Current goals and measurements.


I love that I am smaller, but weigh more now! 


It's been a long hot minute since I've updated my progress/goals on here. For a while it just felt like I was stagnant, I spent some weeks eating at maintenance and just working out. Back in Jan/Feb I did a small cut, where I basically cut my calories to try to cut some fat. Honestly I couldn't get focused on it and I wasn't consistent, I felt unmotivated and then I was traveling a lot. I decided to stop forcing it and go back to eating all the food. 


Currently this is what my daily macros are, this is a good life for me. I feel sated and happy at this caloric amount. 


Somedays I eat spinach salad with double chicken. 


Somedays I eat a pizza with 2 glasses of wine. 


Breakfast is by far my favorite meal, bagel sandwiches with cheese, more cheese, cream cheese, eggs, and a side of cauliflower hash browns.

I'm still hitting the gym 6 days a week, minimum of 5 days lifting and 2 run days. I've been following Poppy's plan and adding in my own stuff too. I don't have any immediate races coming up so I'm just going with the running flow and playing soccer, both indoor and outdoor. I think I am starting to feel a bit bored with my current gym routine. I feel like I"m doing the same things week after week, I've also lost some of my workout partners and I don't have anyone really on the same regiment. I feel like I need to spice up my 5am life, but I'm not sure how. I miss going to classes, I occasionally will go to spin instead of running if the weather is bad. I'd love to maybe hire someone to get me to the next level, but I've not been impressed with any of the trainers at the gym. I just feel like I need some type of goal to work towards, it's a scary feeling to feel unmotivated. I don't want to slide back into old bad habits. I think it's important to push yourself and I don't feel like I'm pushing myself right now.

    1. Yes I agree! You should try CrossFit! Most gyms let you attend for free your first time! I started CrossFit when I got bored at the gym and am in LOVE with it and it makes me excited to get to the gym each day and I have found a whole new group of friends!

  12. You look fab! I love that you are showing the masses that weight is different for every body type AND the scale doesn't always give you the best representation!!! PS your arms are awesome!!! Well done!

    I have heard horror stories about Crossfit but I've also heard love stories too - it's one of those... "To each his/her own" I suppose. My future sister-in-law seems to enjoy it - she's still lower level but is getting the hang of it. Just be careful :)

  15. Have you tried OrangeTheory Fitness? They have 5am classes and since the mix up the workouts you get speed work, hill work and endurance depending on the day that will up your running game and then you still get amazing strength work in with free weights, TRX bands, etc. I never get bored and go 5x's a week (for over a year).

  16. Maybe a trainer? They could challenge you and keep your workout fresh.

    I would also love to try Orange Therapy, but sadly the closest one is a goof 40 minutes away.

  20. I see all my fellow crossfit cult members have already chimed in...But yeah, you should try it :)

  21. CrossFit is expensive and injury is involved. It is fun and motivating though. You could always look up their WOD's for free and do the workouts on your own...

    You ever think of doing a figure competition or something of that nature? You could totally rock it and it's a goal to shoot for. There are good professional coaches to the pro's and they write up workouts for a fee...they might be able to help spice things up and make them fresh?! Could try different movements/weights/HIIT, etc.

    Love following along your journey, you're a huge inspiration!

  22. Crossfit! Injury only happens if you do dangerous things or you don't go to a good gym :) great community, great variety, will make you a better runner! Find a gym that gives attention to mobility (classes other than the regular crossfit classes) That is really important and helps prevent injury. I have found love for olympic lifting through crossfit!
