REFEED DAY! 350g of CARBS! Although - it was not very exciting. When you look forward to a blueberry bagel for like...3 weeks - and then you get it, and IT'S STALE.... but you eat it anyway 'cause you can't stop yourself.... yeah. Sad. Almost a waste of carbs.... ALMOST! I even bought a little single serve Reese's Spread to put on it - which I'd never had before but had heard good things... It was MEH. Not worth the indulgence - and I feel my carbs/fats would have been put to
Another big ol' day of paperwork done and dusted! Knocked 350 cals out on the stairs this morning - and felt pretty good! Got a decent sleep last night and I'm starting to feel back to my ol' self. One more solid sleep should have me back on top of my game. Weight is stabilizing again around the 132lbs mark. It never ceases to amaze me how much sleep and stress influence the scale. I have been BLOATED the last few days and definitely not feeling like myself - but, seem to be
Hugely successful day for tackling tasks on my to-do list - which I'm happy about. I have another big day of paperwork ahead of me tomorrow and then I'm in the clear - and hopefully that will mean I can finally turn my brain off and get some sleep at night! I'm excited! Had a solid workout today but definitely not me best. My strength is really crapping out lately - and I know the reason for that is that my sleep has been off for too long. But - Coach said I get a REFEED this
It's been a ROUGH day. I got a grand total of 3.5 hours of sleep last night - coupled with some crappy sleeps the nights before and I am ONE TIRED LADY. When you're tired - the hunger is very real. Doesn't help that I finished the majority of my macros off by 1pm haha OOPS! Doing everything I can just to keep myself on track today. Let's just say my tea game is strong. Hit 350 cals on the rower this morning - half because I wanted to change things up and half because the stai
I'm not even gonna lie - I didn't complete the cardio I was supposed to this week. I am low-key dying today. Energy is at ZERO and I just don't have it in me. This is why I try not to leave cardio until the end of the week - and I won't be doing that again - lesson learned. I'm emotional today. Normally I'm a very level headed individual and I don't let things get to me - but on prep, everything is amplified.... I'm feeling homesick today (holidays hit me in the feels) and I'
Man. Did not sleep a wink last night. I've been in a bit of a daze today. I did not get my cardio done today as I just didn't have the energy. Tomorrow will be brutal - legs + making up the cardio I missed today ... but hopefully there will be a solid sleep backing it up! On the plus side - I was able to scrounge some "me" time up to go see a movie this afternoon! 10 Cloverfield Lane. Very cool flick, highly recommended! Early to bed for me.... TOMORROW - I will be back on my
Man. I'm off my game today. It snowed quite a bit over the last couple of days - and last night it rained - and then froze. So this morning the entire city was basically one big ice rink. The roads were so bad that I couldn't get to the gym... Finally the plows came and I was able to get in for a workout around 3pm - but holy moly was it busy. I was in a sea of teenaged boys. I hate working out in the afternoon for this exact reason... *annoyed* I'm hungry AF today too. Which
MAN this week has been great. Sleeping well, lots of energy, strength is up, crushing workouts, killing macros. I feel amazing - and confident! Love that feeling! I switched up my food for a bit of variety this week and I think that's really helping my mind set going in to this second half of prep. I'm beginning to feel that where I am right now is my "happy place" in terms of body shape. It's not super lean, but it's defintely lean. I feel I'm at a spot where I could happily
