So, it shouldn't surprise anyone that I gained 1.6 lbs this week. I weighed in at 216.2. I'm not concerned. Without counting and without working out, I think that's a pretty good number. I'm still not strictly counting ~ I'm eating when I'm hungry and I'm making good choices.
However, this week I do plan to add the cardio back in. I lifted today, tomorrow I plan to run, Wed lift, Thursday Zumba, Fri lift and rest Sat & Sun.
There have been some questions about what, exactly, I'm doing with this new program. So I'll give you a little run down of what I did last week:
- Squats (15 reps x 2 sets) (Mon & Fri)
- Rows (same as above)
- pushups ( " ")
- step ups ( " ")
- prone jack knife (stability ball) (same as above)
On Wed of last week (and Mon/Fri of this week):
- Dumbell overhead press
- lat pull downs (up to 80 lbs on those ~ Whoot!)
- stability ball crunches
I seriously cannot say enough great things about this program. I can already tell I'm getting stronger, and I have to admit I peeked. I'm already losing inches :)
