And then we weighed in yesterday.
I've started losing muscle. We did another weigh in this morning just to be sure it wasn't a fluke (it wasn't) and now we're rerouting. Adding protein and calories, reducing HIIT. We're so close that at this point it's really all about the fine-tuning. This isn't a big deal. It's just time to reroute.
Today's changes were: no fasted cardio in the a.m., removing HIIT from my evening cardio, and adding a bit more protein. I did back/biceps/shoulders this morning, and in a bit I'll return to do my 45 minutes steady state on the stair master. I'll follow that with 20 minutes in the dry sauna, then shower and go do my posing session (1 hour). I should be home by 10pm. Thankfully, I had a chunk of time mid-day to get my errands run... I'm now fully stocked for carb day ;-) FRUIT!!! I also have a gluten free & dairy free frozen pizza to try out... we'll see. If that fails, I've got lots of sweet potatoes and white potatoes to play with.
The manager was not there, someone else was and she was... chatty and distracted, I think that's a nice way of saying it. The end of the story is that I couldn't see the clock, but I am fairly certain that I was not locked in that box for the agreed upon 7 minutes. If I was, that was the longest 7 minutes of my life and resulted in a fabulous (not) burn over most of my body and lovely (not) white stripes down my sides. To say that I am upset is... accurate. I now have to wait for this burn to go away before I can go back, which endangers getting the tan I needed by the event. Bah! Boooh!
And yes... I know all about the dangers of indoor tanning. Enough said.
So, back to the event... it's going to be a bit of a schedule pretzel, but it'll be fun! At this point, I think I'll be doing my cardio afterwards at the hotel... while everyone else is partying, lol. We're staying overnight, so all my food has to come with. On the fun side, I get to dress up a bit! Yay for being girly, lol! Makeup, hair, shoes that aren't sneakers! Woot!
It's been forever since we've really taken any vacation, let alone by ourselves! In fact, I can't even remember the last time we got away for more than a day or two completely alone. As far as we're concerned, it'll be perfect if we never even speak to another soul the whole time! Hahaha! Seriously though, we're looking forward to the break, the couple-time, just to relax and de-stress. Ahhhh!
Then, once we return, we'll be packing up Shiloh and helping her move back to San Diego because her hubby is coming home!!!! Cross your fingers, it looks like his deployment will end at the end of September. :-) We've missed him so much! It'll be fantastic to have him home! Of course, I'm going to have major Mommy-withdrawals with Shi moving back to CA, but they'll be back and forth for visits :-)
Carbs - they're good for your brain.
Just sayin'. ;-)
We're nearly there, folks! 2 1/2 weeks from the ANBC show, and 4 1/2 weeks from the NPC!
