Hey guys and happy Friday! Just thought I would pop in here to give you all an update on what's been going on since my last video update. I have 3 days until my photo shoot on Tuesday and I'm kind of up in the air about how I'm feeling physique wise. Part of me wishes I would have given myself more time to get ready, but then the other part knows my life will be way too busy with traveling to stay focused on getting ready for a shoot so now is the best time. Either way- it's happening whether I like it or not haha.
I think another thing that is throwing me off is that time of the month is a few days away (sorry for TMI) but as all you ladies know, that never makes you feel your best so I'm hoping that all passes before Tuesday rolls around.
As far as nutrition goes I am doing some low carb days so that a couple days before the shoot I can drastically increase my carbs to fill out my muscles so I am finding myself a little more tired than usual. Manipulating your carbs and water just allows you to make sure that your muscle definition is the best is can be the day of the shoot and will also help with water retention which I definitely need right now.
Workouts are pretty light this week, I'm still following my Get Lean with Little B plan but just making sure I don't over do it and lifting a little lighter than I typically would. The week or so leading up to a shoot I like to avoid getting overly sore just because your definition can fade a bit if the muscles are broken down an/or you can look flat. So I did my last leg day a couple days ago and will be taking it pretty easy until after my shoot.
As a matter of fact, less than 48 hours after we will be headed down to Mexico to celebrate my mother in laws birthday so I'm not exactly sure what my workout situation will be. I will likely bring all my resistance bands down with me and just do some circuit/cardio based workouts while I'm there. I feel like I'm in a good mindset lately as far as commitment goes and I don't want to completely blow that by throwing caution to the wind for 4 or 5 days so my goal is to stay active while having fun too... balance!
