    ** Summer Sizzle **






    My 8 week program to Summer Sizzle!

    I completed a BFL 12 week program last year in November 2001 and have moved on to more intense bb. Recently I have started some Beverly Intl supplements and now will do a full 8 week program on their supplements and exercise program. My problem is sticking to the nutrition, since I'm a SAHM, I am continuously faced with the junk food or snacks my kids eat. I am also a carb-o-holic and choc-o-holic....So hopefully a journal will keep me on track and accountable....

    Stats: 5'2"
    Weight: 113 lbs
    BF: 17-16%
    Goal: 8 weeks to Summer Sizzle! BF 12-14%, some more muscle would be nice!
    Age: 37 years, 38 in June
    Personal: Married to "Armand Assante" look-a-like with 2 kids, ds 6 yrs, dd 4 yrs

    Yummi to an Armand Assante look alike. Mmm mmm.

    As for kids treats and stuff. They don't need em. Get em outta da house. I make all my own muffins and breads. The kids get treat night every Friday night. If they really want (or deserve) one during the week, I can run to the store to get something quick. But no crap in the house or I will get into it. It also keeps their minds, bodies and teeth much healthier. Grapes and bananas and homemade berry muffins and whole grain breads and cut up veggies with homemade dip and cottage cheese and yogourt and sunflower seeds and peanuts in the shell and and and... LOL are so much better. They will get used to it, they don't have a choice

    Your diet looks very good. You'll be amazing in 8 weeks at this rate!

    Thanx for the welcome Princess, CLP, NikeGirl!!!

    It's true CLP about the junk. I try to give 'm healthy food except when I pick 'm up from school I give them something not so healthy, that they like. I like your ideas of these healthy snacks...I will try them. You're right that they will eat them if there is no choice.

    Tuesday Apr 30

    Sleep: Got a full 9 hours sleep last night and could have slept some more!

    Workout: Back/Cardio/Abs today. Did my Chin-ups today again and it felt good! Had a 30 min moderate/HIIT kinda cardio on the elliptical and on to abs. In and Out of the gym in 1 hour and 45 min.

    Weight/Supps: 113 lbs. My weight is down 3 lbs in one day (!!!!) and I must admit I missed one meal yesterday cauz I fell asleep in my dd's bed while I was reading to her at 8 pm!!! So hopefully I didn't loose muscle because of that but I also just started on the full blown Beverly Int'l supplements of which one is called "Lean Out". It increases the utilization of stored fats for energy, sparing glycogen and amino acids. It shifts fuel source towards fat and spares the amino acids/glycogen for muscle building/repair. If you want to improve muscle-to-fat ratio they say. I haven't been drinking more water than usual so that rules out water flushing from increased water intake.

    Back / Abs / mod Cardio 30 min
    1. Chins** 3 sets up to 12 reps - 70lbs assist
    2. Dead Lifts or with compound Shrugs 3 sets 10 reps x 25 lbs db

    5. Straight Arm Pullovers** 3 x 10 - 20 lbs
    6. 10 min Abs

    Wednesday May 1, 2002

    It's May! Yay! Hooray! Summer is on its way!

    Weight:
    Down another 1/2 pound today to 112.5 lbs. :o What's up with that? My diet is 1500 cals which is plenty, but currently the numbers on fitday come out 50/20/30 prot/carb/fat. It was about 90 g carb yesterday maybe more. I had to squeeze in my last meal - Ultra Size Protein shake that has quite a bit of fat in it. Boy, could I feel my upset tummy this morning... I think also because I had 2 tbs Udo's the meal before, so all that fat takes getting used to..

    Bodyfat: Took measurements today and was 17.5% using tapemeasure and calipers according to http://www.linear-software.com/online.html

    Sleep:
    10pm-5am, so 7 hours. Watched "Frontierland" last night on PBS. Quite interesting how they used to live in the 1800s....uggh....you only can take baths once a week in the icy cold river? Brrrr...thank God for modern day conveniences! Went to bed after that.

    Workout:
    Leg/Calves today. No cardio. I could feel my leg quivering on my way home in the car. Every time I pushed the gas pedal, I felt it! My weights are wimpy but I haven't been working legs with the machines at all so I have alot of catching up to do.

