Week 12 Update! I can’t believe I am half way through prep.
💫 MINDSET ❤️
As the time zips by, here are my fears:
” Time is running out.”
😳” I don’t have enough time.”
😬 “I’m not progressing as fast as I should.”
Which brings me to the thought 💭 of the week:

Your words of encouragement and support have HELPED me continue to chip away. So 🆃🅷🅰🅽🅺 🆈🅾🆄. I APPRECIATE 😊YOU!
🍱 MACROS 😋
I’m in my 5th cut during this prep. Macro changes have come about every 2 weeks usually when the weight loss stalls. My Coach asked if I wanted more cardio or less food and CAN YOU BELIEVE I chose less food?
My body is VERY used to LOTS OF EXERCISE so choosing more cardio would have been the easy way out. I know 100% that less food is going to make a bigger impact on my results versus doing more cardio.
1 high day 145g carbs
2 low days 90g carbs
4 mod days 120g carbs
Protein 155g across the board. Fat at 40g for most days; 45g on my high day.
Yes, I’m Hungry. I’m hungry where I notice it and say it a lot. But not to the point where I’m gonna turn into a 🧟♀️.
Checking this box is the EASIEST of it all. I’ve spent the last 2 decades being someone who exercises. I’m getting used to being low energy most of the time. It’s a well-known place for me, having completed 100s of triathlon races where I had to train my body to keep going despite my energy tank being on “E.”
Here’s how I deal: I take naps. I double up meals sometimes. I reach out to my Coach and sometimes I’ll get a no cardio day. I space my meals closer together, more in the 2 hour window. I use pre workout before lifts and coffee for fasted cardio. And most of all, I KNOW this is temporary.
The biggest reward is to just see how much my body is changing. It feels so good to be doing the hard work and to literally see your hard work pay off!
Thx for reading! If I can, you can too! ❤️
