Hey claudia...

I made it...lol I managed all my weights today..
Took my Glutamine right after...

Had a veggy burger about an hour later..

Then went for a 7k walk with a friend...it was just a walk..no jogging nice cool crisp sunny cold air..

It was wonderful.

Had my dinner..still a veggy burger I was starving.

Now I am nice and warm inside...still lots of energy...but getting into relax mode.

I will have a bit of protein drink an hour or so before bed...

See what happens.

I got the glutamine today...

Will see how i feel in the morning.

Up at 400am tomorrow early start to work

I will do a nice walk/jog tomorrow after work.

Thanks fro all your advice...all this lovely protein and carbs (yes I had some for dinner) (sorry I was starving after that walk lol)..but it is working more energy now...love it!!!!

When do you take bcaa's what kind is the best.

Do you ever take creatine?

I have been trying to read on line about everything...but I get such mixed results.

Help!!!!

Have a great evening

Bev

Went to work from 1200-800pm...

I came home after work...got into my running gear..headed down the road.

Walked/jogged 5k...not long but enough to get some super crisp cold fresh air.

Enjoyed the run...it is supposed to snow tomorrow..which will mean after work I will do weights.

Felt great all day...lots of energy.

Good morning!

WEll I managed work...then went to go see Happy feet two at the Imax...

Then home a managed my weights too. The only thing was I was weight lifting at 1000pm....so I was awake for a while. lol!!!

So it is really cold outside...we had a skiff of snow and that has turned icy...

So I will be off to wok soon..then after work I will go for a walk/jog providing it is not to slippery out on the roads.

These last couple of weeks I have shed 4 pounds...

My body is feeling stronger every day. I wake up in a good mood...I have great energy...and I find I can go through my whole day feeling :zunge: :zunge: great.

I still however like to snack at night...and it's not always protein or veggys...sometimes I just want rice :)

Good morning

Well I managed a quick 30 minute walk/jog last night after work at around 830pm.
Sometimes I wonder about working out at this time of night...I wake up!! lol!
But on most days...it is the only time I have.
I am trying to be consistent:)

So today will be weights
sumo squat with bicep curl
lunge with one-arm tricep extension
dead lift row
bowlers lunge with single-arm row
bicep curls with abductor balance
forward lean lunge with double row
push up...i hate push up because I suck at them :)

I follow Chalene extreme from Team Beachbody
I don't go to a gym...and I have all my free weights at home...because of time and money :)

So when I do these weight it is only one set of 12 reps at as much weight as I can hold.
This is improving every week...arms are getting stronger, which is my weakest point.
The small of my back is also weak...any suggestions on what exercise I could do to strengthen the muscle???

Have a great day.

My diet is improving...but I still tend to snack on the wrong things at night once I get home. I feel hungry.

Hi there,
Glad you are keeping strong and at it. As for you being hungry...
At night stick to snacking on Veggies with hummus or Penaut butter/almond butter.
You want to avoid the crabs at night - your body does not need them...Especially rice.
Most people just find carbs comforting that is why they eat them in the pm.

As for back exercises..you can use your dumbbells and do rows..

and the Superman : )

Let me know how those work for you..

chat soon

I had a wonderful day today.

I woke up and I had planned to do a walk.jog today...but it was snowing outside.

so I bundled myself up. Put on my hiking Boots, snow pants and grabbed my camera and went walking into town.

i found snowmen built on the inner harbour...the empress hotel looking fine under a blanket of snow. Then the sun came out...and went into a little coffee shop had a latte...took myself to beacon hill park...began taking some pictures of the ducks swimming or huddling on the water...and my camera died lol!!! I love taking photos but forgot to charge the battery in the camera.

Tomorrow is an early start a work...but I am off at 100pm...and it is supposed to snow tomorrow too...so I may just take my camera back to the park...then home for some weights.

I felt great...I didn't feel rushed...got exercise for 2 hours...yes it was just walking...but I was out in the fresh air...loving it!!!!!

Good evening

So for the past two days I have done nothing except work 15 hour days..
Grrrr..........

So really what have I done besides work...well I walked to and from work each day...takes me about 15 minutes to walk.jog with a pack on my back at 430am....then coming home it takes me about 20 minutes to walk..less job...because I have been talking to people all day long.....

So weight training is nixed...because nty the times I get home at around 830pm...I am tired...because I know I am going to get up at 400am...and do that one more time lol!!

Annndddddddddd to make matters worse...it has snowed here in beautiful Victoria...it's cold...-7 and I don't feel safe walking at 430am...buttt...I bring my hunting knife with me..but I figured no one was going to be out in this weather to cold...

We only got maybe 6 inches of snow...but the people in victoria can't drive in the snow....this is including me of course...hence the driving lol!!!!

So it's is supposed to warm up tomorrow so we can get the big flakes of snow...then some rain...

Maybe if I don't work another 14 hours...I may get some weight in...I figured my legs in hiking boots...three layers of clothes...was heavy enough :)

One thing I can say...is I still ate clean and plant strong!!!

Good evening!

Well I have managed another late night at work :)

Only two more to go and I get a break.

It has now warmed up here in snowy victoria +7 and now rain...so I should be able to get a bit more walk/jog in if I can stay awake long enough lol!

I have still not done any weights in three days...I am low on the energy pole after 800pm at night...

Tomorrow should be better as I don't have to work a double shift...so I will give it a go then.

I have lost another pound...yippeee for me...as I still have to lose some fat:)

My eating habit are getting better as I am not having anymore carbs in the evening...but I still miss them :)

Yipppeee!!
I managed my weights today...
Although I was doing them at 730pm...but I still got throught it.

I feel great...and I only had to work and 8 hours shift today.

sumo squat with overhead press
lunge with calf raise
Squat with lateral raise
lunge with frontal press
squat with calf raise
sumo squat with delt raises
squat with double overhead press
lunge with lateral raise
sumo squat with calf raise.

My arms are starting to look pretty good...I have always been weak in the upper body...but I can see a little muscle forming...I have skinny arms to start with...so it doesn't take much for me to see the difference.

I will have to take some time to upload some photos..but I haven't figured out how to do that yet!!

The snow is gone...so tomorrow I should be ale to do a walk/jog after work tomorrow night...

I still crave carbs at night...because I am just getting home from work :(
So tonight I had some hummus...and a few cashews...

Good afternoon

Yesterday I walked/jogged 10k..it felt great!!

I was tired at the end...but I give thanks to the glutamine god's...it sure help[ed after my run:

Today no weights...but I just walked for 30 minutes:)

I started work at 430am...and I am always tired my first day.

Food intake is getting better.

I tend to eat my carbs and fruits during the day and leave my dinner and snack to protein and veggys.

I love hummus and cucumber or beets:)
