February was kinda rough. The month started with one of my boy's birthdays (read this as a week of cake in the house) and ended with the other boy's birthday (a few days worth of cupcakes in the house and oreos... and Easter candy). In between all the junk food I had the stomach flu which resulted in not eating, and then eating only carbohydrates as I recovered and missing some workouts. So I haven't felt much like posting pics or putting the pink suit on at all! Today a friend asked for updates so I thought even if I have only minor progress to share, it is still that, progress. I am still training hard, getting stronger and enjoying my workouts. That is something to be proud of. It is challenging, but I haven't given up and I won't. I will see this through to competition and I hope to continue beyond that!
My weight has remained about the same. I am currently 120lbs. I can see better definition in my abs as well as my upper arms. I like the little changes in my legs and my shoulders. I have changed my training program a bit. I will share more workout details and recipes next week. Until then I hope you are inspired to join my in a fitness class or find a new clean eating recipe. If there is anything specific you would like to know about my training or eating please ask!
A tip for this week: Drink that protein shake shortly before working out or just after. Make sure it is one designed to be easily assimilated by your muscles for growth and refueling. This helps build the lean muscle we want and assists with recovery.
