Bread is the Worst Thing You Can Do When You’re in Prep…

I THOUGHT I knew how to eat healthy and how to improvise, but I proved that idea wrong over the weekend.

I had gained 2 pounds when I was supposed to LOSE 2 pounds.  I really set myself back with only 4 weeks left.

I had to face the music. After informing my trainer she was honest about the implications of my food choices but also told me a lot can happen in the final 4 weeks, but I have to stick to the plan.

Abiding the diet now 100%, but I am kicking myself for what I did. Ok…regroup…what can I do. I absolutely do NOT want to get on stage with thoughts of regret or “I should have done…” or “oh my gosh I should not have…”

The diet is making me feel weak at the gym so I am not pushing myself as far as I used to. I decided I need more time with my trainer or Luke so that I could be pushed or spotted.

I am an action girl – a doer. So here is a list of things that I need to do to help me feel like I am doing EVERYTHING I possibly can to come in strong on April 2nd:

  • GET BETTER SLEEP – I really, really, really need to get serious about sleep
  • Drink all my allotted water
  • Stick 100% perfectly to the nutrition plan Susan designed for me
  • Train more days with Susan to make sure I can get through my workouts
  • Watch my posture

My cardio has increased a bit and am relegated to running or stepmill. Relegated…that is such a negative word…I have been AWARDED the opportunity to still reach my potential! THANK YOU, I’LL TAKE IT!! 😀

This is me about to bust my butt like no body’s business. It can be done. It will be done.


Mood Swings

Ok so this diet is really getting to my mood.  I noticed that lately I am really tense as it gets closer to my meal time.  I eat every 3 hours ON THE HOUR, so my body knows when to expect food.  I have been way less tolerant. I’ve really been trying to watch it, but I am around SO MANY people and a lot of family ALL the time, so it’s not like I can just keep to myself.  It’s hard to stay focused! I am trying really hard to think before I speak, or try to stay at my desk until I absolutely HAVE to…or avoid people unless I am mentally prepared to smile and breathe.

Makes me sad – I don’t want to be like this, nor do I want people to think I’m just crabby! 😛 How do you combat this?

Susan mentioned St John’s Wart for it’s calming affects.  At this point I want to try anything and everything – I don’t like this mood business! 🙂

  • The brutal diet and saying no to foods I love, I can handle that.
  • The 4am workouts when I just want to sleep, I can handle that.
  • The double workout days even in bad weather, I can handle that.
  • The mood swings negatively affecting the ones I love?….not worth it.  Need a solution, stat.
