DAMN, girl!!! Youz a strong girly! So, I have a question for ya...what would you consider to be your best bodypart (not necessarily your strongest).
Ok, maybe a couple of questions...what do you workout for (bodybuilding, fitness, overall health)? Don't know why I'm asking...just curious I guess. Feel free not to answer...lol.
01-13-2010, 07:56 PM
I guess you could say I train for all three. My ex was fat and I want my kids to see a different way to be.
I also need to represent for the companies we have. I need to go into a meeting and talk to people as if I live the life
And yes, after having kids, overall health. Otherwise they would run me ragged!

Cardio was 40 min and is done today!! Yay!! I have been unable to go to sleep and then stay asleep once I finally do go to sleep. It is killing me and my strength. As well as by 6pm when I train its a fight to make myself go. So tonight I will be using melatonin at least to see if it knocks me out. I hate to do it because it makes it hard to get up with my daughter at 6am for school!
01-14-2010, 08:13 PM
Back day...so I trained with a fat girl today and payed the price, sigh, we did plyo fat burning exercises. Now mind you I have had no quality sleep for 2 days so I loaded up all day on stims to stay awake! As well as did 45 min of am cardio.
We started with single arm lat pulldowns for 10 per arm supersetted with 15 jumps from the floor to a bench landing on the bench in a squat for 4 sets.

I train with Natalie as my trainer, she is the only one who spots me.
However she trains group classes, you never know who will be there. Alot of the times its just her and I. But she is the one who does all the spotting. Generally I don't suffer due to someone elses weakness. But lol this time she must have decided I needed it.
I'm not patient, lol , nor known for it at the gym. If the people I train with make me mad I actually withdraw in myself and train better.
Today it was bad because I either have a stress fracture in my shin or shin splints and the skipping jumping stuff was agony

Sorry I've missed your log C, somehow slipped under my radar. I'm trying to keep up my gym routine, hoping yours give me a bit of inspiration. I have to hit it at crazy hours nowadays.
Fingers crossed it's not a stress fracture so you can keep giving it 110%! Keep up the hard work!
01-19-2010, 08:47 PM
Hey!!! I hear you on the weird hours, it makes it harder! Well not to much can be done with a stress fracture, so unless I'm in daily pain I will be ignoring it

I am really NOT looking forward to back day! I injured my shoulder Tue and made it worse on chest day. I can only image back day being full of things to hurt me.

Then due to the shoulder we called it good
01-21-2010, 07:48 PM
Oh, come on! Where's that warrior spirit I usually see?! lol
So, how you been lately? I see you had a "bout" a couple of days ago. How's your progress for the Arnold? BTW, is it just because it's the Arnold or do you have to "get fit" for something in particular? Hey, look at me - Mr. Nosey!
01-21-2010, 07:54 PM
The company has business meetings so hence wanting to be in shape. I'll be meeting people that I've never met. As far as muscle goes I'm good. Bodyfat I'm not happy with but I'll get there. It would be easier if I wasn't forced to entertain business meetings with people that want to drink. But mainly I'm doing for me.

I did an hour on the elliptical today to punish myself for doing no cardio for so long
01-23-2010, 07:06 PM
I need to do more than that for punishment for our business meetings that don't have the same goals as I do physique wise...for the love of money ???

So while I was out I ran into a trainer who has not seem me in awhile. He said I have put on muscle. So while thats not my goal, its better than fat. I can see my abs now so I'm still leaning out.
01-24-2010, 03:01 PM
01-24-2010, 06:27 PM

It was nice to hear I had gained muscle. Sometimes its hard to be objective when you look in the mirror. So when the scale said I was up 4lbs I was thinking of all the cardio and protein I have had thinking, fat gain how...
