Default JerseyGirl on a mission

<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 --10 reps@15 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.

Leg curls 10 reps@30 lbs & 2 sets of 10@25 lbs

Squats 3 sets of 10@68 lbs (my bar weighs 13 lbs)

Inner thigh squats 3 sets of 10@68 lbs & 4 static holds

Lunges 3 sets of 10@48 lbs

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
5'6"
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.

Hey, that's a pretty cool idea posting a picture of your goal at the top of your journal, I might have to do that to mine too.
Good luck with any stairs that you come across today! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Keep it up!

<font color="blue">
She's a babe, isn't she?! I'm going to try. I actually can see that I'm making progress though I haven't lost much weight. I noticed that my stomach doesn't stick out over my work out pants as much as it used to (a little pooch). That's a start!

I haven't taken pictures or my measurements. BUT I have worked out harder than I ever have.

Tuesday's workout was...

Biceps

Barbell curls 10 reps@33 lbs, 2 sets of 7 reps@33 lbs (I increased my weight 5 lbs from last workout & this was a killer for me!)

Rotation curls 3 sets of 10@15 lbs each

Preacher Curls 3 sets of 10@ 12 lbs each

Hammer Curls 3 sets of 10@12 lbs each

(I think, I have to check my log at home --if this isn't correct, I'll update it tomorrow)

Triceps

Dumbbell Kickbacks 1 set of 10@10 lbs, 2 sets of 10 @ 12 lbs

Lying Dumbbell Extensions 3 sets of 10@10 lbs

One arm overhead extensions 3 sets of 10@ 15 lbs

Tricep Dips 3 sets of 16 reps--time to put a plate in my lap!

Delts I get a stabbing pain in my right delt (area) so I keep it lighter but still challenge myself.

Bent Arm Side Lateral 3 sets of 10@8 lbs

Barbell pull-ups 3 sets of 10@28 lbs

Arnold Presses 3 sets of 10@10 lbs

Not too shabby!

My eating needs a lot of work. I don't eat like ya'll do. I eat a lot of protein, but not enough vegis. And probably not enought. I don't do the supplement thing -- yet. I keep saying I'm going to go to Vitamin Shoppe & buy some flax & stuff but I haven't made it there yet. I'm trying, though.

Today, so far I have had steel cut oatmeal for breakfast. I had 5 oz of boneless, skinless chicken breast & lots of water. I've had some carrots. I need to have more vegis, I know. I just didn't plan ahead too well today. I'm doing tacos for dinner--made with 97% lean ground beef, rinsed after browning. Lots of vegis & only 1 shell. I will also have a MetRx shake later. Chocolate. MMMMM!

Yesterday, I did 35 minutes of step cardio with VERY light weights (Cathe Friedrich's Cardio & Weights tape). I like to do that because I can't run, it hurts my knees. If I keep the impact low on stepping, I'm ok with that. But it gets boring so using the light weights of these types of workouts, I keep my heartrate up without getting bored.

I don't know if I will workout tonight or not. I have a cold (poor baby) and feel like crap--no energy. If I can muster the energy, I will do chest & back. I won't work out if I feel like crap, though.

Comments welcome! </font>

Best of luck in your pursuits. That is an awesome goal. I am a firm believer in anything is attainable if your heart is in the right place. You can do it!!! Work hard and before you know it you will be there.

<font color="blue"> Well, I did manage to work out last night. And actually did pretty well. Here's what I did...

Back
Cable Pull Downs--3 sets of 10@40 lbs
Barbell Rows--3 sets of 10@43 lbs
Dumbbell Rows--3 sets of 10 w/20 lb dumbbell

Chest

Barbell Bench Press--3 sets of 10@48 lbs--my chest is smokin' today!
Inclined Dumbbell Presses--3 sets of 10@15 lbs
Dumbbell Flies--3 sets of 10@15 lbs

Did I say that my barbell bar only weighs 13 lbs (I weighed it LOL) which is how I come up with "funky" weights.

3 sets of 10 pushups on a decline

I'm lifting really slowly--sort of the slow burn effect. It's really making my muslces sore! I'm loving the feeling.

Tonight, if I have time before church (Good Friday & all), I hope to do some cardio. If not, I'll do that & my legs tomorrow. YIKES!

I'm fighting a cold or allergies (can't decide which). I feel like garbage & when I take a deep breath, I start to wheeze. So, I haven't worked out since Thursday. I hope to get back on it tonight but we'll see how I feel when I get home from work.
