Takniteasy's Log (Finally!)


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Takniteasy's Log (Finally!) within the Women's Fitness (Female Bodybuilding and Training) category.

Excerpt: I have thought about this for a very long time and figured it was about time to begin my own log in order to become more accountable and hopefully accomplish the weight/bodyfat loss that is necessary to (1) ensure good health as I age, (2) help me regain my self esteem regarding my physical appearance and, (3) fit back into my clothes! My stats are as follows: Age: 42 Wt: 137 lbs Ht: 5’1” BF%: Unknown at this time – would guess around 29% if not higher My goals are to drop 10-15

    Smile Takniteasy's Log (Finally!)

    I have thought about this for a very long time and figured it was about time to begin my own log in order to become more accountable and hopefully accomplish the weight/bodyfat loss that is necessary to (1) ensure good health as I age, (2) help me regain my self esteem regarding my physical appearance and, (3) fit back into my clothes!

    My stats are as follows:
    Age: 42
    Wt: 137 lbs
    Ht: 5’1”
    BF%: Unknown at this time – would guess around 29% if not higher

    My goals are to drop 10-15 lbs body weight and/or decrease BF% to below 22% within the next 3-4 months.

    Here is my history:
    I have been working out for at least the last 20 years & have been from the “Cardio Bunny” phase to bodybuilding to powerlifting to just maintaining overall fitness and health. About 2 ½ years ago, I started having what I thought were perimenopausal symptoms. The hot flashes, mood swings, foggy thinking, forgetfulness, night sweats, weight gain especially in mid section, hips and butt. The list is much longer but I won’t go into that here. After going to several doctors and being told that I am just “depressed” and given RX for antidepressants, I finally found an angel of a doc who prescribed a saliva test. Long story short, my progesterone levels are at 15 pg/ml. Normal range is 100-600. So, having begun Progesterone replacement therapy ~7 weeks ago (transdermal), I am regaining some normalcy to my life: hot flashes are gone, night sweats are dissipating, I am more like the old me and I am losing some weight. Have dropped about 6 lbs in last 2 months.

    My eating habits are, well, not too terrible. I will try to post daily after posting in FitDay. I think my timing of carbs is off. I welcome any comments or suggestions to my eating plan. My supplements at this time are: 2-CB in a.m. before workout, T-rex on leg day, multi-vitamin, Udo’s Choice EFA’s.

    Workout routines vary from week to week as I get bored easily. I try to get to the gym @ least 4 mornings a week. My time in the gym is 45-60 minutes tops. I am old school meaning I try to do 12-16 sets for any given muscle group. I like to go heavy at times but cannot go heavy on legs as I can pack on mass easily. I try to fit in 2-3 HIIT cardio sessions per week (treadmill or elliptical). I will post workouts as they occur. Again, I welcome any comments or suggestions to my training routines as well.

    My thanks go to T-Cake, Bunny and all loggers for inspiration and courage to begin “loggin”!

    Re: Takniteasy's Log (Finally!)

    Okay, so former training partner remains just that - former. I go to the gym and she does not show up. So my workout today consisted of:

    40 minutes cardio - incline 10%, 4.0 mph

    Meal 5: 6:45 p.m.

    1 serving Margaritaville Lime shrimp (about a dozen)
    1 cup cooked pasta
    1 cup steamed broccili (garlic & pepper seasoning)


    Macros so far today (Per FitDay):
    1667 cals
    101 fat
    91 carbs
    120 protein

    Fat sources - 44g comes from Udo's Choice EFA oil and 36g comes from the almonds. I may need to cut the Udo's in half or find another choice of snacks or both.

    I normally don't eat starchy carbs at night but I have not had much throughout the day and I usually have some right after a workout.

    Weight: 135 lbs

    6:00 a.m.
    1 T-rex
    1 CB
    16 oz H2O

    Had a hard time getting myself motivated but got there anyways.

    Today was leg day. Used some of Shadow's principles, i.e. 4 TUT

    Modified Hack squat
    12, 10, 8, 6 x 50# for each set

    Extensions
    12, 10, 8, 6 x 55# for each set

    seated hammy curls
    12, 10, 8, 6 x 55# for each set

    I ran out of time (due to running my mouth with new mgmt of gym) so chose to due abs.

    2 sets each bicycles - 60 seconds, then scissors for 60 seconds. I don't remember those being so difficult!

    Meal 1: 8:00 a.m.
    2 scoops Isopure Low carb protein
    1/2 cup dry oats
    16 oz H2O
    1 cup black coffee
