Well after a really terrible workout last Friday, I am back on track so far this week. I can’t stress enough how nice it is to have good workouts. A bad workout is just no good for anyone. Though I will admit that the two days in a row of juicing is kinda killing me. I just simply don’t get enough calories for two days straight. I’m getting headaches and feeling a little light headed. It’s really hard to run 4 miles and two heavy lifting days on less than a thousand calories over two days. So I think next week, I will be doing two separate days next week and I think by splitting those days i will feel a lot better overall especially during my workouts.
Well today marks the 10th Workout Wednesday which means it’s time for the 5 week lift update.

I’m pretty happy with the progress in the last 5 weeks. I feel really good about my strength gains. These last 5 weeks I have made some adjustments to my lifts and I am really close to increasing the weight again on a couple of different lifts. Part of my problem is that I am dealing with a limited amount of weight options, so In order to increase say my curls I would have to jump from 35 pound dumbbells to 55, because I have nothing in between. But I will just use plates this week so I can move up.
One thing that is slowing my progress even more is my concentration on being at a calorie deficit. I’m sure once I get my body weight to around 10% I will look into starting to bulk some more and I should start seeing some awesome strength gains again after that. I am super excited to do that too because bulking season is the best. Just lifting heavy as hell and eating a ton of food. Sounds like heaven to me!
Well that’s all I have for today’s update. Thank you to all who are following along on my fitness journey! I’m loving the progress and the journey. It’s a cool process and I am learning a ton along the way. That’s all till Friday Folks. Keep Grinding!
You’re not getting any younger.
