Hi. My name is Lynn. I am 24 years old. I live in Illinois, and work as an audiologist (that's hearing and balance). I am married to Guido, who you've proably already seen here on the forum (he's the guy curling the chihuahua). I first started lifting because of him, mainly because I was already at the gym to spot him. I've been a swimmer all my life, although over the past few years I've started running and even doing some triathlons. In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, needlepoint and autocross. I also volunteer at the local humane society, walking dogs and playing with the cats. I am 5'4" and 140 lbs. My goal is to lose some weight and improve my overall fitness level. I hope that by taking care of myself early in life I can be like one of my patients; she's 94, one of the first Radio City Rockettes, and she still has a pretty decent high kick!

Comments:
Last set of overhead press felt icky. Think I twisted something while raising the weight over my head. Work was boring, only a few patients. Saw Shaun of the Dead with husband and dog- very relaxing.

Hello, Lynn Lynn! Just thought I would point out how everyone has encouraging things to say here.

Might I point out that Lynn has been lifting with me on and off for the past few years, and for the past 4 months or so has been going with me regularly 3 days a week. She has made excellent gains so far. I'm proud that she's been willing to be one of the few women lifting free weights amongst the men. And might I say that she kicks my a$$ at swimming (at least long distance swimming).

Comments: Lousy Monday at work. Lots of people, mostly guys at the gym. Hard to find the weights I wanted, that's why I did 4 sets of the shrugs. And the only <a href="http://www.serverlogic3.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=11&k=decline%20bench" onmouseover="window.status='decline bench'; return true;" onmouseout="window.status=''; return true;">decline bench</a> that was available was too long for me, or rather I was too short for it. Perhaps it was the bad mood I came home from work with but I was irritated by the guys in my way and the too skinny girls fannying about with the 10's. I have mixed feelings about back and chest day. I like the back part because I think overall my back is one of the strongest parts of my body. I dislike the chest part however. I console myself with the notion that all the chest work will ensure perky boobs when I'm old and wrinkled!

Workout for Tuesday 2-1-05

Cardio:

Treadmill run
10 minutes at 5.5 mph pace
5 minutes at 6.0 mph pace
12 minutes blowouts: pace brought up to 6.5 mph for 2 minutes, then down to 5.4 mph for 2 minutes, repeated 6 times
5 minutes at 5.5 mph pace
5 minutes cool down walk

Overall distance 3 miles

Other: Stretching

Comments: I should start with a correction from yesterday's workout. The decline bench, was in fact not flat, but rather in the decline position, hence the name. I copied down the workout from my husband, who apparently was wrong! Overall, a good day. Work was better, dinner was very good and the run felt good. My cardio goal is to be ready for the Shamrock Shuffle in Chicago which is in the beginning of April this year. I did it last year and it wasn't pretty. My other cardio goal is a big swim- The Chicago Big Shoulders 5K. That's a 5K in Lake Michigan, open water. So I need to have good muscle endurance as well as strength. I until September for that.

Comments: Hump day at work. As far as the workout goes I think I"m most pleased with the progress I"ve made in the squat department. At first I was really awkward with the bar on my shoulders and I tried to do the exercise as quickly as possible. I also don't think I was as flexible, which has helped on the ATF squats. I'm trying to conquer the decline situps as well. I told Guido that we are eventually going to be able to get rid of our <a href="http://www.serverlogic3.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=11&k=washing%20machine" onmouseover="window.status='washing machine'; return true;" onmouseout="window.status=''; return true;">washing machine</a> and instead wash our clothes on my tummy!

I couldn't agree more, I think I told you about two chicks at my gym doing free weights, both are smoking, and only one who is obviously pregnant, and still she does free weights.

BTW: Lynn, your legs gotta be your strongest feature, cuz you're out squatting me, and I'm currently doing dumbell walking lunges with 20lbs. :(

Geez, two girls on this boards can out squat me, for me that's a sign of the apocolypse on my life. :cry:

Ha ha @ Homeslice.

