More. Protein. Please. (I think?)
Whelp… good days and bad days with this whole recovery thing, right? This week I have had a few days of total self-loathing for my own body and absolute envy for everyone elses.
I think my body is finally understanding that I am trying to keep on the fat with the calories I have been feeding it… and now it is. Yes, this is Good, but definitely still a YIKES and freak-out flag flying in my head some days. Really, it comes down to me wishing I was not so shallow and caught up on appearances. Seriously, why do I care what other athletes think about my body or what I think that they think about it?
My dad is the greatest when I send him freak-out text messages…
My body has been holding on to the calories I have been feeding it. I can tell in a few ways..
- Tummy rolls.
- Tighter jeans (definitely need new jeans before fall.
- My boobs are much bigger… just trust me on this 😉 (ok so this is a huge positive!!)
- Thigh cellulite I notice when I sit on chairs in class.
Ok WOW so sorry you had to read that. Depressing and I am sure you are all rolling your eyes at me. Sorry sorry , I am like a broken record! I did not write this post intending to bore you all and have a “woe is me” pity-party.
THIS IS GOOD!!! This means I will get my period soon and be HEALTHY FOR LIFE!!!
What I wanted to say… was that I have decided that in accompanying my fat increase… I want some more muscle as well. —> cue in the PROTEIN!!
I have decided to really focus on upping my protein intake and (once again) decreasing my fruit (okay, mainly APPLE) intake. As you (may) know, Apples are my obsession. There is no control there. Easily eat 4 or 5 for breakfast.
But yes. More protein.
((Fun fact, I actually have NO CLUE what I am talking about… so if I can get a “confirmation” or a “WTF are you talking about Andrea??” that would be great 🙂 ))
Yesterday I met some girls for a very slow, social 5:45am 5.5 mile run!
This morning, by the time you read this… hopefully I will have put in a moderately pace 8 miler. But then again… maybe not 🙂 You never know when it comes to a “planned run”!
I have a terrible school week next week and have been trying to spend my days as productive as possible. Ya…. about that….. hard to be productive when you are reading hundreds of pages out of a book titled: “Methods Matter: Improving Causal Inferences in Educational and Social Science Research”
Umm… Ya. Gross.
“Have a Great Wednesday Everyone! Do something nice for someone else just because!“
