Everything is going well. Today was the ultimate test for me. A coworker brought in a homemade chocolate cake and on top of that someone bought pizza for the entire office! I stayed strong and stuck to my chicken.
I also met with my stage trainer this past weekend and we have dropped my carbs down a bit. That just means taking control and keeping track of everything. Once you know what you can have it really isn’t hard. I am pumping in the protein (130 g/day) and taking in 40 g of carbs for 2 days and then 60 g of carbs 2 days and so on.
Workouts are kicking butt. I am continuing to push myself and really get that weight up. Today I worked lower body and core. It went something like this:
Squat: 105 lb x 8; 110 lbs x 6; 105 lbs x 6
Deadlift: 3 sets at 60 lbs x 10 reps
Step-ups on bench: 50 lbs x 10; 50 lbs x 8
Lunges: 60 lbs x 8
Calve raises: 100 lbs x 6; 90 lbs x 8; 75 lbs x 7
Sumo squat: 95 lbs x 8
I finished off with a few isolated moves of leg extensions and curls to finish strong and really get my legs begging! This workout kicked my tail and my legs are still shaking! I finished it off with a great protein snack and headed home to cook dinner.
I will be posting pictures before I leave for vacation next week. I have been taking picts every two weeks to help motivate me and remind me what I am working for.
