Today was workout # 2 with Debbie....FANTASTIC! I think I actually told her that she was the devil at one point...but I meant it in a loving way! ;) Amber, thanks for getting me through that last set of jump squats and holds. I think I definitely had tears in my eyes during those last few holds. OW, OW, OW! Debbie, you are the BOMB! I can feel my legs and my body stiffening already and I LOVE IT! That feeling of KNOWING you are changing your body is amazing. What a feeling to have so much control over your own physicality!! And Debbie is such a great trainer - truly - she could train next to Charles Glass (the baddest trainer on the planet) and hold her own! She rocks.
I downloaded an ebook today (free) called the Ultimate Diet 2.0 which is the program developed by some of the first bodybuilders that figured out how to use ketosis cycles to shed more fat and preserve lean muscle through many months of manipulation and experimentation. I am going to read it tonight - I am sure it will be like most other eating plans that I read about - a lot of the same information rehashed - but maybe there will be a few nuggets of information I can work into my own eating plan. Today was my first day eating more fat - it was actually hard to do - mentally and physically but I want to give this increased fat thing a try to see how my body responds. I nailed my supplements as well! Woo hoo!
I also had a realization today that my friend Amber is a bad ass! She trains with Debbie 3x a week! I can only hope to reach that level of training at some point in the future!
Until next time!
