Still just feeling...not like myself...and it really is the pits. I hope this passes quickly. On the plus side, had a great workout today - felt strong. Energy-wise, I'm GOOD! I've been sleeping well this week - so workouts have been solid. I just need to get out of my own head. Tomorrow is a rest day - I'll be doing a big hike - which always helps my mindset. OK - I'm done being whiney. I promise :)
PMS turns me in to a crazy person. It's official. I started the day with a high weigh in AGAIN (142.3lbs). Hit up my Coach to talk about where to go from here - and in a nut-shell, he told me to calm my tits and remain diligent/patient (which is exactly what I needed to hear, and 100% what I know I need to do) - as the INCHES ARE MOVING and the progress IS HAPPENING despite the stupid scale. I went to the gym - and took my frustration out on the iron - and had a REALLY great
Just had an amazing, amazing day. One of those days where you feel awesome, the stars align, things go right. I'm a happy girl. I CAN'T even wrap my head around how quickly the days are passing though. Today freakin' FLEW. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with the idea that I'm not going to be ready in time - probably because I weighed in at 142.7lbs today (WTF, SCALE!) - but I know those fears are normal for this stage in prep. I've barely scratched the surface and I know I
Off to a rock solid start to the week! Checked in with coach - macros have changed slightly. Increase in protein and decrease in carbs, but no change to calories. So now I'm sitting at P170/C160/F50 The increase in protein is good with me - I love ma MEATS - but still have enough carbs left to fit in ALL the VEGGIES too! Today was a rest day from the gym but I did manage to slip away from a very busy day of work to squeeze in a quick hike this evening. Started this week off w
Sure did get a finger stuck in a machine today - dang near took the tip off. Bled like a mofo! Luckily this was at the end of my workout, so I was able to get through everything on point up until that happened. Had another awesome sleep last night - ending this week on a high note! All in all - happy girl. Feel good, feeling strong - ready to tackle the next one like a champ! Let's GOOOOOO!!!!
Got about 10 minutes in to my hike today and realized that training legs the day prior, followed by a massive uphill climb was not the best idea. I wanted so much to turn back - but I knew once I warmed up, the pain would subside. I was right. 2.5 hours later... I was broken. LMAO! But seriously - it was another solid day in the books for me. GREAT sleep again last night. I'm on a roll! New lines and new veins are starting to pop and I'm feeling good. Progress is happening! O
Had another really great, productive day! Knocked out a strong leg session this morning - got a little walk in with the pup this evening. Smashed work between. Hunger levels have been ok today - surprisingly so, because #legday :P Off for my bedtime ritual now - those Epsom salts are calling my name!
Solid 9.5 hour sleep last night HALLELLURRRR! I went to bed super early last night - did the wind down ritual (power down all electronics, lavender epsom salt soak, a little reading) and I was out like a light. YAS! It did me a solid. Felt great today - finally got my bench back up to 140. My top bench was 145# 5x5 at the height of my bulk - so considering I'm 12 pounds lighter and benching bodyweight, I'm a happy girl! As I mentioned yesterday - I HATE pushing workouts back
