Workout Plan Weeks 3 - 7/Weight Update

Okay okay okay, I have slacked off with blogging big time. But I have fortunately lost 10 pounds!!!!!! Tooooo freaking excited people :o). But anywho, here is how my weeks 3 - 7 went:

Week 3: Oct  17 - 23
Treadmill: was no problem of course....walked at 8.0 incline and 3.0 speed
Stretching: no problem
Sit-ups: 4 sets and 25 reps were no problem
Planks: I HATE doing these and 3 sets of 25 seconds sucked for me as always.
Crunches: 3 sets of 25 were no problem
Wall Sit: 5 sets and 30sec were burning my legs are course.....sometimes I could not go the full 30secs
Sit Ups: 10lbs weights at 3 sets of 15 reps were difficult of course
Squats: I HATE doing these but not as much as the planks lol....20 reps were not always met
Calf Raises: 8lbs were not difficult at all for 3 sets of 50

Week 4: Oct 24 - 30
Treadmill: 8.0 incline at 3.5 speed was a little difficult....was more comfortable no more than 3.3
Stretching: no problem
Sit Ups: 4 sets of 25 was not bad
Planks: Worse nightmare of course at 4 sets of 25.......could hardly get past 2 sets
Crunches: 3 sets of 25 was no problem
Wall Sit: with 10 lb weights were deadly.....4 sets for 1 min was insane.
Sit-Up: with 10lb weight were still difficult
Squats: did not have medicine ball in gym, but its deadly to me either way at 5 sets for 20 sec
Side Plank....C'mon you already know the answer to that lol {not good at all}
Calf Raise: 8lbs at 3 sets for 50 reps burns of course, but definitely doable
Russian Twist: always difficult...3 sets of 20 reps were hard, but they were done
High Knees: 3 sets for 15 sec were difficult because I have a large chest area...nothing is easy to press against a large chest
Bicep Curls: 3 sets of 15 reps were not difficult to do
Tricep Curls: 3 sets of 15 reps...not hard to do, but really starts to burn at that 2nd rep
Lunges: with 10bs weight and 3 sets at 3 reps were difficult on my knees
Treadmill: Was not able to ru with 5lb weights because none were available in the gym...running for 1min every 3 min was not the easiest thing to to and was not accomplished at 15min. Jogging was more comfortable

Week 5: Oct 31 - Nov 6
Due to me having a busy week/overtime at work, the core/resistant exercises were not accomplished, but I did include an hour of cardio through Zumba 3 days this week.

Week 6: Nov 7 - Nov 13
Due to a busy week/overtime at work, I worked out this routine twice this week, instead of 4.
Treadmill: 9.0 incline and 3.5 speed was a little difficult as far as speed wise. Incline is never an issue for me
Stretching: is no problem
Sit Ups: 4 sets of 25 reps were no problem
Planks: 4 sets of 60 secs, ummmmm no lol. I could do half of that.
Crunches: 3 sets for 25 reps were no problem
Wall Sit: 15lbs weight was really hard......1 min did not happen
Sit Ups: with 10lb weight was okay.....3 sets for 15 reps were taking longer to do
Squats: medicine ball was no applicable, but 3 sets of 15 were not difficult, but hard on my knees
Side Plank: could barely do 1....
Calf Raise: 10lbs at 4 sets of 50 reps were more of a burn, but accomplished
Russian Twist: difficult with 10lb weights.....chest area is an issue
Jumping Jacks: with 5lbs weights were hard due to my chest area
High Knees: difficulty with chest area
Lunges: difficult on my knees...medicine ball not applicable
Bicep Curls: 3 sets of 15 reps were okay.....always burned at 10th rep
Tricep Curls: 3 Sets of 15 reps were okay.....always burned around the 10th rep
Box Jump: not applicable
Treadmill: running is not my forte....especially for 3 min every 2 min :o/......just walked on 9.0 incline at 3.0 speed

Week 7: Nov 14 - Nov 20
Due to busy week/working overtime and surgery, I worked out 3 times this week with Zumba for 1hr and 30min prior to surgery that Friday {Nov 19}.
