New Shirt!

I got my new shirt today and I am more excited about this shirt than any other shirt that I have ever boughten!

Ohmygosh, it is just the perfect shirt 🙂 I think I saw it on Pinterest or something and I just followed the link and ended up buying it!

So tonight was legs! Woohoo! I get my ‘Will Squat For Peanut Butter’ shirt, on leg day, how perfect is that?! I squated 115 pounds today, I am very proud of myself 🙂

So this week I officially started softball (Varsity!) and my lifting/workouts/push-ups and pull-ups were definitely lacking…. But I do have good reasons. I was just so busy and tired that lifting at 9:30 just didn’t seem like a good idea. Also, I have had elbow problems for as long as I can remember and this week my throwing elbow really started acting up, so I decided not to do Wednesday’s lift. I felt really bad skipping it but I knew that doing curls and rows would not be the best idea with my elbow hurting and all. But I’m icing everyday and hopefully my elbow will get better and I can get back into the swing of things! 🙂

Tomorrow I will most definitely go for a run and get a good hard workout in, I really need it! 🙂

See you tomorrow!

Push-up PR

Hello 🙂

Wednesday’s workout was biceps and back and it went really well! Here’s what I did:

And (I am very proud of myself for this) after that workout I needed to get more push-ups in and I did 60 push-ups in a row! I am so proud of myself! 🙂

Anyway, Thursday I didn’t do a set workout. I had softball for an hour and a half and after that I was exhausted so I decided that would be my workout for the day 🙂

Yesterday, was leg day! (My favorite :)) I squated 105 pounds! I was also very proud of that too! This week was just full of accomplishments for me 🙂 here’s the workout:

You can see that I didn’t actually do the deadlifts….. I decided not to do them because I knew my form wasn’t quite right and I didn’t want to hurt myself. I’m going to learn how to do them properly though! That way next week I can do them 🙂

Today was a really lazy day and I didn’t actually workout…. But I will tomorrow! I think tomorrow I will go for a run, I haven’t run in a while.

Have a great night! 🙂

Arm Workout!

Hello 🙂

Today was quite a busy day for me! I had softball tryouts from 4-6 (which I did very well at :)), then I came home and went for a short 2ish mile run. After that I went down to the basement to get my lifting in for today 🙂

Here’s what I did!

My mom has also started lifting with me and it’s great! 🙂 it’s awesome to have a lifting partner!

I made a delicious protein shake after my workout: one scoop of protein powder, a banana and a fair amount of milk. I don’t really measure hen I make smoothies/shakes… I pretty much just throw everything in a blender and see what happens 🙂

Well, that’s all for tonight! Have a great night everyone 🙂

Four New Workouts!

Hello!

Due to some family events I couldn’t get my leg workout in today, but I will do it tomorrow!

Here is Tuesday’s workout!

I didn’t come up with this workout, I found it on Pinterest! It’s from the Ascent Blog. I really liked it, it was a good quick workout!

Wednesday was biceps and back! My fifth day of lifting! I really really like lifting, something about it makes me feel so powerful 🙂

20130315-225152.jpg

(I really how you can read that :)) I made a little chart on my whiteboard! One column for the exercise, on for the set, one for the reps and another for the weight!

Yesterday’s workout I did come up with! I wasn’t sweating in the beginning but after the second round I was definitely getting a good workout 🙂 here’s what it was:

~ 4 Rounds of:

•20 jumping jacks
•10 push-ups
•15 side lunge into a knee lift twist
•1 minute plank
•1 minute wall sit
•10 SEC REST
•10 pull-ups
•20 V-ups
•10 burpees
•20 SEC REST

I think it took me about a half hour maybe? I wasn’t really keeping track 🙂

Well, those are my workouts for the week! I will do my leg workout tomorrow and share that because I’m sure it’s going to be a good one!

Goodnight everyone! 🙂

Second Lifting Session

Hello all 🙂

Today was my second lifting day and I felt so good! I actually love lifting! I have no idea why I wasn’t doing it before. I think it’s because I didn’t really know how to start or how to properly do it. But now I do and I’m so happy! This may sound strange but just after these two lifting workouts that I’ve done, I feel like I can feel my body getting stronger and it’s so cool! I love it 🙂 Anyway, here’s what today’s lift looked like:

I screen-shotted from Fitocracy again and there are repeats on there; it’s not because I did them twice, it’s just because I couldn’t fit it all on the screen 🙂

Tomorrow, I think I’m going to get up early and run and then workout with my friend in the afternoon! I’ll post the workout! 🙂

Have a wonderful night 🙂

One-Room Workout

Wow, lifting is no joke. I woke up this morning and I could barely move my arms. My shoulders were/are so sore! But honestly it feels great 🙂 I put this workout into this app I have called Fitocracy and I got over 1700 points for it! I thought that was pretty good 🙂
So, I screen-shotted the workout and here it is!

And then, the workout I did today was this

I called it a ‘One-Room Workout’ because, well, it can be done in one room! 🙂

Also, I have done my 100 push-ups and 50 pull-ups and I feel (tired!) but awesome! My shoulders are very sore but I can’t wait to lift again tomorrow!

Have a great night everyone! 🙂

Lifting

Hello everyone!

I am in such a great mood today! Know why? Because I started lifting today! Before I was only doing a little bit of weight training with my 15lb sandbag but today I actually did hardcore lifting and my arms are so dead right now but it feels so good! I think I’m really going to like lifting. I think it was time for a change in my workouts anyway! I will be lifting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and then doing my normal workouts Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Sunday is a rest day. Everyday I will also be doing core and 100 push-ups and 50 pull-ups (throughout the day).

I’m very excited!! I’m doing this for a month and we’ll see how I feel/look then! I’ll post my workout from today and tomorrow’s workout tomorrow!

Goodnight everyone 🙂
