Wow my challenge is now in week 7 already!! How fast is this year going?!!
Despite a few stumbles in the last few weeks, and that week of not training due to my stomach problems, I'm still ploughing along. My weekend was VERY controlled food-wise, and my only issue was not drinking enough water. Only 1.5 litres each day - terrible, terrible. Still, this no-alcohol thing really helps me stay on track. I find it hard though - I LOVE a glass of wine on Saturday night! I did my measurements this morning and the damage isn't too bad. No earth shattering results, but at least I havent gained centimetres. Weight is about the same.
It was 6 degrees outside when I got up for gym this morning, and it was 13 degrees in my kitchen (a house under renovation is not a warm house). I have taken to wearing a scarf to the gym but I draw the line at gloves. It takes a full 5 minutes of driving for my car's heater to warm up, and by then I'm only another minute or two away from the gym - just enough time to defrost!! I did legs and shoulders this morning - I did another PB on leg press - 130kgs, 3 sets of 10. I was so impressed with myself, but I think I strained something in my hammie as a result - well something went "twaaaang" in my leg. I was really grunting though this too, but I felt strong. I'm surprised at how much I've increased in weights in leg press lately - a couple of weeks ago I would have told you that I couldn't lift more than 100kgs. Its funny how we are actually a lot stronger than we think - its just a matter of pushing yourself further than you think you can. I wish I had a training partner, a spotter would really help.
Anyway, looking forward to have a great week - my goal is to do 3 weights and 6 cardio sessions this week! Happy Monday everyone!
