Last week, I gazed at the offerings in the bin at Pretzelmaker in Kahala Mall and snapped pictures of them as Rich bought his coke and my diet coke from them. I didn’t eat any, but went home and stared at this picture, and imagined myself eating them.
I’ve started Month two (of three) in Kirstyn’s plan. Month two involves working out five days in a week in the gym, focusing on the following muscle groups: leg1, chest/tris, back/bis, leg2, and shoulders. In addition to the five weight workouts, I need to have four days where I do thirty-five to forty minutes of cardio. I’ll probably try to run or do elliptical if I have knee issues or just don’t feel up to running. (Though I hate the elliptical more than running).
Also new this month, is the introduction of a SUPERSET, which she explained was doing an exercise, and then really quickly, with no rest inbetween, going into a second exercise. For example, she has me doing: Flat bench press 5 sets of 10 SUPERSET with triceps bench dips.
I think I lost a couple of pounds with her workout last month, where I was going to the gym four days a week in the first two weeks, and then ramping up to five days of weights… and doing cardio whenever I felt like it.
Hopefully this yields even better results. I’ve noticed my appetite changing these days. I’m feeling more full, more often, and work hard to balance out my meals.
