I weighed in at 171.0 today.  Yesterday was a .4, the day before a .8. This tells me my metabolism has slowed to meet my caloric intake.  Funny how the body can adjust to everything so efficiently, huh?

So today I started the day with whey protein and some coffee.  I just had a lunch of fajita beef, peppers and onions with a little mozzarella to dress it up so I could pretend it was a cheesesteak sandwich.  I still miss bread.  Life’s stresses haven’t let up much so I’m fighting the urge to self-medicate with something fluffy & starchy.

I did a half-hour of easy biking today while getting some work done on my computer.  Tonight I get back to boot camp!  Hopefully the extra activity will get me past this plateau.

Courtney West of Houston is my inspiration for today.  Thanks, Courtney!

The Houston resident, who works as a personal trainer, earned professional status at the 2010 NPC USA Figure Championships. West’s victory in the Houston Pro Figure also guaranteed her a spot in the 2011 Figure Olympia. ~ Courtesy of Arnold Sports Festival
