WOOSH.

Woke up to a new low of 133.9lbs today! Had a 3 hour hike scheduled but decided to forgo it as I had a crap sleep last night and I'm pretty zonked - plus that big woosh on the scale, maybe it's time to start paring down the cardio... we'll see. Took Russ out for an hour walk - easy pace today, then took the rest of the day off to chill. Needed it - and it felt really good (although a little weird!). Today was a nice break from it all anyway! Just need to get caught up on my sleep tonight and hopefully rock out a solid lift tomorrow!

So tired.

Once again - had a super crap sleep last night. Very interrupted and the sleep I did get was chalk a block full of really crazy dreams... weird. Managed to get a solid leg day in today which was CLUTCH. 1/4 of my last leg workouts DONE and dusted :P Topped the day off with a 12K hike to get some cardio in... Pulling energy out of my ass right now lol

MAN

Super solid lift today. Strength was OK - matched some lifts, had to scale down and increase reps on others. Not surprising for 2.5 weeks out super low carbs (for me). Feeling good today - getting through! Getting down to the wire but I'm feeling confident with where my body is at.

Another Monday DOWN

And a solid start to the week. The HUNGER is real - but so is my desire the bring in my best package to date... so nothing gonna stop me at this point. Power through! At least cardio dampens the hunger levels for a small chunk of time. Got a good sweat session in this morning... Excited for pull day tomorrow! Time for an epsom salt soak, slather my body in tiger balm, and an epic sleep - my wind-down routine of choices these days!

YESSSS

Feeling SO good and STRONG today after a really solid sleep last night. Managed to get the 55DB's up for shoulder press today... that's NEW for me... at 3 weeks out? Ya kidding me? PUMPED! Feeling really good going in to this next week... Legs are COMING in too - I SEEN'T IT.

LEG DAY DONEEEE

Only 4 more leg days to GO! Today's session was really good - felt strong albeit super low energy.... my quad seems to be behaving at the moment which is making me really happy... I'm sure I've lost some quad size in the last few weeks due to having to scale down volume on a lot of lifts - but if I'm on the way back up now, I can't worry too much about it at this point. 3 weeks out today and a new low of 136.6 on the scale - down several more inches this week to boot. Happy Camper! Final push to the finish....

Busy Busy!

Day off the gym so I got some errands done and dusted - planning a vacation for immediately after the show, which means I'm trying to get things organized for two things at once, and running out of time to do it all in! Sure makes the time fly though... Can't believe tomorrow marks 3 weeks OUT! Getting down to the wire... starting to feel the nerves/excitement kick in.... I must be running on that cause I sure as F ain't running on carbs. HUNGRY HUNGRY HUNGRY. But I'm in control. I'm at the helm. I'm the captain of this ship...

Bye Bye Strength

Strength is really starting to putter out at this point - lack of carbs and lack of energy are the running theme... but we press on. At least I'm holding most of my lifts relatively steady. No massive DIVE in strength... yet, at least. I'm feeling pretty dead these days. Counting down minutes. Nervous, excited.... mostly just tired though.

SUIT IS HERE!

Low energy day today but somehow managed to pull a leg day and a 12K hike off. AND MY SUIT CAME! That upped the excitement level for SURE. It's gorgeous and I can't wait to rock it on stage :) Leg day was a little random due to a super finicky QUAD strain that keeps rearing it's head. Playing it safe so I don't get sidelined this close to the show. Better safe than sorry as they say. All in all a solid day.

Feeling GOOD!

8 hour sleep last night and I'm feeling A+ Energy is on point today, hunger is at bay. Strength continues to hold steady and/or increase - decent pump considering carbs are so dang low. Hopefully this sets the tone for the week!

NEW LOW

Hallelurrrrrr things are happening! 137.3lbs on the scale today which is a new low for me for this prep - and a good spot to be starting the week off at. Only down from here with that macro slash! I'm on that black coffee train :P Food on point for the day and got my 60 minutes if MISS in at the gym - busy work day but I'm through and tucking in early once again. Sleep is my everything right now!

Done and Done

Another week down and in the bag! Rough day today - stressed and feeling the pressure drop... but I'm happy with where my physique is at currently. Would just love to see these legs catch the hell up. Making a tweak to macros for next week - food is dropping... I'm sure I'll be feeling the effects of that compounded with everything else next week... but I'm SO close now, I KNOW I can power through. Time to make some magic happen.... Early to bed tonight to get next week started on the right foot! HERE WE GO!

Riding the Wave

Slept amazing last night - having a really good day energy-wise. Knocked out a big hike this morning to wrap up cardio for the week (well, almost... still 20 minutes to do before tomorrow's push day.) 4 Weeks out and feeling GOOD. Hopefully I can keep this up!

LEG DAY!

Best leg day in a long as time it feels like. Quads and knees actually behaved for a change. Things are on the upswing! Feeling good today - got a 12K hike in to boot. AND - suit is on it's WAY! 4 Weeks out TOMORROW and it's getting REAL!

Getting it Done

Strength is holding strong and energy was OK today... feeling like I just can't get enough sleep these days. It's that brutal 4 week out mark in prep - gets me every time. Oh well. Gotta keep going.

No sleep.

UGH. Terrible sleep last night. Energy continues to tank ... but I'll push through. Cardio day today - knocked out 60 minutes of incline walking at the gym this AM and got out for a 12K hike this evening. Going to bed super duper early so I can hopefully wake up refreshed and ready to smash out a big upper session tomorrow. This too shall pass.... that I know.
