I took a trip to Mom & Dad's in Maryland so they could meet their new granddaughter, so have been away for a bit. Now back in Michigan and rushing around doing last minute things for the wedding on Saturday. We decided we didn't care for the rings so we ordered in new ones coming via air. I don't see how that could possible go wrong with the wedding on Saturday
It took ALOT of mental control not to veer from the plan and become a cardio bunny to tryfit in a dress size pre-preg weight just because I want to look skinny on my wedding day (hey he is marrying me, so he gets me when I am building muscle, hee hee)! So still intaking calories, lots of protein and lifting heavy. Cardio is rare and only then it's a moderate pace at 20min.
What have I noticed? I am becoming much stronger than I have ever been. I'm very happy with this. My Fiance restores classic cars and hot rods, so on occassion he needs a second set of hands assisting or moving things like motors, hoods, car parts etc. I'm not sure I could have done it before. I was helping move stuff yesterday off a classic camero (sweet as heck!) and noticed how easy it was ..... even lifting and holding steady at an awkward height while final bolts were being removed.
With the lifting I could see how strong man type training would be very beneficial.
Anyhow, that being said, I have dropped more fat% (and thus some weight ... about another 5lbs). Since I am not doing cardio per se or cutting cals and am stronger .... I'm on track. If I start to drop weight quickly OR begin to lose strength, I'll up cals further.
Today: 3 sets of 8 reps
