Weekend Recap & Today's Food

What a weekend! Friday was crazy. Saturday was wild. Along with the workout & video, I did 2 cardio sessions and grocery shopping. Sunday was rest day (oh, thank the gods!). I started the day with Food Prep  & baking, then Bethany flew home - YAY!!!  So we drove to the airport to pick her up. As we began walking into the terminal, I had to tell Bill he had 2 options - Slow Down! or Carry Me! I was crashed & trashed. My legs were exhausted and all I wanted to do was lay down. Crazy! Leaving the airport, we snacked (Bethany was so thrilled to have access to "real" food again! They had lived on - literally - fast food the whole trip), then ran some errands and finally made it home. Back home, I finished up the Food Prep for the week, the laundry, and then crashed again. The kids went all their different directions, and Bill and I watched Unknown (love Liam Neeson!). I ate my protein ice cream and was OUT.

This morning was Chest day and another high/low in my training. More than once I was a weepy mess. Oy. So grateful that Tab knows what I'm going through (haha, even when I don't) and can put up with me. We've upped my cardio this week, and next week step into the next phase of the diet. I'm not gonna lie. I'm scared. But I'm not stopping. 6 weeks to go.

  1. that word "stopping" shouldn't even be in your vocabulary, woman!! :) There is NO stopping you! You're doing great, keep it up! :)

  2. Hi Chelle, how many calories are you consuming while you're training? what is your normal calorie count when you're off season?

  3. are you eating every 2 hours or every 2.5-3 hours? I noticed that your calorie count is different every day?

  4. At this phase, I'm at 1400 calories in, with a ratio goal of 50% protein, 30% fat, 20% carbs. That's really, really low for my activity level, and is simply part of the fat-cutting process of competition training. Were I to be doing my normal lifestyle, I'd be between 1900 and 2000 calories/day, so this is really low.
    I eat every 2 hours during the day, then dinner is a bit later, then 2 hours later is my last snack. The counts are a little different each day since I try to mix up my foods a bit to keep from getting bored... chicken, fish, steak, eggs, protein powder, etc. Lots of options :-)

  5. Cinnammon sounds awesome! Cant wait to try this new recipe out. I loved the chicken loaves by the way. Even my family liked them!
