Sounds heavenly to me!

See if it gives you more ompf in your workouts! Fats like in peanut butter, should make your energy level even out and make you last longer as you exercise (so your body can keep up with your mind that wants to do one more set of something ^.^).

I can say my body responds better to higher fat foods. My true test was the close grip smith machine bench press at 60 lbs not including the smith machine which they think is about 35 lbs. I thought for sure I would have put on some weight so far this week so I took a little peeksee WRONG! I lost 4 tenths of a pound and I still have today and the weekend before i weight in...... I know it isn't healthy but I can actually lose weight by eating nothing but chips and salsa. I prefer peanut butter now of course. I just finished off the cinnamon raisin swirl so I need to get more. It is perfect in oatmeal and I have white chocolate and dark chocolate peanut butters for throughout the day. I figure a tsp here and there won't hurt me to much and helps relieve my stress when it spikes up. But I also have increased my Acai and blueberry green tea intake. instead of 1 cup I am now drinking 2 or 3. I get to test the fat theory again today. Supposed to do leg press but actually get to go heavy since it isn't super high reps. I am hoping to see if I can still lift 360 lbs but my goal is to do 370 lbs. So I am taking a vega pre workout energizer and peanut butter before I hit legs. Will let you know how I feel :)

Vega pre-workout Energizer - Acai berry or the Lemon lime flavor?

I have the Acai berry one. My partner likes the Lemon lime better.

Was a really good day. Feeling really strong and focused. I made a goal for myself today, leg press 370 lbs and I nailed it. I had to reach deep and pull out my go to song, Frayed Ends of Sanity remake by Six Feet Under. That song assist me with any set I need to push through. Some days I feel like I am insane for doing what I do. Planning a cheat for next weekend. I am thinking it is going to be peanut butter cream pie! I am tired tonight and have to work tomorrow. 6 day work weeks are starting to catch up with me again and I don't like it. Tomorrow looks to be back, biceps, and abs. Going to be a rough day but always up for my challenge!!!!!

Oh was trying to do wall assisted handstand... didn't happen sadly but I did practice forearm stands which lead to scorpion pose. I wasn't feeling scorpion pose but the arm stand felt fantastic!

when you start to look good, the creeps just come out of nowhere and smile and compliment you. I just smile and say thank you, and with no eye contact, go about my business (in the opposite direction! ^.^ ).

*sigh* the scale didn't move for me this week. Yeah a little disappointed but not the end of the world. Mom asked me what I had cooking in the slow cooker I said beans and she turned her nose up and said oh. That look was priceless hahahahaha. Think I am going to throw in an extra biceps day. Starting to see some change in it and now want to give them some extra attention. Love the look of some nice guns ;)
