Someone does not eat lunch in front of you or with you all of the time and they happen to be ‘fit’ ‘slim’ ‘tiny’ etc. doesn’t mean they don’t eat.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, you need to actually eat food and lots of it to make physical visible gains.
Not even joking, DOMS from this morning’s new workout is already setting in. I’m in trouble tomorrow morning LOL.
Eating before I lift always helps me. Protein is always a great option. Doesn’t have to be right before but at least an hour before. Make gainz!
Who’s training today? List what you’re training..3, 2, 1 …go!
Well, it’s been a week since I have been back in town, back at work and trying to get myself back into a routine. It hasn’t been easy to say the least because every day there has been errands to do plus work plus meal prep, gym etc. But I am getting there! I have had a pretty relaxing week when it comes to the gym, not overly intense but just right. Same with nutrition, I have been eating healthy but have been also enjoying some food that hasn’t been in my plan. Now it’s time to pull it all together before too many not so ideal habits form and get going. Although there isn’t anything major coming up Fitness Model-wise I still need to keep on top of my game. Yes, it’s hard at times to give it 90-100% at the gym 5-6 days a week plus be consistent with my meal prep but it has to be done in order to maintain the gains I have made this past year but especially since the summer. It’s just what it is. You can’t expect to reach your goals and then throw your hands up and ‘take a break’ long term because you WILL lose your gains. It’s hard work but that’s what’s involved if you’re constantly trying to make improvements. Breaks ARE okay and ‘mistakes’ ARE okay but you have to try your best to be mindful and on top of things before you slip too far. If you slip too far (which this has happened to me in the past) then it’s really hard to break through and earn those gains. It’s not impossible, just challenging. I find maintenance harder than competition prep but that’s okay because it gives me something to practice.
Have a great day everyone!
