Ok today was yet another refeed day! I woke up today at 141 lbs this morning.  Nicely depleted and ready for CAAAAARRRRBBBBSS!! I’ve been feeling super energized this week, my body is really thanking me for taking a little break. I feel ready to tackle next week’s high intensity once again. It’s starting to feel too easy lol. The good thing is that I find myself really enjoying this prep. And that is one thing that is the most important thing to me. I feel balanced, my mind is clear and focused. My life right now, as for many of us, is so wrapped around being in the gym and training, and just closely watching my body as it evolves over the the next few weeks. Everyday I see something new. A new curve in my shoulders, a new vein peeking through the tight skin wrapped around it, new tighter definition around parts that just a few weeks ago seemed covered by a layer of fluff. I actually looked at myself yesterday in the mirror and said, wow, I REALLY LOVE.MY.BODY. That in and of itself is an amazing feeling. To admire what you see, not in a narcissistic kind of way, but in a way that you appreciate how far you’ve come. That is such an EMPOWERING feeling. I love my body, and the fact that I have the priviledge to push it to its limits is an honor and blessing for me. And I’m ready to begin the climb to the absolute apex of what my potential can truly be.

Anyways, enough sentimental shit. Let’s get down and dirty! Today was my refeed. I decided today to get a little “edgy” — lol  — with my food choices. Having dropped about 3.6 lbs of scale weight in less than a full two weeks is a great deal, so I knew that I wouldn’t throw everything off balance, especially if I keep my macros under control. Typically my refeeds are pretty “clean” as in I normally like to keep the fat as low as possible. So I’ll normally hit about 20-25g, sometimes 30 or so for the entire day. But my carbs will be up to like 300/350g for the day, and protein about .8xBW. It takes about 3 to 4 days for me to completely flush out the excess water, and I walk away a few lbs lighter as well. But today I broke norm by adding some new choices in there. Carbs got up to about 325g, fats about 45-50, protein about .9/1xBW – guestimates because I couldn’t measure the sushi exactly, but going by what the serving size is, I don’t think it’s too far off. So here’s how the menu and training day shaped up:

Pancakes w/ Syrup (no high fructose corn syrup added) and Egg Whites
Gym: Crushed the HELL out of my shoulders and biceps!
PWO: Protein Shake then SUSHI!
2 Hrs later: Fat Free Vanilla Ice Cream Cone and a Brown Sugar Low Fat Pop Tart
Dinner: 2 In and Out Burgers (no cheese or sauce, just ketchup and mustard)

The dirties were the burgers. They’re actually thin patties, the macros break down to 310 cals, 10g Fat, 41g Carbs, 16g Protein. The only thing on it besides the patty (which is real beef by the way unlike McDonald’s – I’m suspecting 85% lean) is a slice of tomato, onion, ketchup and mustard. So yeah I dogged two of those babies! So good! And one of my sushi rolls was a little dirty, it was a lobster tempura roll. The tempura is actually pretty thin in the roll, and they put about a small slither of avocado in it. Nothing major. I had one last week for my refeed and I was just fine. 

My refeeds are about 12 hours. I started at 7am. And as of right now… 8pm, I’m D-O-N-E! Now time to drink the rest of this water and get my 2nd dose of creatine in. Whew, eating is like my JOB on these days.
