    Yeah. I've been offered free Daily Method classes to hush me up.... no thanks lol

    Weight (this am): 140.7
    Workout: N/a

    I have been having a pretty bad spasm in my back since Sunday evening. It peaked in intensity on my ride home last night and I couldn't bring myself to do legs day. The rest was a good idea, spasm is gone today. I will squeeze legs day in today before trivia. Also, calories were exceptionally low so I'm not going to take too much stock in the new low weight, but I will admit I did a little happy dance to see "140".

    Definitely not ABS just obliques lol .... which makes sense since I do a lot of oblique training (planks, Russian twists, ice skating, single arm/legs/stabilization lifts) but rarely bother with abs targeting. I can feel the top two abs, but lower than that are pretty well buried still. I've never managed to get more then a 4-pack to show (and I was probably ~16-17% BF at that point). I store basically no fat between my bellybutton and bra band, all fat stores are in the boobs, butt/lovehandles, and thighs. My boobs are holding on to size for dear life this cut, probably because I desperately need them to shrink a cup or two for the dress to be comfortable. Normally I can get down to a 30DD at lower BF, but they're still filling out my 32DDDs way too well :'( (actual bra measurement right now is 28G, but yeah.... no desire to try to find those so I deal with ill fitting bras).


    Hahaha sorry my reply somehow turned into a boob rant.....

    Calories: 1655
    Protein: 123
    Weight: 140.1 (um what?)
    Workout: Legs Day
    Front Squat 3x8@55#+XHeavy Band
    Elevated SLDL 3x8@85#
    Walking Lunges w/ DBs 3x8@20#ea
    Single Leg SLDL w/ DB 3x8@20#
    Leg Press 3x8@150#
    Glute Bridge w/ 35# Bar & XHeavy Band Hold 20/Rest 10 x8
    1.5 mi fast walk

    So yeah, what do you know, once I stopped so many treat/cheat days I'm dropping a pound a week. I'm gonna eff that right up this weekend since, you know, birthday. But heck, maybe I'll be in the 130s for my 30th. That'd be a nice treat. Today I only had one prepped lunch and I let my bf take it because I have a cafeteria and he doesn't. But actually I grabbed a bunch of protein snacks I had lying around and I might just do poverty lunch of greek yogurt, protein bar, and protein shake.

    Yay for progress. And neh to you and the boobs. I kept hoping some day my chest size would be a little bigger than my stomach but nope, I still lost in the chest and my stomach is just a bit bigger. Envying the obliques situation too. ;-)

    Well, I'm 30 now.

    Friday I did my pull workout and no cardio.
    Saturday I didn't workout unless you count some club dancing. Didn't track calories but they were probably at a little above TDEE (champagne, cake, one mixed drink).
    Sunday I ate all of the wonderful things -- Hash House A Go-Go for brunch and sushi for dinner. One mixed drink. One big bite of cake. Probably a bit above TDEE again, and the only exercise was walking a ~2 mi.
    Today I have some leftover sushi for lunch and there's still 3.5 entire chocolate cupcakes in my apartment! But I'm going to hockey again and that should burn an extra 300-400 calories. I haven't stepped on a scale since Friday and I'm not going to until Wednesday or Thursday. I have no desire for that @$$-kick.

    Oh, I got the damn dress on with my Spanx. It still is a bit snug at the hips and a real challenge to zip up past my waist (I'm going to sew in some extra hook-and-eyes to relieve the zipper strain). Honestly, at this point, I would never recommend anyone buying a Morilee bridesmaid dress. My bust measurement is actually smaller than the size on their site, but that's where the dress is the tightest. There also appear to be shape inconsistencies between all of the dresses. Mine is mermaid and others are cut A-line. The plus sizes are cut for giants (like, 6'4") and mine is perfect on my 5'5" self for length, so I guess you aren't expected to be tall and remotely slender. Plus, even though it's tight on my hips and fits nearly perfectly at my waist, there's like, a pocket of loose fabric at my gut. Apparently bridesmaids are supposed to have beer guts? Anyway. I'm going to continue the cut for the next three weeks, but I am going to San Francisco this weekend and then have a gala the next, so I know there will still be some higher calorie days in there. Now that the dress at least fits enough to tolerate, I'm done stressing over it.

