and so it begins….again!

DAY 1!!

Today starts my journey to my next fitness challenge.  WBFF stage!

I’m super scared and super determined to train harder than ever before.  My recent issues with hormone shifts and body not responding as quickly as before has thrown my focus into a spiraling mess.

I’m done with all of that and moving right along.  I find that I do best when I give myself a “finish line” and push to meet my goals.  What did that consist of today?  Let me tell you;

I began my day with my eating plan and it was a good day to do so.  Protein Pancakes for me!! Super happy girl for sure! (and I’m already dreading the no carb days later down the road and trying to stay focused on the here and now)

The meals were actually pretty AWESOME….and then I went to the gym.

I’m never one for doing a half-assed workout but OMG!! This was just insane.  Legs circuit training from HELL! I ended up on the floor; gasping for air during the final 3 sets of the workout.  1 1/2 hours in and I was finally done.

Dripping sweat.

Barely dragging my wringed out body out of the gym.

Good news: one of the trainers wished me well on my way out the door and said, “You train INTENSE!!!”

Made me smile.

I did have to stop and get some groceries to finish the day’s meals off right.  Then I figured I would get in a cardio session in the cycle class tonight.  Wasn’t as good as other ones but it got the job done.

I’m done.

For today, anyway!
