I have been lazy lately with blogging….I’m sorry!!! I took this photo an hour or so ago and thought I’d at least give you a bit of an update. I have been wondering lately if what I’m doing now is becoming a habit or if I’ll be so sick of it next year after my comp that I’ll rebel and go back to my old ways…say it ain’t so! I really hope this is becoming a habit for me.
I can see me later in life with kids, packing up my lunch and snacks and packing up lunches and snacks for my toddler(s) to go out on the town for the day. We’ll see. I hope that I don’t make my kids crazy with all of my obsessions and preoccupations about weight. That’s a topic for another day…moms who have any advice about this….please share!!!
Still truckin’ along on my plan with cutting. I’m seeing changes, slowly but surely. Erik has me with no cheat meals for 2 weeks to try to see more results. I really think my cheats were affecting my results. I decided to change my mental theory on them. Rather than planning for them all week and really feeling like I deserved everything I’d craved ALL week in one sitting, I’m not planning a cheat at all, but rather waiting until I truly crave something and if on a training day (a day I can have carbs) and it’s been at least a week….if I truly cannot live w/o it…I’ll have a CONTROLLED cheat….really truly controlled!!! This is a work in progress for me! But, I’m doing better and as I always say…life is a journey!
Those of us who do this are crazy, yes, but motivated and we keep our routine day in day out, week in week out, month after month, some year after year. I think that exercise is a part of my life now that I could not live without…well, I should say lifting….I can probably live without cardio. Though I think I will get a bike during or after this comp and may enjoy road biking…we’ll see. I hope that this diet will also be part of my life after this comp. It is quite easy to keep it up…maybe with a little bit more relaxation and some family dinners that aren’t on my “plan.”
MY BACK – It’s getting better though it’s not totally better yet. I had an xray and found out it’s musculature, so glad to know there’s nothing wrong with my spine or discs!!! But, as you all know, sports injuries take time to heal and I’m working on healing right now. It just takes time and Erik has been great about adjusting my workouts to do what doesn’t hurt for the time being….don’t get me wrong….my new workouts are kicking my BUTT!!! WOOHOO!!! LOVE IT!!!
