Now that my Track season is done I can start dieting and doing my own exercise.  I will weigh in later today I should come in around 290-300, which is really dissapointing.

 I have started a calendar trick that I learned from youtube.  It is called “Don’t Break the chain.”  Basically you get a calendar specifically for each goal that you want to do.  I have one for working out, one for school, and a last one for Triond.  My goal is to work out every day for at least 45 minutes.

 I started my work out yesterday, and today I start my diet.  I am feeling pretty good about it.  I will be doing a combination of cardio and strength training.  I prefer strength training so that will be the majority, but I will add more and more cardio in as I go.  Yesterday my workout was:

Bench Press- 3 Sets 10, 8, 6, With weight increasing by 5 each time starting with 25 plates on each side and ending with 35’s on each side.  

Biceps- Standing one arm curls 3 sets of ten with a 20 pound dumbell

Triceps- Extension 3 sets of 10 with a 20 pound dumbell

Squats- 3 sets 10,8, 6 starting at 25 on each side, then 35 on each side, then 40 on each side. 

I also did a short ab work out. I did 30 seconds of each ab exercise and went through the cycle twice.  The ab exercises I did was, crunches, side crunches, bicycle, toe touches, planks, and side planks.  

As far as cardio I did the elliptical, but I might do bike one day and the treadmill another.
