Today I soaked in Epsom salts TWICE - I am SORRRRRE. Not hungry though, so I'll take what I can get. I did get Russ out for a nice hike this morning - brrr, it was frikken cold. I'm over winter. The hike was great though, loosened up these legs - hopefully I'll be ready for my next leg day by Friday. Pretty run of the mill day today - just running around getting errands/work knocked out. I can't believe how quickly the days are flying by! ON to the next!
Nothing better than an epic pump during a workout - and seeing some new cuts/lines in the upper body - to get ya hecka motivated! REALLY solid lift today and just felt GOOD all around. Must have been that 9 hour sleep last night! Feeling extremely satisfied and well powered through my day with these meals - hence the repetition. It's working for me so I'll stick with it! Love those morning PROATS! Solid day! Bring on the rest of the week!
Woke up at 4:30AM after a 4.5 hour sleep (oops!) - so I was a little worried about how today was going to go/feel ... but I surprised myself. Knocked out a great leg session, tackled my busy work day, kept hunger at bay (usually it's way up after a night of crappy sleep) and I'm feeling good! Early to bed for me tonight though...
Weighed in at 152.2lbs today. I don't think I've ever dropped water like this before; HOWEVER, during my cycle I've been known to fluctuate a good 7-8lbs on occasion, so big swings on the scale like this aren't new to me. The body is an interesting unit! Rest day today, but I got a good hike in with the pup in the morning. Running around ALL day (I'm over 20K steps today) so all of that movement should help keep things trucking along! Feeling REALLY good about how this first
Honestly though after some rehydration, the scale would go back up - but I'm still sitting at 154.2 today. This is good - water is off and staying off! Solid back workout today - fewer exercises but 5 sets on almost all. Volume was there and strength is feeling good. I pulled 125 on lat pull down for 8 solid reps - that's about as heavy as I've pulled on those in ... I think ever! So, definitely encouraging!
MAN. Scale came down to 154.3lbs today. Water is dropping like hot cakes!!! Admittedly I didn't drink as much yesterday as I knew I'd be sitting in a classroom for 3 hours last night... so that weigh in was dry - but still good to see. Looking like it's gonna be closer to 20lbs to take off for the stage, instead of 30 - so I'm feeling way more confident in my ability to tackle prep in the time-frame I gave myself (without having to get too aggressive). Solid leg day today - s
