20 weeks out and a few steps backwards!

Yesterday I woke up with a bad stomach virus.  I was bedridden.  Every muscle in my body ached like mad and I had no energy to even walk!  My stomach was in pain.  After a day and night of rest and sleep I was able to get back to work today, it must have been a 24 hour virus.

It's funny because I remember starting my prep back in 2007 and going through the same virus but it last 3 days, weird.  Anyway i'm getting better :-)

I had my skin folds taken today and I have gone up, not good for 20 weeks out.  But I was expecting this and we now have plans and goals to reach on a weekly basis.  My weight has actually dropped 1 kilo though, strange.  All these numbers, not what i'm used to when prepping, not sure I like doing it this way but I have too.  So the plan is to drop 5ml by next week (Thursday), see what I can pull out of my magic hat ;-)

Since the 5th of Jan I have been on target, I will continue to move along the way I always have when prepping because the results will show, I will stand on stage no more then 30mls, it will all come together :-)

I'm still juggling my training and cardio around work, it's a real challenge but nothing in life is easy is it?  The most amazing thing I have taught myself (don't ask me how) is not to stress!  Instead of freaking out because I can't train on Tuesday, I now say to myself "that's okay, I can train Wednesday instead, easily fixed"!  No point in being so anal about what day I train a certain body part, time to chill a bit, saves loads of stress, wish I was like this before.

Will visit soon,
Debs

P.s. I picked up two more super duper clients this morning :-)

Hope you are feeling much better now Deb, that virus sounds nasty!

Sounds like work and training is keeping you busy, I'm sure you'll reach those goals in no time.
