Ok so very rough day.... I spent half the afternoon and most of the evening in the emergency room. Guess all the problems I have been having the past couple days is due to bowel spasms????? and the doctor sent me home with prescriptions. Don't know if I want to take them since I am sure they aren't vegan friendly at all. I am caught in a catch 22...

Breakfast
14 oz green monster

Snack
3/4c Uncle Sam wheat flakes and flaxseed cereal
6 oz rice milk

Lunch
1 ezekiel tortilla
1 field roast apple sage link
1/2c mashed pinto beans
1/2c mashed sweet potatoes
10 brussels sprouts

Supper
LARGE bowl of grape nuts and rice milk

After lunch my stomach went into a total chaotic gut wrenching pain.... Needless to say I did not make it to the gym and I am completely annoyed

Hi Nancy! Your chest and bic's workout is awesome! Keep up the great work and hard training! I love it!

I know you're staying away from gluten- do you know if the korean bbq sauce has gluten in it? A lot of those sauces do- might be trigger on the stomach ache. Soy sauce and a lot of dressings have gluten in them- unfortunately. Just a thought!

Hi there! I love your tri work! For women- having toned tri's takes a lot of dedication and work but makes a ton of difference especially in comp! I love me some skullcrushers! Get's the job done!

I love that you save room for a nice treat (the lemon cookie)- I always like to have something to look forward to like that. You really look forward to it and savor it!

Hope your stomach is on board with your training plans today and you're feeling great! Have a wonderful Friday!

So today started out fantastic but by lunchtime turned to pot. No gym time today although I did make it to the gym for yoga but couldn't leave daycare stranded with no one to sit with the kids so I volunteered.

Breakfast
8 oz green monster
1 packet instant maple raisin oatmeal

Snack
1/2 cinnamon oatmeal

Lunch
5 roasted brussels sprouts
1 potato cut into wedges and baked
8 apsaragus spears roasted
1 serving lentil vegetable soup

Probably to much food but I was really hungry. Needless to say the pain and nausea set in. I did go to the emergency room where I was actually treated better but still got the same results none.... The doctor was stumped but gave me a referral to see a GI doctor at least. Just hope we can work out payment arrangements........ Tomorrow come hell or high water I will eat a cinnamon roll, do turbo kick AND get my leg workout in! Hell I might even throw in some bicep and shoulder!!Got me some different nausea meds and a pain pill not that I really want them but if it means keeping food down I will do it.

Mind doesn't control the body. It can guide it, but the body has the last word. So listen. . . . .
Fitness isn't just about doing exercises, and making your body do things it doesn't want to do. It is about listening and getting to know your body. Knowing what it is capable of, and using the mind to figure out ways to safely get there (guiding it).
Does your comment sounds like you are listening to your body and safely getting it there?

I did listen to it today and cardio didn't make it happy so I slowed it down and it was happy. I waited till evening to do my weights and once I did the first rep it was happy. I don't think I pushed myself to hard but I did a good workout.

Turbokick (low intensity) 50 mins
Leg press 2 sets 235 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 270 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 315 lbs 13 reps, 4 sets 340 lbs 12 reps (was feeling really good and this felt even better)
Sumo squat 4 sets 50 lbs 15 reps, 4 sets 60 lbs 15 reps
Stiff leg deadlift 2 sets 60 lbs 15 reps, 4 sets 70 lbs 15 rps
Seated calf raise 2 sets 90 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 100 lbs 15 reps, 4 sets 110 lbs 15 reps
Crossbody hammer curl 2 sets 12 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 15 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 20 lbs 15 reps
Overhead press 6 sets 40 lbs 15 reps
Cable bicep curl 2 sets 30 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 40 lbs 12 reps, 2 sets 50 lbs 10
Reverse flye 2 sets 20 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 30 lbs 12 reps, 2 sets 40 lbs 10 reps
Front raise 2 sets 8 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 10 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 12 lbs 15 reps

After my workout I felt like I hadn't missed a workout. I feel really good just taking it easy on the food. I added probiotics to help my digestive tract. Ready to see what tomorrow brings :)
