It's Monday - offical weigh in day.
Here's my to-day weight loss for the year. I'm going to try to keep this updated every week. I'm using my Wednesday Weigh in as my 'starting' weight instead of Tuesdays 'broken scale' weigh in.
So - today was 204. This means that in 2 weeks I've lost 1.8 lbs. Hardly the start I was hoping for. I know I said I would evaluate at the end of January - but I don't want to wait - dropping calories to 1800-1900 this week.
This is serious.
So - last night I did bis and abs. It felt good to know I honored my self promices and got it done.
This morning - well 4:00AM came WAY too soon. But I got my butt out of bed and did my thing. Amazingly enough I think it's getting *gasp* easier.
As you're aware, today is Monday. In my world Monday is leg day - whoo hoo!
Squat (+bar): 160 x 6 / 160 x 6 / 160 x 6
Leg Press/Squat: 520 x 6 / 520 x 6
Straight Leg Dead Lift (+bar): 120 x 6 / 120 x 6
Standing Calf Raises: 195 x 8/ 195 x 7 / 195 x 7
My answer to the Calf Raise problem - lower the weight, slow down the reps and do a few more of them - it worked. Whew my calves were screeming at the end.
Workouts for the rest of the week are:
Tuesday: Chest/Abs, Run 1.75 miles
Thursday: Shoulders, Run 1.5 miles
Saturday: Run 1.75 miles
I may end up throwing some extra cardio in there somewhere - something NOT running. LISS on the treadmill or Kenetics or SOMETHING. I want this weight OFF!!
I was looking at pictures last night from a few years ago. (I think December(ish) 2003) I was in the low 180's I had gone to dinner with my little sister - I looked at that photo and went - I want to be THERE AGAIN!!!
Not to STAY though. But at least get there!
