It was raining and cold when I woke up, so I figured I'd get my cardio done at the gym today. Got a great sweat session in on the stairs - and felt GOOD through out! I'm still stuffed up but feeling so much better as each day goes on. Got a tonne knocked off my to-do list today - and will be tucking in to bed super early again tonight. Need to kick this cold for GOOD! Epic FRIDAY night, hey! Ahhh, prep life. Sleep has to be my priority right meow, what can I say.
Feeling like a hot mess STILL - really wishing this cold would take a hike. Well enough to train but it truly does suck the energy for the rest of the day. My workouts so far this week have been surprisingly good despite it all - which is a bonus! Being sick while in prep sucks. But it is what it is. Can't wait to have my ability to breath back LOL!
I am STILL siiiiiiick (Pretty sure it's a #mancold - cause I am hurting! 😂😂😂). I am PMS-ing HARD
I am running on 2-3 hours of sleep thanks to a restless dog And yet somehow - I still rocked my workout! I made it my mission to go in to the gym and go as hard as I possibly could - use every ounce of energy just to make each rep count... That's what I did. Kait 1, Prep 0 Today was a good day! Now if only this cold would F off!
Starting to feel like a human again! Managed a workout today - it felt strong, but ... definitely took me a while to get through it. At 7.5 weeks out - I can't complain. It was around 4-5 weeks out in my last prep that I really noticed strength start to take a hit - and energy dip big time. My goal is obviously to not let that happen this time around. I think staying on top of sleep is going to be a big part of that. Ample rest and recovery is crucial. All in all - a pretty s
Patiently waiting for this sickness to F right off! Figured I would attempt to sweat it out on the stairs today... Felt pretty dang good afterwards too! But - progressively more stuffed up as the day went on. I'll just continue to do what I can to fight it. Sleep. Hydrate. Fill the macros with nutrient dense foods. Hoping I'll feel well enough to rock a workout tomorrow. And if not... I might just have to suck it up and do it anyway (which I probably will....)
It's amazing what being sick can do to your physique. Even my face is swollen.

Woke up with my throat on fire. Dragged my butt to the gym - and wanted so very much to get through my workout. I tried. I really did. Started feeling achy and feverish while I warmed up... and then it all went south. SUPER. SICK. UGH. But - better now than in 5 weeks from now. That's the positive thought I'm holding on to. No workout for me today - but managed to get my macros in at least. It's 7pm - I've been in bed the majority of the day - about to tuck in for the night t
