Yesterday I was lucky enough to be my bestie David's hair model for a color class he was taking. It was so much fun and I love how my hair turned out, but for some reason getting my hair colored always makes me tired and usually gives me a headache. He works for an Aveda salon, their products do not smell bad, so I know it's not the fumes or anything, no clue why it happens but it does. So I ended up just going to bed at about 5:30, slept a couple of hours, made myself get up to at least eat a chicken breast and went back to bed.
I woke up at 4:30am ready for the gym! I must have really needed that extra sleep yesterday. Today was back and shoulders, I added weight to some of my back exercises, got a compliment on my back so it must be coming along :) I did have Kyle take a photo of my back for a Flex Friday group photo on bodybuilding.com last week, it is getting more definition for sure!
I feel like I flew through the workout, it only took me about 45 minutes, I really cranked out my reps quick.
So today my will power was tested and I failed. We all know how difficult the nutrition part has been for me, I love me some bad food and it was hard to get past my cravings. I've been doing amazing and today I go into our kitchen at work and there sits a box of delicious assorted donuts from Hy Vee. I say to myself, Steph keep your ass walking by those damn donuts, do not pick one up, for the love of god don't do it! UGH, I did it, I ate half a donut. You would have thought I robbed someone as bad as I felt, but then decided I would really kill it on my HIIT workout for that stupid half of a donut. I will say it tasted AMAZING!!!! So for lunch today I enjoyed a 20 minute elliptical HIIT workout, good lord I can't say it enough but they so kick your ASS!!! I was just dripping sweat when I got done, felt so good :)
