Today is Baby Boy’s 4 month bday! Four months and I am one pound away from being my “pre-baby” weight. Woohoo. I am still seven pounds away from being my “pre-hubby-comes-home-from-Afghanistan” weight, but it’ll get there. For the last two weeks, I’ve been doing Jamie Eason’s Live Fit Trainer. If you’ve never heard of this, you need to check it out. Its for gals and guys. Head over to bodybuilding.com and you’ll find it. She tells you what exercises to do, what days to rest, what to eat, the whole nine yards. I haven’t been following the eating plan to a “t,” but I’m getting as close as I can. I still need extra calories because I’m still nursing Baby Boy. Today was leg day and I literally can barely walk up my stairs. LOVE IT. Here is a glimpse at what I did:
- Leg extension machine, 3×10, 60 lbs
- Wide stance squat, 3×10, 95 lbs
- Barbell walking lunges, 3×10, 40 lb barbell
- One legged barbell deadlift, 3×10, 30 lbs
- Leg curl machine, 3×10, 40 lbs
- Standing calf raises, 3×10, 40 lb barbell
I was lucky that I could walk out of the gym. I almost had to have someone help me carry Baby Boy’s carrier to my car. If you’re curious about this program, I’ll explain more tomorrow in Training Tuesday, or you can just check it out for yourself. I love it because it is all about building muscle, and you control your own weights, so if you don’t want to lift heavy (which I don’t know why you wouldn’t), you don’t have to. Remember ladies, you will not get bulky if you lift heavy. In order to look like a body builder, you have to train and eat like a body builder. Do not let this fear keep you from the sexy, lean muscles that you can have!!!
Stay sweaty, my friends!
