It has been awhile since I posted, basically I just don’t have the mental energy left at the end of the day to write anything! Thanks everyone who left a comment on my photos, I am personally not totally happy where I’m at, and everything just seems to have stopped no matter what I do. Similar to my prep in 2006, the last 4-6 weeks were just treading water yet I was going very hard. I just wonder if I should cut back the cardio as I think perhaps my body is just preserving everything it has, but you can probably understand at this late stage it’s a big of a gamble to do something like that.
My training is still going great. My knee has improved and I was finally able to lunge last week. It’s quads again tomorrow so will have another go. Cardio is just boring unfortunately, though I’m so fit now.
Caught up with Jodie today, she doesn’t have long to go until she pops! We haven’t chatted for ages so it was really good to catch up.
I have been flat out with prep, organising my photo shoots and the comp accommodation, hair, tanning etc. It’s almost as bad as a wedding! And just as stressful! I’m still not entering until 2 weeks out, but will go over any way to watch Nadia and have a weekend away.
I’m getting very hungry at night and getting through the evening is really hard. I have to sleep between training sessions and space my meals so I have enough energy to train. Night time when I crash and get hungry is quite hard to manage, and even now I think I will go to bed soon (9pm) before I get hungry and go looking for stuff I shouldn’t have. Not that there is any contraband left in the fridge these days.
Today went like so – walk for 50 mins, home for hour of work, coffee with Damo (I look forward to this, we always go to a cafe for this), mail, book tans, get groceries, unpack groceries and time for half hour of work, meet Jodie for another coffee!!, home for half hour of work, chiro appointment, home for a bit more work then a sleep, get ready for gym, train, home to make post workout shake, cook big pan full of veggies, have a spa (I needed this!), cook fish, eat dinner, sit down here and finish off a bit of work. As you can see, the work is not really getting much of a look in. Every day is pretty similar to this – having an appointment or two really puts things out of whack. I am only doing 3 sessions when I can cope which is maybe 2-3 x week if that. I figure I can only do what I can do and not really willing to kill myself!
Ok well I might sign off now, and think about going to bed. Actually today I felt a bit drained, I had a weird dizzy episode last night too. My calories are pretty low for the amount of training I am doing and probably just starting to catch up with me! Hopefully I will get to post a little more but if I don’t you know I will be training, eating, sleeping…and drinking coffee!
