makin it happen!

Thursday, April 22, 2010


so it's thursday night. figured i'd get a blog in real quick. i'm feelin pretty fantastic. so since february when i stopped working overtime at work and got back on my grind at the gym i've gone from 155 to 145... finally lost those 10 pounds that i talked about losing ALL LAST YEAR! and get this.. haven't even been stressin it! i just wake up, don't hit snooze, pack my lunch/snack bag for work, get my butt to the gym, focus on having an intense lifting session, guzzle down a protein shake, do 30-45 min. of cardio, and then i get home and eat oatmeal with blueberries and start getting ready for work.. and since i stopped focusing so much on cardio (because in jan/feb i was going cardio crazy) and more on strength training.. things are all just falling into place. i eat clean. i eat every 2.5 to 3 hours. i'm feeling great and getting really excited because at this rate, i will DEFINITELY be in the best shape i've ever been in, by this summer. my legs and glutes are my biggest challenge right now. i will not post a hamstring/glute shot for you guys because i'm not trying to make you lose your lunch. lol. no joke.. i'm just going to stay focused and keep workin on the total package because eventually they too will transform. (or at least i'm praying they will!) but anyway, just wanted to let you all know that i'm working hard, feeling great, loving the warmer weather and the fact that May is going to be here soon. good things!!! hope all of you are taking care of your minds/bodies!!! :)

much love,

    Way to go Wendi! Sounds like you are doing SUPER!!!

    Can I give you some advice that my trainer gave me about whipping my thighs/glutes into shape? Cardio will actually HELP make that happen too!!! Cardio stimulates blood flow in the legs... and this increased blood flow and circulation also aids in fat blasting! I know, it sucks to hear it, but it's true! (I'm not suggesting adding EPIC 60 minute cardio sessions, but perhaps 3-4 X 30 minute high intensity cardio sessions per week is what you need in parallel with the weight lifting awesomeness you are already doing to see the results that you are looking for in that area!) It worked for me :)

    Either way.... keep it up! I can also prescribe some wicked exercises to target the area if you want! Let me know!

    MUCH LOVE right back atcha emoticon

    Hey hotstuff, WOW, you're doing so great! Your energy is so positive and it sounds like you're on fire! I loved this blog it's seriously so inspiring. CONGRATULATIONS on your 10lb loss!!!! That is AMAZING. It' seems like you've really gotten into your groove and all your hard work is definitely paying off. I'm sure your hamstrings and booty look great! And if you do post a photo I bet it'll put all of us to shame. So lifting is the key huh? And you do cardo afterwards? Do you work particular body parts on this or that day, or do you do a circuit routine? If you don't mind sharing with me what you do, I would LOVE to hear! Also, what do you do for cardio? Keep up the awesome work. And HAPPY FREAKING FRIDAY tomorrow!!! It's about time, this has been a crazy week for me!
