Bugger. Adrenal fatigue, lo testosterone, lo oestrogen & lo progesterone & possibly menopause.
This explains everything - mood swings, bursting into tears at training for no apparent reason, not sleeping, zero motivation to train, not sleeping, struggling to lose fat, depressive episodes, hot flashes, anxiety attacks, cravings for sweet things, did I mention not sleeping?
No wonder I've been feeling like I'm not capable of making rational decisions!
I should probably stop my prep...but I'm not capable of making rational decisions!

How do you know I'm on comp prep?
Because my salads get bigger and the nutritional value goes through the roof.  This is my 17 food salad - spinach, baby chard, coral lettuce, carrot, raw red & white cabbage, green beans, asparagus, broccoli, cucumber, flaxseeds, sesame seeds, almonds, pepitas, chicken, sweet potato, hummus.
It used to be 19 foods but I'm allergic to tomatoes and capsicum now.

Now this is better - 1st time in abput 2 months I haven't felt dead on a monday!
Bizarrely, I put pre workout in my pre-bed drink instead if BCAA's!!
Maybe I've hit onto something here...
if didn't have to get up 4 times a night to pee, this would be just about perfect 😁

Disappointing week for 1st week of prep - not 1 single gram has come off and in fact today I was UP 1.9kg on this time last week!! WTF?? diet has been spot on and started off with my 3 days ayurvedic anti inflammatory, anti bacterial, antioxidant gut health and rebalancing protocol that normally sees at least 1kg of 'weight loss' by elimination of inflammation and water retention.  Then switched to my usual high protein, high volume, high veggie diet to fire up my metabolism. 
Training mon, tue, thur, fri also spot on, but wednesday I didn't train because I was absolutely completely bone crunchingly exhausted.

I just about made it through 1/2 day at work then came home and crashed. 
And this is the key to why I havent lost any weight this week - my sleep is totally f'd up at the moment. I'm going through a lot of stress at the moment and the knock on effect on my sleep is a disaster, as you can see from last night I got a mere 5 hrs with only 3 episodes of deep sleep which is not enough to repair and recover mentally or physically. And last night was one of the better nights!! So the lesson here is if you're trying to lose weight and have got stuck take a good look at your lifestyle, stress levels and sleep.

My mission is now to pull back on all the stressors in my life i.e. landing a new contract very quickly and prioritising my sleep!! #compprep #promissolympia #pnbamissolympia  #promissuniverse

Cheers! Comp prep starts tomorrow 🀀
OMG. After a massive 45 week season last year with so many huge personally meaningful, emotional achievements its only been 18 weeks since I stepped off stage. For the 1st time, I'm just not sure if I'm mentally ready for this, but the target comp is something special. It's something I put out on FB 6 years ago and got totally laughed at for in my novice naivete.
Its taken 6 years for someone to match my vision, to have the balls to pull it together and I have been personally asked to be on stage.
Which comp is it?

Its going to be good!! 😁
