Yes I thought that would get your attention! Unfortunately it’s true, I did have a bit of a blow out last night. It was just one of those nights where I was consumed by the hunger monster. I put it down to two things. One, it was leg day and I caned my quads that morning, along with biceps and abs. Two, I’m pre-menstrual. Those two things combined with walking the edge as far as keeping a balance goes, just tipped me over. I trained well, had plenty of energy for the session. Came home, ate, and did some work. About an hour later, started feeling a bit exhausted, kind of dizzy/dazed/wiped out feeling that I get which I believe is an adrenal reaction. I also felt very hungry again. So I ate my 3rd meal, together with lots of sea salt, and had a sleep. I zonked it for an hour and a half, and when I woke, as has been the case a lot of late, I felt so groggy and drained. I cannot wake up properly and really struggle for the rest of the day. I pushed myself to go for my cardio, which was only a walk but it was hard yakka. I knew it was going to be a struggle. I managed to last out the rest of the day, but dinner time came, I ate. And I ate. And yes, I ate. I had two of my allocated meals one after the other, and even that did not satisfy me. I then attacked more chicken, a half avocado with some cheese, and not one, but two, yes two – bowls of protein powder and raspberries! Then to finish off, I ate the head off my Lindt bunny!!! So Kathy, I doubt I shall bring half a bunny to Adelaide with me But I do still plan to have the other half intact by then! So, there you have it, warts and all. I think you guys appreciate me being honest and not pretending I am perfect!! Anyway I could have berated myself and beat myself up about it but I just went to bed – it was still early, about 9pm!! I was just totally exhausted. But satisfied!! As I do, I weigh myself every morning and was a bit hesitant after my efforts. However I was quite surprised I was in the 110′s still. I am hoping it doesn’t catch up with me over the next few days but I think I should be ok as I was really really good today with my diet, and also did two really good cardio sessions. I’m weighing in the 110′s tonight (so I’m a serial weigher – but I find it interesting), so I expect to possibly be my lowest weight yet tomorrow. See what happens.
I caught up with my good friend Julie today, who is here for Easter, from Melbourne. Her first comment to me was ‘gee you look thin’ so at least she noticed something different since last time! We went out for coffee and a good old chin wag this arvo. Tomorrow I am catching up with Lisa (a past client and Body Blitz winner, and now friend) for coffee and then we are going for a walk. It will be good to have some company for my cardio!
I think I am getting a cold Nice timing, not. I have the sneezes and a snuffed up nose – not blocked just sort of itchy. And feel a bit crook in the guts – to put it eloquently. I always load up on Vit C powder as soon as I feel anything coming on, so I hope that will help me get over it quickly. Unfortunately I can’t rest though. Tomorrow it’s back to training, gym is open only in the morning so will train shoulders, back and triceps then, and walk with Lis in the arvo.
Finally THANK YOU to all you lovely ladies for your beautiful comments, my head is getting a bit big over it. Not really of course but I do appreciate you stopping by and your support and encouragement. If any of you live in Adelaide and would be interested in seeing the comp let me know! I started re-learning my routine yesterday. Took about 5 minutes before it started to come together – I will do some practise every day so I can do it without thinking. At the moment I’m very proppy as I still have to think what comes next. I will be thinking about how to approach the final week over the next few days. I don’t think I will do a carb deplete or load, might just leave that as is and rely on the water and sodium to do the job. Not quite sure how to approach the training, probably just keep doing what I’m doing, but a light workout that final week. I believe I will still need to cardio unfortunately, would be nice if I was ready enough to have a rest from that.
