Ok luckily I found a video of it on youtube. BTW this is the studio I actually train in but this isn't my trainer. There really is no way for me to explain how these feel. The TKE squats are the same concept only no stepping back you just do a quarter to half squat and yeah.....

Wow! Those are cool - I will try it out. Do you think it helps with your knee issue when you run?

Ok so busy evening last night didn't get to journal so here I am. Yesterday was rather a dull day in paradise but was informed I get something today... my high waisted mid thigh SPANX!!!! I am looking forward to seeing if they help at all with tightening up and holding me in lol. Mr super nice guy made me dinner last night... gluten free pizza (daiya, spinach, mushrooms, red onions, black olives) and bought me some chocolate almond dream ice cream (tasted like a brownie!!! and that is dangerous). Yesterday the scale said 173.6 today 174.4 no complaints cause that dinner was damn good! Not to mention I ate after 8:30 which I never eat that late. My running shoes I bought are not working out for me and I can't return them :(....Found a oatmeal raisin breakfast cookie recipe and made a batch up. Need to get some fat in there cause it doesn't stay with me long but is a great idea for mornings I have to get going earlier than normal.

Cardio: 30 min run walk on treadmill (3.3 walk 5.5-7.0 run) 50 min gentle yoga, 30 min fat burner program step mill (10 min lvl 5, 20 min lvl 6)

Back and Biceps
Bent over row: 65 lbs 20 reps, 75 lbs 20 reps, 80 lbs 20 reps
superset
assisted pull ups: 3 sets 20 reps (last set took away one of bands)
rear delt band pulls underhand grip: 3 sets 20 reps
superset
Dumbbell row: 25 lbs 20 reps, 2 sets 30 lbs 15 reps
back extensions: 3 set 8 lbs 20 reps
Gian set
Band lat pull: 3 sets 20 reps
Dumbbell bicep curl: 3 sets 15 lbs 20 reps
ball crunch with oblique crunch: 3 sets 30

Ok these here spanx are a pain to wiggle into and get situated in. I feel like I should only drink 2 liters of water a day now so that I don't run to the bathroom all the time! I need to get a couple more to alternate between. Why did I ever let myself get so damn fat!?!?!?!?

Ok working 7 days a week is hell. I went and bought another pair of spanx with the help of 2 sweet people! I can now alternate them although my pants no longer want to stay up. Next investments a belt and new workout pants! Yesterday was a total rest day did no working out and suffered from swollen feet by the time I went to bed grrr. Today I hit the gym before work to boost me up and then did a nice easy walk after work. Tried to color my hair yesterday but it didn't really take so will wait a couple weeks and try again. I am doing what I can to soften up my image instead of looking like Betty Badass all the time and intimidating everyone lol!

Cardio: 45 min lvl 5 fat burner program step mill, 30 min treadmill 3.0 2% incline

172.6 could the spanx be helping??? I was stuck between 173.4 and 175.8 for soooooo long!!!! Spanx I said it before and I will say it again... why can't you be a little bit easier to get back into???

Ok today was a hot one... and the spanx made it even hotter! Today my trainer worked out with me and one of the other trainers, who is a chiropractic student, wants to work on my back/hip for me!!! I like having friends in good professions :)! I couldn't help but overhear their conversation about how their GFs were on different pages than them and I was like Oh so you mean I am in the same boat as you guys and the guy who likes me is like the girls? My trainer said that I am basically a guy hahaha! They also told me I need a manly man and I said I can't find one cause they are all taken :/....

Cardio: 45 min step mill lvl 5 fat burner program.... was going to walk but it was close to 9 and I wanted to get home

Chest/shoulders/triceps
superset
Flat dumbbell bench: 20 lbs 20 reps, 25 lbs 20 reps, 25 lbs 20 reps
Swiss ball crunch: 3 sets 20 reps
superset
Incline dumbbell bench: 3 sets 25 lbs 20 reps
Pushups: 15 reps, 20 reps, 20 reps
superset
Arnold press: 3 sets 15 lbs 20 reps
Band rear delt w/ underhand grip: 3 sets 20 reps
superset
Kickbacks: 3 sets 10 lbs 20 reps
Dips with feet on chair: 3 sets 20 reps (shoes were slick feet kept trying to slide off. had to bend my knees and dig heels in)

I keep trying to talk my trainer into competing in at least the boardshort category cause well he already pretty much has the body for it and wouldn't really need to do much in the way of dieting. Maybe I can talk him into it.....

woot woot!

I wore Spanx once...oy...years ago for a tiny tiny pair of pants...again..oy

Target carries a line of "undergarments"- the "lower end" of Spanx ,and it says by the creator of Spanx RIGHT on the package...even us somewhat little peeps need a spanx now and then (that sounds kind of naughty...and kinda true ;) )...but they have a bra that is back fat pudgeless..LOVE it ( when I wear a bra..I am addicted to sports bras in lieu of real lingerie and unlike some here, I can't (and won't) wear my mom's. However, my 16 year old daughter borrowed one of my sport bras just recent...lol.

What kind of running shoes did you get?

Keep it up Synny.

The bra is next lol. I do have that spanx you mentioned plus one by hanes
I prefer the hanes one. The running shoes I have that I can't run in are the nike free run. I have been sticking to my saucony cohesion ones that are really olds. Btw tried on a pair of size 13 denim capris and they fit beautifully. Tried on a large shirt was actually a bit on the loose side woot!

Today was a mentally challenging day for me. My client was not herself today and almost made me walk off the job and not go back. Got to sneak in a little extra cardio tonight in the form of mowing the front yard. Didn't have enough sun to do the backyard so maybe I will do some of the back tomorrow after legs training! Ready to put today behind me!

Cardio 20 min push mowing, 22 min recumb bike, 20 min lvl 6 fat burner step mill, 50 min boot camp

Love it...channel the inner runner...if i miss one thing...it is THAT. And lifting....and sex. No seriously...there is nothing as mentally stimulating than a long run, outside at 6 am ...watching a sunrise and knowing, like the Goddess Nike that "do it" thing. It kept me sane for years. But lifting and stairmill ripped me up...hmmm..wonder what the sex. Did????lol.

Hair stuff sounds fun...buy cheap clips at Claires and decorate yourself...i swear the soccer team moms were the most creative women i ever saw when it came to hair stuff for the girls. Must be why i was a runner mom...ball cap! (currently entering my 8th week of NO workouts...havent recovered not one iota from this scaitica BS thing. Gettig a bit soft and probably up 6 -8 pounds...maybe more but not too much from when i competed in Oct 2011. But soft. I got the ab pooch thing.yek. Need spanx!;). But relearning my food...again. All good (even when it doesnt feel it)

You inspire! Thanks for making my night!
