What the hell happened to last week?

What the hell happened? I don’t know! My eating was shit, I made it to the gym three times, and I finally pulled 100kg deadlift without being “dirty” about it, but everything else was a shit show.

I tracked food, but only some of it, I drunk water, but nowhere near what I want to be drinking (1.5-2L daily) I met my step goal, but only like, twice. It was certainly not a great week. To top it off, I decided to jump on the scales twice! The first time I didn’t gain or lose, but the second time, I guess after a few shitty days of eating, I’d somehow gained 2kg! That’s huge!

Weekly goals #4

OK! I clearly didn’t post at all last week, in fact, aside from my XXfitnesschallenge goal, I didn’t know what I’d be capable of after my surgery.

Turns out, everything went find and I did all my workouts (very lightly, mind you! I probably did more cardio to make up for it, really) except deadlift day (went to the beach instead… you just need a break sometimes, OK!) I also hit my goal steps (still 12k) EVERY DAY! I am so pleased with myself!

This week my goal is to eat 1500 calories at least 3 times this week. I kind of bugered that up today (I had butter chicken+naan for lunch…) but I reckon I’ll be fine these coming days! I’ve really noticed that water does make me very full, and I’ve started drinking as much as I can to curb feeling so hungry!

Powerlifting goals!

Alrighty! It’s been awhile since I posted anything non-goal related, and… well this isn’t exactly non goal related, but it’s specifically about my powerlifting.

A few posts ago I briefly mentioned that I wanted to participate in a power lifting comp. I’ve finally gotten the dates for this years meets, and unfortunately the “Novice” comp is way to soon (plus it’s on a Saturday, and my boss is pretty chill, but I don’t want to push it by taking another Saturday off!) I certainly don’t have any time to prep, especially because my surgery means I’ll be off heavy lifting for roughly a week. (Doctor said one week max, nurse said 3 weeks… I’m not sure which one to go by lol). So I think I’ll bite the bullet and go for the April and/or June comp. One which seems to be bench only,and another which I believe is all 3 (Bench, deadlift and squat). It’s all a little confusing, and I hope I’ll be able to enter with my low lifts (compared to the pros!).

Weekly Goals #3

These post titles are extremely boring, I know! There’s also the fact that again, I haven’t posted this on a Sunday like I said I would! I went to do it yesterday, and got side tracked by not liking the current theme I had.

Anyway, weekly goals round 3! This weeks goals are simple, they are to get to the gym 4 times this week. Only 4?! Yes! I am going to have surgery (don’t worry, nothing major!) on Friday at 7am! So I can’t even go to the gym Friday morning, so I’ll have to go Mon, Tue, Wed, Thurs. Hope I can do it! I’m unsure yet if I’ll be able to walk, and even I can, I might downgrade my steps to only 10k.

Weekly Goals #2

Woops! I’m two days late with this, but mainly because I’ve been so busy and tired these past days! I did do my journalling, where I did add this weeks goals, on Sunday, so I don’t really think it’s too late to post them  here!

The upcoming goals of this week are mainly food related. The first one is NO  BUYING LUNCHES! At least, no pies, Subway, BK, sweets anything of the sort. The reason behind this weeks goal is mainly because I’m BROKE.I have yet to make a meal plan for this week (if I have time after the gym I shall do that), but I have already bought 3 meats (mince, a roast lamb, and some chicken mignon) that I’ll just need to add vegetables to. Both the lamb and the mince should do 4+ meals,  so I already have 4 lunches. 🙂 I’m only working 4 days this week, and 3 next week (due to surgery) so lunch wise at work I think I should be OK these coming weeks!
