I am 7 weeks from my bikini challenge goal and 23 weeks from my show.
Successes this week.
I was spot on with my food and workouts. I had the best Plyo session of my life. I really don’t like Plyo so that’s huge.
I also have the coolest clients, who came out on Sunday morning to run the arch stairs. We did 22 trips up and down. That’s by
far the most I’ve ever done. We hit box jumps on the benches under the arch too. I felt great. I’m so thankful that I feel great!!
Working on some tiny tweaks to my meal plan this week. I’m feeling frustrated because I am holding a lot of water from my creatine loading.
I understood that it could happen. Some people actually like that! I am on Alpha Cre HD for just 30 more days. I will then switch to KreyAlkaline until we pull that before my show. I had only used KreyAlkaline in my last prep,so this is a new experience for me.
KreyAlkaline is supposed to have less bloating and I definitely experienced that. I did not, however have the strength gains I’ve had with my new stack. My strength gains are amazing. I leg pressed 230 two weeks ago. That was the highest I had done in my last prep.
This past week I did 4 sets at 300 pounds. Whoo hoo. I need to lift heavy. I have to build out my glutes. Once I start cutting, I tend to lose a lot of muscle! Come on, round booty!
I’m excited to notice a huge boost in my performance as well. Yesterday I did fast sprints up the arch stairs. Creatine helps those longer sprints too.
Getting used to being more bloated is tough for me. It’s a mental exercise to get used to my off season body.
We also stopped by Supplement Super Store and picked up new protein powder. Level-1 Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Frooty D loops and Ice Cream Sandwich. I’m adding in Ignition post lift too. These flavors are incredible. They are very sweet especially with the Ignition. I’m going to make the ice cream sandwich thicker and freeze it for my last meal. That will satisfy my need for sweets before bed.
Rob always preps my food. I’m so lucky. We have a deal I clean and do laundry while he food preps. That works for me! Here’s what our meals are for this week. Believe me, this is a bounty of great food. I am thankful every day for the ability to do this and for the support of my family. They eat what I eat. 🙂
All of the meals are separated into our containers after they have been weighed. Rob made all this food in 3 hours. We also have in the mix a no carb noodle made from tofu. Found that at Walmart. I won’t over indulge on that but it’s great. He did ours with chicken and mushrooms.
I’m set to have a great week. I hope you do too!
