Diet has been completely out of control lately
Not good...While I have been graced with a fast metabolism and haven't gained weight from all the crap I've eaten, I look really soft. I'm taking back control of my food intake today..but the latter part of the week/the weekend isn't going to be good. Easter weekend at the parents' and they don't get the healthy eating thing at all. Hopefully I can pretend that I don't see the chocolate, cookies, bread, and chips...
I'm mostly back on track with my gym schedule..tomorrow will bring me up to pace. Friday I hit a few leg exercises just so that I was doing something after the atrocious amount of food I ate on thursday. I was EXTREMELY happy with the squats that I did...(I also did leg extensions and curls)
45lb (just BB) x 8 for warm up
65lb x 10 for 3 sets
85lb x 4
85 still seems so low, but it's just extremely encouraging to be increasing.
Yesterday was a double workout. Legs at 7am before I went into work. Thank god I did, too, having a good workout got me focused, calm, and relaxed and I really needed to be with the day we had. I was extremely efficient and I had no trouble multi-tasking, I didn't once feel overwhelmed by doing 3 things at once. I absolutely attribute all of that to the workout beforehand.
Single leg extensions (40lb each leg) - 9reps x 3
Single leg curls (40lb each leg) - 10reps x 3
Glute kickbacks (45lb I think..) - 12reps x 3
Squats - BB x 8 (warmup), 65lb x 10reps for 3, 85lb x 6reps
Deadlifts 115lb x 8 for 3
Lunges (w/ 17.5lb DB in each hand) - 20 reps/leg (I was ok with these - it must be the frequent tempo change in the class that screws me up so much)
Standing calf raises (w/ 30lb BB) - 30reps x 3
After an exhausting few hours at work, I was back in the gym for an upperbody workout..I changed up the order a bit, doing chest then back..Hoping to get a bit more out of the back exercises this way. Plus being a bigger muscle group it should be done first..right? lol I also started dropping and doing 10 pushups after every 2 exercises plus my 3 sets at the end of the workout. That increases the total amount from 42 (3 sets of 14) to 95 (I increased the final sets to 15).
Flat bench 65lb x 9 for 3
-10 push ups
Pull ups (on gravitron - lifting 80% BW) 10 for 3
Seated cable rows (not sure how the weight works on these cables...the pulley's are weighted, it's weird, but roughly 60-70lb) x 10 for 3
- 10 push ups
Cable bicep curls (again, weird weight..roughly 45lb) x 10 for 3
Incline bicep curls 17.5lb/hand (increased weight) x 8 for 3
- 10 push ups
Lateral DB raise superset w/ Front DB raise - 10lb x 8 for 3 (3 sets each way)
DB shoulder press 17.5lb/hand x 10 for 3
- 10 push ups
Skull crushers superset w/ tricep press (30lb BB) 8reps x 3 for SC, 10reps x 3 for TP
Tricep extensions 25lb x 12 for 3
- 10 pushups
Standing BB rows 50lb (increased weight) x 15 for 3
Wide grip pull downs (Again, weird weight..something like 60 - 70lb) x 10 for 3
- Pushups 15reps x 3, one incline, one flat, one decline
It STILL felt like something was missing! Like it was an imcomplete workout...Help!