    Yeah my calories are very low some days to make up for days that they're quite high. I generally average out to 1700-1800/day over the course of a week, though.

    Calories: Basically ate all the things in the above pictures in leftover form, so quite high
    Weight: 142.9 this morning, which actually isn't as bad as I expected given the amount of carbs and sodium I've consumed in the last 72 hours
    Workout: 60 min of hockey skills clinic

    Today will be Push and Yoga. Plan for the rest of the week is:
    Wednesday Legs+Cardio
    Thursday light cardio/walk to trivia
    Friday Pull+Cardio
    Weekend I'm in San Francisco so my goal will just be to eat reasonably and do a lot of walking.

    Calories: 1400ish (again with the bites of cupcake)
    Protein: 108g
    Weight: 141.6
    Workout: 60 min of spin

    I decided that since I'm taking the weekend off, it would be more beneficial to squeeze an extra cardio session in yesterday and train legs today instead of having a rest day. I'm still about a pound over pre-bday weight. Meh. 20% by the wedding, in 16 days, is looking less and less likely. I estimate my current BF at just about 22%. Some quad definition, some oblique definition, top 2 abs are bumps that you can see if you look really close/I use crazy good lights and IG filters (lol). Still a decent amount of pinchable stuff on my lower belly, love handles, and inner thigh.

    :wave:

    I ended up doing Legs on Thursday and Pull on Friday. The weekend was as planned, lots of walking, a bit of drinking, a lot of dining out but trying to be reasonable about it. I'm really sick of dieting but I'm going to try to be good for just the next two weeks. Anyway, I'm planning on doing yoga tonight and also drop in hockey from 945-11pm (sooooo late..... whhhhy). Lifting will resume tomorrow.

    Calories: Didn't track, but didn't go overboard. Probably ~1600
    Protein: Same, probably a little short of my 100g goal
    Weight: 140.5#
    Workout:
    Vinyasa Yoga, 60 min
    Drop in hockey, around 80 min of which I was on the ice around half of

    I twisted my right ankle at hockey. It's not awful but it doesn't feel great either. Luckily today is just Push, most of which can be done seated. Probably can't do cardio though. Or maybe the twinge will be gone by then and I can do some biking. I'm cutting the cals pretty low from here out, 10 days to go.

    Calories: Didn't track again, but probably in the 1800 range
    Protein: Considering I had chicken for lunch and dinner, safe to assume >100g
    Weight: 141.3 (having IBS symptoms this morning.... the bloat is real -.-)
    Workout: Push Day
    Incline bench 4x12x55#
    Single Arm DB Bench on Busa 4x8x25#
    Superset DB Standing Press 4x8x20#ea + Single Arm Cable Crossover 4x8x20#
    Superset DB Alternating Front/Side Lat Raises 4x12x8#ea + Tricep Pushdown 4x15x40#
    Tabata style plank variations, 4 min

    By the end of the day my ankle was hurting like a mofo so I skipped cardio. Also, between travel, hockey, and a spat with the bf last night, I have been averaging only 6 hours of sleep per night. I'm definitely one of those who requires 8-9, so I feel like absolute ****. That trend will just continue with trivia tonight. In reality I should skip trivia, save the calories and get the extra sleep, but I won't. I can always sleep when I'm dead, right?

    Today I plan on doing the Legs workout and walking to/from trivia (4 mi). Of course, that will depend on the ankle. It felt fine this morning, but I'm giving a 2 hour long seminar today on my feet so I don't know if that'll last. If it feels like ****, I'll probably do a Pull workout and Uber to trivia.

