    Post Healthy Hot Mama's Journal

    What better way to motivate you than to humiliate yourself to the world. LOL...Joking. I keep an online blog, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to start a workout journal here also.

    Okay, my goals:

    Lose 30 pounds of fat while gaining muscle. As soon as I completely lean out I will concentrate on building muscle. My ultimate goal is to be 150 pounds of muscle, which would be a hell of a feat considering I am 4'11". The original goal was to just get as lean as possible, but now I am totally addcted to the burn. I want to pack on as much muscle as possible, but doing it 100% natural.

    I am currently doing cardio 7 days a week. I know I am probably overdoing it, but I have a very sedetary job, so I need to get off my butt every day. I am weight training 6 days a week rotating one body part per a day. I was doing low weight and very high reps (25) and now I am going higher weight and lower reps (10-15).

    Post Where I am at Now

    I took a quick pic of me to give a now photo. I won't call it a before because I have been working for a long time. The before pic was me last year at 228 pounds.

    I have my workout routine written out on my laptop. I will grab it tonight and post it. Thanks for asking.

    So this is where I am at today (just came from working out, so disregard hair and face):

    Welcome!

    So you want to be down 30 to 150? You're at 180 now, right? Down from 228? Great work already!

    Like DOMS suggested, post your routine. You'll get lots of free advice (even if you don't want it).

    Best of luck!

    Right now I am at 150 down from 228 (it has been 11 months so far), but I still have a lot of body fat. So I want to lose the fat and gain muscle. In the end I will still be 150, but totally different body composition.

    OK, that makes more sense. I wasn't buying 180 at 4'11" base on that pic.

    HH-mama, welcome to the journals. Awesome job with the progress! People's progress is encouragement to everyone so keep us posted, yeah?

    Wow, if you end up with 150lb of muscle that'll be more than all of me! I'm 135lb I need to get with it and start movin' heavier stuff!

    Has a meal plan been part of your success as well?
    Good luck!

    Welcome fellow shorty J/K. See I can talk I'm only 4'10".

    I'm Tammy, (everyone calls me fitty) Cute huh?

    You've made great progress already. Congratulations. You'll find everyone here is very knowledgeable. We've all been through it all and done it all. Some of us are gaining muscle, some of us are losing fat. You've definitely come to the right place.

    I hope you enjoy your time here and rest assured you're gonna meet some of the most wonderful people here.

    Welcome!
    All the glory to God!

    Thanks for the welcome and support...

    I haven't posted on here in forever. I didn't make it a habit. I have done really well with my workouts and diet though. I need to start writing things down here. I have lost about 10 pounds, but that is while putting on muscle. I will attach a new photo. I need to take the time to get my workout routine written down. I was stagnant for a while and then upped my protein. It has really helped.
