This week will be a mix of morning training by myself and evening training with my husband. In both situations, I will have to break up the cardio and weights, which are supposed to be done together, but I just can not make them both fit together and still keep on schedule. Just another modification that I am making to help me reach my goals instead of giving in. There's always a solution.
Tonight, I will train chest and abs with my husband. The chest workout includes one resistence set, which I've never done before, so I am expecting it to thoroughly kick my butt, and then I still have to do pushups. I am not the biggest fan of them. Not sure if I'll get abs trained tonight, my husband generally skips them and we usually run out of time (the kids are only allowed to be in the child center at the gym for 1.5 hours and we usually train right up until the time limit). At any rate, things are still going very well, and I feel like I am making sufficient progress. Once I get over this energy slump, I'll feel really great. I'll head off any responses about overtraining, while I'm pushing myself pretty hard right now, this energy slump is hormonal, and completely routine.
|In certain lighting, the muscles have even more definition. I'm proud of them all the same!|
|Tip: from the top, I look smaller! I'll have to remember that for the future! I was actually trying to get the line of definition between the delts, but it doesn't translate in the photo and I lost my patience.|
|I don't train my traps, but they grow anyway. This is the first time I've had "pipes" in my life! I might get those arms I've been dreaming of after all!|
