I finished up my afternoon workout with another round of cardio...30 minutes on the stairclimber @ a steady Level 10. Seriously ♥ that machine! SERIOUSLY!
Tomorrow begins my "sympathy carb depletion". I have been struggling with finding balance in my body again since my competition. It seems my pre-competition diet with the rapid drop in water retention and body fat has sent my body into "shock". I have continued to eat "clean" and resumed my typical carb intake; however, my body is holding on to every morsel! My Momma can officially refer to me as "J-Lo" again, as she so endearingly used to. (love ya, Momma!) So I am basically just tweaking a few minor nutrition points to see what works. I'll keep you posted! :) In the meantime, KEEP TRAINING!
