That has been my downfall lately. My family has been going on a pizza binge for the past two nights, and making bread on the weekends. Argh! So hard when the tastebuds are screaming at you to eat it, and your tummy keeps grumbling and cheering the mouth on to bite into just one little bite. . . But since I haven't lost any weight, my brain answers with an authoritative NO!

It is when you have lost 2 or 4 lbs, and the brain wavers just a little = let the faceplanting begin! complete with the EB buttery spread coming out of the frig! So weak willled this past weekend. But I am strong today. At this moment at least. . . LOL. Hang in there! See it as trash for your body, which it is. Need some nice almonds in your pocket sandwich baggy to nibble on instead. . .

The peanut butter almost didn't make it the night but was to sleepy to do any damage except a tablespoon of it

Ok didn't have a nap cause I went to yoga and needless to say after yoga my stomach was making some loud noises... I had some red lentil "soup" (wasn't soup but was soupy) and ended up having 2 waffles on top of that. My stomach stopped making noises and didn't feel the need to dive into the chocolate, candy, chips, cookies, poptarts or anything else to tide me over till lunch. As much as I love my 2 a days I am looking forward to tomorrow's total rest day!!!! No getting up early, no going to the gym, just me my meals and resting :) Halfway through last exercise all the other ones snuck up on me and wow did my shoulders come alive!! Been rubbing them ever since and I will be hiring my sister to massage them tomorrow on my rest day. Will buy her lunch on payday as payment. Kinda thinking I might go track down a baseball outside in the toy chest and rub it along my shoulder blades! Yeah I am feeling pretty tight back there....I feel like a total mess today with cramps, tight muscles and unending hunger :/

AM cardio: upright bike lvl 7 random program 20 min and 55 min yoga

Shoulders
Dumbbell shoulder press: 20 lbs 15 reps, 25 lbs 12 reps, 2 sets 30 lbs 10 reps

Rear delt fly machine: 60 lbs 15 reps, 70 lbs 12 reps, 2 sets 80 lbs 10 reps
Arnold Press: 4 sets 20 lbs 15 reps

Is it bad that my rest day is turning into a refeed day????? I laid down to warm up with my pups and snoozed well woke up from nap and felt like I had never had breakfast!! So turning my rest day into a refeed and will take it easy so I don't burn to many calories so that my body can use said calories to repair cause ouch it needs it

Today is total cardio day for me. Will be spotting my buddy today then we will go do low intensity cardio. Going to try to relax on my only day off this week. Probably won't eat much cause well when I am home I forget to eat lol. Surprisingly my dogs let me sleep in till almost 7!!! Liked that a lot. I think my body was exhausted cause I was in bed by 10p I do believe

Ok so last night my knee felt a lil tweeked so I put a tiger balm patch on cause well this morning was quads and knew that I wasn't going to go entirely easy on myself. I do plan on icing my knee today and resting as much as possible cause Wednesday is glutes and hams... Knee still feels a tweeked but once I started lifting it actually helped it a bit. I didn't push my knee past its ROM so that helped. Trainer at the gym (not my trainer) was being a nosey lil idiot about my water jug....

Cardio: 20 min lvl 6 weight loss program elliptical

Quads
Leg extension: 2 sets 75 lbs 15 reps, 90 lbs 12 reps, 2 sets 105 lbs 10 reps
Squat: 95 15 lbs, 2 sets 115 lbs 15 reps, 135 lbs 10 reps, 155 lbs 10 reps, 185 lbs 10 reps
Leg press: 180 lbs 15 reps, 270 lbs 15 reps, 360 lbs 15 reps, 410 lbs 10 reps, 430 lbs 10 reps, 450 lbs 10 reps (that one was for you Gaia!!!!)

On the leg press I didn't go all the way down cause my feet were at the bottom of the plate and my knee wasn't allowing full ROM not to mention the heavier it got I kept it between the locks just in case my knee decided it wasn't having anymore of it. I did do a set with my feet in the middle of the plate at 450 lbs and got a little bit better ROM so will be excited to see what my feet at the top of the plate brings!!!
