Week 6

First off I would like to say hello to the 5 or so followers of my little babble blog. :)  Thank you so much for following along!

This week marks 6 weeks since I started the weight training program from I haven't been doing alot of cardio but the heavy lifting is helping with any added fat that I accidentally develop. This weekend was mostly crap food wise so I'll be doing at least 3 days of cardio this week.  Anyway, my lifting weights are up siginificantly since I started this program. 85lb deadlifts people!! My goal by the end of the next 6 weeks to is deadlift my current body weight at that time. (probably around 135lbs)  I have yet to figure out what happens after I'm finished these 12 weeks but I'm pretty sure I'm going to go back to working individual body parts and if I get bored of that then I'll go back to this 12 week program. :)

On a different note I attended my first photography class yesterday. I enrolled in an 8 week course to teach me the basics of taking a technically good photo and there are 2 other classes I will complete probably this year.  This is in hopes of one day taking pro photos specifically fitness related photos (I've probably touched on this before and probably will again since I can never remember what I've written from day to day. lol) I would have really liked to have taken the diplomacy program but that's 10 months full time and momma has to pay the bills. lol Anyway, yesterday was merely introductory. I learned about most of the buttons on my camera which have been eluding me since I got it. lol  In the following weeks I should be able to take a fabulous technically sound photo.  I have a bunch of willing specimens to let me try out my talents which will help me build a portfolio. Now I just have to figure out photoshop........

  1. Great job! I don't know if you've found this out, but since I started lifting heavier (in that 6-8 range) I can lift a lot more than I give myself credit for. Guess I was stuck in my comfort zone for so long!

    Oh Chantelle how I miss photoshop! Such an awesome program! Try and find a class to teach it if you can, there is SO much to learn about it and so much fun to play with and experiment!
