Weight:

Training:
LOL...My training ended up quite differently than what I originally planned...After the 3 classes I ended up doing back-to-back in the morning, I decided NOT to lift weights, which would have been my "Bonus Day"---

Muay Thai Kickboxing class
Zumba class
Boot Camp class

Nutrition:
Given the training I did in the morning, I increased my carbs quite a bit for the day...I don't want to lose any weight, especially lean body weight!

2/4/12:

I haven't managed to post here for the past few days. It's been an extremely busy week for me! And on top of everything else, I had a migraine, which put me even more behind. I missed two workouts, and basically had no water or nutrition the day of the migraine. I don't get them very often. But when I do, all I can do is take anti-nausea medication (which, thankfully, knocks me out) and sleep it off. Along with the severe pain, I get nausea, extreme sensitivity to light, and my vision (if I could open my eyes to see) is reduced to tunnel vision. I lost 4.6 lbs in one day. :( While my weight was higher this morning, it's still below the 114ish I had been at for the week prior. As of this morning, I still have a residual headache. But thankfully, it's ONLY a headache.

Okay, I'm done with the negativity. Today is a new day. And I'm going to make it an amazing and productive one (after I stand on my head for 5 minutes to try to make this headache go away) :)