    So between the sprained ankle and getting sick this weekend, I haven't managed to workout since Wednesday. I was definitely not up to the legs workout on Thursday, and I only walked to trivia (~2 mi) but wasn't up to the walk back. I was really sick on Friday with a cold that hasn't quite kicked the bucket still and did nothing but sleep and eat soup. Saturday ended up being frantically busy because my bf decided to buy a motorcycle so I had to drive him all the way up to Oceanside, then I had the Red Dress Gala which I spent ~3 hours getting ready for (I did some crazy makeup stuff), then danced the night away and all that. So I didn't work out but I was active all day, even though I was still feeling like crap. Sunday I mostly recovered from the Gala and the cold, cleaned the house just to keep myself moving.

    Also haven't bothered to track calories, but am still eating in a deficit for sure. I'm going to try to go no/low sodium and up the water and fiber this week to flush the system and drop any water bloat before the wedding. Open to tips to show up the most depleted by Saturday to buy those extra inches!

    The dress fits, sort of. It's still just a bit too snug on the hips so it pulls funny, and I'm not sure how well I will be able to sit. I wore it around the house yesterday to try to stretch it a bit. I haven't measured my hips or thighs in a while but I definitely dropped there because my favorite cutoff shorts can now be pulled off completely without unbuttoning lol.

    Anyway, ankle is still a tad sore (actually, it's just as sore as the day I did it which is frustrating, it wasn't a serious sprain so I don't know why it's still sore!) and the cold is still lingering. But I'm going to try to workout tonight anyway. I guess it's technically legs day. Ideally this week will be:

    Monday - Legs + Cardio (maybe rowing for minimal ankle impact)
    Tuesday - Yoga + Hockey
    Wednesday - Pull + Cardio (stairmaster?)
    Thursday - Push + Cardio (spin class)
    Friday - I'll be in Michigan, so ??? maybe an outdoor bike ride, also have nail appointment, rehearsal, and rehearsal dinner
    Saturday - hair appointment, makeup appointment, wedding

    Calories - Didn't track, probably ~1600
    Protein - Over 100g easily
    Weight - Yep I'm kinda over the scale didn't want to weigh myself
    Workout - Legs
    Overhead Squat - 4x10x45#+X-Heavy Band
    Elevated SLDL - 4x10x85#
    Seated Leg Extensions - 4x10x50#
    Standing Leg Curls - 4x10x60#
    Glute Bridge - 35#+X-Heavy Band, 20 sec on/10 sec off x8
    Plank variations, 4 min tabata style
    Cardio - Like, 6 min of rowing before I decided I was over it

    I've been in such a funk the last week. Plus, my cold is making everything (especially my coffee) taste funny and that is just upsetting. My ankle is still nagging but I think I'll do hockey tonight anyway. I think it might be the only way to do any cardio because my motivation at the gym right now is zilch.

    Still no calorie or macro tracking. Still assume I'm pretty well below TDEE and above 100g of protein.
    Weight: 140.7
    Workout:
    Vinyasa Yoga 60 min
    Drop-in Hockey 80 min (on ice roughly half that)

    I'm pretty sure that I've gone from being sick to just having really bad allergies. Something the SoCal locals call "The Santa Anas" which I interpret as a wind that comes from the mountains instead of the ocean and brings all sorts of different dust and pollen with it. The fun thing about moving across the country 3 times is that your body never knows what the eff is going on :'D

    The ankle is now hurting a little worse than last week. I went into the boards feet first once so this is deserved. Kinda sucks because the bridesmaid dress is the perfect length with the heels I planned to wear, but would be too long if I go with flats. So I'll be wearing heels on Saturday for at least the ceremony and pictures. I'll bring flats to change in to later if needed I guess.

    I've been drinking this homemade anti-inflammation remedy, with cinnamon, honey, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and a pinch of cayenne. Diluted enough, it's not that bad. Plus "diluted enough" means like 1:4 with water so it's forcing me to drink more water at work than I usually do. So even if I don't get the anti-bloat/inflammation effects I'm aiming for, there's that.

    this thing sounds delicious although it seems not according to your word lol. the SANTA ANA WIND!~ have you watched the crazy ex girlfriend? it's one of my fav shows on netflix and it's essentially the story of my life. they had a very funny song about that wind somewhere in season 2. I've learned from that show that this wind makes everyone feel weird.

    hope your ankle gets better soon and have great fun at the wedding!!!!!

