<font color="blue">I'm jumping in to this with both feet. I found a website (www.rachelcosgrove.com
) with a picture of a woman on it that blew me away. Rachel Cosgrove is a beautiful woman!
Ok, so I'm 40 years old & will probably not be able to look like that but I sure can try!
So, I have decided that I want her body. I know the only way for me to achieve that is to train hard & eat right. I will have my husband take pictures of me tonight before we work out which I will post to my web page over the weekend. I will also take my measurements. I'll post those tomorrow.
I absolutely need to clean up my eating--mostly just tweaking. Surprisingly enough. I need to eat more & stay away from the coffee house in the morning. LOL
Last night I worked my legs. Here's what I did...
Tall box step ups
lb dumbbells & 2 sets of 10@20
lb dummbells -- the dumbbells really pulled on my arms & I can't raise them to put them on my shoulders, I may try using my bar on my shoulders next time.
lbs & 2 sets of 10@25
3 sets of 10@68
lbs (my bar weighs 13 lbs)
Inner thigh squats
3 sets of 10@68
lbs & 4 static holds
3 sets of 10@48
I also did some ab work.
I was already showered before I realized I had not done my calves. Oh well, next time. LOL
I didn't eat very well yesterday so I won't even list that. Today is going to be a better day.
I'm going to do some cardio this afternoon--35-40 minutes of high intensity stepping ala Cathe Friedrich. I plan to do cardio 2 times a week, no more than 40 minutes at a pop.
Stats as I know them today...
40 years old in May
145 lbs (butt naked & first thing in the AM)
As time progresses & I post more information, I look forward to comments from all you hardcore trainers.
