Kim's Beast Training

#1 Postby klouisjean » Wed Dec 21, 2011 1:23 pm

This is my first entry in my Beast log, I have a full schedule of events for 2012 and many goals I would like to see checked off the list. "Beast" you say? Well one of the events is a Spartan Beast: a 10+ mile obstacle race in Vermont USA. A lot of my training will be geared towards this. I also have several other races signed up including a marathon. I also want to reduce my BF to 20% or lower by the end of next year. Right now, I am currently finishing up Jamie Eason's LiveFit program and have managed to reduce my bf from 31.3% to 28% in a month (not sure what it was at the beginning of the program, but that isn't bad for just a month of training).


Todays Training:

Barbell Bench Press - Medium Grip -20 reps
Incline Dumbbell Press -20 reps
Dumbbell Flyes -20 reps
Dips - Chest Version -20 reps
Pushups -20 reps
Standing Calf Raises -20 reps
Seated Calf Raise -20 reps

Tonight: Attempt a Zumba class.

I think I should start including my nutrition as well. I use the Lose It! iphone app to keep track of what I eat and make sure I get enough calories, but I think it would be good to have it listed out so I can easily see it and figure out where I can make adjustments. I am usually pretty consistent in what I eat daily, when I find something that works and that I like I stick with it, every day. Usually my breakfasts, snacks and lunch are the same everyday and my dinner sometimes changes to add variety.

Today's food:

Pre-workout breakfast:
Chocolate green smoothie (almond milk, frozen banana, cocoa, frozen blueberries, spinach)

Pose-workout breakfast:
Homemade GF pumpkin protein bar
glass of water with ACV
cup of green tea

Snack:
orange, green tea

Lunch:
cut up bag of carrots
Salad (lettuce, cucumber, mushroom, sunflower seeds, nori, carrot, lemon juice, celery, vinegar)
apple
green tea

Snack:
Cut up bag of cucumber

Dinner:
Spaghetti squash with cooked lentils



Note: I want to add chia seeds back into my diet, I used to eat them everyday then I stopped for some reason. I either will add them to my smoothie or add them to a bowl of oats for a post-workout meal. I might try both and see which works best for my stomach and training.

Wow, your journal is super consistent, and so are your workouts!
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.

Thanks!!! I am trying at least to be consistent. Unfortunately I am sick, so right now I am just trying to keep my eating healthy until I am feeling well enough to kick butt in the gym again.

Ah, this is such a work in progress. I saw that someone else posted their measurements and other info plus a "before" pic. I think that this is a great idea and I think I will incorporate this as a way to see my progress and to be more conscious of what I am doing.


so from last time I was weighed and measured (about a month and a half ago):

Height: 5'5"
Weight: 150 lbs
Body Fat: 28 %

Goal:
Weight: 138 lbs
Body Fat: at least 20 % if not a little lower


I will post a picture at a later date, perhaps this weekend.
