Weekend Eating Disaster!

Monday, June 08, 2009

Ugh! My weekend eating (from Friday to Sunday) was HORRIBLE!

My stomach is out and I've got serious muffin top over my pants today! BOO!
I need to get back on the clean eating train ASAP to fix this problem! (I am sure I've gained 5 pounds of BLOAT but I'm too afraid to step on the scale to find out!)

This weekend I did a bunch of things that are out of the ordinary. I took my niece and nephew to "Build-A-Bear" where they each made their own teddy bear! It was so much fun, they loved every minute of it! The whole day wiped me out, however, and ended up eating way too many carbs for lunch (which was also eaten way too late!)
Then Friday night we drove to Leduc on our way to the wedding... we stayed the night at my parents house. We stopped at BP's for dinner. (MEH. No clean eating there!)
In the morning we carried on to the wedding! For breakfast, I had Tim Hortons (blahh... more carbs!) and for lunch I had cheese, crackers, fruit and veggies at Collin's aunt and uncles (which was actually easy to eat, but again, low protein!) The wedding was held outside at the Groom's parent's acerage... it was beautiful! They had a tent set up for their guests after the wedding for us to mingle and chat while they went to get their pictures taken! What a great idea!!! However, to eat, they had a cake, candies, chips, pop and alcoholic beverages also avaliable to us in there... and guess who couldn't resist the cake?
The reception was held at 5:00... I could tell I was feeling protein deprived because I was so tired at that point! I wanted to sleep more then eat!
The dinner was excellent, but it was a buffet... and there was PEROGIES on the menu! OMG... I haven't had perogies in AGES... so again, I indulged!
And I had a dessert, or two.
And a piece of wedding cake, or two.
And a glass of wine, or two...
OMG... I feel lie a blimp ready to take off! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Feeling UBER guilty, this morning I went for a run... and I lifted weights at lunch for an hour... and tonight I teach another 1hr weight class! I hope I'm feeling more normal tomorrow!
I AM however, back on the eating right train, I cooked last night and packed accordingly! Feeling better about that already! emoticon emoticon

    You know that once you get clean foods in you for 3 days you will be back to normal or better! I love how quick my body responds to healthy foods. Not mention you work out so much..You're fine girl!

    We all break down occasionally. And we usually regret it just like you did. The joys of being human!!
But it sounds like things are back to normal and I am sure that the bloat will go away in no time. I am sure it could have been much worse. So don't sweat it too much.

    OMG god Jess, I have the exact same feeling a blimp ready to take off! I have had terrible days since last Tuesday! I've had 6 cheat days in a row!! YIKES! I was really dumb and stepped on the scale this morning too. What a wake up call. I was up 11.5 lbs from where I really want to be. I need to go with out the sweets as much as I can until I get things back under control. They are really wrecking everything for me. That is what set me off and I've been so tired and I would have never guessed it was from lack of protein until I read your blog but that makes complete sense since I've had carb/junk/sweet overload. I'm finally back on track too. I can't wait to have a healthy week and many more!

I'm glad you had a good time though. Build-A-Bear is a blast. Did you dance some of your calories off?!?! Let's have a great week. I'm also tracking when I can, I think right now I need that feeling of knowing what I'm consuming! It will help me get back on track!

Weak biceps and Tired Forearms

Thursday, June 04, 2009

I have been experiencing pain in my right elbow that I thought was tendinitis (tennis elbow) for many months now (I'm guessing since October last year, so like 8-9 months now, on and off)
I decided to book a chiropractic appointment with my trainer (she is also a chiropractor!) Since she is the one training me, I thought it would also benefit ME if she knows exactly what my problems are too. We had a great first session & determined that I DON'T have tendonitis but a mild form of bicep tendinosis (chronic inflamation) in that one elbow... most likely caused by my high rep. classes, in which I teach many bicep tracks with bottom half movements (this has caused some excessive strain on my coracobrachialis and bicep)
emoticon ... I KNOW! ...Technical stuff, eh?
Who knew a simple bicep curl could be so damaging!?!

Wendy has prescribed me 4 things todo to aid in the recover of this overuse injury:

1) REST (woo hoo, haha!) - avoid bicep exercises that aggrivate injury.
2) massage (again, HECK YES!) - 2X/month, target bicep, pecs & forearms.
3) forearm flex & extend exercises - use a 3lb weight, 15 reps each direction.
4) pec stretches - lie on a foam roller down the length of my spine and just open my arms like an open book, arm along wall then turn away, and wrist stretches on the floor.

I have been diligent in doing everything she has suggested and today during ARMS training my forarms got sore really quickly! I couldn't believe it!!! I wasn't even doing any biceps yet (doing shoulders) and my forearms were talking to me as if they had never been "turned on" before! (OH... so that muscle ALSO needs to be worked??? LOL I never realized the implications to over training the big muscles and neglecting the small ones... but they ALL do work together and this is becoming even more OBVIOUS to me now!)
Apparently, due to the LACK of forearm training I've been doing (rather NOT doing), my larger muscle groups have been required to work much harder and hence the over-use injury to one of my bicep muscles!

Hopefully, with my new found homework of forearm exercises, I won't look like Popeye the next time you see me!!!

