Everything gets BIGGER!

Sometimes I have to remind myself of what I used to be in order to get back to what I used to be. It only takes looking at some prior photo's of yourself and then comparing them to the current ones to get me going. EVERYTHING GETS BIGGER this year! Yep, I going for gold from here:

Yes, it's the start of a new year and new decade. I know we all have so much to look forward too which is very exciting in itself. Today I wanted to talk about goals. What type of goals have you set for yourself for 2010 and what plan of attack do you have set in place to help you reach those goals? So many of us get caught up in resolutions that we initially forget to plan. Failing to plan is planning to Fail!!

So I'll go first. Here is my initial plan of attack. My goal is to:
1. Increase my strength- Get my squat up to 195lbs; Bench 105lbs; DB Shoulder Press 40's and start deadlifting again
2. LOSE THE FREAKIN' WEIGHT ALREADY!!!- Goal for this month is to hit 150lbs.
3. Do cardio 2x a week

Today I hit a new low that I haven't seen since Jan 2009. WOW!! I'm now finally at 155.5lbs and I see it only getting better from here. It did take me awhile to get out of my rut. I was stuck at 158-160 for the past 6 wks ago and then POW... I finally got the break I had been looking for. Wwhhooooo!

I took some time coming up with a new training split to help me meet these goals:

My new training split:
Day 1/Monday: OFF
Day 2/Tuesday: Chest/shoulders/back (Heavy)
Day 3/Wednesday: OFF
Day 4/Thursday: Quads/Hams/Calves (Heavy)
Day 5/Friday: OFF
Day 6/Saturday: Shoulders/Arms/Abs (Light/High reps)
Day 7/Sunday: Back w/ low back emphasis/Hams (light back/heavy Deads)

So this is my plan to help me reach my goals. I WILL make it back to the stage. I hope you have a plan too! ;)


  1. AWESOME plan of attack!!! my pre comp workouts were simualar to your new workout plan...closer to a show i would alternate heavy and light days....i have no doubt you will make it to the stage again and i also have no doubt you will bring your best physique ever!!! even though your body changes after having a baby,it WILL bounce back,better than ever!
