Soooo, a road trip followed by a couple of races and a case of extreme taper training = no weight loss. At all.
My goal of losing 8 lbs for the month of May is kinda shot right now, unless there’s a miracle. And it’s not like I can honestly say I’ve gained muscle (from what, sitting on my butt?) or lost inches. Maybe I’ll go with the idea that my body is taking a break after the 12 lbs lost last month.
Boy, when one’s head isn’t in the game, it sure shows.
I started tracking food again today, and saw that I’m actually coming a little too far under in my calorie count. I’m actually not eating enough. DUH. All that opportunity to go mental on broccoli, spinach, etc – lost.
The big race is Saturday, and I swear my muscles are seizing up due to lack of use. I’ll have to get out the roller or sit in the hot tub to loosen those suckers up a bit in order to make that 25K on the weekend. I just want to go, run, have fun, FINISH, and go home.
I put up my Shaun T training poster and set up my workout area for Insanity – The Asylum, but I think I’m going to hold off a bit until my flexibility returns. Keep your shirt on, Shaun. I’ll be back in a month.
Instead, I’m rounding up friends to do the 21-Day Fix with me in June. It’s all about three weeks of getting our shit sorted. (You wanna hot body? You wanna Bugatti…?) And knocking me off this stupid plateau.
Rumour has it from others I know who’ve done it…10 lbs + several inches lost in 3 weeks (can this be??) and a meal plan with portion guidance so you don’t fall off the track into nacho heaven…by accident. Haha. Although, nacho heaven can be a nice place, but not if you have like, a class reunion, wedding, or some other social event this summer when you need to be slim n’hot.
Oh yes, this just got all VANITY up in yer grill…
Want to join me?
Time to get on with it – for reals.
Like, summer is practically HERE.
