Whew, 2 weeks out - getting to it! Finally got some pictures up! Been crazy busy so I haven't been hitting my cardio and posing as consistently as I'd like - usually once a day lately for 30min for cardio and posing about 3 times last week, but I did do 1hr incline walk on the treadmill twice this week before breakfast so I'm doing what I can with my schedule! Not as tight as I'd like to be but I'm getting noticeably leaner now and I'm reducing my sodium this week so should be a big difference! I've been drinking 5 to 6 liters of water (about 1.5 gallons) a day, so I think dropping sodium should pull some water out and make me look tighter. This is quite a bit more water than I had during my last prep, but I've noticed staying super hydrated has made a huge difference keeping my strength up! Training has been going great. This week was a low volume, heavy weight week and I did some good numbers for being tired and hungry!
