Hello Blog World!
How was your holiday weekend? Mine was pretty awesome! Had lots of great food, good company, did a photoshoot on Friday, edited tons of photos and today had a good workout. I didn’t go shopping on Friday since I didn’t find anything that I HAD to have. I think Black Friday is overrated these days and sooner or later you find better deals somewhere else. So unless I see an unbelievable special, I refuse to go and mingle with the grouchy people that got up at 3 am to go shopping!!
I just want to give you an update on how my growing phase is going. I’m at the half-way point of my specialization focus on shoulders and quads. I’m actually up 7 pounds!!! I don’t really count the first 3 since I know it’s water weight due to all of the extra carbs I eat these days. So let’s say that I’ve gained 4 lbs okay? That’s still actually a lot to gain in one month! I should be gaining .5 lbs a week so I’m double than my goal. Soooo, this means that I need to tighten up my eating frenzy I’ve enjoyed lately.
I must say that even though I’m up 7 lbs, I don’t feel them! I can’t tell where they’ve gone since my clothes still feel the same and I don’t look extra fluffy (yet). One of the positive side of this is that my workouts are pretty awesome these days! I’m enjoying the extra energy I have in the gym. This ROCKS!
