alright so this is the start of my journey and I figured I should just use this as my journal and share it will all of you.
So the next few months as I prepare for what ever I end up competing in I am going to post from my morning work out, to how much water I drink, to how much sleep I am getting, the struggles I'll see and GET through. What I eat, where I shop prices,EVERYTHING :)
Pictures weekly and all sorts of fun stuff!
Let me know how you learn or grow from what information I may give you :)
so first off today was my first day really working out hitting the gym and eating right!
David (husband) & I hit the gym at about 6:00am
We had to leave from bountiful around 5:30 to get there by 6 because we go all the way to Planet Fitness!
Its cheap and I love it.
So I started out taking a pre-workout called XM+ It's amazing for energy and when you start working out you feel on top of the world! seriously...
So I found this website that has what you should eat and what you should work out daily etc.
It's awesome http://leeapperson.com/figure/dieting.html
Key parts to work out of course for any competition are
So today I started out with Arms, I did 10 reps of each different work out I am sorry I may not have all the names right haha I'll try and get pictures next time
10-Alternate Hammer Curl 15 pound weights
10-Barbell Curls 20 pound weights
10- Bicep Curls - 15 pound weights
10-Alternate Incline Dumbbell Curls 15-pound weights
15-pull up Which I weigh 126 right now :)
10 reps 3X- Over head press at 30 pounds
Then on to Abs
12 minute abs @ planet fitness I do 15-30 reps not just the 12 they recommend
I was lighter on abs today and then jogged 15 minutes and biked 17 minutes :D
Gotta love cardio :)
After my workout I take a Post workout and it's called SmartMix
If you'd like to buy the xm+ or SmartMix Let me know I actually sell this stuff because I love it so much and I can get you it for a really good deal :)

Well where to I go from here I dropped my babe off at work and now I'm writing on here need to go grocery shopping at Costco and Wal-mart..
I'll be back to upload more pictures of what my diet will be made up of :)
and what I'll eat for lunch and dinner
Stay tuned and check back :)
Alright I am back, So grocery shopping is HORRIBLE!
I just hate how rude some people are :/
But I GOT IT DONE :)
cheese and crackers for a snack, love cottage cheese didn't look for any special type.. SILK My new favorite milk ever! chocolate flowered :) probably not the best for me but its my first time shopping for healthy stuff and I was on my own :)
Lemons for my water and to put on salmon
Okay so I have a super SWEET TOOTH! and this is dried fruit so I eat half of one of these when I want candy, Try it for yourself it works like a charm
Never tried these, Never eat cereal but I heard from someone at the gym they are amazing and whole grain with brown sugar which is healthy compared to normal white sugar. I'll let you know how they taste
A friend from work said these were amazing for snacks I tried one before I made lunch they are not very tasty at all! :( would recommend good thing my cousin has a daughter that I am sure loves pop-tarts which is what they are sorta like..
Dinner for my Hubby and I :
So this is our AMAZING DINNER :) Cottage cheese Spinach lightly drizzled Italian dressing and chicken breast Yummmy it was!
Good Night All :)
