New to lifting and forums so I hope I’m doing this right.
A little background on me: I’ve always been slender and somewhat athletic when I was younger. Life, work, marriage, mothering and I’ve just kind of let myself go over the past few years and became a skinny fat person. My husband, over the past three years, has been inspiring with 130+ lb weight loss and body transformation. It’s time for me to get off my butt and make changes too.
Weight: highest 172, current 165
We are on week 2 of clean eating and already seeing positive results–feeling better, loss of retained water weight, better mood, etc. I’m on Week 1 of Cycle 1 of 5/3/1. I am very new to lifting and this is my introduction. 5/3/1 makes sense to me and is easy for me to follow as a beginner.
Military Press: 50
Last night’s workout:
15x15 for 2 sets
bodyweight x 10 for 2 sets
I had a rough weekend with migraines and was pretty fatigued last night during my workout. I was gassed by the end, but this morning I feel like I could have pushed myself a bit harder. Felt great after the workout though.
Looking forward to logging here for the input and accountability.
