I did well in the gym this week. On Monday, I got in 3 sets of 6 pullups each where I usually do 1 set of 6 reps and the rest are 4-5 reps. Almost all of my lifts felt easier. Leg day on Tuesday felt crappy though, for some reason it feels as if my strength is getting weaker, contrary to what I believed would happen if I cut out cardio. My usual squat weight felt impossibly heavy. On Friday (leg day yet again) I felt super crap!! I wanted to leave after my 5 minute warmup! I had no energy, I was emotional and frustrated for an unknown reason and I just wanted to go home. I suck it up and finished my workout, I didn’t stretch as usual though.
This was a great week, no binging, no excessive over calorie intakes and no cardio lol! My weight was mostly stable although I did not do cardio on Tuesday as I normally do. My weigh ins were as follow: Monday- 59.8 kg ; Wednesday- 59.9 kg ; Thursday- 59.9 kg ; Friday- either 60.2 / 60.7 kg or something else, I forgot to log my weight and my memory sucks!
I hit my numbers quite well, if I went over protein, I decreased the same amount of carbs so that my calorie intake will still be the same. I did not track or weigh myself the entire weekend, Friday to Sunday. I enjoyed time with friends in the bush, I didn’t pre-pack any food, I probably went slightly over fats and carbs and didn’t have nearly enough protein. I did not binge but I also did not say no to ice cream or chips!
