Default My on-line jounal.

I am new here and I am posting my very first journal. I have always worked out but have slacked big time this summer. I got married in May and haven't been really motivated to work out since. I worked out very hard before hand and I sort of lost my motivation.

But now I'm back in action!

Any feedback would be great!

30 years old
127 lbs

My goal is to get more definition and a lot stronger oh and try and get back to 120. My biggest issue is working hard. I am bad at really pushing myself.

Starting with Monday:

Incline dumbbell flyes
15 - 10,10,8
40 - 10,8,8

How about signing up for the HYPERplasia Challenge for some extra motivation?

i suggest trying some shocking methods...

also, try not to concentrate on the 120 lbs. try to make sure you like the way you look. a better measure is how your clothes fit and your bodyfat %, not what the scale says.

welcome to abc, you'll love it here [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Hey girl!

"My biggest issue is working hard. I am bad at really pushing myself."
I have to disagree - your biggest issue is that your too hard on yourself! You work out more and harder than 100% of the people we know. Focus on how hard you work and the things you can do to improve your workouts rather than the negative things (like a random missed workout or a cheat day on diet).

Question: when you post your dumbell excercises - is the weight per dumbell or total weight of the two db's?

"Side raises 7.5 - 10,8,8 (how do I get stronger on these?"

Have you tried doing dropsets? I learned about these from reading Tuf's journal. Example: 7lb db's x 10 side raises, immediately put the db's down and pic up 5 lb db's and do 10 side raises, immediately pick up 3 lb db's raise and hold for 30 seconds. Do 3 sets like this. It burns like hell!!

Your workouts look good! i'm looking forward to keepin' an eye on ya!

I agree with Soccerchic - the 12 week fat burning program is a good one. I'm going to start it next Tuesday. I'll let you know how it goes.