    I survived! The wedding was beautiful and in the end I actually did like my dress better than the other option. The other dress really was too low cut. Even the sequins looked pretty nice in photos. I don't have a ton of pictures yet, just the ones taken on my phone so I'm behind the lens in most of them. But here's one of my favorites that kind of shows off the dress:



    Right now, I think I'm going to take a week or two of not tracking my food, not weighing myself, and enjoying some foods and wine that I kept to a minimum for the last couple months. I will stick to the same activity level because I think that was a good balance. I'm really not sure long term if I want to keep slowly cutting down to the original goal of ~18% BF or just "maintain" and enjoy life through the winter. Bulking isn't really on the table. I don't think I'm training consistently enough or progressively enough (due to working out in an apartment gym) to make serious gains.

    Tonight is yoga and hockey drop-in. Food is looking to be ~1800 if all goes as currently planned. Oh, ankle is back to 90%, let's hope I don't undo that at hockey again lol.

    Calories - Reasonable/no splurges
    Protein - Easily 100+
    Workout - Yoga (60 min) + Hockey (80 min)

    There were 3 shifts last night so I was only on ice approximately 25 min of that. I think I'm progressing nicely back to where I was when I played regularly. I am tempted to join a team, but that cost is the same as doing drop-in, plus there's commitment so that I can't miss a day/game. I just wish this session wasn't so damned late. It ends around 11:15, so it's well after midnight by the time I can change out, drive home, shower, and go to bed.

    Today should be legs day. Oh, and kickball starts back up on Sunday.

    Calories: Lots. Probably 3k+. Company had a BBQ, then I had 4 giant cookies, then I had a giant burrito and a margarita for dinner. I regret nothing.
    Protein: Easily over 100g
    Workout: None. I was so damned tired I vegged on the bed from the moment I got home until the moment bf pulled me off to go to Mexican place. Then after Mexican I food coma-ed out at around 9pm. Again, I regret nothing.

    I'm still trying to shake off the lingering affects of the cold or seasonal allergies or whatever. Every time I cough, I get mucus. It's gross and annoying and it makes me feel like I can't take a deep breath. Also I was foggy brained AF this morning. Like, almost missed my exit to work. -.-

    Anyway, someone kick my ass and tell me to get back on the lifting train before I decide that being a fat lil potato all winter isn't such a bad idea lol

    Calories: Lots again. Probably 3K plus again.... Had a "breakfast burger" and lots of fries for dinner, about a bottle of red wine, and Ghiradelli chocolate shake after trivia.
    Protein: Hmm. Guestimate would be around 80g.
    Workout: Just the ~4mi round trip walk to/from trivia. Traffic was a bi-atch and I didn't get home in time to lift. Okay, maybe I did but I chose to watch hockey instead.

    I think I need a fitness goal. Apparently I completely lack motivation to lift without one. Possible ideas....
    1. Figure competition. Pros: Always wanted to give it a go. Definitely would provide a goal deadline. Cons: Only SD show I can find is in August which would put me in a weird place. Too soon to cut, not enough time for a constructive bulk. And I'm kind of enjoying fat-kidding right now plus the bf was kind of sick of me whining about the diet. Would be expensive (if I do it, I'm getting a coach, posing instructor, etc. No point in half-assing).
    2. Train to become better at hockey. Pros: Being better at hockey. Upping my skating to ~3 times a week would mean I could fat kid all I want and not turn into a potato. Cons: Not really sure what all this would entail? Probably switching to a non-bodybuilding routine that focuses on power and agility. Would take a lot of tweaking. Would be really effing expensive to skate that much in this zip code.
    3. Spend $300 on a dress that's two sizes too small. Pros: Definitely motivates me. Cons: No where to wear said dress.

    I'm so behind on this that you've survived the wedding and beyond. The dress looked great, much better than on the initial pictures shown. Yay for calories too. Nice to have that break but know what you mean on wanting a new motivation. I can never get myself to spend money on clothes let alone ones that don't fit yet, but do know some people find that an effective form of motivation. Hockey sounds fun too though. hmmmm

    Good luck!
