weight training...and the perfect 10 challenge
This picture links back to Steve's post about the perfect 10...I will be posting it in the sidebar tomorrow.
It is Steve's weight loss challenge which just happens to jive with my fatmaggedon smackdown.
In the spirit of the contest I will post 10 goals for the 10 weeks.
1.) To exercise 6 days a week...every day but wednesday. And to allow only 3 off days in case of emergency for the 10 weeks.
2) To do one hour of cardio six days a week...and 3 days of arm and leg toning and 3 days of situps. For a total of one hour and fifteen minutes, six days a week.
3.) To take a beginning and ending picture.
4.) To be able to do 200 situps in 5 minutes or less by the last day of the challenge...to be corroborated by my good and honest freind Amber from the Faith love kids and me blog.
5.) To keep my calories between 1400 and 1500 every day except my 5 pre-allotted high calorie days....I will log my food and calorie intake on this blog daily and alert the readership on upcoming high calorie days.
6.) To drink 8 cups of water or 64 oz. daily.
7.) To Eat no less than at least 1 serving of fruit per day and 2 servings of vegetables per day.
8.) To post my start and end weight...and for the weight lost during those 10 weeks to be a minimum of 8 lbs.
9.) To try one new recipe per week for 10 weeks.
10.) To get to bed by midnight every night (ACK!)
That will be the tough one.
Anyways..on to our regularly scheduled blog....
Today it was back to the gym and Arnold.
I did one hour and burned 660 calories.
I then did some stretching and realized that since I had done my situps yesterday...I really had no toning exercises planned for today.
I decided it was about time I started concentrating on my arms.
So I took two 2.5 pound dumbells and did 3 sets of 20 reps each tricep curls, bicep curls and delt lifts...arms out to the side to shoulder level then down....that was the hardest.
Then I did hamstring curls....30 total.
with 20 pounds.
It is a good start.
I think I will keep with that through January and see how it goes.
I will be posting an update on Friday from the above goals.
I had a pretty good day today.
I took my youngest to Walmart to look at some clothes to see what we might pick next month while clothes shopping.
Then after I went to the gym tonight, I stopped by the bx to look at big girl clothes.
I love the mid rise jeans, I also love oleg cassini coats.
I love the lines, although I am not going with a white.
They had the most awesome tweed oleg cassini jacket....I'm going to see if I can't find a picture.
I did, if you click on the word picture, it will take you there.
Love it, Jackie Kennedy was always somebody I admired (when I first saw a picture of her in 9th grade) oleg cassini was her stylist. I loved how simple and elegant she always looked.
I can't wait to have the shape to carry half of it off.
This post was long enough.
Good luck to all of you.
Only one more day left and then I will be posting myyear end weight.
I will do a mini look back and a goal post on the 31rst looking forward.
Here's to the new year.
p.s. Heads up san franciscans...if I were you I would pay attention. Animals don't get up and leave en mass for nothing. Just sayin'...good time to take a trip out of town in the next few weeks if you ask me. Anybody else think an earthquake is coming?
