Yeah it has cooled down here too but looking at yet another warmup... Getting tired of this heat cause the dogs can't enjoy being outside!!! I am glad to be lifting that 100 lbs! I just keep seeing my numbers improve weekly and I really want to see more definition

Annoyed with work today... still super exhausted so that is probably why I am annoyed.

Cardio: 40 min AM walk with dogs, 20 min PM walk with dogs, 60 min yoga

Chest and shoulders
Pushups with gradual incline: 20 reps, 15 reps, 12 reps
Ball crunches: 3 sets 30 reps
Dumbbell bench: 25 lbs 15 reps, 35 lbs 15 reps, 35 lbs 15 reps (went for 40 on last set but shoulder wasn't having any of it)
Incline Fly: 15 lbs 20 reps, 20 lbs 15 reps, 25 lbs 15 reps, 30 lbs 12 reps
Shoulder press: 25 lbs 15 reps, 30 lbs 12 reps, 30 lbs 12 reps
Medicine ball twist: 3 sets 40 reps
Side delt raise: 10 lbs 15 reps, 15 lbs 10 reps, 15 lbs 10 reps
Rear delt raise: 8 lbs 15 reps, 10 lbs 10 reps, 10 lbs 10 reps

Trainer texted me and gave me the option of doing my own workout at the gym or suffering the heat at his studio and train with him. I said I was game for suffering the heat. The air conditioning coils froze up and shut off. I can say it really wasn't bad in the studio. I am a beast I can brave the heat and cold :)

HEHEHE so I checked out VBB & Fitness book from the library and handed it to my trainer :) He was thumbing through it and got pretty excited about it. I think now he can start learning about a plant based diet and possibly come up with a diet plan just in case he gets more clients like me. A mutual friend was like he does need to know cause more and more people are going that direction

Ok so today I didn't fight my weakness very well. I wanted to do a face plant into the german chocolate cake at work but instead made a huge batch of kettle corn instead and ate most of that...... Oh well. Again my trainer wrote down my workout and let me go. Not really sure I am liking that but it is hard to train me and 2 other people at the same time. He does come over for the big lifts to spot me though.

Cardio: 20 min elliptical cardio program lvl 3, 20 min 9% incline 3.0

Back
Band row: 3 sets 20 reps
Assisted pull ups: 2 sets 15 reps, 1 set 10 reps
Bent over wide grip row: 65 lbs 15 reps, 95 lbs 12 reps, 3 sets 115 lbs 10 reps
Upright rows: 15 lbs 15 reps, 20 lbs 12 reps, 3 sets 25 lbs 10 reps
Incline dumbbell row: 15 lbs 15 reps, 15 lbs 12 reps, 20 lbs 10 reps, 2 sets 25 lbs 10 reps

Yesterday I hit complete exhaustion. Was falling asleep at work, went through the motions at the gym for cardio and really wanted to skip dinner but ate bad... When I went to bed I crashed hard but ultimately feeling better today. Yoga wasn't as refreshing due to my inability to clear my mind and relax.....

Talked to trainer about my idea and he is going to research it so that we have a VERY clear idea and game plan but looks like it will be a go next month!!! He was loading up the barbell for squats and I said go big or go home and well I went big! Starting to notice a lot of my lifts are hitting triple digit numbers!! Biceps are severely lagging behind but they will get there.

Cardio: 2 30 min sets elliptical weight loss program level 5, 55 min yoga

Legs
TKE: 3 sets 20 reps
Box squats: 3 sets 20 reps
Weighted squat: 65 lbs 15 reps, 115 lbs 15 reps, 135 lbs 12 reps, 160 lbs 8 reps (would hate to find my max rep.....)
Walking dumbbell lunges: 20 lbs 10 reps, 30 lbs 10 reps, 30 lbs 10 reps
Stiff leg deadlift: 65 lbs 15 reps, 85 lbs 15 reps, 90 lbs 15 reps

I know where I can add more weight and will be doing so next week. The trainers want to put me and another client up against each other to see who is top girl. I have her on squats and she has me on walking lunges... she can carry 60 lb dumbbells!!! That's 120 lbs!!!!!!!! I have done 70 max but my trainer wants me to surpass her. I smell competition brewing......

How motivational! If you can get to 120 lbs dumbbells for lunges, then your biceps will be huge like your legs! Oh, I would love the challenge of that! Though I am very competitive and would hurt myself just to be on top. So be smarter than me at least! Though with respectable trainers watching you both, you should be OK.

I told the other client you can be the queen of lunges I will be the queen of squats lol. She wishes she could squat what I squat. Trainer keeps finding new definition but still won't take a pic so I can see... NOT FAIR!!! I get to go back to boot camp but can't push myself as hard as normal. Only going to gradually add it back in so once every 2 weeks for now
