White Noise Fades in the Distance

2 days into the race new plan I took my cheat meal (Saturday).  I stayed off the scale.  I can tell I’m heavier, but I’m mentally okay, which is a different feeling after a cheat meal so soon into a program and knowing I’m up from that recent low.  Typically I would be playing mind games with myself about how I didn’t deserve or need that cheat meal and having the feeling that it was just a step backwards.  But this time, I don’t feel like that.  I can hear a very quiet voice that is trying to talk like that but it’s not coming through clearly.  There’s also a sense of… a lifting of time restraints connected to this.  This feels unusually refreshing – loving.

Speaking of dull messages and mental blocks (wasn’t I?), I finally received the message that’s been trying to get through to me for years on the importance of carbs pre and post workout.  I implemented that common sense rule today.  I suppose with all the other white noise it made it hard to hear anything else. I had mixed 1 Tbsp of honey with each protein drink (pre and post).  This was the formula Mark used with me in the past.  It’s all I could think of at the moment.

I worked legs today.  I was able to push a little bit further in intensity and volume.  Was it the carbs?  Or was it the fact I’m ready to move forward more after my month long break?  Maybe both.  Regardless, I had a fantastic kick butt (literally) and leg workout!
