Hallo, Kate again. So this is my battle log. I try to gain a little muscle, accomplish some endurance and stamina - and lose some weight on the way. Currently I weight 64 kg with 1,57 cm height. (I'm really not very tall.) I'll update my weekly journal here with my workouts and progress with improving my eating habits.
 
I would like to add some tables with figures as well, but I couldn't find out, how o add my excel tables. Perhaps I'll post some screenshots.
 
Goals:  I want to accomplish a leaner self. I want to reach 60 kg and build a little muscle. Stamina is also important, because I want to walk home fast without getting out of breath. I want to walk 2.4 km in less than 20 minutes.

  • I want to get leaner. I want to drop weight until I reach 58 kg. [Met on May 21th 2015]
  • I want to gain some muscle and do push-ups and pull-ups. At the moment I can only do kneeling push-ups and never did a pull-up.
  • I want to feel better, have more stamina and respect myself. I want to like my own body and feel more sexy.
  • I want to accomplish healthy eating habits without counting calories.
  • I want to train my fencing skills until August for our regular community meeting.

Summary for January:
I tried to eat a little healthier. Picked up some fruits for breakfast and ate smaller portion. And I did a lot of cardio. I cycled about three hours with the stationary bike, ran 20 minutes and walked for 160 kilometers. I also tried to start again with my bodyweight and strength training with my dumbbells, which I had dropped in October.

Summary for February
 
I started three challenges in February. 30 Days body weight squats (which I dropped after 15 days), 30 days plank challenge (which I dropped after 15 days as well). I was able to do a two minute plank at the end of the challenge. Now I'm back to one minute. And then I started a cycling challenge and went third place out of 96. Jay! I also continues my bodyweight and strength training.

My first week:

 

Sunday, March 1st, 2015

I completed my Flat Belly Workout again. Had to reduce the sit-ups and crunches a little. Then I did Steves Beginners' Body Weight circuit three times. On the next day I realized, I should split these exercise on two days. Had DOMS in my belly region.

 

 

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Today I walked 14 kilometers. But I want walk this path again. Didn't enjoy the scenery much.

For dinner I prepared a vegan chili, which should last for about four days. And I tried out cooking a potato in the microwave.

 

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

I did my Flat Belly Workout again and walked for almost 7 km.

 

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

I did the Beginners' circuit again for 3 times. Perhaps I'll be able to do more reps next week.

 

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

The scale seems to trick me. It went up again. I realized that I'm losing weight with excessive cardio and gain weight when I continue my strength training. ;(

Flat Belly workout today. That wasn't my best form today. Almost quit the bicycles half was. And during the second set of leg raises my hip bone was making funny noises. Oh, and I walked 6 km today.

 

Friday, March 6th, 2015

Today I completed my Thread for the challenge. I set myself some nice goals. Then I tried to train a little with my sword. Although it only weights 1,5kg (I thought it was more), my shoulder ached after 15 minutes. Then I repeated the Beginners' Body Weight Strength Circuit again for three times.

My workouts:

At the moment I try to strengthen my abs and stick to some full body exercises. Usually I get my workouts from somewhere in the internet. I don't make them up myself. For example the "Flat Belly workout" is from somewhere in Back on Pointe. I love the workpouts there, because they don't need much equipment and beginners can handle them. My second workout for this week is Steve's Beginner Body Weight Circuit - I think he should call it Beginners' Strength Circuit, because of the dumbbell Rows ^^

 

Flat Belly Workout

  • Jumping Jacks 50
  • Crunches 40 (instead I do 15 sit-ups and 5 crunches this week, because I easily get DOMS from bending to much.)
  • Body Weight Squats 50
  • Flat Streight Leg Raise 50
  • Jumping Jacks 40
  • Bycicle Crunches 20
  • Body Weight Sqiats 30
  • Flat Streight Leg Raises 40
So far I had a real good week. And now I want to head out a little and get some Sword Training done. Have a nice Weekend!

Yours' Kate

 Kneeling Push-Up 10 reps

 Dumbbell Lunges 3 kg x 20 reps

 One-Arm Dumbbell Row 5 kg x 10 reps
