I made it a whole Week with my workout program. It has been a while since I have done that. Usually I last about 2-3 days before I get too lazy to drag myself out of bed. I just need to stay motivated. Alex, Keep the harrasment coming. hehe. Andi plan to make it 2 weeks and then 3, then 4, etc.

This morning I did 20 minutes of Cardio on the Recumbant bike.

In case anyone is unfamiliar with the concept of the Body For life cardio workouts and interested, here is a link to the BFL Website

Here's a link to the weight training work outs as well.

Arms Day! I woke up 40 minutes late because I accidentally set my alarm clock for 8pm instead of the morning. Something I do about once every two weeks despite my best intentions. At least I woke up in time to still workout. I just wish i would have gotten up earlier i would have had more time to get some other things done.

My workout was pretty intense. My arms are twitchy and tingly right now. I happen to be angry at both my brother and my scene partner from my acting class so I channeled that frustration. Oh wonderful mondays.

Chest Press 12x5lb, 10x8lb, 8 x10lb, 6 x12lb, 12x10lb, 12 butterflies w/ 8 lbs

Shoulder Press 12x5lb, 10x8lb, 8 x10lb, 6 x12lb, 12x10lb, 12 lateral side raises w/ 8 lbs

Bent over rows 12x5lb, 10x8lb, 8 x10lb, 6 x12lb, 12x10lb, 12 extentions on the fitnes ball

Tricep overhead extentions 12x5lb, 10x8lb, 8 x10lb, 6 x12lb, 12x10lb, 12 tricep pushups on the wall

Seated Bicep Curls 12x5lb, 10x8lb, 8 x10lb, 6 x12lb, 12x10lb, 12 hammer curls8 lbs

I want to squeeze in some yoga somewhere today too. Prolly just a few poses to loosen up my body. I need to talk to my yoga teacher about some poses to do for that area b/t my shoulders and my neck. I am so tense there, its like a rock. And it makes it worse carrying big trays of food all the time. I am gonna eat cleaner this week as well. Put some more effort into planning my meals.

I forgot to post yesterday. I did my 20 minute cardio and 40 minutes of yoga.

Today we are going to do this "New York City Ballet" workout for my acting class. Hopefully its not too hard on my back.

I'm still doing pretty terrible on my diet. I'm just stuck in the habit of eating twice a day.

Well, I skipped 4 days of workouts. The new york city ballet workout didnt work out because of some stupid technicalities. I ended up have a really horrible headache Wed, Thurs, and Friday that I think was caused by some sugar free popsicles i was eating. That aspartame will get you. Friday nite I stayed out till 4 so I make sure my drunk boss/friend got where she needed to go. Saturday I slept till I had to get up to go to work.

Today I finally got my slack ass back in gear. I had a really focused leg workout. And I've decided I really hate lunges.

Quad Extensions 12x25lb, 10x35lb, 8x45lb, 6x55lb, 12x45lb,
12xsquats with 10 lb dumbells
Lunges 12x5lb, 10x8lb, 8 x10lb, 6 x12lb, 12x10lb
12 hamstring lifts
Standing Calf Extensions 12x5lb, 10x8lb, 8 x10lb, 6 x12lb, 12xbodyweight on step
single calf extensions on step, 12x8lb each leg
Abs 5 sets of 12 upper abs
5 sets of 12 lower abs

I picked up this Budokon dvd set at Target by this guy Cameron Shayne who i believe is a vegetarian. Its a combo of martial arts, yoga and meditiation, I'm gonna see how it is tommorow.

I finally got off my ass and did a little working out. I've been trying to count staying out dancing all nite as a workout, but the amount of beer i consume in the process kindof cancels it out.

Last nite i did disk one of this yoga workout book Bryan Kests long slow and deep. It was awesome. Can't wait to have enough stamina to do both disks. I felt so great when i got up this morning. That hams and a little sore but i felt so clear.

This morning i did 30 min on the eliptical trainer with some intervals. I think im gonna do some abs and some sun salutations before i go to work.

its been about 4 months since ive worked out. Bleh. I feel so shitty. I quit drinking every night almost seven weeks ago and it seems that i have gained about 7 pounds since then which sucks some serious ass. I'm trying to get back into working out to replace my bad habit.

I have limited gym resources, but this is what my workout looked like tonight

chest press- 3x12 with 10 lbs
shoulder overhead press 3x 12 with 5 lbs
Lat pulls- 3x12 with 45 lbs
tricep pull downs 3x12 with 20 lbs
biceps hammer curls - 3x12 each arm with 10 lbs

20 min jog on treadmill. 1.5 incline 4.0 speed 5 min cool down

some stretching

it felt good to work out i hope i didnt over do it, as it has been a while. I have to be careful it is really easy for my to put stress on my back and then keep me from working out at all.

Prolly gonna try to do about 20 to 30 min of yoga in the morning before work hopefully that will keep my back loose.
