Started my week off with my "rest" day - cardio only. Knocked out a solid hour of incline walking - good sweat session and sets the tone for the week - it's therapeutic! Definitely needed a day off of lifting - 4 days in a row last week wasn't ideal and by last night I was really feeling that. Feeling much better today - energy is on point although I'm HUNGRY today.... Holding tight for the refeed TOMORROW! WOOT!
The rollercoaster of prep - one day I'm down, the next I'm back up. I guess that's the key thing to remember... what goes up must come down and vice versa. All bad days are temporary. Today was solid. Pissed my right knee off with leg extensions today and I'm going to have to keep an eye on that... Other than that, on point! NEW low weigh in today for this prep - 141.7lbs We're cruising now!
Energy is at NIL. I've HIT my WALL! It's taking everything inside of me just to do simple tasks today. Workout was good - but took a long ass time to get through. Hunger levels are non-existent but I'm REALLY wanting to eat just for more energy. FRICK. Not a sleep issue cause I got a decent amount last night... just feeling the deficit. These are the days that really put you to the test in prep. Just hoping tomorrow is better. Trying to hold off until Wednesday for the refeed
10 hours of sleep last night!!! Hallelujah!!!! Had a great leg sesh this morning - knocked out 60 minutes of cardio this evening. Things are cruising along! New low weigh in today - 142.3lbs We're getting THERE.
This has been a really terrible day all around on account of ZERO (yes you read that right) sleep last night. Pushed leg day to tomorrow as there's absolutely no way I could have done anything productive today what-so-ever. Got Russ out for a long hike this aft in an effort to stay moving... so at least that's done. Early to bed for me. Drained.
Today was fun! Ended up going out to catch the hockey game at a pub downtown in the evening. Stayed on point with macros - drank a protein shake while I was there and then hit some broccoli and chicken once home. It IS possible to go out and enjoy yourself while on prep - and without feeling the pressures of having to partake in the food. You can say NO :P Had a solid pull session in the AM - very happy with how my upper body is looking... legs are starting to come in. I'm se
Started this week how I start every week - CARDIO! Great sweat session this morning - felt good. Increasing the incline on the treadmill each week to up the intensity consistently... Food on point - busy day with work! Off to catch up on sleep after a crappy 5 hours last night. I'm POOPED. Looking forward to PULL day tomorrow!
