Yesterday I came to the conclusion that I am not the type of person who can say I am going to eat “clean” and then lose weight. I NEED A PLAN! (Right now BJ is giving me a big “Told you SO!” look). For maintaing my weight I can do that, but not for my goal of leaning out. So I put together my plan of eating very low carbohydrates during the week and then giving myself 1-2 days on the weekend to re-feed. It is quite extreme, but right now that is what I need.
For the next 9 days (starting today) I am going to basically be eating protein and green veggies. This is what is called the “Priming Phase”. This normally should be around 2 weeks, but next weekend we have our big 150 mile bike ride, and I am going to need to eat some carbs. This should really help me reach my goals. Will I be crabby? YES! Will I be craving sugar? YES! Will it be worth it? HELL YES!!!!!
Here is what I did for my workout today…
Snatch workout w/ 12kg KB
1 min rest
Did this for 30 min. On my last set, I tore a bliste on my R hand. I think it is because I haven’t really worked my snatches for a long time. I don’t think it will affect my workouts for the next couple of days.
30 min of riding my bike inside. Easy spin, just to do extra work and get my butt used to the seat.
I work tonight so I am hoping I am really busy and run around a lot…makes the time go by quicker.
