Today I was slammed with work...NON-STOP worked for 2 hours before bed last night and then another 1.75 hours in the am (got up at 5am) BEFORE I got to the office and didn't leave until 7pm tonight. I only got in a lunch lift so today will be my planned rest day - no cardio. I am also going to carb up before I go to bed tonight with oats and a half a sweet potato. I have been feeling really lethargic and it feels like my body is reacting more negatively to the low calories than I had originally thought. So by adding a couple carb up meals a week and supplementing with flax seed oil and omega -3's my body should release some fat. Now, while I am bummed I didn't do cardio today, I also have to be realistic and allow my body to rest. I did eat clean all day (maybe not enough but clean).
Here is a pic of Jenny Lynn - my hero. She is amazing. This is her back stage before her victory (again) at the Olympia. I have pictures of her all over my house (pantry, computer, etc.) and they help me stay motivated on my ultimate goal. I subscribe to her forum and she is so dedicated to her ultimate goal. She is taking off a full year before the Olympia in 2008. Most competitors do multiple shows but she doesn't want to take a chance at losing mass.
This weekend will be full of cardio and lifts! Can't wait (wow, did I say that out loud).
Peace out y'all!
