I’m wrapping up a “moderate” training and nutrition week with a refeed day (high carb – about 45% of my intake), some sprints and MECCA‘s competition class. I feel pretty good about what I’ve accomplished over the last three weeks: Geoff says he’s pleased with my lifts (did I mention I benched 135 for three reps? Well, two and a half reps…). John tells me I’m defying the law of thermodynamics with my fat loss. I’m 150.4 right now. With this rate of fat loss — especially with a “very hard” training week coming up–I should be under 149 by the end of next weekend. Kyle measured my bodyfat at 20%, which is probably lower than it actually is, but I’m visibly leaner and that’s what matters.
So, yeah, I quit my job. In one week I will be working full time for Phil and John at Precision Nutrition as their IT gal. This is the life change I was talking about – I now have a situation that most people dream of.
I have to head to the gym, but I’ll talk more about the work at PN in another entry. I’ll leave you with this thought, though: don’t let what other people think you should do get in the way of what you want to do.
