This has been a tough, crazy, busy, no-gym week. Due to some family things I have been out of the gym since Sunday and have been really busy dealing with all sorts of things I can't really blog about. Things are better now and have settled down so I'm playing catch up with school work and planning to get back to the gym tomorrow.
I am slightly changing my workout plan though. I've decided that the optional beginner's Lauren Gleisberg plan wasn't challenging enough for me so I'm jumping ahead into Phase 1 (which is what was suggested to me by Lauren in the first place... one of these days I will start listening to people's suggestions, especially when they know what they're talking about lol).
The beginner's plan is really meant for beginners and I started out with it because I wanted to give it a try and because there were a lot of exercises I didn't know how to do but now that I've done it for over a week, I definitely need to be challenged more and that will absolutely happen in Phase 1. I wrote out tomorrow's workout day in my workout notebook and, yeah, I'm definitely going to be challenged with Phase 1! I'm both slightly dreading it but looking forward to it at the same time because it'll be a lot tougher than what I was doing last week!
Tomorrow is also my weigh-in day but I'm not concerned about it. I haven't tracked things for a few days due to the aforementioned issues but I have kept things keto and I've only gotten on the scale once this week (which is huge for me) so I'm assuming things will stay about the same. Either way, my focus is remaining on muscle growth, getting lean and dropping body fat so I'll go with whatever number it shows but I'm not going to get crazy with it.
I think that about covers it for now and I can't wait to be back in the gym tomorrow provided things remain as stable as they are now.
