    Default kountroyale's training journal

    So I'll begin my training journal by telling alittle bit about myself. I'm a Florida girl who married her high school sweetheart and we have a beautiful daughter. My husband has always been into weightlifting, me not so much, I did other sports. After we got married, we both got a lot softer than we should have. So we both joined the gym, and i begrudgingly lifted weights with him. After I had my daughter, my brain went a bit off the deep end. I starved myself down to 115lbs of skinny fatness (it wasnt pretty). I realized I wasnt healthy, but the super restriction turned me into a sugar addict, and then a tornado hit our house. Luckily we were safe but i foudn comfort in binge eating and that is the start of my disordered eating patterns. I would binge (mostly peanut butter and chocolate) and then punish myself. I started lifting more but of course could see real results. This went on for a few years, but as time went on i enjoyed lifting even more. Eight months ago i went away for work for a month During that time i vowed to fix myself, i was away from all my stressors and I was gonna succeed. Since that time I have been able to stop this terrible way of living. When returned i looked great and felt great. Even better, i was really lifting for the love of it and i was destroying the weights. I set a goal to do a bikini competition. Soon after i changed my mind and decided i wanted more muscle and wanted figure... but then being the type I am I said "eff it, if I'm gonna do this, I'm gonna do it fully." I am hoping to compete in my first physique competition in August. Through all of this and even set back in my disordered eating progress, I am down to 112lbs and 13% body fat. I am very lucky that my husband is super supportive and a great trainer/ nutritionist. He knows my strengths and weaknesses and can (and does regularly) push me past my roadblocks. Plus he deals with my tempertantrums...diet suck, but I will do what i gotta do!

    Thank you!! One of the biggest struggles is finding women in my area that want to lift with my intensity or even exercise at all! I already feel rejuventated after joining this forum this morning

    So today is my leg day:
    This morning I did 3-10 min intervals on the stair climber. I try to never over-do my cardio as it always makes me too hungry. Between each set I did my abs- sit ups to failure with weight focusing on strengthening my left side, which is my weaker side.
    Tonight:
    Squats-10 sets 4 reps
    Deadlifts (Stiff legged)- 10 sets 4 reps
    Seat & Standing calf raises- 5 sets 4 reps each
    Stationary lunges- 5 sets 4 reps
    Lying hamstring curls- 5 set 4 reps
    Leg extension- 5 sets 4 reps
    Probably will do some hanging leg raises just to help stretch my spine.

    We are doing a 3 day split- 3 days on 1 day off. While the revolving schedule annoys my type A personality (plus having to think of babysitters sometimes) it is the best for my muscle recovery.

    mommybugpose.jpg This is me and my daughter doing a mommy daughter posing session. She wants to win a trophy too! so cute! The hardest thing about being a bodybuilding mom for me is teaching my bug (her nickname) to eat healthy and exercise in a society that wants to eat junk food and be sedentary. And yet at the same time i want her to be a "normal" child, not the wierd kid that can't eat sugar. Every time I turn around there is another holiday and everyone wants to give her sugar or fried boxed food etc. My family actually looks at me as if I'm a bad mother when i say she doesn't need cupcakes or eat chicken nuggets. I know I'm doing right by her and Ultimately my lessons are sinking in. She loves to go to the gym and "workout" in the child care and she loves to show her muscles. She is my motivation to succeed. I want to show my baby what women are capable of!
