Finding Critical Mass
|Noun||1.||critical mass – the minimum amount (of something) required to start or maintain a venture|
Yesterday started entirely too early. I’d received some unpleasant news late on the night prior so 5am came too soon. Luckily I had made my protein pumpkin pie smoothie the night before so I grabbed that, a cup of coffee and a bottle of water and was out the door to Get Sexy San Antonio Boot Camp.
I was ridiculously weak during my workout and began to question my habit of working out on an empty stomach. There was no energy to be found and I had to drink water throughout the half hour. I did everything I could to failure for the half hour. Apparently it’s still OK because this morning my quadriceps muscles (front thigh) appeared out of nowhere. They look pretty good if I say so myself.
My arms are improving too! If I do the biceps pose, you can see the definition between my deltoids (shoulder muscles) and my biceps. Though the scale hasn’t moved from 174, I know some magical stuff is happening. Eventually I’ll get to a point of critical (muscle) mass, dial in my diet, and start seeing some metabolic changes that bring the numbers on the scale down. For now, I’m pretty motivated by the physiological changes I’m seeing and feeling in muscle tone.
What I FED MY BODY yesterday:
Breakfast (immediately after my workout): Protein Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Second Breakfast (starving): 2 low carb tortillas with crunchy peanut butter
Lunch: 2 eggs, 1 sausage patty, 2 low carb tortillas
Supper: 1 cup of homemade spaghetti sauce without the pasta (made with crushed tomatoes, lean meats, peppers, onions and mushrooms)
Dinner: Hazelnut Cream Protein Shake (2 scoops vanilla whey, 1 package instant hazelnut coffee, cinnamon)
