Sorry I am a worry now person. Those one legged squats scared me a bit. I have bad balance which I didn’t even know until the orientation at my gym. They have you stand on one foot and then lean forward and touch the carpet and come back up, you are supposed to do that 10 times and I am ashamed to say I could not do it 10 times without putting my other foot down.
I think I am good with my nutrition. Bill Roberts helped me calculate my calories which is a high of 1900.
This is what I have been eating
2 scrambled eggs
1/2 sweet potato
can of tuna
bunch of salad
sugar free pudding
salad (I love green peas)
3 rings of pineapple
pre bed snack
1/2cup cottage cheese
I did a spin class last night, which was fun, and I walk on the treadmill.
This is my lunch, but during lunch I have been trying to take a walk around the parking lot or our building. I do this to get out of the recycled air, and I the vitamin D thing that I heard about in the news.
Thank you for explaining the program.
I am sure I sound like a weak and whiny woman, but it is just that I am new. I will make it a goal to get more comfortable in the free weight area, but in my gym I never see women there, so it will be hard. I will try harder. You probably don’t know the whole mental side of being a woman, worse, a fat woman, and going in to that territory, but I will try.
I liked that the program had pictures so I could see what I should be doing.
I will try this tomorrow after work.
I do cardio after my weights. I usually do about 30-minutes on a treadmill at the highest incline and I try for 3.5. On days when I do a lot of the leg things I cannot go quite that fast. So I am doing cardio at the gym 3x a week. I also try to get to the park and walk on my days off.
To me this isn’t just another Beginner thread. I am a single woman over 40 and I need to do something before I spend the rest of my life alone and unhappy. I am taking this seriously so every post from you people really means a lot to me.
