because of the state of my post-op wound, i haven’t been able to workout hard, like at all. I just got the “okay” to start taking light walks, nothing too vigorous. and i’m going to get back onto my planking/arms (still can’t lie back, therefore no traditional abs just yet.)
overall i’ve been really frustrated. and i know that i need this time to recover (trying to do too much already got me re-infected once -__-), but i want to get back on track! i’ve been maintaining the same weight for like three weeks now!
tomorrow, just to keep myself on track, i’ll go back to posting my food intake! sorry for not being the inspiration that you guys love, i just need this time to heal. that way i can be back to a true fitblr:(
getting my stitches out today!
which meannnnssss: BACK TO WORKING OUT! i’ve seriously had so much pent up energy that i NEED to expend. who would’ve thought. also, my weight finally evened out from the meds.
that was not a fun time, but i’m back to normal (2 pounds to go till i hit one of my GWs! i’m still going for a solid 150 before college, 135 ultimate.)
can you tell by the amount of caps that i’m pretty psyched. BUILD THAT MUSCLE! (can’t wait to get back to lifting, my arms need it xD)
so i haven’t been able to work out in about a week because of surgery (got a cyst removed), and the prescription cocktail they have me on is making me so dehydrated! no matter how much water i drink, i seem to be retaining it all! the scale says i went up 3 pounds in two days! ugh.
i know that this’ll be figured out once i’m off the pills, but i’m just a little miffed. no real working out for another week or so. i’m going to get in my planks and arm workouts, but my legs are going to have to wait.
I am 3 lbs away from seeing the 150s on my scale.
I know it’s just a number, but obviously running and clean eating is getting me some real results. Absolutely ecstatic! Going to start implementing more weight training again to carve out more muscle!
a note on will power:
Tomorrow is my long-awaited graduation. So like many people we have family over, and the grill’s all ablaze. Instead of saying yes to potatoes and steak with sauce and toppings, I chose grilled veggies (2 servings) and maybe 2 oz (at most) of the steak (really marinated, heavy in calories for even a tiny bit).
This is how I know that I’ve definitely made progress. I said “no.” me, myself, and I are the only ones involved in this journey, and it’s taken a looooong time to figure this out. Staying strong, guys(:
progress is beautiful.
