I am so tired of starting over! But its my own fault. I let myself quit. Life happens, things get busy, I am now going to school full time on top of working full time and being a full time mum. But. I HAVE to make tome for me to get back in shape and healthy!
I am going to do it!
I am going to put it all there right now!!
I weigh 170 pounds!! *Insert CRYING Emjoi!*
According to different BMI calculators:
18.5 – 24.9
25 – 29.9
Your Body-Mass Index (BMI) is
BMI = 32.12 kg/m2 (Obese Class I)
normal BMI range: 18.5 – 25 kg/m2
normal weight range for the height: 97.9 – 132.3 lbs
To be considered normal I would need to weigh between 100 and 130 pounds.
My goal is to get to 120 Maybe 115.
I have actually been moving more since i got my new position. But not enough apparently!
*I plan to cut bad carbs- breads, pasta, rice, potatoes, things like that.
*I also plan to start the apple cider vinegar cleanse ( one tablespoon of Bratts apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water before each meal.)
*Starting T25 tonight
*starting Piyo AND T25 tomorrow (T45 in the morning and Piyo at night)
When I get home I will take a Before Picture. *insert cry Emoji!* and in 25 days I will take an after.
I want to hear from you! Who needs motivation and wants to start today with me?!
I realized I never took a Before picture. So I made sure to take one today.
I only have one arm day technically last week. So not much of a change.
FitBit Charge HR is on the left arm and my tattoo for my daughter is on the right arm. I have a small one on my left wrist as well. I feel stronger in my right arm, which makes sense since I am right hand dominant.
I did 3 reps of 10-12 on 30-40 pounds on the machines. Some were harder, as I got closer to the end, and I didn’t do 3 reps. I will have to push threw three reps next time.
Was supposed to be arm day. We did cardio for 15 minutes then I met with a trainer to go threw the machines. Discuss goals and such.
Now I have a greater understanding of the machines and my favorite upper body and core machines were the ones I was most intimidated by!
Have you been to the gym and found yourself so overwhelmed? So many machines!!! Where do I start, how do I start, am I doing right?
Well to be honest, if there is a trainer included in your membership utilize it! If its not included and you don’t want to pay for one google it.
I knew from doing my own research I was going to alternate days- upper and lower. Every day is cardio and core (Back and Abs).
Knowing what you want to achieve ahead of time is your best bet. I want to lose fat and tone up so I knew I had to do cardio for 30-45 minutes then strength train.
If you are trying to get big, you are going to want to do 5-10 minutes of a cardio to get the blood pumping and then do the strength training. You don’t want to go straight to strength training. Your muscles are like a rubber band when they are cold they will snap and cause severe damage. Make sure you warm them up with a little bit of cardio.
This is my fit mum page. I was posting a lot on my regular blog and decided I would separate the two. Soooo… Here is my journey!!! From beginning to end! Enjoy! all the posts have been moved here as well!! 🙂
