Here are my original goals and here is how I'm doing:
- cardio miles: at least 3 miles/day, 6 days/week = 78 miles/53.5 miles
- weight train: 3 days/week = 15 days/7 days
- calories: stay between 1300 - 1600
- water: at least 72 oz/day = 2160 oz./1218 oz.
- weight: lose 6+ lbs. = -1.5 lbs. week/-0.8 lbs. week
Last night at the gym... I found a new love! No, I'm not cheating on Anthony, but I fell in love with this:
The assisted pull-up/dip machine!!
It's basically a pull-up/dip machine that lets you choose how much weight to minus off from your body weight so you can build up your strength until you're able to do unassisted pull-ups/dips.
I've always eyed out the machines at the gym because I am obsessed with being able to do one perfect-form pull-up! It's been years since I've been able to and it would be a huge accomplishment (and an awesome workout!) if I can start incorporating these into my weight training routines. Anyway, I've always been too scared to try them at the gym because all the machines are located in the area of the gym which I call "the big boy" area... you know, the part of the gym were only guys tend to workout. Well last night it was pretty empty so Anthony and I tried them and I'm in love!
I didn't have the chance to spend a lot of time on the machines because we were actually on our way out of the gym but I can't wait to get back on the assisted machine tomorrow!
Gorgeous back muscles and tapered lats, HERE I COME!!
