Cravings and Results

I'm finally starting to feel a little better! My cough is getting better, and I had more energy today than I've had in awhile. A couple more days of prednisone and some sleep, and I should have this pesky bronchitis kicked!

I trained delts today, and wow! What a workout! I had phone calls during the time Jerry and I usually train together, so I had to train by myself, which was somewhat disappointing. He designed a training program for us to follow, with some exercises different, depending on what we each need to work on. Since we both need to bring up our delts, we did the same exercises today. And honestly, I don't think I've ever exhausted my delts this much in my 11 years of training! By the time I was finished with the workout, I could barely lift my arm to fix my ponytail! I'm curious to see how I'll feel tomorrow.

I was very hungry after the workout, and then got sleepy a couple hours later. I know the intense hunger means I'm getting healthier, which is good. Feeling sleepy means I'm still fighting something, though. And the workout took a lot out of me.

As far as my diet goes, I'm still on track! This has been a difficult week for me, as I've really been craving carbs and sugar (especially donuts!). The previous 3 weeks really weren't too difficult mentally, but I've really struggled this week. I think it's a combination of things: week 4 of the diet, 2 carb-up days in a row (Sat & Sun), female issues, and my body getting healthier (which increases my appetite). While I haven't actually picked up anything I'm not supposed to eat, I don't immediately walk by "forbidden" foods either. I linger and imagine how they'd taste. I'm hoping next week will get easier.

Today I noticed that I seem to be getting a little leaner too! I could actually see some ab lines and some of my serratus too. I didn't feel any leaner, but seemed to look it just a bit. Just enough to keep me motivated and on track! I can't wait to see the results I'll be getting soon. Cardio starts next week!
