Good evening. It's been a few days since my last post and I'm happy to say that I did workout. I've been so tired the last few days I just didn't get a chance to write. Of course, now that I'm finally ready to post I have SO much to share with you.
Push-up: 5 sets x 5 reps
NOTE: I was able to complete all of the sets doing REAL push-ups, not the knee push-ups! This is a HUGE accomplishment for me!!!!!
Inverted Row: 5 sets of 5 reps
Side Plank: 1 set x 16 seconds/side
1 set x 20 seconds/side
1 set x 15 seconds/side
NOTE: I had a hard time with side planks this time...for some reason it's easy on my left arm and really hard on my right arm.
Barbell Squat: 5 sets of 55 lbs x 5 reps
Weighted Bench Dips: 5 sets of 5 reps
Bent-over Barbell Row: 5 sets of 55 lbs x 5 reps
Do you know what this means? I HAVE COMPLETED PHASE 1! I've worked out 3 days per week for 4 weeks! I'm so proud of myself for sticking to it! I've even inspired my husband to start working out again this week.
Here is my progress after 4 weeks. I gained a pound, but I'm not worried. I've built a lot of muscle. There isn't a drastic change in my body but there are a lot of subtle changes I've never seen before.
Next week I'll start another program and focus more on my nutrition. It's after midnight and I'm extremely tired. I think I had more to say but it's hiding behind my eyelids.
Have a great Sunday!
