Jillian Kicks My Butt - Week 8 - Thursday

30 seconds rest between exercises and sets.

barbell squat 3x5x75
barbell calf raise 3x8x75

barbell bench press 3x5x65
dips 3x8xbodyweight

barbell Romanian deadlift 3x5x85
chest supported dumbbell row 3x8x20

Biggest Loser stuff - 40 minutes and 218 calories. I got a cramp in my side halfway through. I don't think I drank enough water beforehand or something. I'm so glad I only have to do this workout four more times!! My motivation for this and Jillian's stuff is pretty much gone.

I made the decision today to change my goal weight from 115 pounds to 120 pounds. I'd really, really like to add some muscle and I think I'd look terrific at 120 pounds. Heck, I don't look so bad at 130. So, I'm going to start paying more attention to body fat percentage and muscle than scale weight.

7:15 AM - apple & cottage cheese

10:20 AM - almonds & mandarin oranges

12:25 PM - chicken salad w/ tomato, green pepper & Tuscan Romano dressing

1:50 PM - homemade protein granola bar; These are so good. I may have trouble limiting myself to 1 per day. They are pretty big and I just ate one and I'm full, but I want another.

6:55 PM - cube steak w/ jasmine rice & broccoli

7:30 PM - protein granola bars; Yes, plural. I knew I couldn't eat just one per day. I have to post my blog, brush my teeth and take my melatonin or I am going to eat the whole batch.

Two cups of coffee and 120 ounces of water.

You're doing awesome Becky - you should be so proud of yourself...something i know I've said a million times before, but it's true. Despite being sick of Jillian and TBL workouts, you're still forging on ahead and getting through them. Your weight loss is AMAZING!!! I hope I see your picture in either Fitness, Self or Shape as a success story. :)
