A Healthier Me - Day 50

Only did four days of workout last week, wasn't feeling so great and couldn't motivate myself to get out there on Friday. Even today I have a tough time motivating myself but manage to drag myself out there. Not sure if it's the stress of not having a job, funds running low, the expense/stress of fixing our well or a combination of all these things but I haven't been in the greatest of spirits. 

Today is Monday, weight in day..  210

Today's Workout

30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical
3 sets of ten on the chest fly for my chest (75 lbs)
3 sets of ten on the curl arm for my biceps (45 lbs)
3 sets of ten on the free weight (110 lbs)
3 sets of ten working on my back (75 lbs)

Yeah I gained weight last week.. One and a half pounds. Kind of knew I was going to gain weight, since my birthday party I haven't been keeping to my better eating... kind of disappointed in myself but what's done is done.. going to have to work harder to lose weight next week.


  1. You do realize that with the amount of work you're doing with weights you will gain some muscle mass. And muscle mass weighs more than fat. Another way to gauge how you are doing is how your clothes are fitting you. Your workout is going to gradually change the shape of your body. Something that you might want to also incorporate into your workout are moves to work on the abdominals. Basic crunches are a start. :)

  2. Yeah I want to lose more stomach weight before starting adominals crunches :)

  3. Then focus more on the cardio and less on the weights first. Once you've started to shed some of the weight, then you can bring in the weights again. That's not to say you should cut weights out entirely, but just cut back so that you're at least toning your muscles and not building them up. :)
