I crashed yesterday – hard. I felt tired, lethargic and weak. My brain was in a fog and I couldn’t think. I was feeling depressed and irritable. I did some posing in front of the mirror and thought my muscles looked flat and I looked small. The last remaining fat around my mid-section seemed to stand out more than ever. Overall, I honestly thought I looked better a month ago. After how hard I’ve worked this month, this put me in an even worse mood. I started to question why I bother, and what was the point of all my hard work if this was how I was going to look…

I was very tempted to go on a massive junk food binge. Instead of doing something stupid like that, I decided to contact Mastover and ask for his advice. His reply started off like this: “The PM you just sent me indicates that you are right where you need to be, both mentally and physically.” That caught me off guard, but I know he’s been in this spot countless times, so I read on with interest…

I’m glad I didn’t break my diet or give up. After discussing what I’m going through with Mastover I feel much better – especially because Dr. Mastover prescribed CARBS and STEAK! Yep, for the next two days I finally am going to get a break from nonstop cod, and I’m also going to get some carbs! I’m not going to bother to enter this into my spreadsheet, but I will make a note of my diet for today and tomorrow in my food log, along with a link to this update. Starting Friday I’ll resume my posted diet.

Here’s my diet for today and tomorrow:

WEDNESDAY
Meal #1: 6 oz steak, 5 egg whites, 1 grapefruit
Meal #2: 6 oz chicken, 1 cup broccoli
Meal #3: 6 oz steak, 1 grapefruit
Meal #4: 3/4 cup oatmeal (measured before cooking), 5 oz sweet potato, 3 egg whites
Meal #5: 1 medium banana, 1/2 cup oatmeal, 4 oz chicken
Meal #6: 1 medium banana, 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 grapefruit, 10 Mass Aminos

THURSDAY
Meal #1: 1 cup oatmeal, 1 medium banana, 3 oz chicken
Meal #2: 6 oz sweet potato, 1 medium banana, 3 oz chicken
Meal #3: 6 oz steak, 1 grapefruit
Meal #4: 6 oz steak, 1 grapefruit
Meal #5: 6 oz steak, 1 grapefruit
Meal #6: 6 oz steak, 1 grapefruit, 3 tbsp nat. peanut butter

I knew getting down to 6% body fat would be a huge physical and mental test, and so far it has been. I feel like I am a very disciplined person, and my mental toughness is one of my strongest assets. So, even though I knew this would be a very challenging endeavor, I have been caught off guard by some of the insecurities and doubt that have crept up as I’ve progressed. I didn’t expect this sort of doubt at this stage of the game, and it’s proven to be one of the most difficult tests for me to pass.

I’m going to go get my cardio done so I can get to work on some of this food!!
