The things son says…
“Here I was blazing through girls like they are my clothes and he didn’t even have one girlfriend”
We were talking about how he hooked his friend up with a girl……
I am struggling. Not in the classic way. I have been eating well after I got back on track last week.
I am struggling to figure out how to not get obsessive.
Also, it seems like 80% of the things that I eat that aren’t Whole30 approved cause my gut to instantly blow up. Once this happens it starts the obsessive cycle over again.
Example: For supper we grilled veggies in foil. The whole foil packet had approx. 2T of organic butter. We had that with Trader Joes uncured basil pesto brats. No bun. Within 15 minutes I was miserable. So instantly my stupid brain starts down the restriction/obsessive path.
I don’t want to live like this. Being obsessed with what will or won’t make me feel like shit. What will or won’t stop my weight loss progress.
I have a bikini coming in the mail to me this week. I don’t want to look like a blow fish in it.
Considering sticking to Whole30 again except for a party this weekend and the weekend after the 4th. A) I feel best. B) I lost weight. Yet, I feel trapped in the restriction.
Ugh…. So stupid yet I can’t seem to shake it.

Happy with my performance. Stayed on it.
Finally, I am not feeling like a fat cow anymore. Last weekend left me so bloated and yucky feeling!
Mental note: fall to the bottom of the canyon and it will take a while to climb out. Getting out is possible though!
Let every other weekend drinking commence (1 night only). This weekend = off.
Hang Squat Cleans
5 X 60,65,70,75%
Squat cleans 3X5 (new 5RM)
I actually did power cleans for the middle set because I have squat cleans so much and they wear me out! They weren’t pretty and they weren’t unbroken.
I need to take a day and work on them at lower weights and get more comfortable with the movement. Especially since the coach now requires all cleans and snatches be full depth every time :(
5 X 60,65,70,75%
105, 110, 120, 125
3X5 (80%) supposed to be 135, I did 145,155, and 160
I liked just lifting today. I could have done the workout that everyone did yesterday but didn’t feel like it. Since it is Thursday and open gym I could do what I wanted
Crashing and burning
I like to think I eat pretty well. I do.
last weekend I drank and drank and drank and because I drank too much I ate pizza and ice cream and subway.
Now my sugar cravings are through the roof. All i want is cookies and cake and ice cream and chocolate and more of it all.
I find it amazing that having the white flour and sugar for a total of 3 meals have totally derailed all work I have been doing!!
I didn’t make it to the gym this morning. I still have this crazy chest congestion where I am left acting like a 3 pack a day smoker every morning for about the first hour. I also am feeling generally more tired then normal.
Tonight I am volunteering with a local beginners running group. This is where I started 2 summers ago and I love seeing the people who were in the same boat as i was working their asses off trying to get better!