    Day 3: Legs / Calves / Abs
    1. Squat* 4 sets x 12 / 10 / 8 / 6 reps - (bar + 40/50/60/70 lbs)
    2. Leg Press** 3 x 10 reps - 180 lbs/180/190
    3. Leg Extension** 3 x 12 reps - 50/50/60
    4. Leg Curls** 3 sets x 10 reps - 50/50/50
    5. Lunge 2 sets x 10 reps - 15/25lbs then Smith 1set x 10rep x (70lbs+bar)
    6. Seated Calf Raise** 4 x 10 reps x 70 lbs (SS #6 and 7 )
    7. Free Standing (no weight) Calf Raises 4 x 25 reps
    8. 3 sets of crunches

    Nutrition:

    Meal #1 (post workout)
    Protein Drink: 2 Scoops Ultra Size and 12-oz water, 1 scoop instant coffee, Splenda
    creatine, glutamine, Ms Power Pak, thyroid pills

    Meal #2
    Ultra Size Pancakes(with sf syrup)
    1 whole egg + 3 egg whites
    1 scoop Ultra Size Protein Powder
    1/3 cup oatmeal
    2 tbs sf syrup
    supps: 2 Lean Out, 3 Ultra 40, 3 Mass Amino

    Meal #3
    1 cup broccoli
    5 oz. chicken
    4 oz. sweet potato
    supps: 2 Lean Out, 3 Ultra 40, 3 Mass Amino


    Meal #4
    Protein Drink: 2 Scoops Ultra Size and 12-oz water, 1 scoop instant coffee, Splenda
    supps: 2 Lean Out, 3 Ultra 40, 3 Mass Amino


    Meal #5
    5 oz. salmon
    1 cup sugar snap peas
    1 tbs Udo's oil
    supps: 2 Lean Out, 3 Ultra 40, 3 Mass Amino

    Your cals are too low!!!!!

    Just my opinion butt you should add a tbsp flax to meals 1 & 4....this will bring your cals up by around 200....minimum! Why are they so low?

    Hmmm... The Ultra Size shake has 240 cals, 8g fat, 10 g carb, 34 g protein. I don't have flax only but Udo's. 1 Tbs has 135 cals, 14g fat. So if I add it to my shakes that will make 22 g fat in meal 1 and 4. Is that too much fat?

    Lina, if you can get some Muscle Provider, try that at night with some heavy cream instead of Udo's. Or give the US one more try, butt with cream not oil!

    Ouch, it's 11:35 am and my tummy still hurts! Teaches me a lesson to not go to bed with my Ultra Size shake sitting there. I'll have to do it in meal 4 around 4pm.

    Weight: Same, 112.5lbs. Upped my cals a bit by using steak today and adding 2 tbs cream to my shake. Emailed Rita for suggestions also for weight loss..

    Sleep: 11pm-8am, so 9 hours. Stayed up to watch "Frontier House" again...Woke up at 5am this morning, got dressed for the gym, got undressed, back into my pj, back in my snuggle bug bed. My tummy was upset, it was raining, so I debated to do it this afternoon when the kids are at school, but I'll take a rest day instead. Let my shoulder heal too,..

    Workout: Rest Day. I like the idea of 1 rest day during the week and 1 on weekends, probably will be Sunday. We'll see what we do next week, I'm still tweaking this...

    My tummy is still bloated and lil' bubbly but will resume normal eating today. Rita said to keep the menu as is since it is too soon to tell. Also, sipping the Ultra slowly should help. OK, I promised myself to give this company my full hearted effort, so that means sticking to the diet. If in 4 weeks things don't work, sigh, gulp, I'll start tweaking. But I'll monitor my weight and bf closely....

    Kids are home today from school, so looking forward doing fun things with them today...if I can get myself off the puter. We'll go and find a birthday present for dh, errands, and treating them to McD's probably. Will have to pack the cooler and prep food then. If I have energy left, we'll head for a nature walk.

    Weight: 113.5lbs feel bloated in tummy.

    Sleep: 10:30pm-4am, so 5.5 hours. Not so good. Woken by my "Dangerous Liason" type recurrent dream where I am the mad woman character Glenn Close...(again)...


