Let me be honest. I was hangry. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, check this post.
This week was rough. It was quite an adjustment to having no carbs. mostly for the fruit but a little bit because I am a snack addict.
I love weight training! I really like doing new things and although I’ve lifted some throughout this whole crossfit-ish gym membership its been fun to learn new things. I also like it because I feel like growing up I never thought of lifting being a thing that girls did, unless they were body builders. It just seems so hard core! I want to be like that!
I have also confirmed with myself in my mind that I don’t like being pushed but it definitely keeps me from progressing as much as I should. Thats why its good to have gym friends! They push you in funny/sarcastic/mocking ways and then you feel like you may die but at least you’re with friends!
I will say that I have felt this week like new muscles were transplanted into my body that I have never noticed before in my life. I only know this because they hurt really badly! I knew I had something called a hamstring, but in all of my working out and squats and wall balls, I’ve only ever had my quads hurt. Not now! It is allllll hamstrings. I could barely put my emergency brake on in my car.
I hear that this coming week will be a lot easier with food. I wouldn’t say I’ve been hungry, just not satisfied. Im eating enough foods but I like to feel full after a meal and I wouldn’t say that is happening a whole lot.
This week I have lost 2 pounds and 2 inches! Yay me!
