towards the long term, so I know when that freight train start a rolling, ain't no body gonna slow it down.
Wishing us both the best in attaining our goals. :x > :( > :) > :D >

You have the potential to be quite the transformation! I also come from the heavy side of veganism (I laugh when someone tells me that all vegans are skinny! Not this one!). And I had alot of fun this fall/winter of 08 putting on some sugar this season. Now I too have to lose my precious warm bodyfat ( 8) mmm, all the goodies I packed in my body. I loved every minute of it). My mind now has a mantra playing over and over: Is the choice I am making right now going to get me to where I want to be (which is healthy, low bodyfat, and gorgeous muscles showing all over the place)? Everytime I eat or exercise I ask this question. So far it has been yes . . . . most of the time (last night was an extra bagel night snack, which is a no, but I am off to exercise it off right now! So my choice last night didn't help me, but the choice this morning will). Keep on the journey! Make choices to stay on the path! And the journey can take as long as it takes!

I have not updated in quite a while! Need to definitely get better :)

I think I'm finally focused and am back on my workouts. Last week for the first time in FOREVER I worked out all 6 days.

Two weeks ago I started a Sexy in 6 rotation and the first week was slow but did everything last week. I decided to add some additional weight work and cardio. I ended up with 3 cardio days but I think I might try to do 5-6 days of cardio.

Elsewhere, a group of us are going to be doing round 2 of our Biggest Loser Challenge, I look forward to major changes in 3 months :)

This is my tweaked rotation for the next 4 weeks, then I'll look at what I want to do after that, I might do a Jari rotation. The base is the way Tracey laid out the roation and then I'm adding the additional weights, extra cardio and push ups.

Monday--TBB A&B, Abs, additional weights, cardio and push ups
Tuesday--LBB A&B, Abs, Cardio
Wednesday--UBB A&B, additional weights, cardio and push ups
Thursday--TBB B&C, abs and cardio
Friday--LBB B&C, additional weights, push ups and cardio
Saturday--MBB A-C (or other conditioning), abs and cardio
