Happy "Almost Weekend", my Best Buddies:
I am excited because today is my last work day until I will return September 6th! Yippee! Idiot Boxes both read 158.8 today, and I pushed myself to sumo squat 60lbs x6 x4 this morning. Now that I have a written training log, I can see what needs to come next! My new shirt says: "Girls Just Wanna Have Guns!" (as in biceps.) My new profile is my main trainer and me at the gym!

Words of the Week:
"Ability is what you are capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."
I am dedicated, determined and diligent!

Happy Day, my Best Buddies!
I am moving along with my gym workouts trying to increase weight and reps. I decided to keep a little notebook as my training journal so I do not have to rely on my memory about "how heavy and how many reps" on what moves...

Next week, I am on a brief vacation and will purposefully rest five days from weights and do bicycling every day on some beautiful trails in northern Minnesota.

I will regroup with goals - and possibly revamp my nutrition plan after the vacation is done. Gym Rat suggestions?

Happy Saturday, my Best Buddies:
Well, now I am working on my next round of goals. My big dilemma is: How does one cut to lose fat without also losing LBM, and bulk to gain muscle without also gaining fat?

Bawahahahahaha - If I could solve that dilemma, I would probably be rich! I think my next main plan is work to continue to get my bodyfat% lower while still lifting as heavy as I can. Once I can get the bodyfat% where I hope to be, I can continue to muscle build.

Happy Weekend, my Best Buddies:
Today is GOAL day for me. I am mildly disappointed about my bodyfat % and waist measurement staying about the same; but I also know I was not strict on my nutrition plan in June and July. August will bring a vacation so I will need to re-group for my next plan of action after Labor Day.

On the Idiot Boxes, I am the lowest I have seen in nearly 20 years! I did PR with weights (55lb dumbbell) and repetitions (the 1000 rep challenge), bicycle weekly with my DH, continue HIIT when doing cardio, drink one gallon of fresh water daily, and my macros and carbs have been pretty consistent. And, I am UNDER my goal weight!

All in all, I did OK but will need to figure out my nutrition plan to continue losing bodyfat and not LBM.

Happy New Week, my Best Buddies!
Idiot Boxes have shown 159.2 up to 159.8 for three consecutive days!
I have the urge to log it, but prefer to wait until Friday which is my "goal day" for this month - I do not want to jinx myself! Friday is my day with the bodyfat caliper and trainer, too. Some of my goals are on point, so I am hoping to kick the rest of them!
