The post about a soaking workout session, transforming and eating all the calories...

  • It's #smoothietime and it couldn't have come any sooner. My stomach was rumbling all night. I felt so empty. I'm downing this bad boy then heading to the gym. Leg day is my favorite. I'm soaked in sweat when I'm done and I love it! Makes me feel like I worked extra hard. I'm in Toronto all day on client visits. And today is a late day. I'm working into the evening. Coffee time will happen when I get back from my torture session with Tony. Then I've got to tackle my mileage. Have I mentioned how busy I am this week? Have a wonderful day and kick some ass:-)

  • Oi! Feeling a touch fatigued.
  • 20 minutes of HIIT on the dreadmill ✔
  • Legs✔
  • Upper body✔
  • Core ✔
  • I was completely soaked by the time I was done. Had a discussion with Tony about my body composition. One of the things I love about him is his bullshit free way of talking. He told me that I am not going to get smaller. He said, "Leigh, you're not a petite girl". Then he proceeded to poke my hip bones and ribs and said, "how will you get smaller here? You can't lose bone". He told me I'll tone and all my soft spots will become hard. That I can handle. It's just strange to be getting bigger again. I just have to remind myself that this time around its muscle, not fat. 
  • An important side note. I have to move. There were a couple possums on my porch when I stepped out this morning. If they're moving in, I'm outta here...

  • It's transformation Tuesday. I don't show my side profile too much. No real reason. I just don't have many side view before pics.

  • And I'm not done transforming yet. I got some muscles to grow. It looks like boxing is not in the cards for me this year. Tryouts are in the 26th of September and my arm lift is on the 22nd. I'd need to postpone 6 weeks to get ready and that ain't happening. But, I'm still gonna get into the best shape of my life via crossfit. My gym is attached to Steel City Crossfit and they have 6am classes M, W, F. That's perfect for me. Works well into my personal training schedule. So I'm joining Steel City for November 1st. I'll be completely healed by that time and ready to go to the next level. Boxing can happen next year. Or maybe sooner. The gym I do physio in has a boxing club...

  • Really, really shitty day today. Not going to dwell except to say that I'm glad to be going to sleep shortly. Tomorrow will hopefully be better. Today's eating was massive. I ate 4 chicken breasts when I got home from the gym. Then I proceeded to have lunch and dinner out with clients. My dinner was the Mandarin again. So calories high, protein high, fat a little bit too high. One thing I have down pat for sure is that my carbs are always low. Today was one of those days where it was overcast and gloomy. Perhaps that added to my bad mood. You know those days when you just don't want to adult anymore? That was me today. And look at me, I am dwelling. Or at least venting a little. I've not really been on Instagram today. I'm sorry I missed you all. I'll be back to check on you tomorrow. Peace...
