    Today began like most others with 30 min of continuous rate (sort of) on the stair climber. I do the fat burn program which changes intensity but i kept is slightly lower and went for a straight 30 min.
    Tonight is Shoulders and Arms
    Standing DB shoulder press: 5 sets of 5
    One Arm cable curl: 5 sets of 5
    One Arm cable tricep extension: 5 sets of 5
    One are rope hammer curls: 5 sets of 5
    One are cable rear delt raises: 5 sets of 5
    One arme bale lateral raises: 5 sets of 5
    ONe arm cable front raises: 5 sets of 5

    Looks like the trainer/husband has me set up on cables tonight...may the odds be ever in my favor!

    Now a musing from the inner thoughts:
    It can be very trying on the to have your husband as your trainer. I dont feel it actually creates tension in our relationship as husband and wife but more makes the trainer- trainee relationship more stressful. On one hand he wants what's best for me but on the other hand its hard for him to tell me no and deal with my reaction, which my reaction is actually the worst part. This was particularly bad during my sugar addiction days. Once the husband figured out he was essentially an enabler he changed his ways. Now he enables me to lift harder and heavier. He is a great nutritionist, although we are still working on fixing my metabolism...just wish brownies were included in the cutting diet I am by no means a good client sometimes, I argue and whine and glare and snort alot but he puts up with my attitude and gets me to succeed. When I look around at other guys training their girls, I realize how lucky I am to have a man that knows what he is doing and values proper form and aesthetics over more/ bigger plates.
    Oh and he has started proof reading my posts because all my typos and misspellings are making his eye twitch

    Morning consisted of 30 min continuous stair climbing
    Tonight will be Chest and Back again
    Pull-up 3 sets to failure
    T-bar rows 5 sets of 5
    Dips 5 sets to almost failure
    Incline press 5 sets of 5
    One armed dumbell rows 5 sets of 5
    Face pulls 5 sets of 5

    At some point I will remember to record the weights that I lift and report them here but I don't always bring my phone in and my brain stops working when I lift. My only thoughts while I lift are "Up".

    After a great rest day today is legs day! My tentative plan, cuz sometimes I switch it up during the workout, is to do 4 sets of everything with the rep scheme of 10-8-6-4
    So here it is in no particular order.
    Squats
    Stiff legged deadlifts (gotta get those nice hamstrings)
    Calf raises standing and seated
    Lunges
    Leg extensions
    Leg curls
