Pacgirl's diary

#1 Postby Pacgirl » Fri Nov 09, 2012 5:43 am

well, today i decided to get started with this.
i went running, did
1 km running
1/2 km walking
1 km running
1/2 km walking
1 km running
1/2 km walking
1/2 km running
total= 5 km
it was really hard!! i tried to do HIIT but my runnig mate didnt like the idea so i think i will follow her (she is trying to increase the running distance and decrease the walk).
tomorrow im buying a barbell to start lifting at home, i have done bodybump for 3 months at the gym but i decided to quit for two reasons, theres too much people at the gym (summer is coming) and i have read that i will achieve more results if i go for lower reps and higher weights.

i had some pasta with tomatoes and beets before the run and a glass of soy isolate after it, i dont remember the rest! next time i will

forgot to write down my goals>>
i have 51 kg, 20,1% fat. my goal is to be 18% fat by january 10. also improve my posture, i have seen photos were i stand really stooped.

Warm-up: 10min cardio on elliptical
2 sets each:

google is my weapon! lol! and its really funny because i learn a lot from you (dont teach bad things you people!)
im feeling better now!
weights today
Warm-up: 10min cardio on elliptical
2 sets each:
- Dips 10, 10, no weight, only my body
- Chinupps 3, 3, assisted with a 15 cm step so i can reach the bar easily- really hard- i also jumped a little
- Squats 15/20-15/20 , finding it hard to manipulate the barbell without hurting my back! i lift at home so i have to lift the barbell from the floor to my back. its really heavy and i made some dangerous movements, tried to put it on the table first, suceed but it was really dangerous. next time ill try using dumbells, i have never done squats like this but lets see.
1 set each:
-200 abs
- Calves 20/15 , soreness everywhere
i ate crap again, pizza, marmalade, white bread, etc. i have to take this seriously, im a mess!

today i did weights followed by a 4 km run. I WILL NEVER DO THIS AGAIN. it almost killed me, it was really hard to run after lifting.
Warm-up: 10min cardio on elliptical
2 sets each:
- Dips 12- 10
- Pullups 4-4
- Squats 10/20 -10/20
1 set each:
- Crunches 200
- Calves 22/20
im having some problems with my squats. i dont want to hurt my back, today i did it with dumbells but i think it didnt go well anyway. i dont feel muscle failure, i just stop because i feel i could be hurting my soulders and my back as well. my back is really weak. im thinking about decreasing the weight and increasing the reps, but not sure. any advice would be great here!
i improved the running thing>
1 km runnig
0,25 km walking
1, 25 km running
0,25 km walking
1, 25 km running
total- 4 km (3,5 running)
