Starving; 3 perfect days; Strict vacation is just what I needed.
I woke up this morning feeling as if I were starving to death! Thankfully today is back/biceps day, and that is the one day of the week I get enjoy a little extra food (complete cutting diet can be found here). I can’t wait to tear into my roasted red potatoes and egg whites.
Yesterday was another excellent momentum building day! All my meals were eaten on plan and on time, and I got my cardio in. I also was not bothered by work, so it was a much more relaxing day than the first day of my vacation turned out to be.
This is quite a departure from how I normally spend my vacations. Typically when I’m on holiday I don’t update this site, I indulge in foods that I normally would not eat and I also like to enjoy drinks on most evenings. I think my decision to do pretty much the exact opposite of my normal vacation “routine” was a very wise choice this time around. I am feeling empowered by how strict I’ve been this week, and I can already tell that this discipline is (as I suspected) exactly what I need right now.
I have a feeling that when I return to work next Wednesday I’m going to feel much more relaxed and at peace than I would have if I’d spent my week off drinking and eating junk food. It really helps to be in tune to your body and mind – even (especially) if they are telling you that it’s time to take the more difficult path.
My legs and chest are still very, very sore. Thankfully that soreness won’t affect today’s back/biceps workout (well, for the most part – my legs will protest the backyard Farmers Walks). Anyway, I’m really looking forward to another day of rest punctuated by an absolutely brutal training session this afternoon.
I’d better get my breakfast going before I chew my own arm off. Have a great day!
