Well Saturday is finally here!! I look forward to Saturdays because it means One week closer to the competition!!
As for the title of this blog..... Last night I decided to head out with a couple friends to a few bars in Palm Springs. I thought Id be able to handle being around drunk people and still have a good time. WRONG I WAS. I could not believe some of the stuff I was seeing. Its crazy how much you notice when you remove yourself from situations and Look at what really goes on at a club its not that much fun. Also the mix of lower carbs and training hard DO NOT mix. I was miserable. So needless to say, Im content with staying at home, relaxing & surrounding myself with people that I care about instead of going out.
Had amazing workouts yesterday. Got everything in early, ran some sprints at a local park after finishing my 50 min of cardio. It felt great to do some running outside!!
Today I woke up around 8 am. Got my normal breakfast in & headed to train hamstrings & shoulders.
I got through a new leg workout that Gina gave me and damn did it tear my ass up, LITERALLY LOL!!! Gotta bring out my glutes and hamstrings. This was the workout:

After I got that done, I hit the treadmill for a 10 min cool down. Grabbed a protein shake with 1/4c of oatmeal and headed in to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for an hour.
Now all I have left for workouts today is 40min of cardio. I'll do 25min stairmill and 15 min on the treadmill at a 15 incline & probably 4.4MPH.
Im feeling MUCH MUCH better. Getting in my workouts and eating great. Im really starting to see a difference. I took some pictures today after my workout. I havent weighed myself lately, but here are the pics.
