2/27/08 Log: 6-Day Slim Down Day 2

I went to bed too late last night and overslept this morning again, though I did get in my lower body weights first at home and, more importantly, stick to my meal plan, so I count it as a successful Tuesday. I’ll have to get in my workouts at lunch and after my last colored pencil drawing class tonight, though.

We are expecting a cold front (30s-40s…brrr) tonight, too, which means that I had to bring in the baby plants that I have yet to put in the ground. They are currently nestled in a recycling bin in the enclosed patio. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the cats won’t tear them up while I’m at the office. I don’t know why I bother trying to plant tomatoes before March anyway. Each year I am tricked by the unseasonably warm Florida weather into putting my plants out in mid-February, and every year, a freak 2-night cold front always freezes my veggie babies unto death within 6 days of planting.

Down another 0.6 lbs to 141.0 today! I am definitely hitting 139.x by Monday. My whole team has committed to going turbo with me for the next 5.5 weeks just so we can soundly trounce the three north side teams. I am thinking about switching back to a 3 day lifting program next week, though, as my energy levels will start to tank from the decrease in calories and the start of a carb-cycling nutrition plan. I also tend to lean out better with more interval and cardio time once I get into the 130’s, so it may be time for me to give up on the TT mass programs for now and just go back to a fat loss focus.

  1. Good luck, Maggie! But still one question. Your body weight varies in recent years, do you always keep training?
