The Beginning of the New Me (Day 1)

Jan 10, 2011 - 0 comments










Let me introduce myself. My name is Gloria Estrada. I'm 23 years old and I currently weigh 171 pounds. I was first shocked when I first saw this number ( It was when I was diagnosed with psudeotumor cerebri. This was about a year ago in February.) My doctor told me that I had to lose a considerable amount of weight so that I could be cured. I tried and I've been a constant yo-yo well more like a roller coaster. Now, that I'm getting married ( and I really do want to have children) my friend, Denice, and I have decided to begin working out. We're trying to lose 30 pounds by my August wedding. Plausible? I think so.

We decided that every week, we're going to increase our time and speed. For instance this week we're walking at 3.5 MPH for 30 minutes at 3% incline. Next week, we're gonna increase the speed to 3.7 for 35 minutes at a 3.5% incline.As for our upper body, we're still gonna work our deltoids, biceps and triceps. We're currently doing two reps of presses and curls of 15 at 5 pounds one day and 10 the next.For our abs, we're doing 30 leg lifts (up and down) and then 30 left, center, right leg lifts. We also do 30 sit-ups and crunches.

So, today was the first day that Denice and I began our workout regime! It was so much fun! We started off at the treadmill and walked for 30 minutes. After that, we went to the exercise machines and worked on our deltoids, triceps and biceps. Then, we worked on our abs. I am feeling the soreness but it's not that bad. All I know is that we're getting a good work out and that we're gonna look good for my wedding! 3 more work out days to go. woop woop.
Til then
