trumpeter26's Journal, 17 February 2013

The past week or so has been rough, it has been testing me mentally. I've realized the past few weeks, theres been a few days each week that I will come home and binge eat (apparently it a subjective binge because it is all healthy, paleo food...and some dark chocolate) but I still think too much food is too much food. I'm trying to experiment with upping my calories, and I will continue to do carb refeed days once a week...possibly twice a week to see if that helps. I realize now that stress from work, lack of sleep, and pushing myself to train with all that stress may have been effecting my hunger more than I thought because I seem to stress eat during the week, then on the weekends I am completely fine. Ok so I may have done crossfit on 1 hour of sleep after valentine's day...but I hit a PR by back squatting with 185lbs for a set of 3! That is 8lbs more than I weigh. Until Tuesday I think, I had not ever been able to back squat as much as I weigh. So it's pretty awesome that even though I am losing weight, my lifting numbers are going up..unlike what most people thought would happen. The past few weeks:
Snatch - 45kg ~ 99lbs (the weight that I had failed and messed up my leg with)
Clean and jerk - 59kg ~ 130lbs
Back squat (x3) - 185lb
Front squat - 60kg ~ 132lbs

Yesterday was my second time doing carb refeed, all this weekend I have NOT tracked what I have eaten, not fat, carbs, OR protein. I demolished 4 bananas, a pint of blueberries, a sweet potato, 2 larabars, a bottle of kombucha, and a 2 serving package of dried mangos. Now...I had been bloated the past few days despite not really binging. I woke up this morning and I was way less bloated and I lost another lb from the one I lost yesterday. My friend usually bloats from carb day...I don't know whats happening but I like it. So I really guess being able to work out AND rest without stress helps with the weightloss. Whoda thunk?


Yup - your body needs rest time - and the carbs you are choosing are good ones...
