Great job Lisa. Putting in a lot of work already. You can keep that cardio stuff though.  :biggrinjester:

Oh, and I would gladly clean the kitchen for one of those famous steaks. :drool:

Thanks!  I need the cardio for my auld ex-smoker heart and lungs, and to burn a calorie or two.  But it is boring.  I've loaded up my iPod, but I need more to keep me going.  And yes, the steak was a good trade-off!

LOLOLOL!!!

Nice to see you journaling Lisa!!

Kill it girl!!!



Thanks Dana!  I'm trying.  It's very humbling to be journaling this time.   :-[

September 18, 2014

Squats today.  I cannot believe how my body has "seized up".  I warmed up for about 5 minutes on the treadmill, then I stretched.  I am going to need to stretch on a more regular basis - as in daily.  I am not sure which was harder - the stretches or the squats. 

I am pretty much back at square 1 on squats.  I only squatted 95 lbs today and last week.  It didn't feel any heavier than the warm-up set with the bar.  It's the whole movement - loosening up my hips, getting down as far as I can, not leaning too forward - that I am getting used to again.  I think I got a little better in the later sets, but I was done after 6 sets.  :(

Squats
Bar x 8
95 x 8
95 x 8
95 x 8
95 x 8
95 x 8
95 x 8

Cardio
Treadmill, 25 minutes.

Sheppard's pie for dinner tonight.

Yay, Lisa's back in the gym!   :)

Your squats will come back fast, I seem to recall you had a great squat!  It's amazing how quickly we get out of the groove on things like that.  I missed two weeks out of the gym after the meet and felt like I had never squatted before in my life lol.

I think Flex needs to work on his motivation skills.  ;D

You definitely got better in the later sets.

But really, with some steady and regular training you will bounce right back I am sure.

You still get deeper than 99.9% of the rest of the people I see 'squatting' in the gym.

Those two Russian wankers today weren't even doing 1/2 squats.

I think Flex needs to work on his motivation skills.  ;D

My best squat was 185.  But that was just for a single.  I used to do crazy volume.  I remember squatting for an hour and banging out set after set of 8 reps.  I'll do my best to get back there.  Thanks!

Thanks Mr Flexy.  And thanks for coaching me!

Just dropping in for support!

It is funny, when I first started working out again, I felt like I was so far behind and I would never get to where I want to be.   Time has a way of adding up.  Consistency is the key.

What really worked for me was taking an approach where I could make it work with my life (instead of being my life).   Sometimes, going overboard and all gung-ho is not the best route.   Once it becomes a habit, time will take care of the rest!

Best wishes.

Thanks much!  Yes, I'm not going as gung-ho as I did in 2010.  Training 3 days a week instead of 6. I think that is more sustainable for me, which I hope will lead to long-term consistency.  Now, I just have to be patient.

Congrats on the 10 lbs loss.

Call me crazy but I can see a difference already, especially in your face.

Nice work this morning too.  Good volume.

Another deadlift session in the garage.  An improvement over last week, but still abysmal. 

135 x 6
135 x 6
135 x 6
135 x 6
135 x 6
135 x 3   :'(

Jim asked me if I posted my journal.  I said, "No, it's embarrassing."  He said: "You did better than last week.  Progress is progress.  Stop being a baby and clean up the kitchen."!!

I will do just that.  And I have to make my Highland Stew for the week.  It's a beautiful Sunday here.  Breezy and sunny.  :)
