I guess I should have included my definition of heavy lifting, which is the heaviest weight you can do no more than sets of 5 reps with. Since you mentioned higher reps, that's why I said you weren't doing heavy lifting. I didn't mean that the weight you were doing for 12 reps was light.
Oh yes you did! You think I'm weak! WOE IS ME! I'm off to off myself!
No, I catch your disco funky for sure.
And speaking of one of "those women", while I was doing my HIIT today, I saw one on the leg press, seriously, doing 20lbs. HELLO? Now I don't know if she's got an injury and her dr said to do 20, but, um, on the leg press? Isn't it like pushing air? Not like I'm miss hoity toity, I didn't start OFF pressing my body weight, but even 60 feels light. Whatever! Bygones!
Gostrydr - Maybe I just like talking to myself on this thread and then you all chime in for reassurance? Hee hee... nawww, not really. But yes, I agree about the body eating its own fat and all that, but yesterday was waaaaay different. I've never felt like that before it was really weird. And my carbs have been basically NONEXISTENT the past 7 days or so... so just thinking that I need to add some more back in.
Yeah, OJ is NOT my friend, so I wouldn't have had that anyway, but perhaps 4oz of protein shake or 8 ounces before weights tomorrow if I feel weird.
Today my cardio was great though. Last night I had a MOST EXCELLENT steak salad from a mexican joint, it had dressing AND salsa >gasp!< on it. It also came with a small bag of corn tortilla chips, about a serving. It was PERFECT. I ate them all... and then I had three forkfulls of brown rice... Still in ketosis today and my cardio didn't suffer at ALL. So maybe if I do at little sumthin' like that the night BEFORE... SOMETIMES that'll be good. Oh who knows! I'm just blithering on again because I'm CRAZY! I HAVE SMALL CHILDREN! I HAVE NO ONE TO TALK TO! TAKE PITY ON ME! Hee hee.
Thanks for your responses you guys... I feel babystepped and virtually loved.. sniffle!
And yes, Gostrydr, my HUSBAND is one of those Gatorade drinking fools. Gimme a fookin' BREAK already - ya work out 3 days a week and you think you "neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed" gatorade. PEESHAW!!!!!! Dumb dumb head.
Thanks again guys,
