This gaining bull crap is enough! Last night we did Supreme 90's Back and Bi's. Lord am I feeling it today. To feed our muscles afterward we had salmon and asparagus for dinner. I also bought some light Silk chocolate milk for a little protein boost right after strength workouts while waiting for the protein packed salmon to be done. I want to really look at how to optimize when we eat to compliment our workouts and see if that makes a difference. This week is going to be more pure cardio not the whole "hey, lets break our bodies until we must hobble instead of walk." While that is challenging and sometimes fun, it's not doing me much good if I'm exhausted and feel broken. I mean when 2 rest days in a row still don't give you enough time to heal up, there's a problem. You need to be smart about your program even if it's not the path you were hoping to take. As much as I want to be a plyo warrior right now, the bod is saying no so I'm going to listen instead of trying to beat it into submission. Obviously I'm keeping my calorie burn at the normal 4200-4600 calories per week and I need to focus on staggering the calories.
Tonight is Turbo Fire and I'm looking forward to it. I need to remember to get my water in because I wasn't great at it over the weekend. I really do hate having to analyze every single move I make and piece of food going into my pie hole right now but I'm going to have to suck it up and go with it. I'm just so damn tired of all of this and I feel like a hamster in a wheel going nowhere. I've got too much I want to do to stay stagnant.
When your program stalls, how do you shake it up?
