So for 2 weeks I was not doing so good with the diet plan. Having a cheat here and there and everywhere. They were all relatively minuscule or even healthy so my brain was not red-flagging me. Then it hit me what I was doing and it made me scared that I wouldn’t be able to pull through when it really mattered. I sent out a scared-helpless sounding email to my trainer confessing what I had done. She then had me log my food for 1 week. I did better that week, but still had 4 out of 7 days that were not to plan. 3 of those 4 had a cheat meal or cheat snack in addition to the meal plan.
Susan broke it down for me – right now its muscle building time, later it will be highly critical that I lean out, but until she says “NO CHEATING”, then I shouldn’t beat myself up because I’m allowed a bad day or even a bad week. She explained to me that its a hard thing to adapt to and she shared about her initial experience in the sport. She said it IS hard, but it will get easier. She made me feel like I could kick this thing 🙂 She made me feel less terrible and more ready to get back on track.
I am indeed back on track! I also saw my bodybuilding.com friend‘s progress pic, who started at about the same time as me, and she looks phenomenal!
Yesterday I took my SuperPump250 and was REVVING!!! I actually did a full hour of bis and tris (usually 40 min) and was ready to do a billion situps and run 3 miles. Unfortunately I had somewhere I needed to be so had to cut it short with only a 1 hour workout. DEFINITELY going to use it again today for legs. RAWR!
People who have motivated me this week to press on and stay true to the lifestyle:
Luke, my husband
Susan Groshek, my trainer
Donloree, training for her first competition (THIS WEEKEND) and still managed to stay true during Canadian Thanksgiving dinner!
