Work It

First things first: I'm a week overdue for a weigh in. Since my weight has slowly been creeping up over the last few weeks, it's no surprise that I "forgot" to post it last week.

Three weeks ago, I was 168.4. Two weeks ago, I was 171.0. This morning, I was:



I'm all about using the "fluctuation" excuse, because a lot of times (especially if you weigh yourself on a daily basis) your weight does fluctuate up or down a couple pounds. However, four pounds over the course of three weeks is definately not a fluctuation. That's called putting on weight. I definately need to work on getting that number back down.


...............................................................................



Other than announcing to the world how much I suck at losing weight, I really didn't have anything to blog about today. Therefore, I decided to do what any normal person would do and bring my camera to the gym with me.





Look at those guns ;)

Please ignore my horrible form in this next picture. I used to not be able to do tricep dips at all, plus I was laughing. I'm working on it, I promise!



Yeah, I'll just stand here and take pictures while you do curls.

After our photo shoot lift, Eric had me do some sprints on the treadmill. Here's what I did:

  • 7.5 mph warm-up, 2 min, 0 incline
  • 9.0 mph sprint, 30 sec, 0 incline
  • rest 30 sec
  • 9.0 mph sprint, 30 sec, 0.5 incline
  • rest 30 sec
  • 9.0 mph sprint, 30 sec, 1.5 incline
  • rest 30 sec
  • 9.0 mph sprint, 30 sec, 2.0 incline

After the 2.0 incline sprint, I just worked my way back down to a 0 incline. Also, not every rest was 30 seconds. Eric started to feel sorry for me because I probably looked like I was dying so a couple of the rest periods were actually a whole minute. I'd feel sorry too if the person next to me looked like this:





It was a good work-out though, and I obviously need someone to push me ;)


Right now I'm eating this big plate of sweet potato fries:




And drinking this protein shake:

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Typically if I have nothing to write about then I just don't post. I used to try and post everyday but stopped after a while.

    Great job at the gym too! You'll see those numbers go down again in no time :)

  2. That workout sounds intense! Last time I tried to do sprints after lifting, well lets just stay it wasnt pretty :) and 9.0 is hard..good job!

    Don't let the #s get you down, tomorrow is a new day so you can start fresh :)

    As for not having anything to blog about, I have been having the same issue! I dont want to post a pic of my oats and salad bowls that I eat everday, so Im not posting daily and trying to think of creative things to write about, stuff that I would want to read on other peoples blogs.

    Have a great night!!

  3. I like this post of yours. Seeing where you exercise. Great stuff!
    I see you have a chocolate protein shake. I prefer mine to be strawberry or vanilla and I prefer Whey protein.
    If I have nothing to blog, I just don't blog at all.
