Today was a good day.
I slept in this morning until 8:30 am and met up with a couple of friends for coffee and to scope out the local market.
A cappuccino and quinoa popped cakes were my market scores.
Breakfast was a combo of two meals, being that it was 1:00 in the afternoon before I finally ate, followed by a 2 hour nap 🙂
After my nap, I took time to configure the exact totals of each food that I would need for food prep for the remainder of the week into the weekend and took a trip to the grocery. I did this partially because I am leaving for vacation soon and don’t want to throw out any unnecessary food, but also because it is a method of willpower. These last 15 days of prep have been the toughest (the cravings are real).
My workout was a late night session, I didn’t get to the gym until 11:30 pm. I had a slight increase in carbs during the earlier part of the day and I felt good. I told myself on my drive that I had 2 more lower body workouts before show day, and I think that gave me new found energy to dig deep and go hard…And I went hard. This lifting session was literally the best lower body day that I have had in months!! I did every lunge variation that one could imagine. My overhead walking lunges were at 105 and my back rack and front rack walking lunges were at 125. I could feel every muscle fiber in my glutes and inner quads tremble with each step. It was an AMAZING.
I was at the gym until 1:00 am and when I got home had my last meal of the day which was literally a pan full of veggies and a plate of egg whites.
