This week, I put my calories up slightly. I have been feeling run down but I’m not sick. So I’m thinking I must not have been eating enough for my training. This slight change has made a big difference and in 2 weeks I will reassess and I’m hoping I can put it up again. I’m loving my training, food, body and life right now. My head has made a massive switch and I’m loving it. 💜💜 #bodylove #bodyproud #trainingforlife #therapeutic #healthyeating #healthylife #healthymind

Feeling rundown

I have been trying to figure out why I have been so run down lately, I want to workout but just don’t have the energy. I’m not sick, I’m getting plenty of sleep, I’m eating well and exercising. At first I couldn’t understand why I would be feeling like this.

But yesterday I just clicked. I’m properly not having enough calories!  So I went into the IIFYM calculator and added an extra 100 calories. Only small to start off with. and will see how I’m feeling in 2 weeks time. 

With the way I’m training and my cardio at the moment, I’m not worried about gaining to much fat, I have put on a bit since my show, but my body seems to sit at this higher body fat % easier and I’m learning to embrace it. At the end of the day I’m still a lot smaller then I was 2 years ago.

I want to be stronger and I need more fuel to help with my lifts.

To some people, I may not be skinny enough, big enough, have too much muscle, not have enough muscle. But at the end of the day I’m happy where I am and have decided to stop focusing on looks. Though I do love posting muscle shots 💪💪. My new goals are now all strength based, which are put up on my fridge.  Eat big, lift big, enjoy life. 💝💝 #gymlife #gymbunny #chicksthatlift #chicksthatliftheavy #strength
