Heyhey Jaime's 2008 Journal...

Jaime's 2008 Journal...

Better late than never; here I am, back in the game

My current OFF-SEASON stats as of January 27th, 2008

Height: 5'5.25
Weight: 134 (0700 AM; DRY WEIGHT)
BodyFat (OMRON): 17.0% (DRY, at 0700; no food/water)
7-sight Pinch: 17.6%
BF% OMRON: 17%
Jeans/Pants: Size 6/7
Shirt Size: Medium

just as a comical comparative reference my last competition stats on stage day were as follows:

5'5.25
Weight: 118 lbs
BodyFat: ?? (it was 12.2% OMRON seven days prior)
Jeans/Pants: Size 4
Shirt Size: Small


My competetive goals for this year are:

One local/state level competition
One National Competition

I would like to bring a different package to the stage by the following:

(Generally)
To Gain size in my back width, triceps, hamstrings and biceps and to tighten and define my entire lower body and add some thickness to my abdominal wall to bring my abs out visually a bit more.

To come in at 112-115 lbs. on stage day, by loss of bodyfat only... and maintaining all lean mass (don't we all want this )

I am really motivated and more than determined to kick some ass this season,
here's to making it happen

hi there, what a cute avi you have!! Orlando? My hubby and I lived in Cocoa Beach for a few years; some members of his family own a gym there in Rockledge, FL called Building Bodies Fitness Center~ we get to go back and visit FL in March hopefully! Anyhow, nice to meet you

RE Training... I am writing up my own little thing for the next 4 weeks of training; I am going to follow one scheme of training for 4 and then alternate to another. I am thinking of a moderate weight, high rep plan with lots of TUT and circuit and ply for lower body and moderate weight high rep for upper body as well, but not circuit style so much as straight sets. I love the theory of DC and have written out many different DC protocols, but I really need to work on bringing the size of my quads down and tightening my legs overall, my quads love to grow and soon my legs look like tree trunks; pressing 605 lbs is cool and all, but doesn't make for figure-friendly thighs

Coffee Wed., January 30th

January 30th

Unplanned 2nd day off

I never take two days off in a row ~ but today was spent all over town trying to find a bolt for the idler pulley for our car, that we need in order to put the belt back on, it flew off on us after the ball bearings seized up and the pulley stopped and we were on our way home from dinner Strangely only 10 feet from the drive way, so at least its here

We have a 6 month old German Shepard, and she is crazy, hyper and very smart and she is needing so much more room than we have; we need to move soon.

Diet is 75% good, still struggling with motivation to eat 100% according to plan; When in contest prep mode its easy, stage day is your motivation, but when it seems so far away, it feels so easy to eat whatever you want, whenever it appears in front of you.

Anyhow, I am starting my new moderate weight, high-rep/high volume training protocol tomorrow, and staing with it for the next 2 weeks minimum to see what happens

Goodnight

I know...Sunday. I think I am going to do body pump in the am on Monday before our meeting. You in? I hear the problems with eating what's in front of you, it's tough, I feel it too being so far out. Think of it this way, we are about 20 weeks from prep...yike! Do we really want MORE cardio?! EEK! No more cheating for us.

cookies brownie bites
