Ah, these workouts are getting harder! But I think it's because I'm working full-time now, so just getting the workouts in is a challenge. I'm determined to stick with it though. Week 7 was the worst week as far as food goes. On Wednesday (the day before I went to Dallas to visit Cassie and Courtney), I went out to eat and got a big cheeseburger and skipped the gym. In Dallas, I didn't work out, so on Sunday, I had to fit in two workouts (back and the second leg day). Also in Dallas, I really splurged on drinks and food. Saturday night, I shared nachos with Cassie and was dipping mine in queso and sour cream. I still think my body is responding though.
Day 43: Arms + 20 minutes cardio (stair mill, alternating between 60-75)
Day 44: Legs + Abs + 10 minutes cardio (stair mill, alternating between 60-75). This leg workout was a KILLER. The walking barbell "double" lunges were so hard. I had to stop and take a breath after 10 reps. My favorite leg exercise is the barbell leg squats, where you put one leg on a bench behind you while holding a barbell behind your neck and you squat down. This are great for your quads.
Day 46: Shoulders + Abs + 20 min cardio (stair mill, alternating between 60-75)
Day 47/Day 48: Legs & Back (No Cardio or Abs)
I have a hernia (I think) that's been bothering me recently, so I'm not doing abs since Thursday. I'm going to go to the doctor to get it checked asap.
I didn't get photos from Week 1, 3, or 4. I'm so ready to see what's in store for the rest of the program. I just had to start calculating calories for Week 7, so I'll share that with you next week. I keep thinking I will be SO READY come bikini time next summer. :)
