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.
