I managed to survive the journey to Katy and back with my car in one piece and running smoothly! WHOOP! Aggies whoop, we don’t “cheer”. DUH! Anywhosit, I prepped all my meals Friday before I left and oh my goodness… My kitchen… You just have to see it for yourself.
Saturday evening, my boyfriend’s family and I celebrated his mother’s birthday, and it was only natural that we had an ice cream cake to end the night. Yes, I managed to resist it (okay, so I stole a tiny bit of icing, but that’s it I swear!). I stuck to my morning cardio on Saturday while I was there. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet with my trainer, but he did just email me asking how my first week went. Shhhhh! He doesn’t know about the icing!
I came back this afternoon and tackled my “mini” leg day from 4 PM To 5:45 PM. Here’s what I took on:
- Front squats 95 lbs 1×5, 105 lbs 1×5, 115 lbs 1×5, 125 lbs 1×2 and repeat in reverse
- Standing calf raises 155 lbs 4×20
- Seated calf raises 125 lbs 6×15
- Hip abductors 70 lbs 6×10
- Hamstring curls 90 lbs 2×8, 100 lbs 2×8
- Walking lunges 60 lbs 4 laps for 20 steps each
I’ve been trying to cram in as much hamstring work as possible during the week because that’s where I think I’m lacking most. I’m definitely going to be feeling it by Tuesday; I’m still feeling Thursday’s work out!
I’ve been stressing out about picking a show and practicing my posing routine and getting a show suit, etc. I practiced posing and walking in my competition heels for 20 minutes earlier tonight. I’m not used to wearing heels frequently, so I’ve got to get in the hang of walking and posing in them comfortably so by the time I get on stage slipping or tripping will be the farthest thing from my mind.
I’m super excited to start seeing changes. I know I’m only a week into the diet and cardio plan, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be excited, right? My man has it in his head that I’m already looking slimmer. He’s so full of it, I know, but I still love him to pieces!
Let me know how your leg day went!
