So, thankfully, it wasn't a dream or the result of under eating, I am lighter than yesterday and firmly in the 50's.
This morning we celebrated an unassisted, unmedicated bathroom event. First time since New Zealand. Yay!
My period is due tomorrow. I don't feel like it is coming at all. Although I know I wished for it to stop, I didn't want it to stop so soon. I want the weight I am now to be my off season weight, but I can't be maintaining at a BF% that stops my period, can I? Maybe I got lucky and hit menopause!!
This morning I increased all my weights and dropped back to 10 reps. I must have needed it because I haven't work so hard in a while - I was sweating, red faced and on the verge of crying like a baby. I have outgrown the girl weights on my bench press and now use the big boys 25lb ones. I am so tough :)
I was completely shattered by the end of the lifting and then had to do sprint intervals on the treadmill. My instructions are to hit 11km/hr + on the one minute sprints. I only managed 10km and even then I was perilously close to falling off the treadmill. I was so sweaty I nearly dissolved in a puddle on the floor.
I am looking forward to Easter because my gym is open every single day. Every other gym I have belonged to has always been closed on public holidays so this is a nice change. It looks like there are no classes though. I might shuffle things around so I get 4 unhurried sessions in and use my rest days on work days.
Sad that I look forward to training time and not Easter eggs ... well, maybe not so sad after all.