That's not true! I haven't gone up in my lunges in awhile. And besides, I'm a beginner on the steep part of the learning curve. Remeber when you first started swimming- how you dropped time like crazy and I was fighting to shave off a second? Now we've traded places. Besides, you make gains all the time too. Console yourself with those cute buns of yours!

Comments: Day of rest. I think I'm coming down with something. My head is killing me and for once its not a migraine. Congestion perhaps. Work was a killer, stress city today. This afternoon I really thought my patient who was supposed to be seeing me for a hearing aid evaluation was having a heart attack. Turns out it was an anxiety attack, mixed with his exisiting demetia. Scary nonetheless. Tomorrow is slated as an arm day, yippie!

I am not a seafood fan. My first job in college was in a local resturant's kitchen, and I spent many nights prepping and cleaning shrimp, fish and lobster. I cannot look at another shrimp, let alone eat one. It's a texture thing. I can do fish, depending on how it's prepared. Now a plate of pork chops, that sounds great to me.

Comments: TGIF at work! This is always a challenging workout for me. I'm used to beating up my shoulders, after all those swimming workouts. BTW- Do we have any others who swim for cardio or competitively? I always love talking with other pool rats. The preachers curls were tough, my arms felt like jello at this point. After the first set Guido also pointed out that I wasn't sitting in the seat correctly! Everything has to adjusted for short me before I can do anything.

Comments: I totally slow Guido down when I run with him. I kept trying to tell him to go ahead of me, that I know the way home (we were running in our nieghborhood), and besides I had the key to the house in my pocket. He refused to give up on me and urged me onward. This leads me to believe that he's either very loyal or silly not to pursue his own goals. I also went to the humane society and walked some of the dogs. Walking an 80 pound pitbull mix is a great workout!!

Comments: Tried to do 35's for the flat DB bendch press and dropped weight on chest after third rep. This was made even more unpleasant b/c I'm about 2 days away from falling off the roof, thus that part of my body is a little sensitive right now. Overall, the workout was alright. I'm slightly disappointed that my pull-ups have not improved as much as the dips. I usually do them at the end of the workout and my arms just felt like sweaty jello by that point.

OMG I just realized that Lynn's BO Rows are almost up to the weight I was using when I started doing them only a few months ago! She'll be up to that 100 lb bar in no time.

Thanks for the love everyone! As I've mentioned before I really do enjoy the back exercises. I wish I could see the how the muscles look back there, however I am content with Guido's commentary.

Thanks! I do my ATF and regular squats on the Smith Machine because I don't have the control quite yet on my own. I wobble around but don't quite fall down. I guess it makes my numbers a bit less impressive. Gonna go round up the hoo-band, it's time for today's arm workout!

I even had some older guy come up to me and ask if I needed help spotting Guido while he did the bench (Guido had a super good night, check out his new PR's). However, I did see this chick (with her pelvic bones sticking out so far they could injure someone), doing the French press with a 15. She was very proud of herself and proclaimed to her friends that she was a strong woman. In my head I thought, I can do that with a 40!

Comments:
Vacation is over. Overall I had a good time, even though we didn't get to go to the waterpark we had planned on. And our friends punked out on us and only stayed for half the time we had planned on. But the time away from the office was good, like a mental bubble bath, warm and relaxing. I think that spring is trying to overpower winter, which is encouraging. I can't wait to start gardening!! Today's workout was pretty good. The lat pull downs felt so much easier, much smoother today. I did the back extention with a 35 lb. plate, which I discovered is rather awkward to hold. Check out G*Love's journal as well, as there is a new PR in the neighborhood.

So great that you're starting with the lifting so young. It took me until my late thirties to get into it - I could KICK myself for worrying about how I'd get "too big" from lifting... considering I'm thirty pounds lighter than when I was doing 10Ks...

Comments: My triceps are still mad at me from Saturday, even after Guido massaged them yesterday. I hate the new EZ curl bar. It is so hard to hold when doing the Bentover BB Row. I will switch to the Olympic bar next week. Overall, the workout was good. I find trying to hold the 35 pound plate difficult when doing the side/back extension, mostly because it takes over my whole chest and squishes my girls.

