The face one makes when they're saying "Its done" at the end of a hump day workout. I've had a rough week but I've stuck to my schedule. I decided to time myself and completed the three sets in 15 minutes, 18 minutes and 17 minutes for set 1, 2 and 3 respectively. I started timing my jump rope but got confused about count so I did either 600 or 700.

Donned my white flamingo socks and a white t-shirt for the 1st lower body workout of the week; which went well. Loving my squats, though I still find the front ones a little awkward and need to get used to them. Moved outta my comfort zone a bit more and donned a white tee shirt! Notice my endobelly sticking out; when it's flat 😁 When it's domed 😝 But that's why I'm bumping up my weight training, to get rid of excess fat and hopefully get a handle on the estrogen dominance.

Ended my workout seated in my fav post-workout posture. My right leg is almost back to "normal" so its time to stop warming up at speed 7.4 to 10.4 and keep to the schedule. My weight training went well. I added in (4 x 10 each) alternating dumbbell curls and triceps rope pull downs. My under arms certainly feel it πŸ‘πŸ‘ PLUS I did, wait for it .... half a chin up, unassisted πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ I know it seems like nothing but at the beginning of the year I couldn't even do one assisted chin up. I'm determined, by the end of the year, to do five chin ups as well as pull ups. Note my 1. attempt at pineappling the hair and 2. popping shoulders πŸ˜€ Its hard, but I'm enjoying this leg of my fitness journey πŸ˜’

Today's post workout photos (ignore the poor lighting) and my Thursday schedule for the next couple of months. Completing those wide grip pull ups is my goal; I managed all of half a pull up today πŸ™„ all on my own, zero support! BUT hey Rome wasn't built in a day 😏

Hump day workout sorted and it got me going "mmmmmmmm". Also, I'm back to practising my backbends! My wrists are crappy at bearing my weight when I push up off the ground but I'm determined to do wheel proper. SO I'm trying bending back all the way down to wheel pose. But first, I've got work on the basics.

Trying to see if I could walk AND stand after today's deadlifts; 4 x 10 x 50 kilos πŸ˜₯ I thought I was stacking 5kg plates with 15kg ones to make 40kg but they were 10kg plates instead. I surprisingly didn't make constipated moose sounds, though the weight was heavy. I see 60kg deadlifts by the time I've gotta change up this schedule in June. Also, those front squats were awkward but I reckon I'm gonna get used to them soon enough 😏 Plus, I used 15kg plates, instead of 10kg for all sets/ reps for my back squats. Suddenly, squatting heavy doesn't seem like a dream anymore 😊 I'm pleased with the progress I've made, both physically and mentally. I've come far and have every intention of going further.

New month, new workout schedule. Hopefully this will help my triceps catch up to my biceps. Then I'm gonna be well on my way to having flex-worthy guns πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ I'll be doing 4 sets by 10 reps for the next couple of weeks or so, till I get my form on point. I'll also be doing a variation of lat pull downs instead of the regular ones; I'm calling them twisty lat pull downs because I actually don't know what they're called yet πŸ™„ Video of the lying cable extension pull downs in My Story!

Friday workout done and dusted πŸ˜₯ Started a new leg schedule and hopefully it'll add some much needed muscle to my Miss Piggy legs 😏
Barbell squats; 4x10
Leg press; 4x10
Dead lifts; 4x10
Bulgarian split squats;4x10
Sitted leg extensions; 4x10
Step ups; 4x10
Sitted dip press; 4x15
Reps will no doubt go up as my body gets used to the schedule. I went as heavy as I could on everything, except the BSS; I'm still using body weight only for those. My body's only just gotten used to them so I'm gonna be working on my form but will add weights in time. I love my deadlifts and I can see myself going for 50kilos at the end of the month, constipated moose sounds or not 😏 I think I've become accident prone; I stubbed my right little toe, at home on a dumbbell πŸ‘€ of all things (we need a paper bag over head emoticon πŸ™„). So my warm-up was walking on a steep incline.

One hour of spin for a warm-up followed by upper body weights. That barbell bench press was HARD which I suppose is to be expected after that warm-up. I'm getting ready to change my workout schedule next week so I tried the T-bar machine. That was only 15 kilos so things are definitely gonna get interesting 😏 but I'm as ready as I'll ever be!

The Easter break's over so its back to the grind! First lower body workout of the week went well. Looking forward to the rest of the week πŸ‘πŸ‘ Looking trim, compared to a few months ago. Pushing myself to workout beyond my comfort zone has definitely paid off. Looking forward to the next couple of months πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Made it to the gym today and had myself a lower body workout. It felt good, even though my beginning was shaky. For the last set of my barbell squats, I used fifteen kilo plates and my form was on point (said spotter). I only noticed I didn't need my belt to keep my back straight after I was done and I made zero constipated moose sounds. Not so for the leg press; last ten reps of the last set, I pressed fifty kilos (add ten and that'll be one over my weight at last weigh-in at the beginning of March) yessssss!! We're headed in the right direction 😊

And thats how my hump day workout went πŸ˜₯ sweatfest proper. I'm changing my schedule next week for the next couple of months or so. I'm still stuck on upper and lower body schedules BUT this is it for Wednesdays. You'll notice that there's NO jumping (my joints are thanking me πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘) but don't let that fool you. That second set is a killer and today I only got through eighteen minutes of the finisher but next time πŸ‘€ I'm now gonna chew on some popcorn, because my electrolytes need replacing πŸ˜’πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆπŸ™‰

AND I'm done literally πŸ˜₯ I've been neglecting my stretching/ yoga practice πŸ‘€ and I think I'm paying for it. I'm not sure how but it feels like I bruised the bottom three ribs towards the back of my back ribcage and the bottom two of the front, plus twisted or strained some muscle in in the same area. Doing the reverse crunches hurt like crazy so I didn't even complete one set. Everything else got done as the pain didn't didn't intensify as it did with the crunches. I had similar pain a year ago on the right side and it took ages to get better. I'm not going that route again and will have this seen if there's no improvement in a couple of weeks.

That face you make when you survive a crazy workout schedule and reach your goals!!! Not only am I lighter now than I was this time last year, I've also got more muscle. Take that 2017!!! I'm awesome, you're not πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ
