Hello Lovelies, long time no talk ❤️
I am down to 127.0 lbs as of this afternoon. I haven't been going to the gym lately because we are getting ready to move back to the Midwest! We just bought our first house, and my husband and I are both starting new jobs next month! It's all very very exciting! Sorry for the lack of posts, but I hope you're all doing well and if you aren't I hope your burdens lighten ❤️

Good Morning Lovelies ✨
I am currently in bed, ready to sleep but remembered I didn't post after the gym.
Last night I made chicken parm and a bourbon street chicken inspired stir fry thing. Tonight in going to break down the 5 lb pork loin I got on sale and maybe cook up some pork chops with mashed potatoes and green beans.
Here's my food log for today:
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Like I said in a previous post, I didn't track every ingredient because that's too much work. So my supper also had a brown sugar bourbon marinade, soy sauce, cornstarch, and a little oil, but I'm really not too concerned about calories, just some of my macros.
I hit my protein and fiber goals, which are what I am focusing on tracking.
Today was a lower body day (and my chest is still a little sore from my upper body day last week) but I didn't want to always do the same workout, so I picked some different exercises to mix in. I think it's a good idea to have at least 2 different routines so I make sure I can get alllll the muscles targeted at some point.
Tumblr media
Treadmill: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00, 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00, 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00
Leg Press: 8/90, 8/90, 8/90
Calf Press: 15/90, 15/90, 15/90
Hip Adduction: 8/60, 8/60, 8/60
Hip Abduction: 8/60, 8/60, 8/60
Kettlebell Swings: 15/20, 15/20, 15/20
Weight Plate Hip Thrust w/ Bench: 8/25, 8/25, 8/25
Leg Raises: 20, 15, 10
Straight Leg Alternating Toe Touches: 20, 15, 10
For the leg press and calf press, I've decided I don't trust the resistance that's written on the machine because it just doesn't seem right (167 lbs). So instead I'm just writing the weight of the plates I added so I can track it more accurately.
My legs aren't nearly as tired today as they were after the last leg workout I did, so I think this doesn't work me quite as hard as the other one did. I think that's probably a good thing so I can still work my legs without almost overworking them every single time I have a lower body day. Still haven't figured out what I want to do tonight for my second upper body day routine but I'll make a post tomorrow morning and you'll find out what I did!
I hope y'all have a good day and that you don't hit any red lights on your way home from work (or wherever you go today!) ✨

MY ARMS ARE NOOOOOOOOODLES.
NOODLES.
And my ass is sore from leg day yesterday.
All of the oof.
Anyway, I'm frustrated as hell at the Lose It! App rn because it didn't add my workout calories into the counter up top on the diary but it DOES show the calories at the bottom 🙄 and I burned hella calories yesterday.
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
As you can see, it says I earned a bonus 1299 calories but it says zero up top. And it's only for yesterday too. Today's calories are already on the per the projected burn 🙄🙄
Whatever, doesn't matter, just a bit irritating.
Anyway, the reason for my NOOOOOODLES:
Tumblr media
Treadmill: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00, 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00, 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00

Tricep Extensions: 8/20, 8/20, 8/20
Overhead Dumbbell Press: 6/20's, 6/20's, 4/20's
Alternating Curls: 6/15's, 6/15's, 6/15's
Bench Tricep Dips: 12, 12, 12
Seated Cable Row: 8/40, 8/40, 8/40
Back Extension Machine: 6/100, 6/100, 6/100
Rear Delt Fly: 8/40, 8/40, 8/40
Knee Push Ups: 10, 5, 3
Alright, now that I'm done eating, me and my noodle arms are gonna shower and go to bed. I hope y'all have a wonderful Friday!!

(Not me realizing almost 18 hours later that I never actually posted this last night)
Hi hey hello I haven't posted in like a month because I haven't been to the gym or tracking calories for like a month 😅
Good news is I've been maintaining at right around 130 lbs this whole time, except this week it's gone up a little because I've been munching on allll of the sweets and barely even reaching 5000 steps a day (I've been getting like 2000 on the days I don't work. Whoops!)
I think I'm gonna be a little more lazy with the tracking, because I'm not really trying to lose anymore, just not gain. And let me tell you, weighing out every portion of the meals I prep to make sure they're all even is sooo much work and not worth it for me at this point (100% worth it when I was losing though!)
Tumblr media Tumblr media
I also have been looking at my calorie burn on my cardio days compared to my lifting days and honestly I burn more on my lifting days, and I prefer lifting, so I'm just gonna cut those out.
Instead, I'm going to do upper/lower splits. And I couldn't decide which to start with so I asked one of my friends and she told me to do a lower body day, so that's what I did!
Tumblr media
Treadmill: 0.125/3.0/1.0/2:30, 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00, 0.125/3.0/1.0/2:30
Squats: 10/25, 6/140, 6/140, 6/140
Stiff Leg Deadlifts: 8/60, 8/60, 8/60
Standing Calf Raises: 12/75, 12/75, 12/75
Curtsy Lunges: 10 (per side)/30, 10/30, 10/30
Hip Adduction: 8/60, 8/60, 8/60
Hip Abduction: 8/60, 8/60, 8/60
Twist Ups: 15 (per side), 10, 5
Plank Knee Twists: 10 (per side), 10, 10
And now my legs feel like jello, so tomorrow will be fun.
I hope y'all have a lovely day!

Well Lovelies, I've learned that if I don't start writing my post at the gym, I just won't write one 😂
So anyway, I weighed in today at 129.4 lbs. I'm starting to see glimpses of abs in the mirror, and that excites me a lot. My bridesmaid dress for my friend's wedding came in last week and it's got a really exposed back so I'm upping the amount of back exercises that I'm doing so that I can look ripped in the photos 😂
I got new shoes recently and decided to wear them today, since my old ones have a massive spot of black ink on them from the last time I was at the gym (I don't even know where it came from? My pen is pink and I didn't even have it with me at the time???) and I was soaking them in oxyclean.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Treadmill:0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00, 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00, 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00

Straight Leg Deadlifts: 8/60, 8/60, 8/60
Bench Press: 10/25, 7/80, 7/80, 7/80
Rear Delt Fly: 8/30, 8/30, 8/30
Calf Raises: 14/140, 14/140, 14/140
Lat Pulldowns: 8/80, 8/80, 8/80
Rope Tricep Pressdowns: 6/35, 6/30, 6/30
Supermans: 10, 10, 10
Plank Twists: 20, 20, 20
Russian Twists: 50, 50, 50
Got home and didn't know what to eat since I didn't go grocery shopping today, so I snagged the pantry cookbook I bought from one of my favorite youtubers and decided I'd make shrimp fried rice; which was not the recipe in her Cookbook that I was looking at. I was looking at a quick stir fry but my frozen veggies leaned more toward fried rice than stir fry, so I did that since I had the stuff I needed for it. It turned out pretty tasty considering I didn't actually use her recipe and just kinda threw some sauces in there 😅
I am finishing eating and waiting for my husband to wake up so I can drive him to work (his car has a flat that can't be fixed til Thursday).
I hope you all have a lovely day! ✨

Yo hey sup y'all
I definitely have been to the gym since posting last butttttt I was lazy and didn't post about it? But I am posting today!
Tumblr media
Treadmill: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00, 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00, 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00

My hamstrings are sore from the deadlifts. Also I got home and made 7 servings of spaghetti with meatballs and cheesy garlic bread.
I ate like 2,400+ calories today because I binged on McDonald's for my first meal because I had an interview today for a job I really want and I feel like it didn't go well so I ate my feelings in the form of cheeseburgers, fries, regular Dr pepper, and a milkshake with oreo bits added in 😅
I'll get back on track tomorrow, right now I need to go to bed. So goodnight y'all, have a good day!!

Good Morning Lovelies ✨
I'm sore af right now. I went to the gym yesterday but then didn't post about it because I was focusing on cooking after and just forgot to. But it was a lifting day and I did a little extra ab stuff at the end! I'm too lazy to type it out though, so if you want to read the exercises and weight (I increased weight on a few exercises) you'll have to look at the pictures.
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
So there's that. And today was a cardio day. I was planning on using the elliptical but one of the other women that works out at 2am was on one, and I try to avoid other people at all costs at the gym, so I ended up staying on the treadmill after my warmup walk-which ended up being a TERRIBLE idea because she got on the one directly in front of me so I couldn't watch myself in the mirror!!! Rude!!!!!
The intervals I did look complicated when they're typed out, so I'm going to space it out as much as I can so that it makes sense.
Walk: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00
Run: 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00
W: 0.125/3.0/1.0/2:30
R: 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00
W: 0.125/3.0/1.0/2:30
R: 0.25/6.0/1.0/2:30, 0.25/5.5/1.0/2:45
W: 0.125/3.0/1.0/2:30
R: 0.5/5.5/1.0/5:30
W: 0.375/3.0/1.0/7:15
So yeah that was that and my food just finished cooking soooo I'm gonna eat now. Hope y'all have a good day (my heart goes out to those in Ukraine right now, sending good vibes and hoping for the best outcome and the avoidance of WWIII)

Hey y'all!
I'm getting ready for bed but I wanted to make a post today.
I weighed in at 129.6 lbs when I woke up today! (Yay!) And it was a cardio day at the gym.
Walking: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00
Elliptical: 15:00/lvl 10, 15:00/lvl 13, 15:00/lvl 10 - 45:00/3.5 mi
Walking: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00
So I wasn't planning on going for 45 minutes on the elliptical, but my watch wasn't tracking my heart rate correctly for the first 10 minutes or so, and my work will refund my gym membership if I have 75 workouts logged in our Vitality app, and I have my Garmin connected to Vitality so I wanted to get this workout to count. My legs are gonna hate me tonight though 😅
I cooked another garlic white sauce flatbread pizza thing but I also added chicken to it to bump up the protein. And I did not cook again after the gym because I didn't want to wake up my husband and the thing I wanted to cook required me pounding chicken breasts to make them thinner. Soooo didn't cook.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Also had a slice of the Boston Creme Cake my husband bought us for Valentine's Day 😍
I love Boston creme cake so much
Alright, time to go take my vitamins and go to bed so I'm not exhausted for work tonight.
Have a good day Lovelies! ✨

Goooood Morning Lovelies ✨
I just took all my vitamins and got comfy in bed so I am readyyy to sleep.
Went to the gym for a lifting day, felt pretty strong... And then I saw a chick that was ripped af and I got intimidated. I wanna be her friend she looks so cool.
Anyway, here is my workout stuff:
Tumblr media
Treadmill: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00, 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00, 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00
Squats: 10/25, 8/125, 8/125, 8/125
Bench Press: 10/25, 7/75, 7/75, 7/75
Seated Calf Extensions: 13/120, 13/120, 13/120
Lat Pulldowns: 7/80, 7/80, 7/80
Tricep Pressdowns: 8/30, 8/30, 8/30
Supermans: 10, 10, 10
Up Up Down Downs (Plank Up Downs?): 20, 20, 20
Russian Twists: 50, 50, 50
Also good news! The cheeky old guy at the gym that I haven't seen for like 4+ months came in while I was stretching at the end, so he's still around!
I cooked ribeye steak, baked potato, and roasted carrots for the Valentine's Day dinner with my husband ❤️ it was delicious. Then after the gym I cooked some jalapeño popper pork burgers with oven baked potato wedges. It had me make my own quick pickled jalapeños. It was pretty good, and now I know how to make stuffed burgers, but I'm not sure if I'll make it again.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
I'm going to try to remember to post a weight update after I wake up, or at least change my about section haha
Goodnight y'all! I hope you have a good day!

Hey hello hi lovelies✨
Weighed in today at 132.0 lbs.
I just finished eating after the gym but I'm still feeling a little hungry so we'll see what else I end up eating today. For now though, here is the food log:
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
The Garlicky Flatbread was delicious, and would be great with shredded chicken added to it. And the Thai Chili Tacos were just the right amount of tangy and sweet (I added extra Thai chili sauce to the meat mixture because I meal prep and I knew the sauce was going to soak into the meat a lot). Also I only ate one of the flatbreads, each one was a serving and I made the other for my husband. 🥰
Today was a cardio day at the gym and my legs were sore from yesterday so I picked the rowing machine to give my upper body a bit more of a workout.
Treadmill: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00
Rowing Machine: 5200m/Lvl 10/30:00
Treadmill: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:0
Next time I do this machine I think I'm gonna try for 5500m. If I remember to anyway lol. I haven't done the row machine since I was in college, but I do still enjoy it. I feel like my posture was really bad though so that's another thing I need to work on.
Anyway, I'm pretty tired and want to get this posted before I accidentally fall asleep so have a great day!!

Oh also I weighed in at 132.6 yesterday evening after I woke up. Forgot to say that in my post and I don't want to figure out a way to intigrate it in there now that I've already posted. Whoops 🤷🏼‍♀️

My watch died 7 and a half minutes into my lifting session today 😭 I didn't even know the battery was low 😭😭😭
It's really been almost a month since I was last at the gym. Between being lazy, going on vacation, and quarantining afterwards, I didn't get near as much lifting done as I would've liked to in the last month. So I guess today marks the beginning of a new month to start fresh?
I got my covid booster yesterday morning after work and was fully expecting it to knock me on my ass, because the first two shots had me sleeping for 23 hours (that's not an exaggeration. I actually slept that long) afterwards. But I only slept for about 9 hours today, and I imagine some of that has to do with how exhausted I was from work this weekend.
I haven't been tracking my food because I made a beef stew and didn't weigh out the ingredients as I was making it, which is a rookie move but I was just trying to get it done quickly at the time because I didn't feel like cooking 😅 also my brain won't allow me to just pick something that "might be close" in the Lose It app because the calories can vary so widely. So clearly my better option was to just not track at all 🤦🏼‍♀️
And, since my watch died so quickly into my workout, I don't have that neat little human chart to show what muscles I worked today. I can tell you what I did though!
Walking/Jogging: 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00, 0.5/6.0/1.0/5:00, 0.25/3.0/1.0/5:00
Squats: 10/25, 6/125, 6/125, 6/125
Bench Press: 10/25, 7/75, 7/75, 7/75
Calf Press: 12/257, 12/257, 12/257
Lat Pulldowns: 8/70, 8/70, 8/70
Rope Pressdowns: 6/30, 6/30, 6/30
Supermans: 10, 10, 10
Russian Twists: 50, 50, 50
I went a little lighter than normal on my arms because my injection site is making my arm sore and I didn't want to hurt myself but I went normal on my legs since I'm not having any issues there.
Note I need to do some meal prep. I'm thinking curry chicken with broccoli and rice and maybe bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with baked potatoes and green beans? I'm trying not to go shopping this week so I can use up what we have in our freezer since I went a little overboard on groceries after getting back from our vacation.
I should probably get started if I'm gonna cook today. I hope y'all have a lovely day!!

Y'all ever get back from vacation and need a vacation to de-stress from your vacation?
I loved seeing all our friends and going to Universal Studios was super fun but the one unfortunate part was the food. Everywhere we ate (save for Three Broomsticks, that place was good) was SOOOOO subpar. And expensive. 😭 We got home and I made spaghetti with garlic knots and honestly that was so much better than 90% of the food we had there. AND I COULDN'T FIND FUNNEL CAKES. WHAT KIND OOF AMUSEMENT PARK DOESN'T HAVE FUNNEL CAKES???
Anyway, I'm up to 135 lbs now after that little trip, my sleep schedule is wayyy off, and I'm hungry constantly lol
Here's hoping I can just drink a shit ton of water (catch me very dehydrated lol) and get rid of the bloat since my body will hopefully chill with the water retention.
I made chili too, but I don't want chili or spaghetti for lunch, so I'm gonna go figure out something to eat cuz my snack of grapes isn't doing enough. Bye!!

Hey y'all
No gym this past week, and I haven't been logging my food. In the past 8 days, I've worked 6 of them doing 12 hour shifts due to staffing issues. I'm exhausted, but I'm ready for my paycheck next week lol
So that's why I haven't posted in a minute 🤷🏼‍♀️
I missed one single day of getting my steps in too 🙃 but here's the stats of that
