Video Blog. . . I tried.

I recorded a little video blog and I tried to upload it to YouTube however, my computer/internet is soooooo slow that it was saying it was going to take 285 minutes to upload my 30 second blog!!! I will try to figure out how to remedy this problem and video blog one of these days.

I did Back and Legs and Ab Ripper tonight. It was a late workout for me, but I just had other things I did at my usual workout time. Luckily for me Bryan worked late and I didn't have to compete for the T.V.

Time for some Chocolate Milk :)

2 tickets to the show!

I am starting to feel the urge to say to people. . ."I have 2 tickets to the gun show" :) Today was back and biceps. I can feel the burn with my weights on most of the workouts but some of them I just need more weight. The chick in the video pretty much uses 12 lbs, so I think I could go to that or just really push some size and go with 15 lbs. I am confident I could use them in at least 4 of the bicep workouts and get along with my 10 lbs for the others. I am going to go hop in the shower to wash off all my sweat from my hard work! THEN I get my chocolate milk~

Leaving The Ground

Today was Plyometrics. . .I have done this workout now SEVERAL times and I think by far it's the hardest but it's also giving me some good results! It's pretty much lunges and squats which are all about getting your feet off the ground. I barely make it through but one nice thing is I can look forward to drinking a glass of chocolate milk as my recovery drink :)

Week 6 Day 1

Well, I must say. . .this week's photo has just given me a TON of motivation! I'm so happy that FINALLY I think I see some real results~ I am in the search for some new weights. I think I will buy some 15 lb dumbells to increase my muscle bulk and results. I feel like the ones I have are good, but I am getting more strength I need to bring it a little more :)
Week 6  Day 1 pictures!!

See the Results?

Yoga with a little improvement

I am just having to really struggle through Yoga X. I have not mastered very many moves or built the stamina to complete the 90 minute DVD. However, I give it my best and each time I get a little stronger, a little more flexible and can go a little farther. . .I am hoping to be able to do the whole 90 minutes in the next couple of weeks! One thing I notice is my prograf tremors when I do Yoga. Holding and posing causes a lot of muscles to go crazy with tremors, I fall and I get back into the pose and I try again.

Did my Best and forgot the Rest~

Back and Biceps

Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE sculpted biceps? Not just on men, but I think a nice toned arm on a woman is so beautiful. Well, I am on my way to having just that. . .beautifully sculpted arms. Biceps have been something I have always wanted. I HATED having skinny little CF arms and Skinny little CF legs which pre-transplant is hard to get rid of especially cuz our bodies tend to be wider and thicker than pretty much the rest of our bodies. haha! I think I may finally escape the CF look, thanks to my transplant and a little hard work building and sculpting my new found body weight!!
These are the weights I currently use, however it won't be long before I will need to UP my weights. These are around 8-10 lbs. . .I need a set that goes up to around 25 lbs probably :) I am planning on being able to curl at least that by the time I am done!!
Week 5 Day 3 done. . . Hooray

Sore. . .

I am so very sore today :) It was hard to put my workout DVD in today. . .I could have come up with a dozen reasons why I "couldn't" do it today, but I am not about to fizzle out. Once I skip I know It will be that much harder to keep going. So today I sucked it up and I did Plyometrics. My face was soooo red/flushed afterward. I think I was most definitely in my target heart rate zone. haha. Nothing like a good hard workout to get the blood flowing to my face! One day closer to my goal. One day closer to completing P90X!!

Week 5 Day 1

So I have completed my first 3 weeks of solid workouts, my "rest' or 4th week is done and Now it's Week 5 DAY ONE: So yep, you guessed it PHOTO TIME! I decided to add a little flex pic in there just to show off, however, I am not very good at flexing and my I usually just end up pulling a funny face like I am constipated or something. hahaha. I did Chest, Shoulders & Triceps. . .and the workout got tougher than week 1-3. WOW, I am not going to be able to move my arms tomorrow~ YIPPEE!!

Bryan Measured my Biceps for me and flexed they were like 9.5 inches, not too shabby

Kenpo. . . .cuz I have to..

