Okay, this is not my official picture for the Ass Project this week--I'll post new pics as soon as Susan gets home from work and snaps them for me. However, this is a picture of my posterior that was taken on the great art festival of St. Susan's day (last Saturday), so it is recent. I plan to have a weekly photo of me in my workout clothes -- sorry, I just am not brave enough for the granny panties.
Here is my plan: I will exercise at least five days a week. I will do strength training three days a week and do cardio everyday (though I will feel free to take off one or two days a week). I've been exercising this summer, but I haven't been working on my diet. So, although Mrs. G's program does not include diet, I believe I will try to cut back on the fats and on bread.
Here's the weekly update: On Monday, I met with my trainer Adrian. (Yo.) I did 15 minutes on the elliptical machine, and then we did a good deal of lifting and other exercises for a total of a 60 minute session. We focused on arms, back, and core. On Tuesday, I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike and 20 minutes on the treadmill. On Wednesday, I did 15 minutes on the bike, and then worked for 45 minutes on strength and core. I worked arms and shoulders and core, but I also tried to do some leg exercises. Then Susan and Morgan joined me at the gym and we did 30 minutes on the treadmill. I have not exercised yet today, but I plan to do some cardio--maybe just the treadmill today--and I plan to do strength training again on Friday.
As far as the diet is concerned, I have been eating somewhat better this week than last (at least this week contained no Kahlua cake), but I've still been somewhat free about the consumption of carbs and booze.