Guido

Comments: I've just put up 3 workouts, I slacked in posting over the weekend while at my parent's house. I had a great time over the weekend. Myself, Guido, my parents, my youngest brother and his girlfriend went down to Navy Pier (that would be Chicago), to see the flower and garden show. I don't think Guido enjoyed that part of the outing as much as I did. When it comes to gardening I run the show. For lunch we had deep dish pizza, a staple. It was sooo good. In the afternoon we went to the Museum of Science and Industry to see the Body Worlds exhibit. They had whole bodies, as well as bones and organs, preserved with this injectable plastic. So, the body looks like a pastic model, even though it's from a real person. They had all the organ systems and had normal and diseased organs. It was awesome. Yesterday we went to a wedding reception, more good fun. Oddly, I found myself doing some deep thinking while lifting today. Maybe it was the concentration needed to lift heavy things? I do some of my best thinking while swimming. Perhaps it is the movement of the body that stirs the mind into action.

Workout for 3-31-05

Swimming: 1200 yards

Comments: I realized yesterday that thus far this year I have not reached any of my goals. I have failed to adequately prepare myself for the 2 runs I was supposed to do this spring and therefore have not registered for them. I believe the reason for this is procrastination, which I am told is a result of low self esteem. Why this is I have no idea. Guido is very supportive of me, however in all honesty I am jealous of the gains he's made. He's far more commited to the diet and takes each session in the gym more seriously than I do. He's a naturally gifted athlete who seems to be very good at anything sport he tries. Myself, I labor very hard to be average. So, in an effort to get back on track for this years goals, I hopped in the pool tonight with the Big Shoulders open water swim in mind. The yardage I put in tonight is a drop in the bucket so to speak. But, at least I know what I'm doing in the water. Sometimes I feel like I don't know which end is up at work, or if I'm doing an exercise right at the gym, but I know how to swim. Now if I could quit comparing myslef to every other swimmer I know I'd be in better shape. I suppose I should have made one of my goals for this year to be fearless.

Guido

I hope you take that to heart, love. I know that you have a big ball of potential rolled up inside you, and once you let go of your fears, you'll have no problems reaching it. Just look at the things you've been able to do that are not related to sports. Just apply that drive and ambition and discipline to everything else that you do and there will be no limits to what you can do.

Think of the bumble bee. :)

Comments: Today's workout was done in the new campus rec facility, which I thought would be bigger. I discovered many cardio machines, however little space to do anything with DB's or BB's. That's why the workout was missing some things compared to last week because either the equipment wasn't there, or there was no place to do the exercise. The new rec pool there looks nice.

Soba: Thanks for the food porn. I thought about eating chocolate after seeing it, however then I thought about all the fat and calories in it, so I had a glass of milk instead.

I just want to add that Lynn had a terrific workout last night (except she'll tell you not on her bicep curls, but then I'm having the same problems there). It seems like she had PR's on everything. Made me feel somewhat jealous since I was having an off night. Great job, wifey! :thumbup: :nod: :hello:

Comments: Guido is right. I am frustrated with my Bicep curls. Up until 2 weeks ago I was doing them with the EZ bar, not the Olympic bar. So that change, coupled with fact that I think I'm doing the curls with better form may help to explain why I haven't improved much on that exercise. My hammer curls have improved, so at least I know my biceps haven't run away!

Well this only counts as a workout if yard work counts as working out! Guido and I are either a) crazy, b) experiencing bad karma from a past life, or c) into pain, to think that we can put in a patio by ourselves. I did lots of digging and carrying around retention wall stones and that's just the beginning. I did get some gardening done as well, although I have several kinds of seeds that still need to get in before it gets too warm. I'm definately sore from the yard work, and not looking forward to the back portion of tomorrow's chest/back workout.

