muscle monster

Saturday, May 11, 2013

well, let me tell you... I am the 'I've been working my ass off for one week like a mad women and deserve results type' :]
I also have the genetically disposition to gain muscle like a mad women. I don't need protein powder to start bulking. If I use these muscles, they grow. I am okay with this. I enjoy lifting weights and I've learned to incorporate a massive amount of cardio to my week 40-60 minutes after I finish my sets, plus my mileage warm up. So burning an insane amount of weight and eating at my BMR I am still gaining. I look fabulous, but gaining non the less when I am trying to get shredded here. am up 5 lbs. It just irritates me- I know, I k now, the scale doesnt tell the whole story, don't obsess, take measurments, look at physical results. I know. I also have a number and I am determined to reach it.
There is some comic relief in all of this. Although I gain like a man, my husband, gains like a skinny girl. So while I am lifting and doing an insane amount of calorie burning cardio and eating clean and getting on the scale going damn it, I ***** gained again! My husband is lifting heavy, drinking protein shakes, eating everything and anything he can get his hands on like a garbage disposal and getting on the scale and saying damn it, I'm ****** down! We are so ying yang as far as fitness and the healthy lifestyle and genetics.

He is trying to bulk and getting shredded.
I am trying to get shredded and bulking.

The biggest plus is our daughter has the genetic disposition to be TALL, have a fast metabolism, and get that muscle definition all at once. So, perk.

    I truly despise the scale. At 6 feet, and a 34HH bust, it is NOT my friend. I have been ST for a while and after many moments of frustration and whys, I let that thing be and just fully embraced ST :) Glad you left that scale alone :)

    WTG !! Love your Beast Mode!!

    Hi Sienna it's BackatitAmy actually now Back2PHAT Amy but that's ok cus i'm going to get my butt in gear again and lose what I had already lost plus more this time. I had some major bumps last year that brought my spirit down but I've been recovering and am feeling that "spark" again. You are still kicking ass and taking names and that's inspiring to see. That is a great perk that your daughter got the best of both you and your husband. I'm thankful everyday that my daughter is going in the right direction too. Tall and thin and will never have to worry about her body size until she's older or maybe never :)
