Hi! I'm new here. I heard about this forum thru Shane who I met thru a friend of mine. I'm 32 years old, 5'1" and my goal is to lose a buttload (no pun intended) of body fat. Oh, I had to say I am married so you wouldn't think Shane was a "playa" hehe. I don't belong to a gym so I'm going to have to make do with my home equipment. I've only been lifting weights for a few years and started my fitness endeavors with Denise Austin.....yowsa!! Did I just say that??!! Please don't hold that against me. I'm following the fitness and nutrition advice of a qualified individual....you know who you are.
Today's workout was 4 sets of supersets....
1. Barbell Squat- 3x10 (I have a bum knee so I'm easing into legs)
Barbell Bent Rows- 3x12
2. Barbell Chest Press- 3x12
Wraparound abs- x20
3. Barbell Static Lunge- 3x10
Barbell Overhead Press- 3x12
4. Barbell Bicep Curls- 3x12
Barbell Lying Tricep Extensions- 3x12
I've been advised to start at 1400 cals for now, most likely to be increased. I got up really late today, so I only managed 4 meals and my cals were too low.
-1/2 low carb bagel
-1 T low fat cream cheese
-2 slices of bacon (how did that get on my plate??)
-1 T stir fry sauce
-low carb protein shake
Totals....920 cals, 27 gm fat (26%), 57 gm carbs (25%), 88 gm prot (38%)
My percentages don't add up to 100%, maybe it's not as accurate when your cals are too low?? Maybe I'm mathematically challenged???
I'm going to try post daily. So "see" ya tomorrow!
