Thank you! It was a long process, but I feel I made some really good changes going forward. Going to focus on Highland Games for a while, but I'm still going to work with my coach on diet and training. See if I can make some more progress with muscle gain and healthy fat loss.
So, last three days were tough. Competition was stiff (untested), but I didnt look like I didnt belong and I got some compliments from the judges who thought I just really needed to work on my posing which is true. The organizers and other competitors were great. Very nice and supportive. Happy with...
So weird. Drank 2 gallons of water yesterday, down 1.2 pounds this morning. Continuing with water load, will start cut on Thursday and start adding carbs back in then as well.

Its just a trend, makes them feel cool to be offended on behalf of people who wish they wouldn't. Just like white conservatives like getting offended on behalf of the flag and the military and Jesus.
Last posing practice last night, now i need to do it on my own every day. Spreading one's lats is harder than it sounds. Next week will be kind of rough for a few days, but carbs come back up the two days out from competition so I think I'll be okay.
So, as expected, with the carb cut, I'm already starting to gas out. Today was leg day and then I ran 45 minutes in the afternoon. Had to nap in between and reload carbs because my legs felt like jelly. I do not get a carb reload this week so need to manage expectations accordingly. But my legs are ...
I have this when I'm over tired and cant get into rem sleep. Melatonin makes it much worse. Last time I took melatonin, I bit my husband rather savagely when he tried to wake me up from a terrible episode. Apparently, my jaw still worked. I dont take melatonin any more.
2 weeks out now. 118 carbs, 40 fat, 157 protein, same cardio. Had my last high carb day today. Time to shred. In reality, I'm really tired. I am amazed at my ability to push through these workouts but I am tired. And sad, and i have a lot of doubt. Im guessing the result of a prolonged calorie defic...
149 on Tuesday morning. Kind of a big deal. Running out of gas on cardio today. Two more days of training before high carb day. I've not been hungry, just really tired in the afternoon and falling asleep before sundown.
Didn't check in on Friday as was traveling, but got another bump in cardio, 3 x 45 minute SS, 3 x 20 minute HIIT. Still mostly running/sprinting for these. Also, didn't cut macros but shifted some carbs to protein so now 125C/42F/155P. Need to get serious about my water consumption.

In my personal family experience, fat old people don't die young, they live to be 90+ and require you to change their diapers. Keep them mobile and its easier to get them on the toilet.
152.4 today. Hips are down to 40 inches, waist down to 29. 4 weeks out as of tomorrow. Still kind of fluffy and need to work on posing. My workouts will change up starting next week and I'm anticipating another big drop in macros.
Talked to my coach. Going to up the intensity on steady state and HIIT by adding in some jogging and hill sprints. I've worked to long to turn in a mediocre performance. Time to shine.
153.4 this morning. Was hoping to be under 150 by now. :( but, this may be hormonal. I'll see what happens the next few days. I understand that as a natural competitor, you have to be careful about peaking too soon so I need to figure out how to do this better. May just add in a low and slow 2 mile ...

People are really dumb and the internet allows them to bask in their ignorance. In indigenous societies that survive off of all meat, they are eating a lot of the organs, tendons, and bone marrow. Organs contain a lot of the vitamins that people in southern climates get from fruits and vegetables. M...
Only got down to 154.5 this week, but I feel like I'm holding some water which I guess will flush after high carb day tomorrow. We'll see. Started a new training program this week and I'm really really sore. Not sure what's different, but holy shit my abs and quads and shoulders are smoked. Back/Abs...

Unloading your personal bullshit is very different from verbally jerking a knot in their tail. Kids need discipline and sometimes need to know when they are fucking up and its serious. It's okay if you follow it up with a reasonable conversation and two sided problem solving. Boys especially respond...
Didn't lose any weight this week, but my waist shrunk a half inch. Not sure about that. 9 weeks out, its time to really get shit dialed in. My new numbers: Daily: 148C/47F/160P HCD: 238C/42F/150P Cardio: 3 x 30 SS 2 x 15 HIIT It doesn't look like much, but doing that cardio on top of 5 training sess...
