FEELING FLAT AND LETHARGIC

Yesterday was a difficult day as I felt so flat and lethargic. I'm supporting WH by doing a detox with him. I'm not following the diet strictly as I want to keep my protein intake up but I have cut out alcohol (I know, I shouldnt be having it anyway), caffeine, red meat and anything processed or remotely junky. I'm also taking all the detox supplements and I'm sure that I now rattle. My sytem is feeling it. I dont have a headache this time (I've detoxed before with great success) but I'm so incredibly tired.

Here's the conversation I was having with myself on the way home from work yesterday: "I'm so tired. I'm too tired to train legs tonight. There's no way I can squat those heavy weights today. I feel like crying. I feel like going to bed when I get home and sleeping til its time to go to work tomorrow".....and it went on like that.

But a figure competitor does NOT give in to these negative influences and when the time came I did my leg training as prescribed and gave it my best. Failure is NOT an option.

We had no internet access last night so I was a bit lost in the evening and couldnt try to post those pics again. I will try again today but if I have no success I'll need to call on some help as I truly am technically challenged.

Eating has been good. Even with lunch out yesterday, I stuck to the warm chook salad and tried to limit the quantity to something reasonable instead of the gargantuan portion you get when eating out at a cafe. I've also set myself a goal of being in bed by 10pm as I really need the extra sleep lately and I have been sleeping like the dead.

Cheers for now

You will have times were those negative thoughts will creep in and you feel like you can't train. There were times I even burst into tears at the gym and had to walk out halfway through my session. Good to see that you turned your thoughts around and gave it a go. You're definitely getting a great mindset! xo

Yeah sometimes I read the training program Josh has set out and I almost cry at the weights he prescribes. But I do try to pull myself out of it and I figure if I give it my best shot then I've done ok.
