Not a whole lot new here.
On spring "break" for the week. getting back into my ultra clean diet- but including cheat meals every so often since i'm not preparing for a show. Still unable to do any leg stuff =( which I expected but it still sucks!! the other day I ran up my stairs, like an idiot, and realized just how week some of my hip muscles are. I was pretty sore for the rest of the day. won't be doing that again for awhile.

did tris and back today in the gym, felt pretty awesome!

oh man! what didn't I eat?!?!? lol! we went ther about 3 times while we were there. I had pumpkin ravioli a mint choco. shake the 1st night. I had country fried "steak" and a pb choco. cookie dough shake the next. and finally a huge awesome breakfast- tofu scramble with country fried "steak" and gravy with a side of french toast and a pb shake....


I weighed in yesterday at 142...could be worse, I want to be at 135ish next time I compete. instead of the 123 last time- at 5'8" thats just too thin!!!

Feeling super sore today =)

did tris and chest yesterday...and I did a whole body stretch routine (well what I was able to do with the lower half). realized I definitely need to do that every time I'm crazy tight all over and that wont help me progress!!

PT has been going good and my PT thinks I'm progressing . I'll be meeting with my Ortho later this month to check on my progression. Only think I can complain about is that my hip has been generally sore but it might just be the weird weather we've been having. Also, my glutes are insanely tight so I can't stretch my back the way I want and of course my hip...


Great news- I was given the go ahead to ride a regular upright (not recumbent) bike and was able to do 20 mins no problem! =) I did 10mins incline on a treadmill and realized that was a bad idea..

my husband and I are planning on cleaning out the basement a bit, so we can repoint the stone foundation... but on the plus side I plan on getting some cardio equipment so I can do extra cardio during competition season and watch tv =)

speaking of competing. I haven't thrown the idea of competing this year out, but I know it may not happen. I have found a trainer who will help me get back in the saddle once I'm given the go ahead. I know (unless of course the ortho says I need to do the surgery on the opposite side too) I will compete early next year!


ps.
Diet has been a bit better, but I still need to cut back on the cheat meals. I weighed in at 144lbs. I know I have added some muscle to my upper body, seeing results and gaining strength, but of course I've gained some body fat and lost some leg muscle =(

Maybe I'll post some full body progress photos just to keep me in check...

forgot to mention I signed up for a learn to row event here in Baltimore in June (right before we leave for the UK)- I've always wanted to row and thought it would be a great addition to my figure training.

sorry I've been MIA for a while. School is kicking my butt!!!! no worries though I'm still training fairly regularly though I have had to miss a few sessions to catch up with some of my schoolwork.

PT is going well and my therapist said I'm doing better than most people at this stage. I meet with my surgeon on Thursday. I'll keep ya posted.

yup, on the water, Ive always liked the Erg and the most fun I've ever had was rafting in a group so I've always wanted to try my hand at rowing- I'm super stoked about it! =)

Quick update*

I saw my surgeon last week and was given clearance to "test the waters" in the gym- basically start doing light leg stuff- limited ROM leg press no weight for now, extensions, that sort of thing. No squats still, but I can tell how weak I am so Its for the best really.

unfortunately, school has me beyond stressed out since I'm trying to get everything done I need to in order to graduate with my MA in 3 weeks. so the gym is on hold somewhat, essentially trying to go at least 1-2X's a week but worrying more about school stuff.

speaking of school- Baltimore VegFest will be held on my schools campus so that's exciting! =)
