Still sick. Still working too late.

Didn’t get a chance to log last night because I was in the office until 3am. Which blew.

QUICK RECIPE — Split Pea Soup
1# split peas, 2 chicken breasts, 2 carrots, 1 onion, bay leaves, pepper, salt, cumin. Boil for a couple hours. E.Z.

I was still not over the cold/stomach bug I’ve had all weekend, and then today after working so late last night I felt 100% worse… surprise surprise. Anyway, yeah so I took a sick day, slept til noon,  and am laying around on the couch eating split pea soup (which is delicious by the way). Can’t wait for this sickness funk to be over with. I feel feverish and SO UNCOMFORTABLE.

In other news, before I felt super terrible yesterday I went to the gym and started my first day back on the Cube Method. It was fucking awesome. Like one of the best times I’ve had in the gym in months. I really like the Cube Method. It’s just lots of fun — challenging, but not overly so, and super awesome for getting a pump. Which, I will shamefully admit I totally love.  I left the gym with Jello legs and I totally fucking LOVED it.

Training Log: CUBE Week 1: SPEED SQUATS! 

LBBS: 8 sets of 3 @ 165# – no belt. Felt good for the first speed day at this weight. It’s higher than it was during my last cycle and it felt good. Going to work on getting faster next rotation around… especially at the bottom. Worked on not hyper extending my back and it seemed to stop the hurty.
Front Squats: 5×5 @ 135# – no belt
RDL: 3×8 @ 95#
Leg Press (yeah, you read that shit right): 3×15 @ 1 plate each side.

This was a lot of work and it was totally awesome and fun ❤

Food Log: Tuesday

Macros sucked today. I want to make excuses about being sick and being on my period but really…. I just lost my willpower lately. Focusing on keeping my calories in the right spot until my sense of motivation comes back. Sometimes it’s hard to hit ALL my goals.
