The week between shows started a little rocky. My stomach was a mess, and I didn’t have much of an appetite. I did my best to eat on plan, but really eating made my stomach hurt .
I am back to my pre-show week meal plan and workouts listed below. I got to the gym although I didn’t start the week with the same intensity that I finished the week. In addition to not feeling well, this week was also challenging due to lots of extracurricular activities Monday night, Wednesday morning, and Thursday night. Luckily, I was able to work from home as opposed to taking the train downtown, getting home late and still having to get to the gym.
While I was able to carve out time for the gym, the time I spent there during the week was limited. Instead of doing cardio and weights each time I was in the gym as I normally would, I dedicated Monday and Thursday for cardio and Tuesday and Wednesday for weights with a focus on lifting heavier and pushing myself to the point of failure.
Friday and Saturday not only was I feeling much better, but I had time to spend on both cardio and weights.
