So the last week of training before the tournament is finally here!
I feel good, training has been going very well, no injuries and my weight is just where I want it to be. It's nice when hard work leads to results! But that's usually the case isn't it? Results comes from blood, sweat and tears. For me it's been lots and lots of sweat!!
It's funny how quickly fight training goes by though. Before I started training it seemed like so much work: training 6 days a week, running 6 days a week, losing 10 pounds... Say what?!? Seriously, when I thought about it in January it seemed impossible, although I knew I had done it many times before. I had a little bit of winter blues/blahs and that did not help at all. I was just like: "no way. there's just no way." Then the weather got better and I snapped out of it, just in time too lol
And then you just go through the motions and voila, already in the last week and it wasn't so bad after all! The most amazing part is that I feel great! It's definitely from working out regularly which gets your endorphins going AND from not eating so much. We really don't need to eat as much as we do, makes you feel groggy and heavy, and just slows you down.
But why oh why does eating feel so darn good then? Argh!... lol
I'm happy about discovering new healthy recipes though. I'm most definitely going to add more vegetarian meals to my everyday diet. After giving up meat for almost a month now, I decided I want to eat less meat from now on. However, I don't think I'm ready to give it up altogether. I miss eating meat though I now realize I don't need it. Maybe someday in the future I'll become vegetarian, maybe...
