ok, ok, ok.
it is time to shake things up a bit. they dreary grey portland weather is starting to disappear, and thus should my crap-tastic mood.
i am starting a whole new training routine for the first time in a long time and i'm pretty excited about it. in the past 1-2 years, i have gained a HUGE amount of strength. i get it-i'm strong now. awesome. now i want to lean out. plain and simple. and i'm willing to lose a little muscle to do so. I'm tired (more than tired) of counting macros ad nauseum and walking on a treadmill for hours on end.
I NEED VARIETY!
I think part of my backslide in fitness was from sheer boredom. Well, I'm going to be doing a new kind of routine that focuses less on super heavy weights (GASP!) and more on conditioning-which i could desperately use. my muscle tone my suffer a bit but my heart'll thank me.
I'll be incorporating plyos, tubing, yoga, running, etc (basically all of this stuff i havent allowed myself to do for quite sometime now) in the hopes of not just achieving this "ideal" physique, but also for my health.
I do not currently have the willpower to eat a strict bodybuilders cutting diet-and maybe some day i will again,but im done trying to kid myself at this moment in time, so i'll up my aerobic activity and see what happens. can't hurt right?
i am going to work more on intuitive eating because i have follwed a clock and a food scale for so long that i dont even know what my body wants anymore-so fuck it. i'm not gonna go crazy or anything and i will still take in a high amount of protein, but goddammit if i want a mango at 9pm--i'm doin it. watch out world-she's gone plum mad.
so wish me luck and i will be posting more frequently and possibly (drum roll please) posting pictures in the near future--ONLY IF PEOPLE PROMISE TO BE NICE!
I'm flying out in less than 24 hours to meet up with mah boys in arizone and fingerpaint their rock-hard bodies with dream tan......can i get a yeah buddy?
oh-its so hard to be me.