Comments: I did the workout on my own tonight. I think Guido was a little too tired. I kept him up late last night. We were talking about our feelings of course, he he he. Overall, everything was fine, challenging and sweaty. After a few months of keeping track of my workouts I've noticed a few small changes as far as my body is concerned. I really haven't lost any weight, but people tell me I look thinner. The only part of my body that has gotten smaller for sure is my chest, and by that I mean my girls are shrinking. Oh well, I guess that's why the push-up bra was invented, right?

If you haven't lost or gained weight, yet your strength has increased like it has in this journal, chances are you put on muscle while losing fat. This would also be why your "girls" could have gotten smaller, since boobies are essentially just fat. Put on more fat and they should be back to what they were before.

Comments: I've been away for awhile! After my family was here last weekend I was out of town for work for several days. Last Monday and Tuesday I did help Guido get the rest of the patio together, so I was lifting something, be it bricks instead of weights! I still have some serious shoveling of all the remaining dirt that is left over. Guido and I did our leg workout yesterday with a former professor of mine who is looking to get into better shape. She couldn't believe how strong Guido is! I think perhaps she thought she was in better shape than she actually is. She seems really motivated though, and I think that once she learn how to do each exercise with good form she'll do really well!

Guido found out through a mutual friend that some nieghbor friends are getting separated. I thought they were avoiding us because we could stand working out with them anymore. They're nice people and all, but he's total whiner at he gym and refuses to do cardio, and she's always skipping exercises because they're "too hard". But we hung out with them anyway, adn I thought she and I were getting to be good friends. Then I didn't hear from her for almost 8 weeks and now I find out about the marital turmoil. I'd really like to just sit down with her and talk the whole thing out, and I know I'll end up crying at some point, but it would be better than this weirdness between us. Eeek.

Comments: I realized that last fall I could only do pull-ups and dips last fall with 115lbs on the assist bar. Now I only have 40 lbs. on the assist bar. Although the last 2 pull-ups I did this evening weren't exactly what I would call pretty. Today was pretty busy at work and I've been over-analyzing some relationship stuff, so I kinda tired to space out a bit tonight while lifting. Not that I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing, instead I was only thinking about lifting heavy things and breathing.

Comments: I was alone again tonight, as Guido was hibernating. It's a good thing I don't need a spotter to do leg work. I had to subsuitute standing calf raises for the usual seated ones because some guy was totally hogging the equipment. I asked if I could work in with him, but he assured me that he only had one set left. So, I went off and did my leg curls and came back. The guy was still there! I did one of the thigh machines and once again when I returned, he was still sitting there. I asked again, and he said he was almost done. Finally, I got frustrated and just used the standing calf raise instead. I know in the pool there is a code of manners that swimmers are supposed to follow. I would think that folks who lift have something similar?

Thanks all. I think I'll try doing squats without the Smith Machine as I normally do. So I can no longer have "newbie" in my signature? What should I change it to? Some of my patients call me "the little girl". My brothers call me Princess Big Butt. One strange thing about today, I did an audio on an inmate from the Ford County Jail this morning. He was wearing the orange jumpsuit, leg shackles, and handcuffs. There were 2 corrections officers in the booth with me while I completed all the necessary testing. The man was very polite to me and nothing eventful happened, the whole situation just seemed kinda funky to me.

Comments: I had to weigh myself yesterday so Guido would know how much weight he had in his lap for those bench dips. I weight only a few pounds less than I did 4 months ago, although my mom did tell me that my legs look less lumpy now than before. I'm going to take that as a compliment. One of my good buds from undergrad stopped by yesterday as well, her younger brother is graduating and she was down to visit with her family. Every time I see this friend of mine I can't believe how tiny she is! She's about my height, 5'4", and weights about 110 pounds, maybe less. She says sometimes she forgets to eat during the day! I'm so used to my girlfriends from swimming, with big shoulders and thighs. My boss told me on Friday that he doesn't think it's attractive for women to be muscular. It's all a matter of opinion I guess.

See, my younger brother's dorm is really close to the gym and the outdoor pool. When my parents were in town on Friday they stopped over to see if the pool was open on the way to my brother's place. My mom commented on all the bikini-clad chicks with skinny arms and legs, and a giant gut hanging over their bottoms. She was so horrified by this, and I found it highly amusing.