"Gug, Gug, Gug! Check out MY forarms, Ladies!"

... come to think of it, I do love my spinach! emoticon
(just not from a can! LOL)

  Member Comments About This Blog Post:


    I know that this is very serious, but I had to crack up at the Popeye comment! Too funny! Just don't get those "turkey leg" forearms. LOL (They are REALLY sexy to me on men, but I don't think that we would love fabulous with turkey legs! LMAO!)

I am so glad that you have found the problem and Wendy has given you the tools to help your body out. Way to go!!!!!

Funny. I was thinking just that -- and then you wrote it. LOL

OK. My head is still spinning,. I don't completely understand your situation or how you'll fix it -- don't worry, you don't have to explain, I'll reread this tomorrow morning when I'm awake -- but I do havea question for you. What do you think of trainers who say "curls are not for girls"? I've never done a bicept curl.


PS I like spinach, too. The salad at Swiss Chalet is pretty good.

NSD Photo shoot pics

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

They arrived in the mail last night. I plugged the CD into my computer to see them...
and my mouth did one of these:

I thought I looked fabulous... yet, the lighting at the photo shoot was terrible and makes me (my face) look 10 years older then I really am... But my body looks 10 years younger! HA!

Here are 3 that I liked (but I photoshopped them a tad to improve the lighting disaster)

Don't ask me why we posed with a heavy bag... but this is my favorite picture of the set! I love how my mouth is open! So cute!

This picture is my second favorite... my hair looks great, however, my muscles get no love!

Just showing off the goods! I absolutely can't wait till I can wear this outfit again! LOVE!

Just thought I'd share... These pictures came at a really good time! They remind me of how far I can go, when I work both 100% nutrition and kick @$$ training in parallel!

Getting pumped to do this again in the fall! But for now, I really am enjoying OFF SEASON!
I've stopped weighing in daily... stopped being so diet obsessed... just living life!!! Enjoying the fruits of my year long labour! ...and it is SO GOOD!
I went shopping on the weekend and bought size 2 shorts from Gap and XS tops from LeChateau... weight loss is NO LONGER the goal and it is finally sinking in!
I have reached my SIZE goal (surprassed it, actually... not that I ever had a goal size but I started my journey wearing a size 12 pants... so I never dreamt of ever fitting into a size 2 ANYTHING, EVER! LOL) and now it's all about transforming my SHAPE... AGAIN!
TRAIN, TRAIN, TRAIN! Let's see how much mass I can build over the summer!
...Is 5 pounds out of the question?

Cake Batter, anyone?

Saturday, May 30, 2009

I bought a new protein powder yesterday because my current isolates are not exciting me like they once used to! I picked up "Cake Batter" flavored Muscle Milk... all I can say is OMG! I can't wait to hide this into some muffins! I used it this morning tor my pancakes and they truely did taste like real cake batter pancakes! SO FREAKING GOOD!

I haven't been into drinking protein powder shakes because they actually make my stomach hurt lately (I think due to all the air in the drink!) but perhaps I'll try this flavor today and use more milk then water so it's creamier! Oh, it's gonna taste awesome, I already know that!!!

I was SO OVERDUE to get a massage! I made an appointment yesterday after my SPIN class (that made if fairly convenient since I was already at the gym!)

It was HEAVENLY! emoticon

The masseuse said "Your body REALLY needed this massage! You're gonna feel soo much better tomorrow! ... Like your ehxausted body just got a tall drink of cold water! Refreshed!" She was right! I do feel better today!!!

I re-booked for Saturday (2 massages in one week... spoiled much?) because I have really started to feel a lot of toxin pooling & muscle cramping lately! I really should have gone for a massage the week BEFORE the show AND the week PRECEEDING it too! I didn't do EITHER... and my body is kinda in shock that I decided to STOP overtraining & eating so well! ... yeah, I know! Bummer!
She told me that the cramping and bruised feeling is the body's way of finding equilibrium again... so I think I'm almost NORMAL again! I definitely feel like my OLD self for the most part except I'm definitely not as strong as I used to be and I seem to be tired ALL THE freaking TIME!I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat right now! What gives???
emoticon Narcolepsy? ...or maybe it's all the recent late night Sparking that's causing the problems!!! I need to get REAL about my sleep again, ASAP!!!

I need to start committing 2 hours a month to massages... especially during ON SEASON! (or when I'm training hard foor something!) A body can only handle so much muscle pump before it needs to be stripped down and given time to rebuild!

    I'm so glad that you enjoyed a much deserved massage.... ahhhh, sounds so nice! Sorry to hear about the fatigue, though. If you figure it out, let us know. Knowing you, you are probably right on top of you carbs and protein so surely it is not a lack of nutrition. Try to get at least one more hour of sleep each night and see if that helps. Take care! emoticon

    That will be my next thing, I still haven't gotten a massage. I'm going to have to treat myself to one this year hopefully! Spark is addicting isn't it. Lately I've been telling myself to not even go to the computer before bed after I get the kids to sleep because I think I'll be doing one quick thing and then before I know it an hour has gone past. I'm glad things are finally getting back to normal. I can't believe it was already a month ago you had your show! So are you wedding planning yet or have you started dress shopping?
