I’m continuing to feel better each day with my back pain and the exercises I can do. I’ve been sleeping with a pillow under my knees which has been great for decreasing discomfort and making me significantly less stiff in the morning. I am still only pulling from the hang and am lifting absolutely nothing from the ground (that’s what got me into this mess!). Everyday my back feels a little bit better, so I’m hoping slow progress will continue to improve things. I’m just happy I can get in to RAW to get a workout in with other people!
I’m 3/3 on perfect macros since checking in with my coach and promising a full week of spot on macros. Drinking more water when I feel psychologically hungry has helped a ton and only eating when I’m truly hungry. Although this backfired somewhat yesterday as I had to have an eggwhite scramble with my dinner of a burger with broccoli. I mean, that’s not the worst thing in the world, but I was definitely full after dinner!
I’ve woken up each day more driven than previously to see where I can really take my body during this time. I’m still enjoying the process and while I definitely think that the vacation without tracking and going on a full diet break was much needed, I’m ready to see how much my body can respond, and then reverse diet the appropriate way. I’m eating the same macros as I was previously eating for fat loss, and I do not feel deprived at all. My mental game is that much stronger this time around.
So after a morning of some hard workouts, I’m about to clean up the house a bit and then take a nap before I work the evening shift for the next two days. I swear my life is just a series of small naps! Have a great day guys!