Comments: Guido got me an iPod shuffle for my birthday, so now I won't have to listen to the icky music at the gym anymore! It's a fun little gadget. One of the best parts of my birthday weekend was dinner at Cafe Iberico, a great tapas place in Chicago. We had 9 different dishes including octopus. For dessert my friends and wonderful husband had the waiter bring me a banana with carmel sauce and 2 strategically placed scoops of ice cream! People were laughing and my friends took a picture with my food porn. Great fun as always.

Comments: Guido and I also took Peanut on a long walk (45 minutes is long for a chihuahua). Work is going to kick my booty tomorrow, as we have a ton of patients scheduled. And, this weekend while everyone else is having picnics and BBQ's to celebrate Memorial Day I'm going to be helping my parents move out of the house I grew up in. It's a little sad, but I don't really feel like it's my home anymore. I have my own house and my younger brother's girlfriend kinda booted me out of my old room the day after I got married. As you can tell, I'm not bitter about that situation at all!

Guido was doing deads and other stuff and I didn't have anyone to spot me on flat bench, etc. I've been invited to a "toy" party at my sister-in-law's house tomrrow, which I would normally be totally fine with. However, my mother-in-law is also going to be there, and that makes me feel squeamish. I don't relish the idea of discssing the finer points adult toys and the sweet 75 with her present, it ust seems weird to me. Everyone else has just told me to suck it up and stop be so immature about it. We'll see how this one turns out....

Comments: You'll notice a change in the ATF and regualr squats. I did them today without the Smith Machine as I had been doing before, hence the lighter weight. The weekend was ok, although tiring. My parents are not fully moved out of their current house and I'm not sure how long it will be until that happens. The "toy" party was horrible, not so much because of my mother-in-law, but because there were several people who said they were coming and then didn't show, and because one of the guests was totally wasted. When I introduced myself to her, instead of shaking my hand she practically licked my cheek and grabbed my behind. She was awful the entire evening!

Stash: Thanks for the food porn!

hun are those walking lunges you're doing? looking mighty fine lynn!No. We do the step forward-step back kind.

Lynn did great with the BB squats - form was almost perfect right away. I suppose it's helped doing the smith's for so long as far as the motion. She has great relative back strength. Once the stabilizers and CNS get used to balancing a free barbell, she'll go up in weight real quick.

Nice job, dear!

Lynn got "One Hundo!" on the bench. That's awesome. I looked up some of the women's sanctioning body powerlifting records and that's actually a state record for her weight class in some of them.

You make the Guido proud. :)

Comments: The standing calf raises were axed today due to time constraints. It took much longer to get the squatties done today because a mirror in front of 2 squats racks we normally use broke, thus shards of glass were being cleaned off the floor in that area. So, there was only one rack available in the whole gym. I'm still trying to get used to not using the Smith Machine for my squats. The bar just feels weird over my shoulders. We'll give it some time and see what happens.

Guido will help you with the weirdness surrounding the feeling of having a free bar on your shoulders.

Good leg session, squatting looks real impressive.

Comments: I agree that curl jockies should have to wear pink shirts. I hate the color pink. I don't like it on babies, men, women, dogs, anyone! I'm also having a tough time thinking about Hello Kitty right now, as Guido informed me that they make a Hello Kitty vibrator. Hello Kitty is a favorite children's item in my mind, not a bedtime toy.

True. For one, you're married to ME, so you got THAT on her in addition to being equally as sexy :D. Second, she's got a good 45 lbs on you and you're lifting about the same weight as her. That's pretty damn good.

Comments: So Guido and Coco think the Russian chick has nothing on me? She definately has no behind to speak of. I, on the other hand have some junk in the trunk. Anyway... The cardio today was a much needed pick me up. I had a rather lousy day at work and I think I sweated out the bad mood which was stewing inside me. I sweat like crazy when I workout. Today is my parent's 30th wedding anniversary. I plan on suprising them over the weekend with a DQ ice cream cake and champagne. What could be better?
