First of all: I highly doubt anyone is remotely interested in this but I’m blogging my experience to help me learn.
Positives: I have not been on the scale since Jan. 31. I have no idea if I’ve lost an ounce or gained 5 pounds.
Positive: Some Lulu pants I got in Vegas are too big for me today.. I’m back in my “show season pants” size 6.
Positives: I feel great. Still on 1853 calories a day. I’ve gone over so I’m more like 2000 on some days.
Macros are : roughly
Fiber always eat about 50g a day.
I have not had “sugar” in the form of cookies, treats or such since Jan 1. Except for a few minor mistakes on reading labels. I have come to terms with not eating it. I have also realized that sugar alcohols make me quite sick. So it, is what it is. I’m better off. I blew macros one day when I ate 4 Questies. This S’mores one is off my plan.
This last week, I did not feel like I did very well. I had a sushi dinner and ate a little off the buffet. I did that on my long day when I usually burn an extra 1000 calories just in my work. I wish I wouldn’t have done that. I didn’t binge but my head was a mess. I told myself to let it go!
I’m actually still 5 weeks from my 12 week prep so I am resisting every urge to go full on stripped out carbs and no real life food. I need to stay the course and continue this steady, slow lean out.
I have 3 shows within a month and my goal is to feel good enough to do all three. If I start cutting fast now, I’m worried about stalls. So I’ll press on as planned. I’m progressing so it is anti-plan to cut everything before I need to.
Sweet potatoes are back in my rotation.
Workouts this week felt off. I got everything in, just felt scattered. I have three 15 minute hiits now, 5 lifting days, 2 pilates workouts.
This week I’m all prepared. My gym plans are made and menus are done. Fired up!
I went to Club Fitness on Hampton today so I could shoot my progress pic to match the one from 2 years ago.
I haven’t been there for almost a year. I freaked out because the same 5 people were on the cardio equipment that are always there. I wanted to say to them, “You look exactly the same.” So happy I found my way back to body building.
Hope you have your plan set up for a great week! Thirteen weeks until the pool opens!
