I definitely didn't feel myself Saturday morning but by the afternoon I was as good as new. I spent the day studying and doing a little bit of work before I finally dragged my butt to the gym to do my second cardio. My hamstrings are still hating on me from my workouts Friday and Saturday. I can see an ice bath helps as a recovery tool. My legs and abs are what I want to focus on for the next two weeks but that I also really need to "Trust the Process." One of the reasons I was in such a slump on Saturday morning was that I weighed myself and I am back to my cursed weight of 128.4. This means I need to kill myself for the next two weeks at the gym doing cardio and leave it all on the table. Since I only have 12 more sleeps I should do as much as I can every chance I get so I don't have any regrets when I'm on stage.
My suits arrive tomorrow and words cannot describe how excited I am to open that box! It will be like an episode from Extreme Makeover Home Edition when Ty yells, “move that bus!” I think things are going to start get very real over the next little while. All the appointments I have booked are starting to come up including my personal training exam with Canfit Pro that I am studying for. It’s probably a good distraction to have that, training and work to keep me on tract with my eating and prevent me from grazing which at this point I haven’t be doing any of because of the stupid scale. Another reason I haven’t been grazing is because of that saying “i’ll start Monday.” Well there aren’t too many Mondays left for me to use up before the competition.
I told David, well I think he could sense my frustration because I wasn’t my bubbly self, about this on Saturday and he gave me the story about muscle being more dense than fat. I should take this as the truth because I did my heaviest deadlift to date, 175 lbs. Who knew I could lift so much?! On Saturday we did this crazy circuit. It involved me doing as many rounds as I could in 20 minutes. The round was 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups and 15 squats. I got through 12 rounds which means I did 60 pull ups, 120 push-ups and 180 squats, yeah buddy.