When I said I was going to complete P90X is signed up for all of it. In order to do that I have to force my way through Kenpo X and Yoga X because those two are the ones I DREAD. They're just frustrating and so I have to dig deep and complete them.  BUT I got through it tonight and tomorrow is Stretch I think? I HOPE :)

Core Synergistic

I am exhausted. . . core synergistic is TOUGH. I am sweating and my core is going to hurt tomorrow (hopefully).  I am now enjoying my recovery drink (chocolate milk).  I didn't think Core Synergistic was going to be so hard. I guess it showed me I shouldn't underestimate it :)

Week 4 . . . "rest week"

It's not technically a "rest week" but the workout mainly consists of Stretch X, Kenpo X and Yoga along with some Core Synergistic. It's a good week for this because I am crazy busy at the Casting Office every day this week including Saturday. So I have decided to hold off pictures this week and I will start up with photo's week 5 day 1. I will probably barely fit in much of anything including blogging this week. However, I will be blogging about my week every couple of days or all at once in one blog at the end of the week.

I am getting my upper body workout every day or so with some pole fitness :) Gotta keep exercise fun and enjoyable!

Rest Day

It is my Rest Day of week 3 which marks my last day of week 3 :) I will be posting a picture tomorrow. . .and although the picture may not capture much change, believe me I can definitely see it. My stomach is flatter, firmer and more sculpted!! My legs are stronger and firmer and my arms have significant muscle definition. If you are NOT motivated yet to start a this or another workout program yet, in another 3 weeks YOU WILL :) If I keep improving at this pace I know I will be very happy with my end results and all the hard work, time and commitment I put into this.

End of Week 3

It's officially my last day of WEEK 3!! Tomorrow is my rest day and Monday will be PICTURE day :) I am working my body a little hard now cuz I have two great workouts now!

Today I did Stretch X and next week is a "REST" week, but not really. . . .There is still an exercise regimen each and every day, just not any weights. Kinda gives my muscles a break (I hope)

I think I might DIE

As if these workouts aren't hard enough. . . .I had to do it in my apartment where my AC is apparently NOT WORKING! I turned it on and my apartment actually got 2 degrees warmer. . .needless to say I am very bugged about it but I didn't let it stop me.  I did LEGS and BACK  today and finished off with AB RIPPER. Yeah, I am sweaty and exhausted, at least I know I get to go grab some Chocolate Milk now :) Mmmmmmm

Jumping for joy? Well, not exactly. . .jumping cuz I did Plyometrics which includes TONS of jumping. Getting both feet off the ground. Let's not leave out that it also requires about 100 lunges and squats then adds jumping to those for about an hour!!!! Yeah, it's a tough workout to get through. . . .but I'm one day closer to competing my transformation :)

Finally!!! I got the X Pole I have been wanting for like a year now! I got a great deal on this. It's a Killer Workout. . . .if you have never tried it, you won't believe how sore you are the next day. You can search to see if there is a pole fitness class in your area and take a beginner class. I took one and have been hooked every since. It's a Shoulder and Arm workout that is amazing and FUN at the same time. I got this from a woman here local who was selling it. It is spinning and static and I got it for $150. They retail for around $369 + $40 shipping. Yeah, I'm very happy with the deal I got.

I have to do my P90X workout tonight still. I have been a little distracted and my arms and shoulders already hurt. LOL. I will still fit in my workout. It's Plyometrics tonight. UGH

Week 3 day 1: PICTURE

Yep today was week 3 day 1. I worked shoulders and arms cuz whoops, it was actually chest and back day so Wed. I will flip flop and do chest and back. Oh well. My muscles in my arms are getting bigger and firmer, I am on my way to sexier arms and slowly but surely a sexier backside and a 6 pack :)

Week 3 Day 1 pictures
I am starting to see some muscle tone and some firmness in my legs and butt. WHOOHOO! My abs/core are getting a little thinner with some definition through my sides. Little by little right?

Have I mentioned I Hate It?

I dread Kenpo X . . . . if you haven't noticed I don't like the Yoga X either, but I think the YOGA I might be able to get used to. I think the kenpo is hard for me because I took years of a Karate form that is quite a bit different than Kenpo and although I realize this is for aerobic purpose only, I just don't care for it. I do it, but I don't have to love it :) I am thinking since I actually take a 'rest day' and don't workout on Sunday I might just do X Stretch on Kenpo day.  I REALLY like the Stretch workout.

Bringing it!!

I am a woman of my word and I gave myself a "free" day yesterday since I literally felt terrible. I knew I would be up to it today. In fact I did dishes, organized my spare room (prepping it for my pole) and put up some pictures that I have not got around to doing since the move. I actually wanted to talk myself out of working out but like I said if I just get as far as putting on my workout clothes, I find my motivation. Today felt great, no it felt Intense and it burned. . . .but it felt great :)  Only a few more days and Monday will be another Photo Post!! Monday will be day one of week three!!

I'm a P90X Machine!!!!
