Gotta Eat MORE!

Hey! Happy Friday!  Hope everyone had a good week!

I had a great upper body workout today! I did pullups, handstand pushups, 1 arm rows, DB chest presses, bicep curls, tricep pressdowns, and then finished up with some handstand practice. Fun! I love my workouts. I seriously don't know what my life would be like without lifting! It just makes me feel so good and puts me in a great mood!

For those who are interested, here are the workouts I did this week: http://lindsaystraininglog.blogspot.com/2013/05/may-13-18.html

So...I'm going to make a few tweaks to my nutrition. I haven't been tracking what I eat because I really don't like doing it, but I did the other day just because I wanted to make sure I was eating enough....and turns out, I'm not! Soooo I'm going to be adding in MORE carbs(even at dinner, ohmigoshI'mgonnagetsofat)and increase my calories back up to 2400-2500. I have got to get over this fear of getting fat that I have and just freakin' EAT! It's so dumb.

So...tell me what your workout was today! I'd love to hear it! :)

  1. What software did you use to track your calories? I would love to know if I'm eating enough!

    Thanks,

    1. Nice workouts. I also did front squats this week. PR'd actually, 132 lbs (more than body weight) so I was pretty proud. Now if only I could do a pullup. I had two body weight goals this month, pullup and pistol squat, but so far I've only accomplished the lower-body goal (of course). It was reassuring to hear you read about how long it took you to do the muscle-up, actually. Based on your handstands, you seem to have excellent bodyweight control, but it's nice to know it can be learned.

      By the way, there are other options out there, like caloriecount.com, but I think myfitnesspal has a bigger database? I like caloriecount because of the way it analyzes data and breaks down macros and micros.

    2. Nice job on your front squats! Yes, it just takes practice and patience-you'll get the pullup! I did those darn muscle ups from a box over and over and over again until I finally got it one day!
