How does Status Update Monday keep showing up so quickly?!? Well, here we are again, and I can say unequivocally that I got the better week I was hoping for.
The best part of the week for me was my workouts. Remember last week, how I said I was succeeding well at pushing harder with every workout? This week saw even more of that. I raised weight, did more reps and more sets, tried more new variations of some of my favorite lifts, added more accessory lifts and core work, and did more yoga and stretching. I was sore all over all week, and it was excellent! I’m looking forward to my next round of progress photos. I have good reason to hope for real, visible improvement.
Diet was less excellent. I stayed keto, but was still struggling some with the desire to overeat. I kept it mostly in check, but ended up not feeling great a lot of the time. I really wanted to give the slightly lower protein and higher fat protocol a good solid 30 days to see if it would work better for me, but considering that I’ve felt less than stellar and have been fighting off the urge to binge for the entire time I’ve been trying it, I think the verdict is in. This week I’ll be going back to my usual ratio of approximately 1:1 grams of protein and fat.
I don’t have a lot else to report this week. Honestly, I’ve been a bit mood-swingy and low. Hopefully that will subside as I get back to my usual eating habits. There are more social events coming up as the summer season gets going, and with the drier weather there should be more hiking and other activities. Looking forward to all of that!
I hope all of you are doing well, and that the week ahead looks bright for you!
