Not liking gluten free living... I love all the foods that contain gluten a lot and the adjustment is taking longer than expected. Just trying to fuel my body with what it is craving right now as long as it is gluten free. Oh and will spread some mock tuna on celery for some healthy fats in my meal. My workouts are the only thing keeping me going right now because I know that my goal is getting closer with every lift.

I have been gluten free for 4 years now, once you get into the habit and stop thinking of gluten products as 'food' it is easy.

It is a big adjustment for me and I am trying. Think my biggest adjustment is no more PB sandwiches!!

Peanut butter peanut butter is cool, depends on your goals :) I guess the sandwich context limits the amount one eats, and I can totally wreck a whole jar as part of my post workout meal.

Foot feeling a little better today and noticed a bruise so will go light on calves and focus more on slow focused reps. Cardio will be step mill or elliptical whichever one looks more inviting to punishment lol!!! Have my issue of Off the Couch from Oxygen magazine to help push me through cardio today. Cell phone charged up for Spotify radio wish I could afford to pay for it so I can listen to what I want to instead of just the radio.

Gym felt awesome this morning!!! Really glad I didn't punk out like my buddy hahaha. Cardio felt the best and probably should have gone longer but oh well. Was feeling a bit shaky even after my protein shake so probably wise I didn't push for longer cardio.

Cardio: 20 min step mill 18:40 min manual lvls 5-7 interval style 1:20 lvl 2 kickbacks (gotta work the glutes ;) )

Calves, abs, forearms
Seated calf raise: 3 sets 45 lbs 20 slow reps
Standing calf raise: 3 sets 60 lbs 20 slow reps
Barbell wrist curl: 20 lbs 15 reps, 2 sets 30 lbs 15 reps
DB reverse wrist curl: 3 sets 5 lbs 15 reps
Bosu crossover: 3 sets 6 lbs 20 reps each side
Hanging leg raises: 3 sets 20 reps (last set I did them on the dip bars which felt way harder because I probably had to balance myself)
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

Black beans and rice were fantastic!!! I added some salsa to the rice while it cooked and mixed in some artichoke spinach dip that I made into the beans and it is like a fiesta in my mouth!!!! My crustless pumpkin pie is yum too!!!

What brought the ankle pain on, nothing to do with the calf training? Hope it's nothing too serious.

Much planned for the weekend?

Not sure what brought it on but was hurting yesterday. Plans for the weekend include possibly if my ankle feels better will be running training, job hunting, and try to figure out how I am going to afford my birthday dinner.

My friends and I are going out for sushi. I have mad money set aside and might see if I can sell a wrap, shawl and blanket. My dinner is the same day as your meet :)
