Went in to the gym today with the intention of crushing my workout - but ready to accept otherwise. Ended up having an awesome workout! Feeling MUCH better - and I 100% attribute my speedy recovery to taking exceptional care of my health. Micronutrients. Water. Rest. The recipe for all good things!
No major progress on the scale this week - BUT measurements are down. So I'm cool with that. Considering my activity level has been NIL the last few days while I've been sick - I can't really complain.

Woke up feeling exhausted. Was aiming to power through a leg day but my body had other plans. I got through my warm up sets of squats and my body started aching. I could not get warm - even with a sweater on. Failed half way through my squat sets. Moved on to lunges. Got two sets in and called the whole thing off. I am SICK! Got home in time to take a hot bath and climb in to bed. Slept away the afternoon! Feeling better this evening - maybe it's a 24 hour thing? Not sure, bu
I had my mid-week check in with Laz today. Today I'm 142.3 (holy fluctuations batman!) I'm seeing some good changes in my progress photos from week 20 vs now (17.5 weeks out): Nice progress through my mid section - you can't really tell from these pics but the shorts are getting LOOSE. Definitely losing inches in the right spots! I knew changes were comings this week though :P Starting 1200 calories of low intensity cardio per week.
Ok - I mastered the volume game today. I'm proud of myself. It felt like all I did today was eat - and that's because all I did today was eat. I split my breakfast up in to two meals. Then I split my lunch up in to two meals (listed under lunch and then again under snacks). Ate a HUGE veggie dinner (the volume is nuts - it's enough to feed 3 people.)

I now split my "breakfast" in to 2 separate meals. Each with 20g of oats, half a cup of egg whites, half a scoop of protein and 16g of coconut almond butter. I log it as one meal - but splitting it up gives me what feels like an entire MEAL between when I eat breakfast (6AM) and when I eat lunch (1pm
I feel like I could eat the world today. But alas. I will only eat the part that fits my macros. Had a good workout today - increased weight and/or reps on almost everything. Thank YOU preworkout. Weight is still sitting at 141. 1lbs today.