    Workout: Shoulder still hurting. My triceps and lats are sore only on the right side. I think I may be using those on Chest/Back days to overcompensate for my right shoulder. Uggh, I feel so weak in this area! Progress not Perfection.

    Day 4: Shoulder / HIIT 30 min
    1. Seated Shoulder Press 3 sets x 12 / 10 / 8 / 6 reps (db 10/12/15/15 lbs) (8/10/12/15 lbs)(8/10/12/15 lbs)
    2. DB or Machine Laterals** (Tempo 4-2-1) 8x8lbs, 8x10lbs, 8x12lbs, added 2 more sets at the end of wo 8x15lbs, 12x12lbs
    3. DB or Cable Bent Laterals** forgot this one, oops! :o no wonder I wasn't tired and went back to laterals, duh!
    4. Front Raises ( Tempo 4-2-1) 8x8lbs, 8x10lbs, 8x12lbs
    5. Upright Rows 3 x 8 – 12 reps 8x15lbs, 8x15lbs, 8x15lbs
    6. Rotary Cuff Exercises 3 x 8-12 reps 8x10lbs, 8x10, 8x10

    OK, ugh, didn't do so well last night. Had a hell of a day with the kids, disaster! The stress and the combination of missing my carbs did me in..OK, after 4 days...I feel it. But instead of good carbs, my meal 4 and 5 yesterday were skipped and were replaced by total junk, sugar and fat! It consisted of 4pm Doritos, 7pm Ribs, 9 pm Oreos & milk! I can feel it this morning, another rumbly tummy

    I'm taking CLP's advice and after this junk food batch is finished, I won't buy anymore for the kids.....Today would be a good day to scout out the health food stores. I have my dd only so no breaking up fights at the stores, ugh!

    I need to find myself an inspirational siggie, reminder....a mantra...

    Weight: 115lbs Hahaha! OK, I see what one night of carbs can do to my weight so I won't panic anymore if I drop like crazy the next day. Plus I haven't been keeping track of my water and felt very thirsty last night but I was too lazy to get water. Water retention and carb junk will do that. Meal plan today will be a repeat of yesterday since I didn't do so hot yesterday.

    Sleep: 11pm-5am, so 6 hours. Had my recurrent dream "Dangerous Liason" again! Second night in a row. Hmmm.. my subconscious is trying to tell me something...jealousy is lurking somewhere....

    Workout: Had an awesome workout! No wonder after the carbs last night, though shitty carbs, I didn't feel tired during the weight session so that's good.

    Water: Will shoot for 1 gallon today

    Day 5: Biceps/ Abs / Light Calves / Light Cardio 20 min

    1. Dumbell Curl* 4 x 12 / 10 / 8 / 6 (8lbs/10lbs/12lbs/15lbs)
    2. Incline DB Curl** 3 x 10 (10lbs/12lbs/12lbs)
    3. Preacher Curl** 3 x 8 (ez bar + 10bs)
    4. Knee ins 1 x 10 / 1x10 / 1x22 (no weight)
    5. Standing Calf Raises Smith-alternate toe in/out/reg 2x10x(90lbs+bar) , 1x10x(100lbs+bar)
    6. Swiss ball crunch 3 x 30 (alternate middle, l.side, r.side)

    Had a good restday yesterday but also a freeday on Sunday. Went out with 2 other families for Brunch and that started the snowball.. Spend the gorgeous Sunday out doing yard work with the kids and hubby. After a hot day and tired day, we were starving and had bagels for dinner and icecream for desert! So this morning, I'm miffed. Need to get back on track. Another promise I have to make to myself is to limit my computer time to 1hour in the morning and 1 hour at night.

    The good news is it's a gorgeous beautiful booming sunny day today! Yay! Love the nice weather! Time to get out those summer clothes....and eventually da dreaded bikini! I'm spending about 1 month with my mom and kids this summer. She lives in the Caribbean on a resort island. She doesn't have internet and barely tv. I don't know if I can survive that!!!

    Went out last night to a girlie night of Bunko. Food, desserts, wine were there. I was so proud of myself for not caving cauz social events are my weakness. Came home and had my last meal of chicken and fat free hot chocolate (20cals). The best part is I won some money! Made my son happy. He likes to win things.

    Went to bed too late 1am to get up at 5am for gym. Will do that in the afternoon today.
